It's right under the forum title on the forum thread view screen (http://www.styleforum.net/forum/list/5/men-s-clothing)



Mark Forums Read marks ALL subforums read, across all of SF. Under vB, you could selectively mark a subforum as having been read, while leaving others unread. This was quite useful, especially if you got interrupted by something in the middle of a session reading SF. If it's straightforward, can this functionality be restored please?

You're welcome.

The "ebay suits, sportcoats, and other clothing" thread seems to have disappeared.

Clicking the "sitcky" link at the top of the MC classified page gives you the error message:

ERROR [NoDataFoundException] (0)
No data found
If you report this error, please include the following timestamp: 1311089397.1913

Having trouble "closing" classifieds. I click the button and nothing happens
post #216 of 345
Is there any way to have "my posts" listed in the order (reverse order) that they were made? At the moment its basically a subscription list, and if I want to return to a thread that hasn't been updated, I've still got to trawl through 10+ pages of threads.
post #217 of 345
Perhaps my two issues have been covered, but I really haven't time to read the entire thread.

While I generally like the new site ... I find it somewhat sluggish/slow ... and closing the site can take a bit of time (not good when a client walks in!).

Exactly. This is basic forum functionality that I cannot seem to find here. Please provide again.

A moderator/admin may have to approve your post when you are new. We are all still getting used to the system and doing all kinds of things, so there has been delay. Sorry about that.

I admit that I do find this frustrating, too. We have a lot of really popular threads on SF, and most of us have posted in all of them at least once; thus our My Posts is polluted with others' bumps of those threads.

Just set it to subscribe to every thread you post in (without email alerts) an when you are done with a thread, just click unsubscribe and it will stop polluting your feed.

Now, "My Posts" gives me the same list, but they're sorted by the last time ANYBODY posted in them. So even if my "ask a question" post was answered 2 years ago, that thread might still be at the top of my list, because someone else posted in it today. And the thread in which I posted yesterday could be anywhere; I have to hunt around for it.

How can I get "My Posts" sorted the way it was before?

 

I found My Posts to get frustrating after a while and started using Subscriptions instead on the old site. I'm not sure that My posts or Threads I posted in was sorted by your own post order. I always thought it was sorted by last reply. Maybe I'm wrong but the current function works about as well for me as the old one... which is why I use Subscriptions instead. :)

Yes, I broke that. They are looking into it. Terribly sorry.

I think I'm not understanding because that isn't how I used the old system. As far as I can tell, it works about the same in terms of what is marked read, but I am sure I am not getting exactly what you mean.

Using the Rich Text editor, how do you make a clickable text link?

 

When using the 'Ad link'  function above (or what it's called - when I mouse over the functions, some of them are in my native language and not English), I get a pop up window asking for the URL, but I don't get the (usually following) option to write the text for that link. As it is now I might as well just copy and paste the link directly into the post...

I don't think you can do it the same way as the old editor. You can type out the link text you want, such as "click here", then highlight it with your cursor and click the link button. It will then add the link to that text. I hear the editor is being worked on/replaced.

Can you give us your browser/OS? I suspect it may have to do with the orientation before uploading, which some viewers (on your computer) would correct for you. There is often an orientation encoded in an image which some things read and some don't, while the pixel data are actually the same in the image, so while Picasa for example will know to rotate your image, the forum uploader won't. It could be that, or it could be a bug, but I'm not seeing it from anyone else currently (that I have noticed).

Where is this little button that's supposed to work like the old forum function?

Even in threads that "darken" (meaning I've read and accessed them before), the "First Unread" quote box button takes me to the very first post of the thread, rather than to where I last accessed. I'm assuming too that none of the data about to which post we'd accessed prior in any thread beyond our subscriptions was saved or transfered over?

None of the 'last read' data were transferred over, no. From my personal use though, clicking on the quote box icon on the left seems to do what the 'first unread' thing did before. I may be missing something based on differences in "browsing style" between me and others, though. I will ask for clarification on the differences between vB and this system.

Once this happens, you cannot click forward to the page you were on. For example. If I was on page 2 and clicked on a post, when I hit the back button it returns me to page 1 rather than page 2. At this point, I cannot click to page 2 using the "2" button or the "Next" button. If I was on page 3 and clicked a post, when I hit back it again returns me to page 1 and locks the "3" button. I have tested this on Firefox and Chrome and can recreate this problem with ease.

This is a now-known bug and is being worked on currently.

Yes, a "lot" of clothes is fine. Fok and I are discussing potential changes to the B&S rules to allow more flexibility in listing styles as well.

post #220 of 345

Couple more questions:

 

Posting images: Is it no longer possible to post an image from one's own photo hosting site? I like to use Photobucket and wasn't able to post a photo using the regular [IMG] tags earlier today. Also, if one uploads an image through the SF interface, is it possible to edit/remove that image later?

 

Images in B&S forum: I find the extra step of clicking thumbnails and waiting for enlargements cumbersome. Is there a way to still post large size images continuously in a seller's post? It's a much quicker way to see if you're interested in an item.

 

BTW, as a buyer, I really like the one-item-at-a time-listings. especially with the category sorter. A size sorter would make it golden.

I find that I have to hit the "plain text" button a lot, or image formatting gets messed up. Also, try using lower case letter for the "img" tags.

Sorry about the long quote, but I wanted to edit out the quote below to react only to that part. However, that part wasn't included in the quote I got when clicking the Quote button. Might have to do with the length of the quote, but I thought I'd point it out.

What I wanted to do was answer to this (I put it here manually by cut and paste):

I am able to post inline images from the BBcode editor, which seems to be the more reliable one. You have to go to your User Settings area to select it.

As for SF uploaded images, you can delete them from your albums. Go to your profile and you should see your albums. There is a link to 'edit album' and you can delete them from there.

The first is a pain in the backside if you use the Rich Text Editor (which I do too, because it avoids the visual messiness of code everywhere). There's a workaround to this, if you want to use an external imagehost. Instead of copypasting the img UBB code, copypaste the <img src> HTML code instead. Write your reply as normal, but when you get to the stage that you would normally paste in the img UBB code, click the Source button in the Reply box, and then copypaste the <img src> HTML stuff instead.

 

Yes, it's clunky and I really, really hope there's a way to restore the ability to either type code normally in Rich Text Editor OR to not display HTML (only UBB) in the basic BBCode text editor.

 

But the workaround at least solves the problem you're having.

 

And a BIG +1 on having full size inline images in B&S instead of the click to enlarge. Partly as a potential buyer, but also when it comes time to sell, it's really good to be able to put a big image right there in the thread.

 

(personally, I'm in the camp of preferring big threads with multiple items because I prefer browsing to searching when reading B&S)

Both of these can be done with HTML pictures just like you would use when posting an ebay add. This is a really nice feature of the new updated forum as you can now copy and past a ebay add directly into the SF and the formating will be the same. You might need to use the "Source" button to toggle between rich text editing (to see the pictures) and BB editng (html).

 

Here's an exmaple. This line of text copied from photobucket.com give you the picture below - <a href="http://s1101.photobucket.com/albums/g432/Clothing4Ebay/Blazers/JPress/?action=view&amp;current=P1180892.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i1101.photobucket.com/albums/g432/Clothing4Ebay/Blazers/JPress/P1180892.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a>

 

Photobucket

 

This line of text gives you a small image that is clickable and is centered: <center>    
<a href="http://s1101.photobucket.com/albums/g432/Clothing4Ebay/Blazers/JPress/?action=view&amp;current=P1180892.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i1101.photobucket.com/albums/g432/Clothing4Ebay/Blazers/JPress/th_P1180892.jpg" border="0" alt="" ></a>
