It is a pain. You can deal with it using the source code editor (add a <p> to the end of all the code, then go back to WYSIWYG and you'll be able to write on the next line)

 

Or just use undo

It's not as much that I can't figured it out, more that if Huddler has really been around this long it should have this kind of crap worked out already by now. How many million people did they say use there systems? Seriously this is like Huddler BETA 1.0.

 

PS - Thanks KitAkira for taking the time to explain it as some people might not know how. Reread my reply and didn't want you to think it was mean spirited.

So how would you suggest that we do that? We all buy new high-specced computers and invest in gigabit internet connections?

Myself I'm a member of several NON-Huddler forums, and SF2.0 has just become such a chore to use, takes ages to load pages and is heavy on CPU resources. So I don't just spend much time here any more.

Just looked at the mens clothing classifieds a minute ago and there were 12 items (which = 12 classifieds) that were just bumped all from the same seller and several items (6 or 7 items) from a different seller. IMO the one item per thread is ridiculous as it defeats the purpose of bumping. How long will a thread stay on the front page if a seller with 20 items lists them all in the same ten minutes, and repeats the cycle when he gets his turn to bump them?

 

If the classifieds would work like ebay where you can search sizes, colors, brands etc. then the need for bumping would be eliminated but for now where the search ability is limited to article types only, it seems that bumping is the best/only way to advertise/gain visibility. Poorly thought out to say the least.

I think it would be a huge improvement to simply replace the "recent activity" feed with the forum layout....or can I have permission to change my own view?

I haven't had time to read through this entire thread, but I'd like to say that I think the changes are a big improvement in the BS department. Steve Smith is an outstanding seller and raises some legitimate concerns, but I suspect that will be ironed out. As a dyed-in-wool thrifter, these changes give me hope. Death to Ebay, and all power to the people.

Does it actually inform you when you get a thumbs up? Only posts I really read the thumbs ups for are those that mention thumbs ups.

I am actually noticing some serious lag on my Mac. When I was my PC it was fine. Weird.

nah, you don't get a notification or anything like that. i'm not sure if that's something you can adjust in your personal settings or not. only posts that receive thumbs ups show a number next to the thumbs up button.

i guess people will start using it on the waywt threads to leave comments like "great fit!" or "swag"

So I have to go back and actively check to see if I ever get a thumbs up? That's kind of useless lol

I've been on numerous forums thus far, and every time a change was made there was a serious amount of bitching, and nothing good could be done. Not to say that this is your situation though, the lag is quite real (allthough im on a 3 to 4 year old macbook, and its not that bad for me) and it probably should be fixed. But besides the performance issues, its just a manner of getting used to the new controls imho.

For some (such as myself, at least) I'd wager it's not a "controls" issue but a "Too much getting in the way of a forum experience" issue. I hate 90% of what Web 2.0 has brought. Flashy things that pop up, scripts from five different sites, a huge sidebar taking up room for posts (although, gratefully, this is a vertical bar that uses the extensive horizontal space monitors now have) are all intrusive. To me, the hallmark of a good website is one that delivers what you need and then gets out of your way. Does this SF do that? Clearly, people think not [even outside the realm of performance issues].

Keep in mind, this was first and foremost a forum. If someone enters and things Start To Appear (TM) they're going to be thrown off.
