Where are you seeing this issue?
Sorry, I should have given more details.

The old "see watched threads" URI was, for some reason, watched/threads/all. This is the URL I (and presumably others) saved for quick access. Now it looks like this:

1559518980125.png

The new URI is watched/threads (without the /all - I *think* that just meant the watched threads with new posts). Up to you if you want to preserve backwards compatibility but it's generally a good idea to forward the former URIs to your new structure rather than 404 the user.

I miss the functionality of seeing how many unread posts are in the current thread, which used to appear after the page numbers.

Over the weekend, I only looked at the updated site on mobile. It's better.

This is how it looks on a desktop running Windows and Chrome. Some of us don't run our browsers full screen. This is not an optimal viewing experience. Are there any tools that you can turn on that would allow us to condense the text in the columns so that thread titles don't take up 2-4 lines?

I'm the same as you. I think that at very least, we could resize the different columns. There is no need for that much space in that third column. Putting this on the list for our designer. Thanks.

Check it now. We removed the user avatars, so that it looks more like it did in the last version of the software.

Cheers,

Fok.

how do you set up polls in a thread? Thanks!

Post a poll is at the bottom of the "Post new thread" process. Once you select that, these options appear:

There are a lot of pictures that don’t show anymore if you go back a bit in old threads (I often spend giddy evenings scrolling through the Bonafè thread). I am pretty sure they most of them used to show up.

so I would have to start a whole new thread for the poll separate from the old thread of entries?
I'm sorry, I don't understand what you're trying to do here. Are you trying to edit a poll? Add a poll to a thread that doesn't have one yet?

Yes, we know. We have the pictures, and redirects are being written to make them visible.

He's been running the Friday Challenge, and would like to create a poll within the existing thread with the entries so far.

OK, if you are the thread starter, you should be able to go to the top of the thread, hit the button on the top-right of the first message box, which is where "more options" are held. Inside of that menu, you should see "create poll".

Having harder time than before adding in pictures and getting to my galleries right now.

Used to be able to access media from the profile silhouette from the top bar, but now need to go to my personal profile, click on media link from there and add photos from there.

Similarly adding photos to a post I need to go to above and copy the image address from my album and post that in the insert image link option rather than being able to pull straight from my galleries.

Though maybe there is an easy way to do this that I am not seeing.

This is a small thing, but I've noticed that when a blocked member quotes you now, you get an email notification, whereas before you didn't.
