For those who have questions on the new forums, please feel free to post here.   Many of us have been using them for a week or so now and know a few tricks of the trade, so to speak.

The first place you should look is the help topics http://forums.poz.com/index.php?action=help

They really do answer just about everything.

But if something doesn't click for ya, ask away !!

Can you receive notification of posts to a thread in a "pm" here, instead of by email?   I liked getting pm notifications, but not so many emails....

Annoyances:

It's STILL TOO GREY AND SMALL.  Why don't we have the option to choose different colours/layouts?. SMF has LOADS of alternative, well-behaved themes.  The small text ain't too bad an issue, cos you can increase the text size, EXCEPT it don't increase the text you're typing to make a post.  Whch makes it a bad issue on a big monitor.

The Tahoma font.  {{indeed changing the default font to Verdana like the one I'm using here}} would eliminate the SMALL issues.

You can't save a thread offline.

The "notification" messages (for threads where you ask to get Notified) are just dumb, like "Someone has posted in the thread" rather than, say, the first 10 words of what they said.

SUPER ANNOYING is you can't subscribe to a thread.  The old AM "Today" page had a handy subscribed threads box.

The bug, already mentioned by JRE, in the templates that stops logged in users shrinking the summary box on the left.

Often, scrollbars within boxes (like the Users online list)

Is there a way to reverse the order of listing for pms?

(So the most recent is at the top?)

I can't seems to find it.

RAB,

Open a window with your PM page on it.

Now, look at the thick blue bar at the top that has

Date Subject From

written across it.

Look at the Date part. You should see a little arrow to the right of it. If it's pointing up, then you have it set to show you the oldest first. Click on it to make the arrow point down. This should make the newest PM show at the top of the list.

If the arrow appears next to one of the other headings, then you need to click on Date. You will then see the arrow next to Date and can change it accordingly.

By the way, these arrows appear on the main page of each forum, again in the thick blue bar. It's probably by the Last Post column on the far right side, but you can change it to whichever column you want.

Hope that makes sense to you.

Ann

You can set this by viewing your Profile and selecting Look and Layout Preferences, there's a checkbox to show most recent PM's first

when you add someone to your 'buddy list', where does that list show up?

when you add someone to your buddy list, they show up in the normal locations just like any other user, but just in bold type.... so the users online and the most recent active in the last 15 min will show their name in bold.   It is not very OBVIOUS unless you are looking for it.

RAB and Newt,

If you want to be able to switch the order of your PMs around (which can be handy when looking for an older PM, or if you want to look for a specific PM from a specific person) then DO NOT tick the box in the Look and Layout section of your profile. If you click the box there for keeping the most recent PM on top, then you lose the ability to change the direction of the arrows on all three of the headings.

gerry

Just for you sweetie, I'll make this a sticky for now. I'm going to do a Welcome sticky for this forum and I'll take some of the more frequently asked questions and put them into a FAQ post in that thread.

The Welcome sticky for this forum will be different from the other two - similar, but different. I might eventually create Welcome stickies for the other forums too... all in good time. I'll probably do it the next rainy day we have when I can't spend time in my garden. (The stickies for the other forums, that is! I'll do this one ASAP)

Bailey DingoDoggie,

Please check your PMs!  ;)

EVERYONE...

Please keep asking questions so I know what needs to be in the FAQ post. Thanks! :)

Ann

I have to agree with Newt on the blah Gray color scheme, reminds me of watching a Black& White TV with the contrast turned down....Also, as someone who likes to post links, I miss the feature that allowed one to put a title on a link like " Click Here" or 'Hot Porn" or "Cute and Filthy Joke" instead  of just the URL.
Speaking of URL, will the address for the New forums eventually be AIDSmeds.com ?
Oh, and one minor thing, I miss some of the Emoticons from the old forums like the Wine, The Rose, and ofcourse the Beer. However I think the new Animated smileys are adorable, especially :-*

On the Bright side, I pretty much love the upgrade and all of the cool Doo- Dads that we now have at our disposal,
and despite the fact that I deliberately misspell Spellchhecker every time I mention it, Im sure its a welcome addition as well.

lwood, you can still post clickies like that, you just need the code

Code: [Select]

so if I enter this:

Code: [Select]

you get this:

Maybe it's just my dial-up connection but this seems so very slow in changing from page to page.

If it stays this slow I'll be getting more work done around the house and less time slowly viewing the forums.

I was going to mention this before the formal switchover, but as there's currently a thread growing in Living With that will soon be Enormous  ( Re 'Introduce yourself') Id like to suggest adding a section to the member profile that would allow say, 2000- 5000 words as an sort of 'all about me' introduction... with the growing membership, I think its a pretty good idea,   surely the new software can handle it....

Ok I have a question.

Dammit. ;)

In the old forums there was a nifty function in the PM section called "Export" which allowed me to export the (often vicious and defamatory) PM's I'd sent and received as a text file and then save it to my local filesystem (that's geekspeek for hard drive), thus preserving all the nasty things that I and my mates say behind everybody's back.

There was a limit of 50 messages in the old days. I'm quickly approaching that limit here. I cannot find a similar export function in these new forums. Therefore my question:

Is there anyway for a queen to export her private messages here in the New and Improved AIDSMEDS Forums?

In breathless anticipation of a reply,

MtD

So what's with the minature font size, when a post summary shows, or a quote?  That font has to be what, 4 or 5.  They have to be kidding if that's the best they can do.  It's even smaller than the Blog font and that's right out of Munchkin land.  Surely there is help for tired or diseased eyes.  Some of the combos here, especially the red glow font, are totally unreadable to me.  Different themes or color schemes would really help.

Hi all,when I registered as alisenjafi with my other e mail I couldn't get an activation #. Kept getting error, even though it says I am registered. Not sure if it has to do with mac OS X, Safari or some hidden preference. Anyway I used my UK e mail and another computer. Which I tried to get my original reg on and also got error. So I am registered twice. What can I do to get an activation for alisenjafi, even though I am registered as that as well, and delete this one?

I also tried finding help, to sort this out but no luck. I don't use this e mail much , ecxept to talk with Brit and Irish soldiers, which being in America doesn't get used much anymore.
Cheers
Johnny

what is wrong with the blasted post. Sometimes when I try to post the damn thing locks up then comes up with a lame message that some other person posted while I was doing my hunt and peck post. So who cares, and sometimes the post I labored over is lost. I'm tired of retyping so screw it, if the system dumps my post then that's karma for you!

The one thing that bugs me is that when hitting the back button you always end up going to the top of the page instead of the last thread you had opened up.  Then you have to scroll back down the page again and again.....
I liked the old forums much better even though there were not all these nifty gadgets as this one has. :(

i will try to answer all questions... but I can tell you for most, it's 'i don't know' or 'i need more information' like screenshots.

I haven't responded to most here because i don't know the answer and was hoping somebody else did... so i'l give a comprehensive list on saturday of my responses.

matty, there is no export feature I know of here.   Hopefully, our limits are much more increased than before in light of that.... but you can always copy/paste them to a text doc if you like... not an optimum solution, but a feasible one.

So what's with the minature font size, when a post summary shows, or a quote?  That font has to be what, 4 or 5.  They have to be kidding if that's the best they can do.  It's even smaller than the Blog font and that's right out of Munchkin land.  Surely there is help for tired or diseased eyes.  Some of the combos here, especially the red glow font, are totally unreadable to me.  Different themes or color schemes would really help.

good point... most people don't need much reminder about what was previously posted, so i think that's why it's in small font.. to prevent people quoting something huge and taking up alotta space....

quoting something serves as a reminder, but isn't really meant to be just like the original post.

perhaps that should be changed for us who are visually challenged... for me, i hate people quoting and entire damn 20 paragraph post to only say "i agree".

I cannot seem able to change my avatar ....it works with the personlised ones through the site, but not when I upload my own :(. Anyone else having same problem?

(Pic is jpg 90x68 but when I press change I still get the old one on)

(edited to add more info :))

i have no idea on this?   Has the problem resolved itself?   I don't think there should be any delay in updating the avatar (as there is no approval process for it), so it should update almost immediately.

Further input is required here.
