    If you’ve got any questions about or problems with the new forum, then post them here and I’ll try to be helpful, or some shit.

    I think it’s quite nice, don’t you?

    Do I have to sign in on every new post?
    I like the unsubscribe!

    You shouldn’t have to, no. Once you’re logged in to the site it should stay that way.

    #200409

    Pecospete666

    I log in to get into the site then made 1 post and it asked for name&password,but the second post it did not ask,so maybe it has to do with that thread only. I like the search!

    Ah, I wasn’t sure about the subscribe function (I usually hate them) so glad at least one person is finding use with it.

    Also, let me know if you keep getting login problems, Pete.

    Does WordPress do a preview button?

    #200415

    No just that first post!
    The time is nice too! no more 24hr clock. Great!

    Very likely, I’ll put it on me list.

    Maybe I’m missing something ‘cos I’m only on me phone, but we don’t seem to have an option to go straight to the new posts anymore. So I’ve got to remember what comments/replies I’ve read, and how many there were last time, in order to work out if there’s anything new and amusing to read. Which is a wee but frustrating.

    #200426

    genericnerdyusername

    Must be your mobile, Si. I just have to click on the time given for the latest post and I’m brought straight to it.

    #200427

    srmcd1

    I’m on my home computer, and I’m not getting that option either. Now I can’t tell if there’s anything worth reading around here.

    #200428

    Jonathan Capps

    G&T Admin

    It’s a fair point. By way of explanation, WordPress doesn’t track what users have visited which pages and when, so knowing exactly what’s been posted since you last looked at the thread or post isn’t possible out of the box. I’m looking for a solution to this, though. For now, though, as genericnerdyusername said, if you click on the ‘XXX minutes / hours ago’ link it’ll take you to the latest post which should allow you to scan back and find where you were a little easier than starting at the top.

    #200429

    si

    Fair enough. Oh, another thing – I’d just got used to being able to edit posts, and now…well, I can’t. Dunno if that’s something that can be altered, but…y’know.

    Email of threads works! Great Now I will know when people talk shit about me!

    And you’d have time to read all those email notifications?

    #200444

    Registration was ultra quick

    Having the ability to be able to post on G&T might take a bit of getting used to, might have to go back to lurking again.

    #200445

    Jimboid

    Yes, an option to see which threads have new posts would be good…and ideally the identity of the most recent poster, a la the old forum.

    Saves me a good few seconds.

    Oh, who am I kidding. I’d only spend the time wanking over clown porn.

    #200446

    I like the new pagination.

    I miss the banners but I assume they are being worked on.

    #200447

    Jonathan Capps

    G&T Admin

    Yeah, banners will be incrementally added. Poor Danny has to create ones in the new size!

    Recent poster now shows again. Definitely works best that way.

    I miss the old pagination. Doesn’t anyone else think that was a great feature of the forum?

    #200461

    ori-STUDFARM

    On other forums I use, my favourite buttons are always the “View Active Topics” and the “View Unread Posts Since Last Visit”. But I wouldn’t know if this forum format can support those things. Not a problem if it doesn’t….I’ll just have to try and remember where I was.

    #200462

    Pecospete666

    “Listen” works great on IPad!

    #200463

    Jonathan Capps

    G&T Admin

    Ori, I reckon active topics is a little bit redundant on this forum because it’s never hugely busy.

    I really want to get unread replies sorted, but it’s proving to be strangely difficult to achieve, as with regular comments.

    So I’m going through the forum from the olden days, right? I click Phil’s Merry Christmas thread and find myself catapulted into the year 2011, viewing Danny’s Merry Christmas topic instead.

    How’s that work, then?

    Wormhole. You’re not thinking fourth dimensionally.

    Hah, looks like a URL clash. It shows both threads (the older one is at the bottom). I’ll add to my list of shit I need to fix.

    #206498

    Jonathan Capps

    G&T Admin

    That thread is fixed now, and it’s *possible* any other clashes should be fixed too (god bless automatic database repairs). If anyone stumbles on others, if they could report it here that would be most useful.

    I am an idiot. I’ll endeavour to do this as soon as possible, because there are quite a few people who want one.

    #206653

    Pecospete666

    This spam problem,could this be why the site loads at the speed of dark? It’s takes 30 seconds or longer to load here in the U.S. I know I am on NSA watch list but that shouldn’t slow me down! They just mirror what I do. And I thought the server was here in the U.S. so I should pickup a few milliseconds! What are you thought J.C.?

    #206660

    Jonathan Capps

    G&T Admin

    It could well be, actually. Also, our hosts isn’t particularly fast, as people trying to get on the site on Thursday nights last autumn will attest.

    #206938

    HelloMabel

    So, there’s probably nothing Cappsy can do about this one. I’m just weirded out by this and wondering if it’s ever happened to anyone else:

    Somehow one of my words in another thread got turned into a roll-over link to an advertisement. I didn’t do it. When I refreshed the page, the link was gone.

    Hopefully it was a one-time fluke and won’t become a regular thing.

    #206945

    Ben Paddon

    That sounds like you might have some adware running on your computer. If you have any sort of antivirus software I’d suggest giving it a spin.

    On the topic of glitches, sorry mods, if you received a new topic post from me twice. It timed out on first try, then told me the second time it had already been submitted. I don’t know if it’s the site or my iPad what done it.

    Definitely nothing at our end – sounds like something dodgy installed on your browser.

    Images are a bit weird at the moment. Your post is now back in the right thread, the forum sometimes orphans replies.

    JC I wasn’t Troll baiting! It was just an amusing story to entertain fellow site members!

    You let that cunt go on for days,insulting and demeaning members!

    I think you need to evaluate you criteria for baiting and let the members say what they want to read! They always made it known in the past!

    I feel discriminated against!

    I intend on complaining to the Internet God in the Sky about my treatment

    SgtSmiley hasn’t been either of the last two trolls, through. I don’t particularly want to give this whole thing any more air time, especially with unpleasant jokes.

    If it helps, the Vogans agree with me.

    #208629

    Pecospete666

    Ok! I ran out of material for that subject anyway!
    I’ll take the curse of 6s off your network!
    If they show up just put in the password 666 In the trolls purse.
    Adios!

    Re: The tiny image being giantified above. Firefox’s “Inspect Element” sez this is responsible:

    td.bbp-reply-content img {
        width: 550px;
    }

    Maybe switch that to max-width:

    #208694

    Jonathan Capps

    G&T Admin

    I know.

    It’s a quick hack to fix threads where people have posted giant images and I’ve been too lazy to get it to ignore smaller images.

    #208701

    Ridley

    So when a thread is updated but isn’t bumped to the top of the page, you also lose the edit button. That’s a thing this website does.

    Brayds2006

    Technically it’s not on the forum, but I think of this thread as a pseudo-maintenance report thread anyway.

    Thought it was a glitch, but I refreshed and it still showed up. Kryten to do 2214 things by the looks of it.

    EDIT: Wow, that image came in way bigger than I thought it would.

    #209014

    > EDIT: Wow, that image came in way bigger than I thought it would.

    Not your fault, see above. They need to change a width: to max-width: in the CSS.

    #209019

    Jonathan Capps

    G&T Admin

    This forum keeps orphaning replies from threads which is causing the Recent Replies bug, and it’s PISSING ME OFF.

    Thanks, Somebody – had it in my head that max-width wasn’t supported enough to bother with but it seems to be ok.

    #209020

    It did the same thing to me awhile back -both with the image and the gazillion messages.

    Been trying to start a new thread for about 10 mins but just boots me back to the forum index when I submit it.

    Not sure if this is an issue your end or mine (i’m using WiFi in Costa) tried with Chrome and IE, both do the same….

    #209209

    Jonathan Capps

    G&T Admin

    Sorry about that my darling, a recent update seems to have decided that it hates me and it keeps orphaning posts. Your thread should now be there…

    #209217

    Jonathan Capps

    G&T Admin

    Ok, please bear with me while the forum looks like a piece of shit. I had to start from scratch with the default theme because my old one just wasn’t playing nicely with a recent upgrade (hence the interminable problems). Normal service will be resumed shortly, but until then… DEAL WITH IT.

    #209221

    Jonathan Capps

    G&T Admin

    With any luck, the recent problems with replies and new threads not showing up properly should now be fixed. Will slowly get the theme back to its previous state, but for now it seems to be running ok.

    #209271

    Jonathan Capps

    G&T Admin

    Apparently the replies bug isn’t fixed. If anyone has problems replying to a thread, shout at us on Twitter or something, it’ll be the quickest way to let me know (@ganymedetitan).

    Odd glitch I have LITERALLY only noticed within the past five minutes:

    The forum topic list is http://www.ganymede.tv/forum/
    Various links, such as the breadcrumb Home › Forums go to http://www.ganymede.tv/forums/ which doesn’t list topics.

    That is all.
