Some site updates
« on: February 19, 2018, 01:56:29 pm »
Hi everyone,
I hope winter's treating you well. I've just made some improvements to the forum:

- New optional theme. There's a new theme called ModernStyle (I know, great name).
You can try it out by going to Profile in the top menu, then Modify Profile -> Look and Layout. Then, click "change" next to current theme (Meridian is currently the currenttheme). Then, click "use this theme" under the ModernStyle theme.
I'd like if everyone gave it a try. We could possibly make it the new default theme for the entire forum if most people like it.

- New mobile site. The mobile version of the forum now uses the ModernStyle responsive theme so the site is no longer as bad on mobile devices.
- I removed some modifications that nobody was using. Namely forum calendar and bookmarks.

Enjoy!

Ben

Hi Ben,

Thank you for always looking after us on the web!

Quick question - on an iPhone, how do I get to see the recent unread posts from the forum homepage, now?

Thanks
S

Hi Ben, 

I tried the ModernStyle, but I think I prefer the existing Meridian theme on my desktop PC.

Thanks for giving us the option.

Although I like the new look, I like the old "show unread posts since last visit", I know there is a paragraph showing latest posts in the new theme, but it seems harder to see posts I haven't read, the old way seems easier. Not sure if it is just something to get used to?!?
Thanks for the options.

Hi Ben

Not sure if it’s related to the change or not but I think the new mobile forum is not showing pics. I think there may be some photos in the trading post item on a recent post that I’m not seeing.

Also, not sure the @bfeist name mention thing is working either.

Sorry!

You are really becoming Canadian, eh?

I can see the photos under the mobile new theme.  I think you are referring to Jim's post.  Even in default (classic) theme, I didn't see any photos either. 

@bfeist, for the Modern theme, is it possible to add back the 'show unread posts since last visit' button?

Thank you

I’ll see what I can do. I’m on my way to Calgary on business, it’ll have to wait until I’m back.

Sorry @bfeist - previously there were no photos posted in Jims post. It was a misunderstood message. So nothing to investigate there.

The name mention using “@name” no longer brings up the suggested recipients but does seem to work. Sorry again (....more Canadian again, Bruce!) The old one used to bring up the name of potential targets once 3 letters had been typed. No biggie.

Cheers
S

Hi Ben @bfeist,

Just wondering if you’ve had any luck trying to add the “recent unread topics” link to the forum homepage on the mobile site again?

How is everyone getting on with the new format?

Thanks
Simon

Just took a shot at adding it to the home page. The layout isn't pretty in mobile but it works!
