NEW FORUM!

NEW FORUM!

Postby clublakers on Sun Sep 28, 2008 9:13 am

9/30 UPDATE:

By popular demand, the default template now has avatars on the LEFT side of the post. YOU can choose whether to view them on the LEFT or RIGHT by changing your personal template. Go to "User Control Panel" (top of the forums) > "Board Preferences" tab > "My board style" has a dropdown menu - choose cl-left or cl-right.

Next I will add a Quick Reply Button, and fix the auto-scroll to bottom problem for MODs.


----------------------------------------

We started migration about 8pm last night and it completed 15 hours later.

Search index is currently being constructed, so don't bother trying to use the search function until Monday.

We will chip away at small defects throughout the day, please post anything you find here so we can take care of them.

There are TONS of new features, so hunt around and try out everything.

- CL

I'd be interested to hear what sort of problems you ran into with the new software -- so we can repair them ahead of time.

No, the old forum software is far too server unfriendly and full of security holes.

But, we are open to recommendations to modify the new software.

CL a couple of features I would love to have are

quick reply
and a "jump to page ..." function

those 2 would be awesome...I dunno if they are available but if they are, I think it becomes more and more a necessity with the ever growing number of members here...

We already have the "go to page" function... if there are multiple pages, click on the "page 1 of 21" link to open the search form, and enter the page that you want to go to.

Quick reply we don't have, and is a good idea. I will add it.

Thanks!

Yeah as I told BDG, I'd like the avatar/name/post count to be on the left side rather than the right. I think it would look much better if it's possible.

All in all, pretty nice. :jam2:

awesome CL...well obviously it will take time to explore all the new features...but this template has sooo many more options, especially the mod control panel is so much better...now we have so many more features...we can also merge topics now FINALLY.

thanks for the hard work, its really appreciated and sooner or later, everyone will get used to it.

That can be swapped to the left with some effort. I imagine it was placed on the right in this build because user testing dictated that the mass-majority of users preferred it over there.

Let's see what everyone thinks after it settles in.

The only thing that is bothersome is the avatar on the right. Other than that, the layout looks good.

It just occurred to me that we could create two different templates, and let each user choose if he/she wants to see avatars on the left or right.

Lemme see what I can do...

I'm love'n it,

Other than the Avi being on the right. We read left to right, so it's annoying to have to look to the right side first then all the way to the left to start reading. It's small, but I think it gets to be a problem if you're looking at a lot of posts.

Loving it. The old version was SOOOO SLOOOOW to load I almost started hating coming on here but I just couldn't break up with CL. I've just been here too long and just when I was about to give up CL is new and improved and way faster.
