Default New software...

Please list bugs here... Some of them are pretty obvious... Also, if you discover a new feature that you like say something about it here so others can learn...

Bugs known so far:

Old quote tags are broken...
Some old text formatting comes out super big...
Links to threads in old forum are broken...
The default color scheme is a bit weird...
The smilies are really broken...

Finally, if you should happen to discover a security bug please let me know without posting about it...

When I read all the new posts in the forum and then "reload" the page, the "new post" icons in the main page keep turned on

Default Last Day Threshold not working

I noticed this in the PMs, but it probably applies elsewhere also.

The default setting for displaying entries gives an empty list even though I have been sent messages within the past hour. Raising the threshold to 2 days makes them visible.

Not a bug, but an annoying change: The "Go to <select forum>" pull-down menu and button at the bottom of each thread has changed to a "Rate this thread" option instead. I much preferred the old way.

The forum is much quicker, the latency is much lower.

There's something wrong with the time. At the bottom of the page it says:
All times are GMT. The time now is 5:56pm.
but the time is 4:56 pm GMT. Has somebody forgotten about summer/daylight-saving time?

Some of the stuff you all mentioned is fixable...

I plan to fix the forum colors and smilies this week...

I could have done it all at one time, but I wanted to minimise the forum down time...

As for the forum jump pull down menu, that is an option I have turned off at this time, but if enough people want it I will turn it back on... The reason it is turned off is because it adds a lot of queries to each page...

The time thing confuses me too... I'll try to figure it out...

BTW, posts are limited to 10,000 characters and private messages are limited to 2500 characters... You can edit posts up to 5 minutes after you submit them...

I was very happy with the old forum but the way it dealt with editing posts was unacceptable...

Maybe add BBCode for subscripts and superscripts?

Just an idea.

Ah, the left most column is blank if I've posted in the thread.

Getting used to this new software.

It provides some useful additions, display threads with new posts saves time, don't have to keep drilling down into the various forums.

The cookies option for staying logged in, yes.
Just need to remember to logout.

A five minute windows to edit a reply, yes.
