search function is not yet how it was. now you cannot search in one forum part but only in the full forum...

 

Hmm, for example if you only want to search in "News"

- go to the News forum

- click the search box

- The text "All content" shows up on the left of the search box. Click it and select the option "This forum only"

 

It works for me.

Glad the Avatars are now bigger. Things look much better now. However on mobile I don't see the Monochrome-heaven banner (or is this intentional?)

Also did the function to view all status updates vanish? You can only see the recent ones

There is no banner, when it was visible on mobile it would break the forums because the banner didnt resize (at least on my phone)

^lmao ok my mistake xD

 

edit: wait, no. actually my photo is 974 x1280! When I upload it, I had to crop it (ok) but it's still very bad in quality. Ok I guess I must upload it somewhere else and add the url.

 

after some experimenting i've noticed something with avatars: if you upload an image file that doesn't have a 1:1 ratio and larger than 178x178, it will be downscaled such that the longer side is 178px, and then the portion selected in the cropping tool (which will be smaller than 178x178) is stretched to fill the 178x178x area. Hence the "blurry" effect.

 

in other words, with high reso stuff that isn't a square, do the cropping/resizing yourself first before uploading :)

I had increased the size of large avatar to 178*178px on the client side via CSS, but there was more to that on the server side which limited the maximum height/width to 200-300px (it can cause an image blurry if either size is less than 178px after getting cropped).

Although I still don't entirely understand it, I've extended the maximum height/width to 400px when cropping. Let's see if that helps.

I just noticed that the profile panel looks a bit messed up:

The twitter handle isn't centered, and there's a space missing after Location. 

 

I'm using Chrome 50.0.2661.87m. 


EDIT: Also, the new widgets on the front page look so good!

Looks the same for me. (I'm also using Chrome)

How did you not notice it before o-o  It's been bothering me since DAY ONE

But I didn't think it was important so I didn't mention it.

2. We staff would like to preserve such editing privileges to only the staff members in order to prevent abuse in some manner.

it is possible to make the "edited <> by" line font a tad smaller and/or darker?

 

and is it possible to give users a period of  5-10 minutes after posting before the "edited" line pops up?

other boards have this feature, and it's v. convenient because a lot of message editing is basic grammar fixes and stuff, and the edited -- line looks really distracting right now.

Currently, gif files are not getting uploaded to the server for some reason; in other words, animated avatars are not working except for existing ones.

I'm not entirely sure what's the cause, but I'm assuming that it could be either the wrong server configuration or an IPS bug. We always keep the forum software up to date when newer versions are available though.
