Hmm, perhaps a bit now that you mention it.  Icons are different above too.

It's the usual "... it ain't broke, so we'll FIX it " or a new geek came on board at the Runboard site and they are "proving they can do something to "improve" things Twisted Evil Twisted Evil

May be a PHPBB code update. You gotta keep on them or the hackers will get you. They target boards like this a lot. It's the standard PHPBB layout with colors changed.

I do wish they'd break up the logo at the top. Maybe float the BoB part left and the "Community of Pipe Smokers" on the right and ditch the big pipe photo. When I check the site from work I have to scurry to scroll past the logo. Judgmental eyes are always looking over shoulders in cubicles... "you know, tobacco is a dirty habit"

It's difficult to hide the giant pipe among a dozen other windows. It stands out. Smile

"If it ain't broke, better fiddle with it some more." Suspect

Yes, at some point the system was updated this afternoon. They seem to make improvements from time to time without giving us a heads up. There's only been one report of someone having trouble so far. Something weird with the editing quotes. 

Let a mod or admin know if you're having any troubles with the updated format.

Brew, are you a member on any other forums? Might be worth a try to see if you have the same issues editing posts there. If you do, it's probably your computer. If not, you'll know there's something incompatible with the new updates. 

Give it a shot.

Quote and cursor work ok on IPad. Starting to type robotically, however.

A quick note for anyone who used this feature previously, I noticed earlier that if you type something up and go back to read something or go forward to search something in the same window/tab that if you come back to the post a reply page your text wasn't saved.

Could be going crazy but I swear if you went forward or back previously that any text you had put in on the post a reply page was still there.

Dunno if this holds true for other browsers/operating systems, I use Google Chrome. Figured I'd just mention it and maybe save someone from losing a typed out reply.

I like the new editor, although it could be altered through css to better suit the layout mind.

Changing the background colour of div.sceditor-group to #F1EBDB looks much better, anyone on FF can try it out using firebug. bounce

I have wondered why BoB doesn't have its own server account.  I have one and pay a whopping $3.95/mo.  You can install forum software via a script and if this free site allows backup, you could import all the current postings, setup, etc.  Then, the admins here would have total control of updates, design, etc.

http://www.upperhost.com/   provides a review of the better hosting sites.

No

Posting stuff now is like writing a message on the back of a postage stamp. Claustrophobic.

It stinks and I hate it.

What a Face

It's a little cluttered, the text box footprint is a bit small.

I was okay with the way it was, but what am I gonna do if it stays like this, rage quit? 

Laughing

Out of curiosity, why the change?

Kyle, there are a couple of things I do miss having here.

  • Threaded posts
  • Mark all Read


I think the quote setup is a bit over the top.

Including various graphics is an ongoing challenge for many.

But, the real allure here is community and not the software.  So, I can live with it and avoid rage.

Just happens from time to time, like raising prices. They never announce it beforehand. You just discover it after the fact,

scratch  I'm still getting threaded posts, and I can mark read the sections or whole forum I like I did before... if those went away, I'd protest.   Laughing

But yeah, I'm not into the new text box, toolbars, etc.   Since I type out my :smilies: anyway, having memorized the ones I like, 5), I don't need the menu off to the left.   I suppose I could have fun with the right-justify feature, indexing, or even the World of Warcraft button (whatever that does...).

What the hell, Huggie?   Stop it!  Laughing

Quote feature still does not work. I can quote someone and that shows up on a yellow highlight. But cannot type anything under it.

I'm a member at another forum with similar software and the reply box hasn't changed there.

Still no cursor.  Cannot delete after highlighting. And my browser spell check will not highligh misspelled words.

I'd be grateful if an admin could put this back the way it was.


Not amused.

 I just tried the quote feature, seems to work, I'll know after hitting the "Send" button.

Ok gentlemen, we've gotten a little info from our Admins. There were some updates made on June 12 and apparently aspects of the reply function were disabled. These changes are only being tested at this point and will be modified pending user feedback.

The Guys Who Change This Stuff (without telling us) wrote:
1. With the integration of the new editor, two options become obsolete in your admin panel and therefore were deleted:

-Enable extended message editor
-Enable WYSIWYG by default in messages

2. This new editor is still in beta. Therefore, there may still be some bugs. These will be corrected by gathering feedback from the community. (It should be noted that the change will not be in your admin panel.)
I'm not entirely sure how long this beta process will take but nothing's permanent yet.

We'll let you guys know more as we find out more.

Continues to be a problem here.

Many features normally expected are not employed.

WTF???
