If I don't have the window really wide (almost the whole width of the screen) I have tons of space above the post. It just looks shite.

The post content and username details still sit side by side but I have a large space above the post content like this

Spoiler: show

unless I drag the window really wide.

Have you edited the code at all as it looks like the "location" for you is coming across further than the width of the "left section" (see the wind bit on your screen shot)

If you've made the left hand side any less than the 12% or so it is set at, that will be why. Alternatively, go into the code, go to lines 84 and 88, and change the .postprofile (line 84) width to 13% and the .postbody (line 88) width to 86% and see if that helps. Its the only thing i can see in your screenshot that might be causing it


Changing those %s sorted it :toppa:

On the football forum view, where all the topics are listed out, the unread posts icon (the orange thing) on the left used to have a black dot IF you've contributed to that thread. I don't believe that's there anymore. Any way to get it back?

I could do it, but the icon would disappear if you have read that topic. So it would be a bell with a dot on it if there are unread that you've contributed to. But if you have read the thread, then there would be no icon whatsoever...

Its a difficult one really, not quite sure what to do.

I like having the bells back though :thumbup:

edit: on your second point, I cant control that unfortunately :thumbdown:

thanks anyway, you've done far more already :toppa:

The new forum is f*cking atrocious.

I only use it at work and we cannot download anything, we also use internet explorer ( :picard: ). So I cannot use the method in this thread (I don’t think anyway). So this is horrible news, I would spend at least 2 hours of my work day on the forum.

I dont have time to go on it at home, either on my phone (I like to tab at least 10 threads at a time and work my way through them, cant do this on phone) or a laptop/pc etc.

It was simply a beautiful way of getting my work day in. So this new layout and my inability to change it has left me in despair :(

WHY DID THEY DO THIS :-((

I know you can't download anything, but can you "install" stuff, from say a USB stick?

Exactly that. Download Chrome, the extensions (if possible) and then install it...not sure how doable this is, but worth a shot

Firstly, :adore: for the scripts, that's some top, top forumming.

When I click on "View Your Posts" about half the time it only shows one thread, but other times it shows the whole list. Is that just me? Is there a reason that can be fixed??

Yeah what happened to the thread titles in each post?
I thought that was sorted with a smaller font. I'd prefer that back.

I have been out for a bit so I haven't followed every development and update in here tbf.

Where do I look for the Chrome fix?

Ok got it, but the View Your Posts tab only shows me one thread, guessing this isn't working as intended? Any help appreciated :toppa:

i assume the recent changes are because of Trigger and not the forum tech team. Whoever it is thanks a million they're fantastic.

Font is a perfect size, maybe i think that because its similar to how it was before.
names are gone from post headers, dunno why it was like that to begin with, moronic
the scrolly thing on the side of threads is gone thank fuck, waste of space and an eye sore.

All i want now is my "view my posts" to work all the time. Its hit and miss, when it works its great but when it doesn't i only have one thread and almost never have 7 pages like before.
I'd also like a link on the "view my post" page to go straight back to the forum

the only thing i like on the new design is the quick links, once its working properly i think my forum experience will be a little better than before.

Anyway thanks trigger for the improvements :toppa:

You can bring the "View my posts" back by changing the dropdown box from "All posts" to "1 year"....it doesn't actually show you 1 year's worth but it does bring the list back into view.

This doesnt work for me :(

I used to only get 16 threads. Now with that tip ^ I get a page full, but never several pages, and never just one thread. Also, for 2-4 threads on each page of "view my posts" the name is invisible.

Ive had to do it that way using portable chrome. You - if like my work do not allow USB devices and downloading of EXE files either will need to maybe also zip the files up and put them in say an email account. This way you'll be able to access them.

I had done that before but I hit update on the userstyles home page yesterday and it reverted back to a non-thread title version.
