Pretty much same as it used to, with the bookmarks button back and the non-awful colour scheme etc. Sure it won't please everyone but hey ho.


Yes. Without a doubt.

How does one bookmark threads now?

Furthermore, how does one receive notifications of threads one selects?

What did you do to get them back?


calmdown wrote: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.


For those of you wanting the thread titles back in the post as above ^^^, here is what you need to do...

Code: Select all

That will make it come back, to make it look a lot better, replace the above with this instead

Code: Select all

    .postbody h3 {
        font-size: 1.1em;
        margin-bottom: 4px;
    }

:adore:

Can I nominate Trigger for a forum Knighthood? Well deserved imo :badger:

I still only get two threads when I click on 'View Your Posts'

Anyone sorted this? It is rather annoying.

Depending on your browser, you need to install either Greasemonkey (firefox or Tampermonkey (chrome) and then go to these links:

https://greasyfork.org/en/scripts/11491 ... ifications - Gets the "view your posts" and "bokmarks" buttons back.
https://greasyfork.org/en/scripts/11510 ... new-window - Makes sure that links open in a new window

Once youve gone to the links, click on "Install this script" and let it do its thing :thumbup:

Just quickly created another script to temporarily try to fix the refresh issues people are having. It adds an extra parameter to each link so you might see a lot more forum entries in your history if that bothers you. Also rather than refreshing the index or threads to see new posts you'll need to click the links such as "Football Forum" at the top of each page.

There could be other issues with it as I haven't fully tested it out but let me know.

F365 Temporary Refresh Fix

Edit 2: Jump to latest post should be working now if you update

:toppa: Sterling effort. Any way to get it to work when pressing the home button in my browser? It's set to the football forum page, so if I press that at the moment, it takes me to an outdated list of threads from 10 minutes ago. Click the link at the top of the page as you explained instead and it sorts it. Press my home button again and I go back in time once more :lol:

Don't think there's a way unfortunately, the forum seems to refresh when there's something unique in the URL so the one you have saved as your homepage is going to be the same URL every time.

Edit to say you'll also see outdated versions if you click a bookmark, use the back button/refresh. Only clicking links to navigate around will refresh topics/posts

Update

If anyone wants a look similar to the Awooga forum (flat, modern, bit more spacious) then I have put together this:
https://userstyles.org/styles/118868/tr ... -flat-look

Just go there ^^ and install it with Stylish if you have that installed (as per the OP)

You should disable the old restyler (click on stylish icon and click on 365 Restyler #new to disable). If you like the new style, uninstall the old one to save some loading time.

If there are new posts (as in you havent read them) the title will be bold. If you've read them, the title will be normal weight.

Its the same for all of the other threads in the main list :thumbup:
