How did you do that?


There's a property under the "Posting" setting to "Expand Acronyms".

So I can define a list of Acronyms, and they will automatically get tagged like this as the post is created. It doesn't seem to work retroactively, so HTFU in older posts will not show the mouse over help.

It's on the Admin stuff - you can't get to it.

I'm not able to create a new topic in Fix It Anarchy.  When I tried to create one, I was shown a screen with the title and the tags.  I entered the title and a tag, but when I submitted it, I got an error screen that said I hadn't filled in something.  There is nothing I can click on to fill in, however.  Same in both FF and Chrome.

Something is screwed hard on this one, trying to track it down.

Cool, thanks!

The new software seems faster, which I like.

I dislike 4 things about the editor:

  1. Nested quotes gone. They could be overdone, but they were often v useful
  2. Post numbering was really useful.  Please bring it back!
  3. Raw editing is v helpful. I don't mind whether it is BB code or HTML, but please give us the option to use it

Hey, boss.

There will be a learning curve on the user side, no problem there.

On the user name thing, though,  it seems needless to hold us to a once-in-30-day name change just for the present, given that many of our names were just changed on our behalf without permission by the software.  I don't hold the board owners or the moderatoors responsible, please understand that;  just the same, given that "I" didn't make a name change three days ago, I'd like to suggest that this time limit be adjusted to, say, one name change per day for a limited period.  Make this condition last for a few days only, so we can put up the names by which we are known.  

Is this possible?

WIth appreciation,

"atoyot"

That should be fairly reasonable to do for a short while.

With the "No new topics" thing kicking my ass short term, it's not #1 on the list...

New Topics thing is fixed for now, though you all will have to live without ads for a while. Try to tough it out while we fix those.

Apologies if this issue has already been raised.

For a short period, the forum was displaying my user name instead of my display name.  I did not alter my Display Name in the profile (had not touched profile in years).  I did go into the profile to change it back to WoobaGooba, but the sw would not allow that as it said I had changed the Display Name within the last 30 days (which I had not).

This may have been related to login using the user name but same password.  I am not sure.  The issue seems to have self corrected.

Weird.

With the update, I now get a popup notification on EVERY view, that says the site wants to send me notifications (Windows 10 Pro, yeah, yeah, but we are stuck with it at work).  I don't really need to know what is going on when I am not on the site.  I don't have notifications enabled on Windows and don't really want to just for this site. 

In the SA profile settings, I turned off all notifications except that "Profile, Someone posts on my profile," the ability to toggle on/off is disabled by the administrator.  I don't know the purpose of this, but can this be changed so it can be turned off as well?

haven't read through the thread BJ, but I definitely think the lack of color differentiation between quote blocks and the rest of the page makes things far less readable.

Has anyone done a porn test yet? What about Bents Ignore quote blocker? Did it survive the apocalypse?

I think we should be able to put our own avatars on other people's profiles that only we can see. My version would look like a gynaecologist's pin board.
