Looks like this comes under the “Can’t please everyone” category. Trying to emulate a “New content” button is too messy and using the forum is just not fun. 

I guess if you want to read every post then it works but i’m not interested.

I agree, who wants to scroll through every post. The view new content on the old software was WAY better.

 

Another annoyance is why it reverts to expanded view everytime I open the forum rather than remembering that I set it to condensed. Also way too much white space when viewing on a large monitor.

I'm pretty much getting the hang of this now. Just for thos who are still wondering, remember how you could just click beside someone's name to get the last post (or by mistake click on them and they accuse you of stalking them)? Now you just click on the solid circle or star  beside their name and it takes you to the last unread post.

 

What I can't get yet is getting to the top of the page without scrolling.

It's just about unlearning old habits of 8 years, and it's happening quickly!

Just looked at it mate, says my group doesn't have access!

 

Also is there a quick way to the top of the page?

 

Cheers

 

The back to top of the page arrow on the old version was a plugin/hook I installed.

Cheers

When you create your own view it will save your options for next time ie condensed or expanded view, which forums you are interested in etc, you can see your settings above the list of topics and  you can adjust them from there.

Is it the upgrade that has made the forum not work in MY Tapatalk app ? And if so what should I do to make it work again ?

The tapatalk plugin needs to be installed yet, I received an email from them and forwarded on to Lanzalad.

Well i've never had the login details for Tapatalk account and its linked to pattaya-live.com so i can't access the account so i don't have a Tapatalk API KEY which was issued to the account holder for pattaya-live.com

I also can't create a new one under the same domain name..

so unless i get access to the tapatalk account or we know the Tapatalk API KEY then i can't do anything...

Ip board don't really care for the tapatalk as its not supported too....

They have made a very good mobile version but until the forum is fully converted which takes from hours to weeks depending on your archives.

we will still have a few problems on resizing to fit all devices until its complete.

Sorry to bother you mate but I've just been trying to write a message to someone and when I click compose new my inbox keeps popping up and covering up what I'm trying to type.

On a mobile by the way.

Plus new content is no longer set at content I have not read?

And threads one has read appear only to be able to open at the beginning maybe clicking on the circle/star could take you to the end?

Again on mobile.

Yes i've changed to to a custom activity stream that is as close to the old "view content" as possible by only showing the last member who has posted in that thread.

here's a few things that will help you:-

Highlight Condensed and it will only show the thread title as pre update and to view the last post click on the timeline:-

The other activity stream is still there and now you go to Activity / All Activity

Starts to become pretty smooth, probably still a few things to fine tune, but the PC version is nice.

The mobile version on my Android is a bit more touchy for the moment.

Phil is there going to be an option to change the skin at any time.

Not as yet as any theme can only be set as a global theme meaning that only admin and set the main theme for the whole forum.

I am looking at options and one is a colour picker or a members colour scheme..

Signed into my Android on Tapatalk, can see the app, can see the topics but when I click on a topic it just hangs. Funny thing is that if I don't sign in and click on general topics available to everyone the text/post loads. Gremlins or just another bout of I don't know what I am doingitis!
