This seems to be fixed now or is iPad specific.

 

I'm getting the same issue (WIN 10, Firefox)

Maybe the update is taking longer to get to those of us north of the border :D

Search index is currently updating, and caching will mean that some things take a while to filter through on your system.

 

The feed issue should be OK now, also the 'new content' can be viewed through the 'fluid' home page setting, if you choose it

A design/UI bug...

 

There is just too much whitespace & padding, so I am having to scroll much more on every page, which is very cumbersome.

 

eg. all of that space for 3 lines of text.

The font used to display the posts text is also too small.

It's almost like the content is an afterthought rather than the actual reason for people coming here.

 

Hopefully it's fixable...

 

(Browser is Firefox on Linux.)

Hi Ped amd the guys

 

Two things (apologies if they’re already mentioned);

 

1) If one clicks on a username one either gets taken to their profile page or, for some,  you get a “this content not found” message. I guess this could be the indexes refreshing but thought it worth mentioning.

 

2) I don’t know whether it’s the font (very “thin” and faint) or the sheer amount of white space but the site is painful to use on a mobile device. Is there any way of customising this per user or do I just have to learn to live with the headache?

 

cheers

Hi,

I added a post to a build diaries thread with a picture using the BBcode from Imgur but the picture doesn't show. All the previous pictures in the thread posted the same way still display.

 

Cheers


Do you mean you have tried since update? It seems BBcode has been depreciated in this version. Do you have externally hosted pics pre update, do they show correctly?

If BBcode has been depreciated, has it been replaced with something else? and if so where can get the "user manual"

You can still show external images, but you don't need to put the tags around it. As long as the link is direct (ends in .jpg) it'll work

 

For example 

https://i.ibb.co/dQVD6NF/IMG-5617.jpg

 

gives

 

IMG-5617.jpg

Hi Ped,

Someone posted on my thread that I had the embedding banners [img] on the BBcode which is why it didn't work. I removed these and the picture posted correctly. Not sure why the code picked up the [img] from Imgur - not sure if a setting has changed on my PC or if it was something to do with the update and just a coincidence it happened at the same time!! I'll let you know if I find anything out.

Cheers again for everything!

Thanks.

 

However using BBcode it used to be possible to combine an image with link to another web page - i.e. I could make a banner for my signature that was hosted on an image hosting website, which when clicked would take you to my band's website. Without BBcode I can't see how this is possible anymore.

That's why BB code is deprecated.

 

It allowed spammers etc. to hide URLs on images, so people would click an apparently innocent image expecting to see a larger version and instead find themselves following a hidden advertising link (or worse).

I suppose that's down to differing expectations.

 

I would never click an image expecting a larger version I would always expect that if it was clickable link that it was going to take me to a new page. I'd also use the ability to view the url of the link in the information bar at the bottom of the browser window before clicking anything.

 

To me this is a dumbing-down of the forums to protect the hard of thinking who aren't viewing them on a device capable of displaying all the information properly.

I'm not sure there was ever a huge demand for that...

Based on those two statements Basschat should probably dump the ability to have signatures completely. After all if you can't do anything creative with them and over half the audience can't even see them, then what is the point?

I wouldn't miss 'em. They're a bit early 2000's.

Agreed, re differing expectations - I would always expect a larger version.

I don't mind them but I hide all sigs that have a large image in them

Following on from the "Page numbers invisibilised" question, this appears to have been fixed within the individual topic pages/threads but I'm still seeing (or rather, not seeing) the page numbers in the topic listing pages (screenshot). (Win 10, Chrome).
