Hi Marko, while I like the new look I can't get the emoticons to fully load. It's the same whether I use Mozilla or Explorer. any ideas? :confused:

I poked around a bit earlier. Hit the advanced button under your reply. It seems to save that preference, since I'm still in that view while I type this.

Some do, and some don't ... in time all should work as usual ...

I am having a harder time adjusting to the newest message being on the top, not the bottom ... :)

Hi members - the site was updated recently and there is a new look and feel. :cool: It's brand new to me as well so feel free to leave all comments or any issues in this thread.

Thx!

Marko

Greetings guys

Peace

Smilies should be active now, IF you hit reply. (The link that says reply right under the post)

IF YOU HIT Reply to Thread (the icon in BLUE) then you'll need to go to advanced to see the smilies...I believe

Hope that helps - Marko

Hmmm - I'm not seeing that. newest posts are at the bottom for me.

BUT THIS CAN BE EASILY CONTROLLED THOUGH YOUR uSER cp NOW LOCATED UNDER SETTINGS. UNDER Thread Display Mode:

HI Marko

here is what my screen looks like when I hit reply. If I click on the emoticons that is just the words then nothing shows up in the post. any advice on how to fix this would be great.

You're lucky you get that many showing Bambi :) I get none ... just the text code for them.

Going to take awhile to get used to the new look. Took me a few visits before I found the 'Todays Posts' link.

Suddenly being thrown out of familiar ground is always difficult at first, takes a while to adjust.

The new look actually feels older looking to my eye. Things like replies (number of) for each thread don't stand out like they did before. I imagine it's just an adjustment period needed before it all becomes 2nd nature again.

I'm also getting used to it, and we intend to customize it further, and yup Today's posts will return to a more prominent position.

Thanks!

Just an FYI - I realize there is still a problem w/smilies. Should be fixed soon.
Thx - Marko

Smilies seems to be working now :)


Is the Quick Reply coming back also? I find it difficult to comment on photos when I can't see them any longer because I've hit the reply to thread button. The quick reply allowed me to keep scrolling up and re-looking at the photo as I typed out my comment. Very handy for Critique.

I found the quick reply added an extra step when adding smilies - but i can add it back.

testing ... didn't work for me.

Hmmmm worked that time.

I find the quick reply essential for critiques otherwise I have to open a separate window/tab and keep flipping to it for reference. That's more pain than hitting advanced when I'm finished to add any smilies I might want.

the smilies are working for me! I do agree with MA's comments above about the reply buttons. But I know it's a work in progress and,
*cough*
it's not really all about me

*cough*

This one is more of a question, but I noticed while replying to a thread an auto save pop up. Not long after my PC locked and re-booted it self. Where do I find this "Auto-saved" version? The replies in my Diary thread sometimes take an hour or so to draft.

Is it possible we could edit older posts? Occasionally I investigate options with images and even if the image doesn't change Lightroom republishes the image to Flickr and it must change the URL. Now there are "Photo Unavailable" place holders when the photo is still available. If you click on them you get to the image page, but the only way to fix the thread is to edit the url in the post.

This is a minor one, but can the "Reply to Thread" button be hidden once the "Quick Reply" box is displayed? Sometimes I type up a big reply and then hit the "Reply to Thread" button instead of the "Post Quick Reply" button and lose the whole thing. OK I'm a bone head, but I have done it so many times...always when I spend many minutes crafting a response.

Just found the restore autosaved content button :clap:..it could be more obvious.
