New Forum Software FAQ (WIP) for Vanilla


#21

I would think this is what the “off topic” flag is for. It doesn’t have to be limited to the scope of the site, but I assume it’s applicable down to the thread level, even.


#22

Any idea if the Event Calendar will be coming back in any way, shape, or form? It sucks not being able to have events on the front page anymore :frowning:


#23

How do I access advanced formatting options? I can’t even see how to add bullet points without referencing ALT codes. Also how do we fix all the broken image notations like :qcf:?


#24

Excellent question. I’ll ask.

I’m pretty sure that’s high up on the list. Unfortunately I have no idea what the time frame is on that. I hate using these words, but it’ll really be done when it’s done. ^^;


#25

Yo, there’s a problem with the vanilla black code I’m using - threads are not being highlighted when a new post is made, I’m having to rely upon the small text next to them instead. Is it possible to change the highlight colour to something opposing grey, like blue?

Also the ‘edit’ and ‘account option’ button text is very unclear.

A pic of my problem:


#26

Better to discuss in Kyle’s thread for this.


#27

Did we lose access to our “Watched threads” ?<br>

Sadly, yes. The older method of tracking threads was not able to be converted to the newer style, called Bookmarks. If you click the star next to the opening post (or while you’re browsing the forum list) you can start tracking threads that way.<br><br>I’ll also add this to the FAQ, thanks.<br>

Bummer! Thanks for the reply and no problem. On a positive note, it seems much easier to get to your bookmarks now than it was before since it’s always on the top bar. Before, I specifically liked seeing all my watched threads (including ones without updates) and if I wasn’t on my home computer, it took me awhile to get to that specific page.<br>


#30

So, will we ever be able to see what’s on the front page from the forums, like on the previous layout?<br>


#31

I’m not the only one seeing the game specific forums being mashed together right? For example, when I look at the Street Fighter X Tekken Character Discussion, there’s characters from Mortal Kombat, MvC2, etc all mixed in there. It’s a mess.<br>

They might bring it back if they find a way to do it, although I’m not sure since a LOT of people complained about it when it was there. <br><blockquote class=“Quote”>

Nah, it’s like that for everyone. Wiz is still working on it but it’s being a total bitch as far as I know. 


#33

Got an update concerning the issue of subforms being in the wrong sections:<br><br>“We should be able to fix it on Thursday of the upcoming week. There are
some caching problems on this server, so they have to step in and
correct it.”<br>

Off topic doesn’t get the mods attention.


#35

Anyone know what the “Promote” reaction means yet? I see it everytime I go to my profile to check notifications and stuff, but I got no idea what it means. Kinda like the level star to the left under our usernames.


#36

Ok, a rather situation-specific question here -<br><br>May 3rd - Tapioca & Tea SSFIV AE’ UMVC3 Tournament in Elk Grove, CA - in the first post<br><br>I run tournaments and try to keep a running results list in the first post of every thread for that specific tournament. I’ve been running them for quite awhile now and have a bunch. With the new forum transition, there seems to be a new character limit per post; I have no gripe with that. However, I can no longer view all of the results in the spoiler tags in edit mode, and when I click “show source”, it shows it but with <div class> codes and other HTML. Am I out of luck? Will I not be able to get the post the way it was formatted in Xenforo?<br><br>It’s weird because in normal viewing mode, I can click every spoiler tag and see everything that was there before the transition. I just want to be able to have the simply formatted post so I can just break it up if need be to meet the character limit next time I start or edit a thread.<br>

You were flagged by the spam filter. I verified your account so it won’t happen again.<br>

Hopefully when everything else is ironed out, they’ll be able to customize it so that it can.

<button>This is going to be interesting</button>

Is html going to be removed?
