Been noticing it randomly all over the forum. Thought I was hallucinating at first.

Sorry if it's been mentioned already. As a new feature, can we have every thread count as "1,2,3,14"? Just for shits and giggles.
I assumed that's so that we could get to the later pages of the thread more easily, as opposed to having to click by threes to get there. I like it.

I already brought that up earlier...

U2 Feedback - View Single Post - New Forum is Up! Still tweaking things though...


Oh and another thing...

Why is it that after we make a post, it redirects to the top of the page instead of right to that post?

my question is, what happened to that at the bottom of the page? Having it at the bottom of the page was very convenient because you could click on any of those forums or sub forums if you're done reading a thread and you're at the bottom of the page and it will take you back, instead of having to scroll all the way up again to return to another forum....I hope I am making sense

thanks again

Am I the only one who would rather have the forum-->subforum-->thread link at the bottom too, rather than the forum jump menu?

Actually, you're right, that could prove handy.

But in that case, I was on page 24, not page 13. And it only happens in one direction...ie, in this thread if I'm on page 1 I see " 1,2,3,4,5..."
but if I'm on page 24 I see "13, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24"

to which I say,

Were you on page 24 or 23? Because it seems that you get a list of the last few pages, then 10 pages back and then the first one. Probably for quickly jumping to a page in the thread.

Oh and just a small bug report.
The Recent Comments section in the Journals/Blogs isn't working. Or well, it's working kinda. But when you click on a comment you get to a random post/thread on the board.

Weird, if I go to page 1 of this thread, I see 1, 2, 3, 4, 11.

It's a miracle! They need to build a shrine to us to commemorate this glorious event!

I concede you may be onto something there...


However, I still stand by my "1,2,3,14" suggestion.




Also is the forum running slow for anybody else - I assume due to the continued tweaking and stuff - or is it just my stupid computer?

ETA:
Holy crap, I guess it's just my frickin computer.

I agree. The thread link is easier to navigate with than the forum jump.

Although.... with the forum jump, you can go directly from say, Out Of Control to Zoo Confessionals whereas you can't do that with the thread link. There is an extra U2 Feedback step in the way. :lazyasses:

Ok so here's the thing about adding extra features that dont come with this software (like the forum navigation links you are referring to above, or the local post times). Basically these are extra 'hacks' that need to be coded in the software, and when you have a lot of hacks, like we did on the old forum, it makes upgrading the board a nightmare. Which is why Joel never upgraded the board. So some of these things cannot easily be added if we want to make upgrading the board in the future painless. Sorry.
