If you click the little round dot in front of the thread it will take you to the first unread post, but I guess that's not what you're asking for.
I just went to the site; at the bottom left it shows a bunch of urls flashing, "waiting for then the URL. The last of them is Facebook. Curious as to why. BTW, I'm not on Facebook. Probably for common logon?
Also noticed that the start date for each thread is blank?
I haven't been able to replicate this consistently, but sometimes when I click the Home link I get logged out. Has anyone else seen this?
I tested this on mobile and it works there as well. The icon is pretty small though, if you have fat fingers you'll never get it to work.
Mobile: Once you've read to the bottom of a thread it would be nice if there was a no more than 2 click way to get to the unread thread list.
Nothing really bad with the demo site. Small annoyances :
I don't like the pastel orange color of some elements.
I don't see where to chose another color scheme.
My avatar didn't follow like the one of some others.
I've seen "points" and "likes" in the members section. Do we really need these?
This is mostly nitpicking and none of the above are show stopper.
I prefer the embedded video.
I'm very satisfied with the current BBS software, its up-time and performance. Thanks again for your work on the site and it's upkeep.
I don't view site via a mobile device so I don't require a change. But if any change(s) helps you more easily administer the site go for it.
Really do not like the text font on the site. With my 43" 4k monitor I enlarge the text quite a bit so it's easier to read but the new font is "harder" to read/see even enlarged. Can I change that on my end?
Agree with Coug. Don't care for the orange and don't see where to change it. Don't care either way for avatars. Don't care about "points" or "likes" either.
Either way is fine. You can click the "go to site" button on an embedded video if you want the URL.
Thanks for the feedback. Have you tried either of the other two themes installed on the new forum? You can change by clicking in the lower left corner where it says "default style". Let me know if either of those styles helps with the font. They use the fontawesome pack.
I'm also working on getting a new logo to modernize it a bit more.
OK see where to change the style now. I like the "Flat Awesome" fonts. Of course the logo and "bars" need to be changed to the StorageForum blue instead of red.
Yeah I have a bit of work to do with adjusting the styling and colors. It's on my list. Tonight I'm tuning the database parameters to make sure we don't use beyond the amount of RAM on the system.
Where on the forum are you seeing this?!? Does this happen if you use a private browser window or incognito mode?
The main page: https://www.qikl.us/index.php upper right corner.
Win7 Pro, Firefox 48, regular session, not private or incognito mode. Some more missing "buttons."

EDIT: Default style working OK, must be missing or mis-configured elements in the different styles.
EDIT2: I actually like the Default style better (it seems more polished) than the Flat Awesome just don't like the default font.
You're right, Handy, there is a date next to the OP's handle under the thread title for every thread. I just didn't pay attention to it; my bad. I saw the Start Date column header and assumed the dates should be there in a column. This isn't a biggie; no need to sweat this one now that we know where it is. Thanks!mubs, I'm curious if it's just a crappy formatting issue? If I really make my browser window smaller there is a date under the thread title. This is totally a layout issue but I'm thinking this is why it doesn't look right when the browser window is very wide.
Can you give me a little more info? Is this the same as scrolling to the top and clicking "new posts"? I guess what I'm asking is if "new posts" was also at the bottom of the thread does that address your concern?
Clicking the date under the author of the last post takes me to the last post.I'm still not finding any quick way to get to the last post in a thread, i.e., Last Message just lists the poster name.
To get to the last post, I am clicking on the thread, selecting the last page number, and then scrolling all the way to the bottom.
Is that just the way it is? I see there is a "latest" in the higher level page for the whole forum, which is good.
