Quote from: Alps on March 30, 2024, 10:38:08 PMOld feature to bring back: marking a message as "New" or "Unread" after you click on the topic. It's nice that it brings you to the first unread message, but nothing marks read vs. unread messages after that as you scroll.

There's a 'Mark Unread' button at the bottom beside the 'Print' button.

Quote from: JoePCool14 on March 29, 2024, 02:04:10 PMGood to know we can at least still hover to see individual title posts. It would be nice to see it brought back like it used to be though, if it's still an option in SMF.

Found the option and turned it back on. ;)

Where did signature pictures go? My profile picture (Imagine..) shows but my signature image (Tardar Sauce a/k/a Grumpy Cat) does not.


Government would be tolerable if not for politicians and bureaucrats.

It looks like it was hosted on a page on the AARoads website but got discontinued/archived. Said image likely exists elsewhere.

Because your signature image was in the 'old' gallery.  That info wasn't ported over when repairing the database.

The 'NEW' image is now back. :)  Took several trials and errors on my offline forum finding the best placement spot for it (and the proper code to get it to work right), but it's now working. :)

Whenever I post something in a thread, I've noticed that it automatically adds it to my watchlist. It remains on the list unless I manually go in and remove it.

However, if I remove the thread from my watchlist once (like this one), it doesn't return to the list.

I saw it today and went back to this thread to Like whoever fixed it (:

To prevent threads from automatically being added to your 'watchlist', do the following:

Profile -> Notifications -> unclick the button for "Follow topics I create and reply to" -> Click the 'Save Settings' button at the bottom of that page.

Love having the "NEW" label back, thank you rickmastfan67.

I've noticed that profile picture limits have changed, my fingerpost profile picture (which I've used for like 10+ years now) is much smaller than it used to be. The horizontal limit is the same as before, 150px, but the display size is about half that (or less).

Should be fixed now.  Another setting that somehow partially got reset and needed to be kicked to work again correctly. lol.

+1 for the new "alerts" feature. It's really handy to know when your posts have been quoted, and fun to see when you've been "liked". And +1 for the like feature itself? To my knowledge it's been serving its intended purpose without being abused or creating drama, so I'd call that a success.

Quote from: rickmastfan67 on March 26, 2024, 12:44:11 PMThere are a few new features in the 2.1 branch of SMF that I've turned on for us.  Please don't abuse them, or I might have to turn them back off.

==

LIKES - You can now like individual posts if you want to.  This will allow people to show their support for something, and not have to make an 'I agree' type of post if they don't want to.

@ Mentions - You are now able to directly mention another user in a post and they'll get a notification about it.  Please don't abuse this.
@rickmastfan67 is reactions feasible via SMF?

Don't think so.

It is with an addon, though I've never used this so I don't know how well it works. https://custom.simplemachines.org/index.php?mod=4264

It will be possible by default in SMF 3.0 though (currently in the early stages of development).

Given that the same user that asked about post reactions also started a thread about them, which received a near-universal negative reception from the community*, we are not planning to take steps to implement them. Maybe we'll revisit the idea when SMF 3 comes out, in the event that community opinion has changed by then (although I wouldn't hold your breath).

*I'm not sure why he decided to ask in this thread when the other thread indicated that people don't like the idea. Forum shopping perhaps?
