I see that a lot of people were (are?) using features I know nothing about. I used only one: "Last 24 Hours" or "New Today", which appeared to have been the same thing. It appears that if you are logged in, you can no longer see the "Last 24 hours", just "new posts", which is not the same thing. I would like to be able to see the posts from the last 24 hours, whether logged in or not.

Okay, I've been roaming-through the posts and through the features on the upgrade. First, thanks, Andy-whatever we all say for pros and cons, ultimately we need to thank you for providing this always informative and ever interesting forum for Airstreamers. (Hey, my DH and I can finally call ourselves that now!!) Like others, I miss those silly rivets and I really miss the "last 24 hours" feature-the one I always used. Wow, 53 FC--I followed your instructions and voila, indeed! The page sprang up to fill the whole screen. I jumped! One creepy feature--I went to Quick Links, down to Who's On Line and found everyone listed on line, including WHERE they currently were in the forum. I don't if I like that or not--it made me feel like crowds of people were peeking in my window. Then again, I guess I can join in on the window peeking and see what everyone else is reading! Anyway, we're all "Forum family" anyway! I am finding lots to explore and learn about in this new context.

Okay, again! I REALLY miss the "last 24 hours" feature! How are you all accessing the current list of posted messages? When I click on new posts, all I get are two or three since my own last post. PLEASE, Andy, restore the "last 24 hours" or someone please tell me what I need to do to locate such listing. Is it there or can we find it?

Thumbs up

I like the upgrade: it's cleaner and easier to navigate. Uploading multiple photos/attachments is really sweet.

Just discovered the archive feature at the bottom (was it there before?) for a quick reference to posts: A+.

Dislikes: I prefer viewing "most recent poster" rather that "post originator."
I miss the home page button on the top. Also I miss the photo button to members' galleries, and most of all, I miss the rivits - just earned my third rivit after months of hard work posting! What's an airstreamer to do without rivits?

Doug

The thread viewing feature only works for the particular thread. As soon as you go to "home", it's gone.

Question airstreamphotos.com

How does the upgrade effect airstreamphotos.com? Just tried unsuccessfully to log in there. I was hoping there might be some improvements in doc. management and maybe even larger allowable file uploads.

Thumbs up post originator

I've change my mind on this one since I've discovered that you can scroll over the title of the post to see the most recent poster. Nice.

Please list last poster, not thread originator

I'd still much rather see who made the most recent post to a thread than the person who long ago began the thread. I don't care who originated any thread: I do care to read answers from people who have something useful to contribute. I don't like having to finger the thread title to get this information; it should be obvious at a glance. If I see a post by a person who has something to say, I'll read that post even if the thread is one that usually is "off topic" for me personally. Other threads may look interesting from their title, but digging down to the the latest post can be a disappointment if you then discover it is from a hot air specialist. I'll reserve other comments until I do some more stumbing around the new web site format. Andy, thanks for maintinaing the Forum that brings me much joy and useful knowledge.

Fred,

There are two ways. See Cruiser's comment just above yours about holding mouse over the topic. Also if you click on "New Posts" in your User CP box you will get them that way too.

I will be working my hardest to get things as close as I can to "back the way they were". Thanks for being patient over the weekend and during this week while I "fine tune" all the features.

This was a major software upgrade and we're lucky to have it behind us. Karma, Rivet Titles and thumbnail photos will be back very soon. I'll be going through the old site to make it look and feel as close to "the way it was" as possible.

Off to work....

I will be working on the photo site right after the forums are tuned up. I'll get the album management working again. As far as file size, resizing them is a very processor intensive process, we can experiment with some, but I don't want to bog the server down each time a large file is processed. I'll look into monitoring processor usage during an upload and try to figure out the largest size possible.

I rather like the new software! Not only is it nice that you can simply click "new posts" to see what's up, but now you can simply put your mouse over the lead-in of threads and see the initial post via a mouseover. Nice touch!

I also would rather see the last one to post rather than the originater of a thread. Both would be a good addition.
Bob,
One operative way around this would be;
To view who has posted a reply last or, replied to the original thread you would need to select the "Display Modes" and, then drop select "Switch to Thread Mode" This sets up a "tree" sequence of replies to the original thread and, shows you the order of replies, who made the replies, etc.
Then, you simply scroll your mouse wheel down in that window to view and, chose to read the reply/replies of your choice. Try it~!

Of course, by the time some folks figure this out, Andy may well have it fixed to function like the old method..(present company included)lmao
ciao
53FC
btw, this is one setting that doesn't revert back to the original setting after you click/surf onto another thread.. Makes reading all comments contained within a single thread easier~!!
