Default Post-upgrade suggestions

Sorta missed the part where DMo said to post suggestions in here...
  • Quick reply box missing - fixed
  • Forum jump doesn't have the forums in it... - fixed
  • Avatars...? - fixed
  • What about having the user info to the left of the post again, instead of on top? (by Apokalipse) - fixed
  • Also, most of the links in the 'Quick Links' drop-down menu at the top don't work for me. Same is true for the 'Advanced Search' option under the Search menu. (by Greg)

  • Search function doesn't work (by Havoc) - fixed?
  • New skins (by Mr.Switch)
  • Signatures are limited to 500 characters (excludes BB tags but not HTML). Could this possibly be increased (or exclude HTML from the limit)? (by Kubel)
  • Also, there are some strip-slash problems (particularly with signatures) that causes broken HTML. (by Kubel)
  • HTML anchors are prefixed with the techist.com domain. (by Kubel)

Seems like Forum jump has some forums in it now, but not the sub-forums.

Keep those suggestions, bug reports, errors, coming. You can add them to this thread or start a new thread.

Maybe Trotter will add whatever is mentioned here in his initial post so it's in a nice, neat place for me to check. Hint! Hint!

Thanks.

Dave

Not a big fan of the smilies, but that's not a huge issue

Also, most of the links in the 'Quick Links' drop-down menu at the top don't work for me. Same is true for the 'Advanced Search' option under the Search menu.

EDIT: I have the same problem with the 'Thread Tools' and 'Display Modes' menus at the top of threads

This is probably an already known issue, but the search function doesn't work, period.

Well we might as well use something different as far as skins go since tech forums was upgraded!

I REALLY like the site havoc was using, but I think there are better skins.


I think Takeout would look great in blue:

ForumThemes.com - Powered by vBulletin



And Caprice would look ok if the colors were a bit deeper. I like how this one has a newest threads column. Another forum i visit has it, and it's amazing.

ForumThemes.com - Powered by vBulletin <<< I like this one the most.

Signatures are limited to 500 characters (excludes BB tags but not HTML). Could this possibly be increased (or exclude HTML from the limit)?

Also, there are some strip-slash problems (particularly with signatures) that causes broken HTML.

And HTML anchors are prefixed with the techist.com domain.
