Done! Now 30 seconds.

Here's the problem. There's a warning by the range setting that says:

Warning: Large ranges can lock forums until the search is complete.

I knocked it up to three years from two. Let's see what that does.

Another readability issue here, can the spacing between the lines/sentences in a post be slightly increased?

The bottleneck throttles bandwidth to 3kB/sec. Try a bottle that isn't tinted any color.

To reduce the vertical space consumed by short postings, I find that it is better to turn avatars ON because most avatars are smaller than the default. Feel free to use my 1x1 pixel avatar.

They originally offered stereo, but the sound guy still ran the main mix in mono anyway...

Not a bug, but are there any plans to switch to a different theme? This one is very... white. It's a bit rough on the eyes. And there is no horizontal seperation between the threads on the thread list page anymore.

Scroll to the very bottom of any page to the Style Chooser. Yours probably reads "ubbcentral." Switching it to "ubbthreads" might help. Save that in Preferences if you like.

LOL... I just tried that. It turned all the light blue borders to an off yellow.... with still the huge white space. Unfortunately this current "theme" is really hurting my eyes.

Actually, once we get a bit more settled in, Jim wants to try playing with a few different themes.

Having the same issues as the others. When selecting a thread to read, Im taken to the top of the most recent page instead of the first unread posting. This wasnt the case prior to the upgrade. Is there a setting that will fix this?

A couple more things...

The favicon is currently the default ubb one. Would be nice to get the old one back (little black/blue speaker from the Music Player Network Logo)

The left hand column width in threads is also bugging me. Looks like it dynamically adjusts based on the size of the avatar. It would be nice if this dimension were fixed so everything is uniform.

Believe it or not, Future Music wanted to keep the logo even though we got the brand.

In fixing the read/unread posts issue, would it also be possible to keep a more permanent record of unread threads as opposed to marking them all as read after one session?

Man, I've been hoping for that since day -999. Every other forum does that, so that when the upgrade here moved in the opposite direction, it was quite a shock (I'm sure this will get fixed. No way that wiping out unread counts is supposed to happen).

I think we should have our own logo and favicon. thu

Truly exciting, but also utterly dependent on the recipient having a device that contains the emoji set you’re using. The “mind blown” emoji someone responded with, for example, wasn’t added to the standard until 2017 so anyone with an older OS definitely won’t see it. It becomes something of a minefield and fragmented experience ... but a fun one, for all that! 🥳

I saw in another thread that Jim switched the character set to be more compatible with the old quotes and characters. Unfortunately, it looks like we lost the emoji with that change. Oh well. It was fun while it lasted.

Seems that I can't open the "quote" page in a new tab? I used that all the time for when I wanted to quote multiple people; open all the needed ones, then copy-paste each of them into my reply.




Not sure if this is something that really counts as a bug, but is there a way to not make the location on our profile link to Google Maps? Not exactly my preferred situation.


I'll let you know if I come upon anything that no one else has mentioned yet. Thanks for your work!!


Edit: thought of something else: is there any way to make it so that when we log in, that we are automatically returned to the thread we were viewing before logging in? Not a biggie, but some forums I'm on do that. It's just handy.

I prefer dark themes for forums, code editors and the like so I've been fiddling around with a dark style for the forum using a CSS script. I used the dark Talkbass style as an example. The style gets installed with a browser extension called Stylus. The example below is in Firefox.

I am an amateur with CSS. Much of the forum content is hard-coded into HTML table cells without CSS selectors, things like images and such. Without selectors their modification with straight CSS is fiddly.

There is a great deal more that could be done to it but I much prefer it as-is to the stock appearance.

Im pretty sure the default styles for UBB have something similar. Ive seen it in their support forums. Id love to see those options built in here.

Fully concur. This layout makes it unreadable for me. frown Once in the topic all is well. it's topic screen that is VERY hard on the eyes.

Ah! I knew it seemed awkward to navigate, but hadn't put my finger on why... that's it! It's not a problem inherent to this version of the bbs software... pianoworld uses the same software and they have the gridlines. OTOH, they solve the ugly no-left-margin problem by filling it with ads. ;-) It's okay, they don't bother me. Actually, I prefer a "Thread Title" column that isn't so wide. It just makes it harder to associate the info on the left with the info on the right, with all that unnecessary blank space in the middle. (One other thing I like about pianoworld's implementation... the 4-year search windows. It means I don't have to do as many incremental searches on the same terms to cover the desired amount of time.)

As for other requests... Dark mode, ugh! Do people really find it easier to read small white text on a black background?? But to each his own... And emojis? Man, I am so old... but apparently not old enough to appreciate a return to hieroglyphics.


Maybe this is the best place for a shameless plug! Our new video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3ZRC3b4p4EI is a 40 minute adaptation of T. S. Eliot's "Prufrock" - check it out!

Not sure if this is a bug, but the new forum no longer has the my stuff button when youre logged in? I use my posts to quickly find threads, but I dont see that in the drop-down menu under my login name.

Can we maybe make a list with all addressed bugs and keep that up to date in you OP dB? Not sure if that's too much work, but would be nice to have an overview.

I did see an Emoticon in Joe's post, but now it's just random characters. I get some weird characters a lot, but I think that is already addressed.
