ONGOING: Current Site Upgrade Requests

Recommended Posts

Can we restore the "New recruits/Getting Started" section?  It looks (from my point at least) as if the entire area has disappeared.  I realize that this change was a lot of work, and that bugs will continue to require fixing, but if a first time visitor was to view the site, they would be somewhat lost.

It's still there, it's just at the top of the forums.  Nothing was deleted at all.  What happened is that "Recruits" was essentially renamed to "Welcome to the 1st Imperial Stormtrooper Detachment" and moved to the top of the boards.  All the content is still there, though I created a subforum per AC's request called "501st and Detachment Access Requests", and put a few topics in there.

 

What were you expecting to see that you can't find?  I can help :)

I just want to say great effort to everyone involved in the upgrade!  I know what a PITA this sort of thing can be, and the forums look awesome now!

 

One request, if possible?  When posting a reply on the previous version of IPB I was able to toggle between a WYSIWYG and a BBCode view.  Is enabling BBCode view a part of the new version of IPB? (Or was I silly and just missed it...?)

 

Again, awesome job!

I was trying to add that back, but the new editor doesn't have native bbcode, and it broke quotes when I added it.

 It might come, but it might take a while.

No. It's ready when it's ready.

Any plans on a non-responsive/mobile theme option? Using FISD on a phone, not digging the stripped down version.

Either request the desktop version using your mobile browser, or use the tapatalk app.

Request desktop site doesn't work with the new versions of Invision.

Then use Tapatalk. This forum was not built nor is it maintained with mobiles as its primarily means of access. It's made for real computers.

I really love this forum, so I have to ask a quick question regarding the notifications:

Before the big upgrade, I used the notifications to keep track of all things and deleted them after use.

Since the upgrade, notifications become more and more each day, what makes it harder to keep an overview.

Would it be possible to make them deletable again? Can't see a reason for having them archived, beside of increased loading time and data capacity.

I'm pretty sure that if you dig around in the settings you see what you want notifications for and turn off the rest.

Thanks for your reply, Mathias. Sounds like you might have gotten me wrong. The problem I meant, is not about getting too many notifications, but to be able to delete them after usage. Prior to the upgrade, my notifications showed me all threads I have to look in. When this was done, I deleted them. No notifications left = everything checked. This doesn't work any more now.

I guess the forum tries to be facebook, which also doesn't let you delete notifications.

But there is a different background color for the notifications you've checked and those that are new ;)

Yeah I'm going to dismiss this as a "non issue".

If you click the "Pages" tab in the navigation bar (but not one of the dropdown items) it takes you to a garbled newsletter/old front page thing.

Now it leads to the index page, I think that's better ;)

Just wanted to mention an issue, that surely many users had:

 

When writing a new comment, the soft-buttons for 'Insert other media' and 'Submit Reply' are so close to each other, you can easily hit the wrong one. No big deal if only type text, but really annoying if you want to add photos and suddenly your comment went live. :glare:

 

Idea: move the 'Submit Reply' button to the opposite side or add a pop up window 'Are you sure you want to post this now?' (or something like this).

 

Just an idea, as I have no clue about webpages and how difficult this is. I love the FISD so just wanted to suggest something to improve the page a little bit. :)
