Forum Update Coming October 8th – 10th

Recommended Posts

NOTIFICATIONS

While reading the Leica Forum, I received a notification (at the bottom of the web page) that I was quoted.  I clicked on the notice at the bottom of the page and was taken directly to the post.  However, at the top of the Leica Forum where the notifications are listed, the notification I already clicked on at the bottom of the page was still shown (in bolder red) as if I had not read it yet.

I had that with the old forum & classifieds.

Will come again but needs some work.

Are you also still working on the date of the original start of a topic in the Unread Content?

In the old forum, when I clicked any of the notifications I have received of new posts in a particular thread, I was taken to the first unread post in that thread even if I clicked on a notification for a later post in that thread.

Now, clicking on a notification, brings me to the post to which that notification refers.

While this is logical it isn't very userfriendly since the forum insists on sometimes grouping posts together in one notification and sometimes providing notifications for single posts. The result is that one has to scroll among the notifications to find the one referring to the first unread post or, if clicking on a later notification, go back in the thread to look for the first unread post. This is a pain in long threads, such as the I like film thread.

Is this by design or has something gone wrong, and can it be restored to how it was (or is there a setting)?

My recollection is different, I think it is working the same as before.

 

What is a shame is that all the new notifications, which are highlighted in bold red, lose the highlighting as soon as you look at the first one. But that happened before too.

Don’t forget that this is COMPLETELY different software. It’s not an upgrade from the old one.

 

It’s remarkable that Andreas has got it working so well, and so like the old software, IMHO.

Sorry, i have to correct you.

It was and upgrade from the old one but a big leap from version 3.4.9 to 4.3.6.

The preparation took several weeks, the „hot“ migration was 4 hours and the background processes took about 5 days to put everything in place again.

Forgive me if this has been raised before, but I don't see anywhere a counter that shows the number of  views for threads — only a counter for the number of posts. It's a basic piece of useful information that I would assume a forum upgrade would not eliminate. Any strong reason to leave it out by choice?
