Click on Forums instead of YakTribe Games. The Forums link at the start of the breadcrumb is the forum main page. The YakTribe Games should probably be renamed as it's misleading.Is there a way to go back to the main forum page from a subforum group, other than selecting forum from the dropdown menu or hitting the back button?
For example if I click on the “Tribe News” forum, then click then click the button at the top that takes me back to “Yaktribe Games” i can only access the three forums that are part of that group.
There is no li k in the Yaktribe Games subgroup that takes you back to the main forum page.
Correct, instead of sub-forums, they're now topics. So in the Necromunda node, you can use the Topic options to drill down to what you want specifically.Edit: also where is the rules questions sub forum? Currently it looks like it is just pumped into the all encompassing Necromunda group.
I’m playing with this as I’m editing this comment. I assume the way I’m supposed to find rules queries is to go to the Necromunda Node and then select the sub-Node for rules?
Well it actually remembers what topics you're looking at but I see what you mean for going directly to what used to be a sub-forum. I'll see what options there are for maybe adding the topics to the node container which would in effect achieve the same thing. Your feedback is appreciated (that sounds so canned lol), but I need these responses to tune what I'm trying to do here and make it work for you all. If many users just get annoyed then it's not working for us, it's not a better system and we may need to go back to sub-forums.If this is the case is there a way to save a selection of different node selections as shortcuts for each user? It’s going to get really annoying to have to select and unselect sub-nodes to view different categories in the forum and keep track of what I have and haven’t read.
I am probably an old grognard, but I liked that the old forum was a proper forum and not a #metadata social media platform.
There seems to be an issue with a lot of the color styling and new flagging. It's a high priority for me as that's one of the core features of XF that must work properly. I couldn't do without new post coloring and behavior.1) Is there something to differentiate threads with new posts from threads I'm up to date with in the "traditional" forum areas? At the moment a post I have read looks the same as a post I have not.
I'll see what I can do. Since all the sub-forums are now merged, there's a lot more than there used to be. If drilling down to a particular topic(s) then it's not as bad, and maybe some of the stickies shouldn't be there anymore but instead featured another way.2) Is there something to differentiate the "sticky" threads from the "general" threads - for example in the Necromunda subforum there are quite a lot of sticky threads (with the little red pin), and you have to scroll reasonably far down to get to the "general" threads. The little red pin doesn't feel like it's enough to suggest "scroll further young padawan, there are fresh and hip threads below". Formerly they were separated by an obvious box, which was a bit clearer.
Agreed. I think I had it tuned more on the dev site when testing it so I'll take a look and adjust it.3) Personally I find it difficult to read the forum areas with art behind the names/descriptions. I feel the images are too bright, so the contrast between bright image and ligth text makes it difficult for me. It might just be me, and if so never mind, but it might be clearer if the images were dulled/darkened a little bit more?
That's correct. One of the big requests for the media featuring is making sure all the gang images weren't showing. If you're using the same album but want other media within the album to show, it needs to be moved to an album in another category or personal.I use some of my finished mini pictures, stored in my "Stoof's Stuff" album, as ganger images in the tools. Does that mean the entirity of my finished stuff album is now marked as out-of-bounds for the art ticker at the top?
Yes this is something I was trying to get done by release but couldn't. I'll be adjusting the main site to suite the forums.Also any chance the menu drop down can be put on the right hand side to match the drop down menu location of the entry page, or vice versa?
As above, it's a high priority for me to get fixed.Previously, you could tell if there were unread posts in a thread by it being marked bold in the list, but I can't find something equivalent in the new system. Am I missing something here?
Delete should be returned to your permissions now. I believe you worked out the covers since I approved some for you?I have 2 questions please. 1. How can we delete media like we used to? and 2. How can we make an image into an album cover. Thx
