I think I am the only one here who doesn't want board index to give me active topics. I want board index to give me board index. I must be daft.

Me, too. I like the "Active Topics" link to show active topics and "Board Index" to show board index. :mrgreen:

Broken feature:

The prior [ LiveLeak ] decoding isn't working anymore, I see a message of some "argument missing" in the space where the video ought to be. But it seems that the space for the player gets reserved, lots of white space.

I'd like for board index to give me the board index too, and active topics to give me active topics, but since "unread posts" seems to have disappeared and both of those buttons have, at one time since the change, performed that function, I commented on it.

In a perfect world, there would be an unread posts button that didn't involve the damn drop down. Now that the unread marker has changed from something large enough to see and click easily to something very tiny and hard to hit on the phone, an unread posts button would be even nicer. I don't care if it's called roadside weeds.

At some time in the past, I got tired of trying to find the "unread posts", and added this bookmark:

thefogbow.com/forum/search.php?search_id=unreadposts

For my desktop browser, it's in the bookmark bar, and on my phone it's the top bookmark. So on the desktop, I get there with a single click, and on the phone, two.

That's what I'm using now, but a simple button would be easier.

My beloved Latte is still misbehaving: Contextual menus/drop-down menus/pop-up menus all over the place.

Thank you, Foggy!

Popups? I get none. I have a popup blocker installed, of course. I don't seem to be missing anything.

Not ad pop-ups. Stuff like the drop down menus, the little squares with the page numbers on them...stuff like that pops up all over in random places. Mine comes and goes.

Yay, I have Active Topics now. Thanks, Fogs :thumbs:

I just put up a major announcement about this. You don't use the BBCode any more. On LiveLeak AND FOR ANY OTHER VIDEO SOURCE ON THE PLANET (GRAPHIC SHOWING COMPLETE LIST ON P. 1 OF THIS THREAD), you go to the video you want, you click Share, you copy the link to the video, and you paste it WITH NO BBCODE AROUND IT.

Like so:

Latte and Digi are not working and I can't fix them. Please don't use Latte or Digi. The most recent versions of those board styles are not compatible with the most recent version of the software that runs the forum.

When they are upgraded, I'll try to make them work.

Yes, I have yet to fix the graphic logos. I'll get around to that, but that's not function it's appearance only. ;)
