My opinion is that Chuck MUST use the Lackey is a Turd thread whenever using screen shots to help folks!

Chuck, I think the new forum format/software works great. I am on my iPhone 99.9% of the time here with no issues.

Thank you for the positive feedback, DBB!

Hi @Jay I do not see a way to eliminate the sidebar content for tablets in landscape mode as I believe @Stradling had the same request, but I am looking into programming some code in there that can allow you to hide them. I'll circle back once I can figure out how to accomplish this. 

I don't have the same problem on my phone so why would we have this issue with a tablet?

Jay I looked into this and there's nothing that can be done, unless I totally remove the sidebar blocks altogether.

The way it decides if it's going to give you the mobile experience or desktop view is based on the size of the device's screen. That is why when in portrait it will use mobile but if you flip your tablet to landscape it will use desktop and thus show the sidebar content.

I just want to know what happened to the drug thread. Just as I was about to buy some Xanax from a very nice young man who guaranteed that it was 99.8% pure (or I would get my money back), bang, it was gone. Now I am going to have to go down to the homeless camp and pay probably twice the price for pills that have been God knows where, with no money back guarantee. Thanks, Chuck.

If I reply to a post in a thread, it seems to automatically save my reply so I can't edit.

EDIT: Ok, it worked that time.

But if I reply a second time in a thread it repeats my saved and unremovable earlier reply too.

EDIT: Ok, it's obviously fucking with me now.

My biggest gripe: Why is there no more "preview post" button?

Or am I missing something? It's driving me bonkers. 

Other than that I am enjoying the new forum.

Ask and you shall receive. I have added the preview post button in the toolbar. @CaliAngel

For those of you asking where to change your display name, you can do that by clicking on your profile pic in the upper right, choose "Account Settings" from the dropdown, then choose display name on the left side bar of options.

Chuck, the new boards are great, but there are two things about them that I am struggling with. First, I wish the new boards, like the old boards, automatically started you back where you were the last time you read a thread.  Now when I click on a thread, I have no idea where I left off before. 

 

Second, I have on several occasions triedd to quote someone, but then messed up when deleting text from their post. I'd like to just simply start over - go back to their post, RE-click quote, and start anew. But the boards don't let me do that. Instead, they save what I had done before and don't let me start fresh. Does that make sense?

Hi @wopphil sorry for the delay. I've been extremely busy of late. 

First, I wish the new boards, like the old boards, automatically started you back where you were the last time you read a thread.  Now when I click on a thread, I have no idea where I left off before. 

There is a black line that while in a thread it will indicate where you left off.

Yes, I answered this in chat a couple weeks back. 

If you're ever in a situation where it has saved a quote that never got posted or you need to wipe out a post (saved quote and all), simply hit the source button in the upper left of the toolbar while in post mode. Once you do that, select all and hit delete. This will remove all of the code that has your text and the person's quote you were quoting.
