In this thread we'll cover new features and new issues in version 2.1 of the forum software.


New things in forum software version 2.1:

Content Bookmarks - Bookmark a post or thread - include a note and tags to help you sort your bookmarks.



Post Sharing - Share a post on social media, with an easy two-click feature.



URL unfurling - Just a preview of URLs you link to.



Emoji changes:
A new picker that includes "recently used" emojis at the top.
Back end emoji management for Admin to play with.
:carlton::thumbsu:


Video uploads! Upload your videos from your phone.

Reactions: Not just LIKES any more. On desktop: hover for more reactions. On mobile, a long press pops up the extra reactions.



Push Notifications: You can opt to get notifications of convos and watched thread posts.


Reported Issues

19/6 Round Avatars:
Fixed - back to square.
Mobile Breadcrumbs: Went missing, now returned.
20/6 Dark Style: Some text is darker or has reverted to default. We will look at this over time.

Like the new layout, but theres no button so i can click back to Forums if im browsing(which was a previous feature which was idiot proof for users like myself).

Now i have to click back oodles of times which is sub optimal
Can you please reconsider reinstatement of the forums tab to make it easier on users like myself.

I don't understand sorry.

I can see the FORUMS link in the navigation.

Minor thing, looks like the thread header is still in black in night mode (not sure if it's just me though as I have a browser extension that fiddles with colorus a bit):

Maybe what i was referring to was the breadcrumbs that niles was referring to.

I used to be able to get back to forums quite easily through that function.

Now i have to click back 10 times to go back to Forums which is frustrating

on the forum that I administrate, it has the same reactions... but some are +1 and some are +0 and some are -1 to your "reaction score". I took out the ability to "-1" people because that can be severely abused. Is this change to this forum numerical in the same way (list?) and do you think it's worth keeping the ability to "-1" people if that does exist?

Just don't go to oval avatars. I worked with a former journo once who said at the Advertiser they always printed pictures of dead people in the 'Oval of Death'.
Perhaps just for retired/inactive members, then?
Transition must have gone smoothly. I was surprised to see the site up and running this morning.
Me too.

I’ll have a look. I don’t think so.
