I’ll see if it can be fixed. In the meantime, scroll up to use it.

Nathan - Site runs great .Thanks for the upgrade. You managed to keep the general feel of the old TFL with some cool new looks. Congrats. One question - if your forum platform is Xenforo, I read somewhere that they have a feature whereby users can ignore entire threads, not just other users. Do you think activating such a feature would be useful? There are some tiresome threads I could definitely do without seeing on first pages of some subforums. Not a big deal, though.

Unfortunately the only way to do this is with custom development. It’s not baked into Xenforo.

I used to see a media gallery in every discussion thread. This gallery no longer exists.

Yeah, the photos are a bit more cumbersome on my phone. I'll have to work out a good way to upload from there.

I am having an issue where, when I enter a thread with new posts, it doesn't automatically take me to the new post, but a few posts previously. I need to test that on multiple devices, though, to see if it's consistent.

In that particular case, the image in question is inside of a quote, which always has been hidden via View Attachment. If you're replying to the original post that has an image, it should be there.
Yes, the original post has a picture the user embedded. I replied to his post. The image is no longer viewable and just includes the link.

The original post has the image in-line:

Any time any of us uses the quote function on the board, it links the images instead of re-displaying them in-line. This is to save on bandwidth and keep you from scrolling past images you already saw in a thread.

Maybe some day I will actually understand all this techno talk. But probably not. Glad I don’t have to. I just more or less figure out what I need to know when I need to know it.

FWIW, things seem faster on my end. That’s all to the better.

Same here, the site loads up much quicker now.
