NEW SOFTWARE & SERVER UPGRADE: Task List, bug reports, monitor this thread

Discussion in 'Tech Support, General Q&A, Site Feedback & More' started by Spark, Apr 1, 2011.

  1. Think I narrowed it down. Tried the 'vB Bold Gray' style, selected at the bottom of the page, and it shows the BF logo. Then tried the standard (blue) 'BFC Style', no BF logo here (replaced with the 'vBulletin' logo). Then switched to 'BFC Style - 1', and the BF logo comes back. So, the missing logo only seems to be an issue with the standard 'BFC Style' (as implemented in Firefox 4, anyways).

    Just switched to "Style - 1" and got the BFC Logo back as well. Thanks.

    If you find a vb4 theme you like, post a link to it and if I like it we'll see about integrating it.

    Reboot. Try alternate browser if possible. That you can access on one computer but not another says it's not the website.

    BFC Style shouldn't even be available. I thought I turned it off.

    That's weird that it's not putting in the correct URL either.

    This is why I hate 3rd party plugins.

    the facebook like button at the top of threads "Sign Up to see what your friends like" has the whole page jumping around until it decides if its going to be one line or two. i'm using google chrome.

    I hate to be a whiner, but honestly I can read any of these forums easier than the new version of BFC. I think the color of unread links is just too pastel to give good contrast in the current scheme, and the black/ white version just about blinds me. I also agree that there's just too much information jammed into the line under the thread title.




    Also, the quick nav still won't scroll on iPad. Again, sorry to be a whiner.

    Is there a one click way to jump straight to the url www.bladeforums.com from within the site (without any slashes / subfolders)?
    It is a nice starting point for navigating the forums.

    I've got Google Chrome. I key b into my browser window and it takes me to www.bladeforums.com but I don't recall how long it took to train it to do that.

    The browser window in Chrome will take you to a website if you give it enough information to identify one. Otherwise, it uses the window as a search -- which will find your website or information on it. For Bladeforums, the b seems to b enough. :D

    It took me a few minutes to find that little 'Report post' icon. It used to be proud and clear in the RH upper corner.

    Find it now. ;)

    Almost all the Mac browsers work the same way. It populates the address bar with all the URLs you have visited in order of frequency. If you spent more time on bustyblondes.com than you do on BladeForums then it would pop up first. :D

    Yeah, I am using Safari and it does this. It is kind of crazy.

    I added it to my favorites toolbar. Just wondered if I was missing the obvious, as usual.

    In my For Sale thread - editing my original post & post #6, I was trying to add the large red - "This Knife is Sold" to the post. And I high lighted the words as normal? But when I click on the color? The text? The bold button? The center spacing?
    It would add all that? But it would be at the very top of the post and not do anything to the text?
    I had to type it all in by hand around the text? Could not use the edit buttons to change the text? :confused:
    Is it a bug? My computer? or Me? :confused:

    Thanks for the help.

    Try it again sometime. I don't know what might have gone wrong. I've been doing that sort of thing with no problem even after the new software came on line.

    You need computer skills to match your knifemaking skills, then we could ask you for advice! :)
