The background color/image of the search field matches the currently selected color scheme. It might be helpful if it were set to an opposite color (white vs dark schemes) so that people know where it is. It does not immediately stand out that there is a search field up there.

Another request. Can you disable the showing of search bots in the "users are reading this topic" portion below a thread? I know it is an important thing for you (admin) to be able to see what search bots are visiting the forum, but I doubt it has much use for the regular users.

When you have time, please do bring back the "Delete My Cookies" option in the forums' footer menu, or, even better, add it to the "More" tab, on the top menu. It sure is handy, but there's no hurry at all, of course!

Can we get a "Forum Home" link somewhere at the bottom of pages? I had gotten used to having it there to click on when I had read to the bottom of a thread.


From the last upgrade.. requesting again :lol:

 

EDIT: Nevermind, I found a link back to the board index at the bottom. I didn't realize it was a link at first. :blushing:

Thank you VERY much for improving the contrast in quoted text, it's much much easier to read quotes now. :thumbup

I really don't like the fact that it now takes 2 clicks instead of 1 to mark forums read.

For the "friends online" widget at the top, is it possible to change the background color of the number bubble? It being red makes me think there's a problem, like I got a PM or there is a report. Maybe it can be green or something?

Is there a way to have hyperlinked text show up in blue in the final post, like before? (Without having to tweak it manually and every time, that is.) Or maybe some color that offers greater contrast to the default text color? Right now, it shows up on my screen in black, the same color as regular text (maybe a wee bit stronger, but hard to tell the difference without looking closely at it). Thus, without hovering over it it's hard to tell at a glance whether this or this is a link.

It looks like this for me:

Are you using a non-default theme?

A non-default theme? I didn't even know that I could change it!  :)

 

So I guess that the answer is -- no, I'm using whatever the default is. FWIW, that's on IE8.

It would be nice if unread posts in a thread were marked as such somehow. While the "take me to the first unread post" link in front of a thread name works 99% of the time, it would still be nice to have a visual indicator inside a thread.

Regarding the issue of the coloring of hyperlinks, I made a screenshot of a post that includes how it looks both in the reply box and in the preview pane. If it comes out for you the way I see it on my screen, you'll see that the hyperlinked text in the reply box has good contrast (blue hyperlink vs. black text), but then it reverts to black in the preview pane and is difficult to tell apart from the regular text around it:

 

Attached File  Hyperlinks.jpg   96.04KB   2 downloads

 

The factors that save the situation in this case are that the hyperlinked text is in bold in a different typeface and larger point size. Still, the screenshot illustrates the issue of blue vs. black for hyperlinks. If the linked text were in the middle of a paragraph and matching the format of the surrounding text, it would be awfully difficult to know that it's a hyperlink rather than merely underlined text, and so the reader wouldn't necessarily know that it's clickable.

 

What can be done about this, either at the user (my) end or at the programming end?

Can we remove the user profile link in the topic notification emails? I'm always clicking on the **** thing instead of the link to the thread. It's all the way on top making it an easy target unless you take time to think about it.
such and such (http://www.msfn.org/...er/126926-blah/) has just posted a reply to a topic that you have subscribed to titled "such and such"

Can we please get 3 or 5 minutes before a post shows as edited? I'll settle for 1 minute! No? 30 seconds? I hate that nasty edited thing. :)

Everyone makes typos and grammar errors.

Thanks!
