Things I've noticed:

  • 'Likes' are different; not sure I like the new way, but it's the built-in method and our old way was a custom change I'd done
  • link to return to top is gone. big green arrow is new
  • breadcrumbs and the bottom are gone fixed
  • some alignment/visual issues with the categories/forums

I don't have an iPhone to try it on, but I'll take a look with my Android.
I'm trying to get file attachments working, but in the interim, if you can find a place to upload a screenshot so I can see how you mean, that would be great.

Also, it looks like it had a problem with the characterset from your browser; the apostrophe got borked.
Damn unicode.

There is now a fancy green up arrow on the right that does this.

It should be same as it was, the stylesheet was unchanged. But, it could be off.
The total is white and the new post count is orange.

I don't access this much from my phone, but it appears to be normal on mine.

I think the color scheme was swapped. Orange for overall and white for new.

But I could be wrong.

Quick reply is at the bottom, and huge.

Lot of changes. Some are of questionable value ....... but I am glad to see the user list back out where it is more converient.

Wow, all things considered, everything looks great! I'm sure this is a lot of hard work, planning and headache for anyone involved in the switch. Thank you!

what is interesting to me is that when I first saw this post, yours did not wrap, but then I made a post and after the screen refreshed, when I looked again, yours was wrapped.
I think I can adjust the width of that box in the stylesheet.

Purp, if you intend to keep the scroll to top "green arrow" could we kill the visual scroll up? It's just window dressing and a little annoying after a few times of using it.

Thanks, OCD, will do!

I think this upgrade was one of the final preparatory steps. By getting it done before the move, the actual move itself will be a LOT simpler and I can default to using the latest MySQL & PHP versions right off the bat.
As soon as I have IP Addresses (I need to call the guy today and get that nailed down), I can start planning the actual move itself.

I have not looked into any of that, and I don't know what it involves. Possibly just a CSS thing, but I don't know. I'll look into it once we're moved.

Probably has an animation time set that causes the slow scroll... this link will give you an idea of what to look for in PHP or JS:

https://www.codegrepper.com/code-examples/javascript/php+scroll+to+top+of+page

Would either remove the animate or set the time to zero...

Yeah, I just got done looking through it. The CSS only describes the button itself, not any of the animations. The movement is a single javascript call, and I have the function name, but have not looked at the code for it, yet. I'll add it to the list.

Additionally, the new 'Like' system can be turned off, and then editing a template, I can add the old system back in, I think. Either way, it was fairly simple code and I can rewrite it, if need be. Maybe rewriting it to have more than just 'Like' and going more Facespace and having images would be better.

Also, the ads at the bottom regularly hide the green up arrow... so, it either needs to get moved, the ads need to go away, or I need to put the 'Top' link back in.

One thing I have not seen, and maybe my poor old eyes are just missing it .... but if I read a thread, and don't respond to it, is there a wat to return back to the forum in one step? (there used to be thread and forum links at the bottom of the thread)

Yeah, that's the breadcrumbs at the bottom of the page missing thing that I mentioned above. I recall having to re-add it after the last upgrade, too.

So, my guess is that iPhones are inputting text in 4-byte unicode.
This is part of what I expected with the server move, and I believe that I've found the solution, but I cannot enable it until we're actually on the new server. So, it's annoying for now, but it will get fixed easily enough.

It used to be you could toggle an ignored members posts, but that appears gone. May be by design, their is a place to toggle, but it is dark print and does nothing. Also type indicating edited posts is in the same dark print.

Edit: I later found the toggling of posts is possible, on the left if the page loads for longer periods of time. But it is in vague low brightness, not as bright as the rest of the page.

There will be one more brief period of downtime later today. I'll be upgrading the database server.

Yep I was also Pacific time by default, but as Purp said you can change this in your profile settings. Though I'll admit it's odd because you get like 237 location options per time zone, mostly NOT in USA. It works just fine. Just found it odd/interesting.

There is a default setting I can set for the server. It is currently set to GMT (not Pacific). I'm kinda torn between leaving it at that and setting it to where the server itself is (Eastern).
