Can you PM me details, I can't find your post. I've tweaked the tools available so we won't get crazy font sizes etc.

 

Hey @Tait

 

There aren't really any details to PM, on I think every other forum I have ever visited there is a regular reply box as we are all used to and then an 'advanced' editor which allows you to edit the html or other type of code that defines the formatting of the post. 

Do you understand what I mean? I can grab screen shots from other forums if you like? Or is there a reason you don't actually want to implement an advanced/code editor?

Also can I delete one of my own posts if (like above) I make a double post?

Ahhh ok! Yes got it. I don't want people editing html. If there is an issue I should be able to fix it for everyone as opposed to people (the more tech savvy) having to manually fix issues. It makes the forum less portable and can result in a messier experience (people setting fonts and colours all over the place).

If there is a particular thing you need I can help though and will do my best.

Do you mean BBCode or actual html? I would expect the forum/tapatalk to disallow user entered HTML from being rendered.

I would suggest if this happens again, and this is the first time I've seen it so far - that you report your own post. Then a mod will come along and delete it. You can edit it for 5 minutes so you could just change it to delete me etc. if you wanted.

Ah ... does that mean only the default font size?  I couldn't see how to make use of a larger fontsize?

 

 

Whatever the size, it might help if the "Insert existing attachment" prompt includes a  " ...(Maxsize 2048K)" clue. 

Larger sizes i presume can be handled via "Insert Image from URL"  ?

🐱:good:

@Tait sorry forgot to tag this earlier relating to font and picture sizes.

Hm, fair enough - it seems to be a feature of every other forum I have ever been on (not necessarily a html editor, but at least an 'advanced' editor you can change the code that effects the formatting) - and regardless of how well implemented the forum is they still come in useful from time to time. 

For example when making a post with several quotes, being able to customise the user field can be useful for an explanatory post, you might wish to make the quote from "A user on HB Forum" for example.

I'm sure you could one-by-one implement such features into the normal reply box but why do this when these outlier cases can be solved with an advanced editor?

Keeping things clean is IMHO a poor excuse, it's easier to make a rule about hard to read or gawdy posts and enforcing it - other forums with advanced editors have very little to no misuse of the editor even without such a rule.

Is there a way to see all unread content as topics rather than individual posts? I only check in once a day or so, the list is too long to make me want to bother

 

Not sure if this is what you meant but - I went to "Activity" and then "New Posts" and then on the top right switched from Expanded to Condensed (that you can see in line with Past Hour ? That changed it to show the topics I think as before I could see multiple posts for some of these topics.

I have kind of just been posting about this over here:

When I do that I get EVERY new post so then you see multiples mirrored over on TT too. If there’s a lot of banter within a thread you get EVERY one.

I'm not able to search in the For Sale/Swap section of the forum. I select the "This forum" option in the "Search in" option but no matter what word I'm searching for, I always get zero results.

Is there any way to find / view a list of just the latest posts without all preceding posts ?   Or am I missing something ?

I think if you click on the "Mark site read" at the bottom of the page right hand side,  the next time you come on the site it might show only the new posts.
