Brand update and maintenance, 26 September - more details
..."more Details" links to information saying:
Brand and site maintenance - 26 September 2018Owing to planned maintenance, this site will be unavailable overnight on 26 September, including the early hours of 27 September. We are doing two pieces of work:
Refreshing the design to reflect the National Autistic Society's new brand.Updating the software to a new version. The main benefit to this should be improvements to the listing of messages in threads, and the flagging of new messages. We want to implement this in order to help with problems that users have reported
...The words "new brand" link to a (small) Page, here:www.autism.org.uk/.../2018-09-13-changing.aspx
... いま, From myself: I begin this Thread because that is one of the things which I myself used to be most useful for, upon this Forum... But Now things are different and so I Post less (!). Also, However, not everyone notices the Main NAS message, and, also, WebPM says that "As ever, your feedback after the update is welcome." upon the following Thread:
...Lastly from me, this next Link is actually the latest Thread for Posting "Strange" Things... but not many people remembered it...
...That Thread contains many Links to other Threads which are for specific problems (Older Errors, Notifications, Ideas, Spam, Copybots, etc.).
In closing: All in all, Thanks NAS - especially Mr.WebPM. And Good Luck to all.
We have made some updates today to the new look and feel. These should resolve:
thank you for sorting out the bold not bold issue.
I seem to have a delay though with it turning not bold - I have to leave that particular forum and then return to it before it unbolds a thread i have just read.
It is much improved, thank you, Even notifications appear, even when I am elsewhere they pop up in the top right corner “ three members have replied to,,,,”.
Allows me to check them out straight away to see who has responded.
Ooh I'd forgotten about notifications! I think I disabled them all when they weren't working properly and were erroneously notifying me of all sorts. I've just hopefully reset them to how I want it, and used to have it, ie notify me of replies to topics I've contributed to . Fingers crossed it will work !
I can't reproduce your problem with threads turning "normal". If I view a thread and return to the home page, it's immediately normal instead of bold. You could try clearing your cache. Does anyone else see this issue?
by home page, do you mean "index page for that forum, eg Autistic Adults". If so, then yes, there seems to be a delay with it going not bold. Or there was yesterday. Today seemed better. Will try clearing cache. Thanks.
PS notifications are back annoying me as I am having notifications on things I haven't posted on once again.
ok, realised I am a muppet. Reason there was a delay in some threads gong not bold was ... errr... coz I was using the "back browser" button to return to the index page, not using the "you are here" bit.
Apologies for my daftness!
hmmm...I now have no notifications again. Grrrr!!!!!AAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH!!!! please tell me what I am doing wrong. If I have "subscriptions" ticked I then get notifications on replies to threads I have not posted on. If I untick subscriptions I then don't seem to get any notifications at all.
What I want is the lightning bolt thingy to light up IF AND ONLY IF THERE ARE REPLIES TO THREADS I HAVE POSTED ON.
