Quicklinks > New posts(DirecTV Forums)

GONE! Where is it? I have no desire to view every new post across every forum, 90% of which I have absolutely no interest in.

IF it ain't broke.........don't fix it..........

That will be coming back. :)

OK, thanks, That is a fundamental part of my every visit here and I would find it very hard to do without it. Good job otherwise.

You used to be able to quote posts to people in PM's. Looks like you can't do that anymore. :(

I am a DBSTalk paid member and Adds are showing.



Hi...The only ad you will see is the top 728x90 ad. If you log out, you will see their are others that non-club member see. Hope you really do no mind much as it does not take any site space that would just be not used anyway. (unlike the other ads that are blocked because you are a club member.)

Thanks

Not sure this is what you mean, but on the right side of the Forum name you will see a +. If you click that then that forum section will close down. Click again to open it back up.

Look good! Good Job Chris!

I am sorry, but I think it is way to bright. It hurts my eyes. Is this something that can be changed?

As mentioned, new styles will come at a later date. The priority was to get the upgrade done as the old styles were not compatible with the new software version.

Thanks

The biggest thing I am having an issue with is the link colors.

The orange and blue/bold and non-bold get confusing looking in the forums to tell new from old since the orange is the clicked/unclicked which should be less important but is mostly all you see. It would be much better if the more standard web design idea was used of clicked/unclicked colors being much closer together (like different shades of blue or something).

Sorry if this is confusing, I hope you understand what I mean. The rest of the forum layout is pretty good besides the links IMO.

EDIT: Here is an example, it just looks confusing while browsing around the forum:

I did click the + to close the topics but wish to 'em go away.

When I click on the forums tab at the top there are 3 Dish Network headers, I want to get rid of them by hiding or move them to the bottom of the stack since I am a DirecTV guy and have no interest in Dish Network stuff.

Well, "I hope" this will be improved, so I'm not seeing it as a club member.
I really don't like seeing ads, as they do grab my attention and as a club member, they shouldn't.

Chris already mentioned he is going to work on finding it again and bringing it back. vBulletin uses third party mods to add many features like that and they need to find new ones that are compatible with the new version ;)


Chris, David: There used to be an option to "hide" forums from view (Display, new posts, etc.). Is that coming back? I can be patient... :)


Yes, hopefully that will come back. Give us some time. I have to look for a version that will work with this software.

Just noticed that the +'s and -'s to the right of the forum titles for expanding/collapsing them are backwards.
