What other purchases would there be?  Seems odd to have a whole section for that.

 

When switching to the IP Board Theme, I get a Server Error just about everytime I try to do something (load a new page)

 

It is for items we can do more with down the road.  It also handles the contact us support requested and what have you.  If you used that for example...they would show up their.

 

In regards to the IP Board theme...Interesting...not sure.  I have turned it off for now as I am not sure why it would not work.  Thanks for letting us know.

The IP Board theme no longer appears as an option (although mobile ) does.  IMO, it's a much better look than Executive, although it does result in a constant server error.


I'm sure Directv can't wait to get their hands on your unit.

I'm trying to figure out how to have one bookmark for just threads that I follow, and another bookmark for just all new posts in any thread. When I set them up it keeps taking me to the same new content screen, and when I change it, it then changes it for the other.

 

I usually use these two bookmarks all day long ... I client on subscribed and browse around, and then click on all new and browse around, and want them to be totally separate and available via a bookmark, and not have to click around on the new content screen.

 

I also want it to exclude the Dish forums.

 

Sorry, not sure on this at all.  Which I could help but really not sure at this point as it is all new.

David shouldn't the label identifying the link be shown, just not have a number displaying when no new.  That's previously how it worked.

 

Hi...Not sure....but this is not the old software so things will work differently.

Overall, I like the new look.  Congrats on getting it up and running as quick as you did.

 

One thing I haven't figured out is how to mark all posts read.  My routine coming to this forum is to check for new posts, go through them with some replies if wanted, and then mark all posts read so I can do it again.

I had to go thru the forgot password routine to get in. Was that by design?. Trying to prove that I am human to the computer is getting harder ever day for me.

 

Nope, my password as well as most just worked...But it could have maybe been special characters or something in your password or something?  Or just used the wrong one? All in all, thanks for letting us know that reset worked. ;)

Hi...Not sure....but this is not the old software so things will work differently.  

Yeah, I was wondering about that. What if you click on all the individual forums under a major topic and then a new forum gets added. I want all DirecTV forums and if new ones get added I wouldn't know. I did the setup once and that's it.

The reason I'm wondering is because clicking the unlabeled area does bring you to the messanger.

Here is what clicking that blank space goes to.

Actually it should open a window you can use for navigation around the site.

The icons on the navigation bar are all missing. Messaging, Notifications, and Forum Jump all work if you know where they are, but the icons are not there.

The magnifying glass in the search button is also missing. Perhaps the icons are the same color as the background?

That's not good. Are we going to have to start over with Friends & Contacts?

 

Maybe.  But I know they did import.  I sent a note to the guy who made the migration imports to see if he might be able to help.  But it did say it imported.  So we will see.

Yes, but I don't think there was new content in 12 different threads in the 1 second it took for me to hit New Content again.

 

Lets give this one a few days and see what happens.  With all the caching going on etc, we need to let things settle maybe.  If need be, I will need to contact the developers to get some info on what it should be doing.

It does, I was just providing the link my browser said it was being redirected to after clicking the space.  This was another unlabeled location on the menubar.

Browser issue?  Security software issue?  I have tried it in Chrome, FireFox, and Safafi and see it all without an issue.  I am thinking it is on your end.  Try clearing your cache maybe?  Just thoughts.
