Yep, that needed to index into the system and it also is based on your last vist and activate on the site.  So it will change based on what is happening.

 

Thanks

 

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.


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

Yeah, me too. I have a bookmark for subscribed, and a separate bookmark for new posts, but it doesn't seem like you can do both since it always goes to the same new content screen.

 

Seeing the bookmark were made for the old software function, you would not want to use those as they would not be correct.

They will light up when you have a notice in their to see.   :)

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.

Twice so far, I've clicked on New Content and it's said "There is no new content".  I clicked on it again, and a dozen threads show up.

FWIW I've seen that too.

 

Is there a BUG report section?

Yes, I agree, just trying to setup new bookmarks to do exactly the same thing.

 

One bookmark to show all threads that I subscribe to.

Is there a way to change how many post on a page?

 

Not at this time...Will add to the list of things we will try to add.  Thank you.

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.

I noticed my friends list is empty. I take it in time they will appear?

I don't think friends made the transfer, I don't have any either.

Also to the left of :"Forums" there is an "Open Quick Navigation" with no labeling.

Here is what clicking that blank space goes to.

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 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.

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.

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. ;)
