Found the foe list but it's buried good and you have to search the username to add someone. Can we not have the option we had on the old site where it was as easy as adding a buddy?
Actually it could be made just as easy as the [Add to Buddy List] box that is currently being used.

I'm not sure if this has been mentioned yet, but I hate how after you write a message, that instead of it returning to the thread, it sends you to the sub-forum.

Other than that, I like it.  I'm happy we didn't have to wait 10 freakin' years for the next upgrade...

For some reason, I seem to keep losing my paragraph formatting between typing and posting.
I've been working on this bug - it seems to only occur if you use the Quote button to start the post. Will work on this and the logo link today...

Testing the fix for leaving line breaks between lines in a quoted reply...

This should have a space between it and the line above... Edit: It worked!

I believe I've now set Return to topics after posting by default as the default setting for all members.

How about having the CFL logo at the top link to the CFL.ca website rather than the forums, since the word Home beside already links to the forum home.
Okay, okay, I'll start linking the logos to the main site. Likely make that update this weekend as it takes a bit of code to write.
Thanks Sully. Always bugged me with the old site that there was no link to the CFL.ca site.
Not a big fan of the new site so far but appreciate that you are willing to listen to the users and actually make some changes.
Thanks Sully for putting the main page logo on the forums, but it doesn't seem to be working for me

We recently upgraded the forum software here from phpbb 3.0.x to SMF 2.0.14. The upgrade of forum software was done to fix horrendous bugs with the old software, not for aesthetic reasons - issues with the site sending e-mails were particularly problematic.

A change of forum software requires us to adopt a new forum look (the theme for the phpBB site won't work with SMF). But now it's time to make the site look nicer than it does out of the box. As a result, I'm looking for your input as to what needs visual tweaking around the place!

On my list currently:

  • DONE: Increase the font sizes overall
  • DONE: Added a "Unread Posts" button to the header
  • DONE: Added user post count, registration date, location underneath their names
  • DONE: Clean up topic view style at mobile breakpoint
  • DONE: Add the "Who's Online" box at the bottom of all pages
  • DONE: Links on the "Unread Posts" page automatically jump you down to the most recent unread post in a topic
  • DONE: Doubled the size of the message window used to post messages in
  • DONE: Add a nicer WYSIWYG editor for posts
  • DONE: Clean up the main forum list style at all breakpoints (ugliest page on the site in my opinion)
  • DONE: Fix the issue where quoted replies lose the line breaks in between lines
  • DONE: Set the default option after you make a post to be return to the thread (instead of to the topic list)
  • Look into a "Like" button modification
  • Change the logo in the top-left corner to go to www.cfl.ca, and the team site logos to the team sites

How do you send a private message or know you have received one?

Edit: never mind. I see it now.

the cfl.ca logo at the top of the page, appeared, didn't work, disappeared, reappeared, and now, for me, still does not work.
Why is there more than one 'home' button needed for the forums at the top of the page when you are already are in the 'forum' page

Uploading attachments  stopped working

All I get is an icon

and now its working

Preisst

I found it was nice to be notified if someone quoted one of your posts.  Is this function now gone?

When I click on the "Show new replies to your posts." function under 'Hello Preisst' it tells me Unable to load the 'replies' template."

Thanks.

A couple of things I'd like to see:
  • A "Next" link at the bottom of threads to take me to the next page. Especially useful when I'm using my phone, as it's really tricky clicking on the right page number.
  • The ability to use indented lists without the "Toggle View" option.

By the way, I really appreciate the Toggle View option. It provides a lot of flexibility for those who know the bbcode tags.

Not sure if this has been brought up yet, but is there a reason the site never keeps me logged in any more?  I always have to log in, and then it takes me to the overall forum page instead of the Ticats page I was on.
