Forum version upgraded


Recommended Posts

I have been poking around and find the upgrade quite handsome and functional! I like the list of users who react to posts.

Also, the upgrade fixed one of my nagging issues, which was when I used the "Activity" tab to see unread content (on mobile only), clicking the topic would take me to the first post in the topic, not the first unread post (as it does on the desktop). Now, on mobile or desktop, I get the first unread post when I click, which is great.

Downvoting is still there; just hover over the heart and you can up or down vote any post. On mobile, tap on the heart and then you can up or down vote.

There's way too much interest in down voting ;)

A like appears to be equivalent to an upvote, adds +1 in reputation. 

Kinda silly having both. It seems to differentiate on your activity feed though, but only by the icon which appears, the text still just says the generic 'reacted to'.

Hi John,

because I just found this thread:

I always use https where possible, and I see it also would work here without problems.

Unfortunately when I click on any link in the forum, the next page falls back to http always.

Could you redirect everything to https, please ?  It's just a setting in Apache or nginx, don't know what you use.

That would cause all embedded media (from external sites) in the forum to not show. There is a proxy workaround that I'm investigating.

I practiced on your comment. First I gave you a 'downvote' ( 1st time ever buddy:)) then a 'like' vote which cancelled the downvote. Then I 'upvoted' which cancelled the 'like' vote'. When you receive a combination of up, down and like votes it actually becomes quite colorful! ;)

Both "Like" and "Upvote" adds exactly 1 to reputation. So it does not matter which one you use. It seems that I'm unable to disable the "Like" functionality. So I guess you can use "Like" when you really do LIKE the post while if something is important yet a terrible news you can use the "Upvote" instead?

Good clarification and suggestion. I'll use Like :)
