    Ah, fresh meat - I see you've yet to develop a searing contempt for end users :D.

    Obviously talking about me here... although I do seem to break everything I touch.

    I'm guessing you've got feedback :)
    of course... :worried:. There's only been 1 or 2 annoying users.

    I'm sure this has been asked already but on the breadcrumbs at the top of the forum, is there any chance we can take Home off of there so that Forums is the first level?
    I keep accidentally clicking Home and get taken back to the main Bit-Tech site rather than the main forum screen.

    So instead of:
    Home>Forums>bit-tech.net>Feedback & Suggestions
    It'd be
    Forums>bit-tech.net>Feedback & Suggestions


    Also, I don't know if it's been said but the 'More Options' button below the quick reply box seems to break quite frequently?
    Edit: It seems to break when I add links to the post.

    I literally just found out how to do this. It'll be brought up in the meeting Monday and if i get given to go ahead it'll be done ASAP.
    spooky behaviour, I'll look into it.

    Nice to see someone ran a script that conveted all our old [ youtube ] embeds into shiny new [ media ] ones.

    Here's the error that comes up on Chrome when I click the button:
    [​IMG]

    Edit:
    Just did a quick bit of testing and it seems to only be when I copy and paste a link.
    Typing a url manually or using the link button on the text editor seems to allow the More Options button to function properly.

    Hopefully that'll help narrow down what the conflict could be.

    We're just edumicating him on what real end users are like, in preparation for his next job in industry. It's a noble service we offer...


    I was going to lament the missing '+ quote' button (that allows you to tag multiple posts to quote & reply to), but I've discovered that clicking on one reply link quotes that post, but if you keep clicking on others, it adds them to the existing quoted posts on the reply box. Perhaps no quite as intuitive, but still very useful.

    You guys are timid kittens compared to some of the users I've had to support (although admittedly I was a tester then rather than a developer).

    The front page login isn't working for me, also says it isn't secure when the login box pops up, see image: [​IMG]

    Well the not secure thing was me not using the https address, login button still doesn't work though.

    Like the dark theme, any chance of a narrow version ! Always someone wants something more :)

    This so due to the captcha sometimes not loading and we are constantly looking into it

    This will be done after I feel the wide version is perfect so it will simply be a case of me changing one variable instead of going though and making the same changes in multiple locations. My guess is by Wednesday.
