    OpenGL Discussion boards upgraded

    Hi all,

    After a few foibles, we have the OpenGL Community Discussion boards upgraded and running smoothly. If any sees anything out of sorts, or has questions or suggestions on improving the boards further, please let us know.

    Enjoy!

    I have tweaked a few things from comments made. The most notable are the forums are now full screen width. If you don't see it, force refresh your cache a few times please.

    The menus at the top are causing problems for some people and we will be updating those shortly too. Keep the comments and suggestions coming. Thanks.

    A small annoyance : the full reply form only show the post selected for reply/quickreply, not the whole conversation.
    For me forum discussions are better flat than hierarchical (as one can edit/deleted redundant posts, contrary to newsgroups/email).

    So now I will have to hit the big "new reply" on top of the discussion...
    Is there a way to put it at the bottom, too ?

    Ok, I've been clicking around some more

    My previous issue that the new posts are not shown inside the forum seems fixed, but now I have the opposite problem

    In the forum overview I see which forums have new posts. Let's say the beginner forum has new posts, I see the yellow icon and the red numbers.

    Now I click on the beginners forum. Inside, I see several threads with new posts. I don't read all of them at this time (or read none at all, doesn't matter), and go back to the forum overview. Then it looks like there are no new posts in the beginner forum (gray icon, no red numbers).

    If I go back inside the beginner forum, the unread posts are still displayed, it's just the overview that doesn't display this information.

    Anyway, it's not very important, just a minor display bug. At least it remembers my unread posts correctly, which is a huge improvement over the old forums

    Overmind, I almost exclusively use the "Active topics", so I bypass any sort of problem with read/unread markers

    When doing quick reply for a post, you can click on the 'Switch to Full Reply Screen' to see what you need. Same as clicking New Reply I believe. I agree though that having only the last post appear is a bit annoying.

    This would be a more significant change in the system, so not sure we will see a solution anytime soon, but I will put in a word to have this improved upon.

    Well it does not help.
    This is not of utmost importance, but an extra button "switch to Full New Reply Screen" would be great

    As someone mentioned it elsewhere, apparently the user ranking system is gone ?

    Yes, I looked into the upgrade and apparently the company didn't import, or couldn't import the user ratings. This upgrade from UBB.threads has been far from smooth, so on their behalf, I send you apologies :-(

    Currently waiting to see if they can still get the ratings back.
