Great job, Soda. Once all the initial glitches are all worked out, this is going to be a really cool board. I already see a lot of new features that I'm going to like a lot. I'm sure the conversion wasn't nearly as seamless as you made it appear, but it looks like it will be worth all of the effort you are putting into it.

Thank you so much, guys! I am trying hard to make this as best as I can! When we got hacked recently, I thought, "I need a board with better security." I got vBulletin as a result, and now I find there are a lot of other things I like about it. While it was indeed a lot of work to do the changeover and there is more work to come, in the end, the hacking was kind of a blessing in disguise. It's given us a better board!

Hopefully the log-in and time issues are the most serious we'll have. I'm glad it appears that re-starting one's computer has worked on those problems (so far)!

Are the options for color posts, bold, and italic somewhere?

Also, how do you get a smiley inside the post? Whenever I click on one it goes up to the title of the thread instead of beside my words.

Trivial, I know. Sorry.

Oops, I read the FAQ on how to get the smiley!

The features you want can be changed using your settings. I admit it's not very clear!

  1. Go to your CP
  2. Select "Edit Options"
  3. Scroll down to "Miscellaneous Options" where you will see "Message Editor Interface."
  4. Using the drop-down menu, select "Enhanced Interface - Full WYSIWYG Editing." (For the curious - WYSIWYG stands for "What You See Is What You Get.")

If you've done all that and still aren't seeing the formatting options, it's a board glitch.

I'll investigate making that the default rather than "Standard."

Edited to Add: This has been changed to be the default, so you don't have to do the whole User CP thing unless you want to change it BACK to the plain standard.

Once you do that, you'll also see the smilies on the side.

The reason that the ones you have selected in the past - the ones at the bottom - always go in the title line are because they are "post icons." They are to indicate whether your thread is something you're mad about, happy about, etc. Certainly, in the absence of the smilies on the right due to your standard text editor, it's understandable you'd get confused by that! So, to make it short and sweet:

Smilies at the bottom are "post icons" that go in the title; smilies on the side are the ones that go into your post.

Default Re: Report Board Glitches and/or Ask about board issues and features

I was asked about e-mail notifications:

You have to go into your CP to get notified of replies; click on "Edit options" and then scroll down to "Default Thread Subscription Mode." There, you can select whether or not you want to receive e-mail notifications when someone posts to a topic.

P.S. I changed the title of the thread to be more clear, since I realize that asking about features might not naturally be seen as a "board glitch."
