You should be able to save (and rename it) as long as you've made at least one change to the filters, as shown in this screenshot:

You can delete a stream by first clicking on it, and then clicking the small, red trashcan icon to the right of the stream name.

OK, I deleted all the "custom" streams, thanks for that.

 

Now when I click on the default "content I follow" and change the filters, I do not get an option to save it. 

 

I get cancel or create a new one:

Ahh, yes, you cannot override the default activity streams, but you can use them as a default template to create your own.

So I will have the default "content I follow" stream and then I will have a "The Real Content I Follow" stream

 

Sometimes I make myself laugh :rolling:

 

....ah, come on, who doesn't get the "The Real Ghostbusters" cartoon title reference....

I like what I'm seeing so far. One small request, though. Is it possible to add some default space between the end of a post and the beginning of a user's signature? Even with the line separating the two, posts with signatures seem to be crammed together.

 

EDIT: Just noticed that it seems to be that way mainly with posts that are more than just a couple of lines in length, if that's of any help.

I don't see a way to do it, either.  The obvious means would be to click on the time of the last post, which works in other areas of the forum, but that just opens up the conversation without scrolling to a particular post. I looked through the HTML source and there are anchors for each message in the thread, so it'd be trivial to jump to the last post.  I'll add this to my list of things to investigate (as I'm sure other admins have complained about it) and look for a fix.

 

 ..Al

In the list view click on the 'conversation balloons' to go to your last unread post in a thread recent. If you read all posts, the balloons are not visible.

Click on the date below the avatar of the user that posted last, you will go to that post. At least in the theme (dimension) I currently use on my mobile

Is it possible to change a Club from Public to Open?

 

Thank you for all the work!

Thanks, I will have to play with that some more.  :)

Yes, some work needs to be done on the signatures.  I'm probably going to restrict the number of lines to some reasonable number.  I'm not a big fan of signatures, as I don't feel it's necessary to see the same content at the bottom of a user's every post.  Especially when that content ends up getting significantly long.

As long as I can disable them, I am fine with any length. 😀

BTW: Emojis are loading pretty slowly (loading is required, since there are no shortcuts any more). I suppose the speed will improve after the upgrade is finalized?

Personally i have them disabled, imo majority of them bloat the page and hardly useful information

I noticed that in your screenshot, which is very strange and would definitely cause problems. Can you try loading up the forum on another browser to see if the same thing occurs?

 

Thank you,

 

 ..Al

 

I'll try another browser ( chrome ) when I have access to a machine with chrome.  Should be about 4 hours from now.

Yes, you can ignore a specific users' signatures or just disable them all.

I also noticed they load fairly slowly.  I'll have to do some research on them--this set of Emoji is called "Twitter Emoji" so it's possible they are loading from an external server.

Thank you!  I should actually be sleeping by then.  💤

Question:

  1. How can I navigate to my own blog? 
  2. Can I filter for blogs I am following?
  3. All blogs now show some generic, large pictures. What are they useful for?

Somehow I am missing navigation in the blogs.

 

BTW: Links and formatting are broken in the blogs. Still converting?

One more: Can I disable the sound when someone posts to a topic I have open in my browser?

  1. One way is to go to your profile and click on the "Blogs" tab, which will show you links to any of our blogs.  Another is to go the Blogs, click the Filter button and then "My Blogs".  There are probably other ways as well (such as by searching for them, although that probably won't work right now).
     
  2. Yes, you can manage all the content you follow here:  https://atariage.com/forums/followed/  You can get to this link by clicking your username at the top of the page and then "Manage Followed Content".
     
  3. You can upload a photo for your blog to make your blog entries distinctive.  Those graphics are really just placeholders (same with the header graphic in your profile).

My browser sees the page navigation bar as advertising and hides it.  Don't know if there's anything atariage can do.  I've notified the browser developer.

I prefer to have more whitespace than having posts crammed up against one another, but I will be revising the theme over time (more so short-term) to address issues that people bring up.

First up:

I like the new software and I am with you about the whitespace on a PC's browser with a big screen.

 

But the responsive design on my smartphone uses a quite small font and narrow "column width" for the subjects of posts which makes it difficult to spot the subject.

And also there is lots of whitespace which urges me to scroll a lot more than needed (or used to).

Speaking of blogs, will lists in blog entries be automatically updated to the new style or will each blog user need to do that by hand? Also, will [horizontal rule] be changed to a blank line in the forums, blogs and profile pages? Horizontal rule used to make a blank line, but now it makes a horizontal line, like the name says.

Looks absolutely great. I'm sure many things will need tweaking along the way, but my first impressions are very positive. Looks far neater and more polished than the old forum IMHO. Great work.
