Missing Features & Content, Formatting Issue

Question

Posted (edited)

*Transparency in PNG avatars (like ours) is not supported.

 

*I can't find a way to pull up a list of how many times users have posted in a given thread, which used to be what a thread's post count linked to. There aren't too many practical purposes to that information, but at the very least, it makes playing "First One to Reach 1,000 posts wins!" much less convenient.

 

*The Off-topic board is missing from "Your Deleted Posts". That could have been intentional, but I was reading it sometimes.

 

*Profiles don't list average posts per day. (We were using that as an aid to regulating our activity level and keeping the forum from consuming our life.)

 

*Other users' linked accounts aren't listed anywhere -- not by posts, not in profiles, not in member search results. How are we supposed to know who is in which system?

 

*Number of threads started by a user isn't listed anywhere either, and used to appear in all those same places.

 

*When pasting in a post composed in a word processor, double hard returns are converted to single hard returns, damaging paragraph formatting.

 

*There's no option to jump to a particular page of a thread from search results, only to the first post or the first unread post.

Got transparent PNGs now; apparently and Off-Topic is visible again under Your Deleted Posts.  The latter was just a slip up in the permissions.

To get to number of threads, you need to first click on your name in the top right and select Profile:

From there, clock on "See My Activity":

And look for "Topics" in the side area:

The same goes for other members, when you click "See their activity"

Could you post an example?  Does it happen if you paste without formatting?

Could you post a screenshot?

That isn't a feature I knew that MyBB did; let me see what I can find out.

Let me look into this.

For jumping to a particular page number, it's not readily apparent (was it ever?), but you can do it by clicking on the "Page # of ##" and typing the number of page you wanted. https://community.tulpa.info/topic/7356-game-last-one-to-post-wins/ The page numbers "1 2 3 4 5 6 Next >>    Page 1 of 2213", click on the page 1 of part.

That was a feature we discovered pretty recently on the original forum. Before clicking on the thread, you can click on I believe the number of replies to get a list of how many posts were by which user, or something along those lines.

on LOTPW, lumi talked about resetting/reuploading the signatures to try and see if they could work on the new theme, back before that issue was fixed. so it wouldn't be too silly to assume the avatar was reset too.

i'm pretty sure you changed your avatar in the past week.

the only other person i could find with this issue is a new (created on wednesday i think) account.

so i assume it must be a problem with avatars that have been uploaded using the new forum software. that's what the pattern suggests, anyway.


Aubrey speaks like this and Shield speaks like this. (at least most of the time)

Uh, I just noticed our avatars are gone. Only the two (mine and Reisen's) that were changed post-migration. Just now I re-uploaded Reisen's (still broken), but not mine, in case that matters for bugchecking

 

Edit: Oh, our cover photos are all gone too, all 5

My system's pics are all gone, and so is Someone's. I know Someone changed their pfp recently and we swapped all of our old Christmas pics with our regular ones. I believe uploading new images to the new forums is a good theory.

Don't try to change your avatar, just hang tight we'll see what we can do

 

also can people please create a new thread for each individual issue? It's easier for us to track it thank you

Avatars should be fixed now.  I had a rule to convert the URL into lowercase (which was required to get links like "" in MyBB to redirect correctly), but since the URLs to the avatars are hashed and case sensitive.... you can figure how that was going to go.  So I changed:

        RewriteMap lowercase int:tolower
        RewriteCond $1 [A-Z]
        RewriteRule ^/?(.*)$ /${lowercase:$1} [R=301]

To:

        RewriteMap lowercase int:tolower
        RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} "^[fF]orum|[uU]ser|[tT]hread"
        RewriteCond $1 [A-Z]
        RewriteRule ^/?(.*)$ /${lowercase:$1} [R=301]

In order to see your avatars again you'll have to clear your cache, as it's a 301 redirect.  In Chrome this is usually as simple as holding the shift key and clicking on refresh.
