Changes to the forum

  1. Aug 3, 2016 #1
    I don't like the new changes to the forum. For example, you can't tell who replied to a thread, or how many views it has etc unless you're logged in. The thumbs up I don't care for. I'd would rather see who replied and stuff. If it's to make it more mobile friendly so it doesn't take up too much space in your screen then I guess is OK. But for some reason I enjoy knowing who replied to a thread before I click on it.

    Why would you ever be viewing the forum and not be signed in? Just sign in and 'stay signed in'.

    It doesn't show how many replies a post has gotten. Please bring it back :cry:

    I have no idea how this feature could be useful.

    It's not vital, but it was nice to know.. It gave an idea about how long the thread is.

    The replies are shown in the desktop version but not in the mobile version.

    Maybe you should download Tapatalk. It provides most of the notifications and info you need for PF, and a lot of other forums you might use also.

    The link attached is assuming you have an android device of some kind (from screenshot).

    I still need to play with some things. It was broken in mobile around midnight and I needed to get to bed. Hold tight :smile:

    Cool. I was just worried that it'll be a permanent change. Thanks :biggrin:

    It helps to specify what platform you are using when reporting problems :smile:

    I miss the page number list. It has been easier to jump into long running threads.
    E.g. I tested a jump into "Japan Earthquake ...". It led me to the first unread post somewhere in the middle. A little bit inconvenient if you want to know what the actual discussion is about. And as always: "Everything has been better in the old days" or the positive version: "Never change a winning team."

    Clicking the date in the last post column will take you to the last post
     
  20. Aug 3, 2016 #19
    Also how often do you click any page number other than the last?

    I'll keep that in mind :thumbup:
    Ps: I use internet explorer browser in my Windows phone.
