It's always done the unread posts thing for me.

And the delete button is still there. To the right of "modify". Its "remove"

Wow! Things look different! You must have been working hard Carl.

I have a few questions though.

First, I clicked the unread posts since last visit tab and I got five pages. I didn't have time to go through them all so I left the site (without signing out) to do something else and when I came back to read and catch up there were only a few posts. I lost all five pages.

Next, when I go through the posts the little quotes and things that people put in their signature almost look like it's part of the post.  It's a little confusing.

Did we lose the delete this post option?  I used to come in and check off all the threads that I knew I didn't want to read to make reading what I did want to more manageable. 

Are there options to change any of this or did I miss it somewhere?

Your delete question was answered, the others are just quirks of the system. You went to all unread, and the system thought you read them.

I see your point with the signatures, but its's just the way they are portrayed in SMF 2.0

@RunAmokSims if you don't want to see the signatures there is a option in the look and layout where you can disable it (hope that sound right lol)

No, I'm not talking about individual posts. I know that's there.  What I'm talking about is when you look at the listing of all the unread topics  there used to be a box on the right edge of the page to check if you wanted to mark the post as read so it would delete from the page listing you were looking at.  That's how I used to manage having several pages of posts to go through.   


I've never had the unread posts disappear before. When I would look at the unread posts since your last visit they would be there till I read them or marked them as read.

There still is that. Bottom right.

Parts in bold. Since your last visit. So if you leave the forum and then come back a little bit later most will be gone.

@Sportsfan

I don't know where you are seeing that. If I open a thread I have a button at the bottom right to mark as unread. What I'm talking about is the boxes to check that used to be down the right side of the whole page of threads.  Each thread had a box and you could check off as many as you want then click mark as read.

It's okay though. I think Carl knows what I'm talking about.

Yeah, I guess this functionality is still there and doesn't require a mod. SMF 2.0 rocks. Control F5 if not working right for you.

In the messages area, there are links that are supposed to take you to the seperate messages. These links don't work. I thought I should just let you know.

Quirks like this will be chalked up to the new interface :( I don't like the way that PMs hop around either but have no way to fix it.

I thought you had made it that members have to make a certain number of posts before they could post a link to a website? I just reported 2 posts from someone who has just registered. Both were just full of gibberish and links.

edit.. they didn't just register, they registered on October 14, but apparently they only started posting today!

Carl was talking about links in signatures. Some people just create an account and put links in signatures without posting anything. They need to have 5 posts before adding anything in their signatures, including links. Registered members still can post and put links, but we can deal with them fast enough. Thanks for reporting those posts, they are gone now :)

Yeah two mum, under 5 posts can't do links in signatures or enter a website in website box.

You and me however, can put as much spam in our siggys as we want.  ;D
