Do you like the new forum?

Well I am pleasantly surprised !

Some of the images in the tread https://forum.arduino.cc/t/share-tips-you-have-come-across/428745 have returned home.

If the web team is responsible, thank you !

Hope all the remaining missing images will find their way home too.

Huh, who knows? They went away for me. Maybe you didn’t have enough faith? :slight_smile:

Actually I think the refresh may not be absolute here. I swear sometimes things refresh and sometimes they come out of cache somewhere. Try not refreshing but clicking on that forum’s link somewhere.

Even after a topic is unpinned, it’s still a topic in that forum category. So they don’t really disappear. They just don’t stick to the top of the topic listings for the category anymore. They are displayed in the normal order.

Unsticking stickies is a great feature. Thanks for pointing that out. Do you also find a way to mark all posts in a category as read?

Sorry but it is not nice, it seems to have been designed by someone who never did much actually answering of questions here.!!! totally agree with statement

Also your “real time showing posts w/o page” is awful :frowning:

This strike-through migration issue appears to have been corrected. The red highlighting is gone.

Is there a way to jump into the middle of a conversation - i.e. like the old ‘pages’ ?
Also when composing a new reply, it hides the previous posts - it used to be convenient to scroll back if you needed to check detail - or cut some bits of the previous text. Now - no can do.

There is a “quick “ vertical navigation bar on the right. (Possibly browser dependent)
Try using the browser back button while you are composing a reply. It preserves the “reply” box and lets you navigate around in the forum.

Not that quick, but if you know the post number, you can add/modify the post number in the address bar; e.g. https://forum.arduino.cc/t/do-you-like-the-new-forum/847695/32 will take you to reply #32 in this thread.

To jump to the beginning of the thread, use the url without a post number, e.g. https://forum.arduino.cc/t/do-you-like-the-new-forum/847695

It works quite easily on a PC, a cell phone might be a bit trickier.

Whilst composing your reply, as I am now, you can scroll back through the topic or even jump to another one, at least his is the case on a PC

Is there any way to shade or colour code the sticky posts at the head of forum category list? Or at least add horizontal demarkation line, like the forum currently does with “last visit”?

It’s just that I find the small grey tacks aren’t enough for my eye to easily differentiate between between the sticky and latest posts in the list.

The sticky are no longer globally sticking - you can unlock them which I think is great as they are Accumulating at the start of the forum when I prefer to see new posts.

Thanks, that’s really improved the readability.

Forbidden words ?

I found this while browsing the “Display” forum and am reminded of a list of forbidden words which, at one time, excluded at least one PCB manufacturer in the old forum. Is this the same thing or is there a special policy for new users ?

(red colouring from me , text could be from the OP - a new user)

a bit above you can read

Btw, I 've tested that TFT LCD with ESP32-CAM (AI Thinker version), The tested sketches were:
1/https://www.xtronical.com/esp32ili9341/
2/ESP32-CAM Auto-Selfie Camera with TFT – Robot Zero OneRobot Zero One
3/
The third link was removed by the policy to newly registered user

(colouring is mine too)

OK. Maybe we find out what the policy is. Number of links from new users or links to specific sites or something else ?

Yep - would be interesting to understand what the automated police thinks is bad…

OK. If Akismet (anti-spam) is removing links / text, it would be good to know what policy lies behind that.

If you notice that it happens, flag the post. I know, extra work for us and the moderators. There was one thread recently where a complete post was hidden because it contained a link to http://www.bdmicro.com/ in the avrdude output.

Akismet needs a bit of potty training :slight_smile:
