If you're looking for how to filter Unread Content by forum like I was (since it's the main way I use the forum), create a new stream, click on Topics and click the gear next to it. Spend the next five minutes painstakingly clicking the forums you care about, enjoying the fact that every few forums bumps the box you're clicking on down a line so you have to readjust.

As it is a  rage thread:

  • can you revert?
  • at least make an option to switch?
  • give me a LMC for the loss!

But really, i m fine with the progress of things, and to quote my granma 'we ve allways gotten a better replacement, dont we?'

(but then she probably spoke about something else)

There does not appear to be a way to mark the announcement as read. We really don't need it at the top of every page, especially once we have read it once.

Connection problems while posting to create duplicate posts  :mellow:

 

Hopefully this update will be followed by moving the forums to a more reliable host.

the go to first unread post option I miss right away if we can get that back somehow, or it will be fun to click to the last page then back up 6 pages of a thread to find where you left off

Still on the fence but I won't say too much as I know that it takes a lot of work to get it right while customizing.

 

I really liked the old forums, with the click and reveal first and last post.

 

I also liked the look of the old forums much better, felt like it matched Wurm.

 

Those are just weak opinions though nothing important. The one real Issue I see so far is links do not open in a new tab. I prefer saving my spot on the forums and looking at links in another tab :)

Yes, the forum will be re-skinned and themed as soon as our designer gets here.  Today has not gone according to our plans.  So things have not fallen into place.  Please have a little patience... and sunglasses, until we can find the dimmer switch on this thing.
