I just want to say thanks to those who have put time and effort into this upgrade. I've been around computers and stuff long enough to recognize how much work was involved here and I appreciate it.

and I'll just leave this here...

The biggest issue with this upgrade is the loss of the pop-up that alerted us to new pm's, having that box made it impossible to miss pm's (on a laptop), now we must check the tiny bar periodically, unless we activate an email be sent, then you must check your mail :( Other than that one issue, GREAT job :clap:

This. On a desktop browser the new site pushes a notification to the browser title or tab, which is pretty cool.

I forgot the pop-up option even existed. I think I used that for one day on one forum and found it to be really annoying :lol: . If I'm already on the site, it jumps out at me when it says "1 New Message" or now "Private Messages [1]" at the top. And I always use the email notification for PMs. My email is open in the background all day and goes to my phone too, which is much more of an alert than having to visit the site to check for messages.

This new setup is working fine for me on the iPad, haven't checked on the desktop and I don't run this on my phone cuz it would be just too damn small for me to see. Change is good.

This will take a bit of getting used to, but so far I am definitely a fan. I really like the look and feel on mobile!

Would it be possible to put an additional "View New Posts" link in the thread footer? It would save a ton of scrolling if you didn't have to go back to the top of the page.

I just hard-coded a VNP link right below the charts. Still trying to figure out how to get it at the bottom of the page...

Nice work around. Took me a few seconds to find it.

Thanks!

Quick question. When I take a picture on my phone in "portrait" mode (it shows up in my pictures in portrait format just fine), then I upload an attachment to BS, which also shows up as portrait (right side up) when I view the thread on my phone............ Then when I pull up the same thread on my desktop, it flips the picture to landscape. Am I doing something wrong?

I've pretty much stopped using my iPhone for BS, maybe I need to set it up better?

something like this:
