Forums Upgrade

168 posts in this topic

I'm having a few major issues with the site.

 

All forums and sub forums open, but when clicking on any topics, the pages won't load unless I try to force open something like my mail (but my mail won't open. It just forces the thread I'm try to open to load, including this topic).

 

For instance, I can open the Addons and Mods Complete section in Arma 3 without issues, but opening any of the threads (ALiVE, Ravage, etc etc) are having a really hard time. Usually failing.

 

I'm on a fully up to date iPhone 6, and have tried Safari and Dolphin browsers and it's the same deal. 

 

EDIT: This seems to be resolved now.

I'm still holding out for a fixed width theme. Fluid isn't as nice for reading at higher resolutions.

Looks fine to me, what resolution are you using?

2560x1440. Stuff and things look fine, certainly! Stretching a long text over the width of the monitor, however, makes it less pleasant to read than the same text at half the width.

@.kju The forums have been updated now, so the imgur albums should now be properly working(when you use just the URL)

 

Also, everyone, a couple more items are included in the latest forums update:

  • An experimental dark theme has been added(check at the bottom of the page near the "Privacy Policy" and "Contact Us" links.
  • Indication of "Thread Starter" is now displayed.

For my personal opinion, the new "Featured Game" System is anoying too. I was like the Style before. Now it's much more "complicated" and i need more clicks to get to the same Section.

 

Old Style

Complete Forum Overview where i see what's new and where

 

New Style

Non informative "Landing Page" where i need to Pic a Game first or go over "Browse" -> "Forums" but if i do this i don't have the same informations as i was have with the old Forum, but i have already do more clicks.

 

From a usability point of view, this isn't a perfect solution in my personal opinion i don't want to speak for some other people. The way to get informations is longer and i need overall more clicks for less informations. It has a more structured way, but i want the old Style back to be "productive".

I had the exact same reaction. First i thought the forums were just broken, then i figured it out and wanted to yell at someone.

 

In any case, making a forum button that does not bring you to a forum is a great way to keep new people away. :dozingoff:

The small gear icon, top of the page, to the right of your profile image. Look for "account settings".

Seems to me that something changed over the last several days that returns the cookie-related problem of constantly having to re-log in to forums when I switch browsers.  It was ok for months, and now the problem has returned.

 

Seems better since at least yesterday...

I spent a half hour adding new additions (listings) to my post here

https://forums.bistudio.com/forums/topic/165560-ai-compilation-list-of-addonsmodsscripts-misc/?page=5#comment-2829818

saved it and went back to see how it looks, and nothing I added is there, i reedited the post and everything i did never saved! WTF :face_palm:

I tried again, added 2 things, again saved it, went back to see if it showed and nothing.

 

My last update to the thread was in February I had no issues saving then, can you guys look into it.

Thank you!

https://forums.bistudio.com/ landing page left me speechless: What is this supposed to be? I think such things can be done on a shop page, but for forum navigation it is at least very confusing.
