Like a wider forum format?

Postby Dennis » Sun Nov 06, 2016 10:48 pm

If you liked the wide forum format, try the following:

User Control Panel -> Board Preferences -> Edit Display Options -> Use Maximum width = Yes
(FYI: The User Control Panel is located in the upper right corner by clicking on your login name.)

Great, Thanks!

I did miss the fullscreen width.

I haven't seen any other issues with the software update. Thanks for keeping it up to date.

Dennis, thanks SO much for what you do for the Farmall community! I wouldn't have believed how much I rely on this access to stored information here, and the ability to ask specific questions of the knowledgable members! When it went down :shock: (last year, I think) for a very short time, I became aware that through this network is my ONLY real source for everything Farmall!! Plus, it's just plain FUN!!

Question: in the full screen mode, is the poster member info (eg location, etc) available? That is, without clicking on the poster's name?

When the new format showed up yesterday I tried out the new photo upload. Now you just click on all the photos you want to load at once instead of one at a time and drag them to your post. Then place them in line. Should be less confusing for newbies and much easier for everyone.
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

I'm glad to see more file types included for attachments. Too bad doc and docx aren't.

Thanks for the tip. I do like the new format, but like most geezers it takes me a while to adapt to new things. :|
If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!

Yes and no. The new format is what they call "responsive". It automatically adjusts to the display size (phone/tablet/desktop).

Thanks, Dennis. It does. I'll get used to it. I do have an issue when I click on a topic when there is a new response. It takes me to the beginning of the topic and I have to scroll for the new response. Doesn't automatically take me to new response like it did before

You'll need tiny fingers, but it's the yellow/orange icon is the view first unread post link. I'll see if there is a way to make it a little larger, because even I have difficulty touching it ;)

OK, I've learned something that I did not realized.

You can click/touch the "red" topic icon to take you to the first unread post. This works with all formats (desktop/tablet/phone).

I went with the wide format. But, when I logged in with my "old" iPad, it was too wide. This may be an outdated iOS issue.
