@joshl It allows you to minimize the composer window. You can have more than one Composer opened simultaneously and, if you wish, switch between them using these buttons. Finally, if you have any chats open they would pop up there as icons with avatars of your interlocutor, next to that big red circle, too.
@amatczak said in Forums upgraded to NodeBB 1.7.2:
As for the rest of your comments - perhaps NodeBB could add something like “recent” tab in the emoji picker that would behave as you have described, but currently there’s no possibility to implement this on Opera forums since we use whatever NodeBB is providing for emojis.
I see the few most basic two-character combinations working, so it's o'k.
For now the only thing is as soon as I type the initial colon, a freaking list opens to obstruct my further view. The popping up list doesn't break the typing flow though, which is good; then I remember there was an option to discard this list popping, however I'm not decided yet if I need it or not...
What if such popping up could be made available to turn on/off on the spot?
Or if --- can one use their Esc key?:) Checking: yep, one can!:D
One thing though: do we always need a preceding space or another isolation method for the smilie to work?
Checking: . , -.
Nope. It seems that if don't hit Esc, the smilie works; but if I do, for whateve reason it doesn't. Well, nope, not exactly - not necessarily... I can't get it...
Can it be that only two-character smilies won't work without isolation?
Checking something: ...um, the two-character smilies don't seem to appear on the list... ???
@amatczak said in New Opera Forums launched:
@zalex108 One easy way I can think of would be using a sticky post in each category - huge advantage is that it does not require any Forums code modifications (we currently don't have time for it, unfortunately). Downside - it's definitely less visible. But it's something
Remaining issue would be to have the message translated in each of the Local forums language.
I can help you with that.
Something most crucial or important getting indexed in Google and such, or/and shared on appropriate pages on Facebook and such.
There could be a statistics page placed BEFORE a user chooses their language forum, showing how many whatnots blah-blah-blah in various language sections in comparison. Or not. I mean not to bother everybody, one could skip it or we just have it somewhere in the navigation, like a beautiful button. Or a monthly e-mail digest having it.
Anyway, in my humble opinion, if someone can access the Internet, let alone OperaForums, they must understand themselves that knowing English is a worthy idea
So disregard my suggestions
i think they can fix this mess by dumping all threads about the vpn problems into one thread and putting up a banner asking members to post their vpn issue there instead of creating a new thread.
i agree with the one poster why the text box on the right when you're creating a post. not needed.
Each global problem has to be address as a Pinned Topic.
This is the right management - despite any opinion or "experience" -.
Users has to be educated if they are not, ten first users will learn the right way if they are "corrected", then, some of those 10 users will educate the new ones, those "second" new users will do the same, etc...
At the end of a month +/-, good practices will be learned by all.
If not, you have the chaos that currently is the Opera's Forum.
The current behaviour is a waste time, unnecessary clicks, search, typings, space...
Also, it gives a very bad image.
As far as it's possible, similar topics may be being merged. Lots of them about VPN issues were already merged into a single topics/plataforms.
The Official explanation is not Pinned as a global topic explanation, and the same question/problem is asked/reported every day and every time in many different topics.
As I've said, it quite easy to undestand.
@jamiekitson-0 said in Receiving digest emails even not being a forum member:
... All of this seems morally and legally dubious.
Or maybe it was just a simple coding oversight somewhere when Opera adopted their new forum format... ?
Hi. Sorry about that. The problem comes from the fact that we had to change cookie domain for security reasons - which means that for some users you need to delete old cookie otherwise it will keep interfering (your browser will keep sending it along with the new one).
Clearing cookies (all or just for opera.com domain) is the correct solution for now. But I will deploy a fix today that should solve this permanently for all - the downside being that it will log everyone out of the Forums.
Sorry again for all the inconvenience caused!
Permanent fix deployed. Please let me know if you still experience any problems! (The fix causes everyone to be logged out of the forums - that's expected and cannot be worked around).
OK, I've found the cause.
Adblock Plus is stopping that thread loading on Firefox.
If I disable it it's fine.
Strange as I have Adblock installed on Opera 36 as well on the XP side of my machine, and there it loads fine with Adbock enabled!
