New forum up and running!

  • All bookmarks are broken. They just lead to the main forum page. Sad.

    You mean your bookmarks? Well, My Opera no longer exists so the options were to redirect to the new forums or just display an "address/page doesn't exist" message.

    I think that the first one was the right choice.

  • I wanted to add, I don't get any formatting tools when I compose posts. I'm not sure if it's because here are no tools, or if Opera 12.16 is incompatible with the Opera forum...
    There are no visual tools (ATM), but you can format manually in markdown.

    They moved all content to the new place, and I think they also should keep a directory of the old data so that they could redirect to it. Not just send all requests to the main page.

  • They moved all content to the new place

    Nope, just part of it.

  • Old links to forum topics broken, and now also I find that I have to log in every time I come here. I accept cookies from opera.com and they are not deleted.

  • The new look is very too extra simple. Its coding ain suitable for Opera Mini 4.5, can't go about all services....

  • Old links to forum topics broken

    I don't think they are broken.I think they just redirected the domain.

    now also I find that I have to log in every time I come here.

    Yep, i think it's happening to everyone. Kinda annoying but i guess i can live with that.

    I seem to be permanently logged in, as I was on the old forum.

  • The arrogance of Opera astounds me. I also lost my Blog and all the images that I had posted, yes I had backups but all the work in formatting and arrangement is now lost. The pitiful support for retrieving content was as good as useless. The guidelines almost non existent and the solutions abysmal I tried downloading in the format given for Wordpress and all I got was text I could have just copied and pasted to a new blog of my choice, which would have been blogger, but after wasting so much time with the totally useless so called support I gave up and started from scratch. After years of convincing others to move to what used to be one of the best browsers, built in mail client and the superb Notes feature, all now gone from the latest version that now resembles a cobbled together copy of Firefox, I nave now got many people asking me what to do about their lost content, I have no solutions for them. I am appalled by the attitude of the once fine folks at Opera and in future will recommend people to avoid it like the plague. You guys really suck.

  • I see that some members have got avatars. How? I don't have any options regarding avatar.

  • They are using Gravatar AFAIK

    You have to register the e-mail you use for your Opera account at http://gravatar.com and add the avatar there.
    (I think that instructions are somewhere in the profile / edit account settings, but I can't find them right now maybe because I already have one.)

  • Sigh

    We have to sign up on a third party service to use avatars?! I hope it's only temporary. The whole forum look and feel unfinished. No BB-code or smilies either. I'm happy I'm not posting on a stone tablet.

  • Only a part of this thread is loading:

    It will only show me the two first posts. But it's supposed to be FIVE posts in that thread.

    And why can I not go directly to the first page of multi-page threads? Clicking a thread will take me to the first unread post. That is usually what I want, but often I want to open the first page to refresh my memory. Maybe there are no new posts, still I can't avoid being taken to the latest post.

    A feature that takes us to the first unread post is needed, but it is not the only need. The forum software seems to be at an Alpha stage, and I'm impatient to see it develop. The old forum closed too early.

  • I've just found the same problem on the Forum Feedback section.
    Several threads say they have new entries, but when I look, they're not there!
    I've really tried to get used to this new forum, but I'm afraid that having to manually put code into posts to get back some basic forum post display options is just a nonsense.
    How are people who aren't computer code savvy supposed to do that?
    As I said in the other forum, whatever happened to the WYSIWYG principle? It certainly doesn't apply here!
    I hate to think what people who use other online forums must think now when they come here.

    Maybe there were new posts but these were detected as spam and deleted. I think that also happened in the old forums.

  • And I want a button "First unread post"!

  • If you click on the thread title it should go to the first unread post.
    ๐Ÿ™‚

  • I've already got that.

    But now I want a button "new replies for my topics" (meaning where I've got participation).
