After I reply to a post, I can just hit the “back” button in my browser, and it’s smart enough to take me to whatever page I opened that thread from.
Individual threads look really good, clean, low clutter quotient, everything I can think of needing is easily accessible, once you know the layout and tools
It’s a game changer. Saves tons of time you would waste scrolling and reading to find where you left off in a busy thread
Also I LOVE just being able to paste in an image and not having to fumble around with uploading, inserting etc.
I have gotten very used to that over the past 5 years with HelpScout, the support tool we use for CT. Screenshots make things so much easier when trying to answer questions etc.
I just did a massive upload of pics in a thread in Travel, Wine and Restaurants (Dinner at Hayato in Los Angeles - #3 by ToddFrench) and it was so easy. While there’s a limit of 10 at a time I uploaded them all so quickly, they sized perfectly, and it was crazy fast
My list of likes is quite long…some are:
- Instant preview to the right while you type on desktop
- Slider bar (that works on mobile, too, just click the post counter and it pops up)
- SO fast - easy to post/comment and I’m doing much more of it as a result
- The back end is very smart and easy to deal with
- Search is incredibly powerful and customizable
- Ability to mute threads or Categories/Subforums
- Customized notifications
- System takes you automatically to the last post you read, across all devices (which blows my mind)
- Watching someone ‘replying’ while you are replying
I’ll come up with more, that’s off the cuff.
Is there an option you have control over to allow a preview of the actual full screen post, exactly as it will appear?
You asked this before, and I answered before
About as close as you can get it ‘enter fullscreen composer’ for desktop
However, the system has an instant edit function so it’s not really needed to draw up a potential preview first - just quickly edit, live
Pretty sure that’s new posts since your last visit, not how far you scrolled?
Both, actually - if you stop midway through a thread, and later return to it, it will take you to that spot
Awesome old-school emojis!
Thanks to @Ju1ian_Dev1in
And, of course, all the cool stuff Todd listed.
Some of the features really are pretty slick.
how does one mute a thread, and does it mean it doesn’t show up on the landing page at all?
the Bell gives you that option (same for Categories/subforums)
Honestly, play around, you’ll find all kinds of functions. Click stuff, hover-over stuff, see what this site does!
Neal is an originalist. If it wasn’t there on the very first day in 2009…
If I were an originalist, I’d give a damn about what the Founders thought
I like that links open in a new tab.
I LOVE that the back button/swipe right on the linked tab closes that tab and takes me back to where I was. You fixed the single most annoying thing about the old site. Something that made me grin and bear it multiple times a visit. Thank you!
Site doesn’t log me out multiple times per day no matter how many times I clear my cache.
