Yes. They are missing on the Core and Babylon theme for me.

Maybe I need to clear my cache?

Did a mod just delete my last post or is the new forum already broken? ???

Don't bump old threads unless you mean to contribute worthwhile posts.
Why must all things be so bright? Why can things not appear only in hues of brown! I am so serious about this! Dull colors are the future! The next generation! I will never accept a world with such bright colors! It is far too childish! I will rage against your cheery palette with my last breath!

oh thank goodness you can change themes! I found the newer one harder to read, it looked good, but it was sorta dull.

I just clicked the link that shows you who is online and I received this message:

"Please try again. If you come back to this error screen, report the error to an administrator."

I got the same message yesterday when I tried clicking on it.

Is there a way to determine if you have a new personal message from the main page on the new theme?  If so, I can't find it.

If there's not I'm probably going to switch back to the old theme.

EDIT:  Nevermind.  Maxi sent me a PM and answered my question.  A [1] shows up next to the 'My Messages' tab.

Oh maaaaan.  The new forum loads 3x as slow on my Edge phone.  Guess its time to upgrade to 3G, its worth it just for faster NWR.

lol classic maxi...

speaking of PM's though, i've got a question:

is there a way to turn off the message that pops up reading "you have one or more new messages. would you like to open them in another window?" cuz i've had this problem for a long time that constantly shows I have 1 new message when i don't, so now everytime i load the forums up i get that pop-up and its kind of annoying.

Click on Profile, go to Modify Profile, click Personal Messaging, and uncheck the "Show a popup when I receive new messages." box.
I'm kind of a snarky bastard.

I have 2 issuses. 1 I'm sure Megabyte can either fix or explain.

1.) When typing up a post, when you use code such as [ url=] it applies it automatically. How do you make it not do that so that you can edit the code you used?


2.) I'm not sure how many people here use Autopager with Firefox, but it doesn't work with NWR 2.0 :(

1.) I don't know what you mean.
2.) This isn't NWR 2.0.  You mean it doesn't work with the new default theme?

1.) I posted in a talkback thread (I'm using core theme if that matters) and I quoted an article, bolded some text and hid the linked to the article in the title while also changing the title size to 3.

It applied the bold automatically in the quick reply window, I never saw the [ b][ /b] tags after I finished typing them.
I put a [ url][ /url] tag in the title to the article, and as soon as I finished typing it, it turned into a link in the reply window. same with changing the size, the [ size][ /size] tags disappeared and the text changed size in the quick reply window.

That is a good feature to have sometimes, since I don't have to waste time with a post preview, but I had made a small error in the [ /url] placement and wanted to change it, but now I'm not sure how since I can't see the forum code i used to do it.

2.) Autopager wasn't working with with the new default nor the core themes. :(
I'm pretty sure that's an problem with AP more than the site itself. I haven't tried changing back to the old theme to see if it still works though.

3.) This isn't NWR 2.0? This was just a cosmetic change? could we change the theme all this time and no one knew?

1.) Click the toggle view button (the mouse cursor with the red brackets).
2.) No idea.
3.) Yeah, you could change the theme, and many did.

Since this has turned into the bitch to MegaByte thread, I have a request.  :P

Is it possible to make hyperlinks more noticeable on the default forum layout?

This is a hyperlink.  This is not.

They look too similar!  The hyperlink text is a slightly different color, but it's not easy to spot.  Could you make hyperlinks underlined or a radically different color or something?
Why must all things be so bright? Why can things not appear only in hues of brown! I am so serious about this! Dull colors are the future! The next generation! I will never accept a world with such bright colors! It is far too childish! I will rage against your cheery palette with my last breath!

I checked to see if I have the power to do that Vudu, and I don't believe I do.

My guess is it may involve just editing the CSS for the them itself, which we may or may not want to do because it could reset every time the forum is upgraded anyway...

That's all speculation though so we'll see if MegaByte has anything else to say.  If we can change it, I suggest #006AA4.
