Forum software just upgraded to Invision Community 4.5.1, might have some bugs


Recommended Posts

Today's changes:

  • Restored the Top of page and Home breadcrumbs to the footer.
  • Restored the Forum Rules link (appears both above and below page content).
  • Reduced the height of the footer.

    2. I also notice there are no spaces between the 'sig' competition entries in the voting/winners sections?
    Wouldn't a one line gap between images be less visually distracting and more attractive?

    ^ Fixed.

    Perhaps the CSS shadow or blur behind the size/downloads text should be removed for readability?

    ^ Done.

    I also suggest removing the gradients and reducing the box shadow on the Blue buttons. I get that you want it to stand out, but It looks old fashion.

    ^ Reduced to barely visible. I tried it without. It looked too flat.

Now might be a good time to ask for a dark theme.

What I have seen over the past few months;

Windows adopted a dark theme

Paint.Net adopted a dark theme

Using Google Chrome UTube just adopted a dark theme this past week

The only time my screen brightens up now is when I open the forum. 

Can the forum software adopt the settings from Windows dark theme or does a whole new Dark Theme need to be created?

Thanks in advance for your attention

No, you can still use Postimage thumbnails. It will just be more work:

 

- Paste in the URL of the thumbnail image

- Add a link to the thumbnail image that points to the full size image

 

 

In the future, I'm sure @Ego Eram Reputo will be nice enough to add a button the editor for automatic Postimage thumbnails. Or better yet, merge all three (Imgur,  NicPic, and Postimage) into one button.

I'm nice enough - am I good enough? From memory the forum allows exactly one piece of data as input. If we combine it might have to be the URL.

This....might be possible. @toe_head2001 found a nice looking one. I'm investigating getting it installed (final decision is not mine).

It happened when the forum was removed from the Forumer platform and moved to Invision. As @toe_head2001said, unrelated.

I've investigated this today. Preliminary results are not good for a Postimage 'quick thumbnail' button. The format of their links are not conducive to merging the image buttons either. Meh. 😒
