Recommended Posts

Let's help each other out and post tips here regarding the new layout and how to make it an enjoyable experience.  There are other threads for forum issues, so let's keep this one positive with useful helpful info.

To make a personal stream so you can see what you want to,  go to;

My Activity Stream,

Create New Stream (at the bottom)

Select what you want to appear in the stream,

Then give it a title, then Save changes

This new stream can now be found in My Activity Stream and you just choose it and the forum will appear as you have chosen.

Lots of pros and cons to members seeing who gave whom Likes. One of the pros in being able to see who is giving Likes is that it leads to a more interesting and vibrant forum. One con to pub

yes...keep the 'likes' anonymous.... helps to stop the formation of the dreaded 'cliques' and please...no sad face emoji. Simple is good.

Happy New Year , dukey!

We also have the option to drag photos into posts as well as choosing them. I've used it and it works.

Also, at the bottom of the below image you can see a switch where you have the option to be notified of responses.

To Insert a Photo between Text.

Upload the photo.

Then look for the cross on the left of the photo.

Place the cursor where you want the photo to appear between text.

Then click the cross and the photo will appear in the chosen location.

Hi Kahuna, go up to the upper right of the page just above the search box. You wlll see your forum name. Click on the little triangle on the right side to open up the menu. Then click on "Profile". You will see an option for "Cover Photo", which is where you can upload a different photo.

 

For changing the signature - Ladyboy Whorshpping Dick-Sucker is all there, the text is "wrapped", but if you wish to shorten it, you can do so from the same section.

Edit Profile screen capture:

I managed the photo change but my signature changed all by itself...There is magic in the air....

I better be happy with my new round photo cause I don't think I can repeat whatever I did...

Many thanks RX.........

For anyone who may be experiencing a blue coloured forum instead of the old yellow, there is an option at the bottom on the main page called Theme, and choose Ladyboyreview (default) to get the traditional, familiar yellow background.

While View New Content has been covered before(it is at the top right in these two screen shots), no harm posting it here also so that all the useful info regarding having the forum tuned to the way you prefer it is in one thread.  Also note how you can click on the two options below Sorting to have the New Content appear in either one of two different formats.

not figured out why they are different yet mind

I'm pretty sure threads with "stars" indicate they are threads in which you have commented and/or are following.

To See All the Posts in a Thread Since the Last Time You Read it:

Just click the Yellow ball or star.(not figured out why they are different yet mind).

 

 

Think the star might be on threads started before the upgrade and the circle for threads started after the upgrade.

If the star or circle is filled might have to do if it's a hot topic, one with lots of relies and in a subform where "hot topic" is enabled.  Or maybe it has to do with comments or if it's followed.  I'm still trying to get te hang of all the little details. It's a learning curve.

This is really nice. Much better than hitting the Quote button and then having to delete the portions you don't want.

Facebook Videos.

Besides uploading Youtube videos, you can now upload Facebook videos, as long as they are Public.  If the video has a globe/circle at the top it is Public.  Then just right click over the video to get the Url.  Copy the Url and just past it here.

I like this new feature of highlighting what you want to quote and only including what you want to reply to. I hope forum posters understand this because it annoys me a wee bit when someone quotes a post and they include ALL of the photos from the original post they are replying to. Unless of course they wish to point something out in a particular photo(s). Anyway, that's my gripe for the day.
