    I'm not seeing the list of members/guest currently viewing a particular thread?
  5. Trying to attach a pic.


    Duh!


    Just realized I'm a new member.

    Perhaps the reason for not being able to post a pic.

    How many posts are necessary to post a pic?

    Sadly, it's not an XF feature. We're working on a script that will show the numbers of 'viewers' in each forum, much like vBulletin, but I'm not sure if we will implement. Still lots of tweaks ahead, but I really need to switch gears and get ready for some shows. The NBAA starts in two weeks, followed FLIBS. It's gonna be a busy month!

    The "go to the first unread post" icon could be a tad larger. It's a sprite so changes are a bit more complex. Probably for the "later" pile, first find out if other icons are also to small.

    That said: In new posts the thread title is also a link to the first unread post.


    @Old Phart Which browser are you using?

    I did that using the "Upload a File" button, OldPhart
  15. Trying as newbie member, again.

    Hmmmm.


    This attempt used Upload a File.

    Guess it's out with the old and in with the new.


    P.S.- The pics show the lack of an option to post the Post. :)

    P.P.S.- The Smiley works.

    P.P.P.S.- Prior attempts using Upload a File requested a URL;

    rather going to the Forum sub on my hard drive, as it did this time.

    We've got some fuzzy avatars or my eyes are blurring from lack of sleep! I set avatar size to 75 pixels on the old vB. XF is set for 96 pixels, therefore your old avatar will be blurry. If you haven't done so already, upload a new avatar at 96 x 96 pixels for best resolution and framing.

    One more thing, I've deselected signatures. Should have done this before going live, but was juggling other things. Like anyone else, I enjoy a humorous signature, but they become redundant in every post. In some cases, they litter a forum. We've all seen it! The big reason for excluding signatures is reduce the incentive for companies to seek opportunity.

    Have to log-off for awhile. Running on empty. No time to eat over the past two days.

    You should get away for a bit. The site is working. Usable. Might it need some tweaks? Of course. But for the most part it's doing all we need.

    Avatars. Just figured out about clicking on the time of post. Thanks.
