Not necessarily a bug, but at the bottom of a topic, there's the quick nav drop down, and top, but not single click way to get back out to the forum you're in. (Equivalent of the "Go" button on the old boards). With quick nav, you actually have to scroll down to get to most topics

Another way of doing it would be to have the topic 'tree' at the bottom of the list of posts as well as the top. Minor stuff really, but I do find it quite useful, if there's an option for that.

Look at me just got here and already complaining :)

I was just about to request the lack of nav drop down at the bottom of a page, but I see it just looks like a button now instead.

Feature question/request: filtering out threads visible threads based on a tag? Basically an "at work" view that makes NSFW threads not show up. I may not even use it, but since we have tags it would be interesting how we could use them.

I'm getting inconsistent marking of threads as read.

It looks like the forum icons wont turn gray until I go back into the forum to see all the threads are gray then go back to the main page...

After some testing it does appear the main page icon for a forum wont turn gray until I am on that forums list of threads having views all threads.

So if I go straight from what was my only unread thread to the main page, that forum (ie the pitstop) stays blue even though all threads have been read.

When typing out the title to a thread, it automatically CamelCases everything. While I can understand that this is to prevent all-caps thread titles... is it really necessary? "GTA V" becomes "Gta v" in this case and it gives me a sad.

If your server is running Windows, I don't know.

If it's Linux, then get a shell prompt as the root user and look for the email address in the maillog:


# grep someone@someplace.ca /var/log/maillog

That will give you something like this:


Jan 9 11:43:15 myhost postfix/pickup[18170]: 6CDABDFB86: uid=530 from=<me2>
Jan 9 11:43:15 myhost postfix/qmgr[2264]: 6CDABDFB86: from=<someone@someplace.ca>, size=461, nrcpt=1 (queue active)
Jan 9 11:43:17 myhost postfix/smtp[19632]: 6CDABDFB86: to=<someone@someplace.ca>, relay=ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.com[192.168.1.27]:25, delay=1.9, delays=0.05/0.15/0.86/0.83, dsn=2.0.0, status=sent (250 2.0.0 OK 1389296597 hj7si6834300qeb.2 - gsmtp)

That big hexadecimal number is a system id for the message being sent. Now look for that in the log to see all entries associated with sending that message:


# grep 6CDABDFB86 /var/log/maillog
Jan 9 11:43:15 myhost postfix/pickup[18170]: 6CDABDFB86: uid=530 from=<me2>

Jan 9 11:43:17 myhost postfix/qmgr[2264]: 6CDABDFB86: removed

You can use sudo instead of being root if you want.

Of course, you can always test the email address by just sending email to the person with your regular mail client and see if they get it.

If you enter s= followed by 32 or more mixed lowercase and digits, the s= and the first 32 of those characters will disappear.

http://gtxforums.net/showthread.php?111-Test-s-followed-by-numbers-deletion

I first noticed this in URLs for web.archive.org.

It makes sense that vB here might want to massage magic cookies out of links pasted into messages, but they appear to do it to all text, too. Which seems wrong.

For web.archive.org links in particular, you can work-around the problem by changing the lowercase s= to an uppercase S=.
