Maybe you edited one of your posts without completing the 'Why are you editing this post?' box ;D

I'm increasingly unhappy with the search engine, which worked well before.

But many years ago it was extremely crappy, and it seems with the update we are back to square one.. :-\

Hi all. I'm having a holiday in fairly remote parts of New Zealand. Internet access is patchy, but I am able to catch up on issues today.

I have fixed the poll issues for subscribers, and I have gone through all subscriber permissions to see if I have missed anything. I think it's all ok now. My sincere (and humble) apologies.

The search issue is far more perplexing. I have asked the experts on the SMF support forum and they haven't come up with any solutions. I suspect there is some legacy setting from the old forum that is interfering. I shall continue to investigate.

Cheers
Rob

Am I right in thinking that you can't post an image if you do a 'Quick reply' or a reply using the 'quote' feature?

Quote from: absolutelybaching on December 28, 2022, 03:49:44 AMCorrect. Not unless the image is hosted on a third-party site of some sort (say, Amazon etc) and you know its url. Then you can paste in the URL and enclose it manually with img and /img tags in square brackets. Or you can click the 'insert image' button in Quick Reply, and paste the URL into the resulting pop-up, at which point it will be wrapped in the appropriate img and /img tags automatically.

The same is true if you do a 'Quick Edit' of your own posts: though, in that case, not even the 'insert image' button is available and only manual pasting of a URL and adding the tags will work.

Edited to add: I meant [ img ] and [ /img ] tags, not url and /url ones. Now corrected. Apologies.
Very many thanks. It's a bit of a 'song and dance'!

You can start a "Quick Reply" and then click on "Preview". That will show you how your post looks, and also adds the attachments button if you wish to add anything. Otherwise, skip the "Quick Reply" and just click the "Reply" button for all options.

Why is it like this? I guess "Quick Reply" is exactly that, just a quick reply without fancy additions.

Quote from: absolutelybaching on December 29, 2022, 07:39:30 AMAnother workaround I have used: if you click 'Quote' to reply to someone and then realise you want to upload images and the like. Just click Ctrl+A (to select everything), then Ctrl+C (to copy it all to the the clipboard). Now click the 'Reply' button and type Ctrl+V (paste from clipboard). Now you are doing a full-on reply with image upload capabilities, but quoting text taken from someone else's post.

I think the Preview option that's now been revealed is a lot simpler workaround, but whatever floats your boat (and whatever muscle memory mandates, I guess!)
Thanks v much  :)

Quote from: absolutelybaching on December 29, 2022, 09:08:48 AMIt is annoying to see a name you're trying to avoid popping up in a list of people who have clicked like (probably sarcastically).

Sarcastic liking is a thing?


Florestan

Unless the person who ignores you publicly states it, there is no way to know it. Sending PMs to someone who ignores you is impossible, though, or at least was so on the old version.

The ignore function on this forum is not a full block. It doesn't prevent someone from seeing your posts (heck, ignore doesn't even fully stop you from seeing the posts of the person you have ignored).

On that basis I think it's pretty unlikely that the software would prevent a person from liking posts that they can see. MAYBE it's possible to set it up so that you're never told that they liked your post.

As for the sarcasm bit... that honestly sounds like projection. If you've chosen to ignore someone, it doesn't follow at all that they feel negatively about you the same way that you feel about them.

The case AB describes is almost more like stalking, if true. If the person does know AB blocks them, and the person is desperately trying to get AB's attention at every turn, and their intentions are doing so are malicious (i.e. they are not trying to apologize or make friends), that does not sound like a problem for software. That sounds like a problem for moderators.

Personally I had never conceived of the idea that anyone might "like" a post sarcastically!

Quote from: absolutelybaching on December 29, 2022, 09:08:48 AMFeature Request (or maybe it already exists but I'm not sure where it is if so): if you put someone on your ignore list, can you please prevent them from liking your posts?

Sorry, that's not what the Ignore function does. It simply hides the messages of a member you don't wish to see. In your Profile, under Look and Layout, you can choose to hide the posts of ignored members as well. 

Ignore a member does not affect them, only what you see.

Is there a way to set it so that if you ignote someone, their quoted posts are also invisible to you? I know other forums offer this. Also, it makes sense that if you are ignoring someone then you don't want to see their posts if they are quoted by other members, right?

Not sure if others would see a possible gain from this but is there a way to integrate in the profile a button for the posts that you have liked. I am thinking here more of a tracking mechanism for instance if you have liked a particular post by a member that has triggered some interest in a specific recording, for your own's future exploration. Ta.

Nice idea, but there isn't that option in the software.
