Also, is anyone else experiencing being directed to an empty page when logging in? Only time it doesn't do this is on the home page.
Yeah, I get that too. Would be nicer to be returned to the page from where you logged in.

Custom buttons created with Ultimate Menu are not visible in mobile mode.

I noticed one more thing, the strikethrough text in this migrated message isn't showing up (leaving bullet points of just 'won't implement'):

(The original is on archive.org.)

ElkArte says I have 1 unread PM.

My Inbox says I don't.
It sounds similar to the problem I've having with PMs – I can't see the last few messages I received.

Looking more closely, it says I have 586 messages, but it is displaying 309 messages in my inbox (12 pages of 25 plus a page of 9) and 358 in my sent folder (25*14+8). Combined, that makes 667 messages. Not sure if it's indicative of anything, but the last two messages on the last page are in the wrong order as well.

Hopefully fixed PM counts, and definitely fixed strikethrough tag conversion.

Ultimate Menu request is in the works.

I might be imagining things but the new forum software feels a lot quicker than the old one.

Also, every time my game gets an update patch, the graphics look better. ;)

Just logged in and seems fixed, cheers kode!

Bug heads up: while searching HA via Google noticed that all 'lofi version' link redirections are broken. Example link. Rather than redirect to the original thread it returns the home page.

Lofi version shouldn't even be coming up in search results. Unless they were only withholding the results because of the previous robots.txt.

E: Lofi links should now permanently redirect. Not much I can do about the start offset into the topics, since lofi links specified relative post indexes, while ElkArte needs absolute post IDs.

The old forums blocked us on very old versions of some of the core software. One reason for the upgrade was to be able to run more modern stuff. So it's probably not just your imagination.

Nice. Pity the page offset can't be converted over, since various results contain page-specific links, but I guess it's the best that can be done.

Anything that can be addressed about findpost? Came across a few URLs (example) that referenced specific post links and was redirected back to the home page.

That would require an addition to the site script, since it doesn't support that on its own.

Making progress on StopForumSpam... unfortunately, it'll be a little longer before it's ready for use in production forums such as this one.

@kode54 do you want to take a look and see if you need to make any sort of modifications to make it work the way your custom SFS did?

Sure. Hopefully sometime a fix will be possible, since for large threads especially it's a bit of a problem as some go on for dozens to even hundreds of pages.

For what it's worth, found that the page start number is the same from the old results:

https://www.hydrogenaud.io/forums/index.php?showtopic=77883&st=2375

And can be used on the new URLs:

https://hydrogenaud.io/index.php/topic,77883.2375.html

Useful for anyone coming across them and wanting to find the same page.

I have fixed both showtopic= plus st=, and also act=findpost. Any others to report?

E: Just fixed searching in forums with subforums, so they always search child forums as well, at least when using the quick search at the top of the page.

Also fixed the spell checker function, which I forgot to install an aspell dictionary for. I also didn't know I needed to totally restart php-fpm after installing said dictionary.

Is there a way to list ALL unread topics since your last visit without having to click "recent unread topics -> all unread topics" every time?
It seems the intended function of "recent unread topics" is to be just that - listing topics that have new posts since your last visit. However, even though I mark all threads as read after looking through the list, the next time I come back it does not list all unread topics.

Hmm, st= redirects not working on the example link above, but maybe I'm misinterpreting what the fix is.

The auto draft saving feature is useful, is there a limit to the number of drafts, or settings for them?

Limits on how many drafts there are is admin-configurable. The setting for those're also admin-only. No user-accessible settings.

Very slick! Smokin fast, light and usable, doesn't hurt my eyeballs with Silence (Dark) theme and can always make minor theme adjustments via Tampermonkey and uBlock Origin ;)

Minor gripe: on the Change Theme page (found via My Account... Look and Layout... Change Theme button...) there's two redundant theme sections for "Forum or Board Default" and  "ElkArte Default Theme"

The old RSS feeds are gone. There only seems to be one feed for all forums now.

Re: Migrated to a new forum system

Reply #220
As mentioned earlier, the feed is configurable, through the same arguments as the SMF feed. Do I need to add a template bit to inline a feed for just the current subforum or topic on every page of the forum?

Just now it only listed the new posts from the last 8 hours for me, although my last visit was about 24 hours ago.
Weird feature.

Re: Migrated to a new forum system

Reply #222
Not weird when you consider that people have only posted in about 12 topics in the last 24 hours, if that many.

Imho the left column on front page is kinda spammy (user info, whos online, ...), looks better without it.

I don't suppose there is an option/add-in for searching within threads? I just realised I'm missing the search box from the bottom left of every page on the old forums.
