    Fixed. Some of the permissions went a little sideways in the move, I've gone through the entire forum list and checked them now
    Seems to be working here, what's wrong?
    Threads in the archive do get moved to the "Already Imported" forum once they're moved out of the import queue on the new site (provided I remember to run the query that does it). There's no way of marking anything in the "Downloads" section as ported.

    I believe it might also be you with the thread we fucked up and accidentally permanently deleted during importing? Which I still need to try fix.

    I was trying to preview my gameday thread draft to make sure I'd got the BB code right ahead of time and when I clicked Preview nothing happened.

    Just now I previewed my post and it worked. Then I copied the gameday draft into here and tried to preview and it didn't work. I took it out and tried to preview again and now it doesn't work at all even though it's back to how it was when it was working.

    I think the [wtb] BB Code does that for reasons - not sure there's much I can do to fix it.

    When I Quote a post that has been edited, the text that pops into the reply box for the Quote is the original post rather than the edited one.

    Edit: Wait, checking it out again...

    Edit edit: Nevermind, it seemed to be a one-time issue (maybe the person updated their post while I was on the page? I'm guessing editing your post won't make it refresh to whoever's viewing it).

    None - you can't trigger notifications with edits.

    That's good, but also bad. Good that it can't be exploited, or annoying for a regularly edited post with legitimate tags in, but bad because If someone ninja edits their post to include an important tag, it should probably send a notification.

    I'm guessing there's no real way of making it send a notification the first time an edit is made that includes a tag and ignore all the ones after that?

    Oh, makes sense. Sucks though, because that's what I most wanted to preview :psyduck:

    So, what does this board currently use Flash for? I keep getting pop-ups asking if I want to activate it, but there's no ads anymore and YouTube is HTML5-based now, so....

    One more thing! When I clear my messages in the top-right corner, go back to the main page, and try to mouseover it again, it pops up a "security error". Might want to deal with that or at least submit a bug report to the Xenforo guys.

    I can't replicate that? - Clearing my alerts then trying to open them from the front page works fine. :S

    This is in Firefox, where it doesn't auto-reload the page when you hit Back so the button is still red and has the number on it.

    I use Firefox - the alerts bar works fine after a normal page back event. :S

    I guess since I never heard a response, that moving the subforum names to the right to make them more visible isn't an option.

    [​IMG]

    Can we get these outlined, or in a different colour, or at least bold? I have tremendous difficulty reading these (mild dyslexia), whereas I didn't on the old forums because they weren't in tiny letters bunched up with the author, date, etc info.

    Also, I notice that if I post something, then hit New Posts, my post doesn't show up. Sometimes I use the New Post thing to go back to a post I just made to edit in something I forgot.

    Did this ever happen? This would be expected behavior to me.

    I only ever see my threads in new posts when someones replied to it. Sounds normal to me.
