Upgraded hyperlinks are my favorite feature in this update besides top posters coming back! Congrats to the staff for the amazing work

The Forum navigation link below the quick reply box is gone! Now it's only at the top of the page and it's white and smaller (cool, but it was handy at the bottom, even more than the one on top).

Talking about mobile view btw. Using the quick jump is slower specially on slower phones.

For clarity, in this thread I miss a quick link to Announcements sub forum, right below this text box where I'm replying.

If it's intentional, I don't like it. :) otherwise everything seems fine.

Nevermind, I can see the postcount if I hover over my name in the thread, I just wasnt seeing it when going to my actual profile.

On iOS (iPhone SE), when I open the sidebar to switch theme and I try to tap on the button it keeps bringing up Safari’s navigation bar and scrolling to reveal it again doesn’t work as it just goes away again, hopefully it’s an easy fix.

Great update besides that!

great update, thanks to everyone involved.

are covers gone?

i like hyperlinks but i wish they were optional, sometimes you just want to post a bunch of plain links in one place.

Yeah, the forum links at the bottom of threads are gone now. Please don't say it's intentional.

EDIT: Nevermind about the font size complaint. The problem was with one of my FireFox add-ons.

Ungh, why was the navigation bar at the bottom of threads removed? Now I have to scroll all the way to the top to go back to the forum I was browsing.

Wait did you... remove the "back to [forum]" links at the bottom of pages? Literally the only non-top-of-phone navigation option that existed on mobile? Instead of adding more links there it's GONE?

I'm going to assume this is just an oversight since the alternative would be completely insane. Hope y'all prioritize that bugfix, I use those links all day every day.

We have no plans to implement those. The references are there because it's part of the core software -- we'll erase those mentions when we get the chance.
Great, thanks! I was wondering what was this "Reaction score" number under the Profile section:



This is with Safari on iOS. It would be great to have back the total number of posts of the account instead of the Reaction score (like it was before).

Not a lot that I am going to use, though the hyperlink previews and top posters are nice.

The features I had hoped for were the return of re-collapsable quote boxes and proper image resizing inside said quote boxes. I don't know if this is possible with the current forum software, though. 24-hour timestamps are also still on my wishlist, as is the option to disable that annoying draft feature.

I do appreciate the spoiler button finally being directly accessible in the message editor.

What a fantastic update; Social Media sharing will get lots of use and the hyperlink preview is really slick.
Well done everyone!

Clicking anywhere in the thread box navigates to the thread now? I keep unintentionally navigating to random threads now lol.
