Is there any chance the firefox issue with the Zoom Page WE add on will have the font issue fixed? We have to either choose between a giant font size or regular sized fonts but a tiny squished in the middle forum layout for now.

I know not everyone uses firefox or zoom page WE but for some of us with eye issues we need it to see things more easily, would be much appreciated if you could at least look at it.

Still buggy on mobile...

I think the issue would probably be mostly fixed by making the field for replies bigger as of now it starts bugging out as soon I try to navigate or try to add pictures etc.

Very strange behavior tbh.

Also it starts lagging pretty bad.
PlayStation Home ca. 2007 bad.

Does anyone actually allow/use browser notifications for any website? They are the new popup ad.

Please do not enable push notifications by default. And when I dismiss the message trying to get me to enable push notifications, please don't strongly advice me to enable them.

It's fine that it's an option, but please don't force it like this. I get that it's a feature you're enthusiastic about, but not everyone likes notifications. Personally, I hate them with a passion and I'm sure I'm not alone in that.

Why does selecting the don't ask me again not work for push notifications? Turned my PC back on and it popped right back up to ask permission again.

Fix this asap.

I don't know if this is related to the update or what, but I don't seem to be able to update my profile cover image. I keep getting unspecific server errors.

Edit: okay, it seems like new cover images upload despite the server error message, but they don't actually appear until hours later.

can you lower the font weight for bold to about 500?
This, please. It's kinda hard to read.

can we block threads without going into the threads?
Seconding this also. There have been some spoiler threads I would have loved to ignore so I wouldn't accidently click on them.

Two post update complaints:
-The push notification persmission request seems to be cookie-based, cause I had to dismiss it on four separate devices. That's annoying AF
-On macOS, the new* shortcut for strikethru (cmd+S) is also a OS-wide de facto save button, so it overrides the expected browser behavior when text editing is focused

Thank you for the update!

Two minor notes;

- The alignment of the thread icons, view counter, and reply counter reverted to the cluttered and squished together alignment of the early 2.0 Beta.
- I'm personally not a fan of the addition of the ranking arrows to the Trending thread list - I don't feel that information is important or relevant enough to merit the added visual clutter.

Thank you again for all the hard work ~ đź’–

Hi there,

This is unrelated to the latest forum update, but I reported this last time and the issue still persists and would like to bring it up again.

In Safari (mobile), when visiting the forum and clicking on a thread, and then hitting back (after reading), the forum threadlist used to remain exactly the same (without refreshing) as it was when you first came to the threadlist. However, for some reason, hitting back to return to the threadlist started refreshing the page, so some threads I saw when I first visited may have moved onto the second page etc. It's resulted in me keeping the threadlist open and opening each thread in multiple tabs...which I'm not keen on and isn't great for older phones.

Can anything be done to fix this please, so that hitting back doesn't refresh the threadlist?

Say would it be possible to get selective Push Notifications? I enabled them now and realize I don't want them coming in for _every_ thread I watch.

Just tested the notifications with Firefox on a Mac and it all seems to be hunky-dory

So glad Bookmarks are back. So many good threads I see during work that get buried by the time I get home and I can't for the life of me find them again.

Did the styling of bold text change? It looks extremely fat and seems to have some kind of bloom / blur. It's very straining and annoying to read. Please revert this change.

Thanks for the larger font size option on mobile! I don't know when it was added, I just noticed it now.

There's not a way to implement a way to embedd an entire twitter thread instead of doing them in chunks?

My only issue with the rich previews is that they look a bit too much like quoted text. It’s hard to parse what I’m looking at at a glance

Yeah, it seems bold text finally looks bold. Before there was barely a difference between it and regular text - at least if one had text smoothing on.

ResetERA Mobile stopped letting me log in this morning. Every time I attempt to log in on my phone, it says "Cookies are required to use this site. You must accept them." But I checked and from what I can see cookies have been enabled. I've also been fine since yesterday logging in and haven't made any changes to my phone overnight.

I see I'm not the only one. Thanks for pointing out the source of the issue. I use Firefox with the Zoom Page WE add-on and the site looks pretty broken now. Guess I'll use Chrome until we get a fix.

As with any major update, there may be some initial wrinkles, so please report any new or lingering bugs and technical issues in this thread.
Lingering bugs:
* The ad reload pulling focus away from the text edit box is still an issue.
* Heavy script usage is still spiking CPU when pages open (though it seems to be improved).

Is including the title of a PM in the push notification a smart idea? If push notifications were a thing last weekend and I had them on then the PM I received trying to spoil the Game of Thrones finale would've worked. Guess I'll be keeping push notifications off for good.

This was happening before this update, but:

When clicking a thread title to go to the latest unread post, if it's by someone on your ignore list, their post will show up (just with text hidden unless you click it).

Just a small unfortunate bug.

Is there a thread about the ads? I'm getting automatic redirects on mobile (Chrome) on a daily basis now. Only on Era.

will the site ever remember the sidebar setting (open/closed) when starting a new session?

Thank fuck for that font option. Seriously, that's the only feature I've wanted. Specifically for mobile. Thank you =)

Not a bug, but personally I'd like to be able to specify font size per machine. I don't have an issue on my MBA or iPad, but my work laptop and iPhone could benefit from the increase in size.

I have the same problem - on my smartphone "small" is perfect (Oneplus 7 Pro, Chrome), but on the desktop it's a little too small (27 '', 4K, Windows 10, 125% scaling).

If you were able to make the text size setting connection/device specific that would be fantastic.
