New Posting System
« on: September 23, 2014, 07:54:49 AM »

I love it as a theme, but I have discovered that if I type to much, the post button moves off the screen and there's no way to scroll back so that I can actually post. Also, as I was typing this, it crashed my iPad. Not just the browser, my whole iPad powered off. So I might have to switch to the mobile version :P

Do you usually tend to be to-the-point or more long-winded?

This happens to me (on mobile) as well. Not only that, but if I type something more than a few sentences (on a computer), it becomes one run-on line and I can't go back to review what I posted without holding down the arrows on my keyboard for what feels like forever. For example, this post probably won't sound very coherent because it's really hard to go back and edit. The options panel also disappears, so I can't use BBC code without inserting it manually.

The posting system for the new theme doesn't seem to be very effective. Or maybe somethings wrong with my computer or my iPod. Is anyone else experiencing these difficulties? If so, do you agree that it should go back to the old way from back when the forum was Leviathan-themed (not the aesthetics, just the post-typing-box thing or whatever it's called)?

It's the same for me on my mobile device, and it's even more annoying on the computer :P

*raises hand* Yes. This is so very annoying. Especially when trying to make my character cards on a roleplay D:

So I'm not the only one! I keep having to press enter every line or else it wont let me post. Should I email a mod about this?

Also, as I just discovered, the preview function doesn't work .-.

Ummm on Scott's blog I believe he wanted us to email him if we had any problems with the forum, but I'm sure we can go through a mod to do so as well.
The preview function works for me o-o It's the posting button I'm having trouble with. I have to refresh the page while it says it's loading to actual see if it posted or not...if that makes sense.
And there's the problem we were talking about where if you make a new topic, it doesn't show up on the front page. Someone has to reply to it.

Oh yeah, I forgot about emailing Scott. I'll probably email him by tomorrow night, unless one of you wants to do it now?
