New board features!

Recommended Posts

MWG suggested a thread to show people how to do things, so here's what I've figured out so far. 

You can "like" posts, in the lower, right-hand corner of the posts. When you like someone's post, their "reputation number" goes up, which can be seen right under our names as a +12, for example. This number goes up every time someone likes one of your posts. 

Want to tell someone something without having to go back and quote their post? Now you can tag people, like this: @Oblong. Just type the @ symbol and then start typing their name. A list will pop up where you can select the name you wish to choose. This will send them a notification that you're talking to them specifically and they're more likely to see the post.

You can hover your mouse over a users name/avatar and it will pop up a list of info on that user, including what thread they're currently viewing, an icon to message them, etc. 

In the upper, right-hand corner of each post is a "share" icon, where you can share posts to twitter and such. 

To see your notifications, such as people tagging you, quoting you, liking your posts, etc., at the top of each page is a bell. If you have notifications there will be a number next to it. You can click the bell to see your notifications. 

That's about all I've found so far. Hope it helps!

Inserting pics from online is done with the 'insert other media' button on the bottom right hand corner.  Pick 'insert image from url' and then copy and paste the url like before and it shows up in the post.

There is a spoiler icon in the tool bar that lets you keep spoilers hidden that have to be clicked to see.  Just highlight your spoiler and click the eye icon in the tool bar.

Also there is a button on the bottom left side of a post that lets you get notified of replies.  The default seems to be off so if you want to be notified that someone replied to something you wrote you can simply turn that on by simply clicking the button.

And I am still double posting like mad.

To insert an image, just right-click an image on the internet, click "copy image url", and then paste it into a reply box. They don't need any coding, it will just automatically show up.

The best new feature is the embedded Tweets.  Just copy/paste the url of the tweet and you get the following:

There is a great new feature that lets you read JBK's posts twice.

:)  I wish I knew how to turn that off!  I keep getting:

 

Sorry, there is a problem

Something went wrong. Please try again.

Error code: EX1048

 

After every post, but then it goes on to post it twice.

Copying and pasting will keep the source code which appears to keep the formatting of the original text.  Like the error code I keep getting...I copied and pasted it and it kept the source code.

Testing something else"74_519455.png74_502748.png

  • SPRING TRAINING: MAR. 16, 1:05 PM ET
  • @ Osceola County Stadium
  • TV: MLBN, MLB.TV

 

That was all done by simply dragging what I wanted in the box.  3 separate grabs there.

@John_Brian_K will it at least let you delete one of the posts? 

It is doubling posting, but I can go back and delete one without deleting the other.  I am almost done posting for now anyway, but when I come back I will delete one of them after I post.  I know it is irritating.

I noticed that while in a thread, a popup will appear if someone replied to the thread while you are viewing it. I really like that.

Andy yeah you can just click and drag just about anything on here minus moving banner type ads and video (at least the few I tried)

Youtube is also handled differently now.  

On the old forum you had to find the code in the url then put it between the tags.  Now you just copy/paste the entire url and it automatically embeds the video.

Not sure what the problem could be and it's odd that you are the only one experiencing this issue. @John_Brian_K Can you let us know what browser your using, including the version?  PC or Mac? Any info that might help would be appreciated...

Any techs out there that might be able to explain any of this?

The old board only let you make a post every 30 seconds.  Is there a feature you can turn on like that?  It would stop his double posting.

True. Even making it 2 seconds would probably prevent it. The old board would also notify you if you accidentally made the same post twice and prevent you from doing it. There may be something like that hidden in all the settings.

Google Chrome is the browser installed in 2014...not sure how to quickly check the version.  PC.  I am on a work network also and have messed with some of my settings on here, but too many to list.

Being able to post faster will help a lot in the game threads though.
