Upgraded Forum Software To Latest version SMF 2.0 RC2
« on: February 14, 2010, 10:29:30 AM »
Upgraded the software about 1 month ago to latest version. One problem has been that hyperlinked text had dark blue as a default color verus plain text which was black and thus hard to notice is text was link or not.

Just edited the software code to make links dark orange, same as Board titles to keep a common theme. One problem is that all links are now that as no way to just make post links that color as per this info.

Thanks Giovanni I have been manually changing the colors that will make it easier.

Welcome, I noticed you were doing that as had same problem seeing them so I finally went and found where to change it, unfortunately it's global, not just in posts.

A couple buttons/links disappeared as part of this upgrade -- notably the "posts since last visit"...  There is an "unread posts" button but this isn't displaying all the posts that I haven't read (since my last visit)...

How do I get to see all the posts that I'm not seeing when I press this button in one easy click?

Michael, should be more not less features :o.

I can still see that clickable text "Show unread posts since last visit." in the top left corner beside my avatar image . . . can you see it?

Nope... I can't see it.  I created a second signon to test it and the new one CAN see it, but I cannot... I also have tried switching to firefox to no avail.  Browser cache cleared, etc... Here is what I see from this signon (noting that the other signon sees all the good old stuff):

Click on the arrow in the pic, should solve your issue.
Taking an extended leave (until 2015) from the forums to build out my farm and dairy. Please e-mail or PM if you need anything.

Thanx...

Wow, do I feel silly now... :-)  My old eyes couldn't even make that out without a big arrow pointing to it!
