Scott Greczkowski, are the "@" links working? I try to pick from the list, but the post still has the "@" before the name and no link.

Edit: Sure, of course it works for User #1! ;) I guess it didn't like the "@" next to the "]", so I fixed it in Post.

I've got a question about the "Mark Forums Read". I use this feature on a couple of forums. I've always wondered, does it mark the forums read at the time you click it, or at the time you opened the forums?

I mean, if you open SatGuys and read the forums for 20 minutes, then click on "Mark Forums Read", does it mark all the new posts which have come on in the 20 minutes since you opened the website? Or, will those posts be shown as new posts the next time you open the site?

I think it's the same as the previous Xenforo, namely it marks the posts read when you opened that forum. So if you mark forum read and other posts have come in, they will still show up as unread.

Every once in a while, when I click on something, for a split second, I get a brief extremely blown up image of my Avatar. What is that all about?

I get that also. I just assumed the software was telling me I had a bloated image of myself. So, I changed my avatar.

Actually, a couple of times after that happened I would just get a solid blue screen. Reload and everything is fine.

I'm on Win10 using Firefox 70.0.1

It's been a long time since I've cleared cache and cookies on here. Might be left over from the old version

I've noticed that too.

Reloading it doesn't get rid of the solid blue for me. I did find the posts way way down below the solid blue, though. I think that's a clue.

I just wanted to post my 2 cents. I don't like that i have to drop down to see the likes and number of posts that a user made. It was always visible on the left side of a persons post. Is there a setting to default to always see that.

I guess it will take some time to get used to the new system... I think the previous format was less busy looking and easier on the eyes, hopefully there will be future options to customize.

Go to your preferences and select 'Show postbit by default' in the Style Options section.

I don't know if this is easily done, but why is the "Gift" link right between the "Like" and "Quote" links? It's too easy to accidentally press or click on. Maybe if it was over by the User's avatar, where it seems more appropriate. Otherwise, it seems like I'm paying people for their posts.
