Nice Upgrade to the site Wednesday Afternoon - Page 2

post #21 of 37

Looking forward to the upgrades!  It'll be great not having to resize pictures, thanks to all involved!

Thanks Jeff,

When that "Threads started by X user" happens, can someone post where it is. I'm assuming it'll be in our profiles where it used to be, but I checked there. It just might not be there yet.

 

Thanks,

Bear

Not sure how it's gonna work here, but on other forums it will say "Thread Starter" underneath the username on each post they make in the thread.

Thats where you'll find it

Another cool thing you'll now find is that in a thread next to a poster's name there is a blue arrow if you click on that it will show some options such as going to their profile, send them a PM, view posts, subscribe to that user, ignore that user

In most vBulletin forums, you find threads created in the user stats on that user's profile page.   This is similar, because you'll find the threads created by a user on their profile page. 

 

That said, there are plugins for vBulletin that can give some or all users special little functions, and I'm assuming that's what you're referring to.  :)

Thanks Piney, Jeff, and all others involved in getting the "Posts started by" page!

 

I knew you'd come through!!!     

 

Piney,

Did you have to tell everybody where the "ignore" button is?

Now I'll be talking to myself !!!!!!

I used "TinyURL", until this platform changed. Since that I just use the "insert image" in this box.

Pardon a newbie question. I have yet to post a pic, and look forward to it. Some other forums in which I participate only allow pics to be posted as a link to another site where the pic is actually stored. That may save storage costs, but can cause a problem if at some later date the pic is no longer there for some reason. Am I correct to interpret what I'm reading here that this used to be, but is no longer, the case here at SMF? It sounds like we can post a pic just by uploading it. If so, that's a great feature.

 

I'd like to reiterate that as a newbie, both to the site and the world of smoking, I've found so much of value here that it's hard to find a reason to post! And if the site is keeping pics so that old posts retain their value, all the better. Great site and great participants!

OK, I see how it's working now here.  I like it but I still want to know *when* the thread was started not just when the last post was made.  Also, yeah, I'm sure that it's some little plugin that I'm talking about.  Below is an example:

Every time OP posts in a thread that he/she created it will say "Thread Starter" in the ID field.  This is useful when many people respond and the thread gets crazy-long so you can remember who asked the question or whatever in the first place.

You are correct, sir (or madam)!  Plus, the new feature is that they will be automatically resized so people won't have to wait all day for the page to load when idiots like me upload 10MP photos.

Ohhhhhh, I see what you're saying--I wasn't clear.  You're saying that throughout a thread, you can see on individual posts who started THAT thread.  That is cool!  I haven't seen that before, but it's a very cool feature.

Yepper, just upload it right from your hard drive or SD card, especially now with the auto resizing feature!  Can't get any easier than that to post up some Qview!

That was the first video ever played on MTV. The Buggles not Jimmy Dorsey. Oh the memories.

Great job Jeff and crew!

Thread Starter 

We should have a link at the top navigation bar within a few days that link to the chat that we have now. I have some pretty trustworthy intel that the engineers are working on an integrated chat option for us. I for one am very interested to see what they come up with.
