When looking at "new posts" would it be possible to get some info as to which sub-forum the the post is from.

Like here is this For Sale? or ISO?

once you click on it is pretty clear its an ISO, it would just be nice to know that while quick browsing.

Dat must be another desktop only jawn.
Not really. There is a little upward arrow next to the “handle wrote:” in the quote. Tap on that and you should be take to the original post.

I still have not had a chance to look at the site on any device other than my phone, lol. Since my last post in this thread right after the flip (saying I am not liking the looks of it), implemented changes were pretty good and I am more or less used to it. I agree with fin though, things are still a bit large on the phone. Also the chosen font is not really the greatest one out there and is not as easy on the eyes, IMO.

Seems a sensible thing to add. We'll give it a look.

There are a few different fonts we can try. This seemed to be one that most people were happy with though. There were issues with some not showing bold properly.

Curious where the link is to the newest posts on all forum categories. Is that gone?

I still didn’t see bold working when playing with things earlier today. The font is not as pleasant, but probably something one can get used to.

One more thing is I don’t see that was extremely convenient, at least for me, is the link to come back to the “main branch” of the forum, so to speak. For instance, if I view the Esao thread and scroll all the way to the bottom, there is no link to go back to the Art Discussion and instead I have to scroll all the way back up to tap that. I know, I could simply go back and refresh the page, but the previous way was much more convenient, IMO, and should not be that hard to implement. Unless it is there and I am just not seeing it.

And again, the “bigness” of everything. Among other things, the part “Expressobeans < Forum < Art Discussion < etc” would definitely benefit from size reduction.

Overall, good job guys. Greatly appreciated. Will make another donation.

Instagram fudge looks very wrong when embedded, at least on the phone. See my last post in the hockey thread for an example.

Bold isn't incredibly bold. I'll try a different font at some point and see if anyone moans about it. :lol:

The return links at the bottom you're talking about do seem to be there. What're you browsing with? Also there's the return to top arrow which is handy if you do head back up.

The bigness will be addressed. We're hoping someone who knows what they're doing might volunteer to tweak the css. We risk breaking the mobile view while tweaking the desktop one.

Oh.. And I think I've fixed the Instagram. :wink:

Browsing with an iPhone. Unless I am blind, I do not see any return links, except for the one to the main forum. This is what the bottom looks like for me:

I had definitely noticed the arrow because I seem to tap on it every time I want to submit my post, lol.

Props for fixing the instagram fudge.

Glad to hear the bigness issue is to be addressed. Hopefully, someone will volunteer.

Donated and doubled the amount from my previous donation. Keep it up, guys. Funny how this fudge could have been done right to begin with. Alas...

A special mention in regards to this

Can we consolidate all the internal workings of EB threads into one? Should I repost this in "Site move to new servers" and "What on the current EB site needs fixing?" threads as well?

:P

I'll lock the site move thread as that has run its course.
