Sorry to appear dim, but how do I find threads I have started please?

 

Close to the top there is a search box, below that is an advanced search... you can seach username and change the dropdown box to "threads started by"


If in doubt, contact a qualified insured legal professional (or my wife... she knows EVERYTHING)

 

Or send a cheque or postal order payable to Reclaim the Right Ltd.

to

923 Finchley Road London NW11 7PE

 

 

Click here if you fancy an email address that shows you mean business! (only £6 and that will really help CAG)

 

If you can't donate, please use the Internet Search boxes on the CAG pages - these will generate a small but regular income for the site

actually, the "advanced search" is a bit fuzzy.... there is a line at the top

Warning : fetch_template() calls should be replaced by the vB_Template class in [path]/includes/functions.php on line 3895

 

so maybe webby is on that bit right now :p

Really could do with the "new posts" button back at the top.

 

This has been requested Bookie ;)

 

Sorry to appear dim, but how do I find threads I have started please?

 

Right at the top you will see your username then Notifications then profile then settings click on the settings you can access your subscribed threads from there :)


Any typos spelling mistakes are due to leprechauns in my keyboard they move the letters around sometimes (amended just for Bookie)

Well, something that is a little bit of a bug maybe :p Someone has repped me on this thread (in the Bear Garden) and given me my 11th blob :D

 

Accessing subbed threads is easy as saintly_1 said, however accessing threads you have started I can't find at the moment, although you used to be able to do it through advanced search and through your profile.

The thread titles should be in black, not the less important things like the name of the poster, the icon showing that you have posted in that thread is too small, the number of views and replies box is too busy the 2 columns with number in each was better.

The text colour bar is very amateur looking, the "Cagger since" info is out of line.

Colour scheme is annoying and hard on the eyes like the two bluey grey bars together Sorry CAG I still love you all but it is just awful

Woah, not happy with this at all. It looks smarter, that's the only plus. It does look much more generic now though as well which is not good.

 

Perhaps considering it's 'our forum too' as someone stated earlier, it might have been nice to have been given a little heads up about such a massive change, along with a quick guide for how to get essentials like usercp up and running again?

 

My OH used to design websites for a living, and before anything went live he'd check things were accessible and it was easy to navigate, and also let a selection of people test it to make sure he'd not missed anything - was anything like this done at all as it doesn't appear to have been?

 

Also, having a load of ads come up first when you do a search is terrible. Why is it not an 'in site' search rather than allowing ads on? It simply looks like a Google search - I wasn't sure it was CAG results initially due to the layout of it.

 

Yes we'll probably get used to it quickly enough. Doesn't mean it's better though...

Things are still being implemented. Work is going on with the search and advanced search as I've noticed differences today. I agree 100% that they should've made a test server, maybe hosted it one of of the other domains that CAG owns to figure out all the tweaks, however everyone has their own way of doing things.

 

I think "UserCP" is better named "settings" for new people... not everyone instinctively knows the CP is control panel. I like that we can now embed youtube vids to our posts rather than posting a link to youtube and people having to navigate away. still a lot of work for webby to do tho!

Please bring back the button at the top with NEW POSTS so that I can find them. Why has it all been changed? I can't cope with all this, I like my familiarity lol

As Phoenix11 noted, the date/time stamp is missing from individual posts. I tended to use that when I came back into a busy thread after a few days off (scroll back through the pages to the date I was last on CAG).

Is it just me that sees the date and time? Grey bar above the post, far left?

I see it but then I see a lot of things :D

Maybe not just you, but I certainly can't. When you say grey bar are you referring to that dark metallic blue/grey bar up there ^ ? All I have in my view of your post is #67.

(And just for reference the side panel there

 

Noting the comments from pinkduchess and babybear39 as I was replying, I guess it is a post count or reputation related thing then?

Nope - all I can see in the grey bar is the post number - eg #69 on the right.

 

At the very top of the page I cannot see the menu bar that I think begins with Library?

 

I can see a bit of that button, Reviews/ Wiki/ CAG webmail - so maybe it's not set to work with older machines?

 

And no - I'm not changing my browser or monitor settings as they're running at the best settings that work for everything else.

 

 

Also, in Quick Reply there's no option to format anything such as bold or underline.

 

And - have just seen something about adding youtube into a post rather than a link - this will be horrendous - won't be able to view pages with youtube vids in them.

I'd still like an easier way than going down to the bottom of the index page to mark the site read. I enter CAG via the new posts bookmark so I don't see the index page unless I load it manually.

The above post constitutes my personal opinion on the facts in the post compared with my personal knowledge of the applicable legislation. I make no guarantees of its legal accuracy. If you are in doubt seek advice of a legal professional specialising in the area concerned.
