Today I clicked on "unread content" and dozens of posts came up as closed.  I scroll down to the bottom and click "load more posts" and even more closed posts come up with an occasional new post.  I read the new post and then at the bottom click to be taken back to the "Topic list" and it takes me to the subforum for the post and not back to the topic list. 

If I use the "Go Back" on my FF browser it takes me back to the list, but to the top of the list.  I then have to scroll down and again click on the "load more posts" icon and then again if I was on the third page.

This upgrade really should have been tested before it was launched.  It seems I am not the only one that is feeling frustrated about the upgrade which seems to be a retro step backwards.  I think that from now on I will bide my time and pop in occasionally to check if there have been any improvements especially regarding been taken to the sub forum or back to top of list!  :classic_angry:

There is currently software running to close old threads from years back.....they will stop shortly and Unread Content will only show new posts.


We could do with some help from you.

Thanks but what about if I read the new post and then at the bottom click to be taken back to the "Topic list" and it takes me to the subforum for the post and not back to the topic list.

all sites are bound to have teething issues, especially when you  upgrade from one platform to another.   You cant make all changes on a test forum and transfer over, as the backends could be different, plus people are still making and replying to posts all the time.  Believe me, been there and done it, many a time. On multi million pound websites.

it may seen straightforward to the layman, but sadly web development is never that straightforward.

For this site, its even more compounded as the old webmaster is sadly no longer with us, so any code he made has to be translated and interpreted by the new one, and if its not optimized code it can be very difficult to work through as the slightest change could impact something totally irrelevant.

Click New Content and although I did the "load more activity" still got loads of "Closed" threads coming up.  I thought this was all finished?  Can't really scroll through pages and pages just to find the odd new post.

The closed threads you can filter,  but  right now there isnt an option to show new threads without showing them. You can show threads you are following without showing the closed ones tho.

Im surprised the script thats closing old threads is taking its time and doesnt auto remove them from the feed.  Most scripts  parse the database for the date, and then enter an entry to it, then simply auto post a reply to it.  Unless of course its a slower database/host and theres thousands of threads to close.  Then it gets backed up /shrug

Thanks but not sure how to filter them out?  I am guessing that others including newbies are coming across the same issue.

Click unread items, then on the top options click items i follow. That filters the feed to only show threads you have posted in or have subscribed to. It doesnt show new threads, but its a start.

Also  click https://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/feed/?action_type=NewTopic

That should list all new topics and get rid of the  locked posts feed.

yes, I think it's very annoying.

I've contacted the plug-in developer and asked about it. He said that he will supply me with some code to speed the process up that he's made no response on the issue of the posts then being marked as unread.

It's an extremely annoying glitch. I'm hoping that the developer will come back to me about that as well.

It's certainly taking an awful long time

I've found a setting to disable the reply – the post which is made informing people that the thread is closed. That's if that makes a difference.

Indeed. It should take a few mins to an hour most to do even the largest of forums.

well we've stopped it for the moment.  We think that it may also have been breaking some historical links

I can't seem to find my old threads. When I click on 'content I started' it loads the first page, but it won't load any more than that. What am I doing wrong?

I've found it now, going through my profile. 195 pages means I've been spending too much time here I think!

 

Previously clicked 'Content I started' and it will still only give me one page. I knew there was more!

We alter the settings a few days ago and complaints stopped coming through. We thought we had fixed it.

Please could you let us have some details about what you are trying to upload. – File type, size, anything else.

I'm sorry but that doesn't help me understand what you are trying to upload – file type and sizes.

Next time you try to upload something, flag it to us if there is a problem.

I don't quite understand how you could have used more than double your attachment limit. We still trying to understand some aspects of this platform. We'll get it right eventually.

    • This is a bit of a lengthy one but I’ll summerise best as possible.
       
      THIS IS HOW THE PHONECALL WENT 
       
      I was contacted by future comms by phone, they stated that they could beat any phone contract I have , (I am a limited company but just myself that needs a business phone and I am the only worker) 
      I told future comms my deal, £110 per month with a phone and a virtual landline, they confirmed that they could beat that, £90 per month with a phone , virtual landline  they also confirmed they would pay Vodafone (previous provider) the termination fee. As I am in business, naturally I was open to making a deal. So we proceeded. 
      Future comms then revealed that the contract would be with PLAN.COM and the airtime would be provided by 02, I instantly told them that this would break the deal as I have poor 02 signal in the house where I live as my partner is on 02 and constantly complaining about bad signal
      the salesman assured me he would send a signal booster box out with the phone so I would have perfect signal.
      so far so good.....
      i then explained this is the only mobile phone I use for business and pleasure, so therefore I didn’t want any disconnection time in the slightest between the switchover from Vodafone to 02
      the salesman then confirmed that the existing phone would only be disconnected once the new phone was switched on.
      so far so good....

    • I was talked into signing up with Future Comms (future-comms.co.uk) who cold-called me to change my mobile contract to them, via 02, rather than EE. I have a small business (only me!) and it's a business contract. True, the 4G network is better for my area. This company seemed to be a marketing set-up for various telecoms companies, so I assumed anything I signed would be with 02 and didn't think it might be a problem.
       
      They sent an email whilst I was on the phone to set up the direct debit mandate with my bank which I signed electronically. That was the first, of many, problems I found. Apparently THAT was my contract, binding me to 3 years and no 'cooling off' period, because I was a 'business' (meaning any consumer rights did not apply). When I subsequently asked in writing for a copy of my contract, that is what they sent - when I argued it was a DD mandate they insisted it was my contract!
       
      2 days later they asked for my phone details to get it unlocked which I sent. 10 days later, EE closed my account, so I changed the SIM card to 02 that had come a few days before. No network! They had done nothing about unlocking it. Fortunately I was lucky with EE who managed to give me the right codes, rather than the usual 10 days to go through Samsung.
       
      By this time I was suspicious of their set-up and wanted to cancel. As I said earlier, I found myself trapped into a 3 year contract with no 14 day cooling off period (they don't offer that). Promises to deal with my complaints never happened, promised return calls neither....and on and on.
       
      Ofcom's rules apply to consumers and small businesses (under 10 employees), yet this shower don't acknowledge that. They just repeat and repeat that I am a business so it doesn't apply. To cancel the contract I have to pay the full 3 year's fees!!
       
      I would like to know if others have had similar experiences? Or does anyone know how I can maybe declare the 'contract' unenforceable? I have never before been locked into something without a clear written contract, with t&c's! And, yes, I have asked, and yes, I have been ignored.
