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:

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!

I can’t upload or delete any attachments since this upgrade. It’s saying I’m over my limit

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.
