We're all upgraded. Over the next few days, weeks, etc., I'l, be tweaking everything to try and make it the best forums experience you have ever had. 👍

I'll be using this post, and updating it, for the tweaks and additions I make.

Thank you for being members of UnionVGF!

UPDATES

June 5, 2018
So far so good. Everything seems to be running ok. I have to re-learn how to adjust the style so I can get it more the way I like it. Emoji support is now fully active. Reactions are active as well. I'm currently running an update behind the scenes to import all of the likes/reactions from version 1.X. It's going to take some time for the hundreds of thousands of reactions to be imported. Hopefully that goes smoothly!

Jump to post and to top is now working again.

On mobile you can create a thread from anywhere. Just click the little pencil icon.

Bookmarks are now active. All you have to do to bookmark a post, thread, media, whatever, is to click the little bookmark beside it.

June 6, 2018
Added visitor panel to bottom of screen when viewing on mobile.

BIG ADDITION! Chat rooms!

June 7, 2018
Added two new styles and changed the default. UnionVGF Light (Default) and UnionVGF Dark.

I have to tweak the style to get it to how it was previously. I can’t import anything style wise and I need to do it from the beginning.

Thank goodness because at the moment it seems very hard to differentiate things.

That was fast. Glad we didn't have an upgrade apocalypse. Thanks for all your work to keep the forum upgraded and humming along.

Nice job!

As you said, the style is a bit off, but for what seems like a fairly large update, things seem smooth enough.

Ok, I'm spent! That's all for tonight. I think I got pretty far along and everything seems to be running well. Likes seem to have been transferred over for the most part. Some may have been lost in transition, but hopefully not.

Looks good so far. Hope we can still use the AD styler. I liked having my own background color, it was a cool feature that i haven't seen available at other forums.

That feature is gone. It was too resource intensive.

That sucks. Could you just add basic color backgrounds? Like a blue, green, and red? Or even a white. Just not a big fan of random graphics in the background. Also what about being able to add our Switch ID/friend code to our profile like we can for XBL and PSN. That would be slick.

I can for all of that, but let me get everything solid then I'll work on it.

I like the GTA colour pallette. It's like, bottom MASC, fitting for pride month. All that's missing is the egg plant emoji.

Good work PV! 10 points for Hufflepuff!

Couple small issues I'm seeing, just to get them out there:

- breadcrumbs text gets lost because it matches its background color. I'm using the tactical world of warcraft theme and the breadcrumbs under the threads are dark blue on a dark blue background. Hard to see.
- breadcrumbs don't include link back to main forum page. Have to open left nav and click forums to get back there quickly.
- pagination only has a next a previous button. We used to be able to pick from a number of pages. At the very least it should include first and last.

That's about it. And note, these are all on mobile. I have no idea what it looks like on desktop yet.

Again, good job!

Adjusted breadcrumb at the bottom so it's more visible. Added page numbers. As far as "home" in the breadcrumb, it's there, but you need to have it horizontal. You get more of the breadcrumb.

Sorry for ruining her for you hung like an armadillo folks. :B->:
Armadillos have exceptionally large penises.
The penis of the nine-banded Armadillo is one third of its body length. In other Armadillo species, it can be a full two-thirds of body length.

I like the font and layout of UI.X Dark A LOT! Now if you had it in LIGHT, I would be sold. It's really nice.
