    Hi all - we’re delighted to welcome you to the new Boards platform! Thank you again for your patience over the last while as we directed our attention towards this platform and performed the actual migration. We were finally able to push live late last night / early this morning after a lot of wrangling. This new version will allow us to update the site quicker, add new features, increase uptime and not have to invest all of our dev resources into just keeping the site alive.

    We are very aware that there are some issues with CSS styling, view on touch etc - we have listed out what we know so far below. The great news is that we are fixing that on the fly. We had to focus all of our attention on making things work - while didn’t get it 100% right… we are now able to fix it. The team are already going through css updates to fix the problems. Touch in particular is getting a lot of attention so you will see updates there through the day.

    Many things should look and feel familiar. However, there are some pretty big changes which will result in more stability. There will also be some difference in how this site functions and perhaps some features that you used on the legacy site that did not carry over. We knew that the migration would be tough and expected a lot of teething issues - but we are literally fixing on the fly

    We will need your assistance (and patience again!) as we clear out of some of these issues. A lot of them are simple CSS so you will see impact there quickly. Reply to this thread for reporting issues and we will reply and update here. Please provide as much detail as possible (especially with so many different browsers, operating systems, screen sizes, etc.), including steps to replicate if you can, and images can be very helpful too.

    If you would like to request development of a feature that hasn't carried over (or to suggest possible improvements for an existing feature), we have the Site Development forum for suggestions.



    Current issues being worked on:

    • CSS styling issues on desktop and mobile (mobile in particular is being focussed on first)
    • Some content not migrated over (social groups - soccer etc)
    • Long user names / roles pushing user info panels out
    • Hovering over user name drop down appears broken
    • Posts not numbered
    • ‘Like’ button should be ‘Thanks’. Cannot see who you have thanked
    • Quote function - adding too much space in reply
    • Dropdown menu wrong colour
    • Share links on hover have wrong style
    • Thread heading style needs updating
    • Forum view first post listed as last
    • Breadcrumb not sticky
    • Various font and layout issues
    • User ranking not displaying
    • Thank count not viewing correctly

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
