To all those concerned :winky:

This is my UCP in Firefox.

User Control Panel Firefox 0001 07172021.jpg

It is rather complete in firefox, Munch.

With that said, I liked being able to change the titles that then showed in "Recent Topics".

I think it livened the list up. I found myself clicking on that link because of the intriguing title.

I think it created more curious interest.

And, one other nitpick, while I'm here anyway! :winky: I like to have vertical space between text and images so they don't look scrunched up, crammed in. On the old layout a space was created simply by hitting the "Carriage Home" lever dropping the cursor by one line. Now I have to put something like 3 lines between the text an images to obtain similar spacing. See below...

Thanks for all you do, Roller!,

One other thing.

Just my opinion.

This looks haphazard and wonky. There is A LOT of wasted space under the Recent Topics in the sidebar...

Besides the waste of space, it looks unfinished to me.

Again, just my opinion :winky:.

My apologies, I forgot to change permission settings, when I moved them over. Go to your User Control Panel now and check your display settings area.
There should be controls available to you.

I've also put 30px on top of every post image, so you shouldn't have to need CR to obtain space. (nice eye to notice that.)
As far as the Post Subject showing as Title in Topic List. Although it does add some flair, it makes moderation not as simple as moderation should be.
So it will stay as displaying Topic Title for now. Maybe User Control of that feature will arise one day.

You know what I find not so aesthetic? Post Icons.. peeking out from beneath the post status icons... that's fixed now.

You know when people talk about Awesome Sauce? They're talking about you...

Did you know that?

Attachments now copy and paste!!

Post by roller24 »

Attachments just got even easier..
Now you can "copy image" with right click, and then paste that image into a post.
The image will be converted and loaded as an attachment.
Pretty slick.
seems works on web images and your cpu images.
