Board Upgrade Completed

Bill O’Brien is still the coach. This upgrade fixed nothing.

Seriously though, great job. Looks good. Can’t find any immediate issues but I haven’t been on much since the change.

Really appreciate keeping Angry Baby. Been using it for years.

Ok. After creating my weekly game thread, there is a big problem.
Before this upgrade, I could go to the teams official sites and then go to their Depth Chart and copy the offense for example. Just highlight the positions and names and then copy them and paste them in my post. Well, when I did that this morning, it copied the entire grid with each position and name inside boxes. I thought it looked great and completed my thread that way. When I went to post my thread, it gave an error message that the post could not be over 15,000 characters. Since I had been doing it this was for several years when creating my threads, I had to figure that it was the Grids that was taking it over the allotted 15k characters, so I tried again. It wouldn't let me post it without the grid when copying and pasting. I had to end up Cutting and pasting each individual name from the grid to my post. The idea behind the way I do it is so each name is a link to their individual stats and the team they belong to. It took me almost an hour just to do that part for each team. Talk about a pain in the butt. This is going to make it very difficult to continue creating my threads for the games. Please look into this and see if you can fix this part back. Other then that, the new look is great and having different skins to choose from is great.
Thanks
Try it now. I think I was able to disable that limit.

OK, I found something I have a little problem with. I used to be able to set the number of posts per page to my preference. I think I had it at 50. I see no option for that anymore and it's a standard 20 posts per page now. Is that an option we can get back to?

I just use my iPhone for Tapatalk, I see zero changes. Am I’m supposed to uninstall and reinstall or something?

...nvr mind, don't need it.
I do miss (or can't find) the "go to first unread" button...

How is it more difficult?
When you open a thread, you have no idea where you are. You have to scroll to the bottom to access the page control. At first I had problems moving back several pages, until I found how to press the page button to bring up a navigation control. This is a nice touch, but you need this at the top of the page as well as at the bottom.

Only missing the 'go to first unread' button
I thought that myself.
But later I noticed that at the top of each thread (after you go to it) there's a "Jump to New" button on the right. Does the same as "First Unread"

I will say it seems to load faster.... especially on the "What are you Listening to..." pages :o)

Text color palette is full of freakin pastels.... Is that some sort of millennial PC thing..?

One of the default skins for the boards it’s a blue background. It works great for me and my colorblindness.
You sure do have to look close to tell what page you're on from the symbols at top and bottom.

The text size when typing in the reply box appears somewhat larger/bolder and somewhat easier to read than when it is posted. Also would it be too difficult to have users have a default setting option on the size of the text..........or possibly easier, make the overall default a little larger?

I'm still learning the backend of this thing and trying to figure out what I can change and where. I did just figure out how to make the text within the posts larger. By default it was 15px. I just changed it to 18px. Let me know what you think. It's pretty big now.

I believe that did the trick. Would be interested if others agree. Do you think making the quoted text just a step larger would also improve its legiblity.

Not sure. I thought people use Tapatalk because it has it’s own design and layout that they prefer over the default board.

With help from the developer that I hired I was able to add space in between posts so that it doesn't look like it's running together anymore. Slowly but surely we will keep improving things. :)
This improvement is most definitely better on my eyes. Thank you so much!

That this place looks like my grandma's phone now..
Lol. I usually don't pay much attention to it as long as I know how to navigate around. I often do not note who I am responding to in a reply. I am more interested in the conversation than the than the surroundings and whom I am conversing with.

Is there any way I can say no to tapatalk one time instead of everytime I come online?
I don't see any option for that in the TapaTalk area of the backend. That said, I am not getting that. That's probably a browser/cookie issue. I use Chrome and I have to clear my cookies to get the Tapatalk thing to pop up again.
