New Forum Glitches

by 4 replies
The new forum platform isn't user-friendly. I prefer the old bulletin style forum.

When you type ctrl-z on your thread within the new forum replies, it doesn't undo your recent typing (instead of clicking backspace, I often click ctrl-z) rather it replaces everything you've typed with someone elses posts.

An important glitch to fix because it's equivalent to a ctrl-a + delete.

    Hi seotprosperity,

    CTRL + Z should work quite happily for you (confirmed, working on my setup) in the reply box.

    Could you let me know what browser + operating system you're using?

      Hi Marcus,

      Thanks for your response. I am using Chrome on windows.

      Can you confirm you're not replicating the problem with the new forum set-up? Ctrl-Z works with the old forum responses (that require to open a new reply).

      I tried responding to the chat box style forum (the newer design I think). When clicking ctrl-z to my response there, it seem to load earlier replies others have already written. The one with up-vote option.

    Heya! yep, I'm using Chrome on macOS and it's working fine. Have also tested this on a Windows 10 machine + chrome.

    This is in feed view not the old forum (in the url you'll notice the ?view=modern). Can you let me know if it's still failing to action for you? Besides testing on my side and it working for us, I'm not sure if this is an issue on our side.

      Hi Marcus,

      Yes, it appears it is the feed view. The Warrior Forum sometimes loads the feed view and sometimes loads the threads view when I access the home page.

      It occurred once approximately three days ago when I was bought to the feed view automatically for some reason (presuming it was the new forum design) and thought I could contribute to the conversation meaningfully. Unfortunately after penning a response in five minutes, typing ctrl-z replaced the reply with a prior user's response.

      While I haven't tried accessing the feed view since, I just did search on Google (realize after the fact, "Feed" was in your top menu) and just tried a sample response in feed view to the same outcome.

      If you can send me a PM with an email address for your bug reporting techs, I can take a Jing screen capture if it'll help identify the problem.
      - Typing ctrl-z on a feed view chat without response will delete your entire thread reply
      - Typing ctrl-z on a feed view chat with prior responses will load the previous reply. Typing ctrl-z again will load the reply prior to that and so forth.

      I tried it on the following feed view thread: https://www.warriorforum.com/interne...ents#/comments

      Thanks again for your time.

      (I don't typically navigate to feed unless it automatically appears while visiting warriorforum.com main page. With this said, the alternating between the traditional forum and the new feed view makes things confusing sometimes when unfamiliar with navigating between feed and forum. While I see the value of having an up-vote and chat like discussion, I do prefer the traditional forum layout - perhaps rightfully a resistance to change and unfamiliarity.

      In my humble opinion, a forum varies significantly from a feed discussion and will affect the quality of responses as well as community type - a chat feed will generally render short and quick replies like a chat box, while a forum layout will likely compel more lengthy responses which better engages the community.)
