      Great. I've heard he's a SPAM generator.

        • Changes are made. Let me know if you notice any unusual behavior. The site isn't being heavily used right now but hopefully when it's under load the performance should be snappier.

            Wow. Loading super fast for me. Both here and on Tapatalk.

            Hooray for BFM!

                Hmm... Not so quick now.

                • Hey, like buttons on each post!

                  Many times I’ve wanted to like something that made me laugh or had me nodding my head in agreement, but didn’t want to respond just to acknowledge the poster’s brilliance.

                  • The "Latest Activity" option doesn't really seem to pull up the latest activity. I would expect it to show all the latest posts - most recent first. Instead, it seems to show threads in some haphazard order. Maybe it's showing the most recently created threads?

                    Edit: I think I just figured it out. I switched the "New Topics" option in the filter to "Off" and now it seems to be showing all the most recent posts.

                      Now all I need to know is how to mark everything as "read", or "seen", or whatever.

                        Go to the main page and scroll to the bottom and click on the "Mark Channels Read" link.

                          Got it. That works.

                          So why isn't that available whenever the "New Topics" is available?

                          • So when I get a notification of a new post it is something like:
                            A new post in your Forum Post subscription: What Are You Reading Now?
                            How about shortening it a bit, like:
                            Reply to post: What Are You Reading Now?
                            Or even shorter than that if possible.

                              That is not something I can change easily.

                                So there isn't a line of code somewhere with a string that you just change?

                                Sounds like whoever wrote it didn't think about what really needs to be customizable. I can select "Denim", "Old School", or "Orange Purple" for how the page looks, but the wording on email messages that get sent to everybody can't be modified? Pathetic.
