some things lost after the upgrade

hi MathsisFun,

The upgrade seems to be working well now.  I've waited before making this request as you had some debugging keeping you busy.

(1)  The 'post an image' facility seems to have gone (or I cannot figure how to use it).  Any chance it could be resurrected?

(2) Similarly the top of page tabs (index, rules, search etc) were repeated at the bottom.  That was really handy when a thread got very long.

(3) Ditto the Topics: Posted | New | Active | Unanswered links.

If any of this is possible, I'd be grateful if you could tweak it for me.  smile

Bob

Re: some things lost after the upgrade

Solution:

(1)For MIF: Use the Simple Image Upload mod or an upload mod. I've tested these and already shown you that they work.

Workaround for Bob: Use imgur.com
Better workaround: convince MIF to install it.

(2) and (3): that would require tweaking some of the fluxBB files but it is not impossible.

Workaround: use keyboard shortcuts

I don't understand 1. You can't post images right now?

Re: some things lost after the upgrade

(1) is a suggestion for MIF

You cannot upload pictures, Shivam.

Re: some things lost after the upgrade

I have been using Imgur so far.


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.

Re: some things lost after the upgrade

Hi Bob,

Thanks for that, I will look into how I might be able to repeat the tabs in this version.

I think imgur (or the like) is the best solution for image hosting at the moment.

Re: some things lost after the upgrade

It is a cumbersome solution

Or just create a simple back to top button.

Re: some things lost after the upgrade

hi MathsisFun,

Thanks for that.  With the old version, I would try to keep my diagrams small and use the upload.   I used imgur.com for larger diagrams.  Now I use imgur all the time; so maybe that's for the best as it means I don't compromise on quality smile .
