Where is the "View Your Posts" link at the top?

Post by WWu777 »

The "View Your Posts" link is usually there at the top. But it's not anymore. That is a major link so it should be there.

Also why was this forum down for many hours yesterday? Upgrades and updates can be made without taking the forum down.

It is.
It's under the quick links top left.

Not one as big as this. It takes a long time to update a board of this size. It's now running 3.1, as the announcement stated.

I don't see any improvements. You guys are operating on the fallacy that "new" is ALWAYS better. It is not.

For one thing, the "View Your Posts" link should be at the top. Not in the Quick Links submenu. Most regular posters look for that link and go to it first thing to check responses to their posts. So that is a major important page. It should be linked directly in the overall header at the top, not in a submenu. The most important pages should be linked in the main menu as a button or link, not in a submenu.

You should all know this from common sense. So why did the developers change that? That's a change for the worse, not for the better.

Moreover, when I go to the "View Your Posts" page, this thread does not appear on the list of my posts even though I started it. What happened? There appears to be a bug in the upgraded forum.

I agree with this. I never liked the fact that the View Your Posts link was moved into a menu. But it was done for a reason, and I don't think the devs will change this back. I may not like it either, but I'm willing to try to get used to it (and part of me really like the quick menu actually) I think there was a topic in Area 51 that argued the View Your Posts link shouldn't be in the menu...

Another thing:

The styles demo database does not appear in the Customise menu at the top. When you open that submenu, there is supposed to be a Styles Demo, but it no longer appears.

I like the links in the menu as it de-clutters the amount of items in the header.

as many people tend to do, you are making assumptions about how "most" people use phpbb.

I have been here since the beginning of phpbb2, I have never once clicked on the "view my posts" link and did not know it was there for the longest time.

point is, just because you think it should be a certain way, does not mean everyone does.

I am guilty of this as well, so I am not picking on you or your opinions. Just remember, it is your opinion, not a fact.

luck,

Because a responsive style, ACP improvements, notifications, extensions, and the many other changes and improvements don't count right? :roll:

There was a 31 page discussion about moving links and grouping things together prior to committing to the change. Your opinion is really in the minority.

Styles demo link is not there because it was decided we didn't need the link since it was looking crowded. To reach the Styles Demo now you have to go through the Styles link.

What do you mean? There are many phpbb3 styles to choose from. Why are you invalidating them? The Styles demo page is an important page for demoing other themes to choose from. I don't understand your logic.

Also, the "View Your Posts" and "View Active Topics" link on the forum index page of Prosilver is way too small and needs to be bigger, since those are key pages that are most clicked on.

I've placed big links at the top of my forum to "View Your Posts" and "View Active Topics" since those are important pages that are the most often clicked on. If anyone wants to see how I did it, here it is.

I don't understand something. Phpbb3 works great. The pages load fast and smooth and all the features work great. Why the need for a phpbb3.1?

When phpbb3.1 comes out, will support for phpbb3 still be provided?

Support for 3.0 will be around for some time yet. You can update when you are ready. I'm sure that there are people who are still on phpBB 2 :)
Please note that I will not be porting any of my mods to phpBB 3.1. Sorry for the inconvenience this may cause.
