I very much like the new forum design

Smacks of change for change's sake.

 

Hello,

it's an update to the forum software by Invision, not a revision created by Orbx.

Depending on the browser you use, there are addons that reduce the glare.

I use Firefox and "Dark Reader", which suits my ageing eyes.

Is it me or is the forum very slow these days?  I find that it takes a very long time to load, especially if I select to see unread content.   

 

Unread Content has been slow for me for many months now, I think it is somehow classified under the authorities' suspect forums for some reason and the ISP content checking algorithms have to check each time.  Probably by mistake but I can't think of any other reason it would be so slow.

Hello,

if you are using this link

 

[img]https://i.imgur.com/your image.png[/img]

 

try it without the [img][/img] ,

like this:

Also, please note that the forum no longer accepts links that are not https

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hi Nick

Although this works, you have to click on the link and then the image appears in a new window

Is there any way for the image to automatically show as before

Thanks

Pete

You should just be able to copy and paste.

if the forum takes over, copy your BBCode into Notepad and then just select

the middle part to paste into the forum.

I only use two browsers regularly, but both of them show me "Copy image address"

if I right click on the imgur image and pasting that into the forum works.

Yes, that's perfect!! Thank you very much Nick! :) Now I can read the tags as clear as all the grey traffic lights!:D

 

I have always wondered how a person with dyschromatopsia can manage traffic lights. :D

Tried that Nick, without success.

We're aware of the issue with the post prefixes (active, answered, resolved, etc) and will be fixing them soon. In the meantime, let us know if there's anything else important that has broken with this update!

Indeed.

Imgur.com no longer works like it used to, pre-update, for putting images into Community Screenshots.

Hi Bernd,

 

Invision's goal with their forum software is to have the editor and the actual post 1:1. Anything you see in the editor is what will appear in the final post.

 

For example:

This is what the post looked like before I submitted it:

image.png

 

Finally, here's a short video showing how you can upload images to imgur and have them embedded into the forum. The key part is to wait until you see "upload complete" so you can copy the image's URL.
