Hello,

The threads titles in the New Posts page are showing up on my end. Do you only see the description of a thread?

80% of the threads in "new posts" have no title description, just the name of the thread poster/member.

As far as I can tell it is the lone remaining cripple.

Knowing little about how these things work, I suspect this is related to some user-specific setting. This occurs on many different computers/systems.

When I look at the Spider section using the new version, the page loads then after 1-2 seconds it changes to the following:

don't read this

Well, duh, if the developers would care enough to open a web console in their browser, they would see errors like these:

can someone please provide me a screenshot of the missing thread titles? I'll send that over to the tech team along with the SyntaxError.

Thank you!

I am still using the "heritage" version for the most part, except when I add a picture. I admit that the drag setup is better. However, as I enter a new post in the old system, the right hand side of it is obscured by ads. Some of the printing is covered up. Didn't used to do that. I have to renew/refresh the page in order to get those ads to retreat or disappear.

Still don't care that much for the open (lots of white with thin light colored letters/numbers) look of the new format. At least that's the way it is when I first open it on the desktop computer, not logged in yet, seems to be different on the laptop.

Also, the laptop keeps me logged in all the time, whereas I have to relog in every time I bring up the BB on the desktop computer.

Only a guess on my part, but it sounds like you may have "Remember Me" checked on the laptop and not on the desktop computer, as it pertains to having to relog-in on the desktop.

I use Legacy exclusively -- I don't like the new look or the glare created by all the white space.

Hey guys,

We really need a screenshot of the missing thread titles since everything looks fine on our end. The titles are there in every forum skin I have tested on.

~Km, community support

Legacy checked on both, but on the desktop computer, when I click on the BB, the new format comes up, and with this funny "thin" look, and me not logged in. Weird. I have to relog in and hit the legacy option every time.

I use the new format solely for adding pictures, the one good attribute for me.

Mine seems to have suddenly reverted to legacy format for no reason. I have tried setting it to "Forum default" but it doesn't change. I was happy with the new format. I am a gold subscriber and normally don't get ads, but now I am. What is happening?

The ads in the right column used to be invisible to gold members on both skins?

I would only see two GoogleAd ads at the top pre format change. They are always there now, though legacy does not show that annoying auto play Geico video.

I still can't understand why mine has reverted to legacy with ads, without me doing anything. How to I get back to the new format? I can't find the setting.
