Yet another Post about the upgrades

Hey BOL?ers

I have been following some of the feedback about the new forums upgrade. I am posting his as a new topic strictly because his may get caught in the noise in the other topics or just may not be seen, which is the point I am about to make.

My issue is that I am not to keen about the way the conversations are laid out. I do like how the original posting is put in the top, but the ways the responses are laid out. And if some one responds to one of the responses, it gets rendered in such a way that you could actually miss it. I know it gets highlighted in green and all that, but it can get missed. I wonder if anyone is having that bit of a challenge.

The lay out is flat, where the old lay out appeared more logical to me and would be indented and you could quickly identify what is a response to the original post and what would be a response to another response.

Is it me, or is this something that would fall into the web 2.0 area? I am not up on this so I could be way off base here.

Other then that I am very pleased with the upgrades. Better layout in the topics area, better server response time and thread count is better. All the little things in the background that many of us just don?t see or realize.

Anyways, thanks for reading/ I know there are better things to be chatting about.

You can change your "Forum display" option...

The "Forum display" control at top right can be switched between

Tree view - traditional, and I still use it for very long topics.

Threaded - my preferred layout

Flat - not really sure why it is available

The preference once set is sticky.

and Owyn for the win!

Thanks! It works and I like it.
It was the only thing I didn't like about the new forums and now I like.
