The new mobile version is a lot harder to use in relation to navigating pages throughout a thread. Though the loading message that sometimes did not disappear and produced duplicates clogging up the screen is fixed for me. Also sometimes the "unread" status on threads i have not viewed does not come up.

I see that your profile shows how many "likes" you have gotten on posts. But, other then going back over all your posts over the last week, how can you find which posts were "like"ed?

If people are going to like what you wrote, I at least would like to see where those likes are coming from.

Love the new set up. :clap: :tsu:

Getting everything to work perfectly for everyone on the mobile skin is difficult due to the range of mobile devices out there, a patch is incoming which may fix some of the issues people have been experiencing with it.

In your profile click the "likes" option on the left hand menu, then click "received" at the top right to filter the list.

Hello again, sorry I'm late replying, but on the subject of this..

hello again. I'm sorry to be a nuisance, but there still seems to be a loading problem in that you can reply to a post, and having typed it all out and you click 'Post', those three little squares at the top'll go back and forth, but it won't seem to load, or if it does, it'll be very very slow. is this just a problem with my particular Browser, or is it just slow loading time?

When does it do that ? Every time you try to make a post ?
I can confirm that it still does it from time time, it did it a bit earlier on in fact. You sort of get stuck in limbo, with those little dots going back & forth. The only way i've found to get out of it is to copy the entire post, & open it again. It may be something to dio with Windows, that wouldn't surprise me, I think I'll try another Browser and see if it does it.


** Ah, the richness of Irony. Guess what it did when I tried to post that? That's right. So i did indeed open it again. Shall we try it again?

See my note about this from earlier, we're in the process of archiving topics that are too large as it looks like these are the main cause of the server load issues responsible for the delays you are describing.

On the old version I remember the page numbers showing up on the forum page. Now it is not showing at all. If I enter a massive thread I cannot simply navigate to the first page or any other set page but must simply use the "Prev" and "Next" options until I get to the desired page. When we get into those big 100 page threads this just doesn't seem an efficient process.

I apologise if I'm missing something here but I can't seem to find a way to navigate to pages as easily as the older version.

Update:

The 'like' system has been disabled for the time being as it appears to be contributing heavily to server performance issues, internally it has produced a cache table containing several million records and this produces long wait times when viewing threads, especially long threads with hundreds of pages. The result is that the more time passes with the 'likes' enabled, the slower things get until the forum becomes practically unusable.

I'm going to bring this up with Invision support and see if there's a way we can keep the 'like' system without this happening. We have been archiving some of the largest threads on the boards and while this does help overall performance it isn't enough on its own to counter the problem.

Saru,

How do I make this show up in my signature as a 'clickable' text/link:

<a href="http://www.unexplained-mysteries.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=184645&st=11625">Oera Linda Book and the Great Flood [Part 1]</a>

Or in a post?

Well I'm glad to know where the like button has gone.  Hope we can keep it as I use it a lot instead of posting (not that it is noticeable) lol

Great job on the update.

Saru, I don't know when you sleep.  I suspect you are a robot.

I love the new look and everything is super fast for me with Firefox.

Once again, great work and thank you for a tremendous site and splendid tolerance of me.  :tu:
