Compatibility view didn't work, and my screen resolution is at the right setting...The only thing that's helped so far is changing the theme from UM Blue to IP Board Mobile...

What you are describing is not the way the new layout should be, the site should be working fine in IE8.

You are not trying to view the forums in an 800x600 resolution are you ? You should be using 1024x768 minimum.

Been tryna figure this bit out too! Where do I change the resolution and will it effect other sites?


duh: I'm using firefox

By resolution i meant the resolution of the screen, this is a setting of your Operating System. If you can see the site in your browser without having to scroll horizontally ( and have the browser maximised ) then you don't need to change your resolution.

Depends on your Operating System, in Windows 7 right click on your desktop and select "Screen resolution".

Ok, I actually have XP, but I changed it to a higher setting to get it right, thanks!

Editing has become a major pain.

The site already loads like glue for me, but waiting for an edit to load is even worse.

And after I have posted my edit, sometimes I'm being redirected to the start of the thread.

And as you may know, I edit a LOT.

Saru, do you have any idea why this site loads so slow for some?

It already did before the update, but now it's even worse.

Btw: I have blocked 'ad.yields', and I am on Windows-7.

Issues with your local network, firewall or anti-virus software on your computer, browser plug-ins, malware - any number of different factors can cause a site to load slow for someone - there are too many variables.

There are no major performance issues on this end, the forums in general appear to be running quicker than with the old version. There are some load speed issues on some pages but these are being looked in to and should be fixable.

You can update your status from anywhere now - the box is in your user drop-down menu at the top right.

You don't have your notification options set up to receive e-mails for thread updates.

Click on the notifications icon at the top right ( next to the PM icon ) and click "options". Go down to the "topics and posts" section and check the email boxes on the right to configure what emails you'd like to receive.
thank you.  Not sure how it got changed.  One would think that when I changed all threads in "content I follow" to "notify me of updates" that it would do what it says.

That's true however 'notify' doesn't auotmatically translate to sending an email - you have to specify how you want to be notified.
