We're all learning the new layout as we go so I thought it would be good to have a thread for all the old and/or new features to be posted. Kind of a tutorial that's not a tutorial, post away!

You can also add tags to a post to aid in searching.

Almost forgot... when someone creates a new post in the classified section they will be able to choose a location prefix. The only classified forum I didn't put that on is the ebay/craigslist forum.

Another one I really like is, if you are typing a reply at the same time someone else just posted a reply in the same thread, a small popup alerts you that more reply's have been made since you last viewed the thread and gives you the option to view those before posting your reply. I honestly didn't even know about that one at all until yesterday.

found a couple I like, but here's one... when putting pic's in a post, it automatically starts right after the pic now.. so ya just hit enter a few times and add another pic... the old forum it put you at the beginning of the pic, so you had to click after it to get going.... was a pain cuz it would be all the way on the bottom/right after the pic...


still wish you could sort the "who's online" section by name, "what they're looking at", etc like the old one..

Is this new?

When viewing a forum, such as the Lounge, or New Posts section and you see the time below the latest post, click that and you'll be taken to the last post.

I know you used to to click "last post," so maybe not new, just moved is a better description of this one.

You're using the old numbering scheme (which still works, thanks to Steve's script). Has anyone tried linking to the new scheme (that includes the title in the link) and then changing the thread title? I would think that could break the link, but I haven't tried it yet.
