Thread: New Thread Icons

  1. #1

    Default New Thread Icons

    OK, so whose idea was it to retheme the thread icon images into vaguely-WoG-y stuff?

    And what do these icons represent?

    Default

    Mine, and the key is at the bottom of the forum pages like it always has been.

    "Icon Legend" still shows the old tiny symbols.

    Some browser cache problem?
    They show up fine for me (using soaring 4).

    Has to be a cache thing... reload the page by hitting the F5 key and/or move your mouse over the little icons in question to see if that helps.

    Didn't see them before; hit F5 and now I can. Pretty cool, thanks Keith.

    Curious: what constitutes a "hot" thread?

    Shift-reload sometimes does the trick.

    There's the problem! lol I just checked it with IE and it looks fine. Just to make sure, you are looking at the Icon Legend at the bottom of the Officer's Club forum list correct?

    Negative; the Icon Legend at the bottom of What's Going On at the bottom of the Forum main page.

    I emptied my cache and reloaded the page. Still no new Icon Legend. I'm using Firefox 14.0.1

    That legend is not going to show you the thread icons as it is a Forum level legend. You will have to look inside a forum where it shows the actual threads and use the legend in there.

    Kind of like using the index from a different book then the one you're reading

    The one which is on the Forum front page, so should tell what you'll be looking at inside.

    Click on 'Forum' in the header, scroll down to 'What's Going On' and the last element of that is a 4 line description of the icons labelled 'Icon Legend'.

    Inside a particular forum, the Icon Legend conforms to the new layout.

    The legend at the bottom of the page shows the icons for the page you are currently on... does that make more sense?

    So, when you are on the Forum list, it shows icons for the forums (although we don't really use them since I went with an image to help associate the forum and it's content). Inside the different forums, where it shows all the threads, it shows the icons for the threads.

    Yep, all fine. I'm not particularly fussed about the chrome, but what really gives me the irrits is what used to take 2 mouse clicks (Today's Posts, Mark Forums Read) now takes 5 (Forum, Today's Posts, Forum, Forum Actions, Mark Forums Read). I guess that's progress!

    Okay, if you are entering the site on the What's New page, it should be one click to view the old style Today's posts, and now another to click on Mark Forums Read.... so only two clicks. If you are entering the site on anther page, it should only be 3 clicks. Better?
