I posted a way to make it work somewhere - Basically, if you click the blue box where it says the Searching Area and switch to another option and back again, it should work (If that makes sense) :^:

All this modern stuff is making me feel like an idiot.  I cannot figure out how to change skin.  I wish Cerbera's skins still were there.  They were the boringest.

I don't think there are any other skins at the moment, but I may be wrong. I haven't exactly been following what's been happening around here.

Click on Name Change History, but to save you the trouble since the forums changed a little, it's Gareth Croke, Scorps yo.

This whole name change thing is making things confusing.  Fortunately, I picked the best name when I registered.  I apologise to everyone else for taking it.

Hello Staff.

 

I didn't find the need to make a topic for this, but have one doubt regarding "Paste from Word" function that appears in Reply box.

 

Before that, Here are the screenshots put in order of steps followed.

 

Spoiler

 

Notice above, the formatting (table) is removed while contents are listed rather in tabular form.

 

Any solution(s) or alternative to this? Or the feature isn't working as intended?

The problem is you want to copy content that includes tables, which doesn't really work... On the old boards, you were able to use two different kinds of table codes. One would be the tables with borders and the other would be tables without borders. The new boards only support the latter, but admins are trying to get the tables with the borders to work again. This is a very tricky task though, as Tank said a few months ago:
 

There is a lot of work involved in getting old tables parsing correctly on the new forums. If we could get it fixed quickly, trust me, we would have.

Anyone who has experience with writing a stateful parser will know how complex they can get - simply converting patterns is easy, but tracking and catering for potentially broken and wrongly nested tags requires a lot of time. We also need to cater for bugs present in many generations of previous forum software (not just the very last version before we upgraded).

We're also working with a huge database with over 10 years of data. It takes hours to do a test run, and we have to test it again every time we fix an issue. There's no shortcut to the finish line when you're working with so much unknown data.

The bottom line is this: We do realise how vital old tables are and we're actively working on getting them restored ASAP.


In short, the table code you tried to use doesn't work yet, but they will be hopefully re-implemented in the foreseeable future.

When will we be able to change the forum skin? I'm sick of this dull blue background and the pre-release GTA V photos.

There is no set date for when a new forum skin will be available, you'll have to get used to the current one for the time being.

This new design looks pretty good for me too. Although it would take a while for me to get used to it.
