I think you need to have the font Oswald installed.

I don't have that font installed but fonts appear fine to me.

Managed to fix the font by activating clear type on windows 7, just sad that i had to do that. It kinda stresses my eyes :/

Actually you're right. It's just the lack of anti-aliasing to smooth it out.

@Raavi, deepthroat & VF94 - No wonder I thought it wasn't working. Vids won't show up on my phone even if I post the whole link like you guys said..

Can't see any vids. That sucks! Oh well...

Are you using mobile site links like m.youtube.com/...  That might be the issue.

I haven't read through the whole topic, so I don't know if it's been asked yet. But how do we add a link, but then do it so that we put what we want to appear as the description?

 

E.g. previously we would put the URL, and then also "click here" or whatever you wanted to put. So instead of www.thisisalink.com we could put "here" and you'd click on "here" and it would still take us to www.thisisalink.com.

 

Do you understand what I mean lol? Is it still possible to do that?

But is there a shortcut for it? Instead of having to manually type the BB code?

Ya, it's tricky to explain. I'll try.
Click on link button in the text editor, enter the address, press enter and then click the top left button in the text editor, your post will convert to BBcode, simply select the default description and edit it to your liking.

 

Ed: Give me a chance to ninja edit. :angry:

Ah yh, I got it now. Cheers bro.

I suppose it's quicker than doing it manually, the previous system was definitely better for that thing though.

Definitely was better at that but we are comparing a tweaked version with a version with default IPB settings.

Try clearing your browser cache, that should fix your issue. 

 

Apparently he's on a mobile device.. If you are then ignore this post.

I'm guessing this has been addressed - sorry if I missed it during all the forum conversion excitement(this is the first time I'm able sit and poke around at the newness):

 

The Respect+ feature;  Shouldn't there be a Respect- option too?  Am  I missing it somewhere?

There's no negative respect feature. It's already being abused, could you imagine what would happen if you could '-1' posts?

So much complication :p Another way that works is writing the link text, highlighting it, pressing the link shortcut, putting the link and your words become a link.

I think we could just do without the Respect feature. It's kinda pointless, and if anything similar was to be implemented, I'd rather see an option to "Like" individual posts.

Blackberry, and yeah, I could watch videos posted before. I can still see the old videos in the video topic, the ones posted before the upgrade, but now I can't see the new ones. I don't really mind tho, I can watch them on youtube :)

You have to click on the respect button once again on the same post you respected if you want to remove your respect from the post.

For some reason the BB codes for me are faulty. I typed [size=5] and closed it since I'm used to that and it didn't appear at all and all the BB codes disappear once I edit my post.

^ Same. I keep clicking on 'post' but it never does post.

 

I'm going to make a list of bugs, so far I have collected: 
 

- BB codes disappear after editing post

- Respect button not showing on mobile version

- Youtube videos not showing

- Can't login onto GTAF.

- Can't leave comments

- A warning with no note in the member log

- User profile shows as offline even when not logged in as anonymous

 

If you guys would like to add anything, post below.

 

Also, Kirsty told me that members will be able to change names soon. Staff already can, PrometheusX changed it to Prometheus deffpony to Deffpony and Andy to Tsuroski.

 

Expect an announcement on that soon.

but we haven't discussed what will happen with name changes yet or if we will allow them, just be patient and I'm sure we will announce it if it happens :)

"If" is not "will", no need to give people false hope for now ;) If they are ever enabled, I'd say once per year.
