Conversation uploads are disabled for now while we figure out a solution to attachment storage.How do I upload pics now in a private message without attaching a HTML link
There's a link to alert preferences at the bottom of the alerts dropdown.Do I really have to click on every alert to get them to go away???
Frankly, I shouldn't have to click a button to mark as read. I'm just looking at the alerts, not reading them. I'm also an OCD type so I Must. Not. Have unread alerts. Annoying little feature.No at the top of the page is a link that you can push to clear them all.
Joe, I've seen that page, but unclicking those boxes does not make that mark as read upon viewing the list. It seems that unclicking would do that, but no.Conversation uploads are disabled for now while we figure out a solution to attachment storage.

Click that, scroll down to this section, and you can set whether or not it marks them read when you click the alerts menu.
If your on a computer they clear themselves if you click the alert button. I happen to like it when they stay until you click each one because then I know what I have read and haven't read.Frankly, I shouldn't have to click a button to mark as read.

If "Alerts pop-up skips mark read" is unchecked the alerts should go away when you view the alerts menu.

Wait - what? I guess on one hand, that will allow post count to grow faster (have to post a reply to provide clarification or updates). But on the other hand, I also use the "edit" function a LOT on my old posts. Looks like the "edit" function still exists on classifieds, but not on regular posts.I don't like not being able to edit or delete a post after a certain amount of time. Sometimes I spot a typo or want to update information in a post but it looks like I can no longer edit or delete a post after a certain amount of time.
Hover over the user name, and you'll see "Rating" and a percentage. Click on that and it will take you to the feedback. But I do agree that I preferred the old system of seeing the actual counts instead of a percentage. 100% with one transaction is way different than 95% with a hundred+ transactions.I used to be able to see feedback received/feedback sent. Now I'm not sure where those functions/buttons are?
You're not alone. Candidly, this one of the few things I didn't like about the new versions. Likes are clear and friendly; reactions, well, kind of vague, in my humble opinion. Though, I suppose, I get the interest in a more nuanced feedback system, even if it doesn't resonate personally. (I looked into it months ago and it appears to be a core part of the new XF version, so I did not bring it up. Hardly the end of the world, of course. )That "Reaction" thing is a little odd. I think of a reaction as more of a swelling of a body part or some kind of itchy rash.
Ditto! The search function is very good now. Not that the old one was bad compared to other board software. Still much of an improvement.I am extremely happy with how the SEARCH works now
The above is kinda a problem for me. When I close my ad, and don't put "SOLD" or "TRADED" at the top, I get messages asking about it even years after it is gone. Since I have started putting the above at the top of my ad, then closing it, I have not been asked about an item in a closed ad. I can live with the rule, if it needs to stay, but I will tick folks off when I reply "I was sold years ago, leave me the bubblegum alone!".When the ad is done, close it using the button below. Do not edit the ad with "sold", "gone", "done", etc.
