    Request for feedback on adjustments to FG

    I've tinkered and several of the problems have cleared up, some are definitely still present on the site.

    Could I have comments on what still needs fixing.

    I'm aware "New Posts" is not reacting to posts promptly, I have it in mind to reduce the cache life to 10 seconds for a trial but I'll keep an eye on performance while doing that.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    Timeout on the login expires more quickly the of yore. Whereas before the new post list was showing threads where you'd seen all of the posts, it now misses some threads with outstanding posts. This post will test whether the editor is still ignoring line breaks. Yes, it is.

    I just got the advanced editor. I'll check whether that's my default but I thought I was meant to get the quick editor. Hmm.

    The login timeout applies when "remember me" is not selected. It was 4 hours, I've put it to 8 for the moment to make any error more obvious.

    I can't replicate the line break issue. Perhaps gmc can confirm it happened to him recently? ETA: And Fourpart.

    I'll watch carefully for posts I've not seen dropping off the "New Posts" list.

    The new posts problem shows up best when comparing the highlighted threads in Today's Posts with those showing in New Posts. In general the board feels much better for the changes, especially getting rid of the delay in updating the search lists.

    I've banged at it for several minutes and so long as I bring up the actual new post, not just the thread with the new post in it, the new post thread disappears immediately from the New Post list. If all I do is look at the start of the thread instead of the page with the actual new post in, then the thread stays shown. Other than that it's behaving for me as I'd expect it to, but I'll continue to check.

    The oddity way a couple of threads that I had not looked at disappearing from the new post list but still showing as unread in the today's post list. Since I posted about it the problem has not reoccurred so I'd mark it down as a transient and ignore it.

    The feature tabs, ie font size, insert video, wrap quotes, insert email etc, are not working for me when I compile a post.

    For me, now, the new posts listing seems to be working as expected. It was showing things like "5 new posts" yet listing 15-20 when selected.

    Or showing 5 new posts, and when selected indicating that there were no new items.

    As Snowfire pointed out, the editing tool seems nearly completely broken.
    Also, adding new items to the Gallery fails miserably.

    I almost exclusively use Chrome browser, but can try a few others, if you wish.

    My mind reacted curiously to that. I'd noticed in the sense that I'd had my italic command ignored, but I'd not remembered it when listing errors. Possibly because I have no idea what I did to break it.

    I'll go and look.
