  1. Look, I started this thread for whining and obnoxious complaining about the new format, not politics.  Please keep to the subject.

    I have noticed on my Samsung phone with Android os and Samsung browser that the icons that went missing (create new thread, search, and login/message menu) are now back, and are joined by another one (on the left) which calls up unread content.

    Someone is paying attention.

    On a 2009 Macbook pro, El Capitan version 10.11.6, Firefox browser 77.0.1 (64 bit), I get:

    Too big:

    Too small:

    Just right:

    just-right.png

    Just right exists in exactly one position.  If I increase or decrease the size of the screen one bit, the search box disappears.  The box is non-functioning.  If you look closely you will see small icons superimposed that call up different pages:  Home, My Activity Streams, Create, and Search. 

    sewhite2000, this previous post of mine may help.  Try carefully adjusting the width of your window.

  3. I'm guessing this is how the beta testing is done.  They throw out the new format the best they can, because it would be too expensive to do a thorough vetting and debugging for all the browsers and issues.  And as the users yeow when they hit their heads against things, they find out what to fix.  It happened the last time a new format was dumped--I mean introduced.  And there have already been changes, for me at least.  I get the full editing bar at the top of the post box now, and there is the full list of forum topics which I didn't have before.  Not that I ever use either of them.  Except for the italics button.  Still no search box, not that I use that, either.

    After 90 days, the thread dies.  If there is enough interest, someone will revive it.

    I find that threads usually die faster than that of their own accord.  The persistence of a thread is a measure of its continuing interest, or the interest of the subject of conversation that has taken it over.

    OK I just went to Off Topics, The Democrats Better Start Praying.... and it came up Full Screen.  So what gives?

    Seems that it may be related to number of pages in the thread.  Tried some with just one or two and they come up full screen.

     

    I believe the split screen starts at 50 posts.

    The moderator asked me to post a screenshot of threads that do not show the option of Color and Size Font Icons. I donlt know how do do that. Would someone explain in simple terms how I can take a screenshot of one of my posts that has the Options header to show that the Color and Size icons are missing? Thanks so much for the help.

    You can search on your computer something like 'screenshot'.  It's probably in an application that allows you to view PDFs and such.  On my Macbook it's called Preview.  I take a screenshot, then I upload it to the image hosting site imgbb.  From there I can import the image to a thread with the Other Media function located in the lower right corner of the reply box.

    On the same computer with Chrome Version 77.0.3865.90 (Official Build) (64-bit) and with Safari Version 9.1.3 (11601.7.8) I get no Search box or other icons at all.

    By the way, this is someone else I can't recognize.

    That's what I got when I posted the address.  You have a new one now.  I'll post it:

    OLYMPUS-DIGITAL-CAMERA.jpg

    The way to get a pic in your post is to click on the Other Media icon in the lower right corner of the reply box.  In the menu that comes up, select "Insert image from URL".  You will see a box that you can paste the image address in.

  10. Yes.  But you can also get the pic in the body of your post by copying the image address on imgbb and pasting it in the other media option in the lower right corner of the reply box.  Like this:

    Speaking of "popular",  slayton,  this post of yours' should have gotten a "like", a "thanks"  or a "laugh" from everyone posting on this thread.   I laughed and laughed.  I'd forgotten all about that "Confuse-a-Cat" sketch.  Great to see it again !

    God,  Monty Python were so silly and clever and funny.

    They were--they are the best!
