The password change actually works now. ;)

Also, like the way forums work, notifications and the ability to set Likes. The phone interface is great. All around much, much better for membership enrollments and forum capabilities.

So, I kind of made a come back to the site when I was told it had migrated to new software. I browse with mobile device, and the mobile interface works nice and smooth. I tested out the image embedding, and that too is quick to use and works well. I can just simply pick an image from my phone memory and it uploads it to the post.

But I do miss the dark mode 😂

I noticed when reading through a thread that posts that draw moderator ire now have moderation comments right in that post. I don't think the old boards did that, and I think it's great - it sends a signal to others not to engage with that post or that line of posting. With separate moderator posts, it's not uncommon that people immediately react to the offensive post despite the mods already having dealt with it.

Yeah. In the past, to get the same effect, we had to edit our comments directly into the actionable post. And we'd really prefer to not edit posts on folks, unless we have to.

I’m liking the direct loading of images from my computer and mobile devices without having to utilize an image hosting site*, and the easier insertion of images and videos from the Web.
The old software did this. There was a gallery and you could upload images to it and link them to posts. No external hosting site required.
 



The quoting, both of whole posts and sections of posts are very nice. It's so much easier to multi-quote specific parts of a prior post without having to go in and edit and break it out so you can answer various parts directly. I also like the way ignore works now.

Search is much better and faster, I think it’s part of the reason we are seeing more necro threads. Also it seems google is doing deeper dives indexing ENWorld then on the old software. It’s definitely scanning the sight a ton faster and has ramped up how often it does it now. Also the sitemaps this software hands out to google are sooooo much better.

One of my favorite things is that you can cut and paste hyperlinked text from other sources and it carries over. Makes it so much easier to link citations.
I also like the pasting of images directly into the body text.

Cate to educate on how to find, create, use one of these site maps?

Sounds useful!

The site database remembers the damnedest things.

My conversations inbox is stuffed full of messages from that old war game we had going some years back. Dozens of messages saying I've been attacked. I've been deleting some of them to get rid of them. I think these were the old private messages that got ported over or something. Unfortunately, the new board software doesn't realize I read all those old messages so they're all showing up as new again.
