UPDATE: Forum update on 5th september 2017

Question

Update on the update :D 

As you can see we've done some major changes to get things going. The default theme is now the Soompi theme so you can react, like and what-have-you all you like, no matter in which theme you are. If you're still experiencing problems, please post them here! We'll investigate and search for solutions while we "pretty things up" as @Hanyeoun said in his update on the announcement.


UPDATE:

We've noticed that most problems can be solved by taking these steps. Check if the problem exists after each step (there's no need to continue with the next step if the problem is solved):
- Hit CTRL+F5, it reloads the page from the server instead of using the cache from your browser.
- Clear cookies and internethistory. In most browsers you can search for cookies and history from a single site. You only need to remove those from soompi.com
- Try a different browser (Chrome, Firefox, Edge)

If, after trying these steps, your problem still exists, please mail to help@soompi.com and add a screenshot of the error you're getting. The more info you provide, the easier it will be to solve your problems. So explain the error you get, when and where you get it and add that you've taken the above steps.
We're currently collecting more data to show the problems to our software developer to get things done quicker.
Thank you for your understanding and your patience.

END OF UPDATE

As you might have noticed, we had a forum update yesterday. 

I would kindly ask you to post below in this topic if you're missing something, if something's not working (correctly) or if something has changed and you can't find it. Please read through this first post before posting your issue. Chances are, your problem has already been logged. Together, we'll search for solutions to our problems. :) Thanks for your cooperation and understanding!

BTW: if you've found a work around to some of the problems listed, feel free to share! :) 

Changes we know about:
- It is no longer possible to like posts, though reputation points are still available Fix: switch to the default theme (bottom of the page). It allows you to "react" to a post. "Reactions" will come to the Soompi theme in one way or another. Stay safe people! :wink: Fixed. Liking, as well as other reaction possibilities, has been restored/added.
- The red color for notifications and mail has changed slightly to a darker tint. We're using a temporary theme/skin atm with different colors. Expect the new colors and theme to arrive soon.
- Quoting someone and/or editing the quote to remove unwanted pics or text will create extra lines, eventhough those were deleted Fixed
- Avatars are showing the first letter of the user
- Linespacing after hitting enter shows double lines. Fix: to work around this, hold CTRL while hitting Enter. You'll only move down one line. Fixed
- GIF/Image embedding seems wonky Fixed
- Colors for next pages (at the bottom of a thread/section) have changed, we'll look into if it's suitable or not This is related to the theme/skin and will be fixed when the new theme/skin is introduced
- No notification received for replies to your thread unless tagged in the post Fixed
- Tagging someone only works when typing slow so pace yourselves :) Fixed
- Embedding Instagram/twitter posts seems wonky Fixed
- Twitter embedding seems wonky Fixed
- New posts in a thread are shown with a black star instead of a blue star This is related to the theme/skin and will be fixed when the new theme/skin is introduced
- Mobile site seems to respond badly to requests to open pages, etc. Fixed
- Pages not loading or not loading properly. Fix: hit refresh (F5) or use CTRL+F5 to fetch the page from the server instead of digging around in your cacheFixed
- clicking on the page number if you are on the same page it won't re-load, pls use the 'refresh' on your browser to refresh the page you are on currently Fixed
- Typing a tagged name will give you a list of max 10 names, scrolling the list is not possible (so for instance @camel would only list 10 names, but not mine). Typing more characters will narrow the list, making the one you wanted to tag pop out eventually. 
- Some signatures may be messed up because they made use of code that worked in the previous version but haven't been restored yet. This will most likely be automatically fixed as soon as the new Soompi theme is active
- It is currently not possible to move your avatar/profile pic around. Previously it was possible to move it around so you could cut out things you didn't want it to show. Currently this is not possible.

 

Changes we don't know about:
- Yeah, this is where you come in :wink:

As we go along, we'll find solutions and implement those. We'll find workarounds and list them here. We'll also update the list of changes as we find out more :)
In the (fairly near) future there are some new and exciting options coming and this update is to prepare for that. In the mean time we'll have to work with what we've got so please bare with us :) 
If you have any questions, feedback or anything else you'd wish to share about this update, feel free to post it right here!

p.s. As this section of the forum handles questions, it's possible to select the best answer to the question posted in the first post. More votes (the up/down arrows to the left of a post) means it moves up. This is intended to find the correct answer to the question in the quickest manner. However, this suggests that new posts (if voted for) are posted above older posts. This is only a feature for this specific section though.

Did the provider give you any kind of change log/feature list that the update was supposed to include? What of the forum extensions/add-ons specific to Soompi? The biggest thing I've noticed outside of the removal of the like/dislike feature is that the site seems to have adopted something of a flat/material look. I should add the page number/links look a bit off as well:

We've got bits and pieces of info. Some has changed due to the update, some is because our scripts need some adjustment to work well with the new software. So we're figuring those things out right now :)

The problems you've mentioned are in the first post, but thanks for pointing them out. If you have any other issues, we'd be glad to hear about it :)

@CamelKnight Thank you very much for creating this informative thread!

Just some other issues I potentially see (assuming I did not imagine how it used to be in its previous incarnation -_-):

1. When I tried tagging username it does not allow me to scroll down the entire list.
    e.g. If I just typed "@Camel" it gives me the following list of 10 usernames without the ability to scroll further down:

-cEmxGhXJTC5lm94QtB7bUkkATmsvPTw0cT9MyBW1CrsTiIpFQpc4Q_E_YgC497pETuBaQCTrbcicjzTyBxO01yU6sh5DJ2-H-SIUKzsoDhDoqb8h66iglUkYUcsT24EH1DLq9XDvJSQIIQN2OnTTAeVDQqiRtT2AmUSXcrnRYRX9FnPJW00lUYkz4Tfr15r4A2Xu-Rz1NDxPGdx44GXyTOi6j8mGDGbVCXaBHD-y96C2_mTRlEWPz5YevFCN1mYIOT3fKdjIvlKZkXZXFPVR98LHmrxqCe7kX5dQpMQjQdXJEgueyeIFMU3dsWJrTF0FXGJDVj0ezHaJS9Yi_ND1X8qP1HNqL-92_ieUeUCr5FLl2yZDsmY3P_ndGNAymTOKcnO6vLzHd68f_GfpXL3VdvDQr9ac_5V_BJVyq7Yg_r41H1nAvJOTJ9SeFtg62mYsxdx_Zj4fNiX_R1Laipb8gfWnQQIF8NeJkTDT9aD4m6_jydxUUvcmg5V3htsbk2UGiSg7KDdVoRvLNYWo23BYpcY8jQgh-1oO2l-XKlZbP8F8RZnbV8SJBh6vaxnUwIs02PZDBwEbQwChP95MdlSUf_SIlcDaG_KvpJ0PV4EsE_CGmNzti9S=w232-h551-no

    I had to enter up to 6 characters before your username is filtered out:

2. Just a minor observation, nothing major. Looks like we have a stowaway under Super Emoji... angry face wants to be promoted :tongue:

On a more positive note:

1. So glad to see the default text/background colour palette has increased! Now I need not try and click on "More Colors..." to find a deeper blue than what was previously available by default :D

2. Waiting for the therapeutic "like" to make its comeback ... along with other new reactions perhaps (or am I getting ahead of myself)? :wink:

It's killing me not to be able to "like":tongue:Omo but if we have to suffer for a while for some new reactions it won't be too bad.

Please note the big gaps between paragraphs, which happens automatically after editing.  Also my newest comment in this tread now appears ahead of my older comments.

 

Editing problems - lots of gliches trying to edit

 

 

 

Editing comment problem.  When I was in editing mode and highlighted a paragraph, the "Quote This"  arrow marker appears, like it does when you highlight someone else's comment to quote.  Also, for no reason I can tell sometimes when I start to highlight or write  in edit mode the page jumps to the top.

 

 

 

Another strange problem. While editing I moved some text which auto turned into the larger text from the header. I made the text smaller and inexplicably the text color was changed to a light blue which appears no where else in the comment and also changed from single line spacing to double line spacing. I tried and tried to change it the text back to black, but to no avail. It insists on staying light blue. I don't even see an option to get single spacing. If I try to change the font size now, boom, it just turns back into the huge title size again, but the color does turn  back to black!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In the 8th episode of 'Myongbyeoljeon', which was broadcasted at 9 pm on the 3rd night, the average rate of paid-for-viewing platforms with cable, satellite and IPTV was 6.4 percent and the highest was 7.3 percent. (Nielsen Korea, Paid Platform, National Standard)

It's image embedding that's wonky. The first time around never seems to work.

That's the original theme by our software provider under safe mode. By default, it is the custom Soompi theme that we are working on, bringing visual improvements and functionalities.

I prefer this to the custom one. Just a visual preference. It's more aesthetically pleasing.

I hadn't actually tried liking a post yet, liked yours and it works.

Agreed for the aesthetics. I also like it simplistic with the subtle blue header. Unfortunately, the safe mode won't carry any additional plugins and features that will be available in the custom one.
