Well, since there is no separate editor/screen for replying to posts, what would something like a cancel button do in that scenario?

The New Post screen does have a cancel button, btw

well i dunno, clean the window and close it... does it? can't seem to find it...

Ah, another reason Firefox is becoming a minority in terms of browser usage. What an utterly paranoid, stupid option to have in a browser. For decades designers begged for having more control over fonts on websites, and finally in the past 5 years or so we have them and work well, and Mozilla comes along and donks it all up.

Glad to see you got it sorted out - I'm still researching the Edit BBCode option...

Oh, and that quote reducer is working quite nicely I see! :smile:

this is an apple-user mindset joyrex. it's a great future that gives control to the user (though it's on by default). that stuff is one of the reasons non-normies prefer firefox.

btw, the alternate color between forums is misleading, i know bold text marks unread stuff but the greenish ones always fool me into thinking there's new stuff to reed... and the white-ish vice versa...

I think you'll find the editor with a few more options now 😄

Have you tried the Tomorrow's Harvest theme yet? Link to change themes is at the bottom of the forum index.

LOL @ "apple-user mindset" and "non-normies" - I understand the flexibility and customization aspects, but for it to be on by default is just wrong (and not at least let users know of the option either way).

BTW I used to be a huge Firefox user before it became more and more bloated, and consumed too much memory, etc. It's gotten a lot better since version 60+, but it's just lost the plot at this point IMO...

Which theme? I haven't done anything to WATMM Classic as of yet; trying to sort out a few of these issues peristing... and just saying "looks like ass" isn't very helpful - is there actually something besides aesthetics that is preventing you from using the site on mobile? That would be what I would want to put priority to first.

i always preferred the classic watmm, the others are too fancy... i wish you had a pretty basic/clean one... like for mobile but for desktop...

yeah editor is coming back to what it used to be step by step, cheers!

i don't see the cancel button for the new post screen... actually i don't have a new post screen, it posts on the same screen... see below...

when it's on it means it uses website's fonts, not the other way around.

I meant when creating a new topic, sorry. I hear what you're saying about a basic, no frills theme - working on it!

Ah, sorry - got it. That's good - I was worried they were getting a bit too paranoid with 'user control'. Odd though he had it on by default (unless he turned it on at some point and forgot).

I'd really like a very clean but dark theme. It's easier on the eyes

Uh, it's been this way since, I dunno - 15+ years now?

Just to be fair - what would you suggest? People always have said "get rid of subforums! get rid of Featured Artists!", but nobody really has suggested a better alternative in regards to keeping artist-specific discussion separate from general discussion so one doesn't bury the other based on activity/inactivity.

This new layout is so wide and all over the place, I wish there was a button to make it compact somehow, or collapse... whatever. This post was made by less eye movements gang

Look on the bright side. It most likely won't affect the quality of your posts.

The site is responsive, and currently the width is 85% of your browser's width (or screen width if on mobile). We may consider a fixed-width version although that sort of defeats the responsiveness aspect...

mine seems to be only about 60% of the browser width - I haven't changed any settings or anything that I'm aware of? It seems to be just right.

When I do cmd/cntl +/- it seems to go a little too big or a little too small. Can you in/decrease by half?

honestly overall things seem pretty good, at least on my end. there will no doubt be a few things to iron out but it's defs a step up from the old forum.
