Whats up.
Steve
why create a whole thread about this? the software cannot change back, we have moved from version 2 to version 3.

I posted a thread on how members can post comments on how to improve parts of the site

I suggest people only post a comment thats really gonna help the development and layout. Not how they dont like it and thats it. Not helping us develope a great user experience.

Can you tell me steve how to change the settings so that when i view a thread it not comeing up in list that i have to click on to see everyones replys.

Go to your settings - under 'Your Options' click 'Forums' and then change the drop down box under 'Topic Display Mode' to standard. Sounds like you're in Linear+ or Outline to me.

As an aside - Steve, this was much easier to change on the old board, I think you may need to add the option to every thread like it was on the old software.

i agree dan, i need to check a basic board to see if this is missing.

Fiestalad did you get this thread from the google search? because google seems to have spidered some linear threads which displays it in linear mode.

So the settings may already be Standard.

FiestaLad, Can you post the thread you are having problems with please?

cheers
fiesta_lad
Yeh got the page from google the problem iam haveing is when people reply to questions it comeing up in like a list so ive got to click on each answer to view it
DanGull
See above...
fiesta_lad
Tryed that dan still the same mate.
Jonny87
Yeah on the old boards once you accessed the forums through google it permanently changed the settings to linear, it doesn't go back on its own.

Fiesta Lad you need to change your setings back to standard
fiesta_lad
Right change it back to standard and this it what iam getting took a screen shot
Jonny87
It seems to me like the obvious thing to do would be to click where it says [b]"click here to stop filtering posts based on reputation"[/b]. Have you tried this?
Steve
thats weird.. never seen that before.

are you getting this on most threads now?
fiesta_lad
All the threads iam clicking on its werid.
Steve
ok, on a weird thread please copy and paste the url here for me please.
fiesta_lad
Hi all sorted now back to normal view its strange because before when i was changeing it back to standard it was not doing it log out log back in had another go and its worked now thank you all for help.

Well, first of all, I respect and appreciate all the effort laid out to make this website more fun but, sadly, I too find the new version quite far from being practical and user-friendly as I feel reluctant and unwilling to log-on. Somewhat elusive the site has become and visually complicated. Also, there are some display problems and misalignment of visuals and lines. As I understand there's no turning back technically, but I believe some arrangements can be performed to make the site a bit more close to what many of us would find familiar. Thank you.
fiesta_lad
It does take some getting used to a little playround with it and it seems ok ive even found the latest post button on the top right hand side of the screen behind facebook and twitter but its early days yet.
