Great. Now it turns out that Booger Presley WAS a sockpuppet after all.

You made liars out of a few of us, Dalyn.

Hi folks. How do you set it so that when you click on a thread it goes to the next new post instead of the first post in that thread every time? Thank!

Use the green arrow at the front of the post on the far left.

Oh my goodness, thanks! I don't think I would have ever figured that out. Spent an hour trying to figure it out last night. And if there's no green arrow, no new posts! Thank again!

Quote:Just wondering, is it possible to link an old user account to a current active email and also change the main username at the same time? Old email I used to originally sign up is long gone and inaccessible, plus I ended up hating the username I was stuck with as it was a tribute to someone who turned out to be a monster. Not a big deal or anything, if not possible then I can just use this new account instead. Thanks

Gee, I wonder what that's like.

Honestly, though, I've come to terms with my CHUD/Trouble City handle. I justify it by the fact that it's not actually a reference to the man/monster himself, but to a parody of him that he hated and cease-and-desisted into oblivion. So for now, at least, against all good sense and decency, I remain Curiosity Cosby.

Switching to dark mode
Chrome/Firefox: Owl or Dark Reader plugin. Personally, I tried both, and they work just fine. Dark Reader seems to have more customizable options and it seems a bit easier to customize the pages that use it and the pages that don't. Just search Google and it's very easy to find and install. Once installed, you'll an icon next to your search bar that allows you to change settings with.
Safari: Turn off the Lights plugin. This only seems to work with OS 10.12 and higher. I can't seem to find a different plugin. And I believe Dark Mode is too "system-wide" to rely on it, but you may have more success with that.

Navigating to new posts in threads you've already visited
From the list of topics, there should be a green arrow next to the topic name. This should show up when new posts have been added since your last visit to the thread. Some people have expressed that this does not work all the time, however.

Quick Reply vs. New Reply
Quick reply is fickle for me, so I don't use it often anyway, but if you want to attach an image or have full customization capability in your post, click on the New Reply button.

Image embedding
Once you click on "New Reply," go to below the post box, and you'll see a section for Attachments. You can click on Browse, find your image, and then click on Add Attachment. You'll then have the option to Remove or Insert Into Post. If you click Insert, you'll see it pop up at the top of the text box and it will say something like, "attachment=25." As long as you copy that entire bit, you can move it wherever you want in the message.

Spoiler Tag
As far I understand, this is not included in the default settings for MyBB, but it can be added to the CSS. I would imagine we can get that once the boards are running more smoothly. I suppose for now we just need to be clear and considerate about spoilers.

Well, that was a stressful moment; glad I found my way through. Now back to being buried with work, with the occasional stolen lurk of a page now and then! Keep up the good Chewing, people. 


And thanks, Nick! And Nick's web guy(s)!

installed the Dark Reader add-on on FF58. Working good so far and a bit easier on the eyes.

Admittedly, I am not a fan of the color orange but the DR add-on has a slider that allows you to de-tint/destaturate the orange so you can go black/white/grayscale if you should choose to. If they had a hue slider in there to change selective colors (back to green...I like green) we'd be good to go.

It's worth checking out.

How do you post pictures? So we're all ready when Trump's dickpics leak.

Click the Preview Post button instead of the Post Reply button and it will give you more menu options.

Also, you can add attachments. But I use the Image Link option and add the preferred size (trying to keep the images in the "medium" sized range).

At the very bottom when posting there is an attachment section. You can choose the image from your computer then click the ADD on the far right. After you add it you then have the option to insert it into your post! If you dont insert it into your post it will by default just show the image at the bottom of your post....

Hope that helps

New board seems okay. I don't mind white and orange but the posts are *really* white, to the point of looking kind of empty, a bit more shading for visual variety wouldn't hurt.

Is there no way of showing rep on individual posts? Seeing which posts are clicking with people was always the main point of interest with rep for me.

And I guess there's no way of getting capital letters back in usernames?

~I've installed the Firefox add-on of this 'dark mode',quick and easy, puts a little on/off button on the top edge of browser. Gotta say I wasn't loving the white of new site, and this makes it look very much like the old Chud design with the whole page's white being changed to black, with white lettering and orange borders and highlights. This will make me more comfortable in browsing--was having trouble reading stuff. So thanks to all for the turn on.

Bug ?

I was in the process of writing a reply and noticed the 'get more' option on the smilies to the left of the main text box. Clicking it is a dead link and just brings up a blank page.
