- Rep

No longer available

update - Like - You can like a post by pressing the thumbs up button (right hand side of posts).

- Gif avatars / animated avatars

Functionality removed and will not be added

- Threas subscriptions

Functionality removed and is supposed to be fixed. You may find doesn;t work on certain browsers (IE and IE based browsers) but may work in other browsers.

- Smilies

The old smiles have been removed and replaced with some new ones, the old ones can still be accessed if you know the name of the file.

See hotukdeals.com/mis…207

- website url's turning to links

You need to now create a url, you can either put some text, highlight it and then press the chain based image in the editor.

or add the following to the post reply
[ url= domain.com /] link text [ /url ] (without spaces)

- Ignore user

This is no longer working (depending on browsers).

- Spam Posts

Seems to be not working, and you cannot report a thread and also spam it.

- Quoting images

Quotes of images don't work, cept smilies. Not sure if glitch or functionality

- Editing posts

No buttons to add links, images and text styling

- Text colouring

You can't change the text colour of your posts.

- Advanced search

No longer able to search via advanced to find threads started by certain users, but it does work by going in through their profile. This is a glitch.
Also not able to search via merchants, the drop down works for your searches for merchants and users, but then when you click the name of the user / merchant, it doesn't update the search box.

- Mark forum read

No longer able to mark forum read

- Leaving Feedback

Can't leave feedback for for a transaction in FS/ FT if the thread has been expired.



If you have anymore I will add them to the list, and a fix (if possible).

shortcuts ( and other stuff that I already cannot remember) by clicking on the # post number - gone

ability to both report and spam, plus I do not think that spam is working - gone

no option to quote an image

need to refresh before editing own reply works.

I don't know what the 'like' situation is; I haven't seen the blue banner for a while!

Yawn..this has been covered loads of times already



I couldn't find a thread saying every function that has gone without reading 1200 posts.

This will hopefully let people know what is missing and how to get around them.

I have quickly glanced through the main thread and added what I saw, but might have missed a few things, so getting people to add more is helpful.

Meh let him complain, as it bumps and might help reduce the constant crap threads of "I can't rep, I can't see my rep or My ego is lowering cos I can't see an online love message".

I just found if you directly type a link in your post it converts it to a link.. so you don;t the [ url ] [ / url ] bit

http://linkhere

lmao@rep, thanks for this thread its a good idea

Yup, but if you're editing a post, you don't get the buttons, so adding a link / image needs the shortcode

Ooh another one to add


True and true. Shame it doesn't work!!

We have no colours for text.

It's in feedback now (why mods?) but won't die as it's useful (not to you though). One post of all functionality = no more rep threads = win

The ability to see what deals you or someone else has posted. It's been replaced with the ability to see all threads they've posted, which I think erroneously fails to filter out Misc, Freedback, and FST threads.

Cheers, there are far more functions missing than I thought

Banned

no edit times will lead to big problems in the fs boards at some stage


also the no feedback on expired threads is not for the op, just those who have posted within thread, so if you started it it will appear in your list, if you didnt it wont appear in your posted in threads list

How does the thumbs up icon work? Presumably the number of clicks can be viewed by the writer of the post in question? Would be good to have a like/dislike function, with the results available to all

Is it just functions you are reporting here or do things like the following count?

If you click on a post that has a largish opening post, you get taken to the first post and have to scroll back to read the rest of the opening post.

Hi Phil

Just functionality really not site glitches (unless was a function). Yours would be just a glitch.
