    Clicking "See more" in the "Postings" tab in profile pages should direct to the second page right away rather than showing the first page a second time and having the user manually skip it immeditealy afterward which will invariably be the case since the point of pressing "See more" in the first place is to proceed with reading the rest of the content, having already gone through the first page.
    Unfortunately not really practical, would take a fair bit of work. For one thing, the Postings page only lists the most recent 15 posts of the user, while search result pages like you get from clicking "See more" return 20 results per page. So the first page of that has 5 more posts at the end of it.

    @Callum is more directly involved in the design and layout as well, so I'll tag him.

    One example; I have been trying to format the table and every time I type 8) the forum silently turns it into an emoticon. Doesn't seem like there's anything like the [nobbc][/nobbc] tag from the old system, there was also a checkbox to toggle if you wanted automatic smiley conversion, now it does it every time.
    The replacement for [nobbc] from SMF is [plain] in XenForo. Example:
    [plain]("plain" 8)[/plain] (normal 8)
    ("plain" 8) (normal :cool:

    Forums migrated to new hosting

    We've completed our migration to a new hosting setup for our forums. Everything should work the same, but it's always possible a problem or two might have popped up as a result. Let us know if you run into any problems. One known temporary issue: Searches on the forum will not return much yet...

    Has the old forum been closed?
    Look at the thread just below this.

    Old SMF forum backup closing down

    The old SMF backup is now closed. Links to any parts of it (boards, topics, posts, sections) will now redirect to the related part of the forum here.

    Old SMF forum backup closing down

    We've maintained a read-only backup of our old SMF forums since our conversion to XenForo, which happened back in January of 2020, well over 2 years at this point. One reason was to give people a chance to back up important old Private Messages, since PMs couldn't be transferred over to XenForo...

    Any chance the notifications in groups could be disabled by default? Or at least an window is given to ask if you want them to be enabled or not? It's just a little bit irritating joining a group then receiving 10 emails in an hour because I forgot to disable the notifications.
    This should finally be changed now. When you join a group or a group you're in adds a new discussion forum, you won't automatically be set to Watching those forums.

    Sometimes I miss the function, to list the search results by reverse date order, so oldest posts first. Would that be difficult to implement?
    Sorry, but there's no apparent way to do that in XenForo. At the very least, you can use the advanced search form to limit the results to a specific timeframe.

    Is there any news about old forum theme? Is it available right now or are we still waiting for that?
    I think it's on hold at the moment, @Callum has been busy with other stuff.

    For some reason Vimeo links (embeds) have stopped to be supported even though they are listed as approved. I had to paste a plain URL and I must add that I had had no problem with Vimeo links prior to the latest XenForo update.
    I checked your post history and see this Vimeo URL:
    I'm not that familiar with Vimeo, rarely even seen videos from it, but I checked their video listings and the videos listed there all seem to be formatted like this, without the extra bit at the end:
    I tried that video link and it embedded fine.

    I tried trimming your video link down like that, but it just shows "video not found". I'm guessing that bit at the end is a key, and access to this particular video is restricted to those who have that key on the end?

    If that's the case, I can at least report it to the XenForo devs to fix their Vimeo embed code to support those restricted access (or whatever they're called) video URLs.

    This problem with certain Vimeo embeds should now be fixed with the latest XenForo update.

    There is no option to receive a notification for every reply in a thread. You will receive a notification for the first new reply, then, you will not receive any further notifications until you visit the thread again. After that, it will again notify you of the next new reply.

    When you click on a profile to see someone's posting history, you may get his posts from the last couple of days, then BANG the list continues directly to 2011 or 2010. Why did you delete a decade, Janus? It wasn't a great decade, but the posterity has a right to know how it sucked.
    I'm guessing the search index was being rebuilt when you checked. Should be back now.

    Groups on the forum now have a little more functionality to their discussion forums. Group admins and moderators can now move threads between the group's discussion forums if they have more than one. The option will show up in the "..." menu in the upper right when viewing a thread in a group discussion forum, if you're an admin or moderator of that group.
    Note that the move dialog for this feature does have a minor oddity that it also lists the forum which the thread is already in as a possible destination forum, but it doesn't actually cause any problems as far as I can tell. That might get fixed at some point.

    On another note, there have been a few odd server hiccups every once in a while lately which I think might be due to the search result limit being increased to 1000 results, so for now I've taken it back down to 400 max results (twice the original standard limit) to see if that helps.

    Taleworlds not compliant to their own privacy policy/GDPR and more.

    But @Janus do you know by any chance if TW has plans to adhere to their own privacy policy?
    I can't speak to that, as that stuff is handled directly by the devs. Since you tagged Dejan and MArdA, they should be aware of your complaint and concerns.
