Pic uploader appears to be working normal and same as before..
I'm getting a lot of red X's on attachments. Not everything, just random ones. And since I can't see them I have no clue as to the type(gif,wv,jpeg,etc).
Btw, I mean: not me trying to post but reading someone else's post.

I like the new look Dave. Functionality isn't too far off the old version so it's not too tough to get comfortable and navigate and that's important... none of us like change, but if we experience improvements as we settle in we're pleased, right. Kudos for placing the "Post Thread" in an easy to spot location.... man did I struggle finding that in old version ... Granted I'm tech challenged. Happy Inmate here.....

Something I noticed is that when I read a thread then go back to the main forum “lounge” or “P&G” etc it takes me to top of thread list, not back to where I was when I clicked on the thread. Any way to change that so I’m not scrolling through all of the thread I’ve already read again?

This is what I'm talking about. Getting quite a few of these which I never had issue with before.

I Like the "Start new thread" at the top of each sub-section. :cool:

Most likely saves a little bit of navigation.

Any chance when a change is made it could be reported/announced so we know about more awesomeness? :)

I may be over looking the location of the RDP online Store here but at this time I'm unable to find any direct link to the RDP "Store" to buy any RDP Gear? Just noticed this after the new post was made by [U]RDSwagette[/U] of the following post, #10

In the mean time of this issue being repaired, here's a link to the RDP store, https://shop.riverdavesplace.com/

@RiverDave , If at all possible you may want to consider adding your new RDP trailer hitch receiver covers to the store too as I didn't noticed them while looking around the online store.;)

Weird 🤔 I asked a question a while ago that is not related to this thread: "New software Bugs / Fixes / Preferences" but under "Contact Us" and I have not yet received a response, so maybe it's related to "New software Bugs / Fixes / Preferences" or is it ? 😬

@RiverDave , what happened to being able to edit/DELETE our THREADS retroactively? only titles seem to be editable. When in the edit post mode there is no longer a delete thread option.

I’ll look into the unsolved issues again tomorrow. We have been working on the classifieds and some other sfuff.

Members haven’t been able to edit thread titles for sometime (you can thank Grads for that) and have never been able to delete threads.

if you can edit thread titles again it’s something the admins overlooked.I can leave it like that And see how it goes

Try to highlight your text... its difficult to see what youve highlighted the color should be something bright. Its black with like a bold font only.
This one here remains an issue for me. Very hard to see highlighted text vs non for any C & P or editing purposes.

Why are all pictures in FB thread small and you have to click each one ? Did I accidentally hit a button ?

When it converted over to the new software it made everything thumbnails.. I'm not gonna go through and enlarge them all it would take me literally two weeks.. LOL

I can ask if there is a mass way to do it, but I doubt it.

Can you have the ads loaded faster at the bottom of the page ?

When I click reply, the box to type in comes up - I then touch the box to type in and about the same time the ad from the bottom of the page appears in the same spot - so I end up hitting an ad and being diverted to the ad web site.

I can say for certain your ad clicks will be going up and it will be a great selling tool for you to charge more for the advertising - the reality is for me, I have seen the mortgage web site and the bodyshop web site (etc) a number of times only to click out as fast as I can because it’s not what I was trying to do.


EDIT / ADD - now that I'm on my laptop - everytime I get to the bottom of a thread I scroll down to hit the "lounge" tab to return to the thread list and I keep hitting an ad because they don't load as fast as the other content and they pop up just as Im clicking "lounge"
For the love of god please fix this it’s driving me crazy!

This happened on the old software, but it is still happening on the new software: I do not receive an alert on a thread I am 'watching' after a certain amount of time. Is this by design?

Hey @RiverDave I have a question about the new classifieds section. Do you know if the numbers in parenthesis next to the boat manufacturers indicate how many of that type are listed for sale?

Asking because If I click Hallett and update the filter, it shows three boats yet the parenthesis indicates five boats.

As much as I try to pause - I’m clicking that ad 90% of the time !
@RiverDave

Another thing I cant get used to yet - I like not have 2-3 returns for separation of a thought or paragraph. When I do that it does not make the first letter capitol anymore. Now I aways have to go back and cap my first letter. Very inconvenient.

This delayed add popping up at the bottom of the page is still a pain in my ass.

Using chrome videos don't work. The video tool bar appears and I can hear sound, but no video. I know a lot of other inmates are having the same issue.

A lot of videos that are uploaded to RDP are not visible on a PC. Those that due require some serious buffering and its not due to the end user internet speeds. Any way to fix this?
