Hi, having a few problems with downloads from the Cyanogen green V5 post. Wanted to download Kalt Kaffe's GPS fix and it links me back to the main forum window? Had downloaded it before but after partitioning sd card without wiping lost all my new downloads. Hope this can be sorted as am quite partial to a bit of Geocaching and keeps rebooting. Many thanks, Jimsie

I use Firefox 5 on the Mac, it works great not "bloated slow and unstable". It doesn't come that way out of the box, users add the bloat. Chrome is a great browser, except for one thing. It only lets you use one search engine in the search field. On the other hand, I have several set up for Firefox 5, google.com. .co.uk .it bing.

I have a question about the mobile site, how do I switch back to the mobile version in my ANDROID browser Miren? I have cleared the cache, made sure the user agent is set to default, I copied the URL of the site from the built in browser, which shows the mobile version, to Miren. But I still get the full site. I have looked for a mobile site button but I can find it. Can anyone help me?

Anil

The Mac version of Firefox, while still a huge memory hog in my experience, does seem more performant.

re: switching to the mobile site, on the right there is a 'Skin and Language' box which should let you switch to the skin you desire.

I too am finding it dficult to navigate the forum due to the change. I just like to peruse the new posts to keep upto date but can I find this option ? Will someone puit me right.

This SHOULD be the 'View New Content' button on the right, but it doesn't appear to work as expected. I'll look into it.

Which post are you trying to reply to? I'll try to replicate it.

This is a cloudflare security system. I'll verify the security level and look at making the wording clearer.

Confirmed, I will look into this.

Could you link the topic in question so I can investigate? Thanks!

I'm really not a fan of such fancy themes, they are unnecessarily fancy and just make it harder to use. Even things like lightbox are annoying because you can't middle click to open in a new tab and while waiting for the image to load you are forced to look at a blank screen and small spinner. If you middle click a normal image you can continue reading while waiting for the image to load in the background tab. Even if it's a small image, you must wait those 1-2 seconds for the lightbox animation to play.

A million times this. I have an extension that shows a linked image if I mouse over its thumbnail so it's pretty annoying when websites implement their own system for opening images.
And pinned topics definitely need more differentiation.

Not completely sold on the new design but it's certainly more modern. Still, I'll be sticking to simple for now I think.

Hi Paul, thanks for the reply, clicking on Skin & Language brings up the selector with 3 choices. Unless I am missing something there is not an option to select the Mobile version of the site.

Thanks, Anil.

Hey Anil!

I just switched on 'visibility' for the mobile skin, so it should work now.

I just updated a misconfiguration in the search server (Sphinx, which rocks btw!) and topic search and viewing new content now works correctly. Hurrah!

Hi

Thank you Paul for the great site refresh.

My only request is for a page navigation toggle button on mobile site skin using Dolphin Browser HD. So i can move around 50 page threads in Liquid forum. The Add reply button could be squeezed to accommodate a drop down with a first or last or enter desired page #

Skin and Language selector in Firefox on WindowsXP gives me 3 options:simple, Modaco M5 and Modaco.


Thanks again.

It's just moved ... I didn't notice it on the right there until somebody pointed it out, was used to having 2 separate search boxes. It is better this way.

Apache Solr rocks even more than Sphinx, if you're looking for a search server, btw. http://lucene.apache.org/solr/

There is a bit of low contrast on the text on the right, on the titles for each block. Might be why I didn't notice where the search box had moved to. It'd be better if those titles were lighter, white, or just off, it'd make them more visible & easier to read. The rss icon is almost invisible.

While I'm being picky, didn't the hoodie have a beard before? Now he just has a deformed chin.

Also, somebody added me as a friend, without me having to authorise their request. I'm not sure what purpose having 'friends' on this site has, but it should be a two way thing, or the name changed to 'followers' or something like that.

Overall it's looking pretty good so far, an improvement.

Yes, I'll add this!

Yeah, you're right, that text on the right should be clearer, ditto the RSS icon should be 'oranged'. ;)

Yup, no more beard, he's an odd looking chap eh? :D

re: friends, you can find some settings on reciprocation here.

My signature is not displayed properly and I see lines of code relating to size.

Quick edit to remove offending code has sorted that one out.


i dont like it, color sucks, too many crap on the screen, the top is overfilled with things that nobody read, too much space between line, waste of time to scroll down just to see there is nothing.
COME BACK BABY OR I QUIT YOU!!!!

YEAH I WANT TO DIVORCE NOW<<!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yowza! I was just about to post how i've made a bunch of changes (inlining images etc.) that have reduced load on Firefox (in our tests at least). How did you do that? :blink:
