Thanks for the post! The page jumping on a new post sounds problematic. I’ll definitely pass that one to the forum developers. Likewise with the tracking popup closing on a new post. We’re also going to work on reducing the data usage for mobile users on our end, and will also talk to the Discourse team to try to get it lowered even more.
To reply or reach the bottom of a long chat, you should be able to jump to the bottom of the page by clicking on the green numbered box on the bottom right. It will let you jump to a specific post, or the top, or the bottom.
I think the headings arent supposed to be sortable in the “Top” section - I think that’s limited to showing the threads with the most posts. However if you go into a category’s topic listing or click on “Latest”, those headings should be sortable.
And the “New Member” setting is because we havent moved over any data from Lines. Discourse is 3rd party software that we’re hosting on our own server. It has a system to allow us to use TouringPlans.com login info as the login info for the forum, but it doesnt allow us to copy over any other info like amount of Lines posts, Lines join date, etc. There are post caps on a user in their first 24 hours, and a few other limitations (like image uploading) when a user is at “Level 0” which is easy to advance out of. After you get through this, you should advance to level 1, which is the normal user threshold, without limits. It’s in place to prevent people who join just to spam the forum quickly.
Thanks for all the feedback! Not only is our forum very new here, but the software itself is barely 2 years old as well, so its constantly being refined. They’re constantly making updates though, especially when users find bugs! So keep on sending in feedback! It can only help us get better!
