I'm unable to click reply until I reset this about:config pref. The first thing I noticed, though, was the error msg "Looks like your connection to Netgate Forum was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect." in a little pop-up alert in the lower right-hand corner of the page.
Yeah prob - I took it from jimp answer that prob just some tweaking that needs to be done because that sections permissions are different.
I would think being able to edit your reply should be allowed yes.
Probably yes, because the last part after the "." is more than 3 character long. I don't have that problem with a lot of sites, but some big company like one of my old cell phone member portal didn't like the .info
So when I tried to register to the forum and I got an invalid email address I didn't look further and used my .com alias instead.
Could be a time zone issue, but it's hard to say. I don't think anything changed on this server, though we were verifying NTP on a bunch of servers yesterday, so it's possible the system clock was off on this box. All of the timestamps appeared correct to me, though.
The default for everyone, logged in or not, is to put topics in order newest to oldest. I opened up a different browser and hit the forum and I spot checked a few categories but did not see any that were sorted oldest to newest.
If you are seeing "old" topics they are likely stickies and not recent posts. Look for the pushpin icon next to the topic title. If you can link to a specific example of a category showing old non-sticky posts first when logged out, I can look into seeing what is different about that one.
So if someone fiddles around with the colors it’s probably not getting any better…
As I understand the Skins/Themes, one would only fiddle around in the default skin for that. Others would have to be manually added. But as those probably use some CSS classing (I hope!) that should be possible.
I'd also like something like a dark-default theme but perhaps not so dark as slate. But something along the lines of Solarized/Solarized Dark. So that one has the option to have a light and a dark version without the light one being "white only".
Something like this palette: http://ethanschoonover.com/solarized
@ramosel said in Help! Can't find old personal /private messages after forum upgrade:
I had a lot of really good information in my PMs from the devs and from package writers… gone! with no warning.
And where did you ever get the impression that data on some public forum is safe, secure? How much are you paying for this forum access that you believe that netgate/pfsense and you formed some sort of contract that your PM would be there day to day?
Lets get real here! ;)
I also have multiple appliances, gold member and tester - and very active on the forums for 10 some years. I can tell you for sure I never had impression that my PMs were going to be there tmrw.
I don't pay google for gmail either - so i have no impression that gmail is going to be there tmrw either.
I can understand your visual problems. Then I would suggest you nicely bring up that the current themes are not very user friendly for people with visual problems - I am quite sure you will get not only support from the netgate/pfsense side in working on a theme that is easier to read, but also suggestions from other users with the same sort of issues and what they use on their end to help. There many tools to rework a websites visual themes for different reasons regardless of what the site owners layout is.
Calling staff Bozo's is not going to get you any help that is for sure.
@johnpoz said in Tagging posts:
Unless there is clear cut document giving sort of template and examples of what tags to use it can become pretty useless with just all kinds of freeform tags.
You're making it way more complicated than it needs to be. If you start requiring documentation etc it'll never happen. Mods are trusted members of the community. I say we let them exercise their discretion.
Yeah that should be fixed to refer to the new version. It isn't on 2.4.3 though, just 2.4.4 and now apparently 2.3.5-p2. I've just pushed a package update that will show up shortly to fix that.

Any update on taptalk addition. Can't find this forum in search.
It looks like Tapatalk harvest's user information from the database, so we definitely won't be using it.
for details, even if they are a bit old now.
Here is the official name meaning ;)
Scott came up with pfSense, pf being the packet filtering software used, as in making sense of pf.
After trying pfsense now for a few days I am really impressed. Then I click on this post, see the text scrolling along and I think … wow only on a pfsense website
It's great how pfsense people go that extra mile just to give the best they can LOL i will be learning soon how to make that scrolling text happen hahahahaha
(sigh of relief to have found some great software ) phwwwwwww , excellent, I am in the right place
