If you have a question about this new forum software, this is the place and time :) A small disclaimer, I will need to sleep from time to time (slept 4 hours during last 30 hour update process :)) so replies will not come instantly :-D

There are some KNOWN ISSUES:

Registration is closed util mail server has been tested and validated.

Forum does not email out anything (like notifications).

Searching for images does not get all results yet. Not all images are verified yet, and search "knows" it and rejects those images. The crawler will run

Gear database is surely missing some items, there is another thread for those in this forum.

Some gear may be in a wrong categories, please report those (or use the feedback link or PM me).

MISC FEATURES IN OLD POTN WHICH ARE NOT AVAILABLE/DONE IN NEW FORUMS

- PM sending: no CC and no BCC

- PM receipts are not optional

- Follow (subscribe to) forum (maybe later)

- Email functions like email notifications (to be done selectively later)

- no "mark forums read" command

- no quick reply (embedded reply editor opens in 1 sec.)

- no automatic follow thread, when you reply/quote a post in unfollowed thread you are asked if you'd like to, after you submit the reply. Each thread page has a "FOLLOW THREAD" command available.

Member settings that are not there any more (all for a good reason, we can discuss those later):

- thread display mode selection
- posts per page selection
- thread display cut off by age selection
- start of week selection
- PM on/off selection (maybe later)
- prevent receiving PMs from all but buddies and mods (maybe later)
- thread follow notification mode selection
- DST correction (is now automatic)
- Message editor interface selection (always bbcode)
- Forum skin selection
- Instant messaging selection (will have Facebook/Google+ later)
- "Image edit and repost permission" setting has been removed, now all reposted images need a permission from owner (if owner does not explicitly say that it is allowed).
- birthday settings (maybe later)

Other:

- signatures are always shown
- links are always automatically made live
- custom subscription folders are not carried to new forums, in AMASS followed thread browser is grouped per forum.
- PM folders are not carried to new forums, you have to set up them manually.
Subscribed thread list is not automatically imported, you'll need to use "import subcribed threads" tool to do it (link in FYEO)
- attachments (now called hosted photos) can only be photos, no zips, pdfs etc any more. There are plenty of dropbox type sites to host other files.

A fantastic culmination of all of Pekka's hard work, and mere testing from some interesting members.

You should all applaud Pekka on his contribution to photography and forums for this. Thanks Pekka, and welcome to the new forum!

There was a post on the preview information page on how to get the original fonts back.. I can't seem to find option that now. Any pointers to where it might be hidden?

Sorry, no such settings are available, a long time ago I decided to drop such settings. Think of like an Apple product ( = "we know best") ;-)a :)

Why no "mark forums read" command? I'm old enough that I sometimes forget what I have read...

I saw that you had done that, not sure if it's performance related? It would be nice to have back eventually.. very handy for browsing the 'sample' threads with hundreds of pages. Just a thought. :)
