I just saw something new to me... under the glasses that are attached to many pictures is the + symbol.

What is the significance of the + symbol attached along with the glasses?

It signifies that the image is larger than your current view of it.

In the old forum the "Last Post" header was a hyperlink - it would sort by newest post / reply at the top - it no longer is a hyperlink -

So is this ever going to be able to be done again ?

Makes it MUCH easier to see new things in the For Sale forum. Thanks in advance.

I think the "Similar Threads" window at the bottom of the thread is a feature I miss.

Of course it was used a lot when people posted a question and you could just say "look at Similar thread" to see who else asked this question.

But also, it was helpful when you found a thread that you were interested in, you could find others like it.

It's not really my business, but there is searching available, is that not good for searching similar threads?

"Similar threads" had in vBulletin only few guesses which often were totally off, search covers it all with a possibility to filter and alter keywords.

One of the advantages to the "Similar Threads" feature was that it was similar to a search, but the results were one thread per result.

Maybe it is how I am using the search feature, but I have found sometimes that if I search for a fairly common keyword, instead of getting one result that points to a thread where the keyword appears in multiple posts, I will get an entire page or more of results, all from the same thread.

Another nice thing that is a bit harder to explain was that the related posts feature led me deeper into the "old threads". Every time I am here it isn't to attempt to gather information on a specific topic. Sometimes it is just to do some casual reading. There are times that I don't mind being led off on a tangent through one of those "related threads" that were "totally off". I would get to the end of an interesting thread, and click on one of those "related threads" just because. Especially if it was an older thread that I may not have ever read that had an interesting title.

Have we lost the edit history of posts that were written in the old V-Bulletin format? When I go back and read threads from last year, or the year before, etc, I do not see, at the bottom of the post, "last edited Sept 22, 2013........."

Is there some setting I need to adjust to be able to see which threads were edited, and how many times they were edited? Or, has this info simply been lost with the transfer to AMASS?

Also, when I search for old posts, the search tool runs out after the last 1,000 posts that fit my search criteria. If I want to look for a post that another member wrote 3 or 4 years ago, I have been unable to find it using the search tool (if the member writes a couple thousand posts a year). Without having to go off-site, how can I find older posts in a quick, convenient way?

Don't get me wrong - I am not complaining. I think AMASS is the best discussion-forum software in world history! But I am currently unable to find all of the info on old posts that I would like to see. And all of the nitty-gritty information from old, old posts is actually quite important to me! I am constantly remembering things that people wrote here several years ago, and wanting to look them up to see exactly how the member worded their thoughts. Or, more frequently, I forgot some of the details of what was said in some old, old post, and I want to look it up so that I can refresh my memory and re-learn what I have forgotten over time.


"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

Tom, if you click the date subcategory in the search bar it will allow you to choose the "Date from" and "Date to". So, if you wish to see old posts then simply choose old dates.:-)

I have a question. How many times can you edit a post?
There's a scavenger hunt thread that they want to edit the first post once a month.

Thanks,
Stina

As long as the thread isn't locked you can edit it as often as your heart desires.

Thanks, a few of us weren't sure so I thought I'd just ask. :)
