Not really the whole page but only few (3-4) new questions. I think you mixed it with "Last Post"?

Wow! this is really great approach. I know that I'm very late to the party, but let me comment now. Today is the first day I visit JavaRanch, after this migration. Actually this is a really successful and great migration from old UBB software to the new JForum software. Personally I like this implementation, including the new set of emotions, the 'preview' feature, and especially the private message notification feature, and the quick reply feature. In addition to that I found that there are lot of new features implemented for this new site.

Finally, I would like to thank Jeanne, Ernest, Paul, and everyone else who helped to make this great transition. Thanks to Paul Wheaton for providing this great service for free.

Hey why does the last post column in the list of posts have such large font. Is it temporary or permanent. If it is permanent, then I think it looks very weird so please please change it.

Thanks...

Hi, If we notice something that might need improvement in the new forum system, to where do we report this? (email, forum, etc.)

I mean, if we notice something that is a possible bug, to whom do we report this?

(An example is the attached print-screen; in my 'My Posts', one topic is displayed twice.)

That's a list of posts, not a list of threads. The two posts you made to that thread are listed separately.

What is the limit of greenhorn title after the upgrade?? Earlier it was 40 posts. If it's still 40, then I think this user needs him account to be fixed

Yep, it's still 40 posts. That must have slipped through during the migration. Thanks for the heads up, we'll get that fixed shortly.

When I reply to a topic in a particular forum, and then return to that forum's topic overview, the 'new post indicator' and 'last post' information for the topic aren't updated.
I have to explicitly update the browser cache for the overview page in order to get a correctly updated view. Anyone else experiencing any cache related problems?


Am I the only one experiencing this problem, because it's really starting to bug me.
I guess it could be proxy server related, although I didn't experience any such problems when visiting with the old forum, or any other forum for that matter.

I did experience some "slowness" during the transition -- but everything is running fine for me now. (and I assuming fine for most of us, from the lack of other complaints).

Can you elborate a bit? Are you saying that you posts are not posted right away? Or the icons are not updated right away?

Well, if I reply to this thread and return to the Ranch Office overview page (using the Ranch Office breadcrumb link) the "Last Post" information for this thread will not reflect that my post was added. It will keep displaying the name of the user that replied before me - you in this case. Though, my reply definitely is added to the thread right away, because if I immidiately view the last page of the thread my reply is right there. Its just that the Ranch Office thread overview page isn't refreshed correctly (nor is the main forum overview page). Until I force a browser refresh (CTRL-F5 in IE7) that is.

Edit: Ok, nevermind. It's definitely a proxy issue, because I posted this reply at home, and didn't encouter the problem. However, at work I do encouter it all the time, but as I'm behind an HTTP proxy there, that must to be the cause of the problem. Somehow. Still, weird...

Well today I was searching for a topic in the SCJP forum but couldn't find it through search facility. SO I decided to look for it manually. But I think the pagination right now is very bad. It only lets you navigate to previous and next page apart from the first 3 and last 3 pages. It is a big pain. Although I was able to figure out the URL scheme and used values in the URL to navigate directly to any page that I liked. Am I missing something or is this the only way to navigate??

I also experienced the same as Jelle most of the time, though I haven't changed any settings (which are same as when the old forum software was running) and I do have a proxy as well (but it was there previously as well). Most of the time when I replied it redirected to the current thread which I posted but it does not reflecting the latest post. Most probably an proxy issue I guess.

Exactly, I'm not aware of an changes to our company's proxy either, and because I never experienced this issue on the old forums I find it a bit odd.

The new-post icons are computed on the server by our new forum software; with UBB, they were computed with Javascript inside your browser. The server-side ones are actually more accurate, but they are subject to page-cache issues such as you're describing. The old client-side ones were often wrong, too, but in a different way, and caches didn't matter.

As far as page caching: can't help you there. For most people, things work as you'd expect. I understand that the old system worked differently for you, but it's definitely an issue on your end, not ours. Perhaps it was the "cgi-bin" in the URL that made your proxy/firewall/page cache not cache the old forum listing pages.

Sorry no one replied over the weekend. We looked into the issue and the good news is that your bookmarks (along with everyone else's) are safe, they're just not being displayed properly. They will reappear soon!

There seems to be some problem when you quote someone who has written some code. This can be seen here...

Great . Someone pointed out correctly that the problem doesn't come when you quote someone. But when you edit your post which contains some code but its great to hear that it is fixed. I'm waiting for the next rollout
