Am I alone in finding it irritating that the thread title has been removed from the individual posts?
or,
is it just anno domini catching up with me and everyone else is happy with the lack of title?

agree about the 'well-known member'. . . what's wrong with 'member since . . . . (date)?

Much of the new usability that we had over the New Year has gone. Eg opening a 'new post' and then being able to see another new post without going back to the home page. Seeing who has posted a new post without opening (there are those members for whom I would not waste a click)
Most of those features I will try to bring back as they are reported. I'm still working primarily on the new custom theme whereas I believe most of you are just working with the Xenforo stock theme which won't have some of the features in the custom theme.

We are going to do our best to make sure you don't lose any features you want or need. I'm working on it every day and with a bit of look we'll soon be able to give you the custom theme and go from there.

I understand that it can be frustrating and we appreciate your patience while we get the site fully online again. Once you get used to the new software, you will find it's easy to use, has more features than the old vBulletin software, it much more secure, and substantially faster, :)

Glad you got rid of the vBulletin software
I joined their forum to ask a question and boy are they condescending buggers
I tried logging back on a few days later to see if anyone had answered my question only to find my password was "wrong"

Yes. It's like crickets in there these days.

When we have opened a thread and are reading a post with the idea of replying to it, or adding a comment, we cannot see the title of the thread ( so we are not sure if we should post on this thread or another one), can this be sorted please? We need to be able to see the thread title without having to scroll up to the top of the page.

At least one other member has made the same suggestion. I will be working on a fix for this but it is not a feature that is part of the core Xenforo software so it may take a while.

Thank you for your patience while we sort things out.

Looks like it'll require a template edit.......

Taken from this

You can add {$thread.title} to the post template and play around it with it until you get it styled/placed how you want it.

Exactly. I have just been busy with other issues but that's exactly what is required. There are a few ways to implement it, though; I'll figure out which one is best when I get to it.

Thank you for the link. That thread was for Xenforo 1.5.x and we are running version 2.2.x, which was a substantial rewrite of the software. However, the basic principles still apply. :)

This has now been fixed.

I switched to the Xenforo 2 default style which seems works great.

Are the other Styles/Themes going to give us more than the default?

I think the previous forum gave the thread title in the post reply box which made it easier to know what thread you were replying on, which I think is what IbrahimAbi is talking about.

I miss the members ‘Gallery’ section where we can post pics, videos etc.

IMO a great sharing section where other members become real people rather than just cyberspace objects.

Are there plans to reinstate?
