LQ Code Upgrades


We recently rolled out a code upgrade here at LQ, and I wanted to outline a couple of new features that have been added. This is the first in a series of upgrades that will be coming to LQ in the near future. As always, your feedback on the changes and suggestions for future updates are appreciated.

Member Profile Updates

Your Member Profile has been completely overhauled and redesigned. The page includes much more information and you're now able to customize the look of your page. You're able to comment not only on your page, but on other members profiles as well. You have a quick overview of members who you've friended and this is the beginning of us adding more community oriented features into LQ.

To access your profile page, click "Your Profile" under Quick Links, or access it from your MyLQ page.

User-Created Social Groups

You now have the ability to create social groups that other members with similar interests can join. This will allow you to easily connect with other members that use the same distribution for example. Socials groups have many additional features, such as their own dedicated public messaging.

To access this feature, click "Social Groups" in the main LQ sidebar nav.

Jeremy,

I still have to scroll horizontally in threads with code tags. Example:

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ckware-636389/

Vertical scrolling is okay; horizontal scrolling is incorrigible.

My screens are 1680x1050 and 1440x900.

I'm glad there is a reset button on the customization option - I managed to gross myself out pretty fast.

I'm finding LQ almost unusable lately - having to constantly reload a page (even my responses). Takes (several) minutes per update. Having to wait forever for cachefly.net and http.cdnlayer.com.
Format buttons in "quick reply" are no longer working - happened a while back when I had noscript turned on.
Anything to do with this upgrade Jeremy ???.

If I could get into the bugs page, I'd report it.

Please go to Forums Tab at the top of page and then to the Linux - Newbie Forum and at the top or bottom left of the threads is a button 'New Thread'. For a title you might enter 'Mouse will not double click.' Then enter your above post. This will give your post more exposure and more responders.

Syg00 Take a couple of deep breaths and I think your problems might be on your end. I am not having any problems since the links were repaired. It does seem like my wife nags more.

Blog Start Up

I was under the assumption that my initial start up post could be returned to for further posting and editing. How do I get back. If I cannot get back how do I delete so I can start over.

Is this the post you were looking for

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...t=texas.chef94

After posting a thread you can check the 'My LQ' at the top - right of page everytime you log on and it will list all the new posts to your thread. You can also use the 'Search' and enter your username or thread title and it will return your posts. You can go to 'My LQ' box at the right side of the page and there are links to your threads or posts also.

syg00,

We don't use cachefly anymore, so if your browser is waiting for that domain you may have some caching issues on your end. We monitor site speed very closely from 12 different locations globally and things look very good from all of them. Can you try clearing your browser cache, removing all LQ cookies and seeing if things improve? Any additional details from there would help. Is anyone else seeing this slowness?

No slowness here.
