New LQ Features


I had planned on releasing a list of new features available here, but I've decided against it. Why? I think I'd be more fun for members to go around and find them. If you find a new or improved feature, please post it in this thread and share it with your fellow LQ members. Thanks.

I'll start you off with a few:

- The quick reply box now uses AJAX, so replying doesn't even require a page reload
- There is now an integrated bug tracker (please use it)
- Each and every LQ member now has their very own Blog

1. the fonts are different.
2. different icon set.
3. new look.
4. new top picture of questioning penguins.
5. drop-down menu for quick searching.
6. on the wuick reply box there is a icon to go to the advanced post options.
7. list of users viewing the current thread.

there are more but i will let other people find them.

P.S. jeremy, it would be cool if there was a gentoo subforum of distros.

I hadn't gone around completely but I found something:
- The forum load a little bit faster.
- Very nice new skin.
- The icon is great, large and beautyful
- There is also fast review in distro review page.
- The page title is cut off so that I can quickly find out the thread title.
- The view profile page is better organized

I think these thing is a bug.
1) I have to erase all old cookies to make the forum remember me.
2) My country name is not in English but it is displayed correctly before.
After upgrade, it display wrongly, but when I erase and enter it again, it display correctly.
3) The idea of fast reply without page reloading is good.
But because the page is not reload, I cann't realize that there is also new post from other user. I think the page should show these post as well.

here's another one:
the little mail icon of each thread at the left side, hints with mouse hover how many posts you have done in that thread, it nice

Editing is very improved, I liked it.
