  • Crusader Kings III Available Now!

    The realm rejoices as Paradox Interactive announces the launch of Crusader Kings III, the latest entry in the publisher’s grand strategy role-playing game franchise. Advisors may now jockey for positions of influence and adversaries should save their schemes for another day, because on this day Crusader Kings III can be purchased on Steam, the Paradox Store, and other major online retailers.


    Real Strategy Requires Cunning

Thank you, I had missed out on the "div" part.

For anyone else that would have been confused, this means you can write this:
CSS:
div[data-widget-definition="xfes_similar_threads"] {
    display: none !important;
}

So a while back, I reported the following issue with collapsible signatures:

While we're at it: The link highlighted in the screenshot below is impossible to click, because whenever you try to click it, it instead collapses the signature because the "hitbox" to do that overlaps the link:

I've included a link to the post in question, for anyone else who wants to verify this. This isn't the first one, either -- it seems that it affects any link that's on the bottom line of a signature whenever it's long enough that the forum has to truncate it.

I can confirm that this issue has not been fixed with the new update. That particular user's signature is now fine (since they manually "fixed" it themselves), but the overarching issue -- that the "hitbox" to collapse a signature overlaps the last one or two lines of text in said signature, making it impossible to click on any links in those lines -- still remains.

Regarding similar threads, by all means you're welcome to hide it via a browser extension. Or, we can wait for the search index to be rebuilt, see if it offers relevant results at least some of the time, or we can make a user setting to hide it. Thanks for the wonderful feedback.

I reported the issue, it might not have been seen (apologies). Will see if we can hot patch it soon.

Yo, the voting is awesome.
Is it intentional that we can only vote by opening the thread? it would be much more convenient to do from the list.

You know, it might be a good idea to add subcategories to Popular: most popular this week, this month, this year. Like Reddit does. Otherwise, the top list will mostly stay the same.

Three separate dropdown menus for 'more options'? Seriously?

I'd definitely keep the smilies button on top, and personally, I use the 'remove formatting' button quite a lot.

see if it offers relevant results at least some of the time
the similarly named threads feature when starting a new thread almost never was useful in my experience, so I doubt this will be either. Though perhaps I'm just weird.
But personally I much rather prefer searching when needing stuff. And I've never really used those other people also.like features on other sites and this feel similar.

we can make a user setting to hide it.
Thats what ud prefer.

Seems like it's gone now, though. I can't see it atm at least, though might alsonjust be that it doesn't show on mobile.

Bloody soambots.
I don't have time to look as I'm on my way to bed, but somebody, e.g. a mod seeing my reporting of the above spambot, should look through general forum and forum help to see if there's more. They usually come in droves. Whenever I report them I often often up reporting a lot.

I agree, this level of button hiding is excessive. The smilies being relegated to a dropdown is also puzzling to me. At least the other hidden buttons are for formatting stuff, bullet lists and code blocks and whatnot, that are a feature of more lengthy, well-considered posts. But smilies are used all the time, arguably even more so in casual posts, so hiding that button in an "advanced" menu doesn't seem logical to me.

Search and "Similar threads" are not returning newer content. This will resolve itself over the next few hours and is just due to changes in the new update that requires the search index to be rebuilt
Will this also fix the longstanding issue of missing reactions for some periods? I'm still missing reactions between roughly February 2017 and April 2020. Only posts between 2015, when the reactions were introduced in the first place and February 2017, and then between April 2020 and today, have the reactions they should have.

I have the same issue. I have to double tap every time I load a new page to fit the header to screen.

I haven't tried out actually using the forum yet but, despite preferring larger text due to poor eyesight, your new sizing has gone totally over the top . . quite how users that access via smart-phones even see anything . . well, my monitor is a 32" and I wish I could reduce the size of your display yet, even if I use the browser controls to try to do so, it doesn't effect how you are "broadcasting" the page. So the "fault" is at your end alone.

. . . and as for how this increased sizing makes the pages so long . . . you risk users giving up due to RSI injury caused by permanent use of the scroll wheel!
