    Ahh I see Aurich explained it much better then I did in post #54

    #102 72 days ago

    Guys, if you are tired of seeing the dark mode banner on every page, it seems to go away once you pick a default dark mode setting on the settings page. Pardon me if this was already mentioned.

    #103 72 days ago

    I am STILL having problems when returning to a page after reading a post. It's all over the place. Usually way below the thread I had just visited. This has been happening off and on for a at least a year now. Not the end of the world but very annoying.
    Anyone else still having this problem?

    #104 72 days ago

    It looks like I can post pics now but not GIFs. Anybody else having that issue?

    #105 72 days ago

    Thanks for doing this! I love that you can set it to automagically follow the OS setting.

    I'd like to place another vote for better contrast, though. I played around with it in Chrome and I think swapping the color you've used for the page background into the post div makes it much easier on the eyes.

    #106 72 days ago

    Appreciate the feedback, I will investigate improving the contrast and work on the other reported issues.

    Meanwhile, happy to report that the uploading error ("could not get upload id") has been fixed!

    #107 72 days ago

    Can you also add come shading/lines to the light interface when viewing forum topics? I thought it was before, but with all the white it's hard to tell which line goes which which numbers. See attached.

    That's great! Just curious, what was the issue?

    #109 72 days ago
    Quoted from Crash:

    A missing zero in my maximum upload filesize setting. So the actual max upload size was 1MB.

    #110 72 days ago

    Interesting. I tried it again and all images are working now. That you for the quick fix!

    #111 72 days ago

    I still can't seem to upload photos for my pending classified despite refreshing and trying again. "Did not get an upload ID: Unknown error."

    edit: I got around it by uploading everything even with errors, then refreshing, and there will be multiple uploads for each image, so I had to delete the extras.

    #112 72 days ago

    San Serif Font updated on mobile for me. Thanks! Looks much better!

    #113 72 days ago

    Haven't tried dark mode too much yet, but definitely like the option for when it's late night etc.

    Honestly, not a fan of the new bubbly PM layout. Personally, I like my emails, texts, PMs, etc. To be simple and straight forward (like it was). I have to scroll up and down hunting WAY too long on my android for PMs like this.

    I'm hoping there will be an option to revert back to being similar to older style for this part.

    #114 72 days ago

    Looks great, keep up the good job. Thank you

    #115 71 days ago

    We need a third choice for the thumbs up and thumbs down.

    1. downvote (I will never downvote)
    2. up vote
    3. ? (a 3rd option for when I do not get it). The ? would be like a neutral I guess?

    It would look like: (down arrow) 0 ^1 ?1

    I think the ? option would work really well and help members to not get as many downvotes.

    Just my 2 cents tonight.

    THANK YOU ROBIN AND ALL THE MODS FOR KEEPING THIS SITE AWESOME!

    (can we let O-din back on now? Just asking for a friend).

    #116 71 days ago

    I've always used PaleMoon browser on Windows here and now when replying to posts I suddenly cannot rotate or delete attached images when I hover over them.

    Love dark mode (thank you!). Hopefully I didn’t miss a previous post about this, but is there a way to get rid of the flashing to original bright/white mode before it goes to dark mode on a page refresh?

    #119 71 days ago

    Great work as always Robin. Thank you.

    Guys, if you are tired of seeing the dark mode banner on every page, it seems to go away once you pick a default dark mode setting on the settings page. Pardon me if this was already mentioned.

    Yeap. So I picked "disabled, always light" saved settings.
    Hit the back arrow and this page loaded....... in dark mode.
    went back to settings, follow system settings was checked.
    changed it to "disabled , always light" saved settings.
    Hit the back arrow, this page loaded in dark mode.
    *sigh*

    EDIT: so apparently despite it changing on the settings page, it wasn't saving because I had auto collapse promotion box selected and I have a regular heart.
    I dont ever recall changing that, but in case anyone else has the same issue as me they'll know how to fix it.

    #121 71 days ago

    More stuff today done!

    - Lotsa little bugfixes!
    - Dark mode has gotten a little bit darker today.
    - PM screen bubbles now use more real estate to help avoid scrolling. Avatars go smaller on mobile.
    - Did a bunch of mobile optimisations.

    This was a problem with the initial release but should not be a problem anymore. What browser are you experiencing this on and would it at all be possible to make a screen recording of this happening?

    Hmm, I seem unable to replicate this bug. what browser is this happening on?

    I tried to ninja edit but you got me! :p

    I had a heart+ option not set to default (that was already changed on my settings screen) I guess preventing it from keeping the change even though the setting page turned white. Maybe completely hide that option if you dont have a heart+ ?

    Im using chrome , not that I think it matters.

    #123 71 days ago

    Yay for Darker Mode!

    I'm still getting the white flash when pages first load. Using the latest version of Google Chrome on Windows 10.

    Edit: I captured a video if it helps, but not sure how to get it to you...

    Quoted from TheHueManatee:

    Just noticed on android that the tabs in the menu move around when you click on them. It's a little odd and distracting. Fyi[quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]

    Issue now seems to be fixed. Thanks robin

    #125 71 days ago

    Every morning I get on, it gets better and better!

    One more thing. It seems the titles for the games for rating comments are super bright during dark mode on mobile.

    macOS Safari issue, does not do this on iOS Safari nor Chrome on a Mac. Confirmed on 2 different Macs: When you scroll down on a page the blue directory bar disappears. When you then scroll back up the blue directory bar reappears, however it only comes out 2/3rd of the way

    I noticed the lines are back on the light side, thanks!

    #138 71 days ago

    FYI, I also noticed when I selected print mode it gives an error now. This is on a PC with Chrome. It appears to be doing it in light mode as well.

    Great work as always Robin.
    I am always on my LG Android when I Pinside (yes it's a verb now) annnnd, I guess I'll get used to it, but us there any way to move the FORUM button up top back to the left corner? Nitpicking I know. Old habits die hard and now I'm always hitting the MARKET button lol.
    No big deal, just thought I'd ask.
    Thanks for all your hard work bud!

    Just to make sure I understand your issue: you are on the front-page. Scroll down to, say, page 3. Click a topic. Then click back. You are not returned to that same scroll position you were at when you clicked the topic?

    This is part of some tricky code, due to the way extra pages of topics are loaded on mPinside (dynamically added to the page while you scroll). While most browsers, when you hit 'back', will return to the previous page the way it was before any dynamic stuff happened. So I remember building a mechanism with a #hash in the url which then helps figure ouot what page you were on and at what scroll position and it then re-triggers this loading.

    However, I think recently many modern browsers are starting to remember the 'state' of the page and will now return to the page as it was right before navigating. I'm pretty sure Safari does this.

    I will need to investigate across different browsers

    What browser/os/version are you on?

    There were some typography changes/tweaks, I'm assuming that's causing 'market' to not fit on the top row anymore. It really depends on your phone type and resolution though. I'll take a look at it.

    #144 70 days ago

    I'm also loving the Dark mode! Keep up the great work

    Thanks Robin. I am using Chrome Version 85.0.4183.102 (Official Build) (64-bit).

    As an example, say I am on page 1 and I scroll down to a particular topic. I click on that topic and read a few new posts. Then when I return to page 1 I am not directed to the topic I had just clicked on. I might be 20 posts down from where I started or 20 posts up from where I started. It's all over the place. Like I said, it's not a serious issue. Just annoying in that I have to hunt around to find where I originally was on that page.

    I hope this explains things better. Thanks.

    Still getting the forum menu dropping over 2 lines as below, but realized now that it’s because of the Bold typeface on the active menu item.....doesn’t happen when you’re in the actual thread because no menu items are bold.....

    This is without any bold....08B84340-CEED-4635-8BE2-0674D8DD2464 (resized).jpeg

    #150 70 days ago

    FYI I’ve noticed an issue where I select a thread I’ve read before to catch up on (say it has 30 new posts), but when I click on the number to open the thread it takes me to the most recent post rather than the last one I’ve seen. I then have to scroll up until I find the last one I’d read. Sounds similar to the post before about losing places.
