OK the fly and fish are back but I may have screwed them up...

Now which one was for new posts?

Now I have it so the fish signifies new posts in a thread but maybe it was the other way around...

You got it right! THanks Sean.

BTW - It would be great to be able to click on the fish to get to the last unread post as opposed to that little tiny blue down arrow thing.

I suppose the fly would go to the thread since there is no unread thread, or it could link to most recent.

Thumbs up Hey Sean...

I really appreciate all the work you put in on this changeover. At 3:30 AM my first impression of the new format was "what the hell is this guy thinking" but now I'm really liking it. I still don't see any fish and fly, only the little bulletin board logo. Everything seems to be working quite well, so I'm saying Thank You for a job well done.
Take care, MJC

Sean, great job.

The new format is an improvement, many thanks. One thing I immediately liked was the "no new post" single note on board and "new post" being two notes on board. I never did, and do not now, understand the fly and fish thing. Please educate me.

A favorite feature of the old format was the "new posts since last visit" item located at the top right of the Fly Fishing Forum page. Where is it in the new format?

Bob

Glad you guys are liking the changes. I like them and there is still a ton of functionality we have yet to leverage with the new software.

As far as the fish and fly.

The fly means no new posts in that thread since your last vist.

The fish means there have been new posts since your last visit in that thread.

As far as getting new posts since you last visit. On the top nav nar you will see a bunch of options like:

User CP FAQ Members List Calendar New Posts Search Quick Links Log Out

Click on New Posts and that should get you what you are looking for.

Let me know if that helps,

-sean

I have found a couple of instances where there was no e-mail notification to threads that I had subscribed to, even after there had been a couple of responses.

It will take us all some time to get used to the new format, but overall it looks much more streamlined and I'm sure it will be very useful.

Sean-
Everything looks pretty darn cool. However, could you adjust the so that my scroll horizontal scroll bar doesnt pop up....or maybe I just need to adjust my resolution??
\
btw-When you going to stop by and pick up that Carron that Andre dropped off...I keep eyeing it? I am very tempted to run out to the parking lot and give it a whirl!!

Hey Ryan what is your resolution at?

Oh my Carron...I almost forgot. I cannot get over until next Friday and you are more than welcome to cast it and even take it fishing if you get out before then.

Hey Sean,
Super format. Took me a little time to figure things out, but I like it.
Great to see you at the Springclave.
Late May and early June were awesome.
Now back in Sacto.
Cheers,
DK

That is a 10/11 right?? Given what I've regarding the Carron and the characteristics of the DBF...I'm sure that 10/11 Carron would be a great match on that rod! And thanks for the offer!!...I'll do a favor for 'ya and only cast it on water...not on the parking lot!

btw-I am running 800x600? What are most websites designed around nowadays?
