Was it good with the update?
It was definitely better when the header moved up, but you still can’t see that many lines of text. It’s also hard to differentiate between posters. I think it used to post avatars next to names
In the chat box.

You know what would be cool if it existed? A button that just opens every thread with new messages in a new tab at once, like "Open all threads"

I don’t think that would even be possible to code as it would require browser integration as well.

Today tweets posted on the forum stopped displaying properly, but only on chrome. I troubleshooted the extensions and discovered that the DuckDuckGo extension was set to keep inline tweets from displaying. I don't know if that's a new DDG feature or what, and it probably has nothing to do with the new forum software, but I'm posting in case it is a new feature and others have the same issue.

Hey NYCFC_Dan NYCFC_Dan --

I'm on another unrelated forum that just switched to XenForo and the Admin is still figuring things out. You know how our forum shows the number of new posts in a red circle next to the New Posts link on desktop and next to a lightning icon on mobile? Is that a regular feature or add-on? I'd like to suggest it over there but I don't want to push the admin to buy extra features either. Thanks so much.

It’s an addon, the regular software is pretty bare bones. Much of what we take for granted here were addons.
