Forum Updates 11/24/2021


You probably noticed, but we’ve added some new functionality to the Forums to enrich your experience. Nothing like adding new stuff right before a long holiday weekend. 🙂

 

Mentions Improvements

First and foremost... we’ve improved the @Mentions function. We’ve fixed an inconsistent tagging bug and updated the logic. Now when you type "@" the suggestions will weight recent commenters first. Then as you type it will live-filter to match (all! not some!) users (like it should!)

Avatars are also included for easier identification.

 

Blockquote Formatting

You probably noticed, but we’ve added some new functionality to the Forums to enrich your experience.

We’ve changed the styling of blockquotes to make them stand out more. They would get lost on the darker odd-numbered messages. The next iteration is to support highlighting text and "Reply" to it in your message, and have it link to the original message. Baby steps.

 

Forum Text Editor

The former editor was not What You See Is What You Get. So your post would look different between compose, preview, and live. No longer is that the case.

The new editor is WYSIWYG, and addresses the most common complaint we hear—the erratic line break behavior.

Well, all that’s gone now. Pressing ENTER...

will create a new paragraph.


And pressing SHIFT+ENTER...
will create a single line break.

We now strip pasted content of hidden formatting that we don’t support. We did not do this previously and it caused a lot of discrepancies, which was not obvious unless you viewed the HTML. Goodbye hidden <span> tags!

We’ve also added additional formatting options: Underline, Strikethrough and Remove Formatting. The editor also shows you in the bottom left what type of formatting/container you are in.

 

New Forum Features

• Insert Externally Hosted Image: As you can see, images can now be added directly into your post by clicking the Image icon and providing the image URL.

Emoji Menu/Support: 🙌 Rejoice! Use modern hieroglyphics to speak for you. 🙌

• Media Embedding: Pasting a URL from whitelisted media publishers like YouTube, Tidal, Bandcamp, Spotify, Giphy, Flickr, Twitter, and more will automatically embed the content dynamically. Share your Figma wireframes to your heart’s content. Check it out:

 

We appreciate you using this platform, and we know these improvements are long overdue, but we are committed to continuously improving each area of the site.

Not sure if anyone here is opinionated... but for the one or two of you may be, we would like to hear your feedback about what steps we can take for the future of the forum: Audiogon Forum User Survey

Feel free to test out the new functionality in this discussion. We're aware of a few mobile behavior discrepancies across different browsers and OSes. But if, and when, you encounter any bugs, you can post it in here but it would be better to let us know via a Support Ticket so we can compile everything for the developers to work through.

Thank you.

- Tammy

Good start ! Thanks for all your work Tammy ! Happy Holiday to you and yours

  1. @tammyholt , oooh, look at me trying it out! 😃. COOL  I dont know how to work some of these.  but I'm working on it. Like this one... Keep up the good work! I'm sure you will find a couple of opinionated people... 😉🙊

All good. Mostly. On mobile, the editor doesn’t wrap text—meaning you have to scroll right in the editor window. (Chrome, Edge, Samsung browsers)

Let's see now, 
the single line breaks works as advertised!

Thanks a bunch for that one Tammy!

All the best,
Nonoise

 

noise, we can all now appreciate your demonic gifs! 🙄

Thanks for the improvements Tammy.

A lot of nice features. Reminds me of the song "You know it don’t come easy" Johnny Ringo oh oh wrong Ringo! :-) I’ll be your huckleberry.

"Hell Doc I got a lot of friends.. I don’t"

Best supporting actor in a role I’ve ever seen. Val Kilmer as Doc Holiday

Thanks Mrs. Tammy/Team (best Admin around)

Regards

Appreciated. Happy turkey day Tammy

noromance has got it right. On Android at least the comments run off the page. This actually makes it harder to write than it used to be. Definitely NOT WYSIWYG

What you see is not what you gave us.

I will say that Tammy is alway's very conscientious!! Happy Thanksgiving to all.

Thanks, thanks, thanks!

Thank you Tammy and Audiogon - Happy Thanksgiving!

@tammyholt ,

Thanks for the update, and getting the single line break to work.
Will the SHIFT+ENTER combination be mentioned to those creating a listing?
This was a major inconvenience, so glad to see it resolved, but not sure how this will be communicated to users.

Are there plans to address the text or graphical wrap issue that occurs in many forum threads, when viewing with a smartphone? Mobile formatting issue?

Thanks for your help,
Gary

Nice. Thanks

Happy Thanksgiving

 Thanks much! Have a Happy Thanksgiving! 😘😍  😅🤩

Thanks for the hard work.

Time to celebrate!

 

I would hope geek members would go through briefly each block and let us low tech guys know what each block means/applications

Thanks Tammy for all your good work and happy happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.

Can't seem to get a bigger screen. 
Gonna have to work on that.

Thank you very much @tammyholt and have a very happy Thanksgiving!

Thanks Tammy for the Great Leap Forward!
Now my nominal nattering can...well, still be ignored but can at least look gooder...;)

Happy Thanksgiving and enjoy the leftovers...turkey this, turkey that, turkey salad with turkey bone pate' and (of course) the unforgiveable turkey gravy iced crema'  dessert. *shudder* ;)

@nonoise...Aren't black cats great? *S*
Our Mr. Zed likes to 'fetch'....working on getting the 'drop into the hand' returns, 1 out of 3 at present....;))

@asvjerry ...yes they most certainly are. 
I'm having a Dickens of a time trying to get a larger YouTube video to take hold.
When I change the values in the embed and transfer here, the preview shows the perfect result, but when I hit "post response", there's a long delay and I have to refresh the screen and it's back to the smallest version. It could be I'm not waiting long enough for it to take.

All the best,
Nonoise

Just one more thing to be thankful for today!

*g*  Well...in posting, as in audio...

Sometimes less is more.

(That doesn't excuse all that stuff I mess about with, but I enjoyed your vid...*S* )

Spouse told me about the billboard she saw today in Greenville, SC.....

From your North Pole to your South hole....

                Whisper Bidets

"Daddy, what does that mean?"

"Ask your mother..."

*LOL*

Tammy, THANKS! Everyone like fun new toys!

All wonderful. Well done.

Need spellchecker and grammar checking 

and that will make 50% legible along with the other 50%.

shame we couldn’t have a rudeness checker too.

AG 🇦🇺

Rudeness checker requires a membership and then AG will send out a probe, please don't play with the probe, and insert the probe in the correct orifice. 

Thank you.

PS from time to time we do routine voltage checks on the probe.. 1-50,000 volts.

Pretty effective on hemorrhoids too.

This is a test "Naked". 

I want to see if I get disappeared.

It use to be when you said you were naked in the back yard watering the plants.

Just wearing a hat you could, NO you WOULD get disappeared.. :-)

We'll see? LOL

I like driven the tractor naked too.

Nothing like November air in the Netherlands and a good Hat. :-)

All kidding aside. I like it. I might even learn how to use it. MY spell checker is working better.

NO idea why other that it's interactive and "LEARNING" it will become "Self Aware", by May 12, 2022. Operation Reboot will be active at 0001 hours star date 13052022.0001

Everyone's car will start and then shut off by 13052022.0002

Report all cars without drivers reporting to designated departure areas.

:-)

This is a mozartfan check. 3-4 in a row.. I call it the machinegun poster. Jimi Hendrix would be proud..

Just Beta testing Tammy.. Be of good cheer.. :-)

Tammy please oh please, please, Please! add a "Tourette's Button"

That's my favorite button other than the "Shock the other guy Button" I love that one when the camera is on.. See the person run off and have to change their dipper. Better than eatin' bugs..

Regards

New toys! Kids love new toys!!

Testing WYSIWYG from iOS.

New line on pressing return?

👍

Thanx!

 

I recently noticed I can respond and communicate with the individual who posted a comment.  This allowed me to get to know people on a different level and tap their knowledge.  These changes are difficult to understand using the limitations of my iPhone’s small screen.  I will use my computer when I get home.

@oldhvymec ...Ah, ultimately what you desire in the end is a 'cheeky checker', a product of Roto-Rooters' Dark Ops subsidiary....the last word was caught by the Spell Checker, of which I'm not under.
...and would you like the Tourettes' button to delete or occur that?

I'll prefer the Random option, myself....much more real. ;)

Enhanced AI-'Woke' vehicles are under Beta prior to noted Star Date times, so certain 'Shock: All local/Autolock all current/Run all" is still being studied for 'Priority Only' response rates....that ought to cover your last request. *s*

My fav to date is the Heat Seek Option/Tailgater Termination System....the 100 meter radius Cell Blocker is just fun to run...

Hope your Holiday Feast was festive...cheers, J

My proximity alert sensors are set for 1500 meters and inbound speed and locations are prioritized. Slide rule and an abacus for calculations and geese for bio proximity sensors. No high tech here. Trebuchet and 55 gallon drums of gasoline.

I'm low tech and really really analog, BUT effective.

BTW Spend every cartridge twice if you can't reload them. :-)

"...took my clue from Bobs' Subterranean Homesick Blues' and went underground in a literal way, the 'house' is MCM Bunkerstyle. Dawg loads the Treb, and answers "Sir, Yesser, Sir!" with a bark accent.  Crossbred the chickens with velociraptors, and had the piranhas' in the moat drill them with titanium broadhead beaks and curare' dipped claws....

Gotta feed 'em Regular, as y'all know....don't want them getting testy.... or too hungry.....;)

'Call 1st or else.'  Gotcha. 😏👍👌🙌

...what one has to do to wrangle an invite for ham, beans, and cornbread these days, when one offers to BYOBx2 as a 'gift to the host'.....*sheesh*
