@Big Mike

Seems there is an issue with creating a post title. Thrice now I attempted to have a title for a post and it's replaced by the threads title... here are the examples
...

Ron


Test of title.

Bob.

Edit: Title creation worked OK here. Issue must be something else.

Thank you Bob...

Chrome? But that doesn't explain the iPhone app.....huh

Great a puzzle....lol.... I can't help myself now. Maybe I can use this as a chance to exercise an ounce of discipline....lol... and resist.

@bobwest

I just tested it myself too, in my old journal, and it worked fine. Chalking it up to user error three times in a row, I guess....lol

I incorrectly assumed it was a problem with the FIO tapatalk app at first because I wrote the first of these three with it in web view so I could use a title.

Ron

I do have to say this though, this thought occurred to me... There must be some kind of intermittent issue because one thing I know for sure with the above three posts ...I did not type the long winded paradox this and quarantine that ...lol... name of my thread three times in the title field but that is how the posts ended up. I did actually have a different title in there but somehow it got replaced with my threads title......Cosmic rays...........lol.....??????????????

The title field has been fine after this.....

I'm not sure what you are saying. Try screenshots.

But my guess is, it relates to the first post on each page replacing the user defined title of the post with the thread title.

99% of posts have no title, so I never paid it much notice honestly.

At the bottom of the Settings Page, there as a Privacy Settings Subsection, which in turn has 3 subsections, Mention, Quotes & Tags. All three have the identical wording which seem unrelated to the intended use.
This setting controls who can see your profile tab.
Setting this to "Nobody" means nobody can see your profile tab except yourself.

The notifications are hard to tell. They don't stand out when I logon. I have missed many until I randomly decide to look there.


bobwest View Post
Agree on that. I hadn't realized it, but after I read this post, I went looking for my notifications (had to locate them) and found I had 6 that I had not seen.

Maybe it's just where they are, and perhaps it's just that I am still looking at the old place, not the new location. Used to be upper left, now top right. If that's it, I'll probably get used to it in time. But they also definitely don't stand out.

But I think the upper left is still a better location. There are other things there that I would naturally look at, and it makes sense to have everything together.

Bob.


Big Mike View Post
Yup. This is something I'm investigating improving now as well.

Sent using the futures.io mobile app

Definitely an issue. I almost never look to the top right, and just by accident as I was doing a search just now, I noticed I had 16 notifications, which, it turned out, went back to Jan 11 -- so I had missed seeing the link for that long.

I think putting the "Your Notifications" up in the right corner is just putting them where they're not going to be noticed. The old location, top left, is someplace I look at all the time, because of all the other stuff there.

Bob.

I have over 300 notifications, mostly for new posts in threads that I subscribe to, 99% of which I have actually read.

Which brings up another question about the "Notifications" at all: if they've been read, should the number in the tally automatically be reduced? I realize this is a "new version" question, and not something to be implemented in this version.

I had read all the "new" notifications as well (since I have email notification turned on), but I usually like to just clear out the Notifications list when I see a number there. I guess there's also a chance of an email problem occasionally , so I may not get all of them. That makes this list a check.

In practice, I'm missing the check now because I never notice it.

Not a big deal, obviously....

Bob.

Personally I would like to get email notifications of new posts, but not notifications on the website, but I suppose there are others who would prefer the reverse
