As you notice, the forums look a bit different. We're in the process of a software upgrade which will make the site run more smoothly - as a result, the theme of the site will change slightly. Over the next couple days the site will look a bit different as we implement some changes, but should function as usual. Please report any issues you notice here. Note that small template changes will be re-implemented in the coming days.

I don't see the number that tells me how many new posts there are anymore. I kinda like it.
Noted, will implement that once all the other bigger tasks are done.

ElasticSearch has been setup, so the search engine should function a lot better. Please test it out and let me know your thoughts. If you can't find what you're looking for, please post further details about what you're searching for and what queries you tried. Thanks.

Tables seem to be disabled (e.g. in this post).

Is it an issue that banned people can't even log out now and I had to clear cookies

I've enabled tables, but the th1 and td1 tags have been removed. The tables need to be updated slightly. I don't recall what it looked like before, but the general format is:
Code:
[TABLE]
[TR][TD]
This is a left aligned cell
[/TD]
[TD]
This is a centre aligned cell
[/TD][/TR]
[TR][TD]
This is a right aligned cell
[/TD]
[TD]
Left aligned
[/TD][/TR]
[TR][TD]
Centre aligned
[/TD]
[TD]
Right aligned
[/TD][/TR][/TABLE]
Which outputs:

This is a left aligned cell

This is a centre aligned cell

This is a right aligned cell

Left aligned

Centre aligned

Right aligned

Can you please update the first post in that thread and let me know of any issues? I'll assist with it once I know what it supposed to look like. If it is too tedious to make these edits I'll see if I can implement a patch to solve these issues, but it is best to upgrade to the latest BBCode. You can also toggle on/off BBcode view view the toolbar in the editor:

Please let me know how this goes.

What is the issue exactly? What happens when the logout button is pressed?

Yikes, that'll take some work to fix. Gimme a bit.

E: Okay, updated the first two posts. Seems like a blanket replacement of td1 tags with td tags should work.

If it is too tedious, let me know so I can work on an alternative. I went to the 3rd post, did a 'replace all' td1 with td, and it formatted mostly okay, aside from the far right column. I can bulk replace all td1 on the forum once we confirm it will work okay.

Only the first post was tedious because I had to rearrange all the formatting. (Not sure why. Maybe it's because I first loaded it in the wysiwig editor then switched to BB code.) The second one was just search-and-replace.

The far right column is partially my fault lol. Nothing to worry about there. Three rows of the tables have four cells, and the forum sets each cell to 25% width. The fourth row has only three cells, so the forum sets each cell to 33% width. (CSS is so confusing; this is why I don't do web dev.)

When you're banned trying to do anything gives "oops you're banned" message, this now includes trying to log out

I don't mind the new update and I can get used to it, but I definitely prefer the old emoji's...

Hi,

Is there a way to "mute" some sections of the forum, so that new messages in those sections will not appear in the "New posts" list?
Sorry, if this is trivial.

Not on an individual level at the moment. Which forum were you referring to?

Hm, I also just noticed TeX equations no longer render (e.g. contents of the spoiler box in this post).

(I keep hitting edge cases with my posts lol.)

Glad you're reporting these, it helps a lot, I'll work on fixing them.

You can now find a fx icon in the toolbar for TeX:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/xpgb8ekdc6i81a2/Screenshot 2018-08-28 10.17.39.png?dl=0

Code:
$\lim_{x \to \infty} \exp(-x) = 0$
Outputs:
$\lim_{x \to \infty} \exp(-x) = 0$

Looking at the post you referenced, it hasn't yet solved the problem. Latex isn't rendered inside of a quote or spoiler tag. If you remove the spoiler tag, it renders fine now. I'll look into solving this.

Will get back with you. Let me know of any other issues you notice, thanks!

The new forum software added some frustrating hotkeys. Pressing the "1" key redirects me to the home page, "3" redirects me to the wiki, etc. These frequently trigger when I use Alt-# to switch between tabs in my browser; for example, when I use Alt-1 to switch back to my forum tab, the "1" hotkey gets triggered, and I get sent to the home page. I find myself continually hitting the back button to get back to where I was.

These hotkeys don't seem all that useful to begin with. Could they be disabled?

The old system had clicking on the thread title to take you to unread posts, or the first page sometimes (seems to be when something changes on the forum for the first time clicking into a thread, or a little black circle to jump to the unread posts. Seemed like a weird setup, but I knew how to work it.

Now, the thread title has the same problem and the circle seems to be gone with no replacement, so for the next short while the first time I click into a thread I've already seen most of I seem to be forced to detour though the first page.
