    So every post that had the old formatting is now broken? I really hope this is fixed.

    Just enabled this option:

    Code:
    Create Pages for Categories
    
    When enabled, clicking on a link to a category will take you to a dedicated page that only shows the children of that category. When disabled, users will be redirected to the full forum list and scrolled to the correct category.
    This is similar to clicking a forum category in the past, showing the list of forums for that category only.

    And also enabled multi-quote.

    Code:
    Enable Multi-Quote
    
    Enabling this system allows multiple messages across multiple pages to be selected and quoted in a single reply.

    TIP: When positng link to YouTube video, you don't need to use the media tag. Just copy and paste the link and it should auto-embed media links:

    Example: I just copy and paste this URL:

    I have a number of threads to which I had "subscribed" which were organised into folders e.g. SGOTM, Reference etc. Apparently "subscribing" is now known as "watched" but the trouble is that all such threads are shown as one big jumble rather than split into folders. The original folder names are shown alongside the watched thread name. Is it possible for these threads to be organised as previously?

    EDIT: See attached example of what I mean.

    Ah, misread, sorry.
    Doesn't seem to be the case, at least I cannot easily find it.

    Doesn't work across multiple pages, but maybe I'm missing something.


    EDIT: The [THREAD=] tag is broken, see e.g. here http://forums.civfanatics.com/threads/random-raves-39-life-is-good.570264/ in the spoiler

    Every "reply" that you click on adds the text of that thread to the reply box at the end of the page. If you move to another page and hit "reply", it takes the reply box from the previous page (and any previous quoted text) and adds the next one, too.

    I'm of the same mind here. Is there a way to enable different looks for end users? Switching to a dark theme or something would do wonders for my eyes.

    Great. Can this also be done for [ post= ] tags? Also, sorry if I've missed this, but how can I edit my signature?

    Hover over your name near the top right of the page, signature is the second option in the left column. Might be different for moderators though.

    Sorry if it was asked already, but I cannot find out how to set forums to always display newest replies on top and not the first one - as it was possibly with the old forum. Is there a way? I find very uncomfortable the "Go to First Unread" button.
    Thank you!

    We're having some issues accessing the bit to edit our signatures at the moment @AlanH, you're not alone. Seems to be a moderator-wide thing

    I've only read about 5 pages but how the hell do i change the colours/theme? Whoever picked this one obviously is new to the internet.

    You can't just yet, new themes and colour updates will come once the other functionality is back online

    Hi. I've noticed that the character limits have been upped (something I'm very grateful for!). However, it's unclear by just how much it is increased. Can someone clear that up for me?
