Forum Improvements?

edited May 2013 in EggHead Forum

Very little interaction with the webmaster here. I would like to start a thread that they may see to suggest some modifications/improvements but it can't get silly.

Here are a couple to start it:

Have the Latest Posts at the end of a thread along with the page numbers

Improvement of the photo posting to allow one full size pic that shows up quickly. Some take forever to load and when you have the thumbnails showing and click on them it takes you to the vanilla site and you have to close that out and return to the forum

  • proper ipad formatting please. You cannot have paragraphs using an ipad. they all smash together in one run on sentence.

    Also, better photo formatting. If I post something from my iphone or ipad, it can look fine on those devices but randomly be sideways if I look on my PC.

    I would like to have a feature that works like a "fax machine" by where we could actually taste the pictured food... :D

    I knew you would be the first one Charlie. How about a poll option?

    Ditch Vanilla and use modern forum software such as Discourse.

    Better searching (why not use Google's search tool?); auto photo resizing; formatting to work on mobile devices (iPad/iPhone/etc); when quoting, don't include all of the photos from the original post;

    Or at least a subforum/topic set where these get stored with approval.  Could even call it Egg Carton of Fame or something.

    The "advanced search" feature on the other forum is helpful at times.

     

    PS: Have NASA send me some of HAP's pulled beef, don't forget the horseradish sauce!

    Perhaps a "most often viewed" set of links with the ability of the author to re-name the post for easy reference.  i.e. "the way i do it" could become "the Travis Method" since that's how it's most commonly referred to.  Since some posts are referred to often (and likely viewed often), it would be a starting point for those exploring.

    I get a normal view on my iPad but I do get the sideways pics once in a while...

    X 2 on explore options rather than Vanilla...doesn't seem quite up to handling the traffic lately.

    Some good stuff. Anyone know how we would get this to the webmaster? As I've always said, I'm kind of an idea guy

    Posting photos has always been frustrating to me on this site (and if we get Stickies, that should be the very first one!).
    Smell-o-Net would be cool, too....

    Maybe thread categories...

    Egg tables
    Egging equipment
    Cooking utensils
    Recipes
    For sale items
    Playboy bunnies

    You get my drift. I like seeing all the post but wonder if they could be "filed" after a length of time?

    Playboy bunnies?  You think this site crashes now?  Playboy bunnies will produce more crashes than an ice storm in Georgia.
