New forum software?

Post by ggold » Mon Jan 09, 2017 7:29 pm

Is this a new version, or new board software? In any case, I liked the old theme - can I get it now somehow?

Also, I can't find out how to tell if a forum has new posts at the index level. Help?

Thanks.

Was meant to make an announcement, but had to run out. It's a new version. For now you can't get the old theme.

Yeah, sorry about that. Didn't go as planned and the ed2k modifications backfired. I will try to get it back ASAP. For now you can copy and paste the links to your client, that should work without issues (while not being exactly convenient, again sorry)

Well, there's nothing really to show. You copy the links from here, then paste them into emule (right click where all your downloads are and paste)

P.S. I've put the profile bit on forum back to where it was, that hopefully didn't break something.

Just look at the forum icon and its color (currently red, for new/unread posts).

Or, look below the forum logo where there is a menu that says "Quick links".
Among other items, you can select "New posts", "Unread posts", etc.

hello, on the subject of copy / paste links there may be a setting in your emule client to watch clipboard for links, if there is then it will ask you if you want to "add the ed2k file links to download" when you highlight the link and right click it to copy it.

also great job on the site

Copy link for the file (hyperlink), then in emule client click "Tools".
Click "Paste eD2K Links" menu option and window will pop up for you to paste the file link you copied, then click the "Download" button on that window.

Edit:
Found another way to do it which is easier...mentioned by Che in an earlier post.
In emule client go to "Options" > "Files"
Under "Miscellaneous" tick the option "Watch clipboard for eD2K file links"
So now when you highlight the file link (hyperlink) and right click "copy", emule will ask if you want to download

With the old software, you saw the link with the extension, you clicked on it and Shareaza automatically opened and placed the link in the transfer page. Now, you get a strange long link which you have to copy, start Shareaza, click on Tools, click on Download File/Torrent, get a window, and then paste the link.

Is there a shorter way to download a file? Why was a 1-step procedure, used for many years, replaced by a 5-step procedure? I am sure there must have been a good reason for the upgrade but can you explain if there is an easier way to get files instead of going through all the steps I described above? Thanks

the shorter way is to get emule, and find the setting to watch the clipboard for links. it will come up auto just like before.
once you copy, it'll come up to add it to emule, click yes. :)

Is that a regression? Did they work in there before?

"Please, read what I write entirely. I mentioned more than one time that it's temp and I'll fix it asap"

Che, I am on ShareTheFiles almost every day and I absolutely never saw anything regarding upgrading the software or any of your msgs. No notification either. Where was what you wrote posted? Was there some notice sent out? I usually make it a point to read any correspondence but nothing was received and that is why I wrote the above.

".. and it should be back to how it was now. Let me know!"

It's back to normal. Thank you.

Good to see STF back, anxiety levels always rise when it's offline.

It also means i can change the red bulb back to a blue one in my flashing alert sign. ;)

a-z is running over from one to the next.
eg; i get movies, high definition, then the brackets (bd, and h, and then the next square, with the next text under the runover of the next squares text.
any one that doesn't have the room for the text, runs over into the next heading in other words.
whatever is next to high definition is unreadable after the h in hd. all the way across until "reality", at which pointt there is room again.
all through various parts of the a-z it jumbles up the wording from one to the next. too many letters imposed over one another.
i'm using chrome.
