    When I look at "New Posts", I can never get to anything but the first page of results. Pressing the button to move to other pages do nothing.

    Animated avatars with file sizes up to at least the former 90-plus kb limit (if not more) will work in our profiles, but not out here in the forums. Dimensions don't seem to matter; I've had 100x100 pixel gifs move through their frames there just as much as 60x60 and 80x80 gifs. But out here in the topics themselves the same animated avatars are as dead as Guy Fawkes.

    The alerts actually still work, you'll get an error message but the menu will still come up (at least it does for me) then if you click on all alerts it should take you to the alerts page.

    conversations should be changed to private messages.

    it also seems that a lot of functions are "right click, new tab" oriented.
    that is too confusing.

    and where the hell is my edit button???

    what is going to happen with the post count?
    return it to the posts?

    will ignored posters screw up in thread references?
    what about mod or user deleted posts?

    The "trophy" system is certainly novel: "Can't Stop!" "Keeps Coming Back!" "Addicted!" and of course the lesser-regarded "First Post About Something Or Other". What a shame no "Bestest Member" was instituted. Whom shall I thank?

    Greetings GeoffP. If you are who I think you are - e.g. having patented laminar sheeting process for metals - then you may readily guess who I am since we met for dinner at D~g back in April last year.

    Yours faithfully
    FOLZONI

    Sorry if this has been reported already. The paging buttons do not work.

    I see 10 pages of new posts, but if I click on page 2, I remain on page 1.

    Conversations you start to my knowledge are between the people involved in that conversation, it's separate from messaging on a members profile which incidentally is public.

    As for "Clicks not functioning correctly" that's all down to the code not functioning correctly yet. Once that problem has been fixed then all those functions should work correctly.

    Testing out:
    Superscripts: "sup": x[sup]sup[/sup]
    Subscripts: "sub": x[sub]sub[/sub]
    TeX: \(3^2 + 4^2 = 5^2\)

    Superscripts and subscripts can be added as custom BBCodes. I had done that myself on a board that I co-admin. I'd used HTML "sup" and "sub" tags for it. TeX will be more difficult, I concede.

    Good God, man! Has it really been so long?

    That was an excellent dinner, although I'll never know how you got the police to drop those indecency charges, and I've no idea whether the restaurant's owner really is a 'supercilious tart'.

    Sub and sup are the codes the old software used so using anything else is going to break a whole lot of posts.

    for Superscript and Subscript there use to be various HTML elements that are now depreciated, this means the effects have to be created using CSS markup.
    This can either mean adding Classes to the global CSS file or entering them in the individual elements through STYLE (Which can be handy if editing just the BBcode without wanting to disturb global CSS themes)

    HTML:
    <font style="font-size:xx-small; vertical-align:top;">Superscript</font> // will make a tiny superscript compared to below example
    <font style="vertical-align:super;">Superscript</font >
    
    <font style="font-size:xx-small; vertical-align:bottom;">Subscript</font>  // will make a tiny subscript compared to below example
    <font style="vertical-align:sub;">Subscript</font>

    I can't click on anything without getting error messages. The only way I can get some links to work is to open them in a new page or tab.

    Even for things in my own profile.
