@Davidasailor26 Custom Forum config issue is fixed. Thanks for the heads-up!
Well, I can get to the page now. Unfortunately when I check the boxes and click the button I now get this error -

I had manually ignored one of the Catalina forums before I went to the custom form. Not sure of that is contributing to the error.

It looks like I accidentally created the wrong type of indexing that booted inserts that weren't unique. It wrote 21 of the forum ID's so you got most of them, I suspect. :) Table indexing was changed so I think that error is resolved.

First of all congrats on surviving the conversion, lot of work evident!

Not a big deal but had to really work at finding a way to get to “Boat Info”.

Nice. Working well now!

Anyone figured out where the thread tool "mark as read" went? The issue where reading a thread did not cause it to appear as having been read seems to still exist. I used to be able to use that tool and as long as I hit the back button before opening another item it would "stick" as "read".

Up at the top on the right now. Untested so give it a try and let me know.

I love the new look and some of the new emoji's will be fun to play with.

I had subscribed to several sub-forums and was getting email alerts when people posted in those forums. For example "Hunter Owners" and "Trailer Sailors".
I can't find the path to set that up again. Help?

There are two ways to accomplish that in the New World Order. First, you can go to the forum you want to follow and click the Follow button, on top of the list to the right. Or, you can configure a Custom Forum to contain only the forums you want to see by hiding the ones you don't. That won't get you email alerts but figured it's worth mentioning. :)

There's also a feature that will send you a daily email with the five most popular topics from the prior day, but the link for that seems to be MIA. I'll follow that up.

Ok, I found it. It is now a forum level action, so you are marking all threads in the forum as read, not a thread level tool. What others should know is you have to be on the page that shows the threads in the forum, not inside a thread where you see the messages, to see the button up top.

He Phil, I know we needed the “Up Arrow” - Top of Page - in the footer when in test mode.
I see an up and a down arrow Icon floating at the bottom of the page. It looks to be a XenForo feature. This would allow you to remove it from the Footer if the floating icons continue. They appear when I start to scroll and disappear when typing.

I wondered where the Paragraph In and Out formating had moved.
Found it as an option in the bullet format tool​
  1. Also the paragraph numbers choice
