Actually, I think I found out what I wanted.

It's mostly like your screenshot (http://i.imgur.com/8aDdV7i.png), but under "Show Me", change the option to "Content items only".  That keeps it from showing an entry for every post.

Oh, you're right.  I'll fix that up.

I don't know, I'll try to find out.

Ugh. This is a big deal for me. Does anyone else view forum threads this way? I always want to see the newest port firsts. I can see how to sort the list of threads by last reply, but I'm not sure why I can't do this in a thread itself. It's extremely irritating to be seeing everything backwards, and to have to go to the last page and scroll down every time. 

 

Kasper, is this a function is IPS at all?

I haven't found anything in my travels of the forum.

Also, they're right, this forum is hard on the eyes.

Just noticed that if you highlight text in a post, it gives you a button to quote it. Like so:

That is very nice. Almost as nice as the ability in the old forum to manually edit the quotes to split them up into separate pieces ;)

Thanks for this post, Mad Rocket Scientist. 

It's helping me figure out how to use the forums all over again. :)

So I featured this....but I don't know exactly what that does.

Let me know, eh?

Where's this "+Create" botton mentioned in the op? 

 

Is there any way to quote from someone not on the page? Like if I wanted to make a post that said "Jebediah Kerman said..."

Alright people, I'm trying to understand what just happened. I seems the forum got attacked by the Kraken itself. I had a perfectly good page until SQUAD decided to release the Kraken. and all my hard work got destroyed. Can someone explain me how to clean this mess. For unknown reason, tables are no longer supported. How am I supposed to format large amount of detailed data now?

SQUAD Upgraded the forums to a new software, with no BBcode editor.  Sorry, you could try spoilers?

I would suggest linking a spreadsheet of your data until we figure out something for tables; otherwise you can use the somewhat clumsy workaround of manual HTML tables, details here: http://forum.kerbalspaceprogram.com/index.php?/topic/126596-tables-in-posts-and-signatures/

Ugh... Apparently it only appears on desktops. So next question, on a tablet is there any way to force it into desktop mode?

16. Want to use tables like before? Let NecroBones help you:

Just in case you didn't see it in the other thread-- I'd suggest taking out the sentence at the end, starting with "You all noticed", since it's irrelevant to the workaround.

I did some googling, and it looks like IPS does not support viewing topic replies in reverse chronological order.  (Latest replies/comments in a thread at the top of the page)

https://community.invisionpower.com/topic/334896-add-ucp-setting-posts-in-reverse-chron-order/?do=findComment&comment=2457697

I feel like I'm reading everything upside-down, and in reverse. There is a feature in the list of topics to go to the latest unread reply by hitting the blue circle, or yellow star, but it only works if if it's unread. If you've already read the latest reply in a topic, and want to go to that last reply, you have to open the topic, go to the last page, and scroll all the way down. 

This is totally maddening. It's such a simple setting to have in a forum...

Also related, does anyone know why Settings and Content is grayed out and un-clickable in this menu?

The side bar color is that #A6BAD9? I think I like it better then #C3C3C3 that I'm using.
Would you be willing to share the code for those changes in the pic.

Those are just headers for categories.

Those are headings for the white menus beneath them.

Does the fact that they looked like grayed out entries in the list make me stupid, or the UI stupid? I feel like it could go either way...

Can a moderator or Kasper comment on reverse-chronological order? Am I correct in assuming that it's just not an option with IPS?
