    Dunno if it's just me, but the "squint" preference seems to make the "mark all viewed" not work.

    Not just you. Here also.

    So, I'm signed in (name at the top of the page and everything), but when I tried to make a comment on an article (from the article view, not the forums view) I got:
    ERROR: please fill the required fields (name, email).

    Now, I don't see either name or email as a field, or anything else for that matter, at all.

    I know I've been a bit of a downer, but I do appreciate what you guys have done. Tons of work getting away from vB. Thanks for being so dedicated to this place.

    The "mark all viewed" button continues to behave erratically... or not at all.
    Also, a thread on the index last updated by a guest comment shows a blank space in the "last by" area of the thread information.

    The flag tool just flashes an empty dialog box and floating 'X' window close handle in Firefox 7.

    Reported stuff in The Dump (staff forum) is hard to read with the dark theme.

    Just tried making a post on the 7970 Article, from the Article page, not the discussions page and am getting a hard error page saying that "Name and Email" need to be supplied.

    I can confirm this problem.

    I've definitely been moving slower on issues than I'd planned because of week-long stability issues that have been inflicted on our server. My stress level's been thru the roof all week and I've barely coded a lick.

    And to preemptively answer the obvious question: No, I do not correlate the performance issues with the migration to Vanilla. We were fine for the first 24 hours; there were mistakes made by our host Monday night that I believe we've fully recovered from as of yesterday evening.

    @Lincoln: It's not that the un-highlighted color matches the background, it's that the page number is actually still highlighted as an active link. This thread is currently on page 4, but I can still click the 4th page.

    And yeah, the "squint" option appears to mess up lots of links and things like preview post, etc.

    One thing I'd like to see return among other things would be a view count for threads. Not really for any important reasons but it's always nice to see how popular a thread is, or at least how many people actually know about what's going on.

    Even on the default theme you can still click the last page, it's just a different color.

    Dunno if this has been discussed/requested. When embedding YouTube videos, can the shortened link (youtu.be) be added to the auto-embed?

    I added it to core months ago... with the www on it. :rolleyes: Will be fixed in next Vanilla update.

    Another bug: "mark all viewed" does not work, but viewing a thread does clear the "unread posts" flag.

    Vanilla, after I posted a long comment, offered me an Add Comment box that was about 8X the height of the normal one. For an example what I consider long comments, see the printing comment in the latest Linux thread I started, in software, operating systems.

    Is Vanilla becoming an AI??? :D

    It's (somehow, impossibly) related to the "shrink text" option. I haven't dug into it yet.

    +1 for this one. That would be rad.
