Quote2. At one time I already mentioned that turf out the sidebar menus in 2.1 is a silly solution, more easily is moving through administration panel when the sidebar menus are set as it is in 2.0, why did you leave from this solution? You want to say me that for you it was hard to do?
Quote3. Could you add the function to edit name of topic along with all title of answer? Such a possibility is in SMF only with moving the topic to other section. As for me it is needed option in the moderation.
Quote4. Personally the fact that SMF has modifications isn't disturbing me, but whether the extensions which turn on and off wouldn't be better? Thanks to this any files SMF wouldn't be modified by the particular modification.
Quote5. Why did you turf out the system of sending emails messages by SMF? The newest phpbb has this possibility and probably mybb also has this function, so why 2.1 hasn't? In my opinion it's a needed option thanks to which can send emails to users by forum without need to login on service provider own email.
Quote6. Why in 2.1 did you turf out on such a user profile like in 2.0? You turf out a salutation it mean Hello admin, I know that is a little detail but without his salutation is somehow differently, empty.
QuoteEven if you did a profile in popup then there could be these all information which are in profile 2.0. It mean salutation and user name, show unread posts since last visit, show new replies to your posts and is lack of this information: you have 1 message, 0 new, but it also hasn't in basic theme in 2.0, but in others themes is added, so I hope that this function will show in other themes to 2.1 and also in this upper profile is lack information about that the is user or are users to approve like it is in 2.0.
Quote7. Is a bug in news bar, if I'll add links to underline they're on whole window, and it shouldn't be like this, the underline of links should be the same like above.
Quote.8. Why added content in News and Newsletters isn't centre? In SMF 2.0 after adding anything it was fall into place like this:
Quote9. I don't like this to pass into private messages it is necessary to click into INBOX button in popup or into the title of the message. Better solution is that which is in 2.0 when I'm clicking into private messages and I'm in the box, in my opinion it is a better solution. The same is regarding to alerts it isn't possible to click into any messages in alerts only have to click in button ALL ALERTS to be in own alerts so as for me it is pointless solution.
Quote10. Why you cannot do or use nicer icons to the panel of administration?
Quote11. In my opinion theme curve2 isn't a nice theme, why you not tried that the new theme was better? Why you resigned from curve theme from 2.0? For so many years you are creating 2.1 you focused on the code of this project and on bugs, and you didn't work on theme curve2 which is average. You could leave basic theme from SMF 2.0 which is prettier than it in 2.1 which the better impression than curve2.
Quote12. Something's wrong in 2.1 in set the time up for the entire forum, I've the same settings of server on 2.0 and on 2.1 the clock is showing the hour to the back, otherwise why in 2.1 in Profile > Look and Layout hasn't that?
Quote13. Why in 2.1 hasn't function NOTIFY and SEND THIS TOPIC?
Quote14. An additional function would be useful in allocating the post so that it is possible to set where exactly the allocated post is supposed to be in a new topic, because currently to merge the allocated post it works on hours and dates of adding this post.

Thanks to this any files SMF wouldn't be modified by the particular modification.We've added dozens of additional integration hooks in 2.1 that will make it easier to add mods without actually editing the files, but it's not easy to write a system that would allow you to do everything without modifying files without rewriting most of SMF.
Quote from: Kindred on January 19, 2016, 07:57:47 AMwhat the heck does "turf out" mean? I have never heard that term... and you use it continually in your post...ewwww.... just looked it up. That is not an appropriate phrase to use and I take exception to your continual use of it.We removed some things based on discussion and analysis. If you don't like it, then add them back in via mod. We are not putting this back in or adding any new features at this point.Decisions were made. You don't like them? Choose a different theme and/or add mods. plain and simple... we're not going to please everyone with every choice.that covers the majority of your complaints.For your other complaints...well... for one -- this thread is not for reporting issues with 2.1 nor it it for requesting features... so, basically, your post doesn't actually belong in this thread at all.For reporting bugs... your report is less than useful - even if it was reported in the correct place (which it is not) since you don't indicate what actual version you are testing on.And as fort "you don't like this". that's nice... I can say "I do like this" and it has the same effect. We've made decisions as a team. Overall, I think they have been the correct decisions to move forward. There will always be folks who don't like the new development. That's why we continue to support the old version(s) for a long time after the release of the new ones. So, fine... you can continue to use 2.0.x until we release 3.0 and make 2.0 end of life.

QuoteWe can look into this.

QuoteI'm not sure exactly what you mean here...
QuoteYou can modify the popup to display additional details if you want.
QuoteThis should be fixed now
QuoteIt never has been. You can use the center bbcode tag to accomplish this if you want.
QuoteWhen you get a new PM, it will show up in the "My Messages" popup and you can click into the message from there.
QuoteWe like the ones currently in use. What did you have in mind that would be better?
QuoteIf you don't like it you can use another theme.
QuoteGo to Admin -> Features and Options and make sure the correct server timezone is selected. We did it this way because it's simpler.
Quote from: Kindred on January 28, 2016, 01:35:04 PMalmost all of what you posted is personal preference -- and I happen to (personally) disagree with your contentions regarding the theme, layout, icons, etc...
QuoteI would rather wait even as many as 6-10 years to get something that works!
Quotebut you don't see me over there demanding that they change the default to suit my desires.
Quoteand there are, at this point dozens of responsive themes for SMF 2.0.x
Quote what else do you want?
