Subscriptions should be under your UserCP on mobile, there is a link there to access your thread subscriptions. Let us know if you cannot find it.

Clicking on my username in the mobile version (tablet) does NOT display a "threads I've posted in" list.

Also, where is this "forum bug reports" list I saw mentioned? Don't find it.

I will have to test this when I can get to a tablet and post a solution for you.

I hate how that sidebar on the right takes up half the screen. The page is fixed width now too. No way to make the posts fill your entire screen.

No way to increase the number of topics shown on the main page either? Seems really low compared to before.

I just (2 weeks ago) cleaned up all my lists.
Now they are either gone or hidden so well I can't find them.
Also most of the pics in MY Galleries are "Under Review" what ever that means.
Not really liking the VBB change so far.

Hopefully that happens with this too.

I really enjoyed the AVS mobile as of late. I have not tried this new site on my phone yet. On ipad so far it's weird, but I'll reserve my harsh judgments till I give it a chance.

Guys, please be patient...The people from vB are getting things sorted out as quickly as possible. We did a lot of testing prior to launching the new site, but there were just so many things that we could test. VB is probably the most common forum software around, so once the details have been sorted out, you should have an easy time navigating, posting, etc.

As has been mentioned, please report problems here:

http://www.avsforum.com/forum/43-for...come-back.html

I recommend spending some time in your user CP first to get things set up the way you like them, but hopefully you guys have already done that...

I wish the I icon to jump to first unread post in a subscribed thread was bigger and more tablet friendly.

I can't figure out how to load a pic from my ipad yet either. Do you always need a URL ?


Edit: test



That's annoying. I'm no noob and I even often manually type out the [img] and then then [/img] after I paste a URL but this method seems too hard.

Pics make threads better IMO. This should be an area that should be easy to do. Most people use tablets and phones to load a pic so there should be an icon you just click and add then select the photo to upload. It should embed into the post automatically IMO. There's too much work and extra steps here.

Unless I am an idiot or doing it wrong ?

I actually liked that feature. It gave me a preview of which direction the thread was heading before I wasted my time clicking on it.

The problems are (98% of peoples problems anyway)

#1 . It's different. So it will take some time and learning to get accustomed to it.
#2 . The method for posting a picture sucks. I wish I knew a stronger word than "sucks" I could use because I would.
#3 . The option to jump to the last post in a thread, or the last unread post in a thread is not good. I'd say "sucks" actually.
#4 . The AVS mobile and tablet formats are not even competitive with the old one. They also "suck"

#1 can be fixed over time with simple bug fixes and waiting for people to get over the changes and relax.

#2 . Is a very serious detriment and threat to AVS. It has the potential to send AVS back to the stone age, and let other home theater sites rise up and diminish AVS importance over time. This could be a death sentence for AVS. There is simply no doubt about it- PICTURES make threads better. Posting a picture should be simple and nearly automatic so that a person with significantly less than average intelligence can do it easily. 80 year old grandmothers can send picture texts these days. Posting a picture should be as simple as clicking a "picture" icon - selecting the picture you want to post and clicking it. Done. Ton's of things have this simple functionality. It's a total joke we have to load an attachment, find that attachment URL and then paste it between [img] and [/img]. That should all be done automatically, and the format and size should happen automatically too. I expect better. Anything less with slowly cause great posters and posts to find their way to other forums that support such a thing. You can't have great posts without easy posting of pictures, and difficult posting process for pictures will lessen the amount of pictures people post, which degrades AVS and it's quality. You can't take for granted the quality on AVS, it comes from the members and it's not a god given right or an entitled automatic certainty. Loosing this to other places would be a death sentence for AVS. Crappy picture posting process supports that.

#3 . I've been a member over a decade, I remember the old code well- and I have been on other forums that use the same code as this. So if I can't figure out easily how to jump to the last post in a thread then it clearly "sucks". This is the feature most people use. This feature and button should be more easily visible, noticeable... and understood. In fact it should be set up so that you basically have to go out of your way to click anything else. I've seen so many complaints about this so far. Listen to what people are saying. Fix it please!

#4 . Mobile and tablet formats need improvement. There is too many functionality missing that was present on the old AVS mobile, and the format makes it harder to click what you want, or see what you want. This might take some time and additional user feedback but a great mobile site and app enhances AVS greatly and the importance should not be understated. Especially since most posters use both PC and MOBILE in conjunction with each other- I might snap a pic with my phone and load it up to AVS then later reply more with the PC. The mobile site isn't just about making it faster with less bandwidth requirements by making it plain and simple. Most people have wifi or fast cell phone service and modern smart phones- this crowd on this site especially. Speed isn't the problem. The problem is the lack of functionality, and the fact it's so simple it sucks. It's hard to click anything or move around, and you lack many features I find myself switching back the full PC version which text is unreadable and too small. You should not have to switch to the full site to do something like post a picture or attachment, or access a feature IMO. Bring all that stuff onto the mobile platform- but make the icons bigger and easier to click without clicking something else you don't want. And again it's very hard to jump quickly into a thread and jump to the last post in the thread from the mobile site- which is also a feature that many posters will use to follow up a thread they have engaged in. Not allowing this limits responses- many posters won't even bother to post something of quality because the effort is too high and it interferes with their lives too much. That's a shame. A big step backwards for AVS since the previous mobile site was very good and did not have these problems.

I hate to be too negative. I'll be patient and remain hopeful for improvements in these areas.

Things are moving along and a lot of things have been fixed in less than 48 hours, but there is still plenty of work to do, so I am asking for your continued patience. A lot of things that were working fine in the sandbox became broken on the the real launch...I don't know why. But VerticalScope and his team have been very diligent in responding to problems as fast as they can...they really are doing an excellent job with such an enormous task.

Once again I will remind everybody that you really should take a look at ALL of the sections in "tools/user cp" to set things up the way you want. Some of the settings are not where you might expect them to be, so check out EVERY sub section in the CP before assuming that something is wrong or not possible.

And once again, please report problems/bugs here:
