    Hello ConceptArt Community - Official Bug & Feature Requests Thread

    Hello all!

    I'd like to introduce myself, my name is David Ahmad, founder of http://vBSocial.com and the Chief Technology Officer of ConceptArt.org. I am responsible for all aspects of technology concerning CA.org.

    My main specialty is the development of advanced technology for website platforms such as vBulletin and Wordpress. I am excited to be joining the ConceptArt Team and am looking to push the technology and infrastructure of ConceptArt in an entirely new way. An art movement that will push ConceptArt years into the future, and it starts now!

    So onwards:

    1. Please list any issues you find on the site, including design & functionality.
    2. List things you love, and find great about the site.

    ~David

    Hi. Could we have link colours other than black? Having them black makes it hard to spot a link in a paragraph of text.

    hi

    first, i like to see the website management evolving and being active

    things i like:
    -the new top bar is nice, it's always more intuitive having icons and signs than text
    -that paintover idea is just awesome, hope it will be not buggy. you could also add annotations functionality (some balloons to point things quickly)


    suggestions:
    -a quicker way to upload images (less click and waiting time). the attachment manager is good, and the image button too (but they are a bit slow and the browse dialog should permit multiple selection)

    i think it's best to make the quick reply text box a drap & drop area

    -also you can suggest categories to the images after uploading it like the deviant art way

    -the color scheme may be better (i'm sure it's temporary) you can ask users to make color scheme and pick the best


    and thanks for your efforts (to all managing folks), this website is still the best of internet

    I'm also liking the new site, except the colour scheme. Can there be an option to switch it back to the old theme please, I have seen the option there before the move, but no sign of it now. Also, can we have the hangout button back? The CA hangout is running quite strong and people were coming in from the site, it would be a shame to make it private just for the participants, slightly counter productive towards the community ^_^.

    Edit: I also feel it's a bit cluttered suddenly...

    Ok also getting the
    'sorry you already posted that 5 mins ago' message ... mixed with the odd 'database error' page or two.. all the best in sorting stuff - liking the look of the top bar and great to have the thanks button back

    Hmm aslo seem to have a never ending 'saving' situation when saving an edit to posts - if I click 'go advanced/save' in that situation it seems to sort it...

    Ok... going to give up trying to edit that last post.... just to say scratch the comment about saving a post edit - it's just acting up period.. messages about my edit being too sort when not, many database error pages, my post disappearing then appearing again & not saving my edits... so I'll just leave it for now and check back later!

    Keep up the good work and I look forward to checking out the new features when CA is stable again.

    Hmm something else I've noticed is when I click thanks (thumbs up symbol on the left of the two thanks options) for a post it re-loads the whole thread and puts my browser window back at the top of the page ... however If I click the thanks 'user list' (thumbs up on the right of the two with 'thanks' written next to it) it doesn't reload the page and just updates the thanks as it should.

    Unfortunately there does also seem to be a slight issue with that too - I was the 3rd person to click that option on your last post - when I clicked 'others' to check I was there it has now permanently got the little pop up window showing - cannot get it to go away no matter what I click (guess it will go once I reload the page.)

    The Quick Navigation at the bottom of each thread is a waste of space. It would be better if it was a duplicate of the links at the top of the thread, which is what it was used to be. Currently, clinking top is quicker to navigate back.

    Welcome here David, looks promising what you're about to do with CA!

    A more social approach to CA is very good in my opinion, I already love the notifications feature in the top bar.

    Only I would suggest a darker Forum background than the content background color and not as it is now.
    But as it is in work I think you guys will change that however.

    And as zou suggested, an easier to use Image uploader would be so beneficial.

    Thanks for your work David! Looks promising so far.

    Little suggestion I have:
    Can you guys make the huge black "bar" under the banner, featued artists, ... smaller? The one that says Crit Week and has these icons to navigate.
    With the banner together it takes more than half of my screen, which is a bit too much imo.

    Wow that's a lot of changes here! I like it! But the remember me button doesn't seem to work and I wonder why there are two thanks buttons?

    yeah we need to remove the tiny thanks thumbs up as it makes the page reload.

    we are going to keep the white theme, but it is wip currently. once it is done we will consider doing one that's darker. The one we have here now is getting shifted a little warmer and less cold gray.

    great thread and thank you all for the feedback. super thanks to david for helping make this place better too.

    the hangout button should link to the lounge post with the three hangouts listed. apparently the single hangout is filling up. I can get that.

    Redesigned navigation coming shortly. Almost done. Which will solve quite a few of these issues and improve navigation tremendously with a more custom feel than existing..

    -Works with mobile phones/tablets/pcs
    -less clicking/autohover
    -Responsive to touch
    -Works with javascript/non-javascript enabled browsers
    -Cross browser support
    Internet Explorer 7+
    Firefox 2+
    Safari 4+
    Opera 10.50+
    Chrome 4+

    The similar threads in the first post of a thread is a bit annoying. Can we move them out of the the posts to the bottom where they were?

    Admin stuff. Moderated posts I've approved are not clearing on the admin panel, and seem to be showing up flagged as moderated on the forum, but aren't. Check out name changes in Support.

    Also the flag on the top bar to show moderated posts etc is not.

    No. we need these for improving search engine rankings and driving traffic to users posts and the rest of the site. However we can add a separator line of ..............................................END OF THREAD..............................

    or something to show they are not related I think.
