1. "Flattened forums" option now available.This appears to be working for me now with one minor exception. It seems that if a thread is "pinned" then it will not appear in the superior forum list.
For example this thread on the GalCiv2 site does not appear in the Off-topic forum but the wincustomize thread does even though both are in the Forum Issues forum which is a subforum of the Off-topic forum on the GalCiv2 site.
This is not that big a deal but if it can be fixed then that would make it consistent.
This was done on purpose. Some forums have many pinned posts, and others have few (but they might be important).
At the moment, we are limiting each forum to 10 pinned posts. If the Stardock Games forum, for example, had 3 pinned posts that were important, they would get drowned out due to the number of pinned posts it's sub-forums have. Since pinned posts are generally deemed important and are specific to a forum, I felt it was ok to keep these "unflattened." If you disagree, feel free to suggest a solution
I don't see there really being an easy fix for this...
Update: The fix for the "reply doesnt show" bug didnt work. I just posted a reply, and it didnt show up in the thread, even though I know it got posted, because I click "My Replies" and it says I have the last post. I know that it will appear after 1-2 minutes, but it is annoying anyway.
Just reporting, so Bara can be aware of it
Thank you. Brad (Frogboy) also reported that it is still broken. Investigation is ongoing
