Due to some complaints, the private message inbox now more closely resembles the pre-Dazah version. Archived conversations no longer show in perpetuity.

The bug related to post attachments that got introduced over the past couple of days should now be fixed. Attachments to private messages will be coming soon.

We're working on making things a bit different on the DaniWeb/Dazah backend. As a result, there were some routing issues that caused logins to break today if you weren't already logged in. These should be fixed now, sorry for any inconvience.

This is an important notification that DaniWeb is in the process of being upgraded, and will most likely be down and/or in read-only mode for the remainder of th is evening. When it comes back up, it *may* be buggy ... we'll see. I've rewritten every single line of code from the ground up over the past 4 months.

Hi Dani. I was wondering is it possible to add a feature where when there is a watched article update(s) on top on the menus where it say (Watched) have some sort of notification similar to received mails. I noticed the requirement of this feature after I wasn't able to connect to my emails, and since I'm using a blackberry I also don't see when there is an update unless I open the first top post/article to see if there are updates or not, yes Dani do send notification emails, and also do move the updated post upper, but if …

Hi Moderators/Admins, I don't think this forum does have alert/notification plugin installed. (This is a small but great tool - It will show users when they return on this forum how many replies or comments other members made on their posts). I know people can subscribe and all latest replies or comments will be mailed to them but that's not I am asking here. I am asking for alert plugin that actually shows all comments or replies details with a small red icon besides the username. I believe adding that plugin will certainly help all the forum members!

I remember browsing this website a long time ago, and it looked pretty good. But today, with 1080p monitors being pretty standard, the layout/colors look kind of inferior. For instance, there is very little contrast in areas that matter beyond the basic color scheme. Keep in mind, this is just my opinion and I don't expect you to change your website just because of me, but I think if the color theme/scheme had more shades of colors to it, text/things would be far easier to read, easier to locate, and keep track of. What mostly bothers me is the home …

Ive noticed that Shift+Tab (back-switch focus) is not working at all. Again, its key-binding issue. And another useful option to be added for users to choose what behavior do they like. Or implement it site-wide without making an option.

I keep getting email invites to join live webchats on here. I'd love to come, but the invitation is sent on the same day that the event is happening, with no specific time, so I almost always miss them. email screencap: http://gyazo.com/b28a9d1a21f7b9d084c7e55b4bd801da.png

Yesterday I deftly managed to submit a post with a broken image. See: [retrieving photos from hard drive](http://www.daniweb.com/hardware-and-software/threads/482573/retrieving-photos-from-hard-drive#post2110926) The image immediately followed the first line but now returns an HTTP 404 error, possibly because I removed it as an attachement. Wasn't immediately aware of the problem because my browser had already cached the URL and displayed the image as expected. The relevant HTML currently looks like this: <p>Use a USB to IDE/SATA cable, such as this:</p> <p><img src="http://static.daniweb.com/images/attachments/3/f9067ace1e4e33c0be2abfa04f623929.png" alt="" title="USB to IDE/SATA cable" /></p> Apologies for messing it up. Would it be possible to fix the broken image? (replacement attached …

I am honestly baffled that there is almost NO help for anyone using JavaFX. For those of you who know Java like the Face on a clock, I encourage you to take some time to learn Java FX. The beginners need people like you.

I just received FIVE emails from DaniWeb, all of them are identical. Why??

Just some stuff that I come across often: 1. Would save me a second of time and effort if the "Username" field would get auto focused on the login page. I know it's a minor improvement, but I like it ^^. Facebook does it, for example - I like the way I can just start slamming on my keyboard as soon as the site is loaded, without having to click the "email" field. 2. The header gets a "fixed" position as soon as I scroll down anywhere. I find that useful, but in my opinion, something is missing in the …

Is there an option so that times in Daniweb are displayed in the default (user selected) time format? For example, times on my system are displayed as 18:56 instead of 6:56pm.

My Private Messages counter (at top of page) wasn't showing any new messages when I logged on just now, nor did the 'you have a new PM wanna read it' box pop up. However, I did have a bunch of unread new PMs sitting in my inbox (email notifications told me).

I know I promised not to make anymore drastic changes to the API, but ... well ... I lied. The two API write operations (voting on posts and watching/unwatching articles) used to always respond with a JSON object in the format success: true or success: false Now, they return the following: * If successful, a JSON object with information about the action that was performed * If unsuccessful and JSON was requested, an HTTP 400 error * If unsuccessful and JSONP was requested, a JSON object with a bad request error message

I would like to suggest you remove any results marked as "Solved" from this list. I presume it simply looks for any thread with 0 replies not in the Community Center? I would argue that if something is marked as solved, even with 0 replies, it is not unanswered (in a manner of speaking).

I just wanted to say that the menu bar at the bottom of the page is great. Nice job Dani and whomever else worked on this idea. My only problem that I can not is with regards to the cursor being hovered over any link in IE8 because when I do, a status bar shows up at the bottom left corner of the page which covers up the fields "Recently Updated Articles" and "Recommended". Other than that (and it's not a big deal really), I find that menu bar to be quite usefull. Just my 2 pennies!

When i am looking at an old article/thread, why is it that i see this message: > This article has expired from our marketplace I was viewing this from my posts voted up page, and for some odd reason i can't see a thread that is 5 months old but i can see one that is older.

Since the overhaul, there are some nice feature of the old system that are missing in the thread titles. By thread titles, I mean as they show up in the forum listings (the icon (new, read, etc.), title, # of replies, time of last post, etc.). Some of the features of the old system that I have in mind are the following: * When hovering over the title, the first few lines of the question used to appear. Now, there's nothing. * The number of up-votes / down-votes associated to the OP used to appear on the right of the …

Can anyone explain the "Filter Below Quality Threshold" setting in the "Threads that match your interests" panel on the Daniweb home page. I'm sure it has some carefully considered logic behind it, but thus far impenetrable by yours truly. [B]Airshow[/B]

[B]Hi there!! I defined my control panel to send me an instant email notification when someone reply to a thread I created, but unfortunately, I don't receive any email notification when someone reply to my thread. What should I do in order to solve this trouble? Thanks in advance!! atar.[/B]

I've noticed you have a simple footer in the bottom, and i think it would be a good idea to add facebook, twitter, and rss feed buttons in the bottom right. These wouldn't be for the thread/section your on but for the whole website. I'm sure you have them somewhere else but this is just an idea i had because it will bring in more people via social networking. Atleast those are my 2 cents.. :D

Ok so I am obsessed with shortcuts and currently I over-use a tool called [URL="http://shortmarks.com/s.php"]Shortmarks[/URL]. I want to create a shortcut to use for DW to help save some more precious seconds but need some help with this one. For each book mark entry you need to enter the following: [CODE] Keyword Name Direct link Search link Post data (optional) DW Dani Web http://www.daniweb.com/web-development/php/17 (INSERT SEARCH STRING) [/CODE] Its the search string that I can't get to work because the %s seems to be converted to an id and then it searches the id instead.
