I have been having issues navigating past the first page of the Newsfeed. I am trying to see what the solution may be at the moment.

I click on the Insert Image (Ctrl+P), and then once I put an image link it says the An error has occured... Please contact your administrator

When I try to put an non-image link, this is what get:
Something went wrong. Please try again or contact the administrator.
This shouldn't be what you are doing as you are getting a different message, but you can still try with the link I used above to be sure:


Are you able to reproduce this strange behaviour on different devices / browsers?

I know this has been discussed quite a bit already but I'd like to reiterate the feedback on reformatting the home forum page into a list instead of a grid. Will most of us get used to it, maybe, but a grid is fundamentally more work to navigate. I love this forum and I'm also concerned some people may just get tired of these changes.

At this point I have the script I've shared previously in this thread that reformats the webpage on the client side and I'm considering putting more time into it now.

Tripled, I'm still not getting used to this hard to read home page that needs to be scrolled to be seen entirely.
Why not doing a survey asking the 9500 members what they would prefer for a front page?

@PlayfulPhoenix is currently AFK dealing with the biggest move of his life. Expect changes to stop for now until he has sorted that out. He is the main dev working on this, with back end help from another staffer. SFF.N is a hobby for us staff, we all have day jobs (and some of us have rather challenging extra responsibilities on top of that)


I am Head Editor (i.e. content creation only), not web dev, so directing feedback at me in here or via PM won't achieve much apart from me passing on messages, FYI :)

  1. Page navigation should be on top as well as the bottom. Now it's only on the bottom.
  2. Top level subforums (This one for example) on mobile (chrome on android) have too big of a background image. Just doesn't make sense when you get to it and all you see is the title, <mark read watch etc>. Shouldn't need to scroll just to see top 5 threads.
  3. Slowly getting used to current division: discuss, create, exchange? But why OOT in discuss again?
  4. I am sorry that this cropped up again and again, rightly so cause it's gotta be hurting your seo: article links are bust. See this and follow the linked article. Can't find it anywhere now.
