Title: Consolidation of SMF Forum Software Update Changes/Suggestions
Post by: Corrine on July 21, 2022, 07:54:27 PM
As a result of the recent forum software update, LzD members may want to make some profile adjustments.


Note: This topic will be updated as needed.  (Yes, as a pinned topic, the post subject is in a bold font.  This is another change resulting from the software update.)

When looking around about another issue, I discovered that it was possible to turn on the like feature for members to use when they like what another person posted.  Although it isn't fancy, it is a feature that wasn't available before.

The like option is shown below the post and above the member's signature in the forum of a 👍 with the word "Like" next to it.  If you'd like to know when someone has liked one of your posts, you can enable an Alert by following the steps below:

1.  At the top of the forum is your member name followed by "My Messages" and "Alerts. 
2.  Click Alerts and select "Settings" in the box that opens.
3.  Under the "Posts" section, check the box to receive an Alert "When one of my posts is liked".

Note: You can also select other options there as well, such as, "Follow topics I create and reply to" which would be very helpful if you have requested assistance.

Although I did not discover a way to modify the format, the forum name now appears in the upper right corner of LzD.

There is now a dark mode theme available for members who prefer dark mode over light mode.  To use the dark mode theme, do the following:

1. Click on your name in the left-hand corner at the top of the forum.
2. Click on "Look and Layout".
3. Under "Current Theme" select Change.
4. Scroll down to "Lunarfall" and click "USE THIS THEME".

It looks a bit different to change it back to the forum default:

1. Click on your name in the left-hand corner at the top of the forum.
2. Move the mouse to the person image, which will show as "Profile Details" and click on it.
3. Under the "Menu" heading, select Forum Profile > Look and Layout.
4. Under "Current Theme" click Change.
5. Scroll down to "Lunarfall" and click "USE THIS THEME".

Follow the above instructions to reverse your selection.
