    vBulletin had a useful function where you could click on the number of replies for a thread and it would display a rank-ordered list of the inmates who posted in the thread.

    Does Xenforo have anything comparable?

    PLEASE increase the number of posts per page. I spend more time waiting for the next page to load than to skim through the irrelevant posts in the killboy thread.

    Animated gifs for Avatars are supposed to be discontinued.
    Part of the animated gif was shown in the avatar till now.
    As of today I have an avatar in perpetual vertical motion sticking its tongue
    out at me.
    When I click on this critter my profile is brought up with the original
    animated gif.
    Go figure.
    Looks like the new format is a work in progress.

    Avatar animation was removed on the main page to reduce clutter.

    Old subject that I have asked about several times but, when will smugmug videos be supported? Is there a time frame set for this to happen?

    I'm looking for the same thing. I found it most useful at times.
    Anyone have any ideas?

    I appreciate the time and effort involved in sorting all this out and keeping ADV going.

    Are you referring to the Inmates forum, or that clicking on an avatar pulls up their info?

    I created a new Avatar on my laptop.
    Not logged in and looking at the site from a conventional laptop.

    URL: http://advrider.com/index.php

    Accessibility seems to be the same as if logged in.
    Posting is restricted to being logged in.

    Quite different from the view from my iPad 2.
    Which I normally use.

    Hi
    I was wondering if it is possible to change the order of the forum and thread list for phones?
    It is quite a maze one has to run through to get to a thread you want to post on with a phone. It would be much easier if threads you watch and forums you watch were the first in line instead of the threads and forums you are ignoring.

    Just a thought.
    Thanks….. YRU

    Click on the Media button, the one that looks like film strips. In the box that pops, put in the url to the video. For this example I put in this address:

    Code:
    https://vimeo.com/76325458



    The final code (that the software fixes for you) should be
    Code:
    [MEDIA=vimeo]76325458[/MEDIA]
    You can also see how to cut the original url down to do it manually if you like.

    I must be blind....I don't see the media button. All I see is the paper airplane "share" button....but that code you posted isn't an option. Where is the media button located on the vid? Thanks!!!

    The media button is here, in the reply window, two to the right of the smilie emoticon.

    Insert the video url you get from Vimeo.

    This doesn't come from vimeo itself. It's the url in the address bar to the page.
