The staff thought it may be a good idea to have a thread for Bugs/Issues/Problems and Ideas for the forums now that we've switched to XenForo, so feel free to post any here and we'll try our best to solve any issues.

Is the character limit inherent to the forum, or can it be changed? The issue I'm having is as a fanfic author: 10,000 characters translates into less than 2,000 words, which is rather small by the standards of almost every author currently active. It also means I can't edit my old chapters to correct the broken links to the following chapter

The Stay Log in function doesn't work after you leave your browser. I don't know if this just my browser is doing this, since I use my IPad and Safari when I'm on here. But I would like this to be look in to. And it seems blogs won't appear while your log out of Bulbagarden, I don't know if its viewing is only exclusive to members now, but I do feel bad for the non-members who can't look at them.

Blogs no longer being open to non-logged in users is intended.

Alright thank you for informing me about the blog change, wasn't sure if that the unviewing of blogs for non-members or non-logged in users was intended or not. Was just making sure.

Alright, two things I'm thinking will need to be fixed are, I can no longer see a list of users viewing a given thread or forum, and there doesn't seem to be an option to not include your signature in a particular post. Also, the aforementioned character limit, I'm also all for that being increased.

Oh, and you can't see previous posts in the thread when previewing posts, either.

Not sure if warnings are supposed to be seen by everyone, but if they are... I think they shouldn't be.
Where exactly are you seeing this?

Just wondering when will the password reset thing start if it already hasn't by now?

Looks like you can click on the arrow that shows up on the right side of the blogs button (or just hover over it for a few seconds) from the forums and there's a "Mark Blogs Read" options. That should do it I'd think.

We can't seem to create blog categories and blogs don't seem to be associated with the user anymore.

To clarify, I liked how on the vBulletin software, It was like having my own blog software installed. ALL blogs did go to a combined list, but we also had our own blogs that could be customized with categories, a blog name, etc.

Now it just seems like we are all contributing to the same blog.

Just curious; is invisible mode disabled for all users, or non-existent?

I think Reila is talking about being able to see your infraction via a tab on your profile.

I think people can see their own infractions and not everyone else's (though mods might be an exception to this, idk)

Is there a way to have the customization bar (with all the button options) visible when turning on the 'Use BB Code Editor'?

Bingo. The Warnings tab is only visible to that user and mods. I double checked this by visiting Reila's profile and it wasn't visible to me, so don't worry about it.

Is there still a way to change your user title? The name that appears under your username, in my case: Spooky lass? I can't find it anywhere...
