Love the NEW LOOK , noticed same with NAME of last poster .. personally the front page looks fantastic with all the Categories and articles , layout is fresh looking too , still need to get use to a few bits , font size is a little smaller and replying will take a few goes to get the correct reply going to the right person … i tried a moment ago but it posted below were i intended 😉 all good will work it out.
Thanks for the work all.

i’m really starting to miss this feature too.
- May 13, 2020 at 12:55 pm #442421
it’s easier to read.
only issue i’ve noticed is that the notifications on the right side of the screen don’t disappear when you read the reply.
- May 13, 2020 at 12:58 pm #442423
also, replying to someone puts your response down at the bottom of the thread now instead of under their post. not necessarily an issue, but definitely different than the previous user experience.

Well, change is constant. I guess this is now the “new normal” to steal a phrase that is already an overused cliche. I agree with above comments. I do like the layout of the home page now. When it comes to the forum posts – I miss seeing which forum a post is part of in the menu listing. Have to now click on a post to determine. However, this is pretty nit-picky.

One other small thing. There is a popout, at least on my screen, in the lower right hand corner that says “ERROR for site owner: Invalid domain for site key.” This seems to be something to do with Captcha setup.

This is really irritating me.

Wow, this format is so much faster for me, everything is visible almost instantly, normally I give up waiting to see some photos. 🙂

It is nice and fast – that is the first thing I noticed. Is this still Word Press, Rob? Love the look. Very clean.

I like this new look as well. Thumbs up to those taking the time to do this. I too have the “error for site owner” tag. Bothersome on my phone. Not so much on the desk top. To reply I’m using the work around someone came up with a while back. Hit reply. Wait for comment box to pop up at bottom of page. Scroll back to message you want to reply to and click reply again.

Looks like the “error for site owner” bug has been fixed. Outstanding! Thank you for the great work you’re doing @admin.

@admin @jasenkag @melody – hitting the reply button to someone once takes me back up to the top of the page and then scrolls down to a reply box. and then it puts the reply at the bottom of the thread for me.
but if i hit reply, wait for the page to scroll all the way up, then back down and hit reply again to the same person (and wait for it to scroll up and down again) it’ll put the reply under their comment.
- May 18, 2020 at 12:10 am #445350
i hit the reply button once, waited for the ride to come to a complete stop and then hit the reply button again. once the page stopped scrolling the reply box was under the right comment this time and now my reply will be nested and my ocd satisfied.

Beth, you only had to hit “reply” once because it was the last post so it was supposed to go to the bottom of the page anyway.
I hope that whoever fixed the “wandering reply” problem the last time (a few months ago I think) managed to do it here also. It’s okay for someone who manages to go into the forum all the time but but I don’t and it’s very tedious and time consuming scrolling back and forth all the time. Unfortunately, because of this problem I find myself commenting on a lot fewer images.
Thanks moderators for all your work 🙂
- May 20, 2020 at 11:56 am #446053
bobbie, if i hit reply once it goes to the bottom regardless of what i’m replying to. if i hit it twice it nests.

I have been absent for a while and was blown away when I logged on and saw the new look for the first time. Seems like most bugs have already been identified but the one thing I notice is the occasional lag or delay, especially when clicking on the Notifications window. Rather than taking you directly to your notification, it takes you to the top of the thread first, then there’s a pause for a few seconds, then it whizzes down to the relevant comment. OK once I worked out what was happening but before then I was a little confused.
Also, not having been present lately, I haven’t had too many notifications but when I have one telling me I have 2 comments, subsequent clicks on the links always take me back to the first one. The old system would go through them sequentially from memory?
Apart from all that, LS has become the goto place for anything photography-related for me…a sort of one-stop-shop for information, education, critique, how-to’s etc etc. Brilliant, and kudos to all involved in it’s creation and evolution. This humble tog is extremely grateful and as soon as I get regular daytime access to my computer back (hint hint wifey), I’ll be signing up for the monthly challenges.
- May 21, 2020 at 6:37 pm #446232
Theoretically, that notifications link should work exactly the same. This change has only been a new skin.
And thank you for the complement – gotta admit I love hearing them. lol

Agree about the new nice layout. Just a pity your reply gets added to the bottom of the page, specifically in throwdowns containing multiple images.
- May 23, 2020 at 1:03 pm #446374
hit the reply button, wait for the scrolling to stop and then hit it a second time. it’s doing it for me too.

Not sure if this is a new bug – but I just posted a photo and the timestamp read 2:30 AM. Its 12:27 PM where I’m from actually. Timezone’s not considered?
- May 24, 2020 at 11:42 pm #446540
I think it’s set to the server time zone. Which I think is either New York or LA.
- May 28, 2020 at 8:54 pm #446924
How can I now make my comment appear under the photo on which I’m commenting? That is, in the same chain of comments on specific photo instead of the bottom of a much longer chain with multiple photos? I’ve scrolled through here and don’t see the answer.
If I hit reply twice, my reply posts, and I get a message that my 2nd reply is a duplicate.
Thanks for help. I agree with Bobbie – it makes me not want to comment much anymore.

i use chrome. i’ve cleared all of the ls cookies (awprotools, doubleclick.net, fb, google, lightstalking.us), and set all of the permissions to allow. and turned off all of my extensions. i tried IE and still couldn’t get the reply to work correctly without hitting it twice.
when i cleared the cache and tried to reply it initially puts a reply box under the comment i’m replying to and then scrolls up to the top of the page and then back down to the bottom of the thread where there’s a reply box.

@loki Hi, Beth, I use Chrome. I cleared my cache etc. like you suggested. I’ll see where this comment lands when I hit “submit!”
- May 29, 2020 at 7:55 pm #446987
clearing the cache didn’t work for me either. hitting reply once, waiting for the scrolling to stop and hitting reply again gets my replies in the right spot. just hitting it once or double clicking reply puts the reply at the bottom for me.
