"Quick Links" instead of "View Your Posts"

Postby GraysonPeddie » Mon Feb 08, 2016 12:10 am

Why is there a "Quick Links" instead of one-click "View Your Posts?" Aren't "Quick Links" for mobile devices? Can't I have the one-click "View Your Posts" back?

I could quickly get use to "Quick Links -> Your Posts" but I just want to save a click each time I want to view my posts.

Update: It looks like this website is mobile-friendly which I tried it out in my smartphone. Nice improvement for sure, but for the desktop users, it would make sense to have frequently-used commands visible in the top row where "Quick Links" is in. In other words, hide the div element when the width is 640 pixels or less.

This is due to the upgrade to phpBB 3.1 I did this weekend. If you know any nicer phpBB themes I'd be happy to install them alongside the default prosilver theme you're seeing now.

My personal workflow is 'ctrl-t' (open new tab), type 'lin', and then picking from the autocomplete. No clicks! :)

Another note, the "remember me" checkbox seems useless per-browser session. I don't know if it's my end that's the problem, but as soon as I cleared the cookies for this site, I had to re-login which is my mistake. I'm going to try to restart my browser to see if the "remember me" preserves between browser sessions.

Update after a minute later: It seems to be working without having to re-login, but I'm going to wait and see if the "remember me" is still working.

Update 2 (2/11/16 09:52 EST): It's working this morning after I clear out the cookies for this site yesterday.

Update 3 (2/11/16 13:34 EST): Had to re-login again. "Remember me" does not last very long.
