Re: Some things never change...

Has anything changed? IMO - NO. Users are still griping about the browser's faults. Problems still arise concerning forum staff and users. It isn't like there is a wide spread revolt or acceptance of Avant. There are probably more downloads than before, that doesn't mean much except people are tryi...

Re: Way I DID NOT switch to firefox....yet :)

K Y DAVE--there is one developer, Anderson Che, and a bunch of us users who donate our time to the Forum. Your attitude needs adjusting . Yes, Sara, I've heard the 'one developer' many times, no need to re-visit that tired tale. It's just an 's' on the word developer. Not a point that needs debatin...

Re: Way I DID NOT switch to firefox....yet :)

This could be debated to no end... One consideration is the number of downloads that are redone by users getting another and another new beta version. Another is the user that downloads, then trashes Avant due to problems or not liking something. So the number of downloads compared to actual users a...

Re: Reverted to 10.2 52 and wow

I think some of the problem is with the new RSS reader. I think it is accessing feed info and slowing down the entire function of the browser.

It's too bad about it too, I'm interested in using RSS, but version 11 doesn't work dependable enough to use it. So, i'm stuck with 10.2 build 25.

Re: Way I DID NOT switch to firefox....yet :)

yeah, I know, it always works perfect for you... I guess, that's why that there's so many users posting complaints on the forum. If you need elaboration, try looking at the forum and see what users are complaining about instead of saying, "It works for me." I've been complaining about the RSS Feed s...

Re: What is RSS>?

I feel that there is a misconception of RSS as described above. A RSS FEED is NOT distributed or sent out from a web site. It is usually published to their own server as XML, PHP or other web code. Then FEED READERs contact the server and down load the info and then it is decoded and becomes availab...

Re: New Messages Not Working Correctly

The text that says " 0 new messages " is actually for your PMs if I am understanding you correctly. There is a link that says " View New Posts " just above the header that says " Forum " and it never displays a number like we used to have in phpBB2. Thanks for pointing out my error DrDrrae.

Re: New Messages Not Working Correctly

Anyone have a solution to the NO NEW MESSAGES problem? It's been 3 days and I have no new messages since the installation of the phpBB 3.

Is it a setting that I need to change?

After I have been logged out for a couple of hours and return to the forum and login again, there are no new messages being shown by the software. I know there are new messages that have been posted, I can tell by the post time. I haven't made any changes in the User Control Panel. Yesterday it was ...

It will probably stop opening in your preferred style when your browser cache and files are cleared.

I will confirm it.

From my perspective, NOTHING has changed in relation to the RSS coding.

AVANT RSS still doesn't update, doesn't remove messages, doesn't sort in correct order.

The selected tab's progress is shown in the address bar, but if you open several tabs, the non-selected tabs do show progress bars on my PCs.

UPDATE a RSS Feed = empty page (about:blank)

If you UPDATE a feed, Avant ver 11.5 build 7 is unable to load the feed and the page stays empty (about:blank).
