It's not really a serious issue, however quite annoying: I want to find a post in the forum. I already have a link from the old forum, but I can't translate it to this version... (search is not a good option, since I don't remember either the text of the post or the topic :oops: I only want to find an attached file. However here is the link, maybe somebody can help me with it: http://www.wowace.com/forums/index.php?topic=7045.msg230326#msg230326
I've been frustrated by this a few times so far as well, but there's not much that can be done about it probably.
I did write up how to reproduce it but i guess I wasn't clear on the actual bug. Just now in FireFox3 as I was typing the first sentence of this post. I typed "wasn't" and then the spellchecker was trying to indicate that "wasn" is misspelled. It was failing to recognize the 't as part of the word. I have only seen this happen here on these forums with the WYSIWYG editbox.
I defaulted WYSISYG editor mode to disabled on my guild's vB forum because it has a lot of little issues and results in posts with 10x as many vbcode tags as necessary because it hides them from the user and isn't smart about them.
What is the appropriate place to post about issues with this site? I guess it's this thread. I clicked the Site Suggestions link in the forum and it sent me to a CurseForge tracker, and I really don't like the idea of going to a CurseForge page to report WowAce site issues.
It's nearly impossible to navigate. In order to find someone, I have to do a binary search by manually manipulating the page numbers in my browser's address bar. It needs an alphabetical index like the forum members list link has. It needs to let you jump more than 3 pages at a time without having to jump to the end or manually enter page numbers in your browser's address bar. Also, it should filter out any users who don't have any projects; apparently it's actually a CurseForge user list in the guise of an Author list?
About fixed-width: It sucks. As a compromise, you can do fluid / variable-width but have it expand to a fixed percentage of browser width. My guild's forum has sub-styles of each variable-width style that is a 75% width version for people that like narrower forum styles.
Better yet, give users the choice via vBulletin's style chooser functionality :p
