Related posts is a PITA.

If you're introducing new functionality, then by all means publicise it, but please default it to OFF. If' we're interested we will try it and that means that we will also have found the on/off switch!

My bank just did this. The original online worked rather well and was intuitive. The new, bleeding-edge version doesn't and isn't, and still full of bugs. Bah! Humbug!

While I'm in rant mode, please can we have the icon descriptions back. Much easier to find using a text search.

We're working to improve the relevancy of Related Threads. This will include specifying the threads to only the specific forum you're in, as well as adjusting the overall algorithm to better understand the content of each thread and post. In the meantime, as I mentioned above, you can off Related Threads on desktop via your User CP's Edit Options page. I'll also pass along the image size feedback you guys shared.

Just to clarify, are you seeing the black overlay screen across multiple threads? If so, can you please let me know what device you're using (i.e. PC or Mac) what browser you're on, and whether or not you've disabled cookies in your browser? Thanks!

Thank you for your reply, Jason.
When I go to New Members page (I always start there first) and attempt to reply to a new member, as soon as I click on Reply this BLACK PAGE comes up In My Face! I have to leave and re-enter the New Members section. Once I do that, no more BLACK PAGE and I can continue reading whichever pages or threads I want to read.

EDIT: I neglected to mention how much better REPLY works now./edit

Windows 7 with Chrome, ad blocker and cookie blocker enabled (the reasons I put up with Chrome).

"Infinite Scroll" is stupid, but not as bad on Jaguar Forums as it is on OTHER forums that have threads with hundreds of pages or more. Think about 2,488 posts WITH PICTURES loaded infinitely, and then have someone with a tiny little older phone trying to NAVIGATE through almost three thousand posts on One Page. Idiotic. That little phone has to Load and Display maybe 2,000 pictures???? I don't even bother using my phone for forums, just my desktop.

The ONLY good thing about "Infinite Scroll" (doesn't matter if 'everyone is going to it') is that it can be TURNED OFF!!!

You really biffed it when you added it in here.

Thanks for those details. The overlay we're using to introduce Infinite Scroll's new new features is currently dependent on cookies. Essentially, we add a cookie when you first see it, and that cookie tells the site not to show it to you again going forward. We are looking at potentially adjusting how this is implemented, but for the time being, you can avoid seeing it repeatedly by allowing cookies for jaguarforums.com (This also has the added benefit of the site remembering your login between visits).

We've implemented a system that rolls only a few pages in and out of your browser at a time. What this means is that if you're on, say, page 52 of a thread, we're only going to display the previous page (51) and the next page (53) in your browser. As you then scroll down to page 53, page 54 will be loaded in, but page 51 will be phased out in favor of page 52. This helps to significantly decrease the number of photos your phone (or computer) needs to have loaded at any one time.

Well that was just a little joke, I didn't mean to shut down the whole post.

Today I had the same problem as SinF with the "check out what's new" page superimposed on my screen, but without the charcoal background (which effectively locks the user out of interacting with any element unless they know where the "exit, click here" button is hiding at the bottom.)

Firefox quantum, iMac.

I simply enabled cookies for This Site Only, and everything seems to work fine.
The Obnoxious BLACK PAGE hasn't appeared since I did that.

Which version number of Firefox Quantum are you running?

Is there anything specific that you find to be particularly clunky? And if you don't mind me asking, which version of Windows are you currently running?

Glad to hear the issue is now resolved for you.

Clunky mess on Safari too, at least with infinite scroll turned on. Fortunately we can disable it. As you open a thread that's been added too, the loading starts. You scroll down but as you do and pages above fill in the loading, you're taken back up and it takes too long to scroll to the last message.

Version 62.0.3. I can recreate it consistently by clearing my cookies and cache. As you can see, "Exit Guide" text is in white, and if against a white background it can't be seen for the user to know how to make the help screen disappear. In this example there's a picture behind it, so you can just make it out.

Windows 7 Pro, the page loads slower,the drop in prompts up top,the related posts etc. It's all clunky & aggressive, the site used to flow seamlessly now the seams abound. I even tried it on Windows 10 as well, same thing.

Edit :
Just disabled infinite scroll & related threads = much better. Seems Jag forums are much like my X308, over engineered in the name of vanity lol.

Thanks for the screenshot and information. We unfortunately haven't been able to recreate the issue on our own Firefox 62.0.3. What, if any, adds-on do you have installed in Firefox? This can help us better reecreate the experience you're having. If you prefer, you're welcome to PM me the list.

Thanks, we're continuing to look at ways to streamline the overall experience, so I'll pass this feedback along. I'm glad to hear disabling infinite scroll did the trick for you.

I came here to complain about Infinite scroll too. I keep getting lost and having to start over to TRY to get back to what I was reading. I am a computer stumbler and can barely feel my way through many computer things. I will try the "disable" option. Fingers crossed.

Infinite scroll no more! I can't find any way of disabling it in my edit options! Was the feature removed and now I am stuck with infinite scroll? Plus once I selected infinite scroll, I could no longer "Quote" a reply and when I do reply, the reply is way-way-way down on the bottom of my screen after the infinite scroll on the "related Thread" ends. How do I get rid of infinite scroll?

This is really putting a damper on my forum experience!

You should see a toggle to "Disable Infinite Scroll" at the bottom of the Edit Options page's Thread Displays Option section, but no worries, I went ahead and disabled infinite scroll on your account for you. You should now have the old pagination setup again.

To help us better troubleshoot the quote issue you experienced, can you please let me know what device and browser you used when the error occurred?

Thanks!

Attached is a screen shot of the bottom of my options page. I do not see any infinite scroll on the bottom of the Options page.
When I select any "quote" box my screen turns grey and locks up the thread. I have to go back then forward again to get the thread I was reading.
