A chainlink icon would be ideal.

Re: Forum has been upgraded (report issues here)

If possible would bold be any better ⤴ ⤴ *edit* I think it might be already in bold by the looks of the thickness? It's not already bold. But like I wrote before, making it bold doesn't make a difference. It does here in a post, because posts use a large enough font that bold makes a difference. He...

Re: Forum has been upgraded (report issues here)

The new Quote return arrow looks damn fugly to me plus it looks like its taken viagra. :P While I don't agree with your description, I do think that the icon is wrong. Perhaps a page icon would be better suited. So far you're outvoted by the members that think it is an improvement over the ↑ arrow....

I want to enhance the wishlist with another suggestion: A function, which indicates the topic starter. To give you an impression here is a link to a (random) thread in the German Firefox forum. Found an extensions that does something similar: https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/extension/topic_autho...

Referring you to earlier post on the same topic: viewtopic.php?f=47&t=260872#p1409208

Login as: login to your Linux Mint account after you boot up your computer. Update happens automatically without user interaction.

I've already added to the theme but it will take a while before it gets activated. Should pop up within a few hours.

Re: How do I become a superuser?

Welcome to the Linux Mint forums. For commands like that, you prefix them with sudo. For programs you use gksudo. So for this command it is: sudo dpkg --configure -a This will prompt you for your password to authorize the action. Note that the terminal doesn't give you any visual feedback as you typ...

But one thing is the contrary to good visibility, I mean this: So one nice thing is if you quote a post it now includes the date that post was made and a link to jump back to the original post This link "icon" (I can absolutely not identify it, what it shall show) is so tiny, that it took me a comp...

Change the password on your own account. Create a new regular account for that other person, and have them use that.

Doesn't NoScript also have options to block certain things always regardless of whether JavaScript is allowed on the page? I seem to recall that.

We'll let it rest :wink:

There's no problem with the website. You need to be logged in to be able to post ideas or hardware reviews. You do those things through the My Places menu.

Re: Forum has been upgraded (report issues here)

If I do the same thing, it doesn't do that for me. It's a quote with timestamp each time. I can't think of a reason why it would be different for you other than some browser addon interfering with JavaScript. - When you first click the quote button to reply with quote, the server creates the quote a...

Re: Root Password Danger ?

The user created during installation of Linux Mint has the administrator role. That means they are allowed to run system administration programs and commands, and authenticate with their own password. Additional users you'd create on your system, for example for your kids or guests, you would natura...

Re: Forum has been upgraded (report issues here)

I can see it happened but I can't reproduce it. Doing reply with quote and then selecting some text of another (or two) other posts and clicking quote to include that text does do the timestamp as well.

Earlier today we did a major forum upgrade. Hey xenopeek , how about this? Just shrink it to fit. Leave the swatches deliberately in color so it makes it obvious. Feel free to otherwise mod it as necessary or desired. https://image.ibb.co/d8Eifn/Pallet_Icon.png I created it, and I fully authorize i...

Check again. And yes, I'm working on moving the board away from mixed content warnings and overshot a bit. Taking another approach to only affect images.
