I had to use the forum again over the last weeks and it quickly became apparent that nobody uses the (continuously resetting) Sort By Last Updated setting. The result is that all my replies to older threads got completely ignored. The only solution was to start new threads, which then lack all the old context. I wonder if this is really how you envision the forum should be used?
Tagging previous participants doesn't work either.
Viewing the list only shows how many replies there are, but not when or by whom the last reply was made. This means that to check if there maybe is an update I should remember myself how many replies there were the last time I looked. Does anybody really think that everyone can remember those number for all threads?
Is it really so difficult to get this fixed? And if the answer is yes, why don't you revert to the old forum engine that had this all properly covered? Why is Silabs so hard trying to p*ss us off?
I want to build a project for getting the distance between nodes in a mesh network
Explanation:In kids play ground I want to know where is each of the kids proximity to the others,and to get the result on the screen as a map.
Can you point what is the best way to do this project?
Is there a way for us to see all of our post history, and ideally search within this post history. These posts usually include the topics most relevant to us that we will often want to refer back to.
In (Community > Profile > Activities) we can only see our last 10 "actions".
Here we just, after correcting some errors could not be done without major kludges, decided a large code (20.000 lines+), partially generated by some "code generator", was unmaintainable. We threw it out and started writing maintainable code . We estimate that will take less time than working with the unmaintainable crap to fix it, also has the advantage that "next time" will be working with maintainable code
inspiring, is it not?
When pasting a copied image into the message editor, sometimes the image preview is completely different than what was pasted, and can even be images from threads of other users. Upon posting the message, the images usually appear as what was pasted rather than what was shown as a preview, so this seems to only be a bug with image preview. More details of this issue are described in this thread.
I also noticed another bug where the previews are correct for multiple pasted images, but then upon posting, the order of the images changes.
These image posting issues may be related to the "Cannot attach JPG file again" issue reported by @YK
I'd like to make sure I'm not duplicating issue reports, and a search bar for this forum would make that easier.
The other community forums have a search bar
But the General Interest forum does not have a search bar.
Is there a list of supported hotkeys for message editing?
For example, these standard hotkeys work:
ctrl-b for bold
ctrl-i for italics
ctrl-u for underline
But I was hoping there would be a hotkey for converting highlighted text to a link. Ctrl-k usually works for this in other editors.
A list of the other markup commands would also be helpful, such as backticks `` for code or highlighting. I'm also not sure what's necessary to get @user to work, and what to do for names that include a space.
I'm trying to enable email notifications, and the settings appear to persist through a login and logout, but I never get email notifications on my threads, and when I check my notification settings after a few days, they appear to reset to email notifications disabled.
I tried this on both firefox and chrome, and also tried toggling "same as web" (which has all notifications enabled), and also individually selecting "yes" for all settings.
I have changed the e-mail address of Silicon Labs account nearly half an hour ago. But I am still able to log in with my older e-mail address. I can see the my new e-mail in my profile. Need much more time to update the login system with my new e-mail address?
Just now I wanted to search the forum for a question of mine over the past few weeks. So I entered 'PCBC' in the search field and to my surprise there were No Results.
Then I asked google to find 'silabs community pcbc' and what do you know? My entry is exactly in the forum I was searching.
I continue to wonder what benefit there is from the new forum engine. Is there anything anywhere that is actually an improvement over the previous one?
Since last week, I get notifications on ANY activity on the forum, which is quite annoying as it makes very difficult to follow my open questions.
