Sidebar "Start a new thread" button in Safari?

  • Not a big deal now I've found this forum seems to work better in Chrome, but when viewed in Safari, there is no right hand sidebar and so no "Start a new thread" button available. Using Safari 12.0 on a Macbook Air.
  • Thanks @Ian_H . I don't have a Mac, but the online testing I have run with Safari 11 does not show this issue (I don't have Safari 12 available). Can you please confirm for me your screen resolution?
  • I'm on an 11 inch MacBook Air from 2013, screen is 11.6-inch (1366 x 768). Using Safari Version 12.0.1 (13606. Not a big issue for me now I know to fire up Chrome if I want to post a new thread. Ian
  • For what it is worth, I'm using Safari Version 12.0 (14606., and can see the 'Start a new thread' button as long as I am not viewing the ''Latest in Forums' page. The button is always missing when viewing that page (both safari and chrome), but it is present if I am viewing a thread, or if I navigate to a particular forum. Cheers, Moh. edit. for caparison, my display is 15.4-inch (2880 x 1800)

  • Kia ora @Moh_Oz , the button is missing on that page because you're not in a forum. You need to choose a forum first for the button to appear. Is that confusing? Maybe it is!
  • Hi @Matthew Make sense when you think about it. Cheers, Moh

  • Key: Filename of box.
  • On Request? "On request" boxes are not always used in a view.
  • Generated? "On request" boxes are only generated as needed; others are always generated (unless retrieved from the cache).
  • Title: Box title. Set in view definition but may be overridden.
  • File: The file that is used to generate the box content. This value is determined on application start by a file scan. If blank, the content is usually generated by the controller -- or the file is missing.
  • Template: which box template file to use (useful for major changes). Looks for /custom/template/box/[template].cfm first and /whio/template/box/[template].cfm second.
  • Class: what CSS class to apply to the box (useful for aesthetic tweaks).
  • Cache (min): cached item must be fresher than this.
  • Cache key: how the cache record is identified. {Placeholders} may be used.
  • From cache? Was the content of this box drawn from the cache?
