    Why aren't we able to have the threads sorted by date, descending within each post so that the new ones are on top?

    That is the default display method, isn't it? There are some sticky posts which always appear before threads with the newest posts, but the newest ones are always next, in descending order for me. :/

    EDIT: or do you want to sort the posts WITHIN each thread? Hmm, seems not much need for that either, since the forum software automatically takes you to the latest post with the "#latest" addition to the url.

    I am looking for my old posts, to refresh my memory after I have been away so long. As I recall, the old forum gave useful search results. Searching for "geekmaster" now finds a ton of posts that say "geekmaster wrote:" and nothing else. I have to actually CLICK them (and then back again) just to decide whether they were worth clicking. I would rather search the list for posts I want to click. Can't we get a better search summary than just "geekmaster wrote:"? Please? I want to become active here again, but this site layout (and harsh visual contrast) his burning my eyes (even in the daytime) and preventing me from navigating efficiently. What am I missing?

    Sorry, welcome back! :) I know what you mean re search results, I'm having similar troubles using the search function today; I want to find any posts relating to resizing the mirrored monitor window, but entering "resize", "mirror" and "window" in the search box is not giving any useful results. :|

    Can you move a post once it has been posted? Or is there a pre mod policy for newbies?

    Non-mods cannot move posts, only mods have those permissions. I'm sure if you pm one of the Volunteer Moderators they could move a post for you.

    Hi @gluebag, mods can delete posts from a thread if requested, move threads to different areas or merge duplicate threads plus a couple other things

    @geekmaster when you are on the search page, click the down arrow for more options. You can search for just a particular user (among other things).

    @cybereality: What search PAGE? I only see a search BOX in the upper right corner. And I just used that search box to search for "search page" and it found nothing like what you showed above. And besides, my comment was about search RESULTS. Where can I selelct how many lines of each result to display in that list? The first line is relatively useless, considering how many posts I have made here, ESPECIALLY when that is all it finds when I select an author. This new site layout not only hurts my eyes (literally too stark contrast, and probably horrible "god-rays" in a CV1 as a result) but it is confusing -- stuff I relied on is missing, and so many broken links to previously local content pollute my posts. It really bothers me enough to push me away. Has nobody else dared to say such things before? I am lost in this place now that I am interested again (lost me with no DK2, but back with my CV1). But really, I cannot find REAL useful content, buried until all the swag-seeker posts. Yeah, I know, unintended consequences, as a once great forum becomes candy crush saga... Perhaps I will figure out some trick to help me navigate the wilderness of overgrowth on my once familar playground that was the Oculus Rift forum, or maybe not... Where do I start again?

    The search page is here.
    https://forums.oculus.com/community/search

    There is a developer section of the forum. Click the drop-down menu on the right side that says "Community". The down arrow will let you switch to "Developers". 

    Lots of people complained about the new forum, just like they complain about everything else. Most people learned to like it. It's much better now, it just takes a second to get used to it.

    Like the new Win10 everybody is going to get later this summer. I get betas pushed daily to my machine, but suddenly it was an all new start menu. My first throught was "Woah, where is everything?" but a half minute later is was "Ya know, I like this better!". I hope that is the same here, but I am still in the bewilderment phase.This place ain't what I leaned in my bones when I made all those posts, ya know?

    The hard part of the new Win10 is figuring out workarounds for the built-in ubuntu bash shell. No kernel, so ya just gotta work around it. I did get around the "no binfmt kernel module" (I like running mixed architectures in my machine), but it (and other things) need some clever hackery (and BTW, I am launching a kernel there now too). Y'all are gonna love the new Win10. Something in it for everyone (including some linux folks). Hope the Rift CV1 works on it, but certainly, it must...

    Now I just need to figure out workarounds for all the stuff I relied on that ain't where it used to be, here in this forum.

    Try uninstalling the Oculus and Gear VR services and then dock your phone again.

    You have to go into settings in Home and toggle the setting about allowing third party apps (aka., "unknown sources," or something like that).

    We made an update to the text on the forum, which should result in a clearer image and also reduced the font size of the messages to be more normal. Hope everyone appreciates the change.

    Is there a way for a forum member that makes a post, to move it to another category.
    We just noticed our post in Games and Apps should have gone in showcase..since its WIP not released.

    I cant work out how to do that ?

    Thanks

    @driftVFX only mods can move threads. You can PM me to do that. Thanks.
