Some ways to reverse new features

1) Disabling infinite scroll:
  • Go to My FlyerTalk Control Panel
    • Edit options
      • Disable Infinite Scroll


2) Restore previous post editing options:
  • Go to My FlyerTalk Control Panel
    • Settings and Options
      • Miscellaneous Options
        • Message Editor Interface and select Standard Editor -- extra formatting controls (you may see odd behavior in this unsupported editor)

NOTE: For ease of both members posting and Technical Support, this thread has been split into two threads for 2018; one exclusively for MOBILE devices, the other for DESKTOP devices. You can find them here:

How many of the 600,000+ FTers do you think know about CSS, much less how to disable scripts etc, just to get an IBB to function properly. The onus should be on the IBB to provide a smooth, functional BB that will enhance/complement the content - not create an 'enhanced' version that is a piece of pooey that's causing people to post less , consider looking at other BBs or just subscribing to the various bloggers & leaving FT behind.

A good question, Sharon. I don't know what CSS means, but I do recognize pooey.

- The ads jumping into the middle of text when you resize the page on a mobile device (yes, I am using the desktop site on a mobile device, again, DON'T TELL ME WHAT TO DO) are a nice touch. I do so love having an ad jump into the middle of text I am reading. Oh, FlyerTalk, about me turning ads off on desktop, how about THERE WILL BE ICE RINKS IN THE NINTH CIRCLE OF HELL BEFORE I DO THAT GIVEN ALL THE "YOU HAVE WON A THOUSAND DOLLAR WALMART GIFT CARD" BROWSER HIJACKS YOU HAVE. YOUR ADVERTISER QUALITY BLOWS GOATS BECAUSE YOU ARE ALLOWING ADVERTISERS WHO HIJACK BROWSERS. PICK BETTER ADVERTISERS.

Ahem. Yeah, I'm shouty about this.
Two questions: Do you still have Infinite Scroll enabled? Does it jump you back to a video ad?

Edit: I may not understand the problem. Seems good.
Have you tried up to 10? Where the right-most digit is 0. At least that's what I think the poster was saying.

I share all OP's comments. New update frustrates me in too many ways to list here! Clean it up please. Make sure it is ready for prime time before you throw it out there for us to help debug!
Is the jumping on mobile or desktop? Infinite Scroll or regular? You're editing in the Quick Reply or highlighting a post? I'm confused by "I can highlight and edit text, I have to delete and re-write."

Are you in the Mobile Skin and Infinite Scroll or the regular desktop skin?

I will ask to get this link reinstated!

My apologies, we were out of the office over the weekend. Have you cleared your cache for FT? I'm unable to replicate this issue, but am still trying.

Wikis have a different format, but I haven't run across any not showing up. Could you link me to the one(s) giving you trouble?

Reported!

Reinstatement of this link, as well as little yellow "My Flyertalk" icon, top and bottom of page, would be much appreciated!

I haven't noticed this before, but when editing a post and clicking the IMG button, there is new behavior and it doesn't work. Is it supposed to work?

At least with the basic editor I can still use the [IMG] command.

The alignment of these columns is wonderful. Is this a bug or a design feature? (Windows 7, Chrome 61)
