Problems with vanilla 2 and wanting to downgrade to vanilla 1?

UnderDogUnderDog MVP
edited April 2011 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8
From another thread:
Would be great if could export from Vanilla2.x to Vanilla1.x (downgrade) because I'm not happy with vanilla2, is still a litle beta and there are many functions that were great in vanilla1, and will not implemented yet in 2.0.17
@Carlitros : what are the problems, try to be as clear as possible and maybe we can solve the problems. If you have discussions running, just post the URLs here.

Example:
I clicked here, filled this form, checked that checkbox and then this error occurred (screenshot). I posted the question here (Url to discussion).

    Hello UnderDog,

    I have a forum with about 300 users and 400 threads, it runned on vanilla1 for 4 years and today on vanilla2, some thread have 10 pages and more than 450 comments in a unique thread, first problem not is possible go to "more recent" or "new" post and navigation trough old pages is required.
    Also will be good hide comments for "clean" some post, but dont deleting it (recoverable). After upgrade to 2.0 several hided post is showed, and not possible to hide, problem increased, more long threads.
    CLEeditor hangs ie8, i dont love ie8, but sadly is the most used.
    Search need filters, the good example is this comunity forum, its impossible locate messages when you search and the results show hundred of messages of 2005 and vanilla1.
    Surely my users have more problems or desired functions, but in this moment i dont remember, also surely this related problems can be solved with time, but its hard to convince to 300 users that dont have functions that work fine yesterday.
    Thanks for your interest.

    It automatically goes to the first post you haven't read. It simply doesn't know you've read it yet because it's a new install.

    Ok so you have a couple of problems:
    1) some thread have 10 pages and more than 450 comments in a unique thread, first problem not is possible go to "more recent" or "new" post and navigation trough old pages is required.
    See Lincoln's answer. A good example is clicking on the "Vanilla 2.0.17 Released" thread in the "All discussions" list on this forum. It will jump to the last comment you've read. In my case it's:
    http://www.vanillaforums.org/discussion/14397/vanilla-2.0.17-released#Item_105
    2) Also will be good hide comments for "clean" some post, but dont deleting it (recoverable). After upgrade to 2.0 several hided post is showed, and not possible to hide, problem increased, more long threads.
    Do you know which posts they are? You might have to adjust the database and then adjust a piece of code within vanilla for this one.
    CLEeditor hangs ie8, i dont love ie8, but sadly is the most used.
    I don't know how to solve this one.
    Search need filters, the good example is this comunity forum, its impossible locate messages when you search and the results show hundred of messages of 2005 and vanilla1.
    I thought search is being worked on for the next version of Vanilla.
    Surely my users have more problems or desired functions, but in this moment i dont remember, also surely this related problems can be solved with time, but its hard to convince to 300 users that dont have functions that work fine yesterday.
    Completely understandable.

    I think that if you can resolve the "long threads" problem by having your users skip to the past post, you'll be halfway in your solution. You will also then eliminate the "hide some posts" problem, because you can let your users jump to the last post.

    I've thought of 1 other solution for letting your users jump to the last post.
    My HTML is a bit rusty, so bare with me:
    you need to change something in your sourcecode where you know for sure it will be the last post shown. (in the sourcecode you will see easily).
    After the last post you will add something:
    <a name="thisisthelastpost"></a>
    And in your discussion list you let the users jump to the last post by doing this:
    <a href="somediscussion#thisisthelastpost"></a>

    Thanks Lincoln an UnderDog , In parts, first about the problem of unread post and jump to the last readed. I did not know this feature because in my forum it is not working!, the url not write the #Item_xxx line, if i write this line to hand in url the jump not is performed, I discovered that if i disable Voting plugin it work perfectly.
    Any knows of this issue?

    I didn't know. It's probably a bug and needs a separate thread (maybe there already is a separate thread)
    Strange because I thought they were using the voting plugin here on the forums too...

    I believe that's a know bug with the Voting plugin, sorry 'bout that. Could be we're running a bleeding-edge copy of the Voting plugin here, not sure. @Tim?
