Something like this, that is becoming a common feature across all mediums (blogs/websites/forums/etc)
Name:  Share.jpg
Views: 314
Size:  128.4 KB

P.s. That youtube video snapshot is one that has been uploaded by a bhpian on the Jokes thread. Currently going to the original video to share the same on my FB page. A lot better (for me and the forum) if I could just share the post link itself from this forum.

I'm not sure if what your looking for is a facebook like or +1 on every thread page? If that's the case then it is already there. Just take a look at the top of every thread next to linkback and thread tools.

My bad. Didn't notice this was already available at the thread level.

Thanks!

IIRC, earlier, when we clicked a "Thumbnail" in Team-BHP Garage, we could navigate to the next / previous snap by pressing the right / left key. Though a similar feature is available for the links under "Full Size Image Pages", but not the convinience of navigating using the left / right keys. Has this feature been disabled or is my memory failing me?

I have noticed that too. It was more user friendly before.

It will be nice if the home page free download link for iPhone and Android apps can actually show iPhone/iPad and Android.
Suggestions for Team-BHP from Team-BHPians-teambhp-home.jpg


And a couple of suggestions on the placement of some of the threads:
  1. I feel the thread How do you stick a bell on a wall? (Pics of Quirky Signs) (How do you stick a bell on a wall? Pics of Quirky Signs) is more suited for the Shifting Gears section. This is treated more like a jokes thread.
  2. 3 threads related to Team-bhp mobile skin, iPhone/iPad app, and Android app goes under this section Team-BHP Apps & Mobile Access. Basically this covers the aspects related to the forum interfaces on different media. With that logic, I feel this thread on Suggestions for Team-BHP is probably more suited under this section, rather than Shifting Gears. Because the suggestions mainly are on Team-bhp’s PC/Laptop interface.

I'm unable to upload any image from my phone to site. Is there any problem at the other end?

Lightbulb Re: Suggestions for Team-BHP from Team-BHPians

Why don't we guys get a section that is specially dedicated to the videos uploaded to TB? That might enhance the ergonomics of the forum.

Cheers,

Suggestion: Can we have a quick log-in functionality on the main page. Currently, I type in team-bhp.com, then click on "Forum" to be able to enter my credentials. It may be nice to have the spaces for username / password right on the front page.

Why don't you access Team-BHP.com/forum directly (or add it in your bookmarks menu bar and click it straightaway) and then enter the credentials OR stay logged in?

This surely does reduce the steps and saves time.

I use the bookmark http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/usercp.php for the login prompt and to directly check out my subscribed threads.

Even without the bookmark, when I just type 't' in the browser location bar, the above link is shown as the first prompt. Just press the down arrow and press enter. Place the cursor on username field. Type in the user name (or in my case, double click on the field and it prompts my username from the cache(?)), press tab to move to the password field. Type in the password and press enter to see my 'New Subscribed Threads'.

On my unshared PC, I make use of the 'Remember me' option while logging in so that I can avoid entering the username password every time.

You are right. I could do that. But, my suggestion was based on just general convenience for everyone. Having login points on the homepage will only add greater value.

Can we have a option to make the text Bold Italicised and Underline in the app version? It's really difficult if one tries to do it manually

Sorry about that. Redirect removed.

We did try for this when launching the Classifieds, however there were some underlying issues that made it a difficult switch at the time. We'll revisit this once we give the Classifieds a facelift. Ideally, I'd like to see "4.36 Lakhs" as an even easier-to-read price.

People looking for a specific car/ vehicle can post their choice including colour, location and model/ variant.
Log into the Classifieds. Run a custom search for all the parameters you want. Click "Save this search" and activate "Auto-Notify".

You'll get an email if someone lists an ad which matches your search criteria. This is the closest we can get to a "wanted" section.

Its not that we only have a specific amount of slots available. I think this has been discussed earlier in the thread too. Maybe search for "newbies" etc to find the relevant posts.

Sorry about this. It broke when we changed something on the site, and fixing it is on the to-do list, but not very high up on the list.

Well should it actually be iOS and Android then?

Regarding the thread locations, there's always multiple ways to look at it. For the threads you've mentioned that have been around for a while - its probably better to let sleeping dogs lie and focus on more important things.

More details please. What phone is this? Was it through the browser or the app? Do you still face the problem?

Check this out! Youtube automatically puts together a list of all videos that are shared on Team-BHP

Unfortunately the credentials are not site-wide (/universal), so it wouldn't be correct to have the login box shown on every page.

Noted! Though currently there isn't any development happening on the app.


Thanks,

Thanks Rehaan. I thought the app is slightly modified for iPad compatibility and hence the comment
