• Most people probably don't realise this, but this forum has had two editors for a number of years. One is the xenForo default editor, and the other is a custom editor I made years back I called BBCEd.

    All the settings for which editor you use was lost during the upgrade. You can find the setting under Account Settings > Preferences > Editor.

Gmail Notifier is epic, dudes.

So you subscribe to a thread and Gmail notifies you when someone posts on that thread? How are you notified?

a little popup in the bottom right corner of my screen, right above my system tray (that part on the far right of the taskbar).
it applies to all mail i get, but the most common thing to land in my inbox is new post notifications :)

I just visit forums a few times a day (F5 every two minutes) so this wouldn't do much for me.

I know I love it too. I just wish, (and I'm on a mac) that it wouldn't open 2 tabs, but also I've been wishing for it to have a feature similar to the mail app, kind of like a drawer for your mail, without the browser.
