Im sure you guys are aware, but I dont see anyone else posting about this yet.

So...

But any topic that is locked can not be unlocked now.  Or am I missing a new feature somewhere, I clicked around a bit and it seems the new Topic Admin link would be theplace to do this now, but...

The new "topic admin" link is not working (at least for me) I also noticed avatars showing 1/4 the way down a topic now, rather than the top.

Thanks

I just tested this on my page and it works normally.

Run cursor of Topic Admin, click [Locked] Unlock , uncheck Lock, Save.

Not sure why your drop down isn't working for you.

As for the Avatar showing mid post now, I think I preferred it at the top. Hopefully they will make a Display Option setting for Admins or revert it back to the top.

If you're using custom css you can override the change:

td.MessageAuthorInfoCell1
{
vertical-align: top;
}

Im sure they dont plan on keeping it half way down the page. Needs to be at the top of post.

Unlock option works just fine for me.  Make sure you hover over the Topic Admin link, don't click it.  Clicking the Topic Admin link itself just reloads the page.  A new hover over menu should be shown with an unlock option to click.

we'll I figured out the issue

I had the wowhead tooltip code in (and love it btw) but I had to disable that for the lock / unlock feature to work again.

Hopefully GP can change that so wowhead tooltips work again....

but anyone who has the wowhead code will notice the issue. good luck

I don’t have wowhead code, but I do noticed that for very old threads that have been locked, can not be unlocked.
