    Hi all - as you can see, we've updated the forum and made a whole ton of changes. If anything's broken, missing or not working like you think it should, please post here and I'll do my best to get it sorted for you!

    Thanks :headphone:

    Thanks for that Giverny.

    Is there a bit of a summary of the things updated (aside from the obvious look and feel), and any known issues, so that we're not inundating you?

    The quick navigation button looks useful, so why not tell people about it?

    There's little point hiding your light under a bushel - even if some of the changes came with the new platform? ;)

  3. @Giverny I cannot find the search bar when I am not signed in. I am often too lazy to sign in. Will this be a permanent thing or will it be reinstated? Thanks.

    Just like Sainsbury's - as soon as you get used to where stuff is, it's all moved around.

    I can afford Waitrose - not that I'm bragging or anything.

    What's the difference between 'New Posts' and 'Recent Posts' - the view seems exactly the same to me.

    Used to think that 'unanswered' threads was really useful, why has that gone?

    OK - so I've unleashed my inner UAT Tester.

    When I go to my own page, and preferences, if I uncheck "collapse signature" and "collapse "user information.....", then Save Changes, I return a message saying my changes have been saved, but the checks reappear in the boxes and no changes occur.

    First time I did this, my screen also reverted to the Red colourway, but subsequent iterations, the Mild variant "stuck".

    Obviously these aren't user critical, but you did ask.......

    I'd best get on with the piece of work I'm trying to complete today, or I'll have to invoice you, rather than my client. ;)

    @Giverny . I really like the new icons underneath the text boxes where there is such a range of responses you can use. I think these are really useful, especially the informative one. I also love having my legend back. Thank you. :)

    Hopefully with the new icons list people will stop "chatting" on inappropriate threads in response to others' posts :) (and use the emoticons instead) I know, I'm old and grouchy!

    Also, no hug or wave icon ( emotion) which was asked for way back and still not here, this is my sad and disappointed emotion. :-( And a hug is very much needed for someone who is going through a difficult time and all so a wave to say hi/hello ..................................

    Noticed the green dot to show a members on-line status has disappeared, is this going to be reintroduced?
