Hi everyone.
Please use this thread to post details of any problems you encounter on the new forum version.
I will be experimenting with the look and feel today (Sun) to improve the very naked appearance.

Hi Dan
You used to be able to preview the original post and the last reply by hovering your pointer over either the topic title or the 'last reply' notification. This no longer works.

How do we now post pictures please?

Thanks, Simon. and for your pic in the FB thread.
I think we need the editor plugin - the one we had where you can format your post before submitting.
Will get cracking on that first.

Simon, you seem to have the list of topics with new posts displayed permanently. For me it is only in the drop down list. I don't know yet how one configures that feature. Ideally I think it should be just in the drop down for neatness.

Is it possible to have the "new and updates topics£ and the "Select forum " bars at the bottom of the posts as well as the top where they are now. It just saves one more action if you don't have to click to go to the top. No big deal if it is a big hassle, just a suggestion.

Yes, Martin, I believe that is possible by a simple configuration option. will check it out.

Now we have the text editor back!

Simon - can you test this again now please? It seems to be working since I disabled the interfering blog plugin.

Oh, and how about putting the Intro thread in a section of its own at the top, rather than (confusingly) in the Food & Drink section?

Well done for putting the toolbar thingy back (she says, smarming her way back in big_laugh)
