Default Upgrades & Improvements

I have just upgraded the board to the latest version. This means all sorts of cool new things can happen - like double clicking orange forum icons to mark them as read, and quoting more than one post in a post (see the nasty new blue icon) - but also that some of the little Palimpmods have disappeared. I'll spend some time over the next week or two putting them back, so please don't fret!

The full list of new things - lots of which are around security - can be found here.

The front page is now kaput, for some reason, so I will put a forward in to force people to jump straight to the forum.

Any issues or concerns, let me know here please chaps.

Woo-hoo! Forums now stay marked as read when you have read all the posts inside them. At last!

Love the double-click thing already! Can we notice niggly things for you, Wavid, or have you a list already? The lack of linking tags at the bottom of a thread page, back to the main forum etc, is the first thing I noticed anyway.

But three cheers for the upgrade!

That one was on my list certainly, along with links in the navigation bar and at the page footer. The 'Current Read' doesn't appear at the moment under your avatar, and the rank (suckles...) and title (Administrator) are the wrong way round. I'm sure there are others!

People feel free to point things out!

Also, there is now a link inside quotes to jump to the original post that was quoted. That has a little icon (no doubt blue and nasty) which currently isn't displaying. I can sort that out tonight.

Just deleted a grumble about the multi-quote feature, cos it was my cack-handedness, not the board causing the prob. But there does seem to be a genuine hitch with 'New Posts'. Having replied to the How Many Books thread, I notice this doesn't show up in the New Posts listings ... is there a time delay for such things, or is this a glitch?

I seem to remember that New Posts was crap last time round and I had to change it to something else to get it to work properly. I think it might just show up unread posts since you last logged-in, HP. What was more useful was 'today's posts' which showed everything that day regardless of whether it was read or not. Another to add to the list!

Could someone send me the URL of the Superglu link that used to be top right on the now defunct home page please? I used that a lot but (as luck would have it) not in the last few days and it has expired from my history. Thanks.

Thanks. I had been putting an e in supr. That's why I couldn't find it on Google.
