Cool, thanks for the feedback. That was definitely one of the intentions of the upgrade- to make the forum more mobile friendly.

Hi, Dan,

glad it alls seems to have worked out well. But I miss the "Show new posts since your last visit" function?

EDIT: Found it! It might be a problem for some others, so I am proud to tell that's the two buttons on the left of "HELLO (USER NAME)  ;D

On this theme, it's hiding, and I need to fix that. It's the first button that is at the top next to your name. If you hover over it, it will say "Show unread posts since last visit".

Hi, thanks,

and another one which I am not sure I had disvovered before the upgrade: When choosing a board and a special thread, I will directed to the FIRST page, not to the LAST... I think usually I used to jump to the last site to see the newest post? Not sure if it has to do with my personal settings or is it a general forum thing?

Small problem, but all the rest is PERFECT it seems!  8)

What do you mean by a special thread? Do you mean a thread with new replies? I think the difference here is that you have to click on the orange "NEW" icon to go to the first new unread post in that thread. If you just click on the thread title, it takes you to the first page of the thread. I'm not sure if that answers the question or not. (Probably not.)

Sorry, "special" was used without thinking. It was not useful. BUT:

If I clicked on the thread title, didn't it take me to the LAST page of the thread normally?   ???  And didn't we have this problem some weeks/months ago?

Hi Dan, thanks for the upgrade! No problem until  now, and it really looks "contemporary". Maybe you should save (if there is still chance) and post some screen shots of the old style for reference and memories.  Thanks LE for the question about the buttons, it troubled me too.
Come on, it is not funny anymore.

Haha looks great Dan!

And yes, the first links I was looking for was the "unread posts since last visit" thanks for helping out.

LE: If you clicked "new" behind a thread then it will take you to the last unread post. Never saw a forum where, by clicking the title, it took you automatically to the last page.

Dan, maybe I don't remember correctly, but wasn't there a favicon? No sign of it now.  It looks quite peculiar to see an empty white sheet. If there wasn't one, can you do something?

Hi Dan, Firstly, many thanks for all your hard work upgrading this site!   :)

Mine is more of a puzzle than something missing.   When I logged in this morning, my username appeared in uppercase letters, although I was typing in lowercase and I tried many times, but I wasn't allowed in.   Then, it eventually appeared in lowercase and let me in and now it is back to uppercase and WILL let me in.  I know it is not a problem with my keyboard.   Thanks!

EDIT:   It only happens in the box above the banner.

Looks fantastic!  I thought at first I had to click on every section individually to check if I had any unread posts but I should have know better!  A simple click on the box at the top left and my life is complete again.  Well, almost! ;D

The "Show new replies to your posts" and "Show unread messages" buttons are too up and too small.

These two buttons are what I use the most in the forum, are the best tool to follow everything so if its possible to move them to the place they were before or make it bigger or both...
You might get lucky, now and then
