    If you come across any bugs or something that you think could work better, reply to this sticky and we can look into it.

    Whether it's layout, a function we're missing, you're not able to to do something or whatever, just mention it here and we can investigate further.

    As it's still early days don't be too hard :) Most criticism welcome though

    We'd love you to start talking about Stoves and torches. If you can use the everything else forum for the torches and the kitchen for the stove for now that would be great while we look at the structure of the forums, we can always move threads about later into newly created forums etc.
    Thanks;)

    We need to install tapatalk which will be coming in the near future, although not the immediate future :D

    recent posts and new posts are not up to date or in sequence for me. Using various links gets different results.

    Hi - is there any difference between the new posts and latest posts links?
    Thanks
    Edit - sorry didnt notice Moles previous post

    hah. the bookmarks I made of 'recent posts' on phone and laptop were not updating in sequence (or at all). I deleted them and redid them and now seem ok.
    El (hi) It looks like new posts doesn't include threads that one has read, but recent posts does.

    edit

    actually it's not ok. It appears that any bookmark I make of the 'recent posts' page only seems to bookmark the page as it is at the time. When I reopen it, it doesn't update. Never had this happen on a forum before.:confused:

    and, if I press the new posts link on this page it takes me to a thread last used yesterday.

    There isn't a recent posts link on every page?

    thanks El - that has sorted it for me. Bit clunky though.

    yeah i agree - it impairs 'bookmark this page' quite a bit. Quite impressed with the functionality though, works well on the phone too.

    I think there should be a 'recent posts' link on the blue bar along the top next to the 'new posts' link - to get to recent posts i have to access the new posts page first to get to the link

    YesI agree - 'Recent Posts' is the usually the way I access forums I regularly use

    But generally - good functionality - impressive editability:)

    Shewie - am I missing something or is there no link to 'go to last post' for each thread? edit - found it! - the link is also the time of last post...

    Sorry chaps I've been darn sarf for a 40th, just got back now.

    Have you managed to get things sorted?

    Hi Shewie
    I sorted a bookmark as El described , but like El, if possible would prefer a 'Recent Posts' on the blue top bar ...

    But "New Posts" shows you posts you haven't seen yet, "Recent Posts" would show you posts you have already seen.

    If it's not in "New Posts" then it's a page you've already visited, I think

    Can we still have a recent posts link on the blue bar... :D... please?... ;)

    I'll add it to the list :)

    Okay I think I've got my head round this now, I've found the code I need to drop into the software to give us a nice Recent Posts button on the nav bar.

    I'll have a play later rather than breaking it now :rolleyes:

    Aw, do it now ... we won't take the mick (too much) if (when ;) ) you mess it up :D

    Plus I'm just off out and the later you mention might be when I'm back and needing to recuperate :oops:


    EDIT: Right ... this went squiffy and the difference in font size was caused by the spell checker fixing the word recuperate ... took long enough for the error to return ...

    How's the Recent Posts tab working for everyone?

    Seems okay to me and I haven't broken the site, that's got to be a bonus :)

    I think it's going to make the site more user friendly, thanks for the suggestion chaps :)

    Good move on the inclusion of the new button :)



    And the spell check font size weirdness strikes again ... :confused:

    That's the next one on my list, I had a look last night but couldn't figure it out

    It's hiding somewhere
