  1. @J Bar - Hey Jim, thanks for reporting. For my peace of mind, please can you test it on another message? I just want to rule out any potential problems - feel free to make any messages in here to test with. There's been no change of setting, but I did make a silent board upgrade the other night and I'm just wondering if it's affected it.
  2. 100% - the efforts to keep the archive updated year on year are phenomenal, so a huge thank you to all those who summarise and cap, and to @Sayaka for all the archiving efforts. Thanks also to those summarisers who knocked off the early years at the start of lockdown - we are far closer to completion than ever before. 🙌 🥳
  3. Marvellous, I'm pleased to hear that - and thank you again for the suggestions.
  4. Hey Jim @J Bar - thanks for the suggestions. I've implemented a few of these things - notably, I've added silent editing to your accounts and also the ability to hide your own content. See how you go, and we'll look back in a few weeks and see if it's working or whether I need to do some adjusting with the member groups. I'd be interested to know how people find the changes.
  5. @J Bar Hey Jim, I've been having a puzzle over this - it's definitely an unfortunate side effect of the move of the feature. I understand the logic of why it's been moved, and due to how the post controls are linked into it (it's also where the moderator privileges sit), it's impossible to extricate. ...but would it help if I gave members permissions to hide your own content? Then at least you could 'get rid' of the mistake so the rest of the board can't see it, and the Staff can sweep the posts away when they log on?
  6. @Starmaker73 - can you do the same, and clear the cache and cookies for the site on your phone browser? That should put it back into line. @boatmate - great, glad that worked for you! No, there's not currently the option to mute a member.
  7. That's awesome to hear, thanks @J Bar 😁 @boatmate - that sounds a bit odd. Can you check your settings under this link, please? https://www.neighboursfans.com/forum/settings/links/ I have mine set to 'take me to comments I haven't read' - can you check that yours are set to something suitable? If there's no joy, it might be worth clearing the cache and cookie for the site in your browser to see if that puts things back into line.
  8. That's brilliant to hear; glad you like it.
  9. I'm really pleased that I could get a resolution for you. Thanks heaps for your patience whilst I had a look at it.
  10. Made a few other tweaks as well to the templates; I think it's looking better on desktop now too.
  11. It turns out I just needed to have a bit of a rest after work and the clouds parted in the code. I was definitely overtired earlier in the week!
  12. How's that now? @boatmate @ekane @J Bar
  13. Hi @ekane - yeah, the smallest view (which is what you'll generally see if you're on mobile) doesn't show any date/time details on the posts. I realise this is irritating - it's definitely on the to-do list.
  14. That's good to hear. No, unfortunately not - that was what I was unsuccessfully hunting down for you last night (that, and moving the avatar). That smallest view is definitely the least friendly, I agree - I'll keep an eye out.
  15. I've split a set of posts from Neighbours Chat into this topic. @lozthyneighbours @emzynr @SydneyNeighboursFan @FootyKick - in future, please can you put feedback about the forum in this dedicated thread? When it is posted in random topics across the forum, it is difficult to ensure that we've picked up all of the feedback - and it would be frustrating for you to feel that you've lodged a complaint without it being addressed. As stated in this topic last night, it's not possible to address everything - but if I can make a minor change to improve things, then I am happy to do so. If
  16. No, it's fine. My problem is that my instinct is always to try to fix things for people - and I'll be honest, I did have a look earlier to see if it was something I could quickly fix on the fly. Alas, the way the board is structured these days, it's really not simple to modify; if it had been, I'd have done it there and then.
  17. Cheers for understanding - I will keep my eye out for improvements.
  18. Thank you for your feedback. I'm sorry to read that you are not a fan of the change. I have said further up the thread that I will keep an eye on the developments from Invision, and if there is something more suitable for us to upgrade to in the future, I will do so. The design choices are not ours - they are Invision's, who have determined what they believe to be the optimal design for each layout. The smaller your screen size, the less information is available visually. Depending on the size of your device, rotating it so it is landscape may cause a different view to load (it do
  19. I've made an edit to your account - please could you look over the setting now and see if you can see the option? @daydreambeliever
  20. Notifications are often a perilous area with upgrades, especially as settings are swapped around and deprecated; I chose what I felt were the safest options, but it's never as simple as one size fits all. I'm sorry this has affected your account. The good news is that it's trivial to make the change within your account. Go to: https://www.neighboursfans.com/forum/notifications/options/ In that screen, you can turn off various notification types individually - or, at the bottom right, there's a link to 'Stop all email notifications'.
  21. Ahhh, I should've mentioned this - bbcode has been deprecated. Essentially, that's any code which uses the square brackets - e.g. [b] [I] etc. That's always been the staple of forum software since the Millennium, but the WYSIWYG Richtext editor is much more powerful these days, so the decision was made to quietly deprecate it. The only irritation with the Spoiler tag is that there's no shortcut to it (whereas bold, italic etc all use the standard keyboard shortcuts). And yes, @Benji the functionality has been in for a few versions now - so a couple of years. There was a scre
  22. Yeah, it's definitely a bit of a change. I think it looks better on some mobile resolutions than others. I'll keep an eye on what's out there for changes moving forward.
  23. Unfortunately support for IE is being dropped from most (non-Microsoft) major suppliers. I understand the decision was made by the creators of Invision because a great number of web standards are not supported by IE, which makes it very difficult to code for - you end up with an ancient looking site because developments and features from the past 15+ years are just not supported. I realise that it's very difficult if IE is forced upon you by corporate ICT infrastructure (if it's a work device), although even Microsoft is dropping IE support over the next 12 months, as they've moved
  24. Thanks for the screenshot - here's how they should display: As @wizardt™ has explained, this is not a failing of the board software, but it is due to your PC running an outdated version of Windows. I appreciate it's difficult if it's a work PC, but if it's a home PC, you should be able to upgrade to Windows 10 for free with your Windows 7 licence key - but obviously, I'll leave that decision with you.
  25. The topic changed so suddenly then, I fear I have whiplash. Is the emoji issue resolved?
