Hi, There's been quite a major upgrade to the board today. As well as some cosmetic changes, you will notice some new features - for example, some popular threads now have a summary of topic

Thanks @Hawker, all looks great to me! One thing I almost asked about (but then found) is that the option to edit posts is now on the top right of the post as one of the options in the 'three dot

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

Not sure if this is my fault?

 Since the update I can read a thread (example: I’m on post 10 or 10) then later I go back to the thread and find I’m at a different place in the thread (say post 4 of 10).

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.

The ‘mark forum as read’ function doesn’t seem to be working now on my phone (laptop is fine). It was working immediately after the upgrade but not in the last few days. Wonder if it’s my phone that’s the issue. Hmmm!

@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.

There's another small issue that I've been struggling with, Sal @Hawker.

The Edit option was at the bottom of the post next to Quote. It has now moved to a drop down menu in More Options top right (...).

I keep hitting the Quote button and making the changes, then saving it. So I end up with a second post and then I can't delete it. I've noticed a few other people are doing the same thing and we're seeing double posts until a moderator deletes it.

I'm sure we'll eventually get used to it but to save on errors, any chance we can have the Edit feature restored to the bottom of a post?

@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?

@Hawker Hi Sal.

Sorry I didn't see your response here earlier.

I'm a member of another similar site Media Spy. They have the Edit option at the bottom, next to the Quote button, which is why it causes so much confusion for me. I'm starting to get used it on this site now, so while I'm still accidentally clicking on the Quote button when I mean to Edit, at least I'm not accidentally posting them any more.

Yes this could be good. One thing Media Spy does well is that it has a rubbish bin icon so you can delete a post without anyone seeing it. You also have grace period of a few minutes to restore that post, if you accidentally delete something.

The other good feature is that you can Edit your own post without it being revealed immediately at the bottom of your post. You have about three minutes after it has been posted to make any quick changes, so spelling corrections can be made and it isn't shown as an edited post.

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.  :)

Thanks @Hawker - I think the silent editing is a great change. I'm a perfectionist and always go in to edit my posts to correct bits and bobs immediately after I've submitted them (even just to put spaces between emojis or whatever), but the trade-off was that the board would then tell all the world I'm not perfect after all with a timestamp at the bottom. :D

ETA: And now it definitely doesn't!

Just so you know, Staff and Admins can see edits (for obvious reasons) - so don't be rude about us!  :p

(I know you never would!   :D  ).

I love the silent editing feature. I edit most of my posts because there's usually something I want to add or correct as soon as I've posted.

Hi Sal @Hawker.

Just noticed the silent edit has been added, when I made a couple of corrections to my post. It works brilliantly. 

It's a great feature. Thanks heaps.

Cheers, Jim.
