Hi Alex. Thats much better!

By simply clicking on "Unread" next to the topic heading, you now jump straight to the first unread post in that topic. No more scrolling down the page, or through pages to find the first new post as is the case with SN. Thanks, that is really helpful

Have also just noticed the 'Newest Posts' sidebar. This is another good feature, particularly for those who occasionally visit other clubs' boards. With SN, you have to use the "Network Navigation" and "Site Navigation" buttons, just to see if there is a new post of interest on a club's site.

Currently, with us being the only significantly active board, most of the newest posts obviously relate to our forum. If other clubs forums become more widely used, the 'Newest Posts' sidebar will very quickly fill up (at the moment, there is only space it appears to show 5 newest posts headers). Would it be possible therefore to have all the newest posts from all boards included in this sidebar with a scroll facility? In that way, every time a new post is made on any board, it appears in the sidebar with, (currently) the 5 most recent showing, but with the facility to scroll down to the 6th, 7th, 8th etc ad infinitum?

The time, according to my radio controlled watch, is 10:01pm on Wednesday, 10 July.

Within the past few minutes I have posted on the Premiership Fixtures thread and, even though only a few minutes have past, that post is timed at: Wed Jul 10, 2019 8:57 pm! :yikes:

What gives?

You'll need to change the daylight saving time in your profile settings

For all the positive features I'm not sure in phpbb if there is an option to do that, I'll have a route around and see what I can find!

@BenHK I've coded some buttons for next and previous topics, they're just next to the reply button

Being picky now. Can those next and previous buttons also be next to the reply button at the bottom of the thread, as well as the one at the top?


Alex. I love your work.

Edit. Another picky point, not sure if everyone will agree, but to my mind the next and previous are the wrong way around. i.e. next takes you to a newer topic (one above in the list) I think it standard to read from top to bottom so next should be one older than current. (that is also the way we are used to it being from SN<spit>

No show stopper, I'm sure I could get used to it, but interested in what others think.

It worked at first but there now appears to be a browser problem. I use Internet Explorer and I could read posts but it locked me out when I tried to contribute. I tried all sorts, forgot password, reactivate, contacting board administrator but I just got 'invalid form'.

I've just tried switching to chrome and everything's OK. I'm even seeing things like the 'unread' button which did not appear on Internet Explorer.

Try clearing your cookies and cache on your original browser and that should solve the issue

Werrrrllllll... that's your problem right there, squire. 😉

Seriously, IE is old and cranky. It was never very good at implementing W3 standards and, since it's no longer maintained by Microsoft, it's fallen further and further behind to the point where I'm surprised any site works correctly with it. It is the sportsnetwork of browsers.

I think JohnJ of HM deserves to be proud of himself - the last known user of IE in the world!

I remember how ineffably proud I was (and how mildly panic stricken when I realised that if I got into trouble there was no-one to whom to turn for technical support) when our IT guys in the London Office told me that I was the last known user in the world of an enquiry program called ASK360 and that The National Museum of Computing at Bletchley Park wanted copies of my code, etc! :dance:

We used a virtual office package at work and they’ve just “upgraded” the server.

Several changes ensued one of which was that it defaults to IE on every login - even though the supplier recommends Chrome.

The fact that they have an upgraded product available to purchase is purely coincidental of course.
