    What's New

    What has happen to What's New. It seems to have disappeared. Used to find it very useful.

    It's not something I use, do you mean 'New Posts'?

    Yes I suppose it is, but I'm sure it was titled Whats New and I think it used to be in the same line as Home, Forum, Reatilers, Garage etc.

    It used to be an easy way to see what had been posted in all the different forums since your last visit - especially useful when I was a Moderator!!

    It seems that perhaps the New Posts has replaced it. Seems to do the same job with a small title and a different name.

    Wish they'd fiddle it back so New Posts link is back on the new posts page.

    It does, but you cant refresh the page for new posts as each new posts click is uniquely identified & thus an F5 doesnt show new posts, just the same page you were on when you last clicked new posts, imho its just plain daft, Rob was supposed to be working on it.

    It does pretty much exactly the same job (albeit with two minor issues atm - more in a second), and as far as 'small title and a different name' - indeed, but we're hoping that's not all too much of an inconvenience. Basically we need a) some more space on the top bar for things we're doing and b) the top bar to behave more like a tab-selection, where the lower portion will show content and context relevant links to the tab selected. [continues...]

    I wish there were some emoticons in that to reassure me you weren't having a little pop.

    [...continued] as advised previously, making the 'New Posts' button persist (and run a new search each click) once it has been clicked is on my list of little things to address with the NavBar (along with functionality of 'Mark Forums Read'), but [as I'd have advised you (Nigel) if you'd queried where I'm up to directly], we've got a 'workaround' for it at the moment, and to action a permanent 'fix' it's going to need a bit of code figuring out - but just now we're still working on some other more pressing issues (as well as losing time by dealing with the various daft nonsense going on amongst a small segment of the forum). It also hasn't helped that I've been away for a few days at a wedding, but to be fair a) it was my cousin, b) I was helping out with some photos.

    Anyway, I'll report back on one (or all) of these threads when I've been able to dedicate some serious time to the 'New Posts' link, and indeed getting the 'Mark Forums Read' option working properly. If you get to wondering where I'm at, feel free to enquire.

    Regards,

    Rob.
    The truth they're trying to keep from you is that IPv6 has nothing to do with address space; we're actually running out of full stops.

    Thanks Rob for the details of the situation. Much appreciated.
