    I think you have understood the problem OK. If anything can be done it would be great. Thanks

    Rob, Yes you have understood the problem OK.

    Is there a way a I can change the order of the posts in a forum to show the last post first rather than as it is at the moment.

    Thanks

    On my 26" monitor it appears as a thin Brazillian strip in the middle of my screen. I'd rather it filled the screen... oh and the long usernames wrap.

    @h5djr I'll look into adding a newest-on-top thread-view. It's one thing I haven't seen an out-of-the-box option for; but I don't think it's a particularly widely used option when there, which might explain why code to handle it hasn't been included from stock. There's a hack to enable an option but it needs checking before we consider installing it.

    @Spacemonkey Any chance you could fire a screen-grab to me via PM please?

    Cheers,

    Dealing with negative comments with sarcasm rarely ends well either.

    OK, some specifics:
    1) Marking a Forum as read now means scrolling right to the top of the page, clicking and waiting for a dialog box to appear and then clicking again on that - 2 clicks instead of one.

    2) I'm not a fan of the monochrome look as I find it much more tiring on the old eyes and much harder to find specific areas (like sticky threads, headers, etc.) (it's one of the main things I dislike about Office 2013 - hence my comparison with M$). I understand that one look and feel for all devices make it easier for Admins but as there are many more users than Admins then surely our views have to take preference over Admins convenience?

    I know I'm probably going to be in a minority but I used to that, and has never stopped me from airing my concerns before and won't now.

    You should find the multi quote next to the like button at the bottom right of each post... just click as many as you want.

    If there were cogent comments, they'd have been met with something other than facetiousness [- don't kid a kidder ;)]. Please understand that there are a lot of people to please around here which makes it a tricky task at the best of times, and while I can't speak for anyone else, I don't expect any thanks for it; however I do expect people to be mindful of that and help us to help them - which I don't think is much.

    Ohhhhhh the humanity! [THAT's sarcasm! :p] - Seriously, I can understand how this might be a bit of a pain in the backside, but I'm sure you'll agree it's hardly the end of the world. I'll look into options for streamlining the process but I hope you can understand that at present this can't realistically go high on the priority list.

    I'm not quite sure where you get the apparent idea that we put-in hundreds (if not thousands) of man hours to work the upgrade to this point in order to make the site easier to operate; and my view of Audi-Sport.net is most often that of an SSH terminal, so front-of-house aesthetics are really only a concern for me as far as what is functional, compatible and to the taste of as many members as possible. Hopefully you've seen that stickies have been made to stand out a little more, and noticed similar tweaks happening in other areas of the site (colour added to headers, bold text/icons for forums with new content, etc.) - We're continuing to do that, and would appreciate constructive feedback on the changes as you see them.

    All the best,

    Rob.

    Well despite my earlier criticisms, during the course of the day alot has improved with site as to how it was, along with me getting used to the new layout so i think you all deserve a big old dose of credit for what you have achieved in such a short space of time, well done & keep up the good work guys :D

    @glospete - we've reinstated Tapatalk; I found that feeds seemed to be working but I couldn't browse the forum 'from the front' (as it were), I deleted it from my forum list and re-added it and was able to browse as normal. Fire me a PM if that doesn't fix it there?

    Yep, things are looking better and improving !!

    All we need now is to have a page length of 40 posts, rather than 20! (Hint hint) ;)

    @CHEZ *Bare* with you? You crack on if you want chap, but I'll pass. :p

    Browsing on Windows Phone is difficult to check here; from what I can work out you should be able to improve the situation significantly by shutting-down the handset, popping it in a jiffy bag (along with some unwashed socks) and posting it to 1 Microsoft Way, Redmond, Washington.. ;) Seriously though, browsing on your Windows phone previously, did you use the site through a web browser or via Tapatalk (or similar)? If via the browser, was it using the standard 'desktop' type theme?

    Classifieds forums should be right at the bottom of the index; if you can't see them, please let me know - some accounts didn't have their permissions translated correctly, which is something I hope to reset site-wide overnight tonight.

    The new software has a points system which is similar to the old platform's reputation setup, but it might not be possible to fully integrate all the old numbers; if we can we will, but I couldn't honestly say when with so much going on - all I can say for certain is that if we can't pull it in, it won't be for want of trying. If we have to start again with new systems, I'll fudge your score if you avoid whatever it was earned your reputation previously :p

    We had real fun & games bringing avatars and attachments over from the old setup; signature pics were a bit of a pipe-dream for the most part unfortunately; are you able to re-upload one?

    Cheese,

    Could links (maybe tags too?) be made a different colour (and italics ?) - just to show they are links?

    See post #63 above, the link just looks like normal text !

    +1, when clicking a thread takes you to page 1. Does not have to be re-ordered, just send you to the last page like it used to.

    Suggestion?

    Making the borders around each post darker/black, will help with the issue of it all looking like its blending into one.

    Hi

    This is just a thought... What is the brightness set to on your screen... The background of the posts is grey and there is a dark grey border there already... just wondering if that's why they are missing..

    The brightness is not glaring, and reasonable contrast (almost THX calibration ;) )

    I can definitely see the grey background of the posts, but it's not that contrasting against the white of the skin. I'm sure making the post border black black will help :)

    My Nokia windows phone would not let me put text in the reply box with the old site, used my old phone which was a pain. But with the new format I can so big thumbs up guys. Can't upload pictures, but my old phone will. I'm sure most problems will get sorted.
    Would like to alter background colour.
    I think it's understandable some members have a few gripes. Some folk just can't handle change.

    Not a fan I'm afraid, although like everyone else I will get used to it!

    It feels clunkier than it was, and more like other forums.
    One of the things I really liked about ASN over other forums (other than the content) was the slick and easy UI
