I did some major updates through the night. It’s broken a few things which I’ll fix hopefully over the next night.
Broken: New Topic Link in Menu
Broken: User avatar area in forum.

Hi Lee – cheers for your efforts with this.
Are you still have the issue you mentioned above @jayceedee
All posts now have what appears to be a green exclamation mark to the left of the Topic title. ( That could just as easily be a tree or a light bulb, however………….. that lack of clarity could well be down to these old eyes!!!
Things that didn’t happen ( for info, not adding to your load:) ) :-
- I went to quote from your post in my usual fashion, ie highlight the relevant section of your post and then click the quote button in the post header, it didn’t drop down to the REPLY TO: dialogue box with the quoted section already inserted and referenced.
- You did the @jayceedee thing and I haven’t had any indication of a notification.
Hope you got some decent sleep!!
Ignore number 2, as soon as I posted, the forum notified me that I’d mentioned me.😁January 11, 2020 at 10:55 am #39593
Tried to add a second edit, but I guess it timed out before I could submit, as it didn’t appear.
I was just letting you know that the Read/Unread indicator on the Latest Topics page was working OK, but as you stated above, lacks clarity.👍👍January 11, 2020 at 2:56 pm #39611ParticipantBob Williams@bullstuff2Forumite Points: 13,458
I have made several posts (including a couple of edits) and a new Topic, also including an edit. The only (tiny) problem I noted was that the post/topic ends right above the signature. So I recommend that everyone knocks the line down one row at the end of the post, which worked for me. Otherwise, everything works fine Lee.

That is not an issue I encounter as I do not use a signature. In fact, I have seen no issues to date.January 11, 2020 at 6:18 pm #39617ParticipantEd P@edpsForumite Points: 16,306
Thanks Lee. Sorry about the red haze in my previous post, it had just reached the point of being a really major irritation, not helped by fending off three young grandchildren.
If you are going to set up moderation as a requirement for new posters etc., I suggest that you somehow flag them to the poster as mine just seemed to disappear except for a fleeting note saying under moderation. Blink and it disappeared, as a result I was just left in limbo not knowing what was the problem for many of my posts.
Just as a test BBC Link.

I can’t seem to get the quote feature to work at all.

Love it, Lee – green tick = read, red cross = unread!! Couldn’t be simpler.👍👍January 12, 2020 at 1:23 am #39636
Yea much easier. Green read, unread red. Try and fix the quote now! And yes slept 12 bloody hours with just one toilet brake. Never slept that long before. Had a good couple of meals through the night so that may of helped.January 12, 2020 at 1:38 am #39639

Quote should also be working now.January 12, 2020 at 1:39 am #39640

Sig padding should be sorted now.January 12, 2020 at 1:43 am #39641January 12, 2020 at 2:08 am #39644
I believe I have also fixed the avatar/User Name overlap in the opening post section.January 12, 2020 at 9:06 am #39645
Also an heads up. I had to disable the email address for forumite. It’s important this is working. I don’t know what’s going to happen when I re-enable it. It may start sending them new years notices out again. Obviously I will try and find the problem tonight and fix it before I re-enable it. Plus a few more tweaks to the site tonight finish the fixes off.January 12, 2020 at 9:16 am #39646

One other (probably the same problem) was that posts with links AND a new topic disappeared completely (I do not think they even made it to moderation). I’ll try to test it with a broken topic about BeOS (in vogue when Apple was looking like going bust). If you see it, then everything works.January 12, 2020 at 10:39 am #39653
I see it. That post has 3 links. Previously if you had more than 2 links it had to be approved. I have uped the limit so it should be sorted. 👍January 12, 2020 at 11:00 am #39654ParticipantRichard@sawbomanForumite Points: 6,517
I guess I am not in the mood to challenge much. So far, I have no issues it is all working smoothly, thank you, Lee.
It is amazing how many side issues creep out of the woodwork when you change one item in some software.January 12, 2020 at 11:35 am #39656
It is that, but it has to be done to keep us safe and secure.January 12, 2020 at 12:04 pm #39657ParticipantDave Rice@ricedgForumite Points: 9,090
Wasn’t sure about the crosses and ticks to start with, but I think I’d miss them already.January 12, 2020 at 12:21 pm #39661
