Welcome to the new forum! Here's some tips and tricks

Recommended Posts

Pre update, if I clicked on a thread that I’ve viewed before, I was taken to the page and section that I’ve viewed before.

Post update, regardless how many times I’ve seen a post before, I’m taken to the top of page 1.

Why is this?

Click on the number of replies and it takes you to the end. It’s not obvious but it does work at least.

No luck, 99% of the time I’m on my iPhone and it’s not letting me click on the number of replies. If I try, the phone offers to copy the text.

I change it to desktop version on my phone as the mobile version does my nut in. The same platform is used on a music forum I use and that’s the same. I don’t know if the people who design the ‘upgrade’ ever use the stuff they work but they seem to do some weird shit at times.

Click on the brown dot or star next to the thread title and it takes you to the last unread post. 

As tested extensively on my iPhone. 

🙂

Muchos gracias, that works very nicely.

Although I still prefer the format of the old page.

Sorry if I’ve missed this but how on earth do I get the desktop version on my iPhone? If I hold the refresh button down I get ‘Request desktop version’ but the forum software overrides it and it stays in mobile. I literally cannot use the forum at the moment as this mobile version seems terrible.

 

plz halp, miss AS.

The issue with only thumbnail images showing in threads from prior to the upgrade was something that if I remember right was meant to resolve itself in time as the server refreshed things...however a lot of threads still seem to have tiny embedded images.  Like so...page 1 of my fleet blog.

Is this something that's just the way it is, or is it going to resolve at some point?

So far the only way to fix it from my side is to totally delete an attachment and re-add it...and that just ain't happening with the upload system and editor these days...

I have found that I can fix the issue, by opening up a small image so its full size, then copy its URL, and past it so it embeds itself like your linking an external image

(so I sort of create a feedback loop LOL) thats still quite a faff tho

 

the small image thing seems to be a thumbnail thing, as the images themselves are fine once ya click on them

maybe if someone can have a root around in the server software, and refresh the thumbnails to a size that's not 100x100 pixels?

      Hi all,
      Apologies for the downtime, there was some routing issues with our hosting provider which meant the server was cut off from the outside world. I'm finding out what went wrong and how we can avoid a repeat.

      A proper shite 90s jet ski just came up by me and I’m sorely tempted. Looks like a decent version of the year, a seadoo spi.
       
      Seems rotax powered which I remember from my karting days and I’m hoping to go and see it tomorrow. Looks like a two cylinder carb fed job.
       

       
      Anyone played with them?
       
      As usual the engines in bits and it’s missing the jet whatever that is. Presume where the prop fires water down?
       
      Are there any rules to it’s use or can I just get it running and blast about on it on the local water and lochs?

      So I’ve held off here for a month now but I’m stuck and need advice.
       
      Some of you might remember I had a Golf Turbo estate for sale in Jan. Well I sold it to Exiled_Tat_Gatherer and he paid for it with the intention of collection.
       
      But, I haven’t had a message off him in nearly 4 weeks now and I’ve messaged loads. I’ve phoned him and got voicemail. Now I’m not trying to muddy the lads credibility at all, he’s done his bit but I’m worried about not being able to get in touch.
       
      He’s in Belgium and intended to fly over and collect. I’m aware he bought numerous other cars off here and wanted to collect them all in a oner but he’s now not posted in ages.
       
      What the hell do I do? I really need the car shifting but he’s paid for it. I can’t store it forever and I’m still paying tax on it so it can be legal for him to collect.
       
      Really stuck. Any advice appreciated. I’m erring towards selling it on and refunding him if I can get hold of him but don’t want to be the arsehole.
       
      Sorry if this isn’t the way to do things but I’m really at a loss.

      Is anyone else into their kits? In new money, that’s scale models.
       
      Is anyone selling any? I have an unhealthy collection that I can’t particularly let the wife see.
