The problem I have is that when I turn my mobile phone sideways on the old format changed to a bigger font to accommodate.

The new version doesn’t seem to do that so I’m squinting my eyes to read.

On my phone, and all my old phones, put your thumb and forefinger together and touch them both on the screen, then slide them apart, this should make text bigger.

Looks great. Thanks for all the hard work!

I have one question about “your posts” in quick links. It gives me a list of topics, I assume topics I’ve posted in, but they are not in any chronological order and I also can’t find a way to get from this list to see my actual posts so, what exactly is the point of this? It was exactly the same in the old system. The only way I can see a list of my actual individual posts (and jump to them) is to use the link in the “User Control Panel-Overview-Show your posts”. Strikes me the quick link should go to the same place but it doesn’t so am I doing something wrong, or I need to adjust a setting somewhere? Seems silly to have a quick link that’s useless.

I’d also support a slight increase in text size in the forums. Seems maybe 20% smaller. I read the forum a lot on my phone (iPhone XR) turned sideways and apart from the font being slightly smaller, the double click to expand the text box to fill the screen is now slightly less than before. It used to be one double click showed you the post plus the right hand panel and a second removed the right hand panel completely. Now there is still maybe 20% of the right hand panel showing, which means slightly smaller text box. This is nitpicking but maybe it’s an easy fix?

As an old fuddy duddy, I don't adapt well to change, but on this occasion, I have to say these are changes for the better. I guess if things always stayed the same, nothing would ever improve. Well done UTJ :thup:

One last thing. “Active topics” in the quick links doesn’t seem to be working. I get a blank page. And is there a guide to what the new topic icons on the left mean? I can only see three, a flag, a blue one and a grey one with a dot. Understand the flag but the other two? And are there any more?

Ditto, puff daddy.

My initial reaction was, Arrgghhhh.

But things change, move on.

I will adapt.

Great work UTJ and janus!

Is this all part of the change to remove .com and become ‘KUMB London’ though?!

Only f*** I have is the logo/header on mobile (iPhone XS Max I’m portrait mode), when scrolling down a thread, the logo is bigger than the header so overlaps the centre big of the page where it is slightly (the grey text and pointy bit of the speech bubble). It’s not an issue but not sure if you were aware. Let me know if you want a screenshot as an example.

Got this when I clicked login, at the top of the page.

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

Good stuff, gents. Let's be honest: This place was badly in need of some work. It feels like we've finally joined the 21st century. :) Only main issue I've seen so far is that the burger menu button which opens up the sidebar menu (very nice!) from the main page doesn't do anything once I'm in the forums. I'm sure it'll all iron out in the coming days though. It's a big improvement. Well done!

Firstly, I've no idea how anybody would know how to do this, it must be an incredible amount of hard work, so much respect and thanks.

Having said that, the thought of trying to navigate my way around something 'new' fills me with dread but it seems even I can work it out(assuming this post actually appears) so although I'm still huddled in the corner, rocking back and to, I have stopped sucking my thumb. :P

Good work UTJ and Co. :thup:

Thanks S-H, that's one I already have in hand (although somewhat down the pecking order presently!)

Thanks rudekid. For the record, the Forum menu squad links are working correctly but not on the rest of the site (the menus look the same but are coded slightly differently).

I'll be fixing that sometime today.

Thanks Elsie. Happy to confirm that is at the very top of our list of our dev's 'to dos' (in fact I'm surprised more folk haven't pointed that out).
