I've been hard at work coding new features since January

These have been on the todo list for a long time, I hope you find the new features useful.

1. You can now mark a topic that you've started Solved (or Sold if it's in the Buy, Sell & Trade) below the first post or from the topic list.

2. Authors can "bump" their own topics to move them to the top of the topic list without having to post a reply.

3. Buy, Sell & Trade forum now supports entering Price + "Multiple items" and "Make offer" options. Location is automatically copied from your home page.

4. New option "Allow replies by other users" when posting in the Buy & Sell, by default it's turned ON which means other users will be allowed to leave a reply on your Buy & Sell post (same behaviour as before). If you do NOT want people to be able to publicly comment on your Buy & Sell post, uncheck the option and viewers will be shown a button to send you a Private Message instead.

All of these new features are fully supported in the mobile/smartphone interface as well, along with many other mobile UI enhancements. If you haven't visited this website from your phone's web browser in a while, check it out.

If you see any unfamiliar icons in the topic list, hover your mouse pointer over them and a "tooltip" description should pop up describing its function.

If there are any bugs with the new features, reply below or click "Contact Support" at the bottom of any page

Thanks,
Skye

In the TR6 tech forum when you hover over the bold subject line a box pops up with the text of the original message so you can see what the topic is about which I find to be a nice feature and avoids open topics I'm not interested in. In the MGB tech forum the box only says unread reply. Is it possible to ad the preview feature to the MGB tech forum?

Skye. The black drop down menu bar which remains at the top of the screen is behaving strangely when in a topic. The 'click' drop down is fine but the hover brings up a preview of the current topic on all of the menu items. A bit weird.
Doesn't happen in topic list view.



The secret to creativity is knowing how to hide your sources.

To the intelligent person, life appears infinitely mysterious, but the stupid have an answer for everything.

Day Dreamers, don't discourage them. That's where original thought comes from.

Skye,
Can you left justify the column with the optional tags so that it is easier to see next to the subject?

I never saw a response to my previous post:

Skye,

Very minor observation (don't you just hate it when people nit-pick?). I added a new Journal post today 3/8, and when you click on the photos in the Journal they open in the full window (without the caption) instead of a small pop-up window like before. The odd thing is that my older posts still work like they always have.

Still works... just different. FYI.

Just checked my Journal again, and now the photos are displaying correctly. Please tell me if you've seen this issue before and/or fixed it - or did I have one too many ales?

Maybe you clicked the image before the lightbox Javascript (pop-up window) was fully loaded.
