    One 'button' I'm anticipating is the "go to latest post" thread on the "What's New" results list.

    I see the BST is back in. That Feedback sub-forum is a saver. Wouldn't want to lose forum creds now do we?
    We have great crew looking after the forum. Good job, good job!

    Not sure what you guys did over the last 36 hours or so, but whatever it was it's working.

    My page loads are much faster and more consistent, and haven't seen a timeout on a post since Wednesday.

    Good work guys, you are definately making noticable progress [​IMG]

    Kudos for the new PM system, I just love it! Also it's very neat that I now get email notifications on new PMs, been missing that on old forum. I'm really starting to like the new design a lot

    Anybody figure out how to load a pic from an iPad? I understand that the new forum allows pics to be posted directly from a PC without having a hosting service (ie, Flikr, Photobucket, etc.), but I don't use a PC. I am using Safari on the iPad but until I figure it out I have to open Tapatalk, search for the thread, and then insert my pics...and then to go back to Safari and refresh. I was hoping it would be easier than that.

    When I click "Upload a file" it offers me a little black window but I can't click anything.

    Also, where are the smileys? I see people using them, but I don't see them. I asked before, possibly on a different thread, but I either lost it or nobody answered.

    Help a brutha' out!

    As with the old forum this function has been disabled for members. So you still need to use a third party hosting site.

    There is a known problem with iOS in that the Rich Text Editor function is unavailable. Later a patch will be looked at to enable the functionality but it won't be for a while yet.

    One of the mods was having a play around on his Ipad & found a work around but that info was lost when we switched over.

    Here is a list of all the smilies & their BBcode to use in the mean time.

    Hey Dr. Jekell. I've got another question maybe you could help with. What is a permalink and how do I do it...on purpose that is. Everyonce and a while I accedentally open a window for a permalink but don't know how to do it again and don't know what to do with it anyway. Okay I just figured out that if I click on the post # it lets me have the permelink box again.

    A Permalink is just a link back to that particular post. So if you are in another thread & want to link to a post with relevant info in it you just click on the #XX in the bottom right of the post.

    When the box pops up just use the top link if you are going to insert it or you can use the "BB Code Link Snippet" to make a link with the name of the thread.

    Actually, it takes me to where I've already been. One step backwards.

    Just an update:

    There is a work around for this problem, you need to change the user agent your devices browser uses. There ways to do this available via Google.

    For safari - Here is a work around.
