Congratulations on the new forum design. It looks great and I am really pleased it has RSS feed capabilities.

I'm glad we were able to keep some of the history, it would be a shame to lose it all. I think there are some interesting features to explore and possibly a few small details to sort out. Apparently with 354 posts I have posted over 535% of the total number of posts, surely some miscalculation.

I am looking forward to posts with pictures and attachments. And I like the idea of saving drafts rather than deleting most of the rants I can't post because they need to be turned into some form of sense (not that I always quite manage that).

Agreed, there are lots of great new features that will take time to explore and utilise fully.

Where are the smilies?

Thanks for the feedback.

Michael: The overall percentage errors are caused by me setting each member's post count to include posts on the old forum. I may just remove the percentage message. Unless I can think of something more clever. Unlikely.

Robwinton: Do you really want smilies? Smile Anyone else?

I must say this is more the type of forums I am used to. Very nice.

I really liked the old forum - I feel like an old fogey - but this is obviously well-planned and executed. Plus I just got my username activated in about half an hour so I feel like part of the club already.

Well done, then. Even though it pains me in some small way.

I am trying to get my view of the forum to show posts with the most recent post at the top but can't see how to do this - can anyone help?

I think it does it automatically - but you may need to click on the SE23 Topics link above rather than use the back button (or refresh)

Sure the sort order is fine listing topics - but within a topic, I have to scroll down to get to most recent. I would normally expect to be able to have the most recent post at the top rather than the bottom (then scroll down to review the history if I desire)..?

Posts are displayed in earliest to latest order because it's the natural way to read a conversation. It's standard practice for forums and has always been the case on SE23.com.
