James, when replying to messages, you can't see the thread anymore, but in the old days you used to be able to. Is it possible to change it so you can? Or is there some way of doing it that I haven't quite mastered?
I don't recall promising that, and it's not easily do-able with the current setup.
But when the new version (v5) of Phorum (the software we use for the forum) comes out it will (at last) have the facility to divide long threads into pages (say, 10 posts at a time, not 50 like the Wicked thread)
And with a bit of luck you'll be able to go straight to the last post that was added since you last visited the site, without having to wade through all the messages from scratch.
In the meantime you can click on the Threaded View link at the bottom of each page, which will display one message per page, which might make it easier to navigate to the desired messages.
When do we get Phorum 5 please, James? I should like to send red roses to TLMJJ, but at the moment they're black and dark black only. That must be a good reason for updating sooner rather than later...
Thank you, TLMJJ, I tried my best for you! I felt unable to trump a real picture though - even if of expensive origami. And now even feedback has turned into a teen-flirting experience... we may yet hear stirrings of the giant Moderator of SE1
