Forum Problems and Solutions

I have noticed some little ‘annoyances’ recently with the forum. When I go into a specific forum it is set to sort the posts into some kind of ‘custom’ order when all I want to see is the latest posts so have to click on the ‘Recently Updated’ tab to get this.


Also I am not sure if this is a cache problem on my laptop (sorry not a techie) but I am now often seeing the last thread updated within forums on the main page as not showing the latest update/poster but rather an earlier one.

Hello Karl


Yes - a few annoyances definately! Obviously following the upgrade things are a bit different and I've been trying to get to the bottom of this one for a few weeks now. Even if you "save" custome settings - this seems to be Forum specific so not sure if that's the only answer.


There are some "Good" things as well - so usual swings and roundabouts - but defo on my "to-do" list.


I'll post back here with any updates, let me know if you find anything else

Thanks Ad - fonts seem a little unpredictable as well - judging by some posts by others it is not just me having the problem.

Well - I've spent a little time indulging my passion for trying to "fix everything" and seem to have made some progress


1) - Ordering

The Forum topic ordering is now consistent and should order Topics by last post made (excl. How to Use The Forum) This keeps the "new stuff" on top for all main Forums and Topics. Not sure if this is now back to "how it was" - maybe Karl can come back and let me know if it seems better now?


2) - Fonts

Fonts are still fun - maybe problems with the mobile app version. If anyone spots a connection SHOUT ME!


3) - New Items

The new button "View New Content" presents a list of Forum areas with new content. This maybe different now but does show all posts / replies etc with lots more options as well. You can view new items by content type (Member, Topic etc), by date range, or by other (participated Topics etc) all of which is pretty cool !



Hopefully the above helps - any more feedback please post away

    • I tried to make my frame as 'user-friendly' as possible so made all the consent given/retracted dates auto populate based on when questions answered/changed.
