Evening folks.

We've made some minor changes to the forum this weekend;
  • The fleet lists and Bygone Era links are back - they were temporarily removed following the recent updates to Flickr and changes to their API (which meant the photos didn't work).
  • The header bar is now in white rather than black, intended to be less intrusive.
  • The forum homepage includes a new 'chatbox' - designed for users to chat among each other, without fear of 'clogging up' the main forum threads with general chit-chat.
  • 'View unread posts' option is now back.
  • A new 'announcement' section is now available on the forum homepage.

Appreciate everyone's thoughts and feedback on these developments. If anything appears buggy, let us know and we'll try and get it fixed.

Cheers,
Dan.

In the GNE discussion thread, Michael commented about the sideways scroll on mobile being back. I'm on my laptop, with my phone charging in another room, and can't be arsed to get off the sofa, so can't confirm whether it's back for me, right now.

And I have an issue already. Reading through a thread, if I want to access the unread posts list, it's a 2 click jobby, as the link isn't at the top of the page. Fist, I have to click "forum", at the top and only then can i select, unread, today's or whatever. Again, on desktop version, though I do now need to get off my backside to empty the dryer before the beeping drives me up the wall.

Cant seem to access that navigation bar on the right in mobile view, so I've got to keep toggling between that and desktop view.

Also there's no menu bar options in mobile view. Just the NEB logo and search box. Even in landscape view.

That's a server side issue rather than an 'us' issue! One of the admins needs to update the logo!
