ok, so a week on what does everyone think of the the new forum?

for me, I've gotta say i think it's fantastic.... we haven't lost any content and everything that was here before is still here except for the problems which have all vanished.
I really like this latest version of the forum software..... the notification thing is good at the top of the page and the way you can customise it to select what you want to be notified about and also the new 'clever quotes'
Don't know if anyone has noticed them but now when you quote someone it time and date stamps the post being quoted which gives it some sort of context and there's also a little arrow next to the name of the member being quoted.... if you click on this arrow it takes you to the original post...very handy on say the spotted thread where we might be quoting a post from months earlier.
I like the way the forum automatically changes to a mobile version on my phone too.

The only niggle I have at the moment is that my Iphone won't keep me logged in but I had this problem last year and managed to sort it on the phone, not the forum so I'll try to remember what it was that I did.

Very happy with everything though s(c) 0-0 th:

When you check for new posts, and you see the threads listed, where is jump to last post?

I don’t see it any more. I can only go to the last page of the thread.

Not quite sure if this quite what you want, but I find it VERY useful. When logged in to your account, on any listing of threads you may see a little red "folder" marker to the left (pic below). If you click on that marker , it takes you YOUR last unread post in that thread. If you don't see a marker, then you are up to date with reading all the items in that thread.

I have to re login on my iPad each time I read a thread as it does not always remember me. Other than that all ok.
