    If you go to preferences, under options it gives you the option to turn off seeing peoples signatures, works well and tidies things up nicely

    Ok... on the old site we used to be able to edit subject titles for threads (before the edit facility was removed) but I can't seem to be able to do that now.

    Any chance of that option being available again?

    Well quite John, large signatures are a huge waste of postable real estate :sulk:

    Yeah, things like signatures are the sort of thing that we have to go and reconfigure, we'll get on it, it's obviously more important than i'd figured :)

    I've looked but can't figure it, is there a way to have the members online list in alphabetical order ?

    Thanks.

    Nope, still can't edit the subject title Tony.

    When I click on it it just comes out of edit mode and takes you back to the posted thread

    Have you selected the 'tools' button at the bottom of your post?

    I don't have a Tools button, just Edit. Edit is limited to post content and doesn't allow advanced stuff like title edit.

    I'm wondering if there's a permissions issue with using the sales section.

    I cannot check what you’re able to see with your permissions. That’s an admin function. One will be along shortly to lend a hand.

    I've just noticed that edit is different depending on if you're on mobile or desktop.

    On mobile, hit tools then edit.
    On desktop, edit is there straight away.

    I'll go through the edit permissions tomorrow, generally through the subscribed members have more edit abilities than regular members.

    Just wondering what the capacity is for private messages on the new site.

    Is it the same as the old site, 100 for ordinary members and 500 for full?

    That reminds me of an odd thing, just as a function of how xenforo vs vbulletin. On VB each message is it's own one. On xenforo, each message forms part of a conversation and they're all held together. If you have any old messages that transferred across then they'll have been kept as individual messages.
