    Thanks for that Tony, looks like we won't be getting any 'your mailbox is full' warnings any time soon then :)

    At the top of the page there is a line with the following buttons


    Would it be possible to get that row at the bottom of the page somewhere as well? As when I have reviewed a thread I have to scroll up to the top of the thread to click the recent posts / new posts button to get a refreshed view of the activity on the site.

    Not particularly a big problem but one I thought may have a simple and easy enough solution to implement. - Does anyone else think this would benefit them or am I just being difficult?

    I think there is a problem with inserting pictures, when you click the add photo icon you get a pop up to enter the link. You can do that but it just inserts an [​IMG]

    Can't you just use the 'up' button on the right of the page?

    YES! I can - you know, I never noticed that :) - it even took me a few seconds to find it after reading your post. Cheers.

    If yours is like mine, the arrows disappear when the page is static so it would be easy to miss it.

    A big congratulations to everyone involved in the migration; it's gone brilliantly.

    But ..... :)

    For some reason I can't upload a picture onto any thread in the Full Members forum; I can on other forums (such as this one) but not that one. I don't have the 'upload file' option button on the bottom right. Any particular reason why?

    I use the picture icon from the list at the top, drop a direct link into it.

    But I don't need to use a third party host for any other forum!
    In any other forum I get these options in the bottom right:

    In the Full Members forum I only get these:

    Just tried doing a search for a persons posted threads and it came up as no content despite the fact I know this person has posted multiple threads. :dunno:

    So I did the same search for myself and got the same result and I know for sure I've posted stuff :rolleyes:

    OK thanks, I'll look into it now, it might be something caused by the recent patch our server guys installed.

    Have you tried this before and it worked? I just need establish whether this is a new bug or something I've just not spotted before.

    OK a bit more digging and I think the patch upgrade has done something to the search engine.
