    There is a bridge between the front end articles and the forums, we've disabled this at the moment while we work on forum, but it will allow complete site interaction. Something for the near future :)

    Janne, bumping something at gone 11pm because you're impatient, it's a bit irritating.

    Thanks for the link and comments Nice65

    Hi Mods,

    I like it.

    I’ll leave others to offer suggestions and the like.


    Cheers.

    When I click on the 'New Post' button it does not show my own threads, even if someone else has posted on it. Is this correct ?

    There sems to be no quotation marks in the toolbar above? Or have I missed them, or do you do it manually now?

    It won't show them if you've already viewed the most recent post. Try clicking on the recent posts link and see if that helps.

    Click on the little + sign in a box next to the film icon and you get a drop down menu appear with some options, quote being one of them

    You can either click Reply on someone's post or if you click on the plus sign as shown below it gives you the quotation option:

    I have to say i much prefer the like button, as it just gives me the opportunity to say thanks, without having to type something in.

    I'm trying to like it (sorry, no pun intended).
    Son1 told me bluntly to accept change cheerfully, to approach it with an open mind, so I'm trying.
    The biggest issue is that folks don't add to the conversations if they just use the Like button; I've already found that myself. Just click and move on instead of contributing a word or two.

    We'll see.

    I don't like it at all and it's for that exact reason why I'm refusing to use the feature.

    If I like something enough to hit a button I can make the effort to hit a few more keys and tell the person so

    I'd have to agree Toddy, I almost hit the like button just now, instead of replying. It's an easy option.

    Ah, I have changed to 'Default style' and that does not have a 'recent post' button that I can see.

    Yes.
    I have to agree with you both, but the system is there, and I did promise I'd try.
    So, we'll see, but it is too easy to click and move on.

    M.....scattering likes across the forum :rolleyes:

    Mary, scattering likes, appreciation, thanks, quodos, is a good civilised thing to do, and makes people make as though they have made a worthwhile post.

    How many posts have you put effort into and had little response? Me, a lot. Its just nice to feel a little appreciation. To know someone benefited. The alternative, nothing, is more anti social.

    Case in point.
    I 'Liked' this, instead of posting :rolleyes:

    Yeah I'm still trying to decide what to do with the default setting. The trouble is it's a different template which means changes like that won't transfer from UI.X across without quite a bit more work. I either have to go through and brand the default template then add changes such as Recent Posts or remove the default template option.

    Aye, maybe, but it doesn't add to the flow of conversation, and the forum thrives on that.
    We need to sort of somehow get both means of communication balanced I think.
