Hi
I can not find where to change the setting so that when you open a thread, it automatically takes you to the most recent post. At the moment you are placed at the 1st post of a thread which on some of the longer threads takes you some time to find the most recent post :confused:

I use Tapatalk for accessing this forum. Since the upgrade to the new format, I can't login to the forum using the Tapatalk client. It keeps telling me login failed.

There's a blue dot to the left of the thread title that takes you to the first new post.

Charlie, If you look at the right side of each thread on each new post you'll see the name of the latest poster and a time under their name.

Click on the time and it will take you to the most recent post :)

So current update:
- Search Engine is having a slight meltdown with the reindexing, I'm working on that so that should be up and running soon.
- I've not set tapatalk up on here yet, how many people use it? I'm more than happy to add it on.
- I'll have a look at the location change and get back to you.
Thank you!
I think quite a few of us use it. For convenience on a smartphone...
Thanks again

When I clicked on the "New Profile Posts" tab it took me to a page that appeared to me to be a list of recent PMs between members? If I'm right could this be a bit of a privacy issue?
No this is posts on a persons profiles rather than a PM. PMs on this system are called conversations and they're private. Thanks for raising though, had me worried for a moment.

I've turned off trophies for a moment, I'm wondering if they were like the old ranking system and think they can possibly be used that way but it'll take some more research.

A really minor thing but I'm curious if the xenforo icon that is used on the bookmark of my mobile can be changed? I have a number of forums that use xenforo and they're all the same picture. A good visual pic to show difference is nice to have.

I know I could ask the others the same but it only came to mind here as the bcuk one changed over. :)

As I say, really minor.

They looked like that to me. Top level seemed to be 1000 posts when you get a trophy for addition. But you also get trophys for "being liked" if someone likes your post.
