Seldom use the Index page, as I normally go in via the Recent Topics tab - saves looking through the Index. ;)

The website was down earlier and the issue that caused it was resolved but a secondary problem which appeared to be an internet server rather than a PCv issue cropped up and crashed this site for a while.
Thanks for your patience and perseverance, some forum security upgrades are being carried out and new features are currently being developed which will hopefully prove popular with forum users if and when they are introduced . :)

Don't worry, it hasn't been forgotten.

Missing posts when searching using the "last Post" access facility.

I usually use the forum by looking at the threads where new posts have been listed in green, and where those arise in topic areas where I tend to respond.

However since the latest "upgrade" to the forum, my prefered method of using the "last post" highlight in the righthand box seems to bring up a truncated thread. When I have needed to refer back to the OP of the thread, flipping back to the opening post in the thread reveals the first response at the head and not the Opening Post which is nowhere to be seen.

This seems to be the case wherever the "last Post" option is offered.

If however I enter the thread by using the threads title in column 3, then all the post seem to be shown.

Just for clarity this is using Windows 10 Pro 64bit, with Chrome or Firefox.

Have the fonts been changed as well, When reading the " I " seems to be very thin. And at times the font is "strange" to read.

Thanks, both, for your feedback. I will see it is all passed on. The fonts look fine to me – anyone else?!

The fonts look OK to me, but there seems to be a lot of jittering again as adverts load. It's a good job there is a new 'Unthank You' button as I thanked somebody by mistake as the page jumped when I was trying to select something else. I noticed it and could then Unthank.

The default email tick box change seems to have been made. Ta.

Glad you like the 'unthank you' button! And we will check the page load speeds.
