  • Yep it doesn't seem as intuitive in that it doesn't remember what you've read although I don't know if that's down to me cleaning my cache out. I notice there is a 'new topics' which is good. I did see a 'Todays Posts' but I cant find it anymore. On another forum (non-music related) that I use from time to time it has a 'view new posts' and 'view today's posts' which is generally what I use to browse it. It's a high traffic site which is always up to date as it's run by a techie and it generates hack attacks and Spam almost daily.

    I think a lot of people used the function on the old site to just read all the unread new posts. I also notice you click on a newly updated thread and it doesn't take you to the end of the thread.

    All good though it's just case of getting used to everything.

    I notice there's a Blog tab. And another labelled Articles.
    Can I suggest one of these be used to host the original content of the vgplus site...?
    Or am I overlooking something?

        On my android phone I use Photo Resizer. There'll be a similar app for the iphone ...

        • I notice we have an articles section now. Just a thought but it would be nice to feature some threads in there maybe? The infamous UK Jazz chart comes to mind and probably loads more that are buried deep in our rich history.

Sites starting to look great though, logo back, pic loading all super tis a bit bright but I'm sure someone will play around with different 'themes'.
            Is this the link you're looking for?

            • Cheers ashra that's it. I assume you filtered the results or is there a direct link from the board? Either way I can book mark the URL for the mo. Thanks.

                You should have 'New Topics' under Forums, top left?

                • Yep got that, will that show you new posts in threads or just new threads? I really need to sit down and faff about I'm using a tablet at the moment which doesn't lend itself well to browser tweaking.

                  Wait a moment, seems it does, cheers Benny.

                  • Is there any way to get the 'view first unread post' option back within threads? That was very handy with any of the longer threads. As Amidar has kind of mentioned it already I'm guessing it's not possible? I'm not referring to the New Topics or Today's Posts options, I mean when you're already inside a thread and want to skip to the first unread post within it. There used to be a button for it at the top of the page when you clicked on thread / topic.

                    • You can go to the first unread post from the thread title - in the column on the left for Last Post, click the blue arrows under the username. That any help?

                          Am I being thick or does that just take me to last post in the thread? Rather than the newst one since my last visit to the thread... My brain's not functioning properly yet... I'll add I'm viewing the forum on a mobile in Chrome on Android.

                          • I'm pretty sure it takes you to the last unread post as from memory last night it took me to a post above a post at the end of a thread so it could be that the last post you saw was the first unread post or I could be wrong again.

                            I've just signed into the forum on opened 4 unread topics in new tabs and then remembered the blue arrow on the last one so my brains not much better!

                              Yeah, you are probably right - it is flagged up as 'last post', so think it just does that. So, the answer is probably no, unless admins can do something under the bonnet?
