My whole forum page has changed, or have I done something to my phone?

Overnite,
Did you see the test site Gryphon told us about a week ago?

Gryphon,
All the topics appear to sort from page 1, which could be years ago.. I feel that when I joined, I was able to alter it to bring up last post first (sort last to first?)

The green brackets showing how many new posts there are, does not always disappear when I have opened them.

In private messages, I cannot delete messages. I have not tried to do anything else there.

No preview option?

Apart from those minor niggles, it looks good.
I have my shoulder to the wheel,
my nose to the grindstone,
I've put my best foot forward,
I've put my back into it,
I'm gritting my teeth,

Now I find I can't do any work in this position!

Is it just me or is anybody else finding when you click on forum latest it takes you back to the first page of the topic instead of the last post

That is the way it is, but I'm enjoying going over some of the very early posts when I have time.

What does "Away" in orange under your name mean? Used to be "Online" or Offline"

The new format seems a bit cleaner. Good job.

PS Just jumped across to look at a couple of different threads then came back and orange "Away" has gone to the usual green "Online"

I dont mind the new look and yes it does have a tendency to open at the first page but that is not a big issue is it?

I think it is significant because every time you go to a subject - say after logging on and note there are a few new posts in green to be checked - it requires a click and load to the old first post then another click and load to the latest. It doubles the time (or halves the speed) of the old system.

I normally check every new post but find after a couple of days on the new system I am becoming selective and only checking those of special interest and letting what might be interesting stuff slide off the bottom of the list.

Hi,

I have changed the default setting to display Latest Post First so that should fix the problem for most people.

If you prefer to have the Oldest Post show First you can update the setting in your Profile(or Preferences) under the Forum Settings Tab.

Morris,

The Preview is still there, it is now a Tab just above the Editing Icons when you are typing your post.
