don't know if it was like this before....but why does the fast reply come up underneath the similar topics.....when i'm doing a fast reply...i generally don't care about similar topics....just the topic i'm trying to reply to in a fast manner....hence the fast reply button...

Working on the custom pages (i.e. geeku ap) as we speak. I'll look at the quick replies. That doesn't seem right. :tazz:

Just click the - button on the right of the screen next to similar topics. That will make it smaller and a quite a bit less scrolling.

What happened to the "show no replies" filter that used to be available at the top of each forum? I found this very useful. I hope to see it restored.

The "Top 10 posters" links are working again on the Forum Home page, if I'm not mistaked they were disabled.
I have also noticed that when you use the clickable smililes, they get appended to the end no matter what the position of the cursor.
BTW..Love the "Quick Edit" Feature. :tazz:

Hiya

I just noticed that if I reply to a post using "Add Reply" and then subsequently post again there, instead of showing 2 seperate posts, they are rolled into 1. How do I get round that?

Ah, good catch. I forgot about that new 'feature'. I'll disable it.

Merge member's concurrent posts

When a member posts twice within n minutes, once after the other in a topic they will be merged into one post. Enter the number of minutes to capture concurrent posts. Enter 0 to not use.
