Don't know if this an option, but other forums have a feature that if I click on a thread with unread posts, it brings me straight to the last post I read rather than me having to work out where I left off. If that was on the list it would be great.

And in 5 mins - knowing my history - someone is going to point me to an option for me to do that already

Thanks for the update btw.
You'd be right. :D This was already a feature in the old version, but heres how.

Just click on the red icon and it should take you to the first unread post.
Sigh... so predictable - lockdown seems to be atrophying my brain.

I can't see your image on this PC - but had a look and found the red flag thing. I hadn't noticed it before the upgrade
I like your right leg. A lovely leg for the role.

Probably related to this upgrade but I was using Tapatalk to access this forum on mobile and it looks like whatever required pages it used are gone now (I think it’s looking for /mobiquo/mobiquo.php).

Hopefully this feature is coming back at some point!

You should be able to find it as Babbling 'brook now, if you do a search for that.

I'm seeing some weirdness in the layout. I'm seeing a floating bit of text in the top left hand corner as shown:

Image

I think this has to do with the css for the skiplink class.

Image

It looks like in links.css around line 185, the left value is set to -999px which means it's yeeted all the way over there.

But it doesn't actually seem to do anything so maybe you could add the css style line visibility: hidden; to get rid of it.

Chrome. It could be due to a high resolution, one of my screens is 3000x2000.

Hopefully should be good again after a full page reload.

I can see it actually - in Safari, Chrome, anything you like.
"Skip to content".
It's only visible if you have your window size very large (wide).
There is a skipLink class on the P element under the logo as you can see from the screenshot above.

The style for skipLink is:

Code: Select all

.skiplink {
    position: absolute;
    left: -999px;
    width: 990px;
}

And the position rule is being overruled by:

Code: Select all

.site-description p, .site-description h1 {
    position: relative;
    z-index: 2;
    color: #DD9900;
    pointer-events: none;
}
Its the changing of absolute to relative that's pushing it back on to the page. It should be hidden.

The "babbling 'brook" style being used for the forum is based on the default supplied by the developers. I'm guessing changing the display to hidden could have accessibility implications and that's the reason for the "unusual" absolute placement.

Have re-instated the absolute positioning with a twist. Hopefully this time it's actually fixed.

Who asked you? :wink:





I'll try to take a look when I've a bit more time. CSS changes are much quicker to implement.

Search should now be more function-y and less timey-outy.
