Hi DB,

Great looking new forum, thank you. First question, most probably of many. There was a button at the top of the page of a trip report called "next topic". When one clicked on the button it took you to the next unread trip report. It seems to be missing? :hmz:

It took me a while to find that extra little box at the bottom ... it's definitely NOT intuitive IMO, since you have to first go to that little box and "accept" the file before it is added to the post. So it's not simply drag-and-drop since there are two steps to the process. Perhaps a tutorial will help others? I only found that box where the files are placed by chance -- after I'd tried to drag-and-drop several times and wondered why the file wasn't appearing in my post :wall: :whistle:

Also irritating that I can't edit my post above, but my quoting DB's post makes no sense if the drag-and-drop pix are displayed in the quoted post. Can that be fixed?

(I suppose that no editing allowed is part of the "big brother" policy of not allowing edits in certain forums. I find this VERY irritating!)

Foxy, yes, it is a setting we have had for a while - one we were forced to take thanks to forum members who were causing havoc here and posting posts to whip up emotions, and then delete the content of their post.

All in an effort to keep the forums a pleasant place to visit for all the members. But we can have a look into lifting the lock onto this forum now :thumbs_up:
