Yusuf, there has been no change to the forum software at all except for the header and footer with the new look

Cool. It must be an issue with the way my machines are set up. To see posts that were commented on today, I have to scroll through the forum and check for myself. It really is strange though, as that should only have happened if there was a change in the software...

Nolan, check this page as an example:
http://www.sagoingtonz.co.nz/forum/index.php/board,39.0.html

Basically, what it looks like is at the end of the topic name, there is a little blue box with a question mark on my ipad...I am not sure if it is an icon missing because of Mac, or if the question marks is an icon? There is one at the end of each topic name.

Hope this helps :)
THIS journey is worth every bit of blood and tears...

Nolan, i think I know whats happening differently.
When opening the website, the first this we see is member home with a section for latest forum posts.
Int he past it would show us all topics, new and those that recently had responses.
It currently only shows new topics.
I can't be the only person experiencing this?

okay Yusuf go check on the home page now. I have added a new tab to the news feeds. You can now initially see the last 5 posts on the forum, plus there is a new tab showing the last 5 posts / articles that have been added to the site, along with the news news feeds  O0

Angeline - I have checked the forum on my iPad and all looks fine to me. Can you maybe take a photo of your screen then post it here so I can see what you are seeing please.
To take a photo of your screen on the iPad:
  • Press and hold the menu button (the round button on the front of the iPad).
  • While the menu button is held down, press the power/lock button (the switch on the top edge of the device).
  • The photo will now be in your camera roll.
  • reply here, and add the photo as an attachment

That is much nicer Nolan, Thank You.
There is a minor flaw there, but its not a big deal. It seems that multiple replies to the same post are each added to the new panel. I have included an attachment. You will notice that there are 3 entries for the Pistorius topic.
I hope am not finding fault unnecessarily, but just wondering if that is effective. O0
