Hi Joe

In the old format I'm pretty sure on the calendar the actual day was highlighted.
Is it possible to have this back on the current calendar?

In the Good Old Days I could scroll down through the day's recent/ ollder posts

Am I missing out on something?

Captain Chaza, just click on the "New Posts" link in the navigation bar above.

Alternatively, click on the "Quick Links" drop down menu above and select "Today's Posts" from the options.

"New Posts" will give you a list of all the threads that have been updated since your last login, while "Today's Posts" will give you all the threads that have had posts added in the last 24 hours.

Hope that helps. :)

Have you tried a different screen resolution or display size? I am using my max 1,600 x 1,200 resolution but have the 'Display' set at 125% for best viewing for me...
Hi Whiskers, yes set to max resolution 1280 x 1024 pixel. Display at 100% is usually fine, but I do need to zoom in to 125%, sometimes 150%, when reading the italics in quotes.

Changing the subject, could use your opinion over on the Bicycle Helmets Kill thread, regarding a way forward, following GG's slight contretemps: https://www.aussiestockforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=14713&page=8

I thought I was alone with italics difficulties.

It is OK to fiddle with zoom in and out, but for me it is pain in butt, never had to do that before and don't have to do that with any other site, so room for improvement here for sure.

Hi Julia, my apologies for the delay in getting back to you regarding this.

I have looked into it and was hoping that it was going to be just a software setting that needed to be altered. Unfortunately it didn't end up being that simple and will require some coding, so it has been prioritised on my list of things to do and I will get to it as soon as I can.

Hi Joe

In the "Quick Links" "Subscribed Threads" list, is it possible to squeeze in the "Number of Posts "Views" information displayed in the "New Posts" and "Todays Posts" lists?

regards

nulla

Will look into this and see if it's posible.

Hi Joe

Any update on the possibility of including this information in the Subscribed Threads list?

I haven't heard back from the designer on this yet. Now that the basic design has been finished they're working on other projects and there are a bunch of modifications/improvements that I've requested that they haven't even had time to look at yet. :banghead:

Will let you know when I hear more.

Have to agree with you "Happy" ............ the italics are difficult to read when "quoting" previous posts ..... Maybe we are just getting old and the eye sight is a bit dodgier than it used to be :(

ps ... Bolded your post up and it reads a bit better when re-posting;) ..... might have to do that in future !!

Hi there Joe,

Don`t know if others have this problem, but have found that after I`ve logged on and don`t revisit the site for a while I am no longer logged on. Is there a time limit to the `log on` period? It`s just a bit of a pain.

Thanks Bf

Barney, I thought it wasn't a problem either until one of my PCs with XP went to PC heaven recently and then replaced it with a new Win7 tower (keyboard, monitor, etc all the same as previously). I had a look at ASF on it and found the italics were very difficult to read. So I now mainly log into ASF on the lap top (XP) and where the italics are OK to read.

So whether it's to do with Win7 or a combination of Win7 & a large monitor, I'm not sure, but saw the difficulties that others have mentioned.

Joe, just another little detail that will help make navigating a bit easier for those like me who tend to have a reflex action to where a button is (or usually is) rather than litterally reading them every time.

Could we have the same name button, such as 'New Posts' in the same position on both pages as Quick Links button is?

Save me going damn, wrong button again, when I get New Events instead of New Posts. :eek:

Just FYI Joe.

I just switched back to the latest version of firefox from google chrome which was crashing on me left right and centre.

I find the pages are not rendering properly in firefox :confused:

The site is still usable but not perfect in firefox for me. Running windows 7.

Hi BF, if you don't interact with the forums for 30 minutes your session expires. If you check the "Remember Me" box when you login you will remain logged in until you manually log out.

This shouldn't be too difficult. Will get onto this right away.

Hmmmmmm. That's strange because I'm also running Firefox 3.6.13 with Windows 7 and am not experiencing the issue that you mention. I wonder if a Firefox add-on could be causing the problem? Do you have any add-on's installed? If so, try uninstalling or disabling them and then see how things go.

Hi Joe
Thanks for your help with my query and the solution of using the Navigation Bar
Seems very simple and it was

Once you can read it
I have read before many complaints with your NEW colour schemes and add my discomfort

It certainly does not suit "Older Eyes"

My suggestion is to Use darker shades of blue /green
Or
Change the Background colour to Black

Those light colours only work well with a Black background

Cheers

Hi again Joe

I hope it is permitted to be honest here?

I would just like to add that I would sack your colour co-ordinator immediately for total incompetence

If a newspaper printed in those colours they would go broke in only a matter of weeks

I think you should attend to this disaster as a matter of urgency!
BOLD is also another technique often used in newspaper print

Yours faithfully
Captain Chaza

Joe, another little detail... I hadn't noticed this before, but looks like the "Last Post" column needs widening a tad... or is it my pc.

Many thanks for the feedback Captain_Chaza. I am considering changing a couple of the colours but have not made any definite decisions yet. Is there any colour combination in particular that you find hard to read?

Hi Whiskers, this is definitely on the to-do list and will be fixed as soon as the designer manages to get around to working on ASF again. They keep telling me how swamped with work they are so it may take a little time for them to get to it.
