Feedback is critical at this point, so please post and let me know if you are experiencing any issues... or just to say hello.

Morning Joe. Yes I am wondering how to get the most recent post in a thread at the top of the page please.

Please, whatever your response to the new forum software, be mindful of the effort Joe has put in all last night and from early this morning. There will be quite a few issues that need fixing, and threads like this are great for collecting them so they can be actioned. Just remember Joe is probably frazzled so be polite and supportive - not everything will get fixed or addressed instantly!

"Hello" ;)

Thanks Joe,
I've only been browsing so far (still half asleep at 6am :D) but everything looks great.
I know it's been a mammoth task, and I don't know how you did it.
Congratz!

Try again, it seems to be working now.
Where you have a list like this,

ASF List.png
click on the name in the left column, or on the date below the name of the last poster.
The former displays the thread newest on top, the latter the other way around.
(At least that's how it works with my current settings.)
Bingo!

Hello Joe!
I'm still looking around on my android.
I have noticed also that the thread i click on opens from the very first post.
The mobile version looks a little different/cut down from pixels picture above.
Well done - by the way! I like the look of the new software.

I just want everyone to know that I am prepared to move heaven and Earth to get this new software configured so that it serves the needs of as many ASF users as possible.

I understand that it takes a while to get used to doing things differently, but I have no doubt at all that once everyone has a chance to explore the software and get used to where things are it will be relatively easy to adapt to.

Please keep posting and let me know of any issues or problems you are experiencing and I will do my best to address them.

I've figured this out.
Click on the date/time of the last post

Great effort Joe. Hope you get some well deserved rest. I like the LIKE button!!

Just noticed a minor bug.

On the hope page under the tab "Latest Replies"... if I click the "Go to latest unread" link it doesn't take me there. It simply reloads the home page.

I had that too;
It's because the new software doesn't know which posts you've "read" in the old software.
I went to the Forums tab on top and marked all forums as read. From that time onward, I only see posts that have come in new - the way it should be.

Same with me.

I like the look though!

This has now been fixed. :)
Thanks Joe.

Also another comment.

I noted that there's a description under the member's handle... and most people seems to be "well-known member", even for some with <100 posts. What determines that? I think something like 1000 posts might better qualify for well-known?

Also noticed that Pixel's description is "short- to medium-term trader"... so I am guessing there's a way to customise this for yourself.
