Forum Software Upgrade

I've updated the forum software to the latest version (1.3) of Xenforo.

This is mostly fairly minor changes and fixes (like, rotated iPhone photos will work now). The most notable one is the new multiquote, which allows you to select multiple posts to be quoted, across multiple threads, and then insert them all into one reply.

let me know if you notice any problems.

is there a way to link to a specific post from another thread? in case others want to comment on it? or do I just have to keep track of the post #s and add a link to that particular page myself? like if I only quote half of georges post from another thread and they want to see the whole post, how do they find it in a long thread?

Two ways:

  • If you click on the arrow next to "said:" in the quote it will take you to that post
  • Click on the post number in a post, and you get a link to the post.

Mick, The Post Number is not visible on the IPhone . . . is there a way to overcome this discrepancy??

It's visible in landscape. Turn your phone sideways.

Also you can copy the link from the date.

Hmmm. . . . When I rotate my phone to landscape mode the Post numbers do not appear only the "+ Quote" and "Reply" options are visible . . . . . what date are you referring . . . on the present page I only see "13 Mimutes Ago"

In your example the number appears on the same line as all other options. . . . in my phone image landscape mode the Quote and Reply are on the second or even third line . . . depending on the size of the Time Status message. . .

Can you post a screenshot? Press home and peer to snap it. Then upload file. Choose file. Existing.

Mine has extra admin stuff. But the number is there.

One more change is the editor toolbar now has some options grouped under a new "Insert" button.
