    The full text search index has been rebuilt. All content is now available to the Forums search engine. Also, we've tried to improve the truncation and breaks in the Today's Posts and New Posts pages. We're trying to set off the signature block with a different background and perhaps smaller font. Stay tuned. As somebody else mentioned, the display of signatures can be turned off completely in your Settings.

    I have a couple of more suggestions for the site, don't know how much difficulty is involved.
    1. the location header at the top (Forum=>JLC-Online Peer-to-Peer=>Trade Talk=>New Forum Format) needs to be a bit bigger, it kind of gets lost at the current point size.
    2. maybe you could make the navigation through pictures have additional function with the arrow keys. Since most of the pics posted are of different size, the "NEXT" button is always moving and many times you kick yourself out of the pictures and have to click back in. I do like that one can post more pictures now, but that little bit of keyboard functionality would go a long way.

    I'd say after a little getting used to, that overall the changes have positive.

    I agree....

    but for me its a lot harder to read. Its better as Admin posted earlier about the truncation of the page. I still have to increase the font with my scroll wheel mouse (my choice) at different settings for different pages to make it comfortable for me. I increase on other sites too but can leave it alone indefinitely. It has cut down on my experience here and I've cut back reading posts probably by half.

    Admin,
    ++Nice improvements, faster......thanks.

    Couple things:
    Paper clip icon over page number sometimes intereferes with page selection. (though can be done if careful)

    And, GMT color grey hard to see.........maybe white would be better?

    Thanks,
    Charlie

    When you click the new posts icon, the number of replies and views of each thread are no longer displayed. I always found this information helpful in keeping up with "hot" topics. Can it be restored?

    Didn't read all posts to see if this covered - on iPhone 3GS, the jump to Forum scroll is jerky and will not scroll down past the Electric Shop

    NW:

    I think I reported earlier that it's jerky on Android, very difficult to control and not worth going there, at least the last time I tried.

    Yep! It's very difficult to navigate on the iPhone. I need to page back to the community page to move to a different forum page....an example would be from trade talk to finish carp.

    An iDevice is an iPhone, iPad, iPod.........................

    Did you log into the forum when you tried to post from your iPad? It does not matter if your computer is logged on all the time, you must log in on each device you want to post to the forum from. You can view it without logging in, but you cannot post.

    Ted, I can post from my iPhone. Actually I usually post from my iPhone as I'm so fricken busy these days. You need to double click on the reply tab as it seems a little sluggish.
