    Cheers, I'm sure many will find that useful.

    I hate it when a software update moves things about in the User Interface, for no good reason other than 'it's a new look for a new version'.

      I have noticed that the 'next page/ last page' buttons do not work at the bottom if the page but do work at the top?

      The reply edior is still being stupid in mobile mode, it keeps changing words that have already been accepted.
      I call it 'capricious text' (Opposite of predictive text, it changes it after you have typed).

      I belive that this us a known problem with vb5 mobile.
      if I view it on an iPad Pro and start selecting text with arrow keys in a quoted reply it jumps me to the bottom/top of the page. I've given up reading on it for now as it's driving me nuts.

            Well that would tie in with your new Avatar/Profile picture.


              I've noticed another glitch with the new forum software.

              It's a glitch that I've seen before in vB4, and as I recall there was a patch on the vB website to cure it.

              Occasionally when making a post the last word on a line gets posted twice.
              It seems that when the editor software puts a 'soft' linebreak in the typed text it also repeats the word.

              You don't see this in the editor, it only shows when you actually make the post.

              I've noticed it a few times with the new software here, one example-
              If you look at that on the desktop site the word 'extension' is repeated at the end of the first line and the start of the second.
              (On my phone with a smaller screen it shows twice at the start of the third line).

              At it's worst, on a different site, I've seen in the past where it did this for every line of a long post.

              PS. you may come across the suggestion on the vB forums that this is a browser display issue, it is not a browser display issue.
              If you examine the page source code you see that the word is repeated in the source code.
              (So the word will show twice in any browser that you use).

              PPS. On the mobile version the 'next page' buttons are still not working at the bottom of the page.

                Anybody else having a problem with this site on Android?

                The standard browser will not connect to it, you get a "not secure site" message.

                I've put Firefox on the phone and that will connect.
                But I'm not keen on Firefox for android, it's nowhere near as good...

                I'm working on Firefox for android and have a few addons installed which has speeded things up.

                Might even make it the default if I can get it quicker than the standard browser.

                This one's much older than that, Android 4.1.2 on a Galaxy S3 mini.

                It just seems odd that the standard Android browser can't connect to here because its "not secure" when other browsers have no problem.
                I also have no problem connecting to other fora from the standard Android...

                Hi everyone,

                I have had a tenant in my property since novemeber 2013 on a assured shorthold tenanancy.

                She’s payed 1100 PCM since then with 1100 deposit. I served her a section 13 notice around 12 months ago as all the other apartments are rented for 1300 PCM. She flatly...

                That's a good offer by moderator2.

                Personally, where I moderate I also have email notification of moderated posts turned off.
                There are just too many, which would swamp your email inbox.

                I do check everyday there by logging into the moderator control panel and looking...

                If people see a message that their post has been sent for moderation then please send me a PM and I will then receive an email notification. I do not receive notifications of moderated posts automatically, and would not want to since many moderated posts really are spam. Remember that the action to...

                I've used and written systems to detect spam, it is possible to make systems user friendly without compromising the security model. Though no system is 100% secure there is a level of tolerance
