    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.
