    just wondering if it's possible with the new forum software to have these running for longer than the two days that it seems to be now, maybe for a week or so..
    am thinking of those people, and myself of course, who may not have internet access when we're away travelling or on a site or area with no signal, to be able to catch up better with topics and threads that may be of interest to them..
    not all of us have dongles and gadgets to get the internet easily when away from home and maybe rely on their mobiles for internet..

    If you hover over the forums option on the main menu at the top. A drop down will appear. At the bottom is a "New Posts" option. This will show ALL posts since you were last on.
    The Latest Posts on the top menu shows a certain range of the most recent posts to give people a look like the old forum did.

    I will have a chat with Jim later on how to make these two options a bit clearer if possible.

    sorry to be a pain in the arse, just tried what you said, but on an ipad you can't hover and can't get the drop down box, unless i'm doing something wrong, will keep trying..

    The thumbs up smiley is the 5th one in. (y)(y)(y) or you can do a set of brackets with a y in it ( y ) (take out the spaces)
