    Did the @ function work for you or did you just accidentally stumble into this forum?

    Noticed that too and it only seems to happen if the original post is on the same page that you are on. If the original post is on a prior page it works the same as it always did.

    The workaround that I am using is to right-click on the link and select Open Link in New Tab. Then I just close the tab I am in and I am at the original post. It works regardless of whatever page the original is on.

    Speaking of notifications, cant this software do push notifications so we can see # of alerts without having to open the app?

    Just for those not aware....instead of scrolling back to the top of each page, you can get there more quickly if you are at the bottom of the page and click "TOP"..which is in the lower right corner next to the orange RSS feed button. Swoops ya back up. Give your finger a rest by pushing that instead. :)

    I'm not entirely sure if this is a Xenforo issue or perhaps a mod one, but maybe a dozen times now I've seen someone listed as banned still online and typing responses and suchlike. As of the moment I'm typing this
    astr591
    is listed as such but is still posting away. And I don't mean to single him out; I've seen this happen to a number of posters here. It's a bit puzzling. Any insight into this?

    Hello Stuart Wolfe.

    How are you doing?

    When a member is banned here a line will strike through their name. That is designed by the system. The banned tag under their name is from a change in their user group status. The system will automatically unban a member when their banned time expires. The line through their name will be removed but the 'Banned' tag remains. I have to manually update that status. When I log in and am able I update the user group to reflect their current status. Im not here the exact times these bans expire so you may see 'Banned' under their names when in reality their ban was served.
    I try my best to catch up with the user groups. The member mentioned has had their status updated now.
    I hope I explained it well.

    The search function does not seem to be working. Advance search using a term and a poster name and it does nothing not even a results not found.

    Also are new threads by members now prohibited here, I was going to start one about searches. Says I don't have high enough privileges or something.

    There's a rule for the the two top forums that I don't understand why it doesn't cover the entire board:


    Why is paywall content acceptable for all the other forums? Most people don't pay subscriptions to online publications. It's frustrating when OPs post articles behind paywalls. Can it not be made that paywall articles may not be posted unless they're fully quoted? Or just not posted at all? Makes no sense otherwise.

    How do you reverse the default post order...

    ... so that more recent replies...

    ... are listed first?

    Same here or long press on my tablet to bring up a new tab. Problem is if you are going back multiple messages you get lots of tabs open youvthen have to go back and close.

    OK a weird thing I've been noticing for a couple of months
    Samsung Tab Pro 10.1
    Android 4.4.2
    Chrome Browser

    Sometimes my touch position gets offset. Seems to be verticle more that horizontal. IOW I touch the Post Reply button but it thinks I am touching above that in the text box. I have to touch about 1/2" below the post button and then you see it darken like it is being touched and the post will post. If it is occuring it will also affect touching within the text box to get the cursor where I want it I have to touch below the spot somewhere. It seems to clear after a screen refresh or the post is made and is just a temp thing. I don't see this in other websites or other apps. Just here.

    Any ideas?

    Last night when I was trying to do s Reply using Win 7 the quote did not appear as usual. Finally after several attempts I was able to find the quote, but lower on my screen, with two others even lower. Seems normal tonight but your issue seems slightly similar.

    Something new I have been noticing in that in my Alerts if I click on a listed post it doesn't take me back to that post. At fist I was thinking that post must have been deleted but if I try a couple of times if finally takes me to the correct post.

    Am I the only one who is still having these issues? I'm constantly scrolling through active topics to see if there are new posts in threads I'm participating in. The notifications are so random for me, and I almost never get notifications after the first day.

    Scrolled through the first 5 pages of new posts, and found new posts in six threads I'm active in.
