philippa smith2 - Nora wasn’t being evasive. The answer at the moment is that we don’t yet know - we need to fix the outstanding design issues and look into notifications and the ‘first unread post’ function first. We’ve taken on board all of those comments from users who are missing the hover function - at present 'we haven't ruled it out' is all I can tell you.
Lyn - we’re aware of the bug and it will be fixed as soon as possible
Bonsai-Marc - I think we’ve made a bit more than a slight improvement over the last week . Vertical space on the listing pages has been reduced by 40 per cent. Since last week we've arrived at a point where spacing is causing irritation for some users, rather than rage for most - we are looking at whether we can make further reductions.
Firecracker - Thanks for this - I’m glad you like the changes
SwissSue - thanks for the feedback and comments on Last Unread Post and hover function noted
love gardens and KT53 - noted, please see comments on this subject above
Tetley - restoration of pinch and zoom functionality for mobile devices will be looked at shortly, so please bear with us on this. On desktops it’s possible to right-click to open the image in a new tab
hogweed - we wouldn’t recommend using Internet Explorer to view the site - Microsoft no longer maintain it and it’s likely to deliver an inconsistent experience of many website, not just ours. I suggest trying another browser such as Chrome or Firefox and keeping it updated
Andy Leeds - the search facility on the site is something that needs some ‘attention’ generally (and that’s putting it diplomatically). We’re working on a substantial refresh of other areas of the site (which will appear in the not very distant future) but it’s something that will need to be addressed.
Lantana - sorry that you’re having trouble. The edit function works for five minutes after making the post. Are you attempting to use it within that time? If so, and you’re still having trouble please let Nora know and she’ll follow up with you on this on Monday, when she’s in the office. Likewise, on the difficulty with the replies.
