How to give feedback about the new site

Ah, I didn't mean switch browswer completely, Gold1locks. Just that it might be worth attempting to change the settings, to determine if the problem you're experiencing is specific to Chrome. (Apparently the new release of Firefox, 12, is more stable!) I've referred the matter again, so hopefully we'll sort the problem soon.

Reply to sotongeoff: I'll cross my fingers, but sadly, that's about as far as my influence extends.

Reply to Gold1locks: I think this is a Chrome issue - we've had a similar problem with a few Chrome users not seeing the radio buttons in our competitions. Are you able to try changing the settings in another browser, such as Firefox, or Safari? We'll certainly look into the Chrome issue, but in the meantime, another browser might a be a quicker solution for you.

Reply to Swedboy: as per my previous reply to toonia, the technical team have advised that we will be adding the option to follow threads without posting on them. It should be appearing in a couple of months, possibly less.

Reply to toonia: thanks for the feedback. Regarding your comment about following threads, I'm pleased to report that function will be added (it won't be immediately, but in the next couple of months, I'm told).

Reply to FloBear: mmm, that's rather rum, isn't it? That will be dealt with! Thanks for the alert.

Quite so, figrat. Thanks for the update - those in the know will investigate.

New site - bugs

Hello figrat. Thanks for the update - it's good news that the image upload works for you from Safari. I'll let the team know that it seems to be an issue with IE8, and hopefully we can get it fixed.

Reply to figrat: did you see my other message relating to the problem? If you could try uploading the image from another browser than IE8, then that will help us determine if it is a browser issue. It might be worth trying in Firefox or Chrome, if that is possible. Also, are your files beneath the 1Mb file size limit for uploads? (Apologies if you've already answered this, and I'm having a brain fog!)

Many thanks,

Reply to backyardee: I'm pleased to hear that you like, and that you will be visiting more often! Do let us know if there is anything you would like to see on the site.

Reply to FloBear: thanks for the feedback regarding the avatar hover box. I'll add this to my list of questions for the techies. I feel a spreadsheet coming on! Good to hear that you find the site easy to use; particularly nice to have feedback on the new Search facility, which we were thrilled by when it was first introduced at the end of last year.

Reply to Swedboy. Do you mean that you'd like to receive email alerts when particular threads are updated? As you will have noticed, it's currently only possible if you've contributed to the thread. The easiest way to track threads on a given subject is to use the search facility at the top of each page. Once a result is returned, it is possible to filter further by content type, one of the filters being forum posts. The advantage of this method is that it would display links to all forum posts on that subject, not just one. For example, here is a search result for forum posts relating to roses:

Forum posts relating to roses

Does this help?
