Reply to sotongeoff. Well, the Description field is very short, so doesn't allow for much detail, and only works as a summary; in most cases it would be necessary to go into more detail within the post, anyway. (Plus, if there isn't any text in the main body of the post, it looks like an error, and people are unlikely to respond.)

It would be interesting, though, to know what other forum users think - would you find it useful for the Description text to appear within the post, as well as on the list of threads? Do let us know.

If there is a consensus that it would be useful, then I can certainly ask if it would be possible!

Incidentally, everyone, here are a couple of links to our wisteria content, which you might find useful:

Hello sotongeoff. Do you mean within the actual post itself? The description is intended an optional extra to allow posters to provide a brief summary of the content of their actual post. I think in most instances the content of the description would be covered within the post itself, so it wouldn't necessarily add anything to include it again. I hope I haven't misunderstood your question!


How to give feedback about the new site

Reply to Gold1locks: I've posted a response over on the wisteria thread.

I'm afraid I've not been able to replicate the other problem, but it could be related to the previous issue with the 'View first unread post' link. The technical team will give that their attention.

Thanks for the alert!

Hello sotongeoff. This is probably because the "buds are brown" text was input into the 'Description' field of the new thread, and not the main editing box.

Reply to John Reynolds: if you did type any further text into your message, that didn't appear, do please let me know, and I can help you repost, if necessary.

Many thanks,
