All looking good for me on Windows PC.

Two remaining problems on iPad:
1: Log-out Username illegible (appears dark green on deep green)
2: Go to QuickLinks > New Posts . . . For each new post listed "....in xxxxxxxxxxx" appears as yellow on light or very light buff. Cannot read.

Above not a problem for Windows PC.

Lots of work, good job.
Chris

Have just run CCleaner and the stripes have gone...

At this point I must say that it seems much less of an upgrade than a change. Obviously wip.
The internet Bridge club I use has had to produce a Java App, as browsers all are abandoning Java - clumsier, less convenient but classified as "progress"....

One thing still missing is the "Open New Posts" or was it "Jump to New Posts" on the Board Index page

Nice to see it wider .......

In another implementation of this software that I frequent they have a drag and drop facility activated for images. This is much easier than using an image hosting site. Just an observation.

iPad problems remain, even after clearing cache, plus an iPad restart.
Blue stripes across all my previous posts (however old) now re-appeared.

I didn't clear all my cache, just hit F5 and the online stripes disappeared, just like that!

With regard to the icon at the extreme left of the thread list, I know that if it's red it contains unread posts, if blue, it doesn't. The star on the icon means you have contributed to the thread, but what does it mean if it is scrolling up (either read or unread)?

Is it something to do with the number of posts?

I think it's a hot / popular topic. It appears to be on threads that are current and with multiple pages of posts.

Good morning maureenscot,
FYI Some Browsers only do Selective Cache clearing so you need to get to the area that Clears Everything for the Cache.
Refresh/Restart Browser and you will be good to go.

As pointed out a F5 will do it as well

:D

Shift F5 is a better bet :)

Interesting........had the Crime Scene tape on my FireFox Browser this morning on a system(xubuntu) that I had not used for a few days and F5 cleared it.
