The red icon used to take you to the last unread post in the thread. Now you can do that either by clicking on the very small square to the right of the icon or on the similar icon next to the last posters name. This is just about possible to do on a computer screen, but on a phone or small tablet it is almost impossible.

No problems using the site on PC or mobile phone (Android/Chrome), but on Chromebook it's a bit of a mess. Anybody else using Chrome OS having problems / been able to test it?
Two main problems: all the topics in the index are covered with little A.com logos; all the drop down menus are open and have to be closed individually in order to read topics without them obscuring the text.

Quite agree with that, we have two chromebooks and the same in both...early days. Good luck management, you are soooo brave!

Glad to see the issues on Chrome OS appear to have been resolved. Just wondering why I'm back to not receiving e-mail notifications for threads I'm subscribed to. Had this problem before & changed from my Hotmail account to Gmail, which resolved it, but now Gmail isn't getting them either (and yes, I've checked the spam folder!)

Hi Admin,
A Member has reported that the Forum Forgotten Password Link gives a 404 Not found error

I get the same result.

Gerry might enlighten us how he got it work............

Hmm!
Very strange.
Tried it again
Logged out
Went to login screen
Clicked " forgot my password"
Entered email address
Got an email with a link to reset password
Clicked the link and got "Error 404"
So now not working for me either.
Cheers
