As you may have noticed, the main forum page has now been collapsed; you can view the last post made by category; you can add a quick reply; when you log in via the forum, you are returned to the forum, not the main homepage.

    I go away for an hour and you make the single BEST change so far.

    Thanks from the heart of my bottom.

    there is only one thing missing now...

    and thats to change where it says

    Bikeradar Forum Index -> Road Beginners
    to
    Bikeradar Forum Index -> Road -> Road Beginners

    that would make the forum perfect in my opinion

    You've made the new forum as easy to use as the old one. Congratulations? :?

    Aye, should have the full path to click on instead of having to go back out of MTB > Off Topic, just to go into sat MTB > rides.

    Nice one, like the 'last post by category' and the 'view last post' button now works in Firefox too.

    It did take a very long time to do, but you are getting there.

    Was just about to suggest the very same, good job I read this thread before starting my own!

    I agree, these are fine developments. Now, grasp the nettle and collapse 'Race', 'Pharmacy' and 'Pro Talk' into the one subject as it should be...

  • How about a link to "View My Posts" to save having to search for them - or have I missed something ?

    Still not perfect though, I would like to set road as my default so that it is always open and all the others are closed when I log in or just return to the forum homepage. And I would like to be able to click on the headers to open rather than have to click the small + to open the road forum. When I open one forum I would like the others to automatically collapse in order to keep things neat.

    Thanks.

    We'd like that too, but it turns out not to be trivial in this forum environment. I gather it's being worked on.

    A very reasonable request that I've just added to the pile.

    It does. Open 'Road' then open 'MTB' and you'll see 'Road' is now collapsed.

    And perhaps Cycling+ Office, MBUK Office, WMB Office should now be here under Bike Radar Office. Not under Road/Mountain Bike...

    what about implementing this:
    Bikeradar Forum Index -> Road Beginners
    to
    Bikeradar Forum Index -> Road -> Road Beginners

    it cant be that hard to just edit the code slightly (in fact im sure its not!)!? it just keeps getting overlooked
  • spasypaddy

    it's been requested, but I think for this round of changes the dev team went for big stuff (like the quick reply box) rather than smaller tweaks.

    Also, another cycling forum that will remain nameless (rhymes with Michael Hat would be small clue though) has really cool menus that slide out at you, how come there are none of these here?

    cheers but its such a small bit of coding that it would take all of 2 minutes to implement!
