    I've got a nice 27" monitor but the forum only takes up the centre section leaving about 5" of spare screen at each side, is this because it's set up for mobile screens or can it be changed? Every forum or internet page I've ever used takes up the whole screen apart from this one.

    To be honest, I suspected that there was a financial problem & this was a cheaper option.

    I've got used to it and don't find it slow. I think any change is a pain because you keep trying to do things the old way I certainly dbut that's just force of habit.

    As others have said it would really help to present posts in descending order (newest first).

    btw: In this version you can use Office type shortcuts on text i.e.:
    Highlight text then Ctrl+B for Bold on/off; Ctrl+I for Italics; Ctrl + C for Copy Ctrl + V for Paste

    From what I can remember of the 'Old Site', there was a 'button' for Today's Posts. I always use New Posts but, if I look at something, and then go away, and then later consider that I may have something to add to a current topic previously viewed, then the option is not there.

    The 'work around' is to go Members > Recent Activity, but that is somewhat tedious.

    How do I send a PM on this new forum software?

    I can see they are now called 'conversations', I can type one & preview it but I'm buggered if I can see a send button.

    Dave,
    strange, but that's exactly as mine presents! I view the forum on my iPhone 6. It may be down to settings selected...
    I do have trouble with 'new posts' often the listing isn't accurate or recent posts are not there?

    I'm not the best at this stuff.
