Suggestions and questions

It's probably better to have one topic for this than peppering every General topic with ideas, particularly as this forum/site has only just been recently launched on the public and suggestions are likely to be forthcoming fairly regularly.  

Is it possible to have a "go to Top" button at the bottom of the pages?

Can the default font size for typing a new topic be increased for those with diminishing eyesight? It looks like it's 10 or 11 px at the moment, 12 or 13 would be better the size of Heading 2 but without the bolding, perhaps?

In the meantime...images don't work.sad

PS The image above wasn't there when I originally wrote the post, since Julian's fixed the formatting, the image is now there.

OK loving this, will have a natter with the guys as you have a number of good points and as for the smiley faces I tried that and was so disappointed they didnt work, I know sad.  Please keep posting suggestions as this site is for all of us and we want it to work X

Hopefully the smiley face, will appear, if it does I will explain.

So for smileys, under the input box you will see Text Format, change that from Filtered HTML to Full HTML, that will then allow the display of smileys.  It should work for images as well, but currently it looks like images have to be uploaded to BI first, I will ask Julian to check.  yes

Can we have the  most recent at the top

Hi Bretonbuild, the latest 5 of both classifieds and forum postings are shown on the front page.  We will ask Julian if he can do this for us all.  He is keeping an eye on this thread as well smiley

Under Text format I only have Filtered HTML or Plain text as options, no Full HTML. sad

Hi HL

Oh, I will have a word with Julian, assumed everyone had the same on that!  Hopefully a simple change.

Added the image tags to the filtered HTML option.... smileys etc. are images so they now work too cheeky

Well now I look like an idiot laugh my original post said images don't work and, lo and behold, there's now an image in it! Thanks, Julian (I presume you're wattj?)

wattj

No problem. Everything that was entered, was stored. However, the output was filtered. When I added images to be allowed through the filter, everything magically appeared. angel

Is there going to be the ability to PM members?

Hasta Lavista

When I clicked on the link in my profile for the Personal contact form I got this: 

Access denied

You are not authorized to access this page

And while I'm here and it occurs to me, there is nothing at all at the top of the page to show that I am connected - perhaps the My account and Log out links at the bottom of the page could be positioned on the right of the horizontal menu at the top?

There are other layout hiccups, if there is a contact for Julian direct, that would be preferable to blocking up this thread with large photos of the hiccups.

Have passed this on, although Julian has said he will look at this post daily.  Mind you being so warm has probably gone to the beach laugh

Hi Hasta

Julian is on the beach today, lucky sod.  DM should be there, the access levels need refining, so hopefully that is an easy win.  It tells me I am logged in as Richard, it shows on a bar at the top of the page for me, but that might be because of my access to the site, so another one for Julian I am afraid. 

I don't know without that how you would be able to log out without that!

Please keep your comments coming, they are really helpful.

This is what I've got at the very bottom of the page, yours may be different due, as you say, to access privileges.

By the way, to add a photo from my computer is not straightforward at all; when I click on the Image option I get the below.

And when I click on Browse server I get this

and to upload from my computer I have to click Upload, top left, which gives me this

following which I choose Choisir un fichier, select the photo, click Upload and it gets uploaded into the Root directory (the photo before the one above), from where I have to double-click the photo I want or highlight it and choose Insert file. Not simple, but at least there is the option to add photos, so can't really complain.

Hi HL

That is a very long way round, the small image I put on was a simple cut and paste, using the snip tool.  The root directory is very long winded, I will get that flagged up as it would be far better if it would upload from the persons own computer etc.

Hasta Lavista

WelI, I tried copy/paste with the snipping tool and for me it doesn't work. sad
