I just clicked to like the post you mentioned, Frank. It went though OK and shows the like at the bottom left of that post.

The Like process is a little more tricky than it needs to be. You click on the Like button within the post. Then another page shows up and you have to click the Like button on that page as well to actually make it count. If you don't click on the second Like button, then the first one doesn't count. Yes, it's redundant and too complicated. Hopefully, they'll simplify that to one click in the next upgrade or patch.

“Liking” worked for me, cool feature! I’ve sadly found myself thinking of liking posts on here for a split second like I was on one of the FB groups so that’ll work 😅


Have we always been able to completely delete comments?

You have always been able to delete or modify any comment, as long as it was less than 10 hours old.

Click on the "Like" button on the lower right corner of the post message box. Sorry, you can't like your own post. wink

Yes, Paul, there should be an improvement in speed and stability. Much of the forum operating code has been optimized to have fewer lines and the server php software has been revised to the latest version.

A new feature has been activated to enable viewing photos attached to posts in their full size.

Click on a photo within a post.
It will pop up in a "lightbox" that you can rotate with the circle-arrow icon.
There is now a new icon with a down-arrow to indicate download. This is handled differently on different browsers.
If you get a choice, indicate that you'd like to see it using your browser.
Then it will display in the full size that it was after it was uploaded, unless it is larger than your screen size.

After the recent upgrade, there is now a drop-down menu in the upper right corner of each post.
Click on the little down-arrow icon next to the post number.
