When you click on the 'View new posts' link ... and then click on a thread, it takes you to the first post on the first page instead of the latest post on the last page


Hold on a minute, at least make your complaints valid mate. This again is 'User Error'

surely if its a NEW POST then you would want to read if from the beginning instead of wading in at the end and posting something without understanding the whole 'feel' of the post.

Improvement 'DENIED'

Love the old but new Kick Off Association graphic and the forum looks very nice. I appreciate there's been lots going on behind the scenes and the forum is much more stable etc. and the fact that you can embed YouTube video's makes it all worthwhile. A load of stuff has been added which I'l never understand so many thanks!

Regarding the viewing, mine are the same that others have brought up such as...my brain cant process the poster behind on the right hand side. Also, Iv come to expect certain avatar sizes and indeed certain avatars of different posters, but its all gone askew now. Also, I seem to have a hard time finding out who has posted what...

But most of all, its great that a new revamped KOA has been made live on the net! Its habit now to check out the KOA when I go on the net and I was clicking it all weekend in the vain hope it would be back online hehe. Good stuff guys. Glad to see you havent dispensed the KOA logo as well!

Just noticed that smileys are inserted at the cursor's position :) rather than awkwardly at the end of the post (as was previously) :roll: !

Nice one!

Pete mate I have looked into the 'focus' issue around the text box.

I think it does focus on the box eventually but probably whilst the page is loading the focus moves.

I think this would annoy me also if it was happening, so I will keep my eye on it and if it 'isn't focussing on the text box I will see what I can do to sort it out.

I had forgotten to reply to this issue in an earlier post you made, sorry.

Pete,

I agree with your issue, it would seem whilst your 'page' tries to locate the text box, and the mouse cursor is located over it it still required a click before you start typing.

I will investigate a fix (mainly because this is now annoying me as well!!! :) )

M


UPDATE:

I have found a potential fix which I will have to apply from home tonight (working till 9pm so may not do it this evening)

Can't promise anything but it may improve the issue.

Nah to be honest its a pain, and there seems to be a few people complaining about it in the 'community' so no worries.

Apparently its a problem with IE rather than Firefox but I don't believe that as I am sure I noticed it at home on FF the other night!

Anyway I will see if this 'fix' does what its supposed to and at least thats one more issue signed off :)
