It has occurred to me that it would be nice for you to have a way to suggest to me changes to the forum or additions to the website. I may not be able to do them, but I will certainly consider whatever you suggest, so please let me know what changes or additions you'd like to see. Just reply in this topic/thread.
And, since there are soooooo many things needing to be done, I've created a spreadsheet with which to keep track of them. I'm embedding it here so we all can see what I have so far: (Note to self: This file is called Forum And Website Upgrades and is in Ford Trucks/Website/Forum And Website Upgrades folder.)
But, if you do as I outlined above and click the link below "Last Post" you will be taken to the latest post in any given thread/topic. You may need to scroll up a bit to find the last post you've read, but you'll be starting at the bottom instead of the top.
I'm sure I'm missing something, so please try me again.
If you click on Topic View you should get this page. And if you click on the indicated link you should go to the last post. But if it doesn’t work the please tell me what hardware and software you are using.
Thanks for the followup. And, glad it works for you.
Gary this is a key feature that is extremely useful, yet not intuitive at all until it is pointed out. I don't know what we can do to advertise this feature, but obviously new users are still going through a lot of extra navigation steps because they don't know... maybe insert the tip in their email notice of membership approval?

Jonathan - That's a good idea! I really need to write up a blurb on how the membership process works, and I could include that in there. Or, maybe I should have two files, one that explains how the process works and one that gives tips on using the forum. After all, I am sending them two different emails so why not tailor the message?
I was trying to find the right place to post this and this looks as good as any place.
When on my phone I am logged in as I see some posts marked as read and it has at the top "FuzzFace2".
The issue is when I want to post a reply I type out the reply and when I hit send a log in screen pops up.
Is that normal for this site or am I special and it's just me?
You are special. And Bill is special. And sometimes I'm special. And there are probably others that are sometimes special. But we can't seem to find a common denominator with why it happens some times and not others.
So, with you does it only happen when you are on your phone? Have you noticed anything else that might help?
Dave - Sorry for the slow reply. But, you may help us solve this problem if you can replicate the problem.
First, what phone are you using, what OS, and what browser? Next, have you tried another browser?
With that info, and the fact that it is an every time thing, I'll go to Nabble and see if they can help.
Don't be sorry on the reply time there are more important things than this.
Ok lets see if I can get this and don't laugh.
Phone - Samsung 4G it works (see browser info)
OS - Android v5.0.1
Browser - Chrome v62.0.3202.84
Change browser? I don't like change LOL........I will get it a try and report back.
Is there setting on your admin control to allow the download of a picture in a thread?
There's a lot of good references to problems I haven't (yet) personally encountered, and I'd like to save some of the images for review on my computer vs having to search the various threads down the road when I may not remember the original subject topic..
I hate to admit it, but I'd even like to recapture some of my images singe i often delete the original file image on my phone after I post it.
I can always snag a screen shot, but a direct download would be a better quality and save some steps.
