    1 thing I have found is that if you press the link to the Blog, it shows an error message, but still has the sublinks in the bar. They seem to work fine.


    RM - This has been fixed..

    The 'Reply to Thread' button doesn't take you to the advanced editor but to the quick reply box at the bottom instead, is that how it should be?

    edit* sometimes it takes me to the advanced editor but mostly just the quick reply box......mostly.

    RM - Click reply once for "quick reply" then click it a second time for advanced - I think they changed how it works, just a case of getting used to it

    the new way of search is horrible. if i click on 'find all posts' by me it don't show the posts it only shows which thread i've posted in.
    and the 'advanced search' is nowhere near as good as the old one, very hard to find anything with it.

    RM - Search function will be fixed soon, just requires a time consuming re-index of all the data

    I'm struggling with the reply box. The "Quick Reply" area is very narrow and I am finding when you try and scroll down, the cursor jumps around. Also when I try to click to a particular place in the text so I can highlight an area to move it or delete it, the text suddenly moves and I realise I am highlighting the wrong bits!

    RM - Should be fixed

    The forum sometimes forces text to be squashed, margins or something??

    RM - Should be fixed now

    Starting to like this now. It seems to run slower though? Not sure if that's just my connection, pages just seem to take a while to load.

    Also, when you quote something why does it shift it half way down the post?

    RM - It may be a bit slower, but dont worry we are moving to better servers before the new season

    I will, there was a Chorus one also and another one but I can't remember what it was for. I'll let you know any I see from now on but I'm just getting the Inventnow ad at the mo, no matter how many times I refresh. Possibly time related ads, so I'll keep an eye on them this evening

    I have been creating a number of large posts lately, as I've been compiling season stats, and also posting thread links for the World Cup sticky.

    In any post, you can only use 10,000 characters. Sadly that includes making something turn bold or another colour which in my opinion should not be included in the word count.

    For example, writing "MAN UTD" takes seven spaces - one for each letter, and an additional character for the space.

    If you write it in bold it's also counting [ B ] at the start of the words, and [ / B ] at the end.

    Now what I have noticed since the website was upgraded is that the character count has gone psycho.

    If I have posted 11,000 characters and tried to save it, it will tell me that I have exceeded the amount I am allowed. In the "old days" I could delete the exact number of characters and all would be well.

    Now I have noticed that I can press "return" once after a posted thread, or delete a line, and magically the character count changes by a random amount (it could be in excess of 100 character places)! How is that possible when you only seemingly move the cursor one place?

    Please can you increase the size allowance on individual posts RM? 10,000 should be enough for most posts and today I hardly changed a post at all from one that saved perfectly fine yesterday, and it was telling me I was using 14,000 characters. ?????????????????? How??!

    It makes editing very frustrating, however the data is being counted. Please help!
