Now then folks.  I`ve seen quite a few comments about how you return back to the forum menu after posting replies on a topic then have to navigate your way back again.

Well here`s how to prevent that.

When you post your reply, open the Attachments and other options area by click on the "+" symbol.

Then select the "Return to this Topic Option", et voila, when you post you return to the actual thread you posted on.

Image below shows the options you need to select outlined in red

You should be able to set this as a default option.  Check out your profile.....under "Forum profile", "look and layout"

When I sign up to a new forum I usually head towards the profile section sooner rather than later. I look at all the options shown and choose what suits me. Since we are all on a new forum now... 8)

Well thanks for the guide - I used it and it works !!!!

Not all things are obvious to all people. Whilst I'd gone into PROFILE and changed my password and some other details, I wasn't aware of all these subsections.

I never (well hardly) read the instructions - last resort - but, then again, there weren't any until now for me to ignore!

Feeling a lot happier now!

While the genius is burning brightly is there a way to stop the cookies acceptance from coming up every time you open the site? Most forums only show it when you log in but not when the pc remembered login happens. GSC seems to count both as a full login and trying to hit that tiny OK on the phone means I've seen the more details page far too often ;)

At least two others of us are having this problem, Ross and myself. It does it on both my 'puters, so I suspect there are many more members out there who are saying nowt.

Ditto..
Was OK for a time..
Now appears each time I logon to the Forum, even if it is same day as I tend to set it to 'one hour'.

Winders 7 and IE 11 if that helps?

My login is set 'forever' - and, if I log out and back in again, I just type in my user name (my password is saved) and don't have any cookie problems or pop-ups. The latter because I use the ad blocker suggested on this Forum.

Even though I frequently clean the files there still isn't a problem.

I use XP and Firefox, with Avast for security.

I do not know whether it is something 'latent' from a previous version of IE, a change to the way cookies are generated/detected by the forum software, or what..
Just have to click 'OK' a few times a day.. Fairly easy on a PC, but I can see it could be awkward on a smartphone.

Why not try setting your log-in duration to "Forever" - it allows me to log in and out without any problems. I stopped using IE a few years ago as I was told Firefox would make better use of the low Broadband speed I suffer sometimes.

But I'll say this - I haven't a clue otherwise!

Paranoia probably!! ;)

I do not tend to log in to anywhere 'forever'. - Old habits die hard.. Older multi-user systems sometimes did not kill sessions properly. This meant you could connect to said systems, and occasionally get someone else's session.

I'm assured by 'one who knows' that it is a forum software problem.

The only problem really is it`s right next to the `learn more` button and in a smart phone screen its very difficult to hit tiny buttons that close together accurately.
I can`t seem to get the recent posts view on the mobile version so tend to use the full forum.
