It is a bit bright, but it'll do until we can settle on a final theme that everyone (or most people) likes.

I agree. Lime green was a bit too much (and doesn't do anything for secret browsing at work).

I do like this one, much easier to read than all the blue.

No big deal, but would it be possible to have that pop up box when a new PM is received?

I think that's something that each user configures themselves, Cat. You should find the option in your User Profile. If not, get back to me and I'll see what I can do.

I'm not being picky but I got the following message when I was posting on the forum

"A new message has just been added while you write it your."

ooh - I got that on DL too - it just lets you see whether you want to modify your response in the light of the response that was posted while you were writing! I think it a great feature!

I'm guessing your point is not what the message means, more about how grammatically crap it is. Is that correct?

Yes. Sadly our host's native tongue is not English, so I think there are a few unintentionally humorous messages in there.

I thought one of those Indonesian Ciao.com interlopers had invaded the forum Shocked

But, yes, I got the general gist of the message.......

Can we have a "Mark all posts as unread" feature please? I thought this was usually a standard with phpBB message boards, but I don't see anything obvious that will do this.

There is a mark as read feature - why would anyone want to mark all posts as unread?

Cos there are some threads I've no interest in, so I come along, read the ones I want to read then I want to mark the rest as read. Probably me being a pedant more than anything else, but there you go! Wink

So you want to mark them as read. Not unread (per your first post).

There is an option, you have to click on the section first e.g. dooyoo.co.uk, then if you go below all the individual threads a the top of the next box there is a "mark all topics as read" option. Well there is for me, but I am not sure if it looks different because I am a mod.

Seems to me it would just be easier to ignore them.

I like to mark as read even when I ignore stuff.

It's that sense of completeness Laughing

I have that function too so I guess we all do!
