    Hey all
    Just a quickie to let you know I’ve added a new snazzy mobile navigation menu. It should make navigating the site on smaller devices much easier. B-)

    And for those who might have missed it, it’s the three horizontal bars top left, click them and the navigation menu drops down.

    I see the Likes icon has changed as well, hover your cursor over it and it will show those who’ve liked the post.

    I assume you are refering to the like button in which case, has it always done that Barty? I’ll have to dig out my android and see if I can debug it.

    I find the horizontal bars a tad annoying, it keeps catching my eye, almost looks in the way, would be better positioned on the right hand side, may be under our user name, well, it would for me.

    No, VK and Wiz. I just straight can’t access the site from my phone using 3/4g , or wan on LiveBox (or several other domestic broadband modem/routers), 4g router or satellite broadband.

    I assume it’s a setting on my phone that I’ve not found

    Not keen on this new way of showing likes. Preferred the old permanent pictures. I find it annoying when pictures turn up in front of text I’m reading. But hey I’m of an age! :-)

    Don’t like either! Much preferred the other way the site was.

    Please change it back Wizard  :cry:

    There was nothing wrong with it before

    Buddy, it obviously was a problem for certain members on smaller screen devices before, hence Wizard’s efforts to change things. And if there are automatic and uncontrollable updates of the system software, that is not something that Wizard has control over, unless he blocks all updates and the site will gradually get slower and slower because it’s not up to date.

    As with many things, learn to live with it and be grateful it’s here in the first place.

    Well I think it’s an excellent improvement to the UI sites.  My mobile phone can now access everything rapidly, which is great when I’m out and about.  Well done Wizard and many thanks from me. :heart:

    Another small annoyance, is if you are using a tablet etc without a mouse, when you touch the like facility to see which member has given a like to the post it immediately adds a like from you regardless, so you have to unlike it, so if you see my avatar on one of my posts, it’s not me being bigheaded, just a mistake. :whistle:

    Sorry Wiz, as someone reading this on a tablet it is NOT an improvement.
    When zooming in to make the type easier to read that stripey cube grows too hiding the top few lines. The new way of displaying “likes” is not good either, accidentally touch the area its in and the box opens and hides the lower part of the posting. How do you close that box ? tap it and you end up liking something you may not agree with. Not all change is for the better. If someone told you it would make life easier for us Androids they were wrong.

    Come on Wizard, get your wand out and move the horizontal bars over to the right hand side and the likes to as they were before, pleasy. :rose:

    Thank you for moving the horizontal bars over to right!  I had problems before    On my iPad to log in because the bars obliterated the log in bit!  :yahoo:

    The Likes button has to be debugged; however, Wizard has a life to lead, a house to finish building/renovating and all the other websites he has built to be managed from time to time (this is far from being the only one), so give the guy a break, chaps.

    With respect, VK, some of us are only giving our feedback on the changes to the forum, I take it it wasn’t the members who asked for the changes? Nobody has asked if it can be done pronto!!!

    I know very little about computers, but when I click on the 3 stripey thingy it just shows exactly the same as in the green bar at the top of the page, or am I missing something.

    Just asking, VK, not insisting and just a light hearted comment from me regarding Wizard’s wand, would have accepted your comment if I’d asked Wizard to step on it!!

    Same here VK, not demanding, just saying what we prefer. Wizard has tried to change it for the better, but we are saying we preferred it as it was. Not a ‘dig’ in any way.

    Really don’t like the ‘likes thing’ now. So much better the way it was before, being able to see who liked your post  :yes:

    ‘If it ain’t broken, don’t fix it’  ;-)
