If it's not too much trouble, I liked the new PM notification.
It's easy enough to find; but, you have to remember to look!

So... I just noticed that images that we import, don't fit on the line that you paste them on.
The smileys work, though!! :yes:

This is our forum smiley :cloud9: and it's on the line that I'm typing on.
This one is imported Image using the [img] function and it takes up its own line!! Strange; but, true!! :wink:

"They" say three's the charm:

Anyway of getting links to open up into a new tab?
i.e., I clicked on the chat room and it opened up in this tab,
instead of opening up a new one.

Ohhh... you don't think it's handy to be able to keep this tab open whilst another one goes to another?
Mind you, it's no big deal if it stays this way, as I can always right click on the link and do it that way! :wink:

No, we were asking for basically the same thing (either open link in a new window or a new tab).

Is there any chance we can get the "who's online" function back?

It's where it's always been: bottom of Index Page - only you have to click on the arrow to toggle it on.

Are you able to make the Title of the Thread column tighter?
If you did, you could widen the Last Post column, thus making each thread bar require less lines.

Column width is dynamic - just play with your window width and you'll see the effect.

Anyway, no big deal!! :blush:
