Something I've noticed happening is that when I click on the button that appears next to the topics that have unread posts - the one that's supposed to take you to the oldest un-read - it takes me back several days, so I have to go forward to find where there's a post that I haven't seen yet.

Is this happening to anyone else?

Yeah, I've always noticed that. I figured it was a "feature." ;->

BTW, Joe, the buttons have gone missing from the advanced search again.

Thanks. Sorry, every time there's an update I have to go into the server to edit a file. It's a PITA and I forgot to do it one time.

Thanks, Joe, the buttons are back. Something else weird just popped up in the RSS notifier (don't know the right name). But now instead of listing specific topics that have been updated, you just get a long list of "Fab Forum | Beatles Bible."

That makes sense MMM. It's most likely a bug in the latest Simple Press update, to go with the mods' inability to move forum threads. Grr.

Parlance, the RSS thing is a new one on me. Again, I've never used that feature before. So frustrating. I'm investigating alternatives to Simple Press because these bugs are becoming a weekly frustration I could do without. Migration might be tricky, and the alternative (probably bbpress) might not look as nice, but on the plus side it's open source and has a better developer community, and it's made by the people behind WordPress so should integrate well. Bear with me for now - I need to research things a bit more and test it properly before making a switch.

Please don't spoil my day; I'm miles away

Can buy me love! Please consider using these links to support the Beatles Bible: Amazon | iTunes
