I thought the RSS feature was disabled.

@Joe, is there any hope of the "subscribe" feature returning for threads?

I always try to tag someone when I reply to/quote them so they'll be notified.  Unfortunately not everyone does this 🙁  

Too much work to go to the HTML name list to find out if a person had a name before their name.

Somewhere above the forums list, under the profile, inbox, login/out, etc. It's a drop-down.   

Thanks @Beatlebug, I've found it.

Nope. And also, when I mouse over 'remove notice' for mentions, it looks like this: 

the_forum_looks_strange_this_morning3.jpgImage Enlarger

instead of what it usually looks like -- I can't quite remember, but it wasn't that.

Which post did you thank, leppysheppypeppy? Cause the one I made above only shows Evangeline's thanks. 

Also, when I quote a post, it doesn't take me to the bottom of the page -- I first noticed this when I ended up quoting something twice, thinking I hadn't clicked 'Quote' properly the first time.

That was what I suspected, though we can't be sure -- I shall take AnnaShine?40's advice and see if the problem clears up.

Mods need to fix that.  Right now I'm using the mobile site and it's working fine.

Nope. 

Also, to be clear, the weird quotes in my above post are just me. The posts do quote normally, I just have to manually scroll down to see the post box.

Could be a cookie thing try getting rid of that. Or another browser or device and see if the problem follows.

It seems I didn't thank any, but it's working now-- the text for some of the buttons is still black though.

When I press the thank button, rather than turning into "thanked," it turns into "0" and the star disappears. Also, after I press the thank button, the gray thing at the bottom of the post disappears, even if I'm not the first one to thank.

Same here @Necko & @pepperland. Now whenever I click on the “thank” icon, nothing happens, just a zero in the place the icon was… It started today. Is the BB is having problems?  (duh)

OK, sorry everyone. There was an update to Simple Press (forum software) last night. They tend to promise to fix a few bugs and glitches but often introduce a few new ones.

It'd be great if you could wait a few days to see if they roll out some more bugfixes. I'm seeing the Thanked but, the inconsistent black/blue buttons and the rest.

If no fix is forthcoming I can do some messing around myself and see what I can do.

There's also a WordPress update which I need to apply. There might be a few minutes' downtime. Hopefully it'll be otherwise OK.

OK, I ran the WordPress update and it seems to have fixed the Thanks problem. The notifications and font colours are still behaving oddly. The Derail thread seems to be back in its right place. Please report any other errors here (and I'll have a little cry inside).
