One little feature that seems to now work as I want it work... I tend to open every thread I want to read in a separate tab (I know, it even sounds weird once I'd typed it) - in PW the tabs would only show the first bit of the site name and not the thread title harder to keep track of what they were about but not too bad when it was a maximum of 10 tabs :)

Now it seems the title shows up in the tabs and just in time too as there about a quadrillion posts every day now.

Hi Mantis, not sure if this is the right thread for this, just a little thing I've noticed in the Heroquest thread. Is there any way you would be able to implement expanding images in the forum code?

Some forums I've noticed let you click on the reduced image to see it blow up immediately to full size. It's no biggie, but would be nice.

Given that this is the thread for reporting bugs and not requesting feature creep, you're right that it isn't quite the right place. ¬_¬

Can you give me an example of a forum where the feature works as you described?

There's a tennis forum I sometimes use that has it: https://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/index.php
Britmodeller opens it full size in a new tab: https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php

I mean, I haven't done any searching around on Phpbb capabilities. It could be all the forums that allow it don't run on phpbb, I just wondered whether there was some kind of option in the forum software...

The Battlefield V thread seems to have developed a tag line ... something about the V being for vagina :)

Bit childish can it be removed please :)

They work for me too. Have you tried subscribing to threads of interest manually?

What email provider are you on? Could be they're extra strict with where they allow emails from or something?

Just a little thing I've noticed, but when posting a link to a review then adding the score below, it mixes up the numbers with the link. For example...

https://uk.ign.com/articles/2018/10/01/ ... sey-review

9 .2

If I dont input the space after the 9 and the .2 it awkwardly sticks the 9 and the . on the end of the link with a little scroll bar like this...

https://uk.ign.com/articles/2018/10/01/ ... sey-review

9.2

Any ideas?

Hmm, that is odd. Just put 'Score' before you put the number in for now until it's fixed. It just seems to be numbers which cause the formatting issue.
