    The new Rockwheelers forums work in a similar way to most online forums.

    You can start threads and reply to others.

    You will need to register an account to participate in the forums.

    You can add images to your posts by scrolling past the text editor to the attachments section as shown in the image below. If you want to see a full size image, just click on it.

    You can upload most file types and even documents to your posts.

    To display the image with your reply or topic text press on Insert Into Content once you have selected a file. This will generate a small BBCode which is where your images will display once you press the Submit button.

    Is there a way to unhighlight read posts?

    Not sure what you mean, there shouldn’t be any highlighted posts as all except for sticky threads.

    In the old forum, when you read the thread, it went from red to black, showing that you have read all in that thread. In this version, all read threads seem to stay orange.

    Oh ok, yeah that feature doesn’t exist in this forum but I can look at making it.

    I wouldn’t mind a button that would show new posts since my last visit – if it is there I can’t find it 🙂

    I have worked on the emails situation, so let me know if you are not getting notification emails from today.

    I’ll look into something to show unread posts as well.

    Ok so unread topics now show an arrow icon next to them if they have unread posts inside.

    would be good to be able to re edit posts that have been posted, to change some info. also we had a count last forum to see how many people were reading posts, handy to know if people are accessing content that i may post for trail adoptee info. to measure its usefulness as a medium?

     

    so it let me edit here but not on Trails forum???
