On my Android phone, I can only post in landscape view.
@redrhodie in portrait mode you can use the 'quick post' text area at the bottom of the page instead of hitting the reply icon.

That's not coming up at all, and I don't get a keyboard for typing until I turn to landscape, and if I type a message and turn to portrait during it, it's lost.

Try this: don't click reply. Just read the thread you want to post in and scroll all the way to the bottom until you run out of page and can scroll no further

Nope, there's no post box, and my keyboard doesn't come up. I'm posting this in landscape view.

Am I the only one having this issue? I'm always causing trouble. Haha.

I think it's just you @redrhodie ;)

Do you have an up to date Android version? Is your screen on the smaller size?

My phone is new. I still have my old one, also Android, and the issue is the same on that as well. But I'm probably doing something wrong. Sorry to bother you.

So, when I switch over to desktop view, the post box is way over on the right and really small. I can post in portrait view that way, though. Just thought I'd tell you that. Maybe it will help you fix my problem.

Hi

Great new look to the site,but as it`s about the music,is there any chance of streaming songs uploaded,even just samples? So as soon as you log in you hear something,anything. Also there`s a lot of songs in finished and work in progress sections,can at the start of the topic/upload can the submitter describe the genre? We a;ll have our main likes and dislikes. It`d be easier to pick what to listen to if the start of the topic says `soul torch-song female vocal` or something. I`m pretty new here and unless I go to the links and listen I don`t have any idea what kind of style the songs are in,or what styles contributers specialise in. This would help in finding collaborations.

Cheers

What browser are you using @redrhodie ?

I'll look into your request @devilhoned although I would say auto playing media is a big no no in the web community generally. I do think embedded media would be really good though so I'll see what I can do there

If you're looking for collaborators why not post in the collaboration forum?

I have thoughts about auto streaming (no, please--I have limited bandwidth, although, if there were a universal setting, controllable by individual members according to their own preferences, it would be okay then)

and about identifying genre (I would have a very hard time with that, as I frequently don't know what genre I'm hearing or writing, except for the really obvious ones like jazz and folk. I would need to take a class on identifying genres.)

I am just now noticing a couple anomalies an anomaly (I forgot the second one by the time I was done explaining the first one. Perhaps I'll be back.)

A link on my bookmarks bar takes me to http://www.songwriterforum.co.uk/unread/?all;start=0. I use it a lot.

Tonight I clicked the top post on the list of unread posts: http://www.songwriterforum.co.uk/index.php?topic=14679.0
When done there, I clicked the bookmark link again. The same post was still at the top of the list.
I clicked it again and clicked the bookmark link again. Still there.
I checked the box next to the post and clicked "Mark Selected Read". The page did something, the check mark disappeared. Post was still there.
I clicked "Mark all messages as read".
The list disappeared, as expected, and the top post was gone, as well.
Then I browsed to the problem post and clicked the bookmark link from there. The post was back on the list!
Clicked "Mark all messages as read". Still there. Uh-oh! Should have left well enough alone.
Browsed to another post. Clicked bookmark link. Problem post still there.
Clicked "Mark all messages as read" again. This time the post disappeared.

I tested it a couple more times. Any time I browse to the problem post, it shows back up on my list of unread posts, even though I've read it. Then I have to browse to some other post or page on the forum before I go back to unread posts and click "Mark all messages as read" to get it off the list.

@CaliaMoko TONE is looking in to this as the unread posts bit is currently not quite working yet

@tone this link may help track down the issue as I had not previously seen this page:

Hmmm, that's strange. I can't replicate the issue here on my computer. @CaliaMoko can you try logging out and logging back in again to see if that fixes the issue?

@Boydie can you also try to replicate the issue and let me know what happens? Thanks :)
