Ok you crazy cats. You should now see a link to unread posts when you hover over 'Home' on the main menu.

You're welcome! :D :D :D

Also added a link to recent posts just because I could :p

I found that the 'unread replies' link still exists:

http://www.songwriterforum.co.uk/index.php?action=unreadreplies

It would be good to get that in the home menu...

Hi RAM

There is now a link to UNREAD posts in the HOME menu drop down

I think you just need to update your link to this one: http://www.songwriterforum.co.uk/unread/?all;start=0

awesome job on the upgrades Tone and Boydie - very creative!
My favourite colour is, well, grey - but I like the look and feel of the new site  ;D ;D
And the boingy menu items too  ;D ;D

Actually the links don't lead to the same content. Your link is for unread posts, and Ram's link is for unread replies. I thought I knew the difference when I began this post, but now I'm here I don't really know!

But I just followed both links and the content was definitely different....

I can add it very easily if required boss @Boydie

Hey @boydie
The link I posted is specifically for unread replies to your own posts, the link in the home menu is for all unread posts. Both links existed on the old forum and I think both were particularly useful. Narcissist's like me love to quickly know when their own posts have some activity  ::)
Either that or it is a good ego knock down when you don't get any replies   ;D

I think having it in the HOME menu drop down means we can have all the different options - so add away @tone

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 :)

@tone, I can no longer replicate this snafu. I'll let you know if it ever happens again.

Nope, you did it nearly right. in order for tagging to work, you have to type the @ symbol and the name, but when the name appears in the drop down list you have to click or tap it. Otherwise it doesn't recognise it as a tag @CaliaMoko

Try again :)

Okay, here goes... @tone <<sigh>> I typed the @ and then I typed "tone". Nothing happened. No drop down list appeared. What's the long method? Maybe tone? Nope, that's for emailing.... Hmmm. I looked at the source code for the @CaliaMoko in your message, but it's really long. That would be unwieldy to do by hand. Maybe it's just my computer refuses to cooperate. ??

@CaliaMoko Just try typing the @ symbol followed by the first 3 letters, without any space,

If you are wanting to tag tone type @ton and then wait to see if a list appears

If it doesn't can you list your browser etc.
