you mean on the mobile theme or the wap mode? i am not sure we can add more features to the wap mode but will add it to the list.

Sorry I did not realise  they were different.
I assume I am using wap mode  on the phone.
The other idea if you cannot add more features would be just move the Options to the top of the list so it comes between the Header " N Gauge Forum and "General Catergory.

I do have one other suggestion.

When someone sends you a PM, you get an email. In that email is a link to reply to that PM. However there isn't a link to just simply view the message without having to read it as a quote in your response. Can this link be added?

Ta :)

I know what you mean. I don't use the email link myself anymore because of this.

The email has two links in it. The first is to reply. The second link is to view and needs a bit of text above it to say 'View this message' and the link works - thanks

I wonder if the reply to link is not necessary as you won't know if you want to reply to the message until you have viewed it. Just my view though - what do others think?

the second link should have the text "Read this Personal Message here:" before the link... which apparently i did not upload the file so it was missing. it should show now.

Have ploughed through all this (I even understood SOME of the tech stuff....but not much !) and I thought I'd put my ten pennyworth in !! I've been an n gauge modeller for 12 years now - more than some , but less than many more - and grappled with dcc for 10 years , and I just wish that the Forum had been available in my early years . I read recently in a mag article on the Dapol company that n gauge accounts for only 10% of our hobby's business , but it feels more than that....doesn't it ???
                   If you look at how busy the firms are which produce n gauge items , and at how many new ones are surfacing all the time , it feels like we've reached a critical mass now - our wallets are constantly under threat , now more than ever !!
                   In my opinion , Tank & the rest of the team do a really great job on the Forum ( Thinks:One day soon , I'll find out how ALL the bits on the Forum work .) Take a bow!! Best wishes , Ric
