Well done on your patience and persistence. I don't underestimate the work going in to upgrading the forum, and so far it's quicker and works much more smoothly. Well done and thank you????
Previous layout Dunston - Freight only layout. Era 8 (maybe a bit of 9)

I can't see that option in the settings.  However, I can see that you get the alert and an email.

Multimedia Gallery fully works again and an additional reaction mod is also now part of the mix.

The site is definitely faster and is also easier to use on mobile devices. I'm going to have to try the new image embed options later today, but it looks far simpler.

Awesome job so far guys and all the hard work is hugely appreciated!

Are there any specific areas/features you want some of us to help beta test and provide feedback on?

Still can anyone please @Tank @NGFTech explain as before we could add photos and it's proving awkward. Used to be able to add image to post and upload to gallery Still difficult for some who ate not technical like me

Looks like the add image facility is now there.
I'm sure I'll get used to cream first soon.

Just a quick question - is there anyway of 'bookmarking' a thread so I can return to it quickly? For example, a 'one click' to take me to my layout thread, etc.(Before the forum update, I used to have to go via Notifications and it wasn't the best way to go about it!)

Excellent job @Tank and all involved, having been involved a lot of major migrations, to have one like this completed by such a small team is an amazing job. well done.
cheers

Yeah, but they're not working even being tagged by the NGF Tech.
Note - I can't refer to their post number as post numbers also seem to have vanished e.g. #123

There used to be, Dave, but that capability seems to have gone walkies.
I can't find all my bookmarks, and I had loads of them :*(  :*(

Click Gallery at the top, then My Gallery once the page changes.  :thumbsup:

Ah!

I have to 'click' gallery twice for it to open that. I was only doing once and getting the three drop downs.

Thank you.
