I've just been taking a look at forum features that might or might not be useful, and one that I've just noticed is the Categories link in the toolbar. With all the topic categories now being displayed permanently down the left side of each page, is the "Categories" link/page an additional item that we can now do without?

Cheers... sorted! I've also deleted the unused "Computer hints & tips" category, which I'd forgotten had been amalgamated into Information some time ago! Thumbs up

Additionally, I've now corrected the navigation between topics when viewing within one category. The normal topic index is in reverse date order, as we know, but individual categories, such as Motoring or Search for People are alphabetical, to make finding easier. And remember the shortcut keys to make your lives easier (only possible on PCs or laptops with a physical keyboard, unfortunately)..... Pressing N moves you to the Next topic. Pressing P moves you to the Previous topic. Pressing F takes you to the First post of the topic. Pressing L takes you to the Last post of the topic. Pressing the Left arrow takes you to the Previous page within a topic. Pressing the Right arrow takes you to the Next page within a topic. Cheers to all!

I've just noticed these extra characters é ¼ ½ ¾ © º 102 have appeared in the header for new posts, is this new or did I miss the announcement?

Our very nice host asked if there was anything we'd like added while he was moving the site to a new location. After a few days the conversation was deleted and as if by magic we got more buttons. Double thumbs up If there's anything else you can think of I'm sure it will be considered.

This week has seen two brand new threads opened, both of them in respect of Coventry car companies from long ago, two not very well known names. As a result, we have made a small change in the Forum Categories, renaming one as ‘Coventry Cars and Motoring’. This has enabled us to take the large number of car and motoring threads out of the ‘Industry, Business and Work’ category, which had reached over 170 in number! Although the original idea was to make the “new” category one for the Coventry car industry, it was felt that it should also include other motoring topics, including motor cycles, garages, car clubs, etc. We hope it will make it a little easier to search for anything to do with motors from and in the city. Thumbs up

Just a minor update this time. In addition to the smiley face icons, any post (past, present or future) containing the characters traditionally used for happy, sad or "winky" faces will now automatically display as those icons. So :-) or :) will become Smile :-( or :( will become Sad and ;-) will become Wink

Just a little eBay raid this time - 14 extra old Coventry photos. (Order by Most recently added first to see the new additions.) Not many, but I'm quite pleased with a couple of them - particularly the classic view of Spon End Arches, and the Railway Station Entrance.

A "new" feature for users of 'phones, iPads & any other touch-screen device. Members using laptops or computers with a mouse or touchpad will probably already know this, but if you hover your cursor over the little green number next to the "thumbs up" icon, a little pop-up will appear listing the names of those who have "liked" your post. However, it was brought to my attention recently that when using a touch-screen device, touching the number did not display the list. After experimenting, I found that this indeed does not work with numbers or text - only images. So, the number you now see is not a "text" number, but an image with the number "embedded" within it. This is why it now looks slightly different. So, those viewing on their 'phones & tablets can now touch the number to make a small window pop up, which you can click to see the list of members who have liked your post. Cheers! Cheers

Having only a tablet I had never heard of this, but just trying clicking the numbers now does nothing at all, Chrome or Samsung browsers.

I never knew about it either but I have just tried it on my iPad. Could not see at first but see now the number comes up bigger and the names are above a little box that says “share” etc, quite faint. Thanks, Rob.

I just found out how to do it on my Android tablet, do a long press on the number and a big white menu box pops up, it looks like a normal menu box except it has the favouritor's name above the usual menu stuff.
