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. Also, perhaps a little mystery to solve, which I've plonked here. It's some kind of procession along King William Street, which I've tentatively labelled as 1911.... could it be the Coronation? Or is the year wrong? Forum image
