What are your thoughts on the new forum?

Hi everyone,

The new forum certainly takes some getting used to doesn’t it.

How are you finding it?

I was initially really disappointed to see the back story is no longer a thing, but if you click on a person’s name you can see it there.

My link to my ‘diary’ thread no longer worked, but I saw you can pin a topic to your profile, so I’ve done that now.

It’s going to take some getting used to, but I think it’s definitely better. I’d like to give myself an hour or two at the weekend to try and learn a little more too.

How are you finding it?

I hope you’re all doing okay xx

I think the biggest challenge is that the cookie settings sign overlaps the reply button on your app. So each time you press reply (you can only see ly of reply) the cookies button pops open.

Hope it can be fixed x

Hi @Lemon_Lavender

We have now fixed this issue, so the cookie settings button should no longer overlap the reply button on mobile.

If you notice anything else please do let us know.

Many thanks
