    Dale, what is the exact issue you're experiencing? I see that the conventional way of displaying each forum individually is now in operation. The downside that I am aware of is that this does make the overall length of the forum (top to bottom) much longer than the nested way within categories. It's something that I have mulled over when comparing the two methods and have wondered if there could he a happy medium between the two. Any thoughts?

    We've tried it a number of ways, but the current display method seems to make the most sense.

    Must be a FF add-on issue or something for me then. Once I've visited the site it runs quickly. If I go away and clear the cache I've then got a 60 second+ wait for it to initially load again.

    It seems to work perfectly for me now. I couldn't see more than 5 or 6 posts in the past using taptalk.

    Now I can see everything. Woohoo.

    Have to admit it looks good on a mobile even without taptalk. Very clean and fits the screen well. But glad taptalk is working now.

    My Firefox updated this morning and things seem a lot better, there's the odd occassion where it's a bit slow but much better than it was.


    Cheers, Grant

    When visiting the forum via typing in the domain, I've noticed it automatically forwards me to /activity.php rather than the list of forums and sub-forums on /forum.php. It does this whether logged in or out, so for non-members the activity stream could look confusing compared to the correct homepage.

    Not sure about anyone else, and the homepage is only a click away so not really a big issue, however I personally think it would be better forwarding everyone to /forum.php not /activity.php.

    Hi. I'm not sure how it changed over to activity.php but we've switched it back to forum.php now, as agree it's less confusing for first time visitors.
