    Angie,
    PM sent with the Wayback link. I spent a bit of time crawling it for another forum last year. If anyone finds broken or missing links and information I'll try and get it back. I have spent enough time crawling the web that I did get fairly good at it.

    IrisjLass,
    Thank you for fixing it!!!

    If you want me to Archive things I just happen to have a spare T stick laying about.o_O:eek:
    Pictures are not always saved on the Wayback Macine so be aware some of those may be gone.

    Steve, I'm all for you doing anything you can to help the Soapers here. I do appreciate you doing what you are doing to help, as you know the SMF threads much better than I.

    The software is saving what is happening, now what was happening. Things will get better. Especially with Steve helping out.

    earlene both have been fixed. Could you please send pm's to Mods for fixing these issues as it's a moderation thing. We might not see it here. It's not a software issue.

    Send to mods as requested, but please keep the posts here so I can go through and make sure things are being worked out.

    Just post it here and then report it. That way all mods will be notified and can see it. I can also.

    Thanks, that's going to let me know if a mod handled something that at first looked like a bigger issue than it is. Otherwise I keep looking.

    SF#13 Searching from a sub-forum searches all forums and sub-forums.

    SF#14 Attempting to view a live thread from “My replies” will give an unavailable error if any post in that thread has been reported
    (eg. typographical correction in single post, thanks)

    SF#15 Viewing a previous long post while drafting a reply will cause the typed text to display over the previous post text.

    Re SF#15
    I saw this when I was typing in thread number 48447 (soleseife-soap) ... I started type my reply, then went back a page to read a post, and that's when I noticed it. It'll show up pretty easily :)
    Re SF#13
    Please scratch that one - it's already been corrected

    Please give me the thread address from the top of the bar. I don't know that thread or where to find it.

    ETA: I searched and found it (search worked just fine) . I tried posting a reply and saw no overlay effect. But I'm on the laptop. I forget, are you on phone with a browser, or app?

    Thanks for the question on naming

    I am using the terminology in this way (copying from the screen):
    Forum - What I see when I click on "Home", at the top is Home> Forum, and the heading says "Soapmaking Forum", this has a list of forums (that contains groups of sub-forums) below. Eg. "The Soapmaking & Craft Forum"

    Sub-Forum - eg. "Lye Based Soap Forum", which I find in "The Soapmaking & Craft Forum"

    So, to make sure I understand how you are naming it ... which one is the section, index of threads and bar/categorys and index of sections/nodes?
    I'm happy to adopt your naming protocols, could you describe which is which for me, so that I can write the way that's easiest for you? :)

    Re: SF#15
    Desktop. I took a screenshot, if that helps?

    I'll try and replicate it first. It might be linked to the draft being saved, I'll double check how it happened and come back.

    Update:
    It was keeping drafts as I typed earlier today (a nice feature of the new forum), but it loses my typing as soon as I move off the page now?

    Is drafts still a feature?

    (If this functionality has been removed, then the overlay will have gone with it, because the text won't be available when moving off the page).

    I am not seeing drafts on my posts either. I'm going to check that as drafts are handy and other XenForo forum members find them helpful. They usually hang around about 1 hour, some have longer.

    ETA: I have checked the settings here, and it is drafts are saved for 24 hours, but Quick Reply does not save the drafts.

    Right here, silly!
    Just fixed it. Merged them back together and placed them in General Chat, where I think they were originally.
