Is there a way to look at every post that was posted in the a time frame?  Such as the last 24 or 48 hours?  The reason I ask is because the home page has the most recent 10 entries on it, and on busy days where a bunch of people throw in some comments, another recent topic will be moved off the bottom through attrition.  Or do I just need to buy a phone and check BBC all the time to stay up to date?
The following link will give you the last 100 posts:

The one line posts still seem to be obscured by the scroll bar.
I don't get that.  Can you send a screenshot?

Look at reply #10 in this thread..It appears as though a post that has only 1 line is obscured by a horizontal scoll bar.

Can someone check this for me?  I made a modification to the code.

Works fine until I add an emoticon. Maybe pad all posts with an extra blank line at the end...

It took TWO carriage returns after the emoticon in order to make the scroll bar go away.

One problem I am seeing is that you can no longer click on linked photos in order to enlarge them. I usually post extra large-sized photos from SmugMug so folks can enlarge them for more detail... Is it just me or os this happening for others also?  :eusa_think:

Testing...


Moderator trying a return after the image to see if the horizontal scroll bar goes away
....OK, this way still works (at least for me) but isn't automatic as you have to nest a smaller photo inside a link to the larger version.


Moderator trying a return after the image to see if the horizontal scroll bar goes away..this way (which I guess was automatically done on the previous version of the forum software) does nothing with a left click, but will show the larger version if you right click on it and select "View Image"..but then I'm still using XP so what I see isn't much help to most?

Yes, it happened to me also.  A message I sent did not show up in the "Sent" box, but the message did go through.

First Russian Collusion, then Obstruction, then illegal payment to Stormy Daniels, then tax returns subpoenaed. Now no formal vote on impeachment for a 30 min. phone call to Ukraine

No crime. No evidence, just more secret investigations

Drain the Swamp.  America will survive.  God Bless America

Regarding the enlargement of pictures--I have Windows 10 and it works just fine.  I double left click on the photo and it automatically appears as a much larger image.
Wake me when it's time to go.

I'm using Firefox on Windows 7 Home Premium. The following picture is 800 pixels wide.


It should display as 640 pixels and expand to 800 when clicked (if the software is working like it used to). Here is the same picture at 640 pixels.


When previewing before posting, both are displayed at 640 pixels. After posting, the top one is displayed at its native 800 pixels. When I modify the post, the img tag has been automagically updated to [img width=640 height=98], but it still displays at 800. :eusa_think:
