    Hi,

    Some of you may have noticed some small changes to the Community site yesterday and this morning.

    Following feedback from the forum members we have implemented the first set of changes to the site.

    We have listened to your suggestions and feedback, and more changes will follow in the future but we hope this initial set of adaptations to the forums will be helpful to you all.

    Send reply button

    In a conversation (personal/private message), the post reply button has been changed to send reply:

    Top button

    We've added a top button at the bottom of the homepage, each forum landing page and thread page for people who wish to return to the top of the page to cut down on scrolling:

    Most Popular Threads

    A new panel on the right-hand side allows you to see at-a-glance the top threads on the forum. This panel appears on every page that you visit in the forums including your conversations and alerts:

    Well spotted @marlin. Thank you. I forgot to include the fact that this button is in threads as well.

    @TES_Rosaline
    I use the alternative green version of the TES screens and the top button isn't present/visible yet
    All the other changes are there and are most welcome

    I see the 'Most Popular Thread' box has replaced the 'Who's Online' box

    @TES_Rosaline
    I tell you what else I've lost...the ability to snoop at who's looking at what thread. It's used to be do-able with the 'Who's Online' box.

    Most Popular doesn't seem to reflect what is most popular in any dynamic sense.

    The most popular panel will show the the most viewed threads over the previous 5 days.

    @yfel_endwerce we will not be making changes to the old beta view, all changes going forward will be to this version of the site only.

    The 'who's online' box will be returning, just a little glitch on our side.

    So I saw from the other thread where I gave reasons why that was a real problem for me.

    That's not to say we won't be making changes to this site going forward. We review all the feedback we get and continuously look at how we can improve the site, as I hope you can see from these recent changes.

    Today every time I move to a new page or different forum I'm being logged out.
