    Even though you've enabled Tapatalk, I decided to give the Xenforo mobile interface a try and I think I can say I won't miss Tapatalk. Found a cool feature last night. When in "Watched Threads" view, the thread topic link takes you to the first unread post (just like the little arrow button to the left). This is great, especially when viewing on phone. Good work everybody. I knew Baldy wouldn't steer us wrong.

    How can we ignore forums? CSM has to be taken in small quantities!

    I assume that people shouldn't get too used to using the built-in attachment functions, since server space was always such an issue?

    That works a bit different now. Instead of excluding some forums, you will use the new "Watched Forums." Select all the forums you want to see and don't select the ones you don't. Then use that interface to browse. Yeah, I know...that's what I thought, too.

    thanks - much better than too much csm.

    Once I marked the forums I want watched and selected the notification type, I snagged this url:

    http://advrider.com/index.php?watched/threads/all

    It is not however, giving me the latest replies on the watched forums in a list... boohoohoo....

    Is it just me, or when reading threads did the user info/avatars move from the left side of the screen to the right?

    It did. Baldy is making adjustments and testing things.

    Happened to me in the middle of posting a reply, and confused the crap out of me! :lol3

    How about a warning next time . . . to avoid whiplash! :D

    Since I read left-to-right, I tend not to know whose post I am reading until after I'm done reading it. It's awkward.

    I have to say I'm not a fan of user info on the right - I'd much prefer to leave it left.

    Also, is there a way to change colour of the font while posting as it was on the old forum?
