I had a strange quirk with remaining logged in appear with an old upgrade, can’t remember if it was the last on, it the one before.

I used to bookmark the portal page. The one that looks like this.

Every time I visited I had to log back in and nothing would work to resolve the issue. I can’t remember who it was, but someone suggested bookmarking the forum home page instead and ever since I’ve had no issues being remembered. The forum home page is the one that looks like this.

When I first enter the Forum, theres no sign of the 'Sales Corner' - something eventually triggers it & then its shows the wrong 'Last post' detail against a thread ...

Also, in the Index summary for this General Discussion thread, there no indications of New Posts until one actually enters the Thread ?

I only ever use the forum on my mobile and all functionality appears ok on it. I occasionally use Tapatalk and it seems ok there for me too in case that helps isolate any issues.

I’ve noticed something a bit odd since the upgrade. When I look at the board index page, the last post column isn’t always displaying the correct post and time. I’ve mainly noticed it for sales corner, it’ll show the correct time stamp for the most recent post, but not the correct thread title.

Example below for the Gallery section.

^^^ That's a curious one. :-k

Are we certain it hasn't been doing that all along and we just didn't notice?

I’m certain it hasn’t. I log on far too frequently for my own good and the last post headings in SC are usually one thing I check before clicking through.

Is it just me - the little square to take me to first unread post on a thread is no longer reliable. Seem like it doesn't always remember where I left off...

Non CW of the day thread a case in point. Quite regularly since the upgrade it takes me to a page about 5 before the end of the thread?

Yeah I've noticed that too. Sometimes find it jumps to the previous post from the user who has the latest post if that makes sense?
