    I'm now getting used to this new format and am learning to navigate it, albeit slowly. Thanks to Marc, Adie and whoever else for all the hard work it has clearly taken to achieve. THANKS.

     

    I have one request though. Would it be possible to have a quick link at the top and bottom of the page to say 'go to bottom' and vice versa (or something like that)? It was a quick link that lazy little me used a lot on the old forum. Not sure if that's an impossible or unreasonable request - I hope not.

     

    Also, I've just noticed that there doesn't seem to be any spellchecker keeping watch over us as we type. I guess we can expect even more kweshtionibble spolling from now on.

    Hi Helen,

    I have added quick links on the top of all posts and forums so you can now zip top to bottom and vice version.  There is a spell checking included, but it has to be installed per client. If you look at the tool bar when replying, you will see a little ABC with a tick. Click on that and install the spell checker client and away you go !

    Marc,

     

    Thanks for the 'top' and 'bottom' bits - I'm already finding them really helpful. I'm not sure who said it, but they're right about not being able to spellcheck on Firefox. Never mind, the hassle it saves from Explorer is worth it anyway.
