Cheers guys.

I edited your link Nick as it was pointing to YOUR profile.

The Like mod is installed, and the @mention mod. If within a post you type an @ directly followed by a username you will be presented with a list of matching usernames. That user will get a notification that you have 'mentioned' them.

You should get alerts for both mentions and likes received.

I have tested Tapatalk and it appears to be working, but i rarely use it so may have missed something.

Fixed. You'll need to re-select it again as I had not entered it correctly. (Should have been "Alpha Numeric (Williams/Bally)" as that's what the software was checking for)

Thanks.

Approaching the 2 year anniversary of his passing. I'm glad you like it. We had the banner for almost 2 years, and we needed to revert back to the standard banner. The tribute at the bottom is permanent. From memory, it was one of Caleb's many fantastic ideas for the site upgrade !

Im losing unread posts.. deliberately not opening up posts only to find they are gone when I go back to "unreads"... I did have some 396 or so pages of these before the upgrade which have all gone... but im losing those I haven't read now..
