I would if I could. I was offline over the weekend and it seems to have resolved itself.
OK well that is good news, thanks for getting back to me @ohnonotgmail :)

How can I? User's guide to some features on the new site
@Boards.ie: Niamh there is no way to delete your own post, is there? Reason asking - have notification about post in the thread, but attempt to open it return
Users can't delete their own posts but a mod may have removed it.
Ah ok, makes sense.
Message was by mod himself :D
Sounds like someone made an oopsie 😄
The Christmas Tree thread in the Christmas forum is not remembering my last seen posts and is staying constantly bold.
Same problem with "Galway Job Thread" in Galway City and County.
Were those threads started pre- migration?
If so, that's a bug that's been reported a few times already.
Maybe this has been asked before but I find it hard to search for posts on particular threads or on the site generally. Is the "Soccer tickets and travel" sub forum to the soccer forum just gone now? Is it hidden away somewhere ? Was very handy for many years for anyone planning trips to matches. Apologies in advance if this is repetition.
Gone but you can use this thread now instead:
Make our National Maternity Hospital Public and Secular
Annoy your TDs now!!!
I was just wondering why Society and Culture menu that appears in the dropdown from Topics jumps straight from languages to military, and skips the forums in between.
Looks like that was an omission leaving Legal Discussion and LGBT out - not by design, I'll have to go through the whoe menu and see if anything else is missing. Thanks for the heads up and apologies.
looking at the discussion in the last few posts about the drop down menus, the science health and technology sub menu is only one column wide, so that's making it impossible to see the last 5 or so entries in that area, one of which is a high traffic area, weather, I have only just seen from the example above that the sub menu can be split into more than one column, which would possibly solve the problem, as it's not possible on my machine to scroll down to the "missing 5"
Shore, if it was easy, everybody would be doin it.😁
Thanks @Irish Steve the menu needs a bit of work and has been earmarked to be worked on in the coming days/week
Banking & Insurance & Pensions is also missing under Topics -> Business & Finance -> Personal
Desktop on Windows/Firefox. On the right hand side we had a couple of menus, the top one was categories, and then under that was popular (or similar) which had a subset of the most active forums. I know it was said at the time they were temporary.
That second menu was useful, because at the bottom, it had the weather forum, which with the other issues of menus not working correctly meant it was a quick way to get to the weather forum. The second drop down menu seems to have gone AWOL, was that intended, or an accident along the way in among another change, as for me, it's a retrograde move to be losing that at the moment, given the other menu problems are not yet resolved.
Extra click and you there, if this any good for you.
When I go to "My Forums" on the front page and click on a post it takes me to the top of the page containing the first unread post, not to the first unread post itself. Then when I click back it takes me to "Latest Posts" not "My Forums"
That works, albeit on a laptop, it makes for a very big drop down that goes off the bottom of the screen, hence the problems with some of the menus on the other drop downs, as they don't scroll. Thanks
The bug with threads not marking as read seems to have changed, there's a thread here
that is not marking as read for me, but as far as I know, it's not an "old" thread that goes back to antiquity, but it won't mark as read for me at the moment,
I will try it on mobile (I hate that device) and see if it's different, the most recent result was that the thread could be marked as read, but it still goes to post 1 if you access the thread.
The game platforms section of the top menu isn't populating correctly. Only nintendo shows, PC, XBox and Playstation are all absent.
Terrestrial is missing under Cable & Digital TV.
This has NEVER worked for me!
If only clicking would take me to the latest post, I'd be a very happy bunny.
Just clicking the main link brings me to the latest post.
It only works if you have already visited the latest post, not when you try on a thread you haven't visited yet or has freshly unread posts.
There's a little bit of ambiguity here, which leads to confusion: "Latest" is not the same as "Last". The button you're clicking is intended to take you to the latest unread post (although it doesn't always work, especially on threads created before the migration). There is no native* way to go directly to the last post in a thread
* The browser extension in my sig does add true "last post" functionality (desktop only)

OK, in my head 'latest'='last'. What you are inferring is that 'latest'='first unread' which does not make a lot of sense to me. Obviously all this is open to interpretation.
Ive brought this issue up multiple times but it seems to get ignored. Its so frustrating. By clicking the arrow it should bring you to the first unread post in the thread since you last visited. For someone following a thread this is the most logical point you would like to return to.
Some threads it works and other threads (and it seems to be totaly random) you get directed to the top of the page that somewhere contains the last unread post
Multiple people have mentioned that and Niamh has acknowledged the issue so it certainly hasn’t been ignored, vanilla sure does have a lot of issues.
Rich Text Editor.
To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph.
An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu.
Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
