      LOL. I know - I don't think there's anything that can be done about that. I think it's meant to be helpful since usually people only do one quote, but yeah you have to scroll back up to quote another person

      • Can someone please explain to me why embedding tweets has become a painful experience on UK Mix?

        Literally every thread i click on, if they have a tweet embedded, it slows my iMac down something chronic and it is taking up to 5 minutes for a tweet to display in the post.

        I attempted a thread for the new Oasis single; https://www.ukmix.org/forum/music/so...on-t-stop-demo and my computer froze after i went to post the topic. All because i'd embedded a tweet from Noel Gallagher's twitter account.

        What i can't understand is why is it Twitter works perfectly for me? It loads all the tweets instantly yet on UK Mix is struggles to load one in a thread.

        I've even tried browsing other forums to see how they fare my comparison (i.e. Buzzjack which i'm not a member of but thought i'd do an experiment). Every thread on Buzzjack that has videos and tweets embedded load instantly, and down slow my computer down to a snails pace like UK Mix.

        It's really off putting and puts me off even coming on here sometimes because i know these forums continue to give me trouble to use.

        Is there any way you can wind up the machine so it works like Buzzjack?

                  Is the link working now?

                      • I'd moved the site forums onto a different template when I was fiddling with the homepage I wanted to add - and the Mark As Read feature only works when the forum is against the main forum index as that's where the javascript is used that makes the feature work.

                            I used to be able to click a link and see who gave me reputation and their comments. That seems to have disappeared now.

                                Go to User Settings, the tab Account and you have to click on Edit Post Signature and the editor will appear.

                                      I think I saw it posted somewhere that rep comments have been replaced by the like.

                                      • I feel like the limitation for a signature is pretty low with 500 characters. I can't even put up three different links from UKMix because those links are so long (longer than in the previous forum).

                                        Is it possible to put up a higher limitation OR is something like the premium membership coming back soon?

                                        Also I just wonder if people who still had a premium membership before taking it down still have their advantages. I know they paid for it (and I just forgot to check my junk mailbox for the notification that it expires for me) but... isn't it a bit unfair if some people have those advantages while the others have no chance of getting them as well, especially for this long?

                                            • I am a longtime user of UKM, and in particular always loved to visit the sticky page Chart Histories in the Chart Analysis forum. But since the changes in January it is next to useless with large type spoiling most entries and chart runs, and some pages coming up with:

                                              "Invalid Page URL. If this is an error and the page should exist, please contact the system administrator and tell them how you got this message."

                                              This was clicking on the Frank Sinatra index on page one, but just about any one is broken too. Considering this had over one million views, surely it is worth preserving, especially as the stalwart creator, the late great Hanboo, spent so much time and energy in presenting the information for us all to use.

                                              Why can't this be made available using the new server? It is definitely worth saving...

                                              • Does anyone else have the same problem where they have to log in pretty much each time they enter a new page/thread? Even as I'm writing this, I've been logged out due to 'inactivity'. This has been happening quite a bit since the site upgrade, but since yesterday it's happening all the time. I'm using Safari. Has this been happening to anyone else?

                                                  Have you checked the "Remember Me" option? Does it happen on different browsers? What are your cache options on the browser you use?

                                                  I've currently got the timeout option set to 7,200 seconds (2 hours) which is half what it was but should still be sufficient.
