The "Unread posts" button takes me two the same post for a few threads over and over even when new posts have been made to them. For example, "Random thoughts" and "I received today". Anyone else experience the same?
Having been demoted from moderator, I no longer have this issue. But, I have a weird sense of lost purpose instead for some reason.

Can we have a "work safe" board style? I used to use the mobile one as it was just black / white (possibly with some blue) and just a text header etc, but it's not there anymore.
What's the issue? The big logo?

And the use of colour, bright blues, pink etc. There used to be a mobile theme that was pretty much black and white.

Mobile dedicated themes went the way of the dodo with phpBB3.2, everything is responsive now.

I'm all for being subversive at work but won't be doing anything about the forum appearance. I don't know what your work infrastructure is like - mine can potentially track anything I access using their equipment so I use it sparingly. I carry my own equipment (including connectivity) for times I need to get on, which would allow me to use browser extensions/OS screen colour "hacks" to hide activity in plain sight if necessary.

On another note: I've made tweaks to our web server that seem to have made the forum noticeably more responsive. I don't know if the "30 second wait" glitch is still happening or not. IAll of the tests I've run haven't hit it, and the only times I've seen it personally has been on mobile where I see all sorts of similar stuff across the whole web (Firefox Fennec with uMatrix)

Acceptable use policy allows me to look at my own stuff, it's more the funny looks I get from shoulder-surfing colleagues when they see big animated avatars of knight type dudes with bright red flowing capes etc :awe:

I can live with it, I just fire up IE11 and turn images off 8-)

You can turn off images etc in your board preferences, and use prosilver for a less in your face colour scheme.

The one where the attachments just disappeared while editing the post? Man, that was annoying.

Looks like the 3.2 update broke the tables in this post. :problem:

How do I change/edit feedback that I left for someone?

I meant to add positive feedback, not negative, doh!

app.php/userfeedback/feedback?u=8057

Thanks :)

I've updated MediaWiki to 1.33 for security fixes, unfortunately this *breaks* authentication with forum logins completely https://github.com/Digitalroot/MediaWik ... /issues/35

As such, wiki editing is disabled completely as no-one can login.

I'll find some time in the next few days to re-enable logins using MediaWiki authentication (blocking general account creation due to bot efforts) - you'll then need a separate account for editing the wiki until the plugin is fixed.
