    Android mobile access all kinds of messed up, will not log in, security risk issues. Have to request desktop version, security risk notification crashes chrome. Not sure what changed... Why the security risk? Both mobile and pc in both chrome and Firefox have flag warnings about the site being unsafe.

    Just flipped back over to 'new' and am impressed with the improvement! I'm going to keep flipping for a while longer and see where I stick...
    Gratuitous pic just to see how loading a pic worked - all good! T79 - 01 - Weldborough - JL-4-(ZF-0638-73489-1-001).jpg

    Are you still having trouble with this? I had same issue on desktop, but it was fixed after closing browser and trying again. Might be cookie related?

    Not sure, I will add to list and ask developers

    Just logged in via mobile, so what ever was the issue seems to be resolved now. I'll let you know if anything changes. It kicked me out mid session yesterday. Restarting the browser didn't work, I had to request the desktop site to log in, but then that caused the security issue and crash. Restart then try again, still no log in on mobile site, request desktop, ignore non secure warning and log in worked, that was last night. Today it's back to normal.

    Good question. I do not see one but we may be able to add something like that in the future. As for not liking the new format, have you tried switching to old style?

    The 5 minute time limit for editing a post is way too short (especially for longer technical posts) -- can you please increase it to at least 20 minutes (and 1 hour would be better IMO)?

    Hey Steve.

    That one is already on the list. I know it's adjustable, from the other site, but may not be the highest priority at the moment with a lot of other fish to fry..

    I think there is good reason for a shorter limit of the edit function...

    some people - especially in controversial discussions - tend to change their original posting even after several responses -
    in the end the whole thread doesn`t make sense any longer since the references are erased

    I made the experience in other forums ... and this one will be no exeption, think of political threads ;)

    but 10/15min would be nice anyway

    Arguably the political section shouldn't dictate what else happens on a Ferrari-discussion site. ;)

    Yes the old style new page is now back to full width on the screen. That changed yesterday after the 60/40 split screen created numerous negative comments.

    I chose the old style too! You can tell how old I must be by how much I hated the new look...

    is there not a way to report individual posts? I tried to find it to report that issue, to no avail.

    This has probably been asked before but I am too Lazy to read through this thread:
    1. How do I revert back to the old "skin" (with the blue and grey colors?)
    2. How do I clear all posts as "read"? After the update, every post since the beginning of Fchat is marked as "new". I want to reset.

    bottom of any page, it says "FerrariChat-New". mouse over that and the option to switch to "FerrariChat-Old" will pop up.

    Can we have bigger avatars like the old one?
    What is the indicator whether a thread contains pictures without opening it?

    TapaTalk is way down the list of priorities. I use it as well, so I can dig what you're saying.

    First priority is to get Desktop set to liking - and bear in mind that what happens on desktop carries over to Mobile Platform.

    Other sites I'm on that made the much needed switch from unsupported vB to supported Xenforo have not done as pleasing a job in that regard - by a longshot. So, for their Members, TapaTalk is a complete Hallelujah necessity.

    We have discussed avatars in depth and the general answer is that they are extremely limited on new software, but I will add to list for future development of our custom theme.

    There is no such indicator.

    It's not a big deal, but it kind of sucks that when you click "more options", the only option you get is "preview". It would be better if it just had the "preview" button, instead of "more options", rather than requiring you to click the "more options" button and then click again on the only option that is revealed (although maybe superusers like moderators see more options than are visible to regular users).

    If the software allows you to change the order of options, then "preview" should go before "upload a file", which is far less commonly used, then "preview" would have single click access and "upload a file" would require the additional "more options" click.

    it seems like the search functionality has changed. Now, when I go to the search function the default box only allows me to search for users and specify dates. i cannot search keywords unless I go into the advanced features. It is way more beneficial to search keywords for useful information. Is this a setting or configuration?

    I wasn't attacking the messenger and/or problem solver (AKA you :)) with that comment, I was just pointing out the inefficiency to the Fchat admins who are tweaking the new software.
