is what I searched for, but I found the results are further down the page
Great thanks, now I can see the error, I think there's some formatting in 1 post in that list that causes the PHP error, we have to find out what it is and then globally change it in every post.

hI,

I've also sent a private message this morning. Gone in to look this afternoon and it is still in the outbox, not the sent messages, and there is no button to resend

It stays there until it's read

I don't like people's sigs that cover half a screen, especially when they multiple post in threads.

Attempting to turn off sigs gave me this...

Looking into it Bob, PHPBB does not come with a like button so it needs to be a modification or extension. The problem with adding non-core mods is that if the person/company stops development and support it can hold back further upgrades of the forum, that's the situation we had with the old ABR site and forum and something I'd really, really like to avoid in the future.

I have found a couple of extensions and (personally) would like to have a 'like button'. I'm evaluating them now.

You could always save an image on your desktop and add it as a jpeg like adding a photo. Search "thumbs" and see all the emojis...

Looks very boring and plain like this is the old layout and the previous was the new one, much prefer the look of the old one. That is just my opinion for what its worth....
