When I want to like a post, I press the react button. However, I'm sure I've seen a thumbs down on a thread somewhere, so presumably to unlike the post. Anyone know how to do that?

Not sure if this is specific to the "new" GPG, but is it only possible for posters with certain privileges to create polls within threads?

The "quote multiple posts" doesn't seem to work for me. It will only allow me to quote one post. Otherwise excellent. Certainly a far bigger success that the ****ing awful "New Facebook". :sorted:

You have to select posts to quote THEN, when you reply, click on "Insert quotes..."

When typing, suggested words are offered that I might be typing, why is it when I click on one of these words, often a completely different word is put into my sentence?

Nothing to do with the GPG. That's your browser or device.

hi Mods

I really like the option to turn off sections with the little slider.

However, the top section is massive ~15 bits - is it possible to cut these into sections too? Or have the option to hide individual sections?

I dont even look at half of the sections!

Thanks as always, loving the improvements as we go!

Maybe. I'll put it to the committee, if you could raise a ticket in Service Now, that would be useful.

On iphone ios 14.1 with chrome, when you first open a browser tab and load the gpg all is well.

But if you turn the phone, triggering the rotation, when you turn it back the site no longer fills the screen, you have to close the browser tab and start again.

Still waiting for my new/old post separator on desktop, and that was a High.

I'm boring myself if Im honest

I dint see it before?
You have to quote a post for the box to appear. If you just reply, it isn't there. I don't know what the screenshot is supposed to show me.

Are you on a work machine or using a VPN ? That certificate doesn't match that of the GPG's .

'slow
The current page on the pagination when within a thread is clickable and reloads the current page. IMO it shouldn't be a hyperlink at all, just display as a selected state as it does correctly.

I'd avoid clicking it if I were you.
