Great, that seems to work and I'm now running Chrome as a back up as well. Thanks for your help.

If you use Chrome as your mobile browser then all you need to do is open the site, click on the Chrome settings button (the 3 dots top right) then check the "Desktop site" box. It will only affect that tab in the browser.

Done  :821:
That's a similar method to the browser on my Samsung phone (I think it's based on Chrome?), but it only persists as long as I keep that tab open. When I close the tab and/or browser and start again it resets to mobile version.
 :157:

So no way to re-introduce the desktop button (or some other way in profile settings etc) to retain my desktop preference each time, i.e. as it used to do?  :027:

Apart from this annoyance the new look is good. I presume the 800 forum will follow suit?

"Unread" under your name in the box top right corner of screen.

Icy beat me to it!

Looked at this before and more complicated to implement then it might appear. I seriously doubt we'd add this unfortuantely   :038:
Yes.  Like button is a good feature to have.  I maintain a phpBB board.  Same thing there. Nice to have, but all too hard.
