    So its been nearly 2 weeks since the migration and so far all seems to be going well, I do still have a number of thing on my list to work through but now we have settled into our new home I'm looking to hear your thoughts.

    I'm looking for ideas or recommendations for ways to improve your user experience, this could be tweaks to the user interface, changes in the style or adding new features.

    Please do let me know, no idea is a bad idea so please do post anything that comes to mind in this thread be it big or small.

    Thanks in advance. Si :)

    Is there an option to view only the OPs posts in a thread? I have wondered this with other forums as well, especially if its a long thread following a project.

    Do you mean showing the first post on every page?

    I think he means to filter out anyone elses post on a thread. IE if someone was doing a sort of blog post on say building a home VMware test lab, then to just see the OP's posts to follow what they did, as opposed to everyone elses posts being in there saying "looks neat", and "I might do this" and that sort of thing.

    I think! lol. I think that as I also frequent car forums a lot and a lot of people do build threads of cars and often wondered if I could do the same thing on those forums!

    How about post count? I tend to view the home page and like the fact of being able to see how many posts there are to a thread.

    Thats not a feature I have ever seen in a forum, I can take a look at if anyone else has ever requested this sort of feature and see how feasible it would be to implement

    Fixed, you should now see the post count on the homepage forum posts section. :)

    Yes mate, we can add as many as people want. They really need to be categorised as otherwise they take time to load the page, but yes we can add more.
