- Forum Update
I think it’s when someone clicks the “reply” link at the bottom of your post rather than replying to the thread. If so then you should get a notification with this post.
When you look at the notification I believe clicking on it should take you to the reply but it didn’t work for me when I tried it earlier this morning.Posted 8 months agobikebouySubscriber
Yeah I noticed that.
Whilst I can see the benefit for MI reporting, I really don’t care who responds to a thread.
Also, are the notifications recording single entires per thread that the user has created?
recording the entries per forum since the users last entry?
I see no real benefit of knowing either..
Looks pretty, but ultimately pretty pointless addition.Posted 8 months agodeadkennySubscriber
I’m always interested to see a thread I’ve replied to has had updates, so I can read the further replies. Else I forget which ones I replied to or have to search for it. If the notification at least took me to the thread, that’s fine. All these currently do is say someone replied to something, which isn’t useful at all.Posted 8 months ago
I guess they are implimenting something, which isn’t quite working as yet. To be honest, it doesn’t look like it’ll ever be much cop, but I’m willing to give it a go once it’s sorted 😆
The search still doesn’t work. I searched for this thread (top result in Google), but here I got:
Good eh?Posted 8 months agowhitestoneMember
As previously there are two ways to reply on a thread: using the reply “button” (next to the report “button”) to reply to that post which I’m assuming triggers the notification, and replying to the thread by typing directly into the edit box at the foot of the page.
Usually something like this allows the forum code to insert text along the lines of:
In reply to < link to post> by < user name>
which gets round the “I wasn’t replying to you” confusion.
Obviously that bit isn’t implemented yet. Have a look at the UKClimbing forums for examples of this.Posted 8 months ago
Would it be pertinent to mention a few of the forum issues and ask if there’s likely to be a fix. Seeing as they’ve been known about for a while now.
The copy and pasting issues – code garbage and there being a limited space for right-clicking in the text box
Navigating to end of a thread – sometimes clicking on “and was last updated 2 months ago by” works, sometimes it doesn’t.
Just wondering like.Posted 5 months ago

The wickerman is under construction at STW towers as we speak. It’ll be ready when it’s ready.
Is the Swiftkey issue still on the ‘to do’ list (I know how low down the list it was), or has the list been chucked away now?Posted 5 months agoCougarSubscriber
On that subject, is it still an issue?
I resorted to installing SwiftKey when Swype stopped working a little while ago. I found it to be flaky as shit, not just on STW but on a few other sites too (notably Facebook). I had to temporarily switch back to Gboard on those sites, it was unusable. Then there was an update a few months back and it all just started working, it’s been fine on STW and elsewhere ever since.
Are you using the latest version? I’ve got 220.127.116.11 here.Posted 5 months ago
I’ll check, but still an issue for me on this site and no others. Loathe to chuck it because it is very good at predicting the bollox that I tend to text on a regular basis.
Hmmm. 18.104.22.168, but showing no inclination or option to update on my phone. Will see if I can hunt down an update.Posted 5 months ago
How about sending back constructive criticism to the owners who obviously DGAF about anything that doesn’t line their pockets unlike all the ads that have made this place almost unusable instead of being a sarcastic……
