    Hi Steve, like you and Paul, i also got the message ( Firefox ). 2 ways around it. 1, click the little stay logged in box, or 2, after typing your name, press the tab button on your keyboard, then it will let you enter your password. :)

    How large is the image you are trying to upload?

    @Andy Frances - you'll need to decide on the maximum allowed dimensions and upload limit which needs to be set.

    4032x3024 5.52mb
    Those numbers mean nothing to me.
    Trying on the PC, will try on the Android phone too.

    It should work now, as I've increased the upload limit size to 10mb, and the server will scale it back down to 1024x1024 pixels.

    Great work chaps. :)

    Paul, are there any options to customise the view, e.g. font size or colour scheme? Download more emoticons?
    I remember in the old forum you could decide how many posts per page of a thread to display.

    Hi Dave

    I'm learning as we go. It appears that the only posts per page setting is board wide and not user set.

    Font size is set. On mobile you can increase it as normal. Colour scheme is fixed. Pretty much as old board I think.

    Have not delved into emoticons yet, but old board had fixed set as has this it seems.

    But I'll look further when I can.

    That was straight from my Samsung S7. I think it's great that you can post pictures from a phone instantly.
