    Oddity for Muz re: replying to posts

    Muz,

    I was about to reply to V8 Druids ongoing saga when it dawned on me that there is only a 'reply with quote' hot button down at the end of a thread, and no 'reply' . The only 'reply' button is way up at the top of the first post on the page and not easily discover-able if there are many posts on a page.

    Any chance of a 'reply' button next to 'reply with quote' ?

    Now VERY oddly this thread HAS a blue button for 'reply' at the bottom left but V8Druid's thread hasn't ??????

    No Graham, this thread has the button at the top AND the bottom. Your much longer thread DOES'NT have the bottom button.

    OK I'm not going mad - here is a screen shot of the last page of Grahams thread with NO REPLY BUTTON ! Only 'reply with quote'

    Its there alright .. but for some reason its hidden behind all the page numbers on the left if you look closely, I presume its something to do with Chrome and your older operating system ?

    Its most likely an HTML issue for your O/S once a thread runs into a second line of page numbers. There would be a separator that keeps the button differentiated from the page number count, but in your case, its overlayed it ? ... something like that.. but I'm no coder so would need to ask the question

    I doubt it .. it will be hard coded into the forum software... 'however' ... if those that have the problem, can tell me their browser, and their o/s .. there may be a fix ? I dont know? .. certainly with windows 10 and firefox/chrome etc, it all displays perfectly.
