I hate it because now I have to look down a list select a room and then open the post in that room to reply. With the portal I just replied.
That's how i used to do it too :angry-screaming:

Even AoS has a new posts page where you can see all recent posts. And TAS. The only other one complicated like this to see individual posts is Audio Talk, and they use the same software. I asked Jason to put the Portal on for this very reason, is there a way to do something similar.

Missing the Portal at the moment but whole forum is running fast, which always makes forum life more enjoyable.

The problem is lurkers can't see what are new posts apart from the very few at the top. The Portal gave them a quick in to read all the new post for at least a day (mostly AoS). Now it is only signed in members who see a indication of new posts and what threads have been updated. As I say Lurker numbers have halved, and we are a forum of small number of member and very large number of lurkers - we need to cater for them.
