  1. Hi, I've been meaning to broach this one for a long time, but never get around to it until now. The Search function defaults are a pain to the unwary, returning site-wide results no matter where you are in the community. I would like to see it behaving a bit more intelligently by default, so that if you are in a sub-forum it will automatically select "This Forum" tickbox, if you're in a thread it will choose "This Thread", when you're in a category it will... you get the idea, and in general it will always choose "All search terms", as it's the most often used method to narrow down your results. Being bombarded with a huge scattergun of results from the whole community is frustrating and counter productive when you forget to tick those boxes. Similarly, when you select "Manage followed Content" it currently defaults to "Forums" rather than "Topics", which to me and my members would be a better, more granular approach. As it is, my members get a sudden shock and think all their followed topics have gone and it still catches me out occasionally. I hope this can be integrated into one of the next updates, and if anyone feels the same way, chime in 🙂
  2. Hi, we've stumbled upon this lack of editing ability for photos, and I think it needs addressing, as members often move their photos around and would value the ability to change a folder, or domain to redirect the forum to their pics without having to delete and reinsert them all over again, as per Support's suggestion. As Admin of my board I can still edit them in HTML using the Source button, but ordinary members can't because opening up HTML posting to over 18k members isn't going to float, and we're not going to do it having just gone through a malicious DDoS and hacking attempt. It's also an ugly kludge to the problem that would paralyse a great proportion of members who don't have the first clue what HTML is. My suggestion would be to add the photo/picture URL to the double-click "Add Link" dialog and kill 2 birds with one stone. One extra input in the box, and you've got a lot more flexibility. I'd be surprised if this is the first time it's been mentioned though. I look forward to some feedback on my suggestion Mike. http://www.britmodeller.com/forums
