Am I missing something? On threads that do not have unread comments (not in bold), is it possible to change a setting to automatically go to the last comment? Right now I have to scroll to the bottom of the first page, click the last page arrow, then scroll to the bottom. This can be lengthy on older threads. When threads have unread comments, you are automatically directed to the latest comment when you click the thread. Thanks

On any device that isn't iOS, it's in account settings.
How do I close or delete a thread or post?

How come I can't read the thread "GT's for sale"? It says this thread is private and I can't figure out how to view it.

Not sure, I am a paying member though....

Go to the far right hand column, and click on the time for the last comment. For instance, yours was “today at 9:40am”. Takes you right to the last comment.

I believe there is one GT listed for sale. Its Eddie's 2006 Gulf car. Very Nice GT.

Great job so far....my only issue is figuring out how to edit a post I've made. I don't see an edit icon on my desktop or phone.

The internet lives forever. Only a moderator can delete replies or threads.

The forum software may limit the amount of time for editing. It's usually a forum wide setting that the owner/moderators can configure.

Screens don't "lock" on Android. If I scroll up the screen slides left. I think because the banner ad is double the screen width.

I thought maybe this is just the way it is, but the 4C forum just went to Xenforo and does not have this issue.

When I click "mark forums read," the confirmation box is sometimes off the screen. Have to scroll to find it. Annoying.

Chrome and Samsung browsers.

Here's a screen shot scrolled halfway to the left. Screenshot_20190615-170209_Samsung Internet.jpg

The "mobile skin" didn't work for me either, so when I open the page on my Android phone, I reload using the "request desktop" option and it works. However, if I magnify a portion of the screen (two-finger spread) and then move over to the "mark forums read" I too find the confirmation dialog way off screen. The browser wants to place the box in the center of the window, not the current view. I don't think the forum is at fault here. The same thing happens on many forums. And with multiple browsers. Try uploading a file and even find the upload dialog box. It scoots somewhere into the next county. PS I use Firefox.

When posting thread and wanting edit say a typo, do not have the 3 dots others have referred to for access to post editing?

Are you logged in? Sorry, had to ask.

The three dots is a drop down menu on mobile.

On PC, it says Edit.

I'm still blaming it on the double-wide ad. That also shifts the blue top bar to the center of a double-wide screen.

The page fits and locks correctly in landscape.

Fix the ad and the problem goes away.

The other mystery is why we get fed all the ads on Android (iOS too?), but not on PC.
