This is minor,
When you logout from the Portal Page and then log back in, you should be directed back to the Portal Page not the Forum Page.

By default phpBB redirects the user to the main forum page upon logout.
Ref.: https://tracker.phpbb.com/browse/PHPBB3-15963

However, with a simple extension that does not modify the core code we can overcome this lack. It costs nothing.

One of the improvements is:
when I bold, italicize or underline a passage, the passage stays highlighted so I can easily add a second bold, italicize or underline.

This is good.
Now, if we could only add a "World Peace, True Love and Happiness" function. 8)

The older version of the software allowed multiple text modifications and for some reason about five years ago stopped allowing multiple modifications to selected text. I am glad to see the capabilities have returned. :)

On the mobile version, can the box where the user name is listed be moved up so that I don't have to scroll past a lot of 'stuff'? The pc version has the user name information right on top. I realize that we are dealing with a much smaller screen

Oh but you can! Just click on private messages, enter "6" on your keyboard, then hang up.

Tried that, didn't work. NO error message. Next I'll try the Wizard's incantation; then "Sacrifice a goat and lay the entrails over the keyboard". 8)

If you are referring to the Wizard's incantation from "The Wizard of Id", it's as follows:

"Frammin' at the jim jam
Frippin' at the krotz"

We used to use that to fix Burroughs minicomputers when the MTR failed us (which was rarely)

I was referring to The Wizard in the comic strip "Shoe". Not sure if it would work the same. They rarely reveal their incantation ahead of time, a copyright and Union job-protection sort of thing. 8)

Is there an ETA when we can expect the "Real Name List" to be restored or some facsimile thereof :?:

Sorry Doc, I'll try and get on it this week. Nothing affecting the ETA other than me getting off my butt & updating the SQL query that builds it.

The dIsplay size of the DS Site pages are compressed on my Windows 10 notebook. The display size for the DS Site on my iPad is fine.
I cannot figure out how to return the PHPbb pages to a normal display size?
I sure the fix should be something simple.
Help Please, :)

FIXED: :oops:

Started up IE and all was well. Went back to Chrome and it was the tab Zoom setting. Apparently Chrome remembers the Zoom setting for specific sites. Oh well.

On the portal page, your entry comments about letting you know of errors, etc.

"If you have encounter" should read "If you have encountered"
