I have a question / suggestion for the "shortcuts" to pages in large topics.  Like this:

 

 

 

 

How hard would it be for you to change from presenting shortcuts like this:

 

1 | 2 | 3 | ... | 743 

 

to like this:

 

1 | 2 | 3 | ... | 741 | 742 | 743 

 

 

 

i.e. including "n-1" and "n-2" rather than just "n".

I'd like this too.

 

I'd also like a go to page edit box.

Would like Preview box prior to posting/submitting. This would include Youtube and image previews as well as text. Is it also possible to have text colours ? Also I can never get Underline to work.

Colour? Yes, it is possible. But I don't think it's advisable.

Possible for you, but stripped out for us mere mortals!

I just posted that as an example of the bullshittery that would become.

Also, what about sizes and fonts? Can you imagine how hard to read this?

Oh, yes, sure. The question! I am not sure - I have to look at the code but it probably would require a few changes to make sure things don't explode. Will look.

You're taking me right back to Geocities days.  May as well put a webring link at the bottom of the page!

OK I get your point BUT would like Preview box prior to posting/submitting. At the moment if I am going to do long posts I create in TextEdit, correct, copy & paste, then post, a bit laborious don't you think ?

 

Plus Underlining does appear in Reply box but does not appear in actual post. eg. I underlined posting/submitting
