    I do see updates in the freshness column without fail – after I refresh the page.

    I do ”’not”’ have anything like page refreshes being pushed out periodically, which would eliminate the need for manual page refresh but introduce other issues, particularly when posting comments! (Say you are in the middle of composing a comment when the pushed refresh happens – not good!).

    I’m not sure what you are asking here. If you go to The Compiler, which is where the top menu bar item ‘The Compiler’ under ‘docs/videos/slides’ gets you, there was a link at the top of that page to the forum topic since the video was posted.

    There should be an editing toolbar above where you type in your post. The left button labeled ‘b’ starts bold, so put your cursor where you want the bold part to start, then click the button. When I did it, I got the tag <strong> rather than <b> for bold.

    I looked this up on the bbPress support forum, and bbPress has a restricted set of allowed html tags for anybody other than admins for security reasons. Surprisingly, <b> was not on that list.

    Indeed they have the same indent level for me.

    I need some time to find the number of characters to indent per level and likely adjust the indent per level to fewer characters. Otherwise, the fairly deep replies will be very narrow and less than readable.

    We do not currently have any WordPress plugin installed to limit comment length, so your post should not have been any trouble. I have not checked, but I believe a number of other postings that were accepted by our site may be longer than what you describe.

    In particular, Will Edwards posting is way longer than 1200 characters.

    If I had your error, I would exit my browser, restart it and try again.

    Thanks for persevering to get this to us. I missed changing over those 2 links, they should work now.

    bbPress (the forum software) comes with a default time of 10 minutes before editing of a particular post is not allowed. We upped that to 20 minutes due to the type of material we discuss here, but could make it longer.

    Yes, I too have noticed the single character column display on my smart phone. To work around, I simply rotate the phone and it goes into landscape mode.

    I will take a look around the WordPress and bbPress (the forum plugin) style sheets to see if there is a parameter I can tweak. WordPress actually goes into a completely different mode of style sheet for smart phone display in landscape mode, and the particular theme we used as a base has some other issues that I have filed bbPress tickets on.

    This is a test of a reply to a reply to check if threading works.

    I will take a look at it, but before changing over to WordPress I did a fair amount of research. The bbPress plugin impresses me as still being “young”, in that some features that I would have thought obvious (like subscription to the entire forum or a forum category) are not yet implemented. From browsing the bbPress trac site I see that they have thought about implementing this “when they have time…”.

    In fact, from looking at their trac site I see that being able to subscribe to new topics in a forum was only released in Dec 2013.

    OK, now I am seeing what you are saying. This is a php coding error of some sort… I will take it up with the bbPress folks.

    And until we get an update to bbPress 2.5.3, remember to check the “Notify me…” check box before submitting if you don’t want to be Unsubscribed!
