Currently, when I click a link, it opens in the current tab rather than a new tab.
Maybe this is something in my chrome settings but I can't see it.

Oh and I still can't change my 'location' :wave:

For the first question, using Chrome, install Tampermonkey. If anyone else is reading, install Greasemonkey for Firefox.

Then go here once Tampermonkey is installed, and install this script. It will open links in a new window

Is it just me or has the size of the type on the forum main page (thread titles etc) got smaller in the last couple of days?

If I use chrome, Señor Google tracks the forum weirdness and suddenly I get ads for Asian Brides and Eastern European matchmaking services on my work browser :scared:

It's like your wife and your girlfriend; they should never meet

Just a quick one that someone might be able to help with

Installed the latest flat look style from this thread but I don't seem to have any symbols next to the threads on the main page?

I'm getting the below messages:

Apps, extensions and other scripts cannot be added from this website



And also a runtime error. Does that mean work have blocked it? i had no issues before today (my computer was restarted for updates).
I haven't tried at home yet.

Edit: I disabled and reabled it and it works.

Strange :thumbup:

Anyone using Triggers config and started seeing ticks recently?

1. So we have that little orange page to denote a thread with new posts.
2. Then we have the little orange page with a DOT to denote a thread with new posts, that you've posted in.

The first have retained their orange pages.
The second one has turned into blue ticks!! no DOT and not orange page

Anyone else?

EDIT: when I say orange page, maybe I mean bell? because I remember it brought back as part of the "bring the bells back" :lol: :picard:

The bells were shite and temperamental, so I went with:

- Blue dot denotes thread with unread posts
- Tick denotes thread you have posted in with unread posts
- nothing besides it denotes it's been read

Yeah I know, but the bells were such small graphics they were a bit a pain.
