Dear WRConnected Users: WOW! Our fourth "birthday"! We've grown so much over the past four years, and much of that is because of you, the amazing WRConnected Users. But like any other website, there are costs associated with running it. As some of you may already know, we accept donations. Some of you have made donations (thank you!). This helps cover some of the background costs associated with running this site. If every user were to donate $1 we would more than cover our yearly expenses. If WRConnected is useful to you, take a minute and help keep it online for another year. Any donation is helpful. Thank you.

Not seeing any kind of drop-down anywhere near the bottom of the page. Where are you seeing that?

It does seem that if you select Glowing as the theme, the option to switch disappears.

FYI when you click mobile at the top, the link on that page is still broken.

Did you try clearing all your cache on your mobile?

I think if you switch out of the "glowing" theme in the options section of your profile (http://www.waterlooregionconnected.com/u...on=options) the ability to switch back to mobile should reappear in the lower right as described.

OK, not so much of an issue, more of a suggestion.

When someone replies to someone's comment, or thread if they started one, there is no way of knowing who, if anyone, is replying to your comment.
Usually, I have to scan each thread to see where I posted and to see if there were any replies. Yet, today I found an old reply (from July 31) to me, asking me a question, but I never saw it because I must have skipped it somehow. If we had some sort of messaging system that let us know who has replied to a comment of ours, it would be great. Redflagdeals has something like that, as do other sites. Not sure if this site is able to do that or not though. Or perhaps it's in one of my settings but I can find it.

Maybe we should disable the glowing theme ...

That would probably be the better option. It makes it more difficult to manage bugs if people are using more themes. Limiting it to two (desktop and mobile) is probably not a bad idea.

As for getting reply notifications: I think that's a limitation of the forum software, but I could be wrong.

Adding MyAlerts should enable that capability:

So can we add that?

We'll need to wait for Spokes for that. Smile
