There is no app, but if you bring up the forum on Safari/Ipad and look to the right of the address bar there is a page icon with an up arrow. You can click and hold on that. A menu will drop down and there is an option for adding to homepage. Click on that and you'll have an icon on your ipad's screen. You can click on that and the forum will come up. It's similar to an app, but you get full forum function.Interesting. I haven’t been on the forum for some years, but all of a sudden, daily digests have started appearing in my mailbox, and its rekindled my interest. I do everything on an iPad these days and I’m using safari to access here. Is there an app that works well instead?
I like the new layout and software, well done.
Due to the software change the time zones are all at the default of London timezone. You can go to Preferences and set your time zone, and also while there you may want to check out when you receive an email alert, the daily email, and if you opt out of seeing the ads. Remember to save. Click on Preferences below.My time zone changed too.

You can turn off the adverts by going to your Preferences and checking the "Disable advertising" block.Yes thanks Angie. And you can stop the mass of adverts
I like the daily news though I'm not sure the missus approves. I'm spending breakfast reading the forum.
Is there a way to see if the addressee has read your message? with the old software the message moved from "outbox" to "sent" once it had been read. Thanks.Private Messages are called Conversations in this software.
1. To message/conversation a member you can click on their avatar and a box will come up with Start Conversation will show.

Just click on that button and when the title and message box open, fill in and click the Start Conversation button.
2. Deleting conversations - is now Leave conversation. And when you Leave a Conversation you can set it to allow a reply and you see it, or not allow replies and you are completely done with it.
Conversations on XenForo are private discussion threads as opposed to the email-like exchanges of phpBB or vBulletin. All conversations are private and cannot be read by Moderators, Administrators, or any other forum member.Thanks Marcros I've sent two different PM/conversations and would have expected replies but nothing forthcoming
Sorry, should have mentioned. I'm still using Win 8.1Which operating system and browser are you using? I have Mac and Win10 computers to use as test platforms and will try to duplicate what you see.
Which browser are you using? I no longer have a Win 7 computer, but I miss that operating system.On mine (an old Lenovo running Win 7 - yes, 7!!) there's a blue box saying something like "UKW would like you to enable push notifications". On EVERY page.
But I have, several times, in my Profile Preferences, YONKS ago! Need I worry/do anything else? (and do NOT - please - say "Change to Win 10!).
