    So, one of the main reasons we put up this new version of GiH was to prevent spam. In the last version we were getting 100+ spam registrations per day and going through them to find genuine ones was becoming a pain in the backside.

    Since coming here there has been 1 spam registration we know of. Now, in order to tighten it up even further any comment with a link in it will be held in a queue for moderation – unless it’s by a regular poster.

    This *should* work but if you are a regular poster and find that a comment doesn’t appear, give me time to sort it out! 😉

    By the way, if you do find spam or porn or whatever you can REPORT it using the report link on the post.

    Why, do you want to keep it for yourself? :yahoo:

    While you are tweaking, PLEASE make it easier to go back to the unread posts. Example I open up GIH…there is a list of unread topics. I click on one and read it over say two pages…..then the problem starts. How to get back to the original group of unread posts.

    Can’t you have a floating thingie as a side bar to click on to get back? Sort of like that nice red bell. Or, how about a tab at the bottom of the page. anything but this blankness.

    Can you click the “REMEMBER ME” box when you log in on the iPad? That’ll keep you logged in even if you leave the site.

    iPad for me.

    Ian mine remembers my password and I have saved it in safari as a bookmark that sits up in the menu box under the address box.

    For the new ipadders you can also put a bookmarked button onto your home page. What you could do is in safari open where you make bookmarks with that rectangle thingie with the arrow sticking out on the top right, and choose the add to Home Screen  option, the one with the cross.  That puts a button on the home screen you can just click to get into GIH.

    Remember to click View New Posts so that the bookmark is on that page. Saves time. Just mentioning it for Stella etc. It took me ages to find out I could make buttons that look like apps on the home page.

    image so this is how my page looks when I open on iPad using the GIH button you can see up top. Haven’t figured out how to shorten the label yet.
