    Hi mods,

    I have noticed that if I go into someone’s profile to see what threads they have contributed to, the thread title mentioned you is no longer noted as a link, so it’s tricky to jump straight in to the thread in question. Just wondering if that is intentional or if it needs looking into. Thankyou !

    Hi Jacqui,

    Well spotted. I had noted a change too, but was still able to click on the date/time to go to the post, so I hadn’t chased it up earlier. Use the date/time for now (see italics below) – it will take you to the relevant post.

    e.g. Jacqui Middleton started the topic Thread titles no longer a link from forum profile pages in the forum Site Problems / Feedback 11 hours, 1 minute ago

    Noted, thanks @benny will do. ps I also notice it’s a bit of a mission to find a particular member now. Once upon a time there was a link that took you straight into members and you can search by partial username. Now that functionality seems to be gone, so unless someone is tagged in a post with an @ symbol it is tough to find them.

    The Search for members does still exist. I have always found the Members Search this way :-

    First click on your name – this takes you into the “members” area, but specifically into your Profile. The url will show this:-
    https://www.propertyinvesting.com/members/jacm/

    Now, in the address bar, simply delete the last five characters – jacm/ – and hit Enter. This takes you up a level into the “members” area where you will find Search in the top right-hand corner.

    Thanks @benny . Yes I eventually found it that way but wonder how many people would find their way to the members area in that way?

    Hi Jacqui,

    My question re above to Admin received an answer – in short, he agreed it once did have a link, but it was removed deliberately when PM spamming was a major problem years ago. And it has never been reinstated, largely for that reason.
