Mod links...

Mod links....

Is there a forum style which doesn't have moderator profile links under each forum title, I visit Si's profile quite alot :(

I know what you mean.
I complained recently about the size of the "buttons". It's bad enough with a track pad on a laptop, but trying to make my chubby finger select a tiny button displayed on an iPad Mini or Mrs Mick F's Android is a bit too accurate for me.

It's very easy to select the wrong thing. :oops:

The link to the poster under the title is redundant, as the profile on the right has links too.

I'll see if there's an easy fix to disable the link under the title.

This is on the forum lists, rather than the thread lists inside a forum.

The Mod links are "annoying" - if they could be right aligned then that would help...

Ah, I see. I've turned off the display of moderator names for each Forum, as they don't add much useful value and are rather-too-easily clicked on as you point out.

If anyone would like to see the moderator names back, let me know!

And I thought that it was 'cos you liked me (shuffles off to dark corner to cry).

Have you done more than that? Everybody's names now appear black and unclickable (rather than blue and clickable) at the top of their posts like they do where someone is no longer a forum member.

That's okay, thought something was broken

I do, just not enough to stalk you!

Much easier to poke at the right link now - thanks...
