Forum is not user friendly

Postby K1566 » 5 Mar 2020, 2:28pm

Having posted on here a few times I don't find it very easy to use. Having posted an advert how do I remove it should I wish to?
They're us no obvious link to my posts.
I may be just thick but it's quite frustrating

Link to your posts: click or hover to open the "≡ Quick links" menu top left ish in the header, then "Your posts".

To remove your own post, view it and click the X in its top right - this may not be possible if there are replies. If you really want it removed, click the ! in its top right and ask the moderators to delete it for you, but they may not have time or may feel that it should remain for some reason.

Adverts are removed after 30 days of no activity anyway, I think.

This forum works with the well-known phpBB forum software.

If you get stuck with something, ask here or Google what you want to do with the keyword "phpBB" included.

I have removed your advert that was edited to say 'withdrawn'. Please let me know if you would like it restored to the for sale board.

I'll never complain about phpBB they have it sussed -- I've seen the results of when the numpties take control. Bikeradar is a classic example of how to [mess] it up. A couple of other hobby sites I was on did the same -- they are gone forever.

I think it works really well.

Singletrack forum is much more annoying.
