A few changes?

Nothing important but maybe worth mentioning.

Firstly "Mark all forums read" is it possible that that link is tied to a page refresh so the user doesn't have to do that manually?

Second is it possible to have text that is highlighted in the "Quick Reply" carry over to the full editor?

As I said minor but nice to have.

Re mark all read, not sure I follow what you mean by tied to a page refresh?

Re the Quick reply function, as things stand if you start a reply in there and click full editor it will load the text in the full editor. Or do you mean something else?

When I Click on "Mark forums read" on the home page the dialog box comes up to say its Information Forums have been marked as read. The home page still shows the recent threads as read until you refresh the page by clicking on the Gubu.ie home page link.

With the quick editor I regularly find myself composing a post in the quick editor then switching to the full editor because I'm adding a link, picture etc. The point when I realise I need to do that is normally when I have highlighted text which I loose when I click on the Full Editor & Preview button. In another place back when it worked anything highlighted in the quick reply was also highlighted when you moved to the full editor.

I get you now, thanks. Unfortunately neither of these changes achievable without installing further extension modules to the phpbb installation. I am trying to keep the additional modules to a minimum if possible. For changes like this, not sure it warrants new modules at the minute, as if I'm correct it's more of a minor inconvenience.

Only a minor inconvenience and probably not even that. Only mentioned it as I'm waiting for the grass outside to dry a bit more so I can go and cut it.
