    Thanks, I found that too after I realized it sounded optional from G42's comment

    I think I'll like the new version better once it's finished, as the search function seems to work like it's supposed to, but for now I'll probably still use this one until it's done.

One more question—I’m on a mobile device (iPad mini w/Brave browser, though it’s the same on Safari too) and I was wondering if there’s any way to get back to the main forums or general bag section from within a post without having to go to the Menu, click Forums, then General Bag Discussion? If not, could there be?

    Ah, you're in the new theme that I don't think is 100% ready yet though I could have missed the announcement (I'm in the middle of packing up and moving, so things (and my brain) are hectic).
    Darcy - see post above, we do indeed seem to be missing the navigation in the new format
    If it’s still a work in progress then no worries, I just wasn’t sure if there was something wrong with my side of things. Thank you!

    After you read this post, try clicking on General Bag Discussion up there... That should bring you back to the top of this subForum (not this thread)....
    That's how I cycle through to read all the latest posts for threads in a given subForum. If you click on the Tom Bihn Forum, it brings you to the top menu of all the subForums.

    Is there some kind of threshold for that? I feel bad when I do it because I never know when it's going to happen and then it's too late.
    TB is looking into what triggers it, just hang in there, we usually catch them within a couple hours.

    Okay, thank you.

    Yeah, sorry, it didn't let me finish my edits from the first time around. I didn't realize it would lock it again.

    Thank you!

    Sorry for wording it poorly. I had commented, then went back to edit it and that's when it was flagged. So it does sound like the same as the others.

    Thanks for the approval Darcy!
