    Hi Admin I would like to know if you have control over focus in the replay window? I don't really know where it ends up but in every window I open it is not in the typing window. Reply, search, and quick reply. That would make my life easier if you could do that. I just start typing. (I look at my hands) and I look up and I have nothing. The other option is for me to relearn to type and I have been trying that for many years. Old dyslexics can't be taught apparently.

    Also if you have any control over it being able to sort the Member listing by member would be awesome!!

    KWhite,

    If you want to see what a certain member has posted, you can click on their name and it takes you to their profile and on the right it has the messages they started and responded to. Just click on that and it shows you their history on here with their postings.

    Does this help any?

    kwhite, are you talking about having to left click in the boxes to be able to type words. I guess I do not think about it anymore, it is just a habit :wink: I always look for a flashing cursor no matter what site I am on, some are there automatically some are not.... :roll:

    I added the auto focus.

    For new posts/pm it should focus on the subject. For replies, it should focus on the message text area.

    Please test it out. Hopefully, it will be working properly.

    Sure that is geek speak about where the cursor (the blinking line) lands when you start a new thread or reply to one. Have you ever noticed that when you click on reply and the window opens you then had to click again on the box where you type before you start to type? Well now when you hit reply the cursor will already be in the box where you type and you do not have to click again to start typing. Where the cursor begins is called focus. I have been helping develop computer programs for 10 years now and these are things I see that maybe others would not. I hope that helps.
