Problem with duplicate thread names (need unique thread IDS)

Hey guys,

Sites lookin good so far. I've just posted a new topic in the introductions section and because it has the same thread name as another thread, it also has the same link and is redirecting to the old thread. Guess you need to either have a nag about duplicate thread names (short term) or create unique thread IDS (better).

In the meantime, can someone rename my thread so it can be read :p

Also, I tried to PM 1mak however it displayed connecting in the bottom left (chrome) and then did nothing.

Cheers mate, appreciate the prompt response. Also while I'm at it, theres some interesting things going on when mobile browsing. Presumably aware of it but just in case... when you zoom in the top bar zooms right in (fine up to a point) and when selecting this text box it zooms in automatically to the box and so the formatting goes really whacked and unusable unless you zoom out. See image here http://www.downthunder.com.au/mates/TC.Barky/albums/123/pic/804 also I can't seem to get image insertion working using mobile.

Don't take these the wrong way, fantastic looking site just little quality of life things I'm noticing :-)

Nah all good. I appreciate every feedback I can get to make it smooth. Getting everything running spotless is something I see as a good challenge. So, keep it coming I try to fix it one by one. :) Mobile version is something I work on every now and then as I as well want to finish missing functionality first. But since heaps of people coming from facebook with their mobile phones I try to focus that more. Just need more hours a day or a bigger team.

Hah yeah, fair enough. It runs very smoothly on desktop and the formatting is all really nice. I'll let you know if I spot anything else :) also, I'd be interested in submitting some technical articles on a few things - how might I go about that?

Would like to write up something on UHF use and a couple of other things here n there.

Oh that sounds good. I am working on a form to submit Workshop Tutorials at the moment. Will be finished asap. :)

Another issue I have found is, I cannot see any video other than Jay Leno's garage. It appears there may be videos there, but can't find them. Also, how to delete duplicate vehicles in the garage? Still a forum novice and stuffed it up, sorry.

Hey Stu,Sorry for the late reply on your comment. We're fixing both issues in the upcoming version of the DownThunder platform which is planned for the 1st of June (Thursday). Appreciate your feedback and patience. :)
