The new version of our forum software, SMF 2.1, also introduces realtime alert capability.

If you have configured your notifications to allow them, you will receive an alert when posts are made to topics you are following, when you have been quoted, and when you have been mentioned.

If your browser supports alerts, it may prompt you whether you wish to allow VGuitarForums to send you alerts.  If you allow it, you will also get a brief popup on your browser, e.g., if you are on another site on another tab. 

It's all under your control...

You may want to review your notification settings.  To do so, click on your profile menu at the upper left (where your name is) & select Notifications.  There you can select which items you want to see real-time vs by email (or not at all!).

I noticed when I posted an mp3 clip, it was available as a file down load as usual. Somehow it was also there with a play bar so it could be played without downloading. I did that somehow by accident but when I tried again I could not get that sound bar.

How is that done?

If you post a link to an mp3, to a location that has a full URL (starts with https://) and ends with .mp3, the soundbar will be auto-inserted.

E.g.: https://localhost/80vgf21/index.php?msg=257369

I posted a sound clip on reply#157. The file loaded as both a down load and a sound bar without a ULR link to that clip.

Ah, gotcha. 

You'll see that there's a dividing line near the bottom.  *ALL* attachments are shown at the bottom, below that line, including a thumbnail depending on the file type. 

If you wish to include the attachment within the body of your post, above the line, you can click on the INSERT button on the attachment upload form.  You can type text above or below the inserted attachment; it is part of the post.  (E.g., if you want to insert photos throughout a "how-to" post...)

You get the soundbar if you do an INSERT for an mp3 attachment as well!

Ever since the last Forum update, If I go to page 3 of new posts, I get a screen error.
I think it's just on my IPad, but not sure
I miss a whole page of posts when this happens

I'm not seeing this - even on my iPad.  A screenshot/error message would help!
Address the process rather than the outcome.  Then, the outcome becomes more likely.   - Fripp
