    Robin posted the above some hours ago. As is my usual habit I clicked on the “8 hours 43 minutes” link on the forum contents page which normally takes me to the last post in the thread so annotated.

    On this occasion it took me to the Reply-To: form, the one into which I am now typing. This behaviour was reproducible.

    My guess is that Robin’s post is the last one on the page and the javascript has a fence-post error which led it to create a new page.

    Also if I click on the post number next to my post
    https://britastro.org/forums/topic/new-website-feedback/page/5#post-609928
    it takes me to the top of the next page instead of to the post. It should point to

    We are told that BBCodes can be used to format our postings. I am one of those (very few?) weird people who have memorized a few such codes, such as [_i] [_/i] (underlines added for clarity) for italicizing intermediate text. I doubt that there are many other oddities like me. So, two questions:

    1) Would it be possible to provide a pointer to TFM for BBCodes for easy reference when posting and/or replying?
    2) Is it possible to provide buttons for pointy-clicky encoding of regions of text such as many other fora provide? See http://www.mersenneforum.org for an example where I post rather often if you want to see what I mean.

    And while I am on the subject: a preview-before-posting button would be nice too. Four edits in my earlier post could have been avoided …
