I'm still seeing a difference with and without the www
Things I have tried:
Cleared the cache,
Rebooted
Tried a different browser
Tried a different Computer
Tried a different DNS server.
Tried a linux machine.
Tried a different ISP (Mobile Hotspot)
And I still see http://mailwatch.co.uk going to plesk and http://www.mailwatch.co.uk coming here. I not trying to be a smart arse, just fault finding. :geek:
I'm thinking that other people may not be able to find the new site. :)

Only really noticed this now - did the forum not move with DST?

I've seen that intermittently (going to Plesk) but usually a page refresh clears it.

No problems today though?

During the rebuild, the domain was set up on my business server so that an explanatory holding page could go up and while Timbo fought with the French provider. Once that was resolved, the domain was set up on the new server. Merk still controls the DNS and, quite conceivably, there might be an issue with one of the records.

My business server should redirect automatically. I have just checked and all the settings seem to be in order. As it literally pays the mortgage, I am reluctant to mess around with it.

Hopefully an easy-to-answer question: I note you can simply mark all notifications as "read", but in the interest of good housekeeping - can you actually delete them?

Is there a way to mark all threads/an entire subforum as read? I admit this is my own fussy housekeeping but when I see that there are unread threads in a subforum and I go to look at how a convsersation has developed only to discover the unread thread in question is on page 4 from half a year ago, it is a mild irritation.

Yes, there is and it works for both laptop and phone (tested with Firefox on a W10 laptop and Opera on a 'droid phone)

If you click/tap on the titles in the red headings for the subforums, over to the right you will see a grey button appear marked "mark subforums read", thus.

Tap/click on that and all subforums are indeed marked as read.

At a lower level, you can mark all topics within a subforum read easily on a laptop.

If you go into a subforum as below, a "Mark Topics Read" button appears - click that and it is done.

What I am yet to find out is how to do that on my 'phone, which uses Opera for its browser.
