Could I just ask?
When adding to a thread, did we not use to be able to see the previous posters posts?
Now, on my Ipad, if I am writing, I cannot scroll back up to note a person’s name.
Has this been happening for a while, or is it relatively new?

I can still do it on my laptop and mobile.

I can still scroll back on my iPad Auntieflo. - just as well as I often need to check the spelling of the OP! I did it for you now. - was it aunty or auntie??

I seem to have the memory span of a goldfish these days!

Do you mean you have the thread all to yourself? ie kust your post?

Don't forget, you can 'flip' a thread to get back quickly to the OP.

Thanks all
Well just checking, and it seem OK now, but on a previous thread Urmstongran, I couldn’t see above the reply box. I know what you mean about the memory, that’s why I need to check.
I’ll go away now and drink my tea that has appeared 😊

Once you've previewed your post you can't scroll back. If you don't preview it shouldn't be a problem.

Baggs, I think you’ve cracked it!
But, why can’t you preview and check, because that is precisely what I sometimes need to do, checking a name/ spelling etc?
Perhaps I should ask the techies. Do you think they are listening?

Hi Auntieflo,

Thanks for your suggestion - we'll pass this onto the tech team to see if it's something that's possible. grin
