    Hi

    Not sure if this is a bug or per design.

    I receive the below message when attempting to post a smiley.

    You cannot post links or email addresses until you have 30 posts. This is to prevent spam. Sorry for the inconvenience!

    Hi

    Sorry, must have been me posting more then 1 smiley,

    Posted one smiley and it worked. Doesn't allow more then 1

    Also, when I click to add a smiley, another page opens with the message (javascript void (null) along with page cannot be displayed. The same happens if I click B, U, I to format a word as bold, Underline, Italics.

    Not causing me issues as it does allow me to perform the action but reporting incase you're not aware

    Me too. I assumed that it was a problem with my browser (IE) but obviously not

    I just tested; smileys and b/i/u seem to work fine on Chrome, but on IE another page pops up with "This page cannot be displayed".

    @Ian J is this the biggest technical problem you encounter on IE? None of the team use it, so any issues will pass us by.

    What about the forum developers? They would have tested on all browsers/devices surely?

    There a formatting problems on an small screen as well - try to view member info in portrait. This was reported over a year ago in the feedback forum.

    The issues with UKBF on mobile are well on my radar! There's a big Xenforo update coming in December that we're waiting on, and we've got some time booked in in the new year to start on bugs, mobile usability etc.

    In case you're not aware, also experience the same javascript: void(0) error when clicking the 'GOT IT' button within the cookies confirmation box which appears towards the top of the page
