    Unhappy Prev messages on post page

    The display of previous messages when you're making a post seems to have disappeared a few days back. I always found seeing them there rather helpful for quotes etc. Was there a reason for removing it?

    Yes, I found that strange, too. It's a pain having to open a second window to cut and paste quotes, or even just to refer to what previous posters said....

    Can we have this facility back, please?

    I liked and used that facility also. I suspect it may have been turned off to reduce the amount of message lookups needed, reducing the load on the host.

    There is no best host. There is only the host that's best for you.

    Ohhh don't blame me for that one... heh. I'd like it back to but have to find out if there was a reason for doing it and if there are reasons we can't have it again. 'Tis rather annoying, but saves me from typing too much

    Question

    Do you have any programmers working on patches for this board like Sitepoint has or you just install it as it is?

    Is e-mail notification turned off as well? I'm mainly asking because I'm not receiving any e-mails from WHT, and I'd like to know whether WHT is the problem or my POP3... (or whether I'm just the problem, as the case may be).
