I'll try to clarify:

I am talking about the "last post" link, not the "last page" link. Last post link is easy to click and it gets you to the last page, too.

The red arrow points to the "last page" link.
The blue arrow points to the "last post" link.

This is exactly what I'm asking about. On mobile it is not this easy. The red arrow shows what I'm talking about. On my desktop, it's fine. On mobile, not so much. It's so small that it's impossible to click it without a tool.

Sorry for being difficult but it is what it is.

Edit: It probably would have helped if I actually read your post. I apologize, Pekka. I would consider me a moron, if I were you. lol

I must seem really thick. Well, I am...seriously.

It finally hit me that just clicking the blue arrow (where it points) got me what I wanted.

Sorry for derailing, over my stupidity.

No problem, good to have it solved!

Great list and update on what to expect with the new version.

Still no email notification on PM or Threads, or did I miss that in the list? I know shortly after the 1.1 release email notifications were supposed to be a top priority, but I also know that priorities can change, especially when it comes to prioritizing fixing something vs. adding a feature.

Also, does the password reset page now use a secure connection? In the past, when I went to the page my web browsers did not give me any indication that it was a secure page.


7Dmk2, Tokina 12-24 f/4, Canon EF-S 18-135 f/3.5-5.6 IS STM, Canon 70-200 f/4L IS, lots of little stuff, flashes, stands, and almost enough brains to be considered dangerous :confused:

Because of all that, having an automated EXIF reading to fill the metadata and have a one-click add-to-gallery really has not much use if Flickr images won't co-operate with it. So, as I said I got frustrated on this, produced a theory how it could be possible, coded it and so AMASS 1.33 can get EXIF from any Flickr image (if the EXIF was read by Flickr in the first place, that is). It is not a "hack", just a logical procedure to emulate a human reading Flickr pages with a browser :). The end result is that all Flickr images can now have EXIF, and AMASS 1.33 will get it automatically after post submit.

So cool! I just can't fathom the amount of work you're putting into AMASS. More kudos for a job well done!

PM email notifications are coded already, but I can't update just parts of 1.33 (too many components changed minutely) so it has to wait for the full update, sorry.

Also, does the password reset page now use a secure connection? In the past, when I went to the page my web browsers did not give me any indication that it was a secure page.

AMASS has no https pages (the old forum did not have either). I may add some later, but I do not think they are really needed. Login process obfuscates username and pass lightly and member session cookies have both random name and content so sniffing traffic is not very easy with AMASS. But as always, the best option for security is avoid using login and management pages like password change page with open Wifi connections.

As the release of 1.33 is getting very close now, here's some things missing from the initial list:


AMASS can get EXIF from resized Flickr images, too.


"DEAL DONE" labels
Search: when a search result is from marketplace forums, "DEAL DONE" etc. labels are shown. Those labels are also added to all thread listings in FYEO.


Sticky: Show stickies command is stored for each forum separately, no cookies used any more.


Thread peek popup added (beta, optional: need to set it on in FYEO).


Gear and Gallery:
gear page lists 20 most popular ISO, aperture, shutter speed and focal lenghts used and each has link to gallery filtered by that item. Also, each lens has apertures top 20 list, and cameras have top 20 ISOs and apertures. Each lens has top 20 cameras list, and each camera has top 20 lenses list. All those lists have links to a corresponding gallery, so you can see a gallery of "7D with Canon 100m macro", or gallery of "ISO 12800" photos, , or gallery of "aperture 1.2" photos, or gallery of "Sony α7R with ISO 1000" gallery etc.


Ratings: added a full detailed ratings page for each gear.


Fixed the "MDJAK index page link" bug.


Thread pages have status links ("Go to first NEW", "go to first unread"..) for new posts, just as in thread listings.


Some very minor stylistic changes, some font cases changed (no all caps in commands) etc.


Added an announcement system (for members only, appears next to notifications box, when the announcement is clicked (to view the announcement thread) it is no longer shown.


Editor has some minor changes:
MORE TOOLS contains now icons for most commands (I use Google material design icons mostly), also the url command can stay open (as other toolboxes) if you move it before submitting it. That way entering several named links is a one click job. Also, I have removed the green undo/redo icons and put undo/redo as "low key" simple arrow setup at the bottom of the toolbox, and the undo steps counter is only visible if you click undo or redo, better that there's no "moving" stuff on the editor.


All editor command icons have now a mouseover state (slightly enlarged).


Member gallery browser position and UI improvements
Member gallery browser (on thread pages) is by default at the bottom now. You can move it to left, right and bottom (position is stored in a cookie)


FOLLOW THREAD command UI
has been corrected so that there is no confusion possible. See https://photography-on-the.net …showthread.php?​p=17531081 for the flow chart.


Quoting:
uploaded photos that are not inserted to post via ATTACH tags are added to quote as ATTACH tags.

Quoting:
All uploaded photos (hosted photos) have now a thumbnail in quotes, with link to original post and forum info. If the photo is from G&N forum and quoted outside it, it is only shown to those who have chosen to view the G&N forum.


Forum filtering:
Forum filtering page has some changes to usability.


Gallery thumbnails and G&N:
All G&N thumbs are shown normally, as there is no reason not to: G&N is hidden from new members by default (see about forum filtering below) and it is always filtered out from guests. When you decide to show G&N forum, you will see the thumbs, if you decide to hide it you won't see any G&N thumbs.


Forum filtering and G&N:
Glamour & Nude forum is now hidden from new members (all who register after 1.33 is online). When you click to show G&N in forum filtering page in FYEO, you need to confirm that you accept that you will see nudity and erotic photography there.


Add to gallery:
Mobile cache errors (bytemobile) are now handled when adding a photo to gallery.

Thanks!

The "grey bar notification" a.k.a "title hint notification" was mentioned in https://photography-on-the.net …/showthread.php​?t=1421854, it will work on 1.33 :)

Those of us with programming backgrounds recognize the horrendous amount of work you're doing here. But I am sure everybody who uses POTN thanks you for your efforts.
