    The forum icons

    Where can I find the "key" that explains the icons that surround each of the posts?

    (I just noticed that some posts have more than others too)

    Scroll down in each subforum, and you'll notice a legend on the bottom-left of your screen.

    Yes, on the bottom-left, but not on all pages. And a couple of useful icons are not even in that legend, but see the attached.

    I was referring to the icons in the attached....BUT, I see if I hover over them (on the pC) the explanation is displayed.
    It doesn't do that on my smartphone (there's no cursor to "hover") - which I'm using most of the time to read the forums.

    Thanks

    Don't know about the first, viewing on a smartphone as well, but the middel is the rep. button. The last is the report button, if someone has been naughty..

    Have you considered to use Tapatalk when surfing the forum, it works really well..

    Edit: Back on my computer, the first one, is to bookmark the post

    Yah, thanks Kim. Those are: "Bookmark Post" (You can find your bookmarks in the "settings" page later), "Add to this user´s reputation" (Speaks for it self) and "Report Post" (Please use this if you encounter spam or inapropiate content in general - Admins are notified instantly by mail, and can take the necessary measures)

    And in regards to the mobile viewing, there are now several options, and vB just released 4.1.6 with nothing but improvements to mobile viewing. But since rumors are that vB 4.1.7 will be out next week already, we´re probably gonna wait for that before upgrading. But to the point, when the new vB options is installed, I plan on creating a thread with all the different options. Free vs. Commercial, Android vs. iPhone/iPad, etc.

    But sometimes there's a fourth: Add Infraction to KimArndt (for instance). What does this do?

    Uhhm... that´s only visible to admins and moderators, and is a way to "warn" members with bad behavior, once they get X number of warnings, they´ll be banned for X days from the forum. To the best of my knowledge, that system have only been used once (on a spammer) to test the functionality, and it´s not something that we plan on using

    LOL, yes. And since we´re not planning on using it anyway, it´s just been disabled for both admins and mods
