Re: Change to URLs in Messages
I want to move the board in a positive direction and avoid moves in the wrong direction, but this doesn't give me much to go on. Can you be more specific?

If it slows the board loading, then it is undesirable, esp regarding mobile access on 4G or slower.

It might be better to substitute a generic "title" -- "See here for link information"

or "This link provides information"

Another nagging problem I seem to be having is that when I select a green arrow on the topic list it goes to mid message a couple posts away from mid listed - I have to search for the ID'd number.

Note, I use Firefox on windoze 10 machine.

Enjoy

Just to be sure we're on the same page, it only slows two board functions: previewing a message, and posting a message. The slowdown isn't noticeable in most cases, but some websites are slow, so loading data from them (apparently the correct technical term is "scraping") like the title can take a few seconds.

Another nagging problem I seem to be having is that when I select a green arrow on the topic list it goes to mid message a couple posts away from mid listed - I have to search for the ID'd number.

Note, I use Firefox on windoze 10 machine.

I'm betting that this only occurs when viewing a page containing tweets. Would it be possible to verify whether that is the case? I'm aware of this problem and haven't figured out a way to fix it yet. The tweets load dynamically after the page has already been scrolled to the right place, causing the page to scroll further down. Hmmm, I wonder if I can lock scrolling while the tweets load.

It does occur with tweets, but it was occurring before they were implemented. Possibly having to do with large or numerous photos?

Re: Change to URLs in Messages
I've put some time into this issue the last couple days and haven't found a solution yet. I'll be on vacation the next couple weeks and won't have any time for this until I get back.
