Still does not work in Microsoft Edge. No way to post anything.

Not a great update if if you canít post messages after it rolled out, which is kind of a key task for a message board.

Like the look and feel, but the new mobile icons are a huge real estate hog. Instead of an icon, it's now a word which takes up significantly more space.

Did you try clearing your browser cache CTRL+F5?

The boxes for reply / quote look horrible on mobile. Who designed this?

Also what happened to the quoted messages? Looks horrible:
Florens, if you bypass or clear your cache on Mobile Safari, are you able to reply?

This change was implemented to make those functions more user-friendly for those who have not been on the forum for as long and thus may not understand the simple icons.

Did this by chance begin to display quoted posts in the correct format?

it's still not working on my iPad Pro. I can't quick reply (with or without quoting the post). reply, edit, etc.

Edit seems to work now.

Did you clear/bypass your cache?

I cleared the cache, and logged out and back in again, and it fixed the "no message box" issue.
Thanks for the fast fix!

Message box is back after clearing cache! However, I sincerely hope that not every single user of this forum that has been logged in before this update has to do this to be able to use simplified post box. Not the best implementation!

New buttons look nice on desktop, but can not say the same for the mobile version. Previous design was more compact, nice on devices with smaller screens.
