I'm sure that some of the expert web developers that were posting here a while ago could explain this better but the search icon does seem to be missing from this code:
Code:
<div class="p-nav-opposite">

I've increased the effect of that width button. Does that help at all now?
No. But the change in width was mega. It's like the top of the sceen with the POLITICS in it is all green accross the screen, but then it's like the next level down where you start with the line
Home on left, with Alerts on right and eveything else is indended (like it's a table. So when I increase the witch, I have it in an inch everything except the top green with the title Politics.

No clue what brower I've on the ipads. I'm on internet expplorer on the computer but I'll have a look via firefox.

I have the same problem with mobile: I cannot replicate the problem you are having either on an iPad in either vertical or horizontal display, or on an iPhone 8+. Again, depending on the viewport size, the label "Search" disappears but the magnifying icon for search remains.

As a workaround, if you scroll to the top of the page and tap Forums, can you see the Search Forums option in the subnavigation row?

I have

Home. F. NP and RP (missing Members)
Then
NP, Find T. Watched, MFS (missing Search forums)

This is when I click into Forums on a computer (laptop)

There seems to be an uptick in spam accounts (latest appears to be a licence spam) getting through.
Jmcc, I appreciate the gesture but it would be far more constructive and helpful if you could report at least one of the nuisance posts to alert staff to their presence and more importantly, where to find them.

Already did using the report function.

OK. Please try this for me:

I have temporarily enabled the default Xenforo style (this has no customizations so it won't look exactly the same).

Please select that style from the bottom left of the page.

Does that correct the problem of the missing search icon?
It's related to permissions.

You can see and access the search icons and screens when logged OUT.

But when logged IN, if you try access say /search/ or /members/ you get:

Oops! We ran into some problems.
You do not have permission to view this page or perform this action.

For now we can only run searches by typing directly in the url, e.g. Search results for query: oops

It's related to permissions.

You can see and access the search icons and screens when logged OUT.

But when logged IN, if you try access say /search/ or /members/ you get:

Oops! We ran into some problems.
You do not have permission to view this page or perform this action.

For now we can only run searches by typing directly in the url, e.g. Search results for query: oops
Bingo! Thank you! :)

Search was not enabled for just one group: Politics.ie Regular. Everyone else could use search.

Again - thank you for that. (y)

@Baron von Biffo @Emily Davison this should fix the problem for you.

Place has been going downhill for a long time but this is the killing blow for me.

Toodle pip folks, after 13 years enough is enough!

I didn't do anything but the Search box is now there. BTW welcome to p.ie. Very efficient service I must say. And Rainmaker too. Thanks.

It's not difficult - just a matter of changing one option - but that variable must be set forum wide, not for inviduaks. I reduced it to 10 from 20.
How do I find my posts within threads?

On the old site, when you went to a forum, you could hover over a thread reply number and it would tell you how many posts you had in the thread,

Then when you clicked on the thread reply number, a new window would open with all the users who posted on the thread and the number of posts they made.

Then you could find your own name and post number, and when you clicked on your name, a new window would open with all your own posts for that thread.

To recap, how do I find my posts within threads now?

Thank you.

Thank you.
If you click the search box in the upper right hand corner, a box appears with a number of options, within that box you will see an option that says 'Everywhere', click on that and it gives you further options, including an option to search 'This thread'.

Can we get more than 10 threads on new/recent posts.

He really puts me off not being able to see all the latest threads in 1 go.
