    A much awaited change in the "Unaccounted Airmen..." thread series by Henk/Alex Smart.

    A total of 867 threads dating from 1940 till mid 1942 were started earlier without the "YYMMDD" prefix. All the threads have now been updated with the Year-Month-Date prefix. Going forward once google indexes the site, the searching of a thread should be easy just by entering the date keyword in the format of YYMMDD

    Another feature added.

    if searching by date in the CWGC database , You will see a link added to the "Unaccounted" thread from the forum just before the table of results.. eg http://www.rafcommands.com/database/...ate=1945-01-22

    Hi Jagan,

    It's been a while, but I'm still around... :)

    I tried logging on to the site with my phone and noticed that it fit the screen at first. The text was still a bit on the small side but I notice the site still isn't responsive - when I enlarge the view, it doesn't adjust (not html 5 I guess). I know, I know... one step at a time. :)

    Also - and you have probably answered this before - are you able to buy the non-www version of the domain? I forgot to enter it properly and I got another ad site pushing me to service files, ancestry etc.

    I hope to get back to this war soon, but I am still working on the first one these days. Here is the site of the group I am spending my time with. I edit their print magazine, which only comes out a few times a year.

    cobwfa.ca or www.cobwfa.ca (we have both domains).

    All the best to everyone. I will try to keep in touch.

    Hi David,


    The forum listing and the forum listing with threads list do come up responsive

    https://www.facebook.com/rafcommands...e=3&permPage=1

    The Single Thread view showing posts however is still not working as it should.. i have almost given up!

    Thanks on the tip on the non-www domain.. Let me get fixed with the service provider.

    -Jagan

    Implemented a "Thank You" System for the post.

    A quick way of saying Thanks - in the lower left portion of the post there is a "Thanks" Icon that can be used.

    Multiple people can express their appreciation without creating additional "Thank you" posts

    Hi Jagan, thanks for introducing this new feature.
    I think it might be find useful by some members in some particular cases but I would still prefer an individual post with "thank you" which seems to me more "personal".

    Hi Jagan,
    Might be a good idea but my first reaction is the same as Pavel's. Also, a post quite often includes a bit more than the 'thanks' message and keeps the conversation moving forward.
    Speaking as a dinosaur, the echo of Sociail Media in a 'thanks button' will take some getting used to but let's see, you may have added a popular tool.
    So, what do others think?

    Exactly Bruce, my first thought was "Thanks" button is like a "Like" button on Facebook for example.
    It is easy to click on a button, but the other thing is to write a proper reaction.

    Well it looks like I am also a dinosaur:-)

    But let's see - I am not against this feature - we can offer an option to those who may like it.
