    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

    Minor Updates to forum template that we are familiar with.. it is now "Mobile Ready".. meaning no tiny font, no scroll bars etc.. Work still in progress

    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.

    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.
