    Default shout box

    is the shout box supposed to constantly update? Also some threads have text that links to thread but others don't. Can someone explain this feature please?

    The shout box updates when a thread is replied to.

    Can you show me an example of a thread that links to another thread? Sounds like someone just linking to some information already on here.

    Ensure you don't have any sort of ad-blocker blocking javascript after clearing your cache/cookies and logging back in.

    It's an issue only affecting yourself from what I understand so it's very likely to be a local issue.

    Thought so but at the time of starting the thread some of the items in Shout box did not have the red text to go to the thread. Just tried it again and it seems ok tonight but still not auto updating.

    My non expert question - have you tried another browser? Just to see if the same thing happens?

    I keep up to date via the quick links menu at the top, then drop down to 'todays posts'

    Sometimes a thread will have been moved eg spam, but this would just bring up an error page as you won't be able to access where it has gone.

    The only other time text is black in the box is when it is a comment from one of the members chatting to others, like instant chat.

    Sorry bud, that was directed to the user in the quote, TomTom.

    It's ok, I've updated his signature to erase any confusion.

    I lunn, you're aware that the shoutbox is updated with new posts? If there aren't any new posts during the time you're viewing the shoutbox then you won't see any changes.

    Could that be the cause of your issues?

    You can also use the scroll bar on the right of the box to scroll down to new posts.

    If you scroll right to the bottom this should auto-refresh.
