Hi @Beate this should have been resolved now, our technical team was working on some updates and that caused this temporary issue. Please post again if you spot anything amiss.

Thanks

HI, I've just joined, and in drafting my first post realised that my username is not sufficiently discreet. Can you tell me how to change it please? Thanks.

Thanks, still trying to figure it all out!

If you have not already done so have a read through
https://forum.alzheimers.org.uk/attachments/quick-guide-to-talking-point-pdf.56532/

and for mobile/tablet use also read
https://forum.alzheimers.org.uk/threads/mobiles-and-tablets.104330/

There is a test thread where you can experiment with formatting, replying with and without quote, posting images etc
You won't be able to post links until you have made 10 posts, this prohibits you from including a quote which includes a link.

Hi. Can you tell me if it's possible to start a conversation with more than one person at once and if so how do you do it?

When opening the chats I always look for the small red number which indicates replies.
There appears a red number ( 1) but I’ve opened all my chat replies and the number remains. Where else should I look to cancel the number

By 'chat' do you mean conversation or forum?
Are you using a computer or a phone?
Any chance of a screen grab to show what you are seeing.

Ok. It seems to have gone now. It was there once I’d gone into the forum. I’m on both iPad and iPhone . I had to search around the Forum site and found a chat with a dot and that was it. I thought you could touch the red number and it would take you direct to the reply

The number in red that indicates a quoted reply to a post should go once you read the reply. It will reappear if you use a browser back button to navigate. The next screen refresh will update. I am guessing that this is what you mean.
