Thanks for the feedback!
The big update that I have been working on for the past 12(!) months has finished phase 1: A complete forum backend code rewrite. It has been tested extensively for a few months and should be 99% solid, but I will continue to monitor everything to make sure all new code behaves properly. So bear with me as some bugs might come to the surface in the coming days
As for the gold bar. This is intended as a bookmarker, helping you keep track where you were. This also has to do with the upcoming Grid View front page (update phase 2, coming soon). The gold color is picked from the Pinside yellow (from the new logo!). I just toned it down a notch
Quoted from Luckydogg420:
Also in iOS, I was on page 2 near the bottom. I scrolled to the top and pressed the forum link in the banner. Previously it would reload the 1st page, but today it reloaded me to the 2nd page where I was reading last.
I forgot to push a small last-minute bugfix that I did at home late last night. Should be fixed now!
It will 'remember' your position (last page/topic visited) for 10 minutes, or until you do a page refresh.
