    Is there a plan to enable the Daily Digests to be received in HTML format? I find the current 'plain text' option a tad difficult to navigate through.

    Thanks

    There is not yet a "plan", but we certainly want to offer HTML daily digests when we can.

    Thanks Stuart, hopefully this functionality won't be too far off.
    Cheers

    Yes, need HTML or indenting.

    The text format is difficult to visually separate one post from another.

    I donít know how long an issues list the Lounge has but I sure hope this one is very near the top. I really miss the old format. It was easy to read and you could link to posts referenced in the text. Whatever you can do would be greatly appreciated.
    You know it's time to diet when you push away from the table and the table moves.

    Any schedule yet on getting to this?

    It's nearly impossible to make sense of anything in the current format! Which also reduces potential traffic to the site.

    We are not likely to resolve this within weeks, but it's not going to take years either.
    Expect to see progress within the next few months.

    Another issue with the Daily Digests:

    I started a thread at http://www.wopr.com/index.php?showtopic=762377 (Other Software Topics) yesterday. Today, there were 6 replies (all of which I received in email notifications).

    I also subscribe to this forum for daily updates.

    Yet in today's daily update of new posts in this forum, all I received was the LAST post (as follows). I would think that I should be seeing ALL the posts that were new. Why is this not occurring?

    ===================

    It's clear that the current digests are far from ideal. As StuartR indicated, we're looking into this, and we hope to be able to improve the situation in the foreseeable future.
