    The links to activity on the right no longer takes me into the threads latest posts, nor are they showing up as BOLD for unread. Is this something in my settings or site settings that needs to be changed Stuart?

    Same here!

    I have updated the setting (it's a new setting) to take you to the newest comment you haven't read, but you can customize the setting yourself here too: https://mantaclub.org/settings/links/

    On one of my iPads at my girlfriends it will not let me reply to anything. No option to type anything just has a box saying “insert image from url” whatever that means. .?

    seems to work (more or less ) normally on my own iPad 

    It looks like you might have a 2nd or 3rd gen iPad that cannot update past iOS 9. From my testing it looks like that's just slightly too old and doesn't support some of the newer technology that is now used for display. iOS 10 looks like it works though.

    Lost all fields. Can't post. Can't send a pm as message field is gone. I have title. That's it? 

    When I try to reply to post on forum. Nothing happens.

    Weird looking too, wouldn't call it an update, maybe downgrade! Is it meant to look 1985 retro! 

    Looks OK on phone, same as before really. 

    What's going on? 

    It looks like you're using a really old Android (v4) tablet with a really old version of Chrome (v36 - released 6 years ago). You'll need to use a more modern browser if you're having issues with how the site looks (it uses newer styling techniques that older browers do not support).

    Having a quick look online, you should at least be able to upgrade to a newer version of Chrome on that version of Android.

    mine doesnt so ive deleted it completely and can only get in by going to google first then searching for opel manta owners club then saving the results as an " add to home screen" seems to work that way but still a different layout to what it was before and got used to .guess il just have to learn my way around it .

    You're still seeing something say "misdirected request"?

    you mention an update which explains the site access differences. can an admin just confirm that they have redesigned the site look thou please 

    Yes, the latest version of the platform we use had a new design - https://invisioncommunity.com/news/product-updates/45-introducing-our-updated-default-theme-r1198/ our design is  based on the default theme but with OMOC brand colours.

    I have the OMOC as a tile on my i phone alongside other Apps but now when I press it I get misdirected request as well, how do I fix it.

    Thanks, that looks like it is related to a server side change. I have made some adjustments, does it work now?

  5. Yes, there was an update to the latest version of Invision Community, we always keep up with the latest releases however we did get a little behind this time (4.5 has been out for a few months) but that has given the software time to stabilize after a major update.

    and also lost the ability to close the page or swap websites .have to double click home button to get site off screen. doesnt happen on any other sites,ebay,google,other car forums etc ?...

    If you've added the site to your home screen and access via that, this is something called a 'Progressive Web Application' where your device will try to treat the site like a real standalone application rather than just a normal web browser (it's still a web browser underneath, but it doesn't have the typical browser interface). This isn't new though, it was a feature added at least 12 months ago.

    One of the cool new things that 4.5 enables is a real App for your phone, it's still in development but Android users can get it here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.invisioncommunity.communities When approved, OMOC will be listed under the automotive category. iOS deals with early access apps a different way, so I'm afraid you'll need to wait for general release.

    Hi, I'm having the same problem as above. I've used the link but only get the option for full membership. Could you please change mine to web only before I pay? Thanks

    Sure, I have changed it for you. If anyone else wants something like this changing, the best bet is to send me a PM directly :)

    Also i got my reminder for membership by email when I tried to reply asking can i pay at the AGM this Saturday I got a message back saying it was a non-reply service. What's going on I've tried sending a Private Message (PM) to the membership secretary Simon Peckam with no reply don't you want my membership? 

    I don't do Pay Pal & any form of "on line" payments.



    It looks like you've been sorted out now :) We send emails from an address that doesn't accept replies, it's quite a normal practise. - It deals with bounce notices so we know which email addresses work and which don't.

    Yes Mike I do have a email and when I open the link it will only let me have Individual Membership not web membership.

    I've taken care of it for you, go through the renewal process as normal and it'll now process you as a web membership.

    Hi been looking at rejoining but it will only offer me family membership when I go to pay is there a way to change this, cheers Andy 

    I'll send you a message.

  9. We can certainly change it for you (You can PM me if you want us to change it). However it's something that needs to be done manually. Changing to a Web Member should be something that's done when your membership expires, otherwise you will immediately lose full membership privileges. - This is a technicality of how our automated system works.

    A Stienmetz Commy A, that is HORNY !!!

    mian400 - i see you are still having difficulties, you can post pictures onto this forum direct by 'dragging' images or choosing images from your computer, there is a file size limit that i find a problem, i always seemed to spend ages making repeated attempts to edit the pictures down to size only to get them rejected.

     I have gone back to the old skool method of hosting them on Photobucket, this is the picture hosting service that i have always used. you can set up a Photobucket account free and it is not too hard to do.

     Then when you want to post a picture, load it onto Photobucket and using the 'insert other media' button at the bottom right of the reply box you can click on the 'insert image from URL' sentance, this brings up another box.

    Back on Photobucket click on the image you want and it will bring up an option list, click on code beside direct (it will turn yellow with the word copied) and back on sub-window on the Manta forum paste the code into the box and add it to your post.

    Sounds long winded but it is quicker to do than it is to type out these instructions and quicker than endlessly trying to resize pictures to post them directly.

    Worth noting that with Photobucket, you don't even need to do that. if you get the image URL and paste it, it'll automatically appear in the editor.

  12. Hi Gary   Hope things have been good for you and the Manta's  


    Thank you Simon for the link ... ( No application form there tho'  Sir  ?  )   Shall I just send in a Cheque to renew ?



    Ian .....  No Olives mate  but a few scrag ends of Goat / Cat were stuck to the lower wishbone passengers side ! 

                 ((( So .......   I did get the blighter  !!!!  )))  


    Hi John,


    It's an online system, you will see an overview of the Membership you have, and when it last expired. click 'Renew Membership' to start the process.



  13. I am posting this on behalf of someone who has contacted the OMOC.




    Hi, I have a 1973 Opel Manta A 1.6 that is beyond repair. The bodyshell is heavily corroded, but had a working engine, gearbox and diff prior to being dismantled. The vehicle is a rolling shell with all parts that I removed boxed and available. It would hopefully yield parts to keep a members car on the road. I live just outside Glasgow and if any of your Members are interested they can contact me on 07786 432329


    Please contact Derek on the number above if interested.

  14. Hi.. Can Admin re-set my pending membership application as for some reason I used the traders membership instead of the normal £25 one and I am unable to change this myself and it is stuck in pending mode.

    Thanks AP



  15. I have A Good Lock Of Parts For An Opel Manta Hatch Or Coupe . I Will Have Most Of The Parts If Needed . Just leave A Message And I'll See If I Have It . You Can Email Me At owenkelly2010@gmail.com Or Leave A Message Here .



    Hi Owen,

    As noted, our forum guidelines specify that you should provide as much information, pictures and prices as possible.

    It's also worth noting that if you're selling parts as a business, you must have an OMOC membership to do so.

    Please create a new topic when you create a list of parts you have for sale.



  16. I've been a club member for years and only haven't been for the last couple because of having to sell all my mantas, parts, tools, garage, etc for a major change in circumstance.. Mantas have been, are and always will be a major part of my life and I didn't want to remain in the club as it would remind me of the loss. Now, I have another manta, it needs a lot of work, alas I have not the tools, spares and it's outside in the rain but rejoining is on my to-do list as I'm going to need the help and hope to have it at Billing 2015, I wouldn't mind my old login though, I have a different email and dont know the password so cant reactivate it.

    Quite a few people I know on here still, but a surprising amount who aren't!

    I can sort that out :thumbup
