Are you experiencing problems selecting topics?

TL:DR - Make sure you touch/click the actual text of a forum section/post, otherwise you won't get to where you wanted.

The forum user interface has caught a few people out with unexpected behaviour, especially on touch screens. If you want to go into a subsection or post you need to click/touch the actual text of the title. If you click/touch elsewhere it won't actually go into the topic post. On a mouse driven PC nothing much happens, so its obvious, but on a touch device the whole area turns yellow. The same colour changes if the mouse cursor is over the region on a mouse driven device, but unlike the touch device the colour changes back as soon as the mouse moves off the region.
