    Does anyone here know what this button in the iPF iPad app is? I can't figure it out.

    That allows you to select that post in order to report it or do a multi-quote response.

    Ok, thanks. Is there a way to like a post in the iPF app? I can't seem to find a way to do so.

    Just press the square with the curvy arrow coming out. It is located in the upper right corner.

    You have to get get out of the question you are viewing and back into the actual section to post a new thread.

    The only way that I know of is to scroll to the top of the page and press the grey arrow below the curly one, this takes you to the thread in the website but still within the app. You can then scroll to the post and "like" it. Then press the top left hand button to return to the thread in the app.

    Ok, I get it now, thanks. I wish there was a way to like within the app, but it's neat how you can view the website within the app.

    I'm always using that little grey button, it's extremely useful (the search function is better on the website as well). It would be nice to like from within the app, hopefully it will come one of these days.

    Agreed. If you want to post a link to a page you can do that using the web view. Go to the action button at the bottom of the screen and one of the options is Copy Link. You can then paste that into your post if, for example, you want to point out a previously answered question.

    I know. I was following on from your original question. You use the same facility to link to a thread as you do to like a post.
