    OMFG thanks for that. A classic case of having to know. Hope they add an option to the panel settings too as that’s where everyone is actually looking for this lol.

      I agree an option would make so many users happy, I have been looking for the option for days before finding this. Can I have my bandwidth back from all that searching :)
