OK! This old dog is slow to change.

What do you think?

It looks better, but I'm finding it more difficult to find what I'm looking for. I'm sure that will come with time.

I don't like how you don't automatically subscribe when you start a new topic... or at least it doesn't give you the option to get an email when someone replies.

I'm just being picky though ;) I feel like an "old dog" too lol

Can anyone verify that you need to manually subscribe to topics that you reply to? There may be an admin setting that will change this if it is the case.

Take care,

Scott

Yes, I did this, but it used to be two steps less as you could just check the box before hitting submit.

I think I can handle a couple extra clicks if this is the case though ;)

Thanks!

Is there a "back to the top" option that I'm missing?

A picture guide of old vrs new would be helpful.

Some sort of FYI for sure,

A basic how to that compares what we did and what we have to do now too:

other wise it looks great -- if I can figure it out....

It's very attractive, also looks like it's going to take a bit of getting used to. Since it's the end of a long day here, I'm going to start in earnest tomorrow to figure it all out.

Scott, thanks for updating us to the latest--I'm sure before too long it'll become as familiar as the old one :)

It's under the last blue border at the bottom of the page (where it says English (USA)) on the far left side.

I am wondering what this "Reputation" thingy is, and why I don't have one :P And who says I'm neutral? I can be quite radical if provoked :lol:

P.S. And the edit button is there, Purple. I just added this postscript.

The edit button is directly underneath the post box, there's a blue strip that has a couple of options, with edit being one of them. I had to make sure it was there, too!

:lol::lol:

I believe it may have something to do with the little +/- (green/red) cirles on the bottom right of each post. I would guess that people could give you a thumbs up or thumbs down on your posts like they do on other sites like youtube. As far as I can tell, this feature has not been enabled.

Purple, are you sure you were looking at your post and not Liz quoting your post? I see a quote from Matthew at the bottom of your posts.

OK . . . got it . . . you have fallen out of the "standard" viewing mode.

To change (and this is what took me a while . . . I had to go find it . . . :P)

Go to your name in the green box at the top of the page.

Click on the arrow to get the drop down menu.

Click on My Settings.

On the page it takes you to, select Forums (in the gray header bar)

From there, scroll down to Topic Display Mode and select Standard.

Don't forget to Save Changes.

Hate to be a kiljoy, but I'm not a fan of this look/color scheme. Not at all. Do not like the white, blue, and green combination as it is now. Please, please, please try to recreate the old forum look, request suggestions from forum members for ideas to improve this skin, or provide a choice of skins. Thanks.

best regards, lm

Just a few questions?

How can i scroll all new messages in all forums that I didnt see before?

How can I mark all messages as read?

Is there something (without subscribing to email) a way to have threads marked that I replied too?

Generally, with the old format, I liked to scroll through all new topics and headers and just read the ones I had some interest in.

All the topics categories were available at one time and I didnt have to go back and forth to main menus. Is this still possible?

Thanks Ken

I saw nothing wrong with the old format and really would like to return to it. I find the new look distracting, too bright, and it takes me much longer to "zoom in" on something I am looking for. The new format is more colorful but for me, it is not an improvement. I will say that I am unable to "intuit" and simply nuts around with new software until I have it all figured out. I'll feel better when the Dummy book comes out and explains how to use the new format.

I'm glad the people are the same :)
