  • So the joint has a whole new look now?

    Apparently we can now have avatars. But I played around in my profile and can't figure out how to load it up. The "Chage Avatar" link window doesn't seem to allow you to actually DO anything.

    Whoops.  The "Change Avatar" link was actually supposed to be removed from your profile settings.  Avatars aren't allowed in this community.  Thanks for spotting that tho.

  • Okay, then. Next issue: How do we post pictures now? I don't see any provision for that.

    Oh, just found it. You have to click the "rich formatting" link to do anything. Apparently the "default" reply window now is just an "express reply" window.

    Yea, the initial reply field that renders is a quick reply option for those that just want to type and post.  If you want to use additional formatting (i.e. - bolding, italics, pictures, quotes, etc...) you need to click the "Use Rich Formatting" option.

    Links in posts no longer work, even if they are pointing to another topic within the site.

    Can you post an example of where you are seeing this?  All of the old links should still work.  I can investigate.  Let me know.  Thanks.

    I'll look into the link issue.

    You can edit any post you created by clicking the "pencil" icon that appears below your posts.  You'll only see this on posts you created tho. 

  • The new forum looks great, but how do we change our signature now?

    The new forum looks great, but how do we change our signature now?

    Signatures can be modifed by either clicking the "Community Settings" link in the profile box right above the ad zones in the right column.  Or by simply going here:

  • I noticed in the full rich format version, the box at the bottom is PRE CHECKED for E mail replies ...I think that should be UN CHECKED....I don't need email's about posts.

  • How do you mark forums as read? How do I get back to the mobile version after I've switched to the full site version?
