New format is horrible!!

Postby JanR » Aug 01, 2008 10:09 am

This new format is horrible!!! The print is way too small. It is confusing. Why change a good thing. I can't seem to add my avatar. It says it has to be a jpeg file. It was a jpeg???? It's too bad that you had to ruin a good thing.

Jan...if you click on your name, it will take you to your profile...click on PM yourself and it will take you to the PM page. At the top are tabs..that is the user control panel. Click on edit Profile and it will take you to a more useable page..Don't use the Edit it My Profile and the top right!!LOL

Speaking of...there's another...it don't work!!

I'm afraid that I can't figure out what you are trying to tell me. The print is just too hard to read and the ads are very annoying. I can understand wanting to advertise to pay the costs of providing the site, but they are too much. :( I am afraid that you are just going to chase people away and you won't be advertising to anyone and certainly not me.

Sorry Butterfly, but the new format is really NOT 95% perfect. I have tried every combination of settings I can possibly try, followed advice from others and I still cannot get it to display the way that works for me. Even something simple such as setting the order the posts are displayed in within a topic - no luck - whatever I do, unless I change the setting for each topic, EACH AND EVERYTIME, it always comes up in order from the oldest to newest reply. I am tired of scrolling through every single post! The "Flashing" ads may not bother you, but they sure do bother lots of us, especially those with vision or headache issues.

Jade, I think I can help with one of the problems you are experiencing.
After you have logged in, on the left side beside the topic title, you should see a small brown box. If you click on it, instead of the subject title it will take you to the very last post that you read, and you can continue to read newer posts from there on.

I'm not sure if this function works in all preference combinations, but it does if your settings are at 7 days, and from oldest to newest in the thread body.

Tried it before, just tried it again. All it does is take me to that topic, with the very first post at the top, then all the other posts listed in order of posting, with the most recent being at the very bottom. I can "re-order" the posts by changing the setting on the very bottom, but have to do this EACH AND EVERY TIME WITH EACH AND EVERY POST. I HAVE TRIED CHANGING THE SETTING WITHIN THE USER CONTROL PANEL BUT THAT DOESN'T WORK EITHER.

Other than having to sign in every time, I guess I am not having problems
