    Post titles actually show up now

    With the old software, you could enter a post title, but it didn't show up in the actual post. Now, as you can see, it does.

    Top right hand corner of the screen, beside Logout, there is a link 'Settings'. It takes you to what you're looking for.

    Er ... um ....

    Ah, I see. In that case ... er ... um ... I never really used that particular function before. At least, I don't think I did. I have no idea, then.

    You did (or probably did anyway).

    It used to be (IIRC) that when you clicked on the thread title in your subscribed threads, it took you to the last unread post in that thread.

    The links don't stand out well. This is irritating.

    Yes. I noticed that also but decided to be graceful and 'willingly blind', lol....

    Here in the Yukon, 'We'll be back for about one hour!" describes the challenges that we face in processing debits, credits and Interact at the retail grocery. I feel sorry for the cashiers when faced with irate customers who don't carry any cash, nor seem able to read the huge poster at the front door that is launched during these far too frequent lapses of technology.

    It's not our fault and we are as frustrated as anyone by these 'operational difficulties.'

    I explored the new site format a little and so far I have no complaints.

    I found a bug in the Quick Reply window. Using the up arrow key moves the edit cursor to the top of the visible window but if there is more text above the visible window then the edit cursor tends not to move upwards any further.

    Thanks. Is there way to get longer list on first click? Also is there way to increase the time period - often I get "there are no msg to display in this period" (or something like that.)

    See the button labled "View all Subscribed threads"?

    Use that.

    I agree -- at least on my browser, I have to move the pointer over every single word to search for hyperlinks like the one hidden in Trooper's text. That's going to make it harder to argue if my reference-supported argument looks exactly like a claim based on personal authority.

    Bug or intended in advance option when responding?

    Does underlining work with links?

    Testing to see..

    Bug or intended?

    One thing to note as well is that when typing a response and if you select 'advanced option', if you scroll down to read the previous posts, they all appear lumped together with no lines between them to separate them or to show that they are separate and distinct posts. It makes it very confusing as it just looks like it is all together in one post where they are actually separate and distinct posts. While you can see the poster's name above each post, if someone responds and types in the person's name instead of just quoting, as many do, it would make it overly confusing.

    Would it be possible to have a line or something to separate each post when in the 'advanced response' mode?

    I do like the fact that we can insert horizontal lines in our own posts though. However, if I hit quote or hit reply and scroll down in the advanced option and look at my post with the line it it, it just makes it even all the more confusing.

    I just had to test the 'insert video' link with a tongue-in-cheek number by The Arrogant Worms.

    What can I say? All the simple stuff works for the technically challenged such as myself. :shrug:
