    Things that have changed in the upgrade 01/25

    Just a short list of things that are different:

    1) The "report post" feature is now an icon in the lower left of each post.
    2) The logo has changed - we're trying a new one out.
    3) All of the menu options are now in javascript expanding boxes (click on "quick links" above to see).
    4) The User CP is MUCH different and better.
    5) Private Message tracking is back on and working well.
    6) When you "mark a forum read", it takes you back to the main forum listing, instead of back to the category.
    7) We've added a spellchecker to all posts, quick replies, and PM's.

    There are many more things, and I'll add to them as I think of them. In the meantime, play around.

    Here's one I forgot. If you click on the collapse group icon, [img]/forums/images/buttons/collapse_tcat.gif[/img], you can collapse either a section of forums, the posting rules, etc. They stay collapsed for you, and you can expand them back when/if you want. To save you some screen space.

    For example, if you don't care about the Non-Reality Shows, you can collapse that whole section of forums.

    Yeah!! John added a spell checker. Now I just have to figure out how to use it. I thought everything looked different because of our new computer we got yesterday, I forgot all about the changes here until I started to really try to figure out what was going on.

    Question John. I've noticed some newbies show up in the who's online listing in a light red color... any reason for that?

    it's strange, a few minutes ago, some new poster was showing up on the who's online in a lighter shade of red than the Mods. Then when I refreshed the red color had moved over to yet another newbie. Now it's not showing up.

    If you hold your cursor over the name it shows up light red

    Very cool changes, John. Thank you for making it easier for us technologically challenged to do stuff like change fonts and colours !!!

    You are correct, averagejane, but my cursor was not near the name! I got gremlins, I think!

    John, I lied in my other post. When you "go advanced" in the quick reply, how DO you get the fonts/colours/size to work?
