    I have a slew of email to catch up on from people who have issues with the new software... if you have ALREADY emailed me, don't email again or post here. I'll answer all the email from the last couple of days this evening. (I was at the Preakness yesterday and I'm just getting caught up. http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...on_biggrin.gif )

    If you have a question about how something works, post here. If you have a specific problem or issue that is particular to YOU, email me.

    Hi Erin! Lucky you to see "Smarty" win in person! http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c.../icon_cool.gif

    I don't think email notification on working on the PT's. You probably already know, but maybe by posting here you won't get any more emails about it. BTW - <span class="ev_code_RED">I</span> didn't send you any.

    It does look like I have it turned on properly, but maybe I'm missing something?

    Anyhoo - Thanks for all your hard work on the upgrade. Same for the whole team. Upgrades are a necessary PITA, but we appreciate them. http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...milies/yes.gif

    I feel like such a blonde. On the old software, there was a place that said "Whats new" which was a page that had notifications that other members posted, or that topics were replied to. Where can I find that feature on the new software, or does it not exsist? Thanks! http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...icon_smile.gif

    The New things are under the Find tab at the top of the Forum page ...

    SoEasy, that shows me everything new, but it's not my personal notifications that used to be in My Space. http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...n_confused.gif

    This is not a question or a problem but perhaps just a big annoyance.

    The column widths in the Off Course forum are way out of proportion to the amount of data they contain - particularly the Topic column. Make them the same as the Hunter/Jumper forum sizes. And, the Rating column is pretty useless; didn't we go through this exercise before?
    Cheers, Maggi

    wow, horse_poor, I never knew that existed! I can see how it would make life much easier. Waiting with bated breath.

    I can't post a new topic, as the links "Go, New, Tools, Reply" don't work for me, whether I'm logged in or out. The links to the forums work, and obviously I can reply via the icons on each post, but I just can't access any of the toolbox.

    Also, I really, really like the links to news updates on the login page!

    If you click on the "Find" tab, there's a link for today's active topics, and new topics since your last visit. Is that what you're looking for?

    If certain features are not working for you, it's probably your browser. You'll need one of the following:

    Internet Explorer version 5.5 or higher
    Netscape version 7 or higher
    Mozilla
    Safari
    Opera version 7 or higher

    I have Mozilla and Netscape 7, but will try updating them.

    I have a Time Preferences Q: i am in MI, and that is EST. So, in preferences, I have set my time preference to My Timezone (which at this time says 8:24 PM, which it is on my clock) the Community Timezone (in preferences) says 7:24 PM EST (but this is not correct...). The current posts on the board are saying 9:24 PM. I am mighty confused.
    I may have been away for a while, but I'm not gone yet!

    No, I'm looking for the My Space feature that gives you only topics you have posted to, not all new posts since you last checked in, and also gives you posts by users whom you are keeping an eye on. http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c.../icon_wink.gif I tried the Find thing, and it gives me everything new, not the topics I'm watching that are in my Notifications file. When I go to get a new Notification, it no longer has the option of getting the N. on the My Space page -- it only offers email updates. http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...icon_frown.gif

    I am using IE6.0.

    Or it might be a problem with a pop-up blocker, if you have one installed... ?

    Why are there GIGANTIC pictures on some of the posts? That would be Erin's and GatoGordo's posts. I can't find their posts because the photos are so HUGE! http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...n_confused.gif

    (Though they are both very lovely photos!)

    Erin,

    The old way, if a Premium Member posted a picture, when you had finished looking at, it you hit the back arrow and you were back in the thread -- the picture was gone.

    Now, if you hit the back arrow, you go back to the thread, but the picture is still lurking underneath and you have to hit the X in the upper right corner to close it.

    It is a 2 step process to get out of the attachment now and is sort of a pain. Why?

    Also, when a thread has multiple pages, there used to be a "next" option so you did not have to figure out which page you were on and then figure out which page you wanted to move to. It was very convenient. Can we have the "next" option back so we don't have to always choose a specific page?

    -- Other than colors I haven't seen any bells or whistles to the new BB. Just little annoyances like these. Are there surprises coming?

    PS: I also don't like the result screen of the search feature, but it very well could be because I am old and anything new takes a long time for me to get used to.

    GO SMARTY!

    HSM, I was fixing the problem with avatars that we had earlier. I was hoping to do it fast enough that not many people would notice. http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c.../icon_wink.gif

    I have yet to see ANY avatars at all. Am I missing something?

    I second the width of the topic titles, it seems a little squishy to me. Love the colour though!
