    One thing I miss in the new format is the members location in the header box on the left hand side.
    ie Australia. UK USA etc. It helped me to understand the difference in their build, materials or advice.

    Good point David. It also gave members an idea of climate, seasons, geography and time zones at a glance.
    Kindled with zeal and fired with passion.

      The main issues keeping me away are that it is too hard to determine new posts, and the red on gray hurts my eyes.

        First I would like to say that without this forum I would not have attempted my build. The help I got from members here was invaluable during my build.

        Thank you to everyone who gave me the benefit of their experience and advice.

            Tim & Mitch, thank you for letting us have input and response on improving the forum. I would like to know if there will be an improvement/addition to the media section that will allow us to delete existing photo folders. Currently, it does not appear that it is possible to either rename or delete existing folders in our photo album collections.

            Your work and attention to the well-being of the forum is truly awesome and much appreciated! I also agree with DavidApp, that having the member's location info displayed on the post is very useful and in fact critical to how we respond to posted questions.

            As Tscarborough noted, I also really have problems with red text on a gray background, even if it's bold red...it's just not a good contrast color combination in my opinion. White's marginal to poor while black/blue are good on gray, but most of the other colors just lose their definition altogether on the gray. Please have the programmers actually have someone else (with a lower class, smaller monitor) look at some of these combinations...I'd trade readability over glitz every time. I suspect it would be a lot easier just to stick with basic old school text, black on white...and most forum members (and visitors) would find it much easier to navigate and read posts. I used to teach CIS and when we got our first color monitors & printers at the college, everyone wanted to print ALL the colors on every document that was created...what a waste & headache for anyone trying to work with these documents. Color is great for emphasis, but it doesn't take too much to be TOO MUCH!

              I haven't been visiting the forum for months because I cannot find my way around the new format when compared to the old one. I understand that change is inevitable but I do miss the list of new posts since I was last on (which used to be 24 hours). The location of each member was also important to me as I was keeping an Australian list but now I have no idea of their location. Generally I am disappointed with the new format (but old fashioned and liked to older one as it was a breeze to follow).
              Prevention is better than cure, - do it right the first time!

                I enjoyed the ability to have a signature at the end of each post with the link to your build or your page. It seems that the new layout does not allow for this signature

                  Loren,

                  In the top right hand corner of the page, select the drop down box by your avatar and name. Then select User Settings/Account. Scroll down and there should be a box titled Show Signatures. It probably is not checked. Below that, is also a selection where you can edit your signature. Save the changes and you should be able to see all signatures.

                      G'day
                      Have been reluctant to answer up till this point as I lose any reply longer than a couple of lines on the " hand held device" the I-phone. I've pulled my desk top " puter" out of mothballs, and I'm learning that I do like windows 7 again.
                      So my 2 bits.
                      General: navigating in a thread.
                      Presently you can jump 1 page at time at the top of any particular thread, to get the ability to go more than a one page jump at a time you have to scroll through right to the bottom of the page where the icon that allows you to do this is located. Should have that ability at both top and bottom of the page.
                      I-phones and hand held devices view.
                      I cant really understand why its impossible to use this forum when any of the other forums I use are easily used in the Desktop option or Full site option. I don't use the Other devices option Tapa talk or any other thing but the full view. The one thing other than the loss of the new topic button is the lack of the pinch and zoom. Given that option and the full site would give me at least the chance to operate on the forum
                      Thanks for allowing me to have a reply
                      Regards Dave
                      PS nearly lost this reply but for copy/paste. then logging myself out, then back in then pasting the reply...again! on the desk top?
                      I cant understand it.

                        G'day
                        Appears losing posts is probably related to timing out. The copy paste option doesn't work on pics and probably not links so the isn't a long term option. Is there any way to stay logged in then log yourself out at the end? The old forum stayed active if you were active as well so you didn't lose posts it also showed you if you were still logged in.
                        Regards Dave

                          Sorry I'm back again with another, this has been the only day I've had free to have a big play with this.
                          Zoom pinch function on the I-phone....good news its back.
                          Bad news it cant be used again if you log in.....back to square 1 it seems.
                          regards Dave

                            Hi Dave,

                            Thank you for taking the time to post your comments. To jump more than one page at a time from the top of the page, you can click in the page number box, type in the page number you want to jump to and hit enter (both desktop and iphone). I believe your second post is in regards to iphone? I will look into the timeout issue and losing posts. The desktop forum has an auto-save feature; if you're typing a response and leave that page or logout, when you return to that page, you'll have a message to restore or discard what you were typing. You can copy/paste images on the desktop version, but it does look like the iphone currently pastes the link to the image. As long as you are logged in, your profile name will show up in the login area at the very top of the page. I've been testing your issues on my iphone under my personal login and I don't have any issues with pinch zoom both logged in and logged out. Is anyone else experiencing the zoom issue? No updates.

                                Hello Forum Members,

                                As the team continues to work on the improvements, we have some updates to share:

                                The images in Albums have all been restored
                                The gallery functionality In albums and posts that contain multiple images is now working so that the images now stack

                                More to come! Thank you for your patience -

                                Mitch
