hhmm .. what's with the "width"
a lot of wasted space on the sides, makes the messages use taller space ..

Is there a "View Today's (this week's) Content" ?

message Reply Button .. is only way at top ..

Thanks for your feedback!

All the features are there and there's a bunch of new ones, too. Which features in particular are you missing, kdog?

Reg: yeah, no reply button, I'll have to add that myself like I did on the previous version. There's also the reply box just below the last post in a topic.

I played around with this new version and the more I played with it, the more I came to like it. I know it looks different, but give it a chance. Take a few minutes and look around, especially at the subtle little symbols. Mouse over them. Mouse over everything! Lots of cool tricks! I'll post some screen shots later today that'll show some of these.

... Is there a "View Today's (this week's) Content" ?

also, my "original" signature line had (2) links to YouTube ... (bugs bunny and Easter Seals video)
"new" software converted both link "text" looked the same but when "clicked"
went to the appropriate video...
When I tried "fixing" the text / link ..
It automatically adds the "media" tags instead of the "url" tags
It then displayed each YouTube (large) "media" pictures
I left one displayed in my "signature"

also, there's no "on-line" indicator next to each avatar
(have to mouse-roll)

Yes, there is indeed a view new content link and it's way better than the old one- more options like view unread-only or all and more. I'm on my iPhone now (the mobile theme is vastly improved!) but will post a screen shot showing you where it is.

I'll look into the signature thing when I get back, too. Can you post a screen shot showing what happens when you try to edit it?

Bottom Line - It Sucks!!

Hadn't even learned all of the functions of the other

Was it Broke?? Why fix it ??

Thanks - the Screencasts are very helpful indeed, please post those more often
Another issue I have is when reading posts, it always starts at the beginning of the thread whereas it used to fastforward to where I had last looked at it

I agree, but Samurai, we don't necessarily want to see the first post NOR the last post,
but rather, the first message that we haven't read (in that thread)

Yes, agreed - sometimes there are several comments posted between the last time it was viewed and the last post that was made. I had become accustomed to having it display where i had left off - even days later

Also, do I need to change some margins etc to have it come out as I printed it when adding part links? see this post for example: http://appliantology...935#entry206935
