    Definately looks great, but it will take some time getting adjusted

    I'll have to find the setting for that, should be possible just don't know where yet.

    I need to rebuild the search index. It will make the server sluggish while I'm doing that, so I'm waiting for a quiet moment to get that going.

    I changed a setting in Tapatalk, let me know if it was the right one or not.

    You can see a person's post count, and more info about them, if you click on the avatar.

    What about "users who have read this thread" for subscribing members?

    Sorry to say Pete, but it didn't work. When I open the thread, it scrolls to the last post, but when viewing the threads it shows the original post.

    Thanks for working on this for us!

    I think there's a mod that does that.
    Is that on Tapatalk? It's still doing the same thing it was before?

    Same here Harry seems it will only show most recent posts since the change over.

    Like Peter says though he will try fixing it when there is some down time so I guess for now we wait.

    Affirm. It shows only the first post in the thread in Tapatalk.

    Kilvinsky I think, therefore I'll never be promoted.

    For two days I couldn't log on. I wondered, "Did I earn a ride on the BAN BUS and didn't know it?" I'm glad it wasn't me (at least I don't think so). So many changes. As a conservative Republican, I don't like change. I like things as they are, however, as a REALIST, I understand changes happen and can live with them. I may not like them but I will deal with them. This applies. It may turn out to be for the best so I adapt.

    I whine, but I adapt. I AM a man.

    just a really whimpy man.

    Just a friendly reminder.... THIS is the type of "change" you need to worry about:

    obama-change.jpg will be allright. ;)

    LoL Kilv, but if YOU are ever given a ride on the BAN BUS, then save me a seat.

    The day that I read anything you've posted which earns you a ride on that bus, is the day that I have any one of my posts removed by an administrator :rolleyes:.

    Okay, I'm done bitching about that, but seriously...

    There's a good reason I've never used one of those profile signatures which sound more like a disclaimer to me... you know the ones... usually accompanying posts by members who hope never to be held accountable for their words.

    Well, I don't think that's you Kilv, and I certainly don't plan to start posting anything here in the MC3 years that would ever embarrass my employer, my co-workers or my profession, any more than I ever did on Gil's MC1 or MC2.

    Drive On Peter. Your efforts are appreciated.

    My 2 cents is, forget all the add-ons. Second point, if not already asked, where's the "forum posts" in my profile? It says number of messages 3000-something, so I'm assuming that's the formerly known as posts link but nothing happens when you hover over it.

    You can already do that. Here's a link to the preferences:
    And, up at the top of each thread is a button which would say either "Watch Thread" or "Unwatch Thread" you can use those buttons to set each thread individually.

    Deuce screw you...

    Holy crap I pass out from a lil holiday cheer to wake up and find I'm Rip Van F-ingWinkle.. WTF happened??? And why can't I post in AAC? Did I get fired too and no one told me or are you onto me and figured out I really am a 14 y/o girl from the Phillipines?

    One thing I noticed, when I click on What's New is not pulling up all of the new threads, it will say Showing 1 to 14 of 20 but there is only one page of new threads. It seems to not pull up the threads in the sub-forums.

    Glad I wasn't the only one who thought I got banned as well.....I guess I have not choice but to get used to the changes. Hope the bugs get worked out.

    Well, I've downloaded Tapatalk on my iPhone and must say its the best way to access a forum by mobile I've ever seen.

    Simple, intuitive, easy. Like it!

    I guess *messages* is the new name for forum posts.

    Peter is it possible to have the "new post" button added to the menu bar rather than on a drop down window. Possibly changing the members page to be listed by the alphabet rather than numbered pages. Now you have to just guess what nubered page has the letter you are looking for.
