    Okay, found it. "View new content", upper right corner. I like that menu.

    It will without doubt take this particular old fart some time to figure out how to do anything, but that said; Congrats Otto on deciding to make the switch.

    I'm right there with ya' Clint! It will take time to relearn a few things. I tried to post a new thread in the FFZ and it won't take. I'm sure it's a small glitch (or I finally broke the interweb). There's bound to be a few odd happenings but overall I see a lot that I like. The feature of selecting the latest; past day, week posts etc is nice. Main thing I need to find is how to turn the auto-spellcheck on. :)

    We've still ironing a few kinks. Mind your step.

    No problem Sir. I can see new things/old things being added to the page almost every minute. Liking a lot of the additional features too.

    Yes, just post the youtube link directly in your post. The forum will auto insert it for you.

    Use the Otto-spellcheck instead.

    At your own risk, of course.

    Somebody please enable the anti-pun check function, or it could be the end of us! Doomed, Doomed I say!

    And the spoiler function, too. (Allowing retrofitting to other peoples' posts would be nice, if unlikely.)

    Hey fellows, you should try the "smilies" option, when clicking on it yu get a horizontal menu now and you can pick one of the many WITHOUT having to go to the MORE option like before. This allows us to get more smilies easier and to get richer and funnier illustrations. :v4victory: :dance3: :ponce:

    Does the friends part return in original form or do we have to "make friends" again here?

    I usually open the forum by going to Latest Posts, which in this version should be "View New Content." Sometimes you indeed have new content, and sometimes threads are invisible even though you have posted in them much later than the threads that are visible under the new content button.

    Mess with the pink bars & Ticks down the left side of New Content, KB:
    [​IMG]

    A far more useful 'Recent posts' list can be built.

    This is so much better. Now if we could only recoup most of our long-time members...
