    I notice if I click on the date the last message it takes me to that message, I think.. Anyway I like this new format.

    OK that makes sense, and that explains why I can’t add a web link.

    Thank you GS!

    Suggestions:
    1) A Login link at the top of each thread.
    2) A link to jump to the last reply on a thread.

    Again thanks.

    @Everyone – For the time being, we’ve turned indentation off. It was working about half of the time, introducing all kinds of confusion because posts would then be out of order.

    Now that I’ve turned it off, all posts are in order. I’ll keep investigating to see if I can fix it.

    @nwcitizen – Good idea with login link. The “last reply” issue has been “fixed” for now with the indentation turned off.

    “Img” is an option at the top of the edit field, it asks for a link, then asks for a caption, and it should embed the linked image in the post. Error message says “not available at this time”

    Thanks for looking.

    @ernie We’re waiting to see if we’re successful keeping out the spammers before we enable images. Back in the early days of the forum, we had a problem with porn embeds.

    (BTW I love that you can @ someone and it automatically links their profile)

    Ballardgirl – hover the howdy message (top right) – you can log out there.

    GS, thanks for all your hard work and perseverance, just a little bit of getting used to but well worth it, cheers!

    The reply “box” I’m typing in wasn’t obvious to me, but I have a headache (AND the 49rs won). I think it will just take a little while to get used to the changes. Will there be an actual quote option now, or will the b-quote button work the way we used blockquote before?

    Thanks for your hard work, Geeky Swedes. It sounds like you’ve had a frustrating time with this, but I really appreciate that you’re trying to make improvements.

    It IS tough to see the box, especially on a small screen. Can you change the background color? There’s no contrast. Thanks.

    @GS now I realize that I was mixed up reading your responses to my two questions. I understand about the images, too bad that a few people keep us from having nice things.

    As for the “Name” category in my profile, it seems like it should be possible to turn on the option of who to share a Name with, like it is for the other categories (website, etc).

    Thanks.

    Mrs Wahoo, in order to be the best you have to beat the best. As the worst U.S. president ever once said, “Bring ’em on!”

    Allison, I was viewing it on my desktop, so I doubt I could have found it at all on my phone or tablet.

    Ernie & Greenwood Jon: I live with a SF fan, although the DH likes the Hawks when they don’t play the Niners. I hope we annihilate them, but…it would have made my life easier if the Panthers had won today.

    Testing. Yes, I agree with Allison. Some contrast would be nice.

    I feel your pain Mrs. Wahoo, my family moved here from CO in the 70’s and while I have only a secondary allegiance to the Broncos, my sister is still full on.

    If it ends up Seahawks/Broncos I’m for the Seahawks, my dad is for the Hawks, (just out of sympathy for the fact that the haven’t won the SB yet), and my sister says she is going to have to travel to Denver to watch the game…

    Take a look at the reply field now — made the lines darker and the title bold.

    Keep the feedback coming!

    GS – please explain the editing feature. Do you have a time limit? What is that limit? Or can you only edit once no matter the time of the original post? How is it now set up?

    Thanks
