fyi, to those who have issues with any of the changes, there is always the default platform, which will not be changed as all the others receive improvements based on member commentary,

Switched around the 'mobile' style skins to remove the ticker and put it at the bottom of each page, and current feed.

That freed up header space, and menu space on the mobile forms.

So if on mobile styles (2 of them), the ticker is at the bottom of every page.

All other styles, the ticker remains at the top.

Looks like the ticker updated on the Ijunk. Lets see if it works when the markets open.

Are there any other options to change the formatting of text? Font sizes are all over the place. The few skins that are available are either all over with font sizes, or the default one which happens to be better with the font, is washed out with the colors. Zooming the browser in and out doesn't help either. When zoomed out to make the bulk of the font right, I have an aneurysm trying to read quoted text. . .

Maybe there is a thread out there that addresses this already, but I haven't come across it yet.

Wow thanks for the quick update. I have to ask though, is it easy to change the color of the very subtle lines that separate everyone's posts? With both light and dark default themes, those subtle lines are washed out. I guess that's what I meant by my initial comment (the subtle outlines need to be lighter for the dark theme and darker for the light theme).

If I'm being a PIA do tell. . .

The transformation nears an end,

Added the notices box where we can get up current intel at a glance to all without having to sort thru the whole forum.

The up/down button is working great,

Still some background to do on color schemes, but that is so fookin' tedious that it is going to take awhile.

At this point, it will be minor changes here and there, as I would prefer we all start using what we have such as the 'gallery' and 'media' areas.

In addition to making sure we have no loss in speed.

Mind posting a screen shot of that?

Also, a really fine addition to any windows pc is Jing. You have to 'sign up' for an account once, but it never bothers you after. I've been using it for about a year now and it's really great to copy screens and videos.

Ummm? actually it seems I can't :don't    know2: Ii had my PC rebuilt after I tried to fix it and this is the first time I have tried a screen shot and one or both buttons do not work. sad.

But not to fail.... I am on a pavillion g7 using firefox so when I scroll up to the top of the page where my screen name is along with my inbox and alerts it is when i click or hover over my screen name that a drop box materializes. On the right(starbord) side I pick or click on "your content"

hummm? Jing will have to try that one out after I run diagnostics if'n I can find them. One thing is for sure I am not opening this thing up again....yeah I could not even see the screws and had to get a magnifying glass with my readers....

Is there any place to click to see "recent" posts like the old site? The New Posts disappear after I take a look at them, and at times I want to go back to them again once at a desktop system or tablet.

If all posts are marked as read, you can click the link "View all recent posts"

If only some posts are read and others not, then try the link below. if it works for you, then bookmark it for later.

I always use the new posts button and scroll from top to bottom.
Would it be possible to put a mark forum read button at the bottom?

It is such a pain to have to go one more step to the top to get er done. :belly laugh:

Hey up bigjon,

I can look into it, as that is in the main menu coding.

Do not know if they have a 'ap' that would add it to the bottom also,

Like we added the 'go to top/bottom' button

It's not a problem.
I just hit the "Home" button and then click on the "mark forums read" button.

Thanks for your concern.

To change your avatar, on your name at the menu bar up top, hover over your name and a menu will pop up. Choose personal details.

When that page comes up, then to the right of existing, it will state 'click the image to change your avatar'. Upload your av and you are basically done.

Is there a way to search for threads that I started? Watched threads includes the ones I started, but lots of others too. I would like to look for only threads that I started. Thanks!

Got the link by going to your profile page, clicking postings going to the bottom of page and clicking on "find all threads by weatherman."

Hopes it helps. Best I can do. Sorry about the bad link.

This thread has wrecked my whole day. Now I know just how electronically challenged I is. I use the new post thingy and probably miss most of the good stuff. Think I'll bake a cake, whip up some cream and slice some strawberries to drown myself in.

The link really isn't what you may be looking for.

If interested in finding a particular persons posts, either search for the person or click on their name and a box will pop up, click on 'profile page', and the following will come up. Multiple tabs, and under the tab 'information', if you click on that it will provide a box showing the following:

Not software question but what is a trophy point and where does a member pick up the trophy? Also, are they gold, silver or plated? Thanks.

I flipped back to the old and it's still there. FWIW

I don't miss it. It's like a broken clock, only right twice a day anyway. (that's on kitco, not on GIM)
