Hi Steve
I use Mozilla and Windows 10.
WBF is one of my featured top sites. WBF duly appeared after a couple of visits to the new site but when I try to log in in to WBF it doesn't log me in and a data error message appears.
Any advice would be appreciated.
The new site is great apart from that.

I use Firefox as well (Mozilla) and it working ok. Can you screen grab the error and post it? Are you sure you have the correct user and password. Arn't you logged in now to post this?

What is your permissions status? I can then check.
Hi Astrostar,
Not even sure how to check that, just figuring that I am just your typical humble member with a small gear addiction who is a tad ocd and really loves/needs to be able to correct my many hastily typed typos lol.

The login is fine and WBF posts appear in my inbox and from those I can go straight into the site.
WBF has been one of my top sites which is there for me when I open Mozilla and enables me to go to the site. The new site has appeared there with my other topsites but wouldn't log me in. I've deleted it a couple of times and tried when it reappeared with the same data error result. It's not appearing in the top sites at the moment so can't do a screen grab.

how do we get the threads to start with the latest and go down the earlier posts? I always preferred that so i dont have to keep scrolling down.

I have no edit tab for my posts, but, I can just hit "post reply" and then edit what I have written and then hit "post reply" again. It seems to work but may be different for different users.
Neither do I.

Everyone has an edit tab. It is at the bottom of the empty post box and represented as 3-4 little dots. It’s there

Now the ddk pops up but without the industry connection but still no way to edit.

David,I am looking right at your edit button. What was your moniker that is missing.I think a lot of this is merely a function of tweaking the uaergroups permissions to where they were but as far as an edit button I see yours in what you just posted

Dear Steve et al.

Congratulations.

Suggestion Box and FAQ thread? yields a not found (404?) database error. I went there first to see what I might learn about the new layout, before making any suggestions.

Tried that again and now the thread opened, but it is closed to input.
And again - that thread is gone!

Suggestion: I'd like (once again) to see View Count - how many views for a given thread. "Is my thread being read?" seems like it might be a common question of thread creators. Am I not seeing this, perhance?

So I gather one clicks on the time of the last message to go to the last message? Okay many new things to discover...

I had that question as well. It appears you can click on the time associated with the last post to go to it.

The Privacy option:

"Show your online status This will allow other people to see when you are online."

does not appear to be working or I don't understand it. I see my 'handle' wherever 'members on-line' is shown, so I assume others see it as well.

I seems I now have the edit button at my posts, so all is good. Must have changed overnight.

The views are present for every thread if you look at the forum the thread is in it tells you how many views and posts

as for seeing the most recent post first rather than the way we have it now....we have always had the mosts in chronological order with the newest post at the top

I will check on the FAQ's
