As you have all probably noticed there are big differences in the look, feel and use of this forum. Hopefully all problems that we have had in the past will be easier to solve in the future.

I have notice countless advantages already but need your feedback to make it even better. Check out your PM box if you haven't already. Works so much better and makes it easy to find PM's and organize as well.

One big difference that had me puzzled for about 5 minutes is the "Upload Attachments" is not where it was before. Simply look below when you reply to a post and you'll see it under everything.

Please use this thread to keep me informed of problems and thoughts to make it better.

Thanks for your patience as I try to improve the forum.thumbs-up

Wow,

I haven't been posting for a while but have been reading a lot. The one thing that I really love with this new look is the "Unread and recently updated topics" that I just discovered on the very bottom of the fiddlerman.com/forum page.

I used to load the page with fiddlerman.com/forum/newposts/ but that doesn't work at all for me anymore. I guess I only need to remove the newposts/ part and bookmark it again.

The math seems to be just as hard. roflol

I'll have to get used to it but I think it is much better. Thanks

I can't find a way to upload a jpeg. If I use upload atachment it says file type invalid. If I try to use insewrt image it only wants a url and if I try to use embedded media it wants movie types of files.  I tried to upload a pic of me in my Fiddlerman.com cap.

I thought about that too Naska. It's not really right. I'll have to check on that. It probably didn't import the right info from the former version.

Sorry about the problems with many of you not being able to post anymore. I think I have it working correctly now but please let me know of any problems.

Secondly, I want to switch to a more interesting chatbox that among other things works with your browsers spell checker and allows you to turn on or off the new message alert sound.

For this I want your opinions. Please visit http://violaman.com and test the chatbox there for me. Let me know what you guys think.

Please give Mad_Wed her smileysd back. You know she has a hard time getting along without them.  That was like a tease putting them in the shoutbox and then taking them out, she might get a complex.

I agree with you all. I like the other one much better. However there was a conflict so great that it caused the Database to lock down and I couldn't get in again until I entered the FTP and deleted the plugin folder. I'll do some debugging and see if I can figure it out. Thanks for all your thoughts.
