    Thumbs up Re: Possible Downtime This Weekend

    Tom,

    I really like the functionality - but you are right, it will require a bit of design. Very, very busy!!!

    I think - actually, I hope - we don't need the Barney help that is currently on the Forums entry page. Makes it hard to fund the forum, eh...

    Also, I think FAB will like the presentation of the 'Social Groups'. I never found them in the original, but they are evident in this one. He just bailed on his 'Happy Hour' group. I sure could use a toddy today - and, it is only 8am
    Lookin' up at the 'G Fund'!!!

    Try using the default style, which is like beltway's layout. Go the bottom of the page at the left to change it.

    I can try different styles. This one happened to be the closest to TSP Talk's colors and I actually like it. Very clean looking. Of course there are things that would and will change, but compared to some of the other "skins" I've seen, I liked it.

    The default will need some updates too. It will take me a few days. Lots to do.

    Tom..I'm not apposed to change..but Some things may just need getting use to here..I'll work with it to see if my mind will settle in with the new format...One thing I don't like is opening on the home page and not the forums..Am I doing some wrong?

    Also; Ther is NO OPTION to change the default settings as you said, and you can't post Youtube videos by paisting in the url link..you have to use the Video icon button again....On the main forum page, 1/3 of the page is jammed up with crap on the right side..

    Me no like..

    Tom,
    I do not see/cannot find, how to change to the old style at the bottom of page , per above.
    Please ensure something is there!

    Personally, I don't like the new design, don't understand it. (At first, I pressed the Home Page, that OK, but then to the Message Board & I thought - OH NO, i GOT A VIRUS??? TROJAN-redirect?? OR WHAT??)
    My vote, have the old style back. yuk

    I made an adjustment so I hope you have the ability to go to the default style now (bottom left corner of page).

    I think I fixed the YouTube embedded problem too - had to install a modification.

    I will also work on bypassing the "Home" page and have the link come right to the forum - at least until I figure out a good use for it. I may eventually use that page as the www.tsptalk.com home page, but that will be another time, if at all.

    Keep posting the problems and I will work on them. Thanks!

    Unfortunately, the default style is not the "old" format, just a different format - like Beltway Talk.

    Like I told Buster, I will fix that "Home Page" link.

    I didn't expect everyone to like it. I knew many wouldn't like any change. But the new software will allow us much more functionality when it comes to new features like mobile access, blogging, social networking, etc. Nothing is being developed for the old software anymore and we would be left behind.

    By the way, it took us a year to finally upgrade from the 3rd version of VB to this version 4. They are now working on VB 5 so we're starting to catch up.

    Now, give me a few minutes while I add another KB of RAM to my Commodore 64.
    Again, please post any issues here and I will tackle them as soon as possible.

    Thanks!!

    To fix the log on, so it comes to the MB page first.

    Get to the main MB page, save to your favorites and then use that to come aboard...

    Tom, I'd like the blog pictures to fully display, but the right column appears to prevent this from happening.
