    What is the "connections" feature all about? Real time chat room wannabe?

    Connections is simply like a friend's list. Almost like a way to bookmark your buddy's profile pages so that you can access their profile faster.

    What problem are you having viewing the forum? I have not heard of anyone having trouble actually viewing the message board. There has been some problems with 1 person being able to log in that I know about. And another person or two having a problem posting. But no problems reported to me about just simply viewing it.

    Kellen, I think the problem Ike is referring to (unusable), correct me if I'm wrong Ike, is in the threaded version. As it is, I have to agree, it's useless by not showing the actual posts. To see them you must click on them one by one? Very labor intensive and a huge step back from the "old site". Unless, like Halcon said, there is a "View All" toggle somewhere? Otherwise, the threaded view as an option, is not very much of an option at all.

    I really perfer the threaded version to the flat, if, and only if, it showed the posts.
    With the "flat" version, how would I have known that Andy (bigderel) had responded to my post at the top of this thread? I hope there's a fix for this.

    I really liked being able to read the first line from each thread(post) without having to open each one. It certainly saved time. I don't like only seeing the title of each post.

    Also, showing our own avatar at the top of everypage is kinda odd.
    The right side shows that were logged in already. It just seems like
    a waste of real estate and it means i have to scroll down on every
    page to get to the real info.

    Other than that, everything seems cool. Oh, one other thing.
    Do animated avatars no longer work?? On my profile page it's still
    animated but on the rest of the site it isn't. No big deal just
    wonderin'...

    Halcon said:
    I hate that in "flat" view, it only displays 5 or 6 posts at a time and you have to read long threads in pages. I just want to click the main link and read the thread.

    So I tried switching from "flat" to "threaded" view. That setup is messed up!!! Every entry gets pushed way over to the right of the screen. And from what I can see, there is no "view all" available. So, if I prefer the threaded view, it's making me click each post individually in order to read what is written.



    You replied:
    I changed the setting to display 20 messages per page. It was set on 6 before which was way too short, I agree.

    Thanks for pointing out the problem with the threaded view, I will begin trying to find a fix for that.

    ------------------------------------------
    In addition to having the same problem as Halcon, I don't see a way to tell me which post in the thread I am currently reading. I also suspect the read/un-read indicator is not reliable but that is just a suspician, I have not verified it.

    Change the size of your photo in your photo editor and then upload it again.

    I am working on the threaded mode right now. Hope to get that figured out here soon.

    The PM system we are currently using does not have this as an option. We plan on upgrading to a new PM system in the near future. Sorry for any inconvenience. :(
