    Congrats on the new forum!

    It looks like posting a pic is compulsory so here's mine.

    Duh.... looked and looked for that and didnt see it. Maybe the browser window on my laptop was not open enough. I saw "Like" but not "Reply" or more likely coffee must not have kicked in.

    its like I went to sleep and someone came in and moved all my furniture around!! I just whacked my knee on the coffee table in the Inglenook. Looks nice Mr. Craig. Lets see if this old dog can learn new software interface.

    If you get 8 million points, you get a trophy carved by a member with a chainsaw from a large BL round! :D

    I was about to say the new site is slow and clunky but it was my BROWSER . Now using Google chrome, like lightning compared to Mozilla Firefox. Something is seriously wrong with firefox.

    Click on the double A in the upper right hand corner of your reply screen. Then click on the "Use Rich Text Editor" on the lower left of the new reply screen and you can pick your favorite color from the hidden samples.
    Courage!

    Yeap, definitely going to take some getting used to. My head is spinning, and my eyes are going nuts LOL. I'm sure it is great once we get used to it.

    Hmmmm, maybe you've got an older version? I've got Firefox and Chrome on here and there's not really much speed difference...

    I like just scrolling down to post. Putting multiple quotes in a reply is easy too, no cut-and-paste.

    Lovin' it so far. Thanks, Craig! :cool:

    Hovering over a thread topic and getting the first several lines is handy when the title isn't very descriptive.

    This is very nice. I've seen other forums "upgrade" and wondered what they thought they accomplished. Your new forum is a real improvement.

    Glad you like it - more goodies to come.
    I will get the two letter search working soon (PE LP VC, etc.)
    Will also get the speed increased as we go! Lots of possibilities.

    Firefox is 10.0.2 Really slow you type and the letter takes a second or two to show up.

    Firefox here and no speed issues. Page loads in the blink of an eye.

    Yeah, I fixed up some stuff - I think issues were related to reindexing and a lot of cache stuff still filling up from the old board. This board should end up being faster when all is said and done.

    I'm not seeing where/how to do multi-quotes. :(

    Super Cedar just wanting to say hello, thanks for moving forward. I hear the advertising rates will drop significantly. Can we warm up the background just a shade? I was fond of the old Hearth.com blue.o_O:eek::confused::oops:
