    How would that help? The names are those people who are online.

    If you are trying to find your posts, you can look for the icon in a thread that indicates you posted in it. Or, you can go to your profile and click on the recent posts link. (http://www.advrider.com/forums/search.php?do=finduser&u=19823)

    OK, I admit that I am frequently jealous of the well written flames and outrage the some inmates can write. I'm not that person, even though I have those feelings.
    So here goes . . . . .
    What the F... has happened to the login page?
    There used to be a nice URL that I could bookmark that would open a page on which I could log in.
    Now I have to go to the adv home page, THEN click on some stupid LOGIN button, have a form open and then fill in the fields.
    WHY?
    WTF was wrong with the other way?
    I have a password manager program that no longer works - I have to manually type in my info each time.
    And please don't tell me to stay logged in.
    Can we please have a direct link to be able to log in?
    Thanks,
    -ceej

    I'd like to put in a vote for supporting .gpx file attachments in the Regional forums as well as LDT.
    I *do* understand the issue of photos - their number and size.
    But gpx files really should not be an issue.

    I realize that you are likely using some forum product, and in many respects it is pretty good. However, when you upgraded to the current version, some user interface useability features got worse. The main menu in white under the yellow "Ride the World" is nice and very easy to see: Inmates, Photos, Site Rules, Net Posts, etc...
    However, under that is this dark grey bar with black text! almost impossible to read.
    There are also places where dark grey text appears on a black background (e.g. the Title: and Message: when doing a reply - Thread Tools and Search this Tread when reading a thread).
    All in all it is much harder to read
    Can someone take a look at this - maybe there are some configuration options that could be tweaked?

    In one of the bottom corners, there is the option to change forum 'skins.' That will solve many of your visual issues. I prefer the crash skin. The default is something else.

    OK, changing the user interface display (see post #67) also 'restored' the login page, so all is well again in ADV-land.

    You have to go to the member's profile that you want to ignore. Ignore will be one of the options on the drop down menu by the user's name.

    Took me a while too.

    Did the ability to check peoples profiles by clicking on their screen name get turned off in the last couple of days--or is my computer just acting whacky?
