    what do I need to do to go to last post of a thread?


    and why the long time delay on posts?

    Lots of lag server side right now folks. It may be causing a lot of the delay in posting, editing posts, changing options, etc. This is same issue that led to Baldy pulling the site back down a little while ago. If you are hovering, clicking, mousing, spitting, or cussing and nothing is happening that's most likely why.

    It's so slow that I thought it was 1996.

    I know it's very early but at some point I sure hope the 100 posts per page comes back, please!

    and is there anyway to move all that stuff on the right side of the Forums page to the bottom like it used to be? I don't need to see my avatar and all that other stuff every time that page is up.

    Thanks.

    Do you get a menu box where you type? There should be a menu box right above the place you type. Right next to the picture button is a smilie button.

    Quoted text and page nav tiles seem a little smallish on ios8.4

    Good work!

    Pics don't work, Using chrome, I see this:

    <a data-flickr-embed="true" data-header="true" data-footer="true" href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/rtadlock/19553773066/in/dateposted-public/" title="Ibis Mojo HD3"><img src="https://farm1.staticflickr.com/503/19553773066_7d686bf67d_b.jpg" width="1024" height="768" alt="Ibis Mojo HD3"></a><script async src="//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

    It's hard to read, even to look at, maybe it's the white on black.
    Overall, I think the change sucks.
    Sorry.

    You can change the skin by clicking on the skin name in the bottom left corner. I'm using Black Responsive and it looks like the old site.

    Your code is HTML and isn't allowed now. It leaves us open to malicious hackers. All the ride reports with HTML will need to be fixed once we get the bugs worked out. Baldy is working on this as we speak.

    Thanks to Baldy and all who've worked on the switch to the new software! I've done these types of things in my career and would run screaming from any new ones, so many kudos and thanks are due to you! :bow :clap

    (so happy that the smilie codes still work!)

    Where can our subscribed threads be found now? I've looked but I have yet to find them. Do we have to go back and subscribe to them again?

    Searched for an older thread on Google, found the link. No thread when I tried to click on it.
    Will some of these threads be back later?

    Thanks for getting and keeping the place up and running.

    We have to wait for Google to reindex...and they do that on their own time. :dirtdog However, when we were posting on the test server, we were getting indexed in near real time. Hopefully it won't take long.
