Thank you so much Chris for all your hard work on creating and maintaining this forum!! I really hope everyone will give it a chance and that this will eventually replace the Yahoo group entirely. Everything here is so much more streamlined and easy to navigate. Embrace change everyone! :)

Oh and the new points files with the more frequent updates are AWESOME!

Thank you thank you thank you!

I agree!  And thanks to Chris's excellent video, I finally figures out how to "get" the posts.  Double thanks.

I have to agree, I really like this forum. I was a member of the yahoo group, but quite honestly I hardly ever read any of the posts. I had to wade through *so much* that wasn't of interest to me.

Great job Chris!

I have a quick question on how to do something.  You can click on 'show unread posts since last visit' but how do you get it to bring you to the first unread post?  it only seems to bring you to the first or the last message?

There should be a 'new' button in the topic line.

If you click that it will take you to the first unread post in that topic. 

That's the theory anyway

The button I see is labeled 'last post'.  Is that the one you mean?

The last post will bring you to the newest post. There should also be a 'new'great button in the subject line.  I will take a screenshot later :)

I guess my next question is, how do I  insert a screenshot. I put the picture url between the img tags, but guess that didn't work.:-(

Ah ha - thank you!  I thought "new" just meant it was a new topic.  I didn't realize it meant new posts.

That is something I actually need to research today.   As I haven't been able to get that working either.

I believe it has to be hosted somewhere (photobucket) and then you put the url that has it's location in between the img tags.
