    Yeah, mine too. I used to have mine grey so I could have a sneaky look at work occasionally, but the grey has gone. I don't mind the green, but it keeps returning to orange.

    Sorry, you don't like the new layout.

    A few things have been moved, making the transition more stressful!.

    You can edit your post by clicking on the 'edit post' at the bottom (next to the reply tabs) of the post you want to edit (instead of the drop down menu where it used to be). I haven't changed the permissions for editing posts, so you should be able to edit in the same way you used to.

    The notifications might be working more effectively but you can selectively turn them off by clicking on the 'Forum Actions' tab at the top of the page and selecting "General Settings". This will allow you to choose your default style and turn notifications on / off.

    There's an A.P.P. for that!

    That is odd. Did you tick the 'Keep me logged in' box when you logged in?
    Try logging out, and logging in again, making sure the box is ticked.

    Hmmm, it might be worth clearing your browser cache and maybe checking your cookie settings.

    I have tweaked a couple of settings, so let me know if things have improved.

    The quick reply thing is a bit weird - it gives me a "you have already posted, you must wait X seconds before you can post again" message every time. Firefox 3.6.17, Calm Blue theme.

    Re: Forum Major upgrade and downtime!

    I keep getting a messsage up on my PC saying "only secure content is displayed" with an option to show all content - I press it, but it has to be done every single time I change threads

    Is this something to do with the settings on my computer, and if so, can someone please tell me what I need to change?

    Are you using Internet Explorer? You probably want to follow these instructions to stop the messages. (The exact windows/options/buttons will vary a bit depending on which version you're using - google 'only secure content is displayed internet explorer [insert version number here] to find some instructions for your version, if the page I linked to doesn't make sense to you'.)

    Re: Forum Major upgrade!

    What's the difference between the orange, blue and silver thread icons?

    Sorry but it's not very obvious to me

    and sorry if it's been asked before . .

    Thata is a very odd error message, there might some software preventing double posting and somehow Firefox sends the Post signal twice? I'm not familiar with Firefox 3.6, at least I can't remember, I am running Firefox 5.0... Maybe you're due an upgrade.

    Do you mean in the Quick Reply? If you click on 'Go Advanced' you get the full display of smileys on the side of the reply box.

    This sounds indeed like a Microsoft Explorer bug. Have you tried Meghann's suggestion?

    No, I meant more stressful, any significant change will increase stress levels, I just hope you'll all assimilate the changes and that the new features / functions will make the change worthwhile.
    I did not just upgrade for the sake of it, in fact I postponed the upgrade for a year or so to make sure the new version was stable.
    My aim is to make the Forum relevant again by increasing the ways you can share posts with your dancing friends and hopefully, everyone will realise that Facebook is not as good a discussion platform, and that by integrating the two, you get the best of both worlds.

    Not sure what browser you use, or if you have some features turned unavailable. If you click on the 'Forum Actions' drop down menu at the top of the page and select 'General Settings', you can then scroll down to the following and select 'Standard Editor of instead of Enhanced Interface, this might fix the freezes.
    Message Editor Interface:
    • Enhanced Interface - Full WYSIWYG Editing
    • Basic Editor - A simple text box
    • Standard Editor - Extra formatting controls
    When posting messages to the forums or other members, there are three interface types available to you. The simplest of these is a simple text box, while the last is a fully-fledged WYSIWYG editor, which allows you to format your text as you want it and see the results immediately.

    Depending upon the capabilities of your web browser, you may not be able to use all of these options. If you experience problems when posting messages, try switching to a different interface type.

    Ok, I found a weird permission issue with Silver Members. I have now fixed it, so this might have sorted your issue. Let me know. You might have to clear cache restart browser again, just in case.
    Franck.

    There's an A.P.P. for that!

    I also use Firefox 3.6.17 and Calm Blue, and haven't seen that problem, so I don't think that's the cause.

    Firefox seem to have changed their numbering system recently - they had lots of 3.something versions for ages, and went to 4 only a few months ago and are now at 5. So 3.6 isn't that old.

    Point take about Firefox

    As for the issue, David, could you describe how you use the 'quick reply' feature, do you click on "Reply", on "Reply with Quote" or do you just click in the quick reply box and type a reply?
    Franck.
