    By the way, there is an option to set preferences on posting replies. I switched so it is like the old way. I would rather copy and paste links than open the window, click image from a URL and post it that way every single time. That might be beneficial to you as well.

    Did you watch the tutorial on Youtube?

    I guess I just don't like change. I'll get used to it.

    The thing I haven't been able to figure out is how to get to "unread posts". There is a button to get to my last post, but on some threads, my last post is 50 pages before the last place I stopped reading, so that doesn't work. There might be 10 pages of unread posts, so going to the end and working backwards is awkward.

    Oh booger. My spell checker doesn't work and the one included in the forum is clunky to use. Not an improvem,ent. Yeah, I am going to leave that just like it got typed.

    I can whine in purple now! Bold underlined italic purple too!
    I can pretend to censor myself while still saying what I want.

    Anyone forget their glasses? [​IMG] If you can read this, you don't need them anyway.

    So far so good. Sorry for playing on your thread. I'm just trying to get the hang of this. [​IMG]

    Reply function seems the same. Now I am off to figure out navigation!

    Edited to say: I was wrong. Reply just looks like a new post to me. Did I do it wrong?

    I made it. It weren't easy but I have arrived.

    One of those "Tah-Dah" momments.

    Hope it gets better cause it ain't working very well on my iPhone.
