    I like what I have seen so far and no issues as of yet and I don't expect any.

    @jenel I really appreciate your vote of confidence. Can you pass me some of that because I think it would help me out! LOL! Things should be fine but you know i have broken the forum many times doing "Routine" updates. There is no such thing as Routine anymore. Things are 50 times more complicated than 10 years ago.

    you will get there!!!
    ...you always do (...although you have been known to take the scenic route from time to time!! ;) )

    truly...thanks for all your effort and you do to keep the forum up and going for us !
    you give us a place to go ...and once in awhile you give us something to whine about...but then you always make us happy again ...without the bad times...we wouldn't recognize the good times ...who else can please so many fickle women ??
    ....just think ...where would we be spending all out time if you weren't here to keep the forum going??

    The only thing that I have noticed is that we lost the "back to the top of the page arrow". (I hope that makes sense.:confused:) That was really helpful!

    Never mind! We got it back!

    I thought I lost my In Box and Alerts that were at the top of the page but I found them:D
     
  9. latitude LIFETIME MEMBER Elite

    Before, when I clicked on a share it would come up to view. If there was more than one share it came up with a left and right arrow so I could view them all. Now I have to close each one and click on the next to bring up another one. Is this possibly just something I am doing wrong (my computer & my brain don't always play well together lol) or is this something that has changed?

    @latitude you may need to clear your cookies. Cached pages in your browser. That may help.

    Thanks Ryan, I did do that but it didn't work. It's not the end of the world though. On the scale of 1 to 10 it is pretty low in importance.

    @latitude I will look into this again for you. It may be a setting for all I know.

    I have adds covering all of the responses and comments on people's postings. It's usually the same ads all over everything.
    Please Ryan help! Thank you for all you do!

    ...here is a little "bug" that needs your special attention Ryan :rolleyes::oops:o_O

    I am quite often posting links for people ...but recently I post a live link in my comments and post my reply ...and then the next time I am in the thread I notice the link is no longer a live link ...is there a reason that is happening?? .....and can it please be fixed??

    it is starting to get annoying o_O .....sorry!

    Can you post a screenshots because I am not understanding.
     
  20. paulakw "P" Staff Member Staff

    I don't remember what threads (or what forum even) it was that I had the problem...but I posted a live link to another thread...
    but then later when I revisited that page...the link was no longer live...I had to edit my post and cut the link and repost it ...it was live in my preview...but after posting it would go dead ....didnt stay live...it was just "text" not a link that you could click on to take you to the page

    I have found that if I leave a blank line between my comments and the link
    and then a blank line after the link that it will remain a live link
    such as this

    Wrapcandy Elite Main Sharing Boardhttps://wrapcandy.com/ourcommunity/forums/wrapcandy-elite-main-sharing-board.6/

    as opposed to posting the link right after my comments without a empty line in between like this
    Wrapcandy Elite Main Sharing Boardhttps://wrapcandy.com/ourcommunity/forums/wrapcandy-elite-main-sharing-board.6/
    as an example... ...but now it probably wont do it ...and like I said...not sure what forum I had the problem in...if that would make a difference
    ...o_O

    but, for now...I have found a way around it ....if I find a problem with it or find another thread where my link is no longer live...I will message you again so you can check it out!

    I have begun seeing large ads on every single thread that I visit, not at the top like they used to be, but in some ones post, attaching a screen shot of what I mean... I don't know how to get rid of if either.:confused: Ryan, it appears in this thread right above your answer to Paula.

    Over half of them are wrapcandy posts. The are suggested posts based on browsing and search terms. If you notice 4 of them are wrapcandy posts from the forum.
    I want to place them at the end but can't dive into the forum templates today.
