    The software has been changed and it will take a bit of time for it to be natural to you. It is easy and I'm working on making it very good for you.

    If you come across an issue, please post it here, as this is where I will look for things that come up. Please do not post them all over the site as I'll miss some and will not be able to help you.

    USE CONTACT US at bottom left corner if you cannot log in for some reason.

    Your Profile is the little body in upper right hand corner. The envelope is "conversations" which use to be called Private Messages. They will look like a thread in the regular forum. And the bell is ALERTS, which will let you know new posts to a thread you are in, new conversations, or likes.

    Mark ForumS Read at the top of the site will show only all of the forum to choose to mark, if you are not in a forum.

    But as this shows, if you are in a forum, and decide to mark that forum read it will look like the below and you can choose just that forum (in example, this forum) or the site from that one click on MARK FORUMS READ.

    Hi Angie, I am seeing a few post titles but there's no actual body of the post? Were these put up after the changeover?

    For some reason, several posts were brought over and locked. And there is no content. We already have the tech that did the file transfers working on correcting this. It's something that has not happened before.

    I just wanted to let all know that the posts that were empty of content were shown in the server to have been brought over from a very long time ago. They didn't even show in vB. I had him check twice then I deleted them. And there may be about a dozen more that are here, and when found will be deleted since we cannot see any content.

    If you come across one of these strange threads, If you could grab the address that shows in the top bar and post it in this thread it will be cleaned up.

    And if you are involved in any missing threads, we all hope you will re-post and the team here will help you with your issues.

    If you are finding those, either put the links here, or in the mod forum area. What has happened before is VERY, VERY old threads that the software could not date, just stuck a date on them. The ones like that are good for removal.
