    I was hoping that would help with the readability of the white text too.

    Mine is gone too. I don't even have the same computer so I don't even know how to find it again! I found a cute puppy though.

    That's a mod-only feature.

    Love the new design and functionality! Wondering about the link to "all education posts" so we don't have to see the random chat posts...

    I'll see what I can do. I'll be adding more links to make new posts more accessible.

    Another option is that you can customize what you see in your news feed by choosing to "watch" certain forums, people, and threads. (The News Feed link is in the menu that drops down when you click your name on the top navigation bar.)

    Thanks! I'm sure you're busy with everything. Not trying to make demands :). I did briefly play around with the news feature, but when I "watched" a forum it seemed to just list that forum, not the discussions in it, so I'd still have to click through to each forum to see what's in it.

    I don't see a report button on threads. There are spammers again.

    I just added a "Recent Posts" link to the nav bar. I'm going to see if I can get you a link for specific
    There should be links to Edit and Report, but it looks like they are hidden. I've got that on the list of things to check/fix. Thanks!

    Oi! I just realized, I can't find an 'Edit' button to edit posts previously posted. How do I do that?

    It doesn't look like you can save that setting. I am looking for a modification but I don't think one is currently available.

    I'm seeing a report link now. I didn't earlier today.

    Change is always hard. Even when the new stuff is better.

    After playing with the new site for a couple of days, I have been interested in the most notable section. Most notable media and albums...what are those sections for?

    it is a photo gallery. I'm not sure that everyone has access yet, however.

    Yes. It's hard to adjust. It doesn't help that some are not able to access features.

    I've lost the hover preview feature. It was there yesterday but it's gone today. I'm not sure if it is the new forum or my computer, but I haven't changed anything on my computer.

    It does not work in Chrome. I think some browsers do not allow it. There is apparently some setting in Chrome that can be changed, but I'm not sure what it is. What browser are you using? I never saw it in action until I opened the forum in Firefox.

    I read that touchscreens can interfere with it too. It's not permission based, so anyone should be able to see the preview. It comes down to whether or not the device and browser support it.

    I use Chrome and the preview feature was working yesterday--on Chrome on my touch-screen laptop. How strange!

    The preview feature works in Safari pretty much as it did before.

    The preview feature is working for me in Chrome right now, but I think it wasn't working at some point yesterday. Weird.

    This might interest you @Caesar753
    https://theadminzone.com/threads/tooltips-not-working.131111/

    I have found more than one person experiencing this problem with Chrome. I haven't had a chance to try any of the recommendations yet. Maybe you'll have some luck with it.

    EDIT: FWIW I'm also using a touchscreen laptop with Windows 8. I just tested it on my desktop and it works in Chrome!

    It works for me in chrome with touch screen. It is a bit persnickety, though.

    One thing I miss is seeing the name of the person who last posted on a thread. Also, is the number of remaining posts on a thread shown when you get to the bottom of a page? If there are no more, does it just not say anything?
    Overall, I have found this easy to use.

    Okay, I see the number of replies after the thread titles so I guess that's sufficient.

    I believe you can cross off "Ability to edit posts? (this should be enabled)." I can edit my posts.
