    tim333 - this is actually pretty easy.
    1. Click Latest Posts.
    2. Read whatever topic you like.
    3. Use your browser's Back button to return to the Latest Posts page. Everything you haven't read will still be displayed there.

    I feel the same way. Why come here any more if the screen glares at me like a white dwarf star? I will check in every month or so to see if it gets fixed. Lots of folks have my e-mail. Hasta luego.

    ndynis - it's there, next to your login and settings box at the top right of every page: Click image for larger version

Name:	PM.png

    If you don't see this when you have PMs, there's a chance you might have accidentally turned off notifications (if you edited Notices to remove thread subscriptions and unchecked the box unintentionally). Check Settings --> Notifications and make sure that notifications for PMs are turned on.

    WRT John Clary's problem: I have had the same issue because of different email addresses. Put simply, my ISP got bought by another company, which a few years later was bought by yet another company. Each time this happened, I was informed that I now had a new email address: same beginning, but a new ISP company name after the @ sign. But curiously, the old email addresses still worked, and all email still came to my in box. When I bought a new computer and loaded the email software on it, the new computer used the newest address for outgoing mail. I have found that when I need to enter my email address, I must use the address that THAT computer uses (I have both a desktop and laptop; one uses the latest address and the other an older address). If I don't, I get a message back saying that the email address I entered is incorrect. Is it possible that John's phone is using a different (alias?) address from the one used by his computer?

    Aha, was just checking out "-51 Commander Starlight Coupe finished... for now" & I didn't see any picture sign before I enter the post like you just showed, maby it's just my computer?
    & as for page numbers, that used to be visable before entering the post so it was easy to pick any page of choice.

    Noxnabaker - Page numbers are at the top and bottom of each topic's page, so pretty easy to get to - unless it's something else you're referring to?

    As for wondering whether there's photos: if you see this little paperclip:

    ...you'll know that there's photos posted in that thread

    Must say (or rather write) that heroes who help us "complainers" are worth a LOT!

    Sorry Clark...but I was beginning to wonder if I was invisible??? At least, your acknowledgement lets me know... you know.

    Yesterday, on an unrelated issue, I spent 5 hours on the computer and phone dealing with AT&T (broken English) Tech Reps attempting to solve other issues and I suppose my frustration there has spilled over here.

    The merger/acquisition of AT&T and Directv has been nothing short of a confusing Train-wreck! By the time I finished up with AT&T, my blood sugar reading had dropped into the 50's and there's no telling where my blood pressure had spiked! Before the day ended...I had done some real shouting! Maybe I should just take a sabbatical from IT activities for awhile. Believe it or not...I appreciate your efforts.

    I will look into the issue.

I never got an email. So, I waited for a good amount of time and resent the info. Still have not received and email. I try to stay logged on the forum using the iPhone and computer so I can check on the forum when I'm away from my laptop.

    Right now, I have managed to navigate some of the new settings (using my laptop) and have been able to set it up to my liking. I know there will be a few kinks & bugs to work through before we become as comfortable as we were with the previous version.

    Wow...am I puzzled??? I can't sign on using my iPhone? I'm using the same user email address to sign on while using my laptop computer and the same password that works on the laptop!???? But...it will not accept it! So...I did the "forgot password" steps. After filling in the requested information, I get a message that I will get an email. I have done this over and over several times since last night. But the email never comes. Very frustrating![QUOTE]

    THREE DAYS!!!! AND NO RESPONSE!!! WHAT TH' HECK IS GOING ON????

    Clark, I tried to change my settings as you recommended in post #43, but I can't save anything because it keeps telling me I have an invalid birthdate. But I can't change the birthdate on my profile. Arggggghh! I really don't want my birthdate in my profile anyway. So, I'm stuck in a loop............I also can't change anything in my User Settings because of this invalid birthdate. What should I do?

    Also, I have 2000+ subscriptions, can you get rid of these?

    Thanks for the help Clark!
