Hi Nick...

I think you may need to have a serious conversation with your hosting or dedicated server provider...

Jey guys, here's a problem I am having with this new site and maybe you can help. Some of the replies I am reading are starting at the top and some are starting at the bottom or on the next page even. I think the newest replies should be last so you can scroll to them and catch the ones you may have missed. How can this be changed? Also there was one where a guy posted using really large font and everyone that replied to his post, repeated his post. It took up mega space and caused multiple pages. When replying, isn't there a means of eliminating the original posters post?

I DO find that I don't come to this site as much as the old simpler one though I DO like the owners picture thread the best!

Thanks

Ace

Ace,
I know that when someone replies to a message hitting the QUOTE button, the origional message that is the topic comes with the message!
I did that here. your first problem I will check into. Seems there is a navigation issue! I will test some more. and get back to you.

Ace, and others,
You can always put your cursor after the part that you don't want to show in the reply and just hit the backspace key.
Alternatively, you can highlight the part of the reply you don't want to show and hit the backspace key.
If you don't want to quote the person at all, hit the reply button at the bottom of the page, not the Quote button.
To have the unread posts come up first, someone has said there is a setting in your prefernces panel, I'm not sure, I'll check.

I just checked and you can go into your profile to the section that says "look and layout", Scroll down until you see, "show new posts first". Click on it, scroll down to "save", click on it, and your done. Now you can go to the main page and try it to see.
That should do it.

Another sort method is available on the main message board that you arrive at after selecting Click here for quick start.

If you click on the individual headings it will sort the posts in different order, after the sticky posts.
For instance, Subject will sort by alpha order, Started by will sort alphabetically by posters name, Replies and views by numerical order and last post by date posted.

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body. But rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, a good Reisling in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming:  WOO HOO, what a ride

Hi Ace,

Looks like some good answers - does that help with the display question you had?  Hopefully making things more convenient.  And more posts from Ace   ;D

Possibly Nick or myself could remove the the gigantic font tags if we see it is causing problems on a particular post - e.g., making a thread difficult to read.  At least on the replies.  That might be an option.  Or if we are notified there is a readability issue.  That way the text could stay, but fonts could shring on replies. 

That's the best I am coming up with early Monday morining.   :)

Hope this helps, Phil

Thanks for all the replies that were very helpful. I went in the profile and changed the setting and now everything seems to be in order where as I can read only what hasn't been read!  There were times I was reading the same thing two and three times and times when I was looking at the same pic two or three times. It got to be annoying to say the least but now it appears to ok! I knew it must have been on my end and haven't tried all the toys yet but I figured it would be faster to just ask!  ;D

Thanks again... Ace
