I posted in Wayne Allyn Root topic. First, I had a heck of time time even finding the topic. then, after I post, it doesn't even come up in the search. When I did post, it would only allow me to post 4 quote boxes, no matter where they came from. I guess 4 boxes is the limit. idunno. I tried to post a graphic in the U.S. Senate topic, and got an error saying that format didn't work. png format. Sorry. I know it's an unpopular opinion, but I don't like this change one bit. (And I didn't even mention it's harder to read.)It's 4 by default. Foggy can change the limit in the admin panel.

Dear Rooster-in-Charge, First, kudos on an amazingly smooth change-over. Even though I'm temperamentally disposed to destest even small changes in internet interfaces, I agree with Doc C that the new board is cleaner and easier to grok. I would really be happier if spellcheck worked with Firefox, but maybe that will happen eventually. Some people reported problems with chat tonight. For me it was rock solid. I have one small request. The chat buffer only seems to span about 15 minutes. Would it consume too many resources to expand it to several hours? It's just text, after all. As to why someone would want to scroll through several hours of chat, all I can say is de gustibus.

I'd like a million dollars, please. Also, too, a pony. Maybe throw in a cabana boy and a unicorn?

Once you have clicked on the button for the unread posts in a thread you can't click on it again to get back to it. All you can do is go to the last page. Plus all my prior suggestions.

Choice of ascending/descending post order for threads, please. That's a universal setting. Individual users can't change it. I change it for everybody or nobody. I'm working on the other requests. Some I can do, others I can't. Some things are better about this system, others not so much. But the old system crashed last week. It was growing increasingly unstable. I had to do something, because if it totally broke, I'd lose everything. This system will work until we have 5 million or more posts.

It said I had 17,465 posts before I opened up the new board. I added 65 as an estimate of how many posts I've had since Monday. It's not exactly accurate, but it's close.

Now hold down your CTRL button and press F5 to see my new logo I just made. Send any complaints to go_climb_a_rope@thefogbow.com. If you really don't like it, press *6 on your phone.

I love the new logo. Which brings a new request. How does that get associated with the bookmark's icon? In other words, when I click and drag the icon from the current url address box to my bookmark toolbar, what do you have to do so that I get the new logo on my bookmark toolbar? (Feel free to ignore piddly requests. You're doing a fantastic job. :P )

I think you can get the favicon on your bookmark toolbar, but not the logo. Sad trombone! :trombone:

Is there any way to get HTML code to work here? An example would be embedding Tweets from Twitter?

Forum programs haven't allowed HTML for a few years, because they can be used by hackers to damage websites. We couldn't use HTML in phpBB, either. It's a security issue.
