    I deleted nothing and didn't dump the cache. All I had to do was to click "What's New?" and I was logged in, I then logged out, and logged in again. From that point I've been logged in automatically every time I've visited.

    I'm on a Mac running Firefox 3.6.2.

    Site is getting back to normal ...

    Cool - one thing - I see the global menu buttons - but I think the order is off ...
    It should be left to right - from the homepage inward, as you drill down into the site ...
    You could even make a new Button called Donate!

    So the buttons should be something like:
    Main Website (homepage) | Library | Photo Gallery | Forum | What's New

    Just my thought, from an ergonomics /transitional perspective ...

    Just to clarify - I'm using OS X 10.6.3 with Firefox 3.6.3

    This may have been said already--I don't have time to read this whole thread--but we should try to lose the "similar threads" feature in the marketplace forums. It calls up out-of-date threads.

    Push the "ignore" button in your mind? It's actually sort of useful in other forum topic areas, as much as computer search can make it. Certainly useful for those who may not be taking advantage of the "search" function...

    In case you are not aware, the login issue you were experiencing should be fixed for you. However, for the fix to work, you must delete all old forum cookies. Instructions for doing this are here:

    Let me know if you are still having problems.
    What of Google chrome? Now does that not delete the cookies automatically? Haven't had any performance issues with logging in and out. Then again I stay logged in 24/7

    Least you have the donate function back up! I haven’t looked at the latest photo gallery, to see if that is back up and running.

    Edit: 2 minutes later... Oh, I guess the photo gallery is still under maintenance as its missing from the main forum page.

    What! What is this Ping-Pong ball? It’s at the top of the page.

    I’m blind as bat.

    Edit: That’s great up and running and smoothly as before.

    Cool I love it!

    Thanks for putting all the hard work in to keep the site safe Don!

    It's been an uneventful upgrade from this end, I have been seeing small things, that seem to go away after awhile, but nothing major. I think it's all coming together now, I've adapted to change!. Remarkable, I thought that was no longer possible...

    The only thing I miss is the way the Quick Navigation button (Bottom Right of page) works. It used to take you back to the forum you were currently in with one click, now it takes two.

    No biggie, but maybe it's a setting that can be changed?

    Now doesn’t this blank icon have the means of adding an image to it, to indicate the type of forum page?

    The site needs some symbols pictures to fill them in.

    The old colours - I'm pleased.
    Logging in is just fine.

    Quick Navigation button (Bottom Right of page & return of "Send Email button"

    herki:
    Me too, I get hopelessly lost navigating some of the new features.

    Also, just above our avatar, we had a reliable:"send Email button," from which it was possible to retrieve the complete URL of the subject thread & post at hand for reference in PM 's or other new posts. Any chance to retrieve this valuable "Send Email Button?"


    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Clicking User ID here presented optional buttons including "Send Email" etc.

    I've re-enabled the send email function, which I guess must have been reset during the upgrade. However, if what you want is to get the address of a specific post, there is an easier way. Just move your mouse over the post number which is at the extreme right on the black bar at the top of each post. Right click while over this number and choose "copy shortcut". You can then paste this into any application or response.

    The quick navigation issue is a bug. I've confirmed this on the Vbulletin forum. Clicking in the center of the box is supposed to take you to the displayed forum and not open the drop down box. Opening the drop down box is supposed to be actioned by clicking on the down arrow. The hope is that the next point release will fix this, but it has existed through the last couple of updates without being addressed.
    Regards

    Default Font & Default Font Size?

    Thanks for all the hard work Don. I'm sure this wasn't all fun.

    The first thing I noticed with the new layout is the combination of font and font size. Looking at a previously saved thread we got 10 pt Verdana, now it seems to be down to 8 pt Tahoma. This is on the small size for older eyes. Moreover, Tahoma italic doesn't exit. Windows will happily "make it up" but this creates characters that lean too much forward, making it harder to read. Granted, I can "zoom in" to make the font size larger, but this doesn't fix Tahoma "italic."

    Any reason for changing to 8 pt Tahoma?

    The font specification in VB4 has changed from point size to pixel size. This is to be in conformance with internet standards where the text based point size is really inappropriate.

    I don't fully understand the difference other than the fact that point size is meant for printed text, where 1 point is 1/72" and 1px is exactly 1 pixel high on a display monitor. What's not clear to me is how pt translates to px on a monitor They are definitely not one for one.

    The old version specified a 10pt font whereas the new version specifies a 13px font. On my monitor, 10pt Veranda and 13px Veranda display as the exact same size under IE8. I don't know why they don't on your display. I have checked with a number of different programs that allow the display of px or pt specified fonts, and 13px fonts are definitely identical to 10pt fonts in all of these programs on my display.

    Update: Right now I am accessing the site from a computer running XP and IE6. The font on the forum displays as exactly the same size as the 10pt Arial used in the Windows system setting.
    Regards
