And if that wasn't enough, now the Text Color icon does not work...

Now it does, earlier it did not... :blink:

I also got an email notification of a new post to this topic. That makes "one in a row"... ;)

Am I imagining it - but is the text now smaller ? I seem to be finding it harder to read.

Also - the continual use of "gray" text rather than black so it makes it even harder!

I have noticed that newspaper tend to stick with black ink pn white paper as it makes it easier!

Yes, at first the text was smaller and less clear. However, I used the zoom button (on Mozilla browser) and the bigger font has continued every time I have opened the forums since.

I'm signed up to get email notices when new topics are posted. In the old forum when I clicked the "Track this Topic" link, I was taken to a page that said:

"Your subscription has been added
Please wait while we transfer you... "

Then I just waited a moment until being taken to the topic.

In this new forum, when I choose to track a topic by clicking the link in this email message . . .

"Please note that if you wish to get email notification of any replies to this topic, you will have to click on the
"Track this Topic" link shown on the topic page, or by visiting the link below:
"

. . . the page goes to notification options where the following is already selected:
Delayed Email Notification This option will send out a notification if a reply has been made and you're not active on the board.

I would like the default to be this option:
Immediate Email Notification This option will send out a notification immediately after a reply has been made, regardless of your activity.

Also new is that I have to click the "Proceed button" (another extra step). Until finally, I see this message:
"Your subscription has been added
Please wait while we transfer you...
"

Is there a way to shorten the steps and change the default email notification option?


I didn't get an answer to my question. Does that mean no one knows?
The IP Board has a forum, so maybe I'll ask over there: http://forums.invisi...m/311-ip-board/

Or would I copy/paste my post to the RootsMagic Wish List?

EDITED: I can't even read the posts at the IP Board forum because I'm not a customer. The message says, "Topics in this forum can only be read by current IPS customers. If you are a current IPS customer and are seeing this message, please be sure to login to the forum with the same email and password that you use for the client area. "

Looks like the RootsMagician will have to check into it.

Hi all.
I didn't have a problem unti I came back from vacation and was trying to “catch up”. One post by Laura caught my eye; but when I tried to reply, I got the "Register or Log on" message. Then it took me two or three times asking for a new password before I got the hang of it. I use ShortKeys©® replacement key program for a lot of things and I have a SK file entitled Famtree.shk. I've added “/rmlg” which when typed into the user ID field replaces those characters with the ID, tabs to the PW field and enters that, then tabs to and presses the sign in button."/clrb" enters "[color=#]<ARROW LEFT>" then I press the END button after entering the color code from a document I created.

Cheers, Glenn


Edited: I guess I need to find one of my last messages, so I can recreate my "sign off spiel". I know I should be able to "search for something", but what eludes me at the moment!

Silly me! The very subject is/was in the next message I would read!

However, my "sign off spiel" seems to have been lost when all the messages were converted to this new format! I do like it -- just takes a little time to learn/use it.

Silly question, but how do you log off the new forum? When I got back to the forum today, my login from yesterday was still active.

There is a clickable link labeled SIGN OUT in the upper right corner of your browser page (beneath your username)

If I hover on My Settings, it also shows Sign Out. But it is not an icon that I can click.

John, what browser are you using? I'm wondering if it might not be rendering the page as intended.

OK, another silly question?
Why would anyone want to log off?
I have never done it, I use this site as my home page. After reading the new postings and answering any I want to, I just browse to another website, never logginf off, that way I don't have to log on when I come back.

Maybe I am missing something, but I can see no need to log off.

As long as I am on this thread: Is this new forum is just about twice as slow, or does it just seem to take twice as long to load a page as the old one did?
I think it is all part of the economic stimulus thingie, trying to get some more of my money back into circulation with a high speed internet contract. <_<

"Why would anyone want to log off?"
At most my sites, I usually don't log off because I go to too many sites to remember user names and passwords in spite of keeping a list. Plus, each site seems to have a different protocol for creating UN's and PW's. Also, in some cases, even if I don't log off, the site automatically logs off when I go to another site. I do, however, log off of any money sites -- banking, investments, etc.

Cheers,
Glenn

My browsers show both the SIGN OUT and HELP links underlined and located just below my username at top right corner. They are text links only. There are no icons in the menu,

In order for me to even see the MY SETTINGS choice, I have to click on the downarrow beside my name to dropdown a menu and when I do hover, I see a yellow tooltip that opens up and reads as follows:

"Edit my settings, such as signature, avatar and more ..."

One very good reason to log off is if one accesses a site from a computer that may not be their own - such as at a public library.

For Glenn. I used to have a problem with managing multiple website access until I found RoboForm. It has a small learning curve but it's well worth it. Now, after the first login, RoboForm recognizes the site, and automatically enters my logon info. :)
