    I still don't think I broke it . . . but if I did, it wasn't my fault :30:

    I didn't know we were suppose to behave. No one told me. If someone tells me that they told me I was suppose to behave, I will deny it. ;D

    Hi Terry, I cant see where to change the theme. When I click on the Default Style button, it seems to just refresh the page.
    I have logged out and in again, no joy.

    Hi John
    You may of missed my earlier post today regarding trialling a mobile theme,it covers all the android and apple products,to make the forum easier to access on a mobile device using a stripped down theme,once logged in you can change the theme back to anything you like

    Hopefully I didn't break it - I wouldn't want to be known as a problem child ;D

    I thought that the chatbox had been removed after the problems we had experienced because it disappeared yesterday. I switched my theme from Totally Pro back to
    Default and there it was. I guess it is not showing on the Totally Pro theme on my computer unless I did something to it. :confused:

    Are we supposed to be behaving ?

    This new one is better in that respect. It handles member behaviour far more intelligently.

    Thanks Pearl. Can't see a way to make myself invisible,
    but no worries.

    I seem to only appear in the side box when I
    am actually posting (shouting???) then I vanish until
    I shout again. Guess you stay in the chat box ONLY while
    actually typing and hitting shout???

    Chuck it tells you in the side box who's chatting but you can opt out by making yourself invisible.

    hokay! played about a bit and found that if I enter some
    text into the long, blank, UNLABELLED box and click SHOUT
    it works. Silly me. How obvious.

    Having worked in the computer industry since about 1967,
    I am a bit of a dunce with some of this new stuff.

    For example, I can no longer figure out how to send a message
    on the chat box, nor does the chat box tell me who's on
    as it did just t'other day.

    (Wish it could be left alone just long enough for me to learn it before it changes again.)

    Much Faster

    I think Tony deserves another "atta boy" for finding and changing the chat function. The whole site seems faster when loading now.

    Have to say I like this new one, looks less complicated, fewer buttons to press by mistake :D
