    I have a couple of issues about the new format relating to the "This Day thread" Problems with displaying images at their original size. I can restore them but thats not satisfactory. When I do that It enlarges the image, but moves it to the top of the post so that the image is no longer in sequence or forming part of the text (see my entry for 13 or 14 Jan). Then it retains a thumbnail of the same image within the text. This pretty much wrecks the formatting so that the narrative with the pictures is no longer logical or flowing. Any idea how to display images at normal size without generating another in page image? Retain the page layout in other words. Also havent been able to work out how to disable the smileys yet While Im at the big whinge, I havent tried this yet bu are there changes in the way Ive been attaching images and making it part of the text....sort of text, then image, then text again?

    So, navigating through the site, I reply to a post and then go to the next thread but I seem to keep getting kicked out and have to log in again to reply to the next post. I'm clicking the "Stay Logged In" box but it doesn't seem to work.

    Working through the issues, UI and flow as they come up. The site and forums should be a million times more stable -- that was main thrust of change. Did a lot of work in backend and testing, so transfer went great.

    Now just knocking down the tweaks and changes needed that it is running!

    @javlin Yeah I looked into a couple different styles, and will get back to that. Just wanted to get things stable.

    Well, I cleared my cache like you suggested in the other thread and it's fine now. Not sure if it was that or the other thing you did but I'm good.

    Now if this new forum could just improve my typing ability.........!
