HE'S NOT THE ONLY ONE! Thius forum is much less user friendly in the new format. I'm thinking of going elsewhere - even if it means paying!

It's easy but not as easy as it used to be which means the web designers have failed. Just remember to change the "link text" to something more appropriate.

I'm in agreement with Hondaman.

On a Forum such as this, which presents itself as a source of Information for those that are not necessarily familiar with Computers, it has suddenly become inestimably more complex.

The Link Icon, for example, is almost meaningless unless you are a Geek.

The technique to Close a Thread is inscrutable.

And as for the My Posts, the less said the better.

It still remains a great place for us Regulars to visit but I fear that there will be a paucity of Novices.

I think the problem lies with those that wrote the Software, by the very nature of their skills they are familiar with all the Internet conventions and have forgotten how little, many of our Visitors know.

I heartily agree with you.

I am finding that I only visit once or twice a day rather than the 8 - 10 times I did before.

I'm afraid that they do have a point PCA, what were simple things have taken a bit of sinking in, and are yet to be understood by some.

According to the instructions on first opening the world icon for posting a link, you should put the title in quotes after the web address http://www.wherethe hellever.com/"check this out man" But that doesn't work at all.

When you put the title in the highlighted link text space, if you don't put the restart cursor in the right place you end up with the link and the full written address in the middle of a sentence with double paragraph spaces that makes it all visually very untidy.

I have to agree. One step forward and two back;-)
