    Posts often get lost if you don't view new posts. There's a big fat button for this at the top of the page!
    If you view new posts regularly you should follow it up by 'Marking all Forums read' so next visit only the 'Newest' posts show up.

    I'd like to know how other members surf so I can see if I'm missing something...

    Posting:
    When I find something that I want to share I usually try to get a logo or image to put the link in. Then I add a reply where I copy and paste a quote or more pictures so you have an idea what the link deals with.

    For some reason I can paste into the quick reply editor but not the main editor, In firefox. In IE I can paste into the main.
    I can paste into the main in firefox at every 'OTHER' forum site except CoolSciFi?

    The thumbnails have been fixed, thanks. We just upgraded the gallery to the newest version and there was a slight bump in the road as we went along.

    The random quote box on the home page is temporarily turned off. Recently I upgraded the forum software and rather than re-install the quote software I'm rethinking it because of the problems people have had in the past trying to submit new quotes. I've have an alternate Plan B up my sleeve for quotes.

    For the random gallery...... um, works for me. :confused:

    I almost forgot... Swirlinator, you were right: The random gallery hack was broken. When I upgraded the vBa Gallery software to version RC4 it introduced some new security permissions that broke the random image module. It should be working again now.
