I haven't received a single email from the forums since the change over. If someone posts a new topic I don't get an email. I haven't received any emails related to this thread except from you and Janet H and they are more like personal messages than forum messages.

Update - appears my problem is with Internet Explorer 7.0. IE 6.0 (with machine and software's higher security settings and more firewalls) flies compared to what I'm seeing with the IE 7.0. Shall I bump this over to the tech support thread? David

Hmm... If one works fine and the other doesn't I'd guess it's some system configuration issue.

Have you ever considered using Firefox as a browser? It's free and more secure, with a built in spell checker and much more secure...

I downloaded/installed Firefox & it has made a difference. I don't understand why the new VB isn't compatable with my IE 7.0, but at least with the suggestion to use Firefox, I've found a workable solution to accessing the Forums.

As to the statement that Firefox is "more secure", I think that's a matter of opinion. http://news.cnet.com/8301-1009_3-10190206-83.html has a recent article about it that is worth reading.

Bottom line, if members are having slowness issues with page loading/scrolling on IE 7.0, trying Firefox might help.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

This is really, really weird! I'm on a different computer with IE 7.0 this evening, and the forum works well with it. It is a different version (later version). Will update the other computer over the next few days and see if that's it. Tonight, I'm running IE 7.0.6001.18000. David

My husband's desktop (also running IE 7.0) works fine with the new Forums. It's just my laptop & the new Forums that aren't compatable. Go figure.

Firefox is more secure because of this thought.

IF you were a terrorist, attempting to cause as much terror, pain and suffering as possible, Are you going to blow up Grand Central Station at rush hour. Or the bus stop in "Nowhereville" at 3am when you are the only person for 5 miles in all directions?

Every PC shipped (or so it seems) ships with MSIE, Firefox enjoys just enough share of the market to get Microsoft's attention, but frankly Today's "Hackers" are divided into two groups

One group is not far removed from the original hackers (The word hacker refers to the days when hackers were good guys who would buy a computer and literally hack it to pieces in order to figure out how it worked, then they wrote books and articles to tell others how it worked) These folks enjoy the challange, but don't wish to cause damage, they find a security flaw, they report it and it gets fixed. Now these folks do attack Firefox because it's "More secure" however... They tend to be harmless.

The Terrorist Hackers go for MSIE cause.. Well why go for a small town bus terminal when you can as easily blow up Grand Central Station. They are in it to see how much damage they can do and nailing fire fox only gets 'em a small pool of victims.

By the way, I think that sentencing them to life on a desert island with the only communications being by carrier pigon is about the proper punishment.


As for this new forum.. I still do not like the way it works "New posts" shows all new posts in all forums, Including the one I want, but it's a pain in the anatomy to have to manually filter..

They need "New posts" to be forum by forum

Maybe it's not so much a "more secure" issue but instead a "less appealing to attack" matter. Being as FF has much less marketshare than IE, they aren't as satisfying a target, as you pointed out, John-D.

Anyway, thanks for the tip to go to Firefox to access the Forums. So far, so good for me.

Beautiful!!

Absolutely beautiful job!! Some of my solo RV'ers have emailed me that they have had a hard time logging on - resetting their password, but I've instructed them on how to do it in detail so hopefully they will all get on and enjoy the new playground!! GREAT JOB!! Love the ease of inserting images too!

I used the new Chat Room last night. I am very impressed with it. It took me awhile to familiarize myself with it. I especially liked the sounds.

1. Not seeing Private Messages. My inbox says 0, but I recently received 2, and when I link to them from my email notification, the login and page are via the old version.
2. Lost IRV links. A lot of useful information on other IRV threads was found via links embedded in newer threads. Now you get a dead end page.
3. The text contrast or distinction of a link is not easy to see. Hard to distinguish a link from the surrounding text.
