OK - I applied a fix. Please let me know if that worked. If not, it's OK. There is a major update for the forum software that just became available this month that I will apply if this problem is not fixed.

Thanks, Jeff

I applied a fix again. Please let me know if the two issues are fixed (1) Editing your own posts (2) Viewing profiles.

If it is not working, first try to clear your Internet browser's cache. Sometimes your computer will store old versions of website pages.

Thank you, Jeff Cooper

Yes, today (8/6/18) a software update was installed. It was necessary for security and other purposes. The update included a new "template" for the discussion group. That is why it looks a bit different. Most of the features should be the same. This template is 100% supported by the creator, which is why we needed to switch to it. Please report any issues you experience and I will work on them. Thank you.

Ok, there is one little glitch. In all the new posts, one of the lines is blurry. Two separate lines in one, so to speak. One of your lines, Jeff, does this, then when mine registered, it's doing the same thing. So is one of Hal's in his latest post.

Thanks Cindy. I see what you mean. It looks like it has to do with the signature. It does not have enough space above it and it is blending into the text of the post. I will see if I can fix that.

when typing in a Quick Reply the color is very faint and hard to read what is being typed - can you make that darker?
Thanks

Hi there MelA,
Thanks for submitting your request. I made some changes to the style code. The text should now be darker and slightly larger when you type in the QUICK REPLY box. Please let me know if you encounter any issues. Thank you.

I notice that the 'search' page has an issue. Search results with more than 30 items are not shown. That is, results are limited to showing only the first 30.
Also, I notice there are no buttons along the bottom for indexing/paging through the results.

The pdsa.org website will undergo some maintenance on Wednesday, August 29th. It will be offline for a minimum of a few hours, starting at approximately 11am Eastern time. This discussion group will be offline during that time, but no changes will be made to the discussion group during the maintenance period. Thank you.

Hello! Will the discussion group be accessible from the home page and other pages again? It doesn’t seem to be listed anywhere, though I can obviously access it through my browser history. Thanks:)

Hmm, I posted a little while ago, but it seems to be missing now. I wonder if I canceled it instead of submitting it. I can't view my profile. Before, I would have to go to the home page and log in there then come here and log in. That option doesn't seem to be there now.

not sure if this is an issue for iPhone users, but when I look at the topics while on my phone (android) it says Last post 'time' ago by 'username' twice, instead of Topic started 'time' ago by 'username' followed by the Last post part... Not a major issue, just thought of bringing it up because I often wonder if a topic is completely new or if someone restarted an old one. :lol:

Searching for past posts.
I am trying to find an old post of mine from about 3 years ago but cannot find away to do so unless I look on each individual day of the year. Is it possible to have a search between 2 specific dates ?

I just noticed that the SUBMIT and CANCEL buttons at the bottom of a new topic or reply were the wrong color and not showing up very well. I changed the color so they can better be seen.

Also - for some reason I have not been receiving notifications about this topic, so I will go back through the "recent" replies to see if anything else needs to be fixed.

Thank you.

I can't duplicate this problem. If you click on "Private Messages" near the top-right it should take you to your profile. From there you can click on your "Connections". pdsa.org/user-profile.html

Does the "Search" feature in the menu tabs near the top help? It takes you to this page - pdsa.org/discussion-group/search.html
