what fresh new hell is this?

Suddenly I can't reply to a thread. I want to tell Regality that I've registered at the alt. gardening forum, but can't find a "reply" button. Aaarrgghh!!! This whole thing is turning into an object lesson on what happens when you fix something that isn't broken!

Sandra, do you see Add a New Comment under a post?

You cannot Reply to the first Post in a thread. All you can do is Add New Comment. Then, you can Reply to any new comments that are posted.

Clear as mud?

Thanks, Ann and Carole. I did not realize that Add New Comment was the initial reply. Sheesh... it's not all that intuitive, is it? Or am I just dumber than a bag of nails?

No, Sandra, it's not intuitive at all--at least not to me--and you're cetainly not dumb as a bag of nails (or, a box of rocks, as they like to say in Chicago). Last week I actually phoned Taunton in desperation to ask how to post a reply.

Yep, clear as mud. I get that part. We are all a wee bit cranky and I hope this gets resolved.

Uhh, guys, how does one go about getting rid of the orange stuff? And fix the font? I'' be eternally grateful for any help you might be able to render...

Caroljay,Me too! Still have lots of orange and the font is the same!! A few of the posts have large black fonts, but I don't know how they did it unless they copy and pasted. Too much work for me!

Sandra, if you aren't replying to a specific post, you can still go to the top and check "add new comment" or whatever it is, and your comment will not be indented. Not intuitive, but what else about this change is?

Re fixing the colour and font (post #68006, reply #11 of 24)

Re fixing the colour and font size - Peter did it using Adblock - for some reason, blocking the Taunton banner ad the top of the page, and the side ads, changed the colour scheme from orange to a very legible blue. I'll try to track back the directions he gave to Adele, and post them here.

I'm using adblock too, geeze, I'd HATE to see what you all see w/out it. Sounds painful.

Ok, guru, what will you see without adblock? I am the least computer literate person here and I see everything fine. Of course, I have sat out in the Tucson sun too long. Seriously, Duane, what are these people seeing that I am not.

I've finally broke down and did some minor testing over here, nothing ground breaking, but I'm a little more comfortable.

Things are still primitive for me, but I am trying.

I'm not going to give up just yet!

I'm hoping that the 'Techies' around here will help us, once they get their feet wet with it.

I've noticed that people like Pedro are quiet about it so far,...maybe,...just maybe they will make it all easier.

I can only hope. :-)

Not to be rude, but many other folks are trying to minimize their taglines in order for the amount of excessive scrolling we have to do now to be minimized. Not so important on a shor (as yet) thread like this) but just a thought. ;o)
