Overall, I love it! :D

One comment: I get blocked by the expanding "Jump to:" selection box when I try to click on the previous pages and my cursor is coming in from the lower right corner of the page. Maybe the selection box could require a click before expanding, or just a longer hover. But don't change it just for me. I can adapt. Does anyone else get hung up by this?

Hmm, I don't think so. I suppose it was developed that way so the main (administrative) setting could be used to balance the load of serving up page info.

Ok, I moved the poster checklist links to the drop-down when the mouse is moved over the poster username.

Looks like this:

Yeah. I'm having the same issue. I'm sure I can adapt as well, or some of your suggestions might do the trick.

I am a computer dummy. In some of the strings (like this one) I am unable to see some of the prior posts. I see who posted, because their photo and screen name are visible, but their posts are missing. Maybe I have an old browser or something?

Hmm, a few people have seen this problem. Can u post the browser and version you're running? It might also be a Java update that's needed on your computer.

If you have that problem, you can always switch back to the old forum format (prosilver) by changing Board Settings/Edit display settings in User Control Panel.

Windows Internet Explorer 8, is that what you need? Also, when I hover over this topic on the homepage, I can see what you wrote. But when I open the string your comments are gone and just your photo and screen name are visible. Thanks Bill!

Ditto. Pic but no comments.

Any chance a clearing of browser cache fixes it?
It doesn't happen in my browser so I can't replicate it

Could someone having the problem display the page source and see if the missing post data is in the page but just not displaying?

I'll look into it more in the am...
