This will not have any bearing on the forum-stretching issue, but is a handy thing to try if your connection is balky or slow: Go to that little double-monitor icon on the bottom right of your screen and click. A window will open saying "Local Area Connection Status". It has two tabs. Click on "Support". When that opens, click "Repair". There will probably be a little notice next to the Repair button saying that windows did not detect any problems with the connection. Ignore that and click the Repair button anyway.
My screen seems back to normal again and other problem I was having is resolved as well, for now. I am having some other technical issues that clearly are my computer and have help coming tomorrow to resolve. Thanks! (although, the thing with after just posting does some weird jumping around ,I can live with it.)
5. Want to edit a long post and don't want to scroll back up to the top? Double-click on the post and modify away!
6. Photobucket slideshow capability. Set up a slide show with your selected photos in photobucket, or use their button which gives the url to turn any album into a slide show. Paste the direct url here, highlight, click on the blue photobucket button, then add the dimensions you want.
Thanks Bixa,really appreciate the time and work put into this!! Just forked my first thread!!! ;D (I had occasion,for the first time to go to the Proboards support board the other evening,and was astounded btw,the number of posters,etc. what a cluster f***!!!)
You all will be seeing a bright new world as you enter anyport today. Pretty much everything is self-explanatory. However one new enhanced function might not be immediately obvious. You'll see the "nav tree" running across the top of the forum and also across the very bottom. If you'll click on the date/time (far right), it will toggle to show all the options.
There is also a spiffy new default skin. You won't see it automatically unless you open anyport without being logged in. To try it out as your very own, simply go to Modify Profile (easy, with the new nav tree!) and select the skin, "any port in a storm".
And speaking of skins, remember you now also have the option of removing the background from any skin, giving you many more choices.
Apologies to anyone who was locked out while the changes were being made.
OK. It sounds as though bjd and I (at minimum) have the same problem.
Bixa, if I look at the logo at the top in a box, this is what I see,

The problem lies in the "help" button, which we wanted to remove. You would still be able to access the host board's Support forum from the bottom of any page here. However, as anyone who has ever clicked on that button knows, it's not useful for fast, anyport-specific help. So, we'll keep working on getting our anyport banner to be completely beautiful and in the meantime, at least you can leave port!
