It's a great update Mike, THANK YOU.

The previous software wasn't entirely responsive to mobile browsers.

The new forum now works consistently whether on PC browser, tablet browser (Safari), iPhone 4S, or iPhone 6 Plus

The image attachements that were once lopped off now appear inline, scaled properly and although tapping doesn't open the image separately, reverse-pinch to magnify seems to give a suitable detailed result.

Now if only there were more mods on hand to help nuke Russian spammers...

Yes, I'm volunteering if the hammer's big enough! :lol:

Really good move Mike...looks and works much better!

One never knows how things will work out when you "roll the dice" and plunge into the 3d printing world....we were, to say the least, apprehensive when we purchased the B9....but now firmly on the other side of the learning curve and with what we have been able to produce... in a very short time...we are firm believers in this machine! Thank you (and the very helpful) active members of this "support" forum.....glad to be a part of it! Merry Christmas and Happy new year!

Most sincerely, Danny and Libby

It took me a bit to figure it out, but all I need to do was to click on the "forgot password" link and then reset my password.

That's odd, there is no longer any connection between the main site (Wordpress) login and this forum login.

Mike was prob just me and my limited puter skills.

Also found way to mark "forum posts read" Little chechmark in the box upper right (gray part of screen) on Forum Index page . Marked those 1000 posts as read and didn't mess with "new posts". Just had to keep looking.

Getting use to the new forum, really like it, and very fast.

Glad to see someone is monitoring the forum after opening up and seeing all the spam posts. Thanks whoever is "watching".

See that latest member (spam poster) still showing up as member.

I think that everyone who sign in to the new forum should be required to complete their profile full name address and phone and email.
If possible the admin for the forum would make the name and location of individuals State and Country only be permanently viewable by all. The rest could be selected by the user as to their choice if they want to reveal the email and phone and mailing address.
No I haven't changed mine yet but it is on my LOTTD. Made that acronym up see if you know what it means.:)

Notice when replying to PM I was given "Add Files" option at bottom. Clicked to add files, picked Jpeg (two individual ones) and tried to submit, but didn't show up in PM reply.

Did notice diff when adding pics to posts. Have to insert attachments first. Didn't see this option in PM reply screen after i chose files.

Just want to know if we can attach to PM's.

I sent you two messages but they look like they are stuck in the out box
I don't see them in the sent box
deleted the first one with pics and sent another it appears to be just sitting there in the out box

Maybe send message about problem to Administrator. You can explain better than I can.
