    New on Pet Talk

    I figured I would start a new thread, just to post updates, etc. the big news is the Search index is (finally) rebuilt, so when you search or use "Advanced Search," it will get results from all the posts finally.

    This also means a few new features work - if you go to your user profile - or mine, for example, there's a tab for "Post Areas" which will show you how many times that person has posted in what areas, which is kind of neat to see.

    You'll notice there's no "Home" button on the green(or blue-depending on what version you're using) bar anymore, and we put "Today's Posts" up there.

    Also, the column on the right shows people's avatars now, even those of us who have been around for a while ...

    And if you log on from a mobile device, like a smart phone, there's special version for those which should make browsing a whole lot easier!

    Thanks for putting "Todays Posts" up there, it means one less click - and I noticed earlier that Search was working again. Cool!

    Yes, it's neat to be able to see "Post areas". I still find it straining for eyes to see the text, because it's gray.

    Can that grey/blue color be changed or is that the vBulletin's standard? Yes, I know I can change to green, but I'm not crazy about that either.

    I also miss being able to click on "Replies" to check if I have replied to a thread - and a quick way to go to your profile.

    Thanks for all your hard work anyway! I'll get used to the new ways.

    When John was around, he one day noticed that he had 3 threads on top and he saved it. So I thought I'd show you, and at the same time show newcomers what PT looked like back then.

    Well, I don't know if I did the attachment right - we'll see!

    Karen - "top" still doesn't work on Firefox, and the Google gadget preview of all 3 isn't working either.

    There is a quick - instantaneous - way to go to your profile, look at the uppermost right part of the screen, to the left of "Log Out" is "Settings" and "My Profile."

    The Google Gagdet preview with all three works now, thanks for letting us know about that.

    The "top" thing is definitely a Firefox issue, Paul will look into that.

    That's no big issue for me, since I always use "back" on my toolbar. Just thought I'd mention it for other Firefox users.

    Sorry, I'd forgotten. I see it, but the text still goes over the pictures of Cat/Dog/Pet of the Day. My screen window has to be 30 cm before the text goes up above the pictures. I showed you what it looks like in another thread. Probably nothing to do about that. At least we have PT up and running.

    I just use the 'Home' button on my laptop keyboard.

    Randi, you can still do that, just click on the number at the side of 'Replies'.

    Geesh, I hadn't even FOUND the "top" button until Ellie posted about it in here. And as I use Firefox, now I know where it is but that doesn't help me, ha haaa.
    I've been BOO'd!!
    Thank you Karen, for fixing my siggy!

    I use Firefox and it doesn't matter that 'top' button doesn't work, the computer/laptop keyboard 'Home' button does the same thing, takes you to the top of the page.

    For some reason, every time I hit the buttom "reply to thread", it takes me to quick reply instead of just the normal reply. It just started doing this a little while ago.

    Hey - you're right. I have never used "home" on my keyboard, and actually had to go looking for it after I read what you posted. Amazing how observant that I am, seeing that it's the same keyboard I've had for 6+ years!!!
