Arrow Chris P and All:

I'll have to look through the <extensive> VBulletin documentation to ascertain if there are any solutions to these problems. I sure don't see any menu options that will help. These are all probably examples of the bugs to be found within this version.

What I meant earlier was that if there seems to be a difference between the "Today's Posts" display, depending on whether you are logged in or not, then it may not just be a simple matter of showing all posts from that time backwards 24 hours. I have looked and cannot locate how this function is defined. There must be a reason why the displays are different, so I will keep looking. But, as Chris says, once you know what to do, maybe it won't really be a problem.

Thanks for the comments and even more for your patience.

Talking Avatars

Here's another issue. Whenever I change my avatar, it always comes out distorted and I have to ask for Tim or How to fix it. I know it's something I'm doing and it's not a big deal, but still it's annoying. Drat!

I'm getting a new German Shepherd show puppy at the end of May and I'll need to change my avatar so everyone can see the new little boogar.

Can you tell I'm excited?

Debbie:

That "distortion" also has happened to me as well...

In your case,dear...it could be that someone ( ME ) is tampering with your settings as a payback for stuff. You never know.

Congrats on the new puppy....and be prepared for Carmine taking a chunk o' flesh outta you for making him number two. I emailed him and hipped him on what you did. He's over at Debbie'sAFink@Purina.com


Seriously,let me know if it happens again to you. It does do that with me as well,Debbie.

Avatars distort when you exceed the size limitations, which are now set at a hefty 175 x 175 pixels. Most other sites with avatars limit you to 60 x 60 or so.

So long as you don't get greedy, all should be well.

For your information How, Carmine is very happy to have his nephew coming to live with us. This pup is from one of Carm's sisters.

And Carmine also told me he saw you perusing the "Hot violins in the buff" website. Shame shame... as if you don't get enough of the violins here. (how><me)

I would change it more often but I don't like bugging anyone over avatars

Looks like I gotta add Carmine to my "hit list",Debbie. He's got a big yap too. I wonder what else he's been saying.

Can't trust these Germans...or shepherds,for that matter.

Do you have any control over how soon users are logged out through inactivity?

I find that the time taken to write even a medium-sized post is long enough to be logged out. Then when I try to log back in, I see an "Invalid Thread specified" error message (I suspect this may be browser-related; I use Firefox).

Dear Chris:

Tim would know the answer to that,sir....You are not alone as this is the second time I have heard of this issue.

Hopefully Tim can help Chris....

Hey all,

Chris:

I used to have exactly the same problem, and discovered that the best way to avoid this happening is when you enter your username and password in their boxes, tick the "Remember Me" icon right next to them. Provided your browser isn't shutting down for some other reason, this should stop you from getting logged out through inactivity. Try that and see if it works.

Hope that helps!
Cheers,
Adam.

Thanks for the tip. I'm trying it now.

Yes, it does seem to work!
