    Hi all,

    When did we switch to Xenforo? Was there a thread about it somewhere that I missed?

    Getting along with the new layout ok... "forum jump " is a little rocky... uploading stuff appears to be quite a bit less involved

    Overall, nice job with the new look !!! :D

    It's working for me. Typing in answers, posting drawings, getting quotes in my post...no problems.

    I miss the full size drawings. Maybe new glasses would help.:cool:
    I also get slow response sometimes and a message that AAC is not responding, recovering web page. Could be me. Windows 8.

    No time delays here!:)

    My bank page stalled this morning, but my line to AAC is as fast as anyone could want. Less than a second to load a page, consistently.

    I was having problems with the drawings/schematics too, until I figured out that you need to click on the written description of the "schematic" not the picture in the thumbnails. Just clicking the picture gives another thumbnail in a new tab. Clicking the words gives full size in a new tab. Win8 and firefox

    Blah, sometimes the multi-quote works, and sometimes it don't. And where the heck is the "code" and "quote" buttons?


    And by "quote button" I mean when you type in text and want to wrap it in quotes, like the old format.

    It's right between the video button and the drafts button--it's labeled "insert". Click it and you get a dropdown with those options.

    What the heck is a video button and a draft button? And where is the dang-gum spell checker?

    In the top button bar of the reply pane there is a button for videos (actually, "media") and a button (with an image of a floppy disk) called "drafts". Right between them there is an "insert" button.

    As for the spell-checker, I'm getting red squiggly lines on wrong words, though that may just be my browser.

    It's the one that look like the American flag. I see. And red lines just make me guess.

    I don't remember a spell checker other than the red lines. Did we used to have a full-featured one on the old VB software?

    I wouldn't call it full featured, but it did try to guess the word and give a correct spelling to select. Worked OK for old dyslectic folks like me.

    BTW, I have sex daily! what I mean is, I have dyslexia.

    In that case, hopefully they re-add this feature.

    I remotely remember a spell checker button in vB, but I never used it. I have Firefox apply its own spell checking in every insert-text field of my browser. If you work of Firefox, maybe this will be a global replacement for you? It wouldn't surprise me if other browsers had that feature too.

    Hello,

    I already asked jrap if it posible to find a replacement of the spellcheck.
    In the old software it looked like this:

    Every modern web browser has built-in spellcheck.
    Along with Firefox: Chrome, Safari, Opera and IE10+ all have spell check built in. I'm hesitant to install a forum plugin when it's not really necessary!
