    Is it just me, or has someone screwed the forum up?!

    Quotes no longer seem to work - unless you select them separately with another button, then you get quotes from several threads apparently no way to select the quote you want to use.

    No doubt if I bother to persevere with it, I'll find other things screwed up as well!!!

    Quote allows you to quote across the forum. Reply is what you want when responding to a single post...

    Ahh! - I have to click 2 buttons now to reply with quote instead of just 1.

    By the time the wrinkles are stretched out - it could cover quite a wide area!

    No you don't you just click reply on the message you are replying to and it includes the message as a quote. If you want to quote multiple messages you click "Quote" on each and then you will have a "Insert Quotes" button that you click to include the quotes. In the "Insert Quotes" you can even remove ones you decided not to "Quote"

    That's fine but the forums was using software from 2004 which had a lot of bugs so there for it was broke so he did fix it. :)

    It was broken. Remember the sporadic blank page bug when the thread title was longer than 20 characters?

    Or how some people kept getting logged off immediately after signing on?

    It is a huge job to switch over the software. jrap is doing as good of job as I have seen done with other sites that switched. The bugs will take time.

    I think the advantages far outweigh the little inconvenience we are now having. Xenforo is far superior for posting images and other attachments. I also like going to the first unread post.

    I am a little surprised that some people were taken by surprise. jrap has advertised the upcoming change for quite awhile.

    It looks like we also lost the little warning icon used to report a problem (i.e. violation of ToS) with a thread/post to the administrator...unless I just couldn't see it.

    It doesn't exist yet. It seems there are a lot of setup options that our fatigued admin is finding and setting to mimic our old software as best he can. He wants them reported and I have not heard that one was missing - nice work. Everyone has their favorites. "Edit" was missing earlier today. All getting fixed. I think he was up all night and passed out now.
