    No way would I ever read this sandwiched in the original page. You HAVE to have it as a stand-alone link or you will go nuts! LOL

    My only complaint is that once I've read all the threads I want, I go up and click Mark this forum read, but it doesn't.
    Even after refreshing, it still shows all of the ones I skipped as unread.

    It gets rid of the 2 sidebars of info about the new and old message boards and is much less busy. Try it you might like it.

    Maybe this will help. This information is taken from parts of another thread. This link does not contain the side borders and will keep you logged in...

    1. Try using this link instead:
    http://couplesjamaica.biz/mb/index.php

    2. After the new window comes up that displays the message board without the sidebars, close the original browser window that you used to click on the link (ie the one with the side bars).

    3.Use the log in feature found in the upper right hand corner of the browser window. Be sure to click on the remember me check box.

    4. Once you are logged in, add the page to your favorites,

    5.Use that Favorites entry whenever you want to access the Couples message boards.

    I agree with TommyWommy. This new format is not as easy to read. I hate having to enlarge my screen. As you can tell I barely post here anymore.
    Oh well it's progress.

    I still LOVE Couples and will keep reading the new MB but not as often as the old one.

    I really don't like this new format either. It's not easy on the eyes and I really don't want to spend much time here like I used to. The tip on getting rid of the sidebars was great. I really don't like have to scroll down to the bottom to read the newest posts to a thread. The old one wasn't broken...why did you guys fix it?

    I don't recall the old MB being so heavily moderated. If you post a reply at night it doesn't get approved till the next day. And I guess they didn't like my thread about people saving palapas for 2-3 hours at CSA because I don't see it, and the thread where the guy was asking what happened to it was removed too, correct me if I'm wrong. So, I guess it's just here for inane questions and not to tell people your actual experiences at Couples.

    I don't know... I wasn't crazy about the new format either, but with a little exploration and investigating... Hey it is what it is...

    jimpat1,
    Another BIG thanks from me too !! I have just been too busy to play around w/ the new board. Those sidebars & toppers were driving me CRAZY, taking up way too much viewing room. Thanks again !!!!!

    I too felt the MB was way too busy and it was driving me nuts that I had to move the bar in order to read everything because those sidebars were in the way---Now that I've heeded the advice of those more technically advanced, it's a much better fit. thanks

    Here is my problem with this new board. It feels corporate and impersonal. It might as well be an S board. The Couples feel is gone. The intimate quality of posts has declined and I miss the old dogs like TommyWommy and Crabracers who added such a great personal touch.

    Can't help you there.

    Richie is here almost daily...Tommy lurks.

    Standardization in software makes support and troubleshooting easy-peasy for the folks that keep our virtual home alive. The last format was a dinosaur and quite complex in the grand scheme of things.

    Of course, I have some bias...I work with many boards that use this software.

    JumpinJen - I agree with you. This message board feels cold and impersonal. I am trying to warm up to it but it is hard. Before, people would write longer more intimate thoughts and I liked that. Maybe with time this board will get better. I'm pulling for it!
