    Larry, I have no doubt that they had to do something. I don't even want to try to understand what. I'm sure that it has to do with the HUGE size of the whole TBN thing. What has annoyed me the most is with these hi tech things, I thought that stuff was suppose to get better, easier and all that. I know that there are always bugs that have to get worked out, but this time around I think that they might have over stepped their capabilities and we all have to just muddle through it if we want to stay around. I like TBN, I like it enough that I created a job so that I am able to do the TBN thing as part of my job. But just because I am still here is not an indication that I like how the redone site works.

    Internet vandals are constantly finding new ways to compromise forum databases (i.e., SQL injection etc.)...sometimes it's an easy fix to plug a hole but other times they effect the interface...When this occurs it is more important to secure the database than it is to shakedown all the possible side effects before they release the upgrade...

    1. A modern pop-up photo gallery viewer like other forums using VBulletin software are using. If the pop-up photo viewer supports captions, so much the better.
    The current TBN method of clicking on a photo to enlarge it, clicking the "back button" to get to the next photo and repeating the process is clunky at best. Add in the added frustration if the "back button" doesn't return you to the post in question, you have to scroll through the thread again to get back to the pictures.
    I am very much against the photo popup as I like to middle click on pictures so that I can see all of them in separate tabs (dont have to wait for each picture to load that way when scrolling through a batch of pictures). If added, I would want a way to turn it off (unless I can still open the picture in a new tab by middle clicking on it)...

I don't have this problem on other VBulletin powered sites using newer versions.
    I wonder if that is related to the autosave module?

    Never seen that in Firefox or Chrome. Try going to your start menu and opening IE using the shortcut for "Internet Explorer (No Add-ons)" and see if that still happens.

    I have seen that from time to time, but generally it is when I have left Firefox open for a week and it needs to restart. If it happens to me on TBN, I have the same problem on all sites.

    You might try downloading Firefox and/or Chrome to see if the problem persists with them.

    But, for some reason it doesn't work with tractorbynet.com.

    On opening the pictures, you can also middle click on a picture or link most modern browsers and it will open the picture or link in a new tab.

    DUH, why didn't I think of that as a workaround for the time being.

    You just can't think of everything yourself! Otherwise there would be no point in having TBN!

    I would like a Thank You feature. It lets people thank a person for a great post with out having to post. If you look at bushcraftusa.com their forum lets you thank people with a simple button click. Its a nice feature.

    A Thanks button and a similar Like button would be handy. A couple of other forums I belong to have them and they are helpful for the reasons you mention. Good point DT86!

    Yeah -- On another forum I visit that is nothing related to tractors has a like link or a button you would say. You would get a notification flash of all like you gotten and you can go see which one its for. In yours stats shows the like you given and received. It would be handy to show support of statements of tbn'ers when I have nothing to say or its redundant to comment.
