iGirl -- did the blue bar (drop down) change ? Because now there is no drop down for "new posts"

Yes it changed. I had to redo it because anyone using IE6 wasn't able to use the other one. It is A LOT of work to code the menu (it took several days) so I didn't want to add links just for the sake of adding links. If there is a link you genuinely use and find valuable, let me know and I'll put it in someplace on the menu. :icon_e_geek:

New posts rocks, I just liked the fact that I could use the drop down menu and find more "uncommon" options. I really liked it. I had hoped it could have stayed... but I also understand the need to assist everyone who comes to the site.

As usual, you are doing a great job.. :) :) :)

That's all I needed to know! :D I liked the extra links too. It was easy with the last version of the menu because it was all basically javascript. Since that didn't work right for everyone, now I'm modifying what's already in place, but it's all php and css and hooks... :pocc:...but it's getting easier...:icon_e_geek:

So what exactly did you like to see in the dropdowns?

Ouch.. now you are putting me on the spot -- I liked the four items you had under new posts, but reality is that you can find one of the links now under quick links, and I like the simplicity that you have created.

For certain the only thing I dont like right now is the double section (gray and blue bar) but I am hoping that in the future only one will exist.

There are so many things I think you have already improved on since the start, its so hard now to ask for more until I have gotten used to it completely and then say.. wait a minute.. I really wish "this" feature was here.

I will definitely keep my eyes open for a way to consolidate the 2 menus, I know there must be a way, but I have to make sure that any changes I make don't cause problems when I have to do upgrades. Basically I don't want to destroy the integrity of the code. :eusa_think:

I will add some queries to the New Posts link in the form of dropdowns, like Posts in last 24 hours, yada yada yada...

Let me know what else you'd like to see in the links. No pressure, just as you think of them. :D

Mind boggling... that is, how you do all this!

Well, you weren't the only one. :lol: There were 3 people who reported having problems, so I had to assume there were more who just hadn't notified me...yet.

I have a question that might be related to this conversation, is there currently a way to examine all posts made by any member.

This used to be a fairly easy option to find with the old format, but I have not been able to find it on the new box?

Yes. But it's not exactly intuitive, so I'm hoping lots of members read this and will know how to do this going forward. In fact, I'll go ahead and put an article in the How do I? section. I think the easiest way is to click the icon next to the member name in a post and select 'Find all posts by ****'.

Thank you...I thought I looked at that option, and only seen two choices on the member I wasnted to research.
