I do realise you are very busy with this change and sorting problems, but could you please see this in The Green Room
(72) New - Things that need to changed in the new software? | Tech Support Forum (techguy.org)
I do think it would be better if TA`s were shown as such when they post on the forums. It is good for the users of the forums to see that the person replying is a Trusted Advisor.
No rush but if the software allows such a change it would I am sure be for the better.

How To Save (Bookmark) Threads Or Posts

This is an excellent option when you want to save a thread to come back to later. At the bottom of the post, you will see Save. Click on it.

Once you click on Save, you can add any notes to remind yourself and then click to Save.

When you are ready to find the saved bookmarks later, from the navigation, near the upper right-hand corner, click on your avatar to open the drop-down menu and select Bookmarks.

That is outdated. We are still busy cleaning things up.

This is a Premium feature. The Admin/Mod Team, Trusted Advisors, Spam Fighters, and Malware Specialists have lifetime Premium Membership.

I posted the tutorial in the Premium forum.

Premium membership offers a Focused Reading Mode option to hide the right sidebar column. Follow the steps below.

Click on your avatar near the upper right corner of the site and select Account Settings.

On the Account Settings page, select Preferences from the left side navigation.

Scroll down to Focused Reading Mode. Add a checkmark and save your changes at the bottom.

We have strong thunderstorms moving through, so I am experiencing intermittent power outages.

I will be back this evening (or when the storms pass through) to answer more questions.

I got scared and sent an email. I could not log in.
I finally decided to look at the password. It was using one from February 2017!!! I have no idea where that one was dredged up from. I removed it an typed in my current password.

I think one of @DaveA's good points was glossed over in the thread he created in the Green Room. Namely, the ability to generate macros so we can duplicate oft-used text descriptors or advice. As an example, I used one often to direct users on how to use the system info executable. Talking of which: perhaps I may have missed this with my initial perusal of the new-look site, but I can't seem to find it now.

Is there a way to search for keywords only within the comments/posts in the thread you have open in your browser? This was a search option at the top of every thread's page in the old site.
