    Please use this thread to let me know of any questions you have about the new Xenforo software.

    1. Some members may have to clear their cookies on their computers before the log in will be recognized by the new software.

    2. Upper right hand corner has the Login and Sign up links. Also, there are 3 icons. The man is the User Control Panel, the envelope is conversations (use to be called Private Messages) and the bell is where you will see alerts for new posts on threads that you watch and new "conversations".

    3. Using UPLOAD A FILE, is the easy way to upload an image directly from your computer or smartphone. Also copy from somewhere and directly pasting into the message box works.

    The forum is with a new owner but Buster Hymen will be back online soon and can possibly tell more. I'm part of the new support team. The plan is to keep on going much as you were before, but maybe a few s/w improvements etc.

    It is not on Tapatalk at this time. Do you have a mobile browser on your phone? Try that and type in the web address. It will be much better than Tapatalk. It's full functioning. If too narrow in portrait, it looks amazing in landscape mode.

    Good to know you found it. And all regular controls are now available instead of just some of them via an app.

    Is "Conversations" the same as 'private messages (PM),' only able to be seen by the person writing it, and the person receiving it? I hope so. I used PM to do business deals, and I don't want my personal behavior able to be seen by all, just the person to-whom I address it.

    Yes. A conversation is a Private Message. And only the people listed in that conversation can see it.
