Nice feature but would like to be able to collapse or turn off the display of these two new items as they take up a full screen and you have to scroll by them on every single screen now to get to the actual content.  Even posting a message is preceded by these two new display items.
Just my $0.02  ;)
Thanks.

Added Observation: Also in the interest of screen real estate, you might want to consider placing all the social media buttons in a single line at the bottom of the messages.  Kind of a "Social Networking Bar" if you will.  Right now they are also taking up a lot of space in their current arrangement.

OK.  So that's $0.04 now.

Thanks again for all you work on the site!

I agree.  The "Share This" mod was taking up a lot of space.  I switched to a different FB/Twitter mod and Google +1 mod.

I switched back to EzPortal.  I think it has a cleaner look than TinyPortal.  The portal is mainly for the home page and future stuff.  I will try to minimize the changes to the forum itself.

Something seems to have changed since this AM.  How do I see the list of forums grouped by category?  Used to get it when I clicked on 285 Foodies breadcrumb.  Now I just get the recent posts.  Help??

Same here - before there was a "forums" tab to see all of the categories.  I liked it better that way.

Looks like something is covered by the Home tab - could be it.

I did too, I can't say too much, I've been off "playing" with my two grand daughters for four days while Brian has been racking his brain trying to figure out how we all like it and how it works best. 

I too like to see all of the forums when I hit "Home"...  rather than what I am seeing now...

....
Finding offense where none is intended is a form of selfishness.

When facts change, I change my mind.  What do you do?

It's a poor craftsman that blames his tools.

Nope.

If you see a gap between the Home and the Help buttons, put your selector on the stub between them and click - that's the Forum button. Looks like its either been hidden or a formatting error.

Sorry folks, I'm not sure what happened but it appears that EzPortal got corrupted at some point today.  Please let me know if you are still experiencing issues.

Thanks,

I updated some old files this morning.  Perhaps that had some lingering effects?  That's my best guess.  I have uninstalled/reinstalled all if not most of the mods on the board.  Please post to this thread if you see any more anomalies.

Thanks,

The default setting seems to be displaying the last post at the top of the thread, and everything after that in reverse chronological order. It's taken me all weekend to figure out that I haven't lost my mind.
