Holy moley, Smirnoff!! I thought my sleepy ol" eyes were playing tricks on me when I logged in this morning!! It's so bright now compared to the old gray/black format -- looks good.

There is a dark skin available, just go to the ‘user control panel’ -> ‘Board preferences’ -> ‘My board style’ and choose ‘industrial’…

Smirnoff :P

Nah ... I checked out the other ones and I kinda like this white one with blue trim. Change is good, right?

Thanks for all your hard work you and the other Mods do on this board, Smirnoff. We appreciate it.

Damn it is because, I hit the button ‘Resynchronise post counts’ so all post before the ‘hack’ is not counted, can you live with this, or should I try to restore the original post count ?

Smirnoff :P

I thought I had done something last night to my computer! Cool look. I'll have time to check everything out today, since I'm home with a sick little girl.
Great work, Smirnoff!

Looks great, now how about some tunes to go along with it? Is there anyway we can have some music playing on here in rotation from the bootlegs or Tribute?

That's another cool thing about this version. Admins can set the size of off site avatar AND sigs, so if they are too big, they won't be allowed to upload. 8)
That takes a pain out of my ass. :P

Firefox browser will not let me logon for more than 2 seconds. Keeps kicking me out. Login works fine using Internet Explorer.

I was having the same problem, even after "Clear Private Data" in Tools. The way to fix this, is go to "Tools", then "Options", then go to the "Privacy" tab and finally "Show Cookies". Select "Remove All Cookies". Once they are cleared, you should be good to go. The existing cookie is referencing the old site I think, so it has to be removed.

You know, it worked fine for me yesterday, and now today it's not keeping me logged in. I had to go to my
laptop to be logged in. Still trying to figure out the iMac.

I am using Microsoft Internet Explorer right now. When Firefox was used as browser it did not stay logged in for more than a few seconds (like earlier posters have typed). Went into remove cookies in Firefox and removed one cookie from TK. Attempted to log in with cookie removed and got the same problem of not being able to stay logged in. Are there any other cookies to remove besides the one cookie that is shown in the attached image? If we have to remove ALL of the cookies, this may create problems for other sites. A little humor is required: Everytime I get a new guitar it is so hard to tune it... Another problem. All of the bold, image attachment, url buttons are gone. I will try to attatch screen capture of TK cookie.
Attachment:
File comment: 27Feb2008 this is a screen capture from Firefox showing cookie removed.

I cleared all cookies, but I just recleared them and opened rr.tk first, and I got these cookies:

I'd suspect you'd need to remove all three.

I am resistant to change! Ah! Where is my old board setup?

Although I hate change, I thank you moderators for continually trying to make this a great board. Thanks.

Thanks for the Firefox tips, haven't tried it yet. For some reason Firefox is working now.
