Try this: go to your forums User CP, click on Edit Options, then scroll down to Thread Display Options. It sounds like your currently have a hybrid display option - if that's what's showing up in the drop-down box, try switching it to a linear option.

O.k. I think I fixed it, with your help Mel. It was showing Linear-oldest first. I changed it to Hybrid, then changed it back to linear oldest first, then saved the change. I think that did it. THANK YOU MEL.

how to save post locations

Silverhawk, the easiest way to save a post's location is:
  1. Go to the post you want to remember
  2. Click once on the number of the post (in the top right corner of the post)
  3. A new box opens with just that post in it
  4. Click once at the top of that page, and hit CTRL-C (hold down Control, tap the "C" key)
  5. Open something to save it in, your word processor, or just a text file (.txt)
  6. Click once in the open text file or word processor, then go CTRL-V (hold down Control key, tap the letter "V")
The result is a direct link to that page. Save your word processor file or text file and call it "goodposts.txt" or whatever you like.

The process sounds like a lot of work, but that's because I walked through it in great detail. In practise, it only take seconds to do, faster than you could write out the information on paper.

Plus, you can imbed that address of the post into another word, if you want to direct people to it. One of those click here things.

cheers,
Aage

Thank you for that tip Aage. I will have to try that one. The problem is fixed, the "tree" is gone. I must have hit something while rummageing around in my CP. Dummy me.

I don't see anything that looks like this. Is it at the beginning of a tread or at each post within that tread?

Is this an Internet Explorer issue?

It might be HowieE, it is amazing how web pages look different in IE vs. Firefox or Safari.. You would think they would look the same... Not sure why they don't...

I am running IE. I also admit to being a computer dimwit.
It was at the beginning of each page, and if you clicked on a particular post, that post was all you got, along with the "tree".
Now if I can figure how to run one of those other browsers so I can kill wavy guy, I will be a happy camper. Thank you everyone who offered help. AIR KARMA to ya.

Silverhawk,

It's really easy. Go to

Firefox web browser | Faster, more secure, & customizable

Follow the prompts and you'll be using a superior browser in no time flat.

Once you have Firefox installed go back and get the add on called Ad-Blocker. It's also easy to install.

Say goodbye to Mr Wavy

You may use Notepad to open and edit this file, but be sure that when you save it that it is not saved as HOSTS.txt, but rather as HOSTS (with no filename extension - it's a Unix thing). If it is saved as HOSTS.txt then rename it to HOSTS
You can keep IE and get rid of wavy guy. I duplicated this on the laptop and the laptop cooperated right away, (my desk top was just stubborn)

Start at my computer, go to the drive of the operating system, click on C? (or your drive) > click windows > click system 32>click drivers> click etc , Right click on hosts, click open, then click notepad in the open with box. Just copy and paste the line 127.0.0.1 ad.doubleclick.net to add as the bottom line and click save. He was gone.

My thanks again Crusty, your fix was greatly appreciated and much improved my demeanor today!

Now if only all the other stuff in window was this hard to fix

This is why I refuse to use IE.. Windows just doesn't make stuff easy. I've been using it since before 95 and have never been happy. Even built some of my own.

I use Vista on my Media PC but thats it. Only because the download programs and newsgroups don't all work with mac yet.

But to each his own, and everyone uses what is easiest for them, not for me or others.. and like wise...

As long as wavy guy is gone we are all happy

Wonder if the forums likes us getting rid of there adds...

O well, to bad

Wavy guy was hawking Kellog's Live Bright, brain health bars, the ad's link offered ways to keep minds exercised such as with puzzles. Guess the forum worked on the puzzle and solved it without Kellog Brain Bars.

Macs are great. I love them Apples. But my CS3 and Lightroom as well as a score of others is for windows and while I can change the platform, I've got too many machines and drives and software using windows right now and they don't play nice together, and cross platform stuff is spensive and somewhat dreary. Maybe a good project for someday.

Yeah, we have four computers in the house 2 macs and 2 pc's... The macs talk ok to the pc's but not the other way round. and I ran windows on my MacBook but I used it so little I took it of... MY XP machine that I use for office work, is a little more user friendly than the media PC that is running Vista... They just made changes to make them... I don't get it. And now they are working on the new OS. Can't wait to see that one.

When I got my laptop I got the media center OS and then a free disc for Vista but never installed it. I think the new OS for Windows is because a lot of people don't like Vista, I'm still running XP on all. DH got the Media Center for second tv in the AS but we never have time to watch it. It's hit the sheets and out like a light, lol. Nice monitor and wi-fi with light scribe disc writing and good for photo storage and back-ups and much faster than my old one. But now he's got the ITouch with wi-fi and that thing blows our minds. No need to carry the laptop to the cafe for e-mail and can download maps. The new ITunes interface with flip albums (like juke box) is soooo cool, not to mention the large self rotating orientaion and touch control. Wonder how the new touch screen monitors will be? Not for me though, my mouse is groddy enough with Dorittas as it is. But it sure would be sweet for playing music as guests flip through the album selections with the album art.
