    There is no spoiler button here.

    If you use [ & ] where I use ( & ) you can manually put things in spoilers.

    (Spoiler) type your secret (/spoiler)

    If you quote my post you will see it, if my instructions are not clear.

    I'm struggling with this new board, I can't find my visitor messages, my avatar disappeared and it just took me 10 mins to figure out how to start a conversation with GNTL :(

    I had a lot of questions but I seem to be answering most of them myself by just taking a little time to poke around and see what happens and everyone is happy to help if I can't figure something out on my own. I am really finding this board to be much easier and user friendly than the old one! Thank you everyone who had a part in it. Love it!

    Really, really like the new feature to show who is online or off line. Thankee, Jordan.

    I stumbled upon a button I didn't realize was there...where it lists who is on-line, you can click on that line members online now. But I have insufficient privileges to look at who's on-line I'm told. Heh! Don't ya hate when that happens? You must be this tall to ride. So, who can view who is on-line now? Not that it matters a whole lot...although that was a feature before the most recent incarnation of the board, a feature any member could look-see at who was on-line, where they were at. Birthday calendar came and went. We no longer have the other threads like this option.

    Different software, different options that came with the package. Individual members can select whether or not they want to have their information displayed in the Privacy options. The Birthday calendar was up for a while on this one--Jordan would have to answer that one as to why it isn't now.

    I often wonder whether it says I'm online when my computer is password locked or when I'm looking at another window, because I usually leave the SKMB open all day in its own window.

    I have at least 4 devices I use to log on. If I have forgotten to log out on one computer and just closed out my browser window, I still have to log in on my other devices but then when I come back to the one I'd forgotten to log out on, it says I'm still logged in. One recognized me as being logged in but another didn't. Which is a long way of saying I don't know. :smile: Joooorrrdaaaann??

    Wow, I didn't even think about my smartphone...I always have at least one browser open with the SKMB on that!

    I always log out each and every time I leave... couldn't you just see it? One of my [brats] teenagers sitting down and happily going about giving out infractions, banning people, messaging all the ladies.... :glare: It's better to be safe in this house!

    :laugh: No I'm being serious, for example it's the school holidays right now which is why I have extra time on my hands (no too-ing and fro-ing to school etc) and right now, one of them (the little one) is having me answer my phone and hold a conversation with him on his play phone... and he is proficient with the computer, yar... if I get up and walk away from this thing, he's likely to take over. :biggrin2:

    Even when you're logged in, if you're inactive for 15 minutes or so, you're not longer listed as online.

    Can someone tell me how long it will be before I can see the list of people who are currently on line....

    I think you just click on forum (or maybe it is on 'members') - you should be able to see some icons of who is on line at the moment :umm:

    Clicking on Forms and looking to the right of the page should show a box Members OnLine.

    There are two ways to see members who are online. Either by the tab on their avatar within threads or on the homepage of the board. Screen Shot 2015-03-22 at 8.29.26 PM.png Screen Shot 2015-03-22 at 8.29.52 PM.png
