Nice new look forum!

But the "SEARCH" function is not working well as before! How does the search work?

It is working now! From now on, people who have concerns with their Freestyles can search easily in this forum for solutions!

It is taking alot of getting used to ... I feel like I just came home from vacation and someone remodeled my home without my knowledge. Guess I will eventually get used to it. Why still no means to report bad posts (ie. spammers, etc.)? Most boards have that feature. Looks like my signature and pic is gone as well.

My signature and my profile are still current ... but it looks like the signature feature no longer works. Looks like the QUOTE FEATURE ^^^^ isn't working properly either.

BlueStyleLTD, regarding the quote problem. Be sure the checkbox "Disable BBCode" is left unchecked when posting. The quote feature uses BBCode, so if it's disabled it will look like your post.

Also, regarding the signature. I see a sig in your profile. Check your "User Control Panel" for the sig settings. Again, when you're posting be sure to check the "Attach a signature" checkbox.

That is very odd. I have no explanations for the old/missing pictures. The missing posts is a doozey (sp?). I'll see what I can find out. It says you have one post even though you've already made at least 3 posts since the upgrade.

Yes, you can report bad posts. Each post has a little exclamation mark icon at the bottom right corner. Yeah, I know it's not in the most obvious spot!

This is what it looks like: Image <---- Click it to report a post.

Try posting again. I changed your post count from 1 to 2. I'm hoping it will increment automatically now... we'll see.

I'm confused.

You have 168 posts at FordTaurus.net: http://www.fordtaurus.net/forums/member ... file&u=185 Is there any chance that's what you're thinking of?

You also have another username here, Lansing. With that account you have 7 posts. That account is active: http://www.myfordfreestyle.com/forums/m ... ile&u=1616

Let me know if you need help getting into your Lansing account.
