How do we even get to the Photo gallery from here?
Unfortunately it no longers with this version. If you have a picture there you need me to retrieve give me a description and the year you uploaded it.

So, the way I understand it (I'm slow) we go to postimage.org and go from there?
There is no 'Add a photo' that we click on like we used to do?
Ok I think I figured it out....I hope...
Thanks.
There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn't true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.

Any chance of Youtube, etc... being able to embed like before?

Not unless they come up with a modification. :(

I have an occasional glitch since the update and want to see if anyone else has something similar. This has only happened in Political Bull and is happening with Windows 7/Firefox.

I'm having trouble getting to the first unread post in some threads in PB, but not all threads. If I try to go to the first unread post in those threads, I just get a blank page. If I try to go back to Political Bull using any of the links for Political Bull, I can't get anything but a blank page - those links won't take me back. It's almost as if I'm locked out of getting anywhere.

However, if I use my browser's back button immediately after getting the first blank page, I can get back to the index page for PB. I can then go to the last post in the thread using the last post link - that's the only way I can view those threads. Sometimes it happens the opposite - if I try to go to the last post first, it just brings up a blank page, but I can back up and go to the thread the other way.

When this happens, the threads that I have problems with aren't marking as read, and I can never get back into PB until I mark everything as read. Even after reading the threads, they're still not marking as read. I've cleared cache and all of the standard tricks, but still having trouble. It's not something that I can't work around once I figured out how to do it, just frustrating.

Is this happening to anybody else? If it does, just keep in mind that marking posts as read will let you get back in, or it does for me.

Once you mark all posts as read, you can get to the threads, just have to scroll to the posts that you haven't seen. Be sure to use your back button the first time it happens. If you don't use it the first time it happens, you'll have to go to the main index page using the Bull Session link at the bottom to mark everything as read.

I know that sounds confusing unless it's happening to you, but if it is, you'll understand exactly the problem that I'm having. Clearly, staying the hell out of PB is one of the healthier options. LOL
Mine won’t go to pb either. White screen

Have you clicked/tapped 'Mark forums read' in the upper right of the index page? That lets me get back to it.

At one point, I thought the dog was smarter than the human. Sometimes you gotta let the cow see where
to go. The dog was doing that. Ok, JMHO. :D
Wonderful dog!!!
