Change! It’s even getting to FR. Seriously, thanks for the updating.

Cool, now I won’t have to back a few pages to find the picture code.

Thanks

Any chance we’ll ever be able to search within article comments?

That would be a tremendous resource - although I’m sure it would nail the server.

Thanks again for all you do, John. Are you making changes to the font on the Forum page? If I may suggest the title needs to be larger than the comments section, as it’s very hard on the eyes when skimming through the page. Also, the “replies” is a tad small and hard to find. Could this be larger and/or in color?

I would kill for a different background color. The white is blinding.

Does anyone know a solution?

You can always use a CSS style sheet, such as a Firefox add-on provides. Sorry, I’m working on taxes, can’t help now.

Yes, but it's change you can believe in!

John,
I have my page configured like this:

Top
Block Region Weight Color Size
Latest Articles
Link Banner
Locale Message

When I click “more” on either the forum or beta page, I just get the “latest articles” list refreshed.; I don’t get the next 15 articles on the list of articles. Is this the way it is supposed to work?

Thanks for your continuing improvements!

You can use your regular search engine for that (at least with Google, Yahoo, and MSN).

Just precede your search terms with site:freerepublic

Good stuff - thanks.

Question, does:

Select: All | None
select all showing on the currently displayed page, or all my messages entirely? I'd like to delete my older messages, but I am afraid that if I go do one of the older pages of messages and Select All, then I will be selecting, then deleting All my messages, not just those listed on the page in front of me.

Earlier, John said the time displayed will be the time shown on your computer. If you have your computer set for Mountain time, it should be correct on FR.

Change is all well and good -- but what about HOPE?

How about being able to tag threads as favorites and have them show in that favorites tab as well?
