It's like Medicare; everytime you think you've got the HICFA billing form problems ironed out, they change the form with a new set of unknown rules to be mastered before they will pay you.
But lately I'm sure I died and because Hell was full, they sent me to Zork.
Cheers!

Whew! I thought I was going to have to replace my monitor, everything started to look different. LOL

All kidding aside: Thanks for the detailed explanation!

Are these going to be made available for general reply posting?

The beauty of FR has always been an interface common to all. But, if favored style sheets become common, seems to me like that will make it easier to radically alter the look and feel of the place. I can see it now, "Get your style sheets here - one special made to suit your personality."

I really do hope that I am dead wrong... 8^)

All I wanna know is if my "win" on the Trash This Thread thread had any effect on the final outcome.

Questions?

I suppose not as I haven't a clue what you are talking about.

"As a side-effect and benefit, it closes open tags."

THAT is the greatest and most welcome news of all, John.

But.. just think - we don't HAVE to close anything now. I can just see people doing that as a general rule here, and then wondering what happened when they try the same thing on one of their own webpages when the habit is well entrenched .. LOL.

The blockquote thing sucks. What was the problem with "rouge" quotes anyhow?

Although not a HTML question, I used to search for articles using source:"*" and author:"*". Now when I do that I get No posts found in 0.184 seconds.

Is this search feature no longer available?

I use a web access tool to do a partial view source to copy articles into the post article block. I'm getting an error code most of the time when I hit the post article button.

Is it possible that these recent changes are associated with this problem?

Can you put a short blurb on the "post" page? I spent 10 minutes trying to figure out why I couldn't close the < BLOCKQUOTE > thingie.

I haven't the foggiest idea what any of this means, but good job. Thanks!
(That was a test.)

Very cool. Me like.

Can you publish a list of forbidden tags for us? Any chance you'll ever let <IFRAME>'s come back? There are some threads that really could benefit from it.

Can we use all tags in our custom style sheets or only the ones you've listed? Can you tell us more about <p class=thisclass> tags? When we upload a style sheet, does it become our default style sheet? It looks like you're planning to let us use other people's style sheets too. Are you going to give us a list of them to choose from? Are we going to be able to select a default style sheet when we post a thread?

Gee, I've got too many questions. I'll just wait until you tell us more. This is all very cool, John Rob. Nice work.

John,

I've already gotten used to the new settings....and one thing is standing out. The hyperlinks at the end of each post are starting to stand out like a sore thumb.

I would think the most important part of any thread is the articles and the replies, and thus the last line, the 'reply', 'private reply', etc. are probably the least important.

Would you consider making the font smaller for those? Or perhaps a lighter color? THey "seem" to "stand out" right now.

Personal style sheets? I shall try it out. No other forum in the universe offers this. Until I do, I thank you for ditching bookman font. Please leave at default.

I like Tahoma and everything else bugs me. I set my browser fonts to tahoma font.
