Click on your user name in the upper right of the screen. Select "Preferences" and adjust your settings as desired.
The emails are about logging in. I do not see an option for this in the preferences.

While the new system's attachment system is more robust with how it uploads/displays. It's also limited on what it can do, so unfortunately it's geared towards users posting up new images/attachments rather than reposting them. I know there's a add on for 1.5, but I'm not sure about 2.1 to address this. I will try to get that added on. (And thanks for understanding that it's best to reuse the already attached image)
Does that mean all our archived pictures and documents are gone ?

Drew: what about the "Merge Threads" and "Move Posts" options we Mods used to have?

I would have moved this one over here - if I knew how (?)
G, At the bottom left of the posts, there is a square box next to the word report. Click in it and a popup comes up to moderate.

Yeah but that doesn't help me much if I wanted to merge two threads (?) At least in my case it just selects the whole post and then gives me these choices:

Now, at the top right of each thread, next to "WATCH", those three dots bring up some more options, but still not what I wanted...

I do not know...

I'm still confused about most of the changes.

I can't figure out , when on the home page what the difference is with the new posts, what's new, and the new posts (with lightning bolt) is.

What is a profile post?

I can't even find this thread after I post in it. (edited)

Lots of learning/figuring out to go.

Still happening, I forwarded the email to your gmail acct.
Your profile was hung in a authentication loop. I had removed that from the group, but you had one pending so it kept on trying to do that. If anyone else is having that issue please let me know.

No, your attachements are still on the threads they were posted on. The tool to view them all at once is the only part missing. I'm still looking for a happy medium of the great attachment manager xF has and something that won't break/alter that along with giving a "see everything I've posted in the past functionality.

New posts - unread posts
What's new - recently posted including things you've read
Bolt - Just another shortcut to the same thing outside the menu.

Profile post - basically posts/threads for our own page. I'm probably going to disable this since people seem to think it's a PM feature and posting private information.
