    Sorry, don't know if it's already been mentioned, but I'm still trying to wade through all the new info and what not. When I click on the Knife maker's for sale forum, I get "not found" error message saying that it does not exist.

    Let it also be known that some links saved to the Favorites area, may not work. It appears that once the user logs in and starts navigating, everything appears normal. So far, so good!

    Every thread I click on, the text isn't horizontal it's vertical.
    One letter per line :eek: and the images are just partial. :confused:
    I've tried a few things but nothing seems to fix it.
    HELP !

    The Report Post icon is at the bottom of the post now. Colored differently but still an exclamation point in a triangle.

    Thanks again for the search function capabilities and allowance for the little guys.

    Spark...I think this is a good idea. Subforums IMO prevent some people from finding them. A good forum will have the main page that shows all the forums listed in a simple format without any hidden subforums. Good examples of this are 24hourcampfire, BPL and The Refuge.

    IIRC the request was the opposite - to hide subforums completely off the main category area.

    The Thread Display Option in the Busse for Sale forum doesn't seem to be working.
    I try to change it to Sort by Last Post and when I hit Show Thread, a "TheWeb Page Cannot be Found" page comes up.

    Took me 5 minutes to get here. I'm holding out hope that Blade Forums will get back to normal. Has been my favorite forum. But this sucks right now!
