p.s. dobeadmin
My drag and drop photo feature does not work, nothing happens or it just hyperlinks, I am still having to upload to the site or use a third party....

Also, as I use the new format right now....random peoples text comes through as all red and hyperlinked
I've noticed the red hyperlink too.

Jeff M: Your avatar certainly fits what you and your team must be feeling with the upgrade. I was having trouble "thanking" posters, but that resolved when I switched to the classic view. I think that is a coincidence but not sure. Thanks to whoever posted about switching back to the "classic" view. Much easier to read. Once the bugs are worked out and the team has addressed what they are going to address, I'll check back with the new look. Change is difficult, so for now I'm happily back with the classic view.

Can't have enough horses and Dobermans!

Sam, going by the screenshot you attached, what you're seeing is the reputation points you're receiving as a result of people "thanking" your posts. It's a feature that's purely for entertainment purposes as it does not effect your permissions/access on the site.

The "thank" feature has been resolved. I just "thanked" your post using the new skin (as oppose to the classic view).

that photo was unrelated and attached to show my comment to two other uses about the banner

the red hyperlink text is for random posts by other users in forum threads

I can't even sign in and says I have no rights like posting, new threads etc...the test spot doesn't (to see if I'm human or a bot) doesn't even have a puzzle to answer, just a black screen. Trying sign in is impossible--refers me to "press black button" no black button. Says to sign in and put in password--no place to sign in and no password box.

I have finally given up and asked for my name and password to be sent to me but this isn't going to help if there is no place to enter them -- I've been a member for years and know my user name and password but can't enter them anywhere.

Don't know I can actually even send a post--but I'll try.

I had to delete PG Free app and reload to my iPhone and iPad. Has a different look and feel but works. I rarely use my laptop or PC for the forum, so the full site isn't too much of an issue for me. I also don't want to change my browser.

The "thanks" issue is still unresolved and I see many posts as red hyperlinks. I will also agree that a white background is really really uncomfortable for those of us that suffer from migraines or have astigmatism.

Still same issue with the Thanks button for me. Can we soften the white background? Also where is the sign in?

I am still getting this message when "thanking" some of the posts:

"vBulletin Message

does the banner look different to you (or anyone else) every time they get back to the site?

I have seen the puppies on one computer I've used but not on any of the other three (i'm not crazy lol, i have mine at home and a few I can use at work depending on what i'm doing). Same for the ears being cut off at the top, yes on some, no on others.....

I don't post often these days. More often than not I'm just reading. Having only accessed the site a couple of times via my phone, my initial reaction to the new site involves words I can't post. There have already been several occasions were I come to the forum, see the changes, and opt to go somewhere else instead of dealing with the new site.

ETA: Ah...the classic site...much better.

There should be an edit link in the bottom right of the post that should be there for a few hours or so. We can extend if needed.

So far only got kicked completely off the site one time today.

Was able to give a 'thanks' one time. Site seems to be very selective who it allows me to thank - or not.

Have you tried clearing your cache or doing an F5 refresh?

They have been making some updates on the back end which may have kicked out today.

Have tried clearing my caches, still takes me back with the message that I do not have access to thank anyone. This is getting frustrating
