    Hey Guys, I thought exactly the same, "how hard could it be?" right?

    Well, it turns out that for this version of vBulletin, it is a LOT harder than it should be. I've requested this tweak several times and our chief code monkey says that it is very difficult. You wouldn't think so, but it is.

    But we haven't given up on this! We are still trying to figure out a way to code this back in.

    (I'm referring to the request of having the forum nav dropdown start with the forum you are currently viewing)

    I will check to see if that is just a setting change or a template change. If it's easy, for sure we'll do.

    Can't be that hard to code. I am a member at several other forums with the same software, they have it all set up correctly.

    Are they using the same version? 4.2.0? Can you give me a link to those forums?

    Not sure what version they are running. Take a look at the quick navigation. It is labeled "Forum Jump". Has a simple go button.

    So how do i post pictures using my iPad? I've dowloaded them but to post it wants me to "drag & drop" into the load attachment area. Can't do that on an iPad!!!!! Does EVERYTHING with this new upgrade have to be difficult?!

    Even Garmin, https://forums.garmin.com/forum.php, and they are known for great hardware and bad software. Even THEY can get it right, or better; better colors, better layout, and far fewer users than MTBR.

    Yeah, I'm telling you. It really makes a difference on the eyes, not having to look at a screen all the time that is 95% white.

    I'm probably missing it, but where is the high contrast mode on those Garmin forums?
    (or is it for registered users only?)

    No high contrast, but they use muted colors that do not strain the eyes. Not so much bright white, muted blue / gray. And the blue for main headers does not try to pull the eyeballs out of my head to read the white text in it like the ones here do. Yes, I'm old with bad eyes, but no other forum affects me like this one does.

    I spend little time here now, just read most of the posts via subscription notifications in Gmail, then click the link to open MTBR and close it again so I'll get the next post notice; I can even get picture links from notifications in Gmail. I get nightly forum updates via email, browse those, and if anything interests me, I click it, subscribe, and leave. I just do not browse the site any longer - makes my eyes and head hurt.

    Afraid not! It highlights the current forum but it does nothing when clicked. You have to go back or click another forum.
    The trouble with having an open mind is that people will insist on trying to put things in it.

    I don't know if this is an issue with the new mtbr format or not - but in the last few days members Avatars and Signatures only occasionally show up (like right now I can only see Ronnies, can't see Greggs or MiniTrails - I had to look in the Hybrid view up top to see who's posted). Also, right above the restored dropdown menu (thanks!) the 'pages' thingy doesn't always show up - sometimes it returns if I hit 'refresh'.
    I did recently uninstall Explorer 10 and retro'd back to Explorer 9 (Ex 10 was only on there for 3 - 4 days before I pulled the plug) so I'm not sure if that was the cause of the issues or not. Haven't tried Chrome yet, but will check shortly.

    edit; the Avitar's show up on Chrome just fine, the issue with the 'pages' thing is still there though.
    Chrome is way faster though!!

    I didn't notice this as much being a problem for me but what I do notice is now I can actually scroll down through the forums with my I-pad and pick what I want. Before it sort of had a mind of its own and made it hard to get to the forum you wanted. Thanks for fixing that!

    Definitely doesn't work for me. While on this thread I click on "Site Feedback/Issues", The menu pops up and "Site Feedback/Issues" is highlighted. When I click on it, it closes the menu and stays on this thread.

    If I click on any other sub-forum other than the one I'm on it will go there.

    Why do some threads have format with vertical and horizontal scroll bars? It seems especially odd when there is barely any text in a post.

    Also, reply boxes are almost infintely wide. I have changed the format back and forth to and from Fixed. It is now Fixed.

    Here are the scroll bars.

    That's not how it used to work at all. It was a live link. It would take you back to the thread listings if you were in a thread.

    Good job on the quick navigation, thank you. Now please bring back the thing that shows everyone's rep. Bad move on your part to hide it.

    Hey Gregg, Almost every forum I choose the browser stalls, with the arrow just spinning. I have to press the "back arrow" to get it to load. I use Windows 7 with Explorer 9.0.8. Any ideas?
