Ok, how do we change our password for our account?

How do we change the size of the text (reading others post, not creating a post)?

How do we change our tag line or any other account settings?

Thanks

Not sure about the text sizing, but in the upper right, your user name, use the arrow pulldown, and select "My Settings"

Thanks zman.

What have I done? Now I have all kinds of stuff below my profile picture. Dang, even displays the number of warning points. No one else has that. Dang I must be a real bad one to have that feature. And all of that other stuff. Oh well, I suppose I will have the largest post window for one liners. :P

That stuff under your profile picture is seen only by you and the forum administrators. Until we can get it to not show up in posts, they fields have been changes so they are no longer required. If you wish to remove them for now, you can go back to your settings and delete the contents of the fields.

What shows up under avitar just number of posts and location or other stuff too?

I see your number of posts and location, nothing else. Others have said all the stuff you see is only seen by you and the admins.

You can always do the old hold the CTRL button and scroll the mouse wheel or CTRL and the + key to make the text larger.

Okay, so old forum showed posts newest to oldest. This one shows oldest to newest. Is there any way to reverse the posts so the newest is listed first. Once these suckers get really going, don't want to have to scroll thru 25 pages to find the newest parts of the thread.

In the old forum it was a user preference setting. (If memory serves.) In this version, so far, I'm only find an option that would affect the entire user base.

Searching ...

That must have been a setting on the old forums, as mine went oldest->newest there too. But I like the idea. I didn't see any such setting here, but +1 on the request if it's possible.

There is no spell check option built into the IP.Board software. Why? Since many (if not all) modern browsers have spell check built in, they decided not to put it in the software.

Is your browsers spell check not showing up?

Here's a fix which worked for me, and might work for you if you have the same issue. (These instructions specific to Firefox.)

Start by opening any forum, and either "Start A New Topic" or "Reply to an Existing Topic" as if you wished to actually post.

Type any word in the body of your message... preferably a misspelled word. Posted Image

RIGHT CLICK on that word, and from the popup menu select the "Languages >" flyout at the bottom.

Select the language you wish to use - probably English.

Confirm your selection by right clicking on a word again, going to the Language menu, and verify that there is now a bullet/dot next to the language you selected. A bullet/dot means that dictionary language is selected.

There is no spellcheck module built in to the IP.Board software. That is why you don't see one.

What web browser do you use? (And what version?) I'll try and track down why the built-in spell checker for your browser isn't working.

If you go to the right hand corner and press that bubble symbol you can view who is olnine and even the topics they are viewing. The topic thing is a little creepy though.

I use IE8. I guess I just got use to the old Forum where I could check the spelling.

Well, this won't make you feel any better, then. Some of the other modern forum/message board solutions don't have spell check built into them either.

Sadly, neither does IE8.

You might try one of the 3rd party spell checking add-on's. (Or consider a different browser when viewing the LOR Forums.)

I'm actually surpriesed IE8 doesn't have a spellchecker built in. It's pretty standard.

I'm usually one who rolls my eyes when fanboys talk about how crappy IE is and that I should be using Netscape (scratch that) Opera (scratch that) Firefox (scratch that) Chrome or whatever the latest fad browser of the day is. But it's pretty ridiculous they aren't keeping up with something as basic as spell check.

When I read a topic and then go back, it always goes to the top of the section instead of where the thread was. As I go back in topics it goes back to the top of the forum. Am I missing something?
