Jean, there are advertising pics in the picture gallery this morning. Apparently we have a brand new forum member who likes to advertise with spam.

Yes I know the name I've worked on the posts but I have no idea what to do with a picture gallery. I have alerted Al about it.

At the top can you find the place to click for Quilt Tutorials? It's right next to it with a down arrow key so you can select what type of gallery you want to view.

I have a blank space between the tutorials and search box, but when I moved my mouse over that space the pointer showed up and when I clicked that drop down box showed up. My gallery button is invisible :icon_eek:. Thanks for the help.

You're welcome. I wonder why it's invisible.

Maybe her screen is too narrow to display them all?

I have to wonder about the intelligence level of these spammers. Do they REALLY think people are going to buy their products after they've ticked them off by spamming?

I'm on a 17" laptop. There is about an inch blank space between the tutes and search. It must be the gremlins. At least now I know it's there, so the gremlins can release it now.

On IE my gallery button was gone too but when I clicked just to the left of the "search the forum" box it responded with the correct options for the gallery. I know I am using an old version of IE though and when i use Firefox the gallery box is there. Weird but I noticed it today too.

A mind works in less than perfect ways... Being exposed to a brand will make us more likely to chose that brand later - even if the exposure was a negative one. We are badly programmed that way. ;)
