    Something new and GOOD about the new forum. Enhanced security

    I discovered a neat feature just a little while ago, while trying to figure out how to make the pages not so "white." I also remember seeing someone mention that you can now see some pictures that you couldn't see before unless you were a group member, pretty sure this will take care of that.

    If you would like to tighten up who can see your posts, personal information, pictures, etc. you need to make a simple change in your profile. If yu click on your name in the upper right hand corner of the page, it will take you to your profile page. Then click on EDIT SETTINGS, and the PRIVACY tab.



    If this image upload worked (It's all new too and sort of strange) you will see that as a default all setting are set to everyone. I changed mine to Members, which means people that are registered on the board. That way a person must be a member and signed in to see any and all info that yu set that way. Make sure and hit Save Changes when you get it set how you want.

    Karen, I don't have a "Privacy" tab in my user settings. Only Profile, Account, and Notification tabs.

        After going to your "Edit Setting", then you need click on the "Account" tab..... then scroll down a little way for the Privacy options

          Well shoot. Mine might be different because I am a moderator, but not sure. You seem to have found it so others should have it as well, regular members should not have different options

                  Well, if I am the only one that has that option as a moderator, that sort of bites. I was thinking that we would be able to lock the forum down more from outside eyes, especially since so many people end up posting addresses and personal information in places.

                  I did discover something else new (to me anyway) that makes the new layout look more like the old layout. I was going in to check See Signatures and decided to check Posts as well (User Setting/Account). With Posts checked, this is how my home page looks now.

                    Karen I just tried to change my email address (it's an old Yahoo address I never use any more......I know everyone is having issues.
                    BTW.....if you need another moderator, I wouldn't mind helping out. Just let me know.

                      Email can't be changed by you since it is what you used to register with the forum. That would be an administrative change. There are other mods on the forum besides me. That too is an administrative decision.
