  • A few problems with the new design

    1) Signatures have disappeared and I can't see where to create/edit them

    2) We used to be able to highlight text within a post and add a link right there. Now the link appears at the bottom of the post in two parts, the full link as intended plus its top level URL only

    3) I can't PM Doug about this because his inbox has been full for months (I just tested it again)

    The secret is to not login, go to the main page of the site and click forums and you will see a message at the top of the page where you can click on the site FAQ which not only contains all the original RetouchPRO information but information about creating signatures, uploading photos within posts and uploading attachments to replies. It looks like there are quite a few options - not sure if all of these have been enabled but I guess its just a bit of trial and error. You can then login and change things.... I have only just discovered this today - so have just tried to create my signature..... according to the FAQ you are supposed to get to user settings on the top right hand side of your profile … but I can't see that - I have however discovered the bold and italics buttons, those buttons are enabled when you click on the underlined A that is shown when you are posting.... still hunting for the user settings - maybe they have not been enabled?

      I've started support tickets on the first two items, I will report back with any news. #3 was my bad, it should be fixed now.

      Thanks for finding and reporting these bugs!

          Still working on the signatures, but got word back about partial quoting:

          The partial quoting that used to be available was made available by a custom modification I applied that is no longer supported by this new version. In fact, this version doesn't allow any modifications of any sort, so unless it becomes a new feature in the future it won't be returning. Sorry.

            Thanks, by "partial quoting" do you mean "highlighting text and hyperlinking it"? That's all I want, just like most other forums/blogs.

              Yes, unfortunately that is gone.

                That's odd, that is a basic function of the internet.

                      by OpalCat
                      I had a private message, but it wasn't a new message (it had been there before but I hadn't noticed it, apparently) and it took me forever to find how to read it! There was no link to the user cp on the front page, and so I had to go into a thread, click on "send a private message" and then...

                      where did it go
                      by Bob Walden
                      With all the great help available I am having a problem. I'm thinking there is a simple solution others are using. After reading an answer to a thread how are people marking them so as to return to them later. I realise there is an archive but how are you getting back to a subject w/o going though all...

                      Way out?
                      by gbdurfee
                      P.S. If I hit this post button by mistake and end up here instead of on a new or previous thread, how do I get out of here without posting something?

                      by Swampy
                      Maybe I'm doing something wrong, but when I log in to RTP and see my avatar and the notice that there are 33 unread messages, I click on that number and I only get a list of 10 or 15 threads. I understand that there may be several messages in a single thread that might get listed as unread, but I feel...
