Dittoing the thanks that justme gave, and I've also been giving references... except they're to fellow pianists in my area. ;\)

Thanks for posting those links and making such a great place for us outcast pianists to hang out! \:\)

I like the new blue-bar dividers on the Forum home page. Makes it much easier to navigate. (I rather wondered if we were challenging your patience and magnanimity a couple of weeks ago when the "Coffee Room" got demoted to a lower position on the list.

P.S. Where's the other half of "Smash Freak", the lopsided-eyed part?

Ah, Frank, you are now a god. Thank you for the spell check. The older I get the more I second guess things as I stare at them. Amazing what doesn't look right anymore that is and what does but isn't. Happy to see the new button.

Also, it's a great addition to to have the post to which one is replying appear now at the bottom of the reply composition page. Saves all that otherwise back and forth.

Regarding colors--is it possible to permit the page background to use the user's "system color" for background? (I do web pages commercially to some extent, but I'm not sure how to code this.)The advantage of that would be that the user would see on his/her local computer whatever he/she/it has chosen as easiest on the eyes with his/her/its given monitor. In my own case, that's a slightly tan, lightish yellow. Not nearly tennis-ball "optic" yellow, but in the remote neighborhood to get good visibility without the blinding contrast of black on white.
I did the color test in the other thread and still arrived at that as easiest on the eye after a bit of tinkering with many colors and shades.

The scrollable thread image on the reply page is a welcome addition, as is the smell checker, although I'm guessing it still will miss syntax errors. (that's not really true, folks, one of them got chipped that's all)

I concur with ChickGrand about the button colors though, they are a little busy and do make it a bit difficult to select the desired button "at a glance".

Well, now that I TRIED the spell checker it didn't work......just gave me a blank "done" page. Tried "select all" first, same result. Same thing when I just repositioned the cursor to the top of the page, or highlighted just a portion of the message.
Anybody else have this problem? Maybe it was just miffed about the "smell checker" comment?

Oh well it'll work out in the end, I'm sure.
Bob

I agree, the buttons are hard to see.
I'll have to see what I can do to come
up with something better (time to fire up PhotoShop).

Have to find out where the bug is in the spellchecker, working on it.

Other stuff to follow.
