What's New?


  • Spell Checker[/b]
    Check your spelling before you post.
  • Email Notification of Reply[/b]
    If you reply to a post, and then would like to know if someone else replies, check "Email Notification" under Options. To turn it back off, just edit your reply anytime and uncheck the "Email Notification" box. Note: It only effects the topic you were in when you turned it on, you won't get notifications from any others unless you reply to them (and turn it on).
  • Forum Stats[/b]
    At the bottom of the Forum Summary page (main page)... interesting stats.
  • Games[/b]
    Ok, most of you weren't interested, but some of them are actually fun. Under "Just For Fun" category, Games.
  • New Posts[/b]
    In the new right side bar. New Posts shows the latest posts.
  • Categories[/b]
    The forums are now broken down into categories. You can navigate back to the posts list for the category you are in by using the "breadcrumbs" at the top of the page, or the "Categories" list in the right side bar.
  • Other Good Stuff[/b]
    Located in the right side bar, some other areas of Piano World you might find interesting. And yes, some advertising for companies we are affiliated with (helps support Piano World and forums).
  • Right Side Bar[/b]
    I know some of you are less than thrilled with the right side bar. If you don't like it, ignore it. There is actually some good info in it though.
  • Last Posts[/b]
    When you first enter a "category" there is a list of recent posts. The far right column of the list shows the last post for any given topic.
    Clicking on the persons name takes you directly to the last post inside the topic.
  • Recent Visitors[/b]
    Near the top of the page on the main landing page, or inside a category is the "Recent Visitors" link. Clicking this tells you who was here recently and lists the popular topics for the category.



I think that about does it for now.

If you have any complaints about any of the
new features, please feel free to take them
up with our Complaint Department!

I just noticed that I can't delete my own posts. Was there a reason for disabling that?
