I know that I'm a dumb a##, but how do I access the user control panel?
Driving Fast...........
What does it take to make a fast car go faster?
Anyone with a strong right foot can do it. Most likely, in the instant before the car crashes, it will be going quite fast. There is more to driving than FAST. Getting around a course QUICKLY requires talent. It means pushing a car to its very limit—and sometimes beyond —while avoiding the crash, the spin, the bobble that nixes the entire effort. This is ART.(unknown author )

Is there some way of making the "View New Content", display a longer list of threads like the old "New Posts"?

Go to your user control panel find:

Search Settings
  • View New Content Method
Change to Show me all content that I have not read.

Is there a new way to upload files? I've tried both the simple and advanced for attached files to post pics and it always says upload failed. Tried multiple resolutions way below ones that use to work on here. It also says I've used 12.8MB of 500K global????

Can you tell me exactly what the error message says?

I like the IPB software. Been looking at it for a while. I think you made a great choice. Looking good!

I gotta say, the colors on the forums today look MUCH better than the pink/red of yesterday. The blue/green makes things a little easier to see. Overall, the change is good so far.

I just upgraded the forum on my website to this latest version of Invision, as well. I have been running Invision for almost 6 years now and I've always liked it.

This default skin blasted me in the eyes like an interrogation lamp, though. The very first thing I did after installing was go find one of the many free skins available to tone all this white down a bit.

I've now modified mine out to where it looks pretty slick. Not perfect, by any means, but easier to look at.

Here's just one link with free skins:
http://skins.invisio...index.php/c/325

There's plenty more out there, and its not at all difficult to install these.

The Invision Power forum is an excellent resource of IPB help, right on their own website. There's also Invisionize and some others for modding/skinning/etc...

I made a logo to match the current theme. Did it quickly but it should match ok. Maybe the text should be in white?

It is not recommended to confirm proper installation by driving into walls or other barriers as this could cause personal injury or damage to the vehicle.

I agree.

Slamming a car to the ground and putting stupid wheels on it is like spandex on Rosie O'Donnell. You go ahead and get all excited about that spandex if that floats your boat. All I see are cankles.

I just found a good feature for those of us that were having trouble viewing our subscribed threads.
When in "Manage Topics", down the bottom is a drop down box which lets you select how old activity you want to display. For us that use it everyday you can put 1 day.
WOOHOO.

OK, I may be 'tarded, but I can't figure out how to get the forum software to put me at the top when I open a thread. It invariably puts me part-way down the page, whether I've opened the thread before or not. I like to start at the top, review what's been said. I've found the option in the user CP with "standard/Linear+", but that doesn't seem to make any difference. Help?

The new forum is different, I think I am going to like the change. Saw something mentioned about an update that will have even more features... :D

The new white backed logo looks much better. Nice work.
