Hi Jarno - fixed both FB and YT links so they work now.

For anyone else struggling with this, simply use a BROWSER to login to FB and then YT. Simply COPY the account name that appears after xxx.com/.... into your relevant profile "boxes" for FB andthen YT and it should work. It's important only your account name is used (+"channel/... if you want to link to your YT channel) and NOT any "http://..." stuff that comes before it.

Jarno, have another look at your PM inbox. PM's work a little differently on here than the previous forum and it caught me out at first. If still having difficult, post back on here and I'll give some pointers - have to go out now.... :)

Thank you, sir :)

Um, did you made some changes few days ago? That "unread post" button is in different place...

Anyways, seems that after that update, it doesent work. If I hit that button, it says that there is no unread post. But if I hit "recent post" there is alot of post that I havent read...

It's been pointed out that the very helpful "member location" information did not transfer across form the old to the new forum. It would be useful if everyone would take a few seconds to add this information back into their profile, so it shows over on the left - have a look at mine ; "Colchester, Essex".

To do this, "hover" your pointer over "Profile" on the grey bar above, then select "Forum Profile" when it appears. Simply complete the "Location" box and clcik on "Save Profile" at the bottom of the screen. All done  :)

Any idea why on the left there it shows both 'San Francisco, CA' and Oakland, CA?

I checked settings and it doesn't say San Francisco in my profile anywhere  :dontknow:

Shows SF twice now instead of Oakland.

Not a big deal really. Thanks anyway.

I think I can see what is happening with "locations". When the forum was first set up there was no display of location in the user profile, so a "custom mod" was added to request location on user registration, which displays at the top as "Location: xxxxxxx". Subsequent upgrades to the forum software now allow a user to add/change their location in their profile, and this displays at the bottom of the profile.

Unfortunately, I can't see a way of edited the original custom entry! I can turn that display off, but this would mean no location display for 99% of users as this is a required field when people register on the forum.

So, apologies, no easy fix I can see for this at the moment. There must be a way, but not yet able to see how............ :(
