Can't Change Preferences on User Control Panel

#1 Post by James H. Alton II » Wed Apr 09, 2014 12:24 pm

The new website lost my signature block and my preferences (like "Notify me when a reply is posted"). I can't find anything on the new User Control Panel to re-enter everything:

Am I missing something? Fonts Matching Backgrounds? Is there a new procedure for changing preferences?

I did notice one thing, My name on the forum used to be "Jim Alton" and now it's "James H. Alton II"

I'll answer to either one, but maybe the new website has me on a new account.

When I click onto 'User control' and then click 'digests' next screen shows 'fatal error'. what is wrong here.

Jim - the web guys (and girl) are making continuous changes to the site - this name issue was addressed for at least a few. See more in the viewtopic.php?f=1&t=36015 thread.
Rick - the digest is causing some problems for the developers - please be patient, they're working on this and other issues.
Please consolidate all new site issues in the "Still Some Forum Issues - Post All Website Issues Here" thread.
Best regards
