Here's an updated procedure for subscribing to the Digest.

First, make sure you're signed in to the main site - your name should appear on the right side of the brown main masthead.
Then, go to the 356Talk Forum page. You will see another name below and slightly to the right of the name on the masthead (see image below)

If you don't see the second name as highlighted in yellow below, try reducing the image size by (on a windows machine) holding down the control key and hitting the - (minus) key. The second name may be hidden just off the right side of your screen.

Click your name as shown below and a drop down box will allow you to select User Control Panel. Note - there are two Member name areas - click the highlighted one in the picture

Try holding the control button and clicking the minus sign button to reduce the width of the title bar.

We are addressing each issue as it comes up. As I have posted in a couple of places this was not an upgrade that we did because we wanted to. It was forced upon us to maintain functionality across the site. There is no going back. Our web guy is working on resolving each problem as it comes up. I know it is frustrating- I am at the receiving of all these complaints. Eventually we will be back on even keel, at least until the next required upgrade.

I used the "control -" suggestion to reduce the width of the title bar and the "contol panel" suddenly appeared in the drop down options and the other title bar buttons became operational. Thanks Curt and others.

Greg got me sorted out - Thanks Greg!

My laptop doesn't like the new format, but we will adapt. "The Dude will abide"
