Hello everyone,

To help out with the ease of use, now when users click on the FORUMS link they are taken to this page:

http://www.theblackvault.com//m/article ... age-Forums

Once you have read the message, you can click on enter forums, and a new window will popup making the forum use cleaner and simpler.

This also gets rid of the bug where the page loads at the bottom etc.

John

Oh, and more importantly, you will see the URLs at the top to link over to another thread.

I am still working on fixing the other way, but for now, I hope this works.

Using this new link, the members toolbar that used to be at the bottom of my screen has disappeared. Is there a way to bring that back?

Unfortunately, not this way. As I stated, still trying to make the other method work. Its just a trade off.

I've been using the new link for a couple days now. I like the functionality so that's great and thanks.

But I noticed that when I create a shortcut to the link, it doesn't work. I have to go to the blackvault forums the traditional way, then click forums, then click the link to proceed. There's no way to get it to load in a separate window like you've set up, straight away via direct URL shortcut?

I suggest bookmarking this page:

http://www.theblackvault.com//m/article ... age-Forums

Although I may be closer to fixing some bugs, I am thinking of keeping this page with multiple ways to enter the forum.. to give users the most options and flexibility.

No matter how I fix it, it, of course, will never satisfy everyone 🙂

To qmark and others, if you login with the login that gives you the control panel with PM notification, it will stay in the background if you then proceed to the forum the new way.

I'll try the new URL for a bookmark John, thanks!
