Just got back from church to find it on the fritz again! They keep saying they're working on it... so upsetting to me!

Roey, thanks for your sweet offer! I just get nervous that people will think i am trying to profit off the site.

We know you are not Soda, and if you DO need to change server if you throw up the Donate button again, I'm sure many of us with the means to do so will help you towards it. I know too that you often spend quite a bit on maintaining the Border to such a high standard. And thanks so much for that!

I've finally gotten a couple answers. There has been a malicious attack against our server. They have still not been able to successfully counter this attack. They cannot give me a timeline for resolution, but they do say they are working on it.

Seems to be good to go today. I wasn't able to access it Friday much and was busy over the weekend.

Hopefully it's fixed!

Soda, I'm sure this is very frustrating for you. Thanks for all you and your helpers do.

There is a part of the message board that I struggle to keep up with. I think I've worked out why.

On the On the Road with the Eagles discussion area, The topics with the latest posts do not appear at the top of the page.

I've been documenting Joe's current tour. You'd have scroll past Glenn's page; that hasn't had a post since 09-26-2013, to reach them. I think it may have been better if I posted them in the Joe Walsh, Band Member Discussion Area.

Otherwise, it's an enjoyable breeze reading through all the latest posts... and commenting.

F50 - I really don't know if there's any way to change this or not. Any of the forums that contain sub-forums work this way (i.e. the Former Eagles and Cheap Talk and Wine forums). The thread with the most recent post shows at the top of sub-forum it is posted in, but the order of the sub-forums remains static. I believe it works this way on all message boards, regardless of which software is used. However, Soda is the technical design guru here so I'll defer to her expertise. So, for organizational purposes, you are posting Joe's show information and reviews in the correct place, which is very much appreciated!

The forums themselves don't change order. In that, they are the same as the main forums. I'm afraid you'll just have to scroll a bit!

No one would think that, Soda, absolutely not.

  3. Scroll down to "Miscellaneous Options" where you will see "Message Editor Interface."
  4. Using the drop-down menu, select "Enhanced Interface - Full WYSIWYG Editing." (For the curious - WYSIWYG stands for "What You See Is What You Get.")

If you've done all that and still aren't seeing the formatting options, it's a board glitch.

I'll investigate making that the default rather than "Standard."

Edited to Add: This has been changed to be the default, so you don't have to do the whole User CP thing unless you want to change it BACK to the plain standard.

Once you do that, you'll also see the smilies on the side.

The reason that the ones you have selected in the past - the ones at the bottom - always go in the title line are because they are "post icons." They are to indicate whether your thread is something you're mad about, happy about, etc. Certainly, in the absence of the smilies on the right due to your standard text editor, it's understandable you'd get confused by that! So, to make it short and sweet:

Smilies at the bottom are "post icons" that go in the title; smilies on the side are the ones that go into your post.
Since we got Windows 10 I see all the formatting instead of the results; i.e. when I click on a smiley I get the text of it instead of the image & when I bold text I see the B at each end. I have never changed the format from WYSIWYG. This is happening in both Edge & Chrome; we uninstalled Firefox which is the browser I previously used.
