    As being one of the ones critical of the previous one, I just wanted to say I LOVE the new one. Nice job!

    I am just glad to say Firefox saves your page scaling preferences. I was able to do Ctrl-minus twice to get the forum to be more readable on a desktop PC, the temp scale change luckily doesn't carry over to other websites. Base look is just just way too big for me, very phone/tablet oriented.

    I do like the new header though! Nicely done!

    8 ads in one thread? I hope something is broken and that's not what we can expect now.

    I installed Norton ad blocker and it didn’t help.

    I’m gone if it continues.

    It's not the way... I just noticed all the ads and reported it to our ad guy to see what the deal is, we're not supposed to have that many.

    Okay, we think we found the problem. Google has a new setting called "Automatic Ads" which was somehow defaulted to "on" so we just turned it off and hopefully it will clear things up. It was noted it may take 24 hours to clear out so I appreciate your patience.

    Much better now with the page fitting my screen. Menu bar is back, much better than clicking the 'quick nav' icon and then having to scroll up.

    I think it’s nice to be able to see where people are living (if they choose to enter that info) - any chance we can get that back?

    Ah, good point and it makes it cozy. I turned it on, it'll show when you hover over their avatar and they've entered that information. : )

    As long as it does not affect the infectious positivity of the Bazza posts then groovy.

    (This may not work for you if you have some sort of intensive ad blocker/firewall/privacy filter (like Ghostery) that blocks embeds, you'll need to "whitelist" Twitter in this case)

    Just paste the URL of the tweet in the message and it'll automatically embed. To find the URL of the tweet, click the down arrow on the upper right of it -- as in here:

    Screen-Shot-2018-07-19-at-12.07.21-PM.jpg

    The link will look something like this:

    Code:
    https://twitter.com/GatorCountry/status/1019618215226499078
    ...just paste it in the editor here and presto, it shows up after you've saved the post:

    Good morning Ray.....

    Noticed the improvements immediately! Swamp Gas logo upsized and nicer menu layout. Way to go! HUGE improvement!

    Hopefully everyone else will be on board. I use a desktop, not mobile, BTW.

    THANK YOU for updating our site.....I think we're ready for some football now!

    All the best to you and yours, Baz :emoji_v:
