    Welcome to the new version of The Lounge!

    Welcome to the shiny new version of The Lounge!

    Those of you who have been with me since the beginning - 15 years now, eh? - have been, uh, treated to several major makeovers in Lounge software. Along the way we've gone from being a small, shoestring operation to what you see now: quite likely the largest independent help board for Microsoft software, a life support system for the hapless seeking help.

    Today marks another big day in the evolution of The Lounge. We're switching the guts of the system over to vBulletin, a board software system that's widely regarded as the best in the industry. There are two big reasons for the shift. First, going with vBulletin will give us lots of room to grow. Second, we now have at our beck and call a sizable pool of tech support people who know the inner workings of vBulletin.

    You may have noticed the changes in the user interface. I, personally, think the new version is tremendous - much easier to figure out, and easier to use particularly for folks who spend a lot of time here. There were also many changes made under the covers.

    That's just the beginning. Since we now have a bunch of support people, all sorts of improvements are possible. Stay tuned.

    Got an idea? A suggestion? A... gripe? You came to the right place. Post your feedback right here, and let's see what we can do to turn The Lounge into the best board in the biz.

    If you're trying to sign in, and the new Lounge won't accept your username/password, you've hit a snag in the upgrade.

    Apologies all over. But we knew a small percentage of folks would get stung.

    The problem originates with our new board software, vBulletin. It allowed us to bring across almost all of the username/password combos from the old Lounge. But if you're one of the unlucky few, you won't be able to sign in using your old password.

    The solution? Click the "Forgot Password" link. You'll be prompted for your username - which is still there, trust me. But then you'll get an email which allows you to set your password.

    Sorry. It's a technical snag that didn't have a good solution. So we opted to run a few of you through the Lost Password maze. When you get into the new Lounge, I hope you think it's worth the bump!

    We are aware of an issue with the HTML in the Windows Secrets Columns Forum. We are working to resolve this issue, I apologize for any inconvenience.

    Thumbs up

    It certainly looks like an improvement over the previous incarnation, Woody

    One initial suggestion; the addition of a Lounge > Today's Posts (= last 24 hours) tab or sub-entry under Quick Links would be useful to me, maybe to others also

    If there's an equivalent elsewhere and I've missed it, apologies already!

    @Satrow -

    Yep, I could use something along those lines, too....

    Only problem I've had so far is that LastPass didn't recognize the sign-in page. Once I entered my user id and password manually, everything went simmingly...

    BTW, I'm blown away by the speed. This version's much, much faster than the old version.

    Yes please I can't see that anymore either, other time periods (like 48 hours) would also be appreciated.

    Thanks

    Hey Woody, What happened to our Thumbs Up numbers in the old Lounge? Those of us with quite a few were proud of them, now they are gone.

    I am having problems posting replies to threads. Even when logged in, when I press Post Quick Reply, I get an error message telling me I have to refresh the page and log in again before I can post the reply. I will update this post if having the same error with the Go Advanced button for posting threads.

    Couple of other things, 1) There is not an Edit Post button on all posts I have previously entered. Is this only for posts carried over from the old Lounge or will we not be able to edit posts once they are posted. I was able to edit this post, but not some that were carried over from the old Lounge.
    2) I see no way of using common names when entering links as in the old Lounge. I was able to add links, but just the Link itself is displayed, not an easier to read common name. Foe example http://explore.live.com/windows-live...tials?os=other instead of Windows Live Essentials. Is this a glitch or will this be the new method?

    I think the migration didn't go so well. Info on names and interests and such seems to have been lost. I am supposed to have now a date of birth, which I never filled in, which is obviously wrong and that I seemingly cannot edit or remove.

    I have been trying this, and got it to work this way.
    Type the text I want displayed, select it, then click the Insert Link button and enter the URL.

    eg Google

    What did not work for me was displaying images. When I use the Insert Image button, I see the name of the image file, rather than the image itself.
    Bike.jpg

    Added later: This seems to have fixed itself. The image is now displayed.

    That's pretty standard with the vBulletin software that we're now using in the Lounge. Highlight the text, click Insert Link, Ctrl+V or right-click and paste the URL in.

    EDIT: It doesn't work for me it just adds the above edited non-existent link to the selected text.

    EDIT #2: Changed my Message Editor settings to the Standard Editor from Advanced and all seems well - phew!

    BBcode is available for links and images.

    The Networking forum does not save the sort order of the threads.Several times I've set it to descending "Last post by" to see the threads with the newest posts first. When I come back to the forum it is sorted on Title. This appears to be the only forum acting this way.

    Well, this is a nice step backwards. Apparently the lounge has been switched to the same damn sucky forum software that bikeforums.net uses. And it exhibits the exact same behavior. If I open the lounge on my computer, but get called away for a period of time (length as yet to be determined) it marks all of the forums as read even though I haven't even OPENED THEM YET !! (Yes, I'm shouting). Bikeforums.net also does this. It's damned aggravting because I can't tell what I've looked at and what I've not looked at. The only thing that should be marking threads as read should be ME. Not the @##*&*&* forum software. The admins at bikeforums.net were unable to help me. I'm hoping somebody here is smarter than they are.

    A) Why does it do this? B) How do I make it STOP!

    If there is no answer to B I guess I have to do here what I have to remember to do there...which is navigate to another webpage until I have time to keep reading the bikeforums.net webpage (or the Lounge in this case).

    This is very aggravtinig and when I saw that they were switching forum software I cursed and prayed that they were not switching to this crap. Prayers not answered. FWIW, I LOVED the way the Lounge worked before. Simple. Perfect. Very easy to tell what threads were new with merely a glance. The damn envelopes look too much alike now.
