    Adding control page to favorites

    This new look is great, but I have bumped into 1 problem - I thought I would bookmark my control panel so I can go straight there, but when I click on the bookmark I get a failure message saying 'All the required fields are not filled in'.

    Should I be doing this a different way?

    Just tried this, with both IE and NS, and did not get a problem. I also tried being both logged out and in, and still did not get any errors.
    Can you confirm which browser you are using, whether or not you have logged out, and if you have any other 'Lounge' windows open?
    (This sounds like an error message you would espect if, for example, you had not entered a subject field when making a new post. Hence the question re. other windows.)

    You don't need to try to bookmark the control panel - just set your preferences to "enter control panel at logon".

    I used this link <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.wopr.com/cgi-bin/w3t/start_page.pl>http://www.wopr.com/cgi-bin/w3t/start_page.pl</A>, and I closed all browsers down (IE 5.00.3103.1000)
    And got the problem - I did not log out last time I was in the lounge. I am accessing from inside my corporate network, througha proxy if that is important.

    I liked the idea of staying logged in , and hitting the bookmark and going straight into my controls page, but the login thing works OK, just not as quick to get there!

    OK - if I click on your link I get the same problem.
    (Did you create this bookmark in the previous lounge (i.e. last week), by any chance?)

    Try: <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.wopr.com/cgi-bin/w3t/login.pl?Cat=>http://www.wopr.com/cgi-bin/w3t/login.pl?Cat=</A>

    As Eileen says, you can set where you arrive when entering the lounge in your preferences - whether or not you have logged out.
    I normally do not log out, and start in the main index. I went to my CP and added it to my Favorites, and all seems to work well. I think you have a dicky link.

    That's not a legal link. Try Leif's suggestion. I'll add something to the FAQ when we've decided what's best.
