i just noticed the ''quick reply'' window at the bottom of every post
very nice addition, always wondered why hotrodders didn't have this function.
now you can use the quick reply to post and hit the back button to get back to the forum
before i had to click reply to post, type my reply, click on post and the go into the back history to get back 3 posts

Advanced Search

Have we lost the ability to do "Advanced Searches"?

IIRC, we used to be able to specify specific keywords ... and author ... in order to chase down a thread that we know has been discussed.

i.e. "302 351W block" and "66GMC" would have returned a thread that I participated in that contained pictures and text that were useful in pointing out the differences in deck height.

Not sure if you are talking about the “old” search engine that allowed the author and key words to be used to do a search, but if it is:

Click on ‘Search’, just above the ‘Log Out’ button at the top right of the page. Once there, scroll all the way to the bottom of the page and there you will see ‘For more results from the Hotrodders Bulletin Board, try the forum deep search.’ Clicking on forum deep search will get you to the old search engine.

The old search engine should be more accessible than where it is. Even putting it nearer the top of the page where it is now would help; where it is now, you'd never know it was there if you weren't told about it or accidentally found it.

Any word on when the Photo (Project) Journals will be working again?

Also, is it possible to export your own photo journal?

My Photo Journal

First I want to thank you for a great site.
But I have a problem.
When do you think that access to my photo journal will be fixed?
I have been trying to update mine for weeks.
Every time I go to photo journal it shows that I am not logged in. I log in and a screen pops up thanking me for logging in, but goes back to the same photo journal screen showing that I am not logged in.
I got a ton of photos to up date.

I apologise for this issue.

We're investigating and working on a fix for this problem as a matter of urgency. We're aiming to restore full access to your photo journals within the next 24 hours or so. I'll keep this thread updated with status updates.

I sure would like to see the gray backgrounds disappear when using the white skin that is set in the user's options.
Makes it very hard to read.

There's been many negative comments about this.

Can you give us some info regarding this issue?

Yep, that's exactly what I was looking for ... and no kidding about the "you'd never know it was there" part.
Thanks, Cobalt

Perhaps Helena will move that link right up beside the [Search] button?

PS ... This site continues to be the BEST and FREE site of it's kind. Keep on with the changes and improvements, and especially thanks for asking for the involvement and feedback from the members.
