Not sure if anyone else is having this problem, but on the store, chapter, members, and about tabs, it shows my login name and the logout option, but in the event and forum tabs, it looks like I'm not logged in because it has "login" instead of my name, but I am actually logged in and can perform all of the functions. I'm using a laptop with Windows 10 and Chrome.

Thank you for reporting this issue. It has already been noticed and logged, so hopefully it will be fixed soon.

I agree with you on both topics.

Suggestions:
Be able to edit the subject line to add the title of your post rather than the subject appearing like it can be edited but cannot.

Resetting password:

For forgotten password instead of resetting it, send an email "clue" to the member as a reminder. for example if my password is shammy&8 the clue could be "pet and eight". Now I watch ACMOC on three devices, iphone, ipad, and desktop and when i have to change the password it has to be changed on all three devices. Much easier to have a hint and leave the password unchanged. [color=][color=][/color][/color]
Tabs for Write, Message and Preview can be confusing

It looks like the PM function is working, but people don't know they have received a PM, the old board had a pop up sign telling you to check your inbox, and that system worked well, we need it for this new board too, because finding your way into your message section is too clunky.

I'm the first to admit I'm the dumbest person around, and the narrow screen of this new board has been annoying me, till BruceOz kindly showed me last night how to adjust the screen size above the 100% setting, and now this page fills my desk top computer screen, much better!

Thanks BruceOz, you taught me how to widen the screen, I taught you where your private messages are hiding, so we are even!
Thanks
Mike

I think "Members" who are online should have their names identified by different colors, a Financial member could have their name highlighted in Highway Yellow, while a non Financial Member could be in blue, that way we can quickly see who is using this new BB, because I assumed the list of "Members currently online" only identified ACMOC Financial Members, but it's been suggested it is actually just any member of the BB, financial and non financial.

I'm paying to help fund this BB, and have done so since 2007, I'd like to see quickly and easily on here who is helping me, and who is not.
Thanks
Mike

I just spoke to member RiverinaD4, he's been having all sorts of problems trying to log in, using both his older desk top computer and new Samsung android cell phone, he has to keep creating a new password every time, and the screen image on his cellphone is all wavy, he's given up trying to use the new website, and he's half my age, and pretty tech savvy.

He's a trucky who drives all over Australia each week and relies on his phone for business and pleasure, if younger guys like him are giving up on ACMOC because of this upgrade, I wonder how many others are in the same situation?
Regards
Mike

Hello Mike,
I’m concerned by your comments about RiverinaD4. One of the issues these days with developing new software is all the different devices it has to work on. Having said that, the new site works fine (except for a few bugs) on my windows10 laptop, iPad and iPhone. Perhaps if anyone reading this has a new Samsung Android cellphone they can report their experience with the new website.
Best regards John

I think there is still a problem like RiverinaD4 mentioned. I am on the site with my desktop no problem. I tried to log onto the site on my iphone and my password did not work. So I tried the new password route on my iphone and now it tells me there is no such member with my name and email. Double checked everything and same result so something funny is going on even with the reset password feature. The email address is correct as I get notices of new postings and the log in shows the correct user name with the green check mark but when I enter the email to reset the password it tells me there is no such member.

So now on the third try the site finally sends me the magic password. (For my two cents why send such a convoluted, complicated password that takes about 3 minutes to enter via the iphone)
So hopeful that I have got something to work, I enter the magic password and it will not accept it but tells me no such luck. Tried 3 times and gave up as each time it tells me wrong user and password. Very frustrating, as I have never experienced such frustration on any site I have ever been on with this one being the worst. I will call Mary on Monday but we should not have to call Mary every time there is a glitch in this system. I have my opinion how this new site rollout has been but I will keep that opinion to myself.,

It is getting late and I have to clean the dog pee off the couch so will be hopeful Monday will be better.

Is the private messaging actually working, I'm not having much luck with it at all. I agree with others there should be some kind of alert and a quick way to access messaging.
