-Why is my display name different?
Now your display name will be the same as your log-in name. There is no option to have a display name that is different from your log-in name with this software. Be sure to change your username to whatever you want displayed. You will still have the ability to change your username every 30 days.
To do this:
Go to User CP (at the top of the screen, written in pink)
Click “Edit Email, Password & Username”
-Your siggy might look funky. They got a little messed up in the switch. To change your Siggy:
Click User CP (at the top of the screen, written in pink)
Click Edit Signature.
To change it to the regular editor (how it used to be) click the button at the top right corner.
If you had a scrolling sig, you’ll need to fix that too.
If you have links in your siggy (to threads/boards, etc) you’ll need to update them. The URLs are different on the new JM.
-Your PM box will have all your old messages in it.
Because of the differences in software, ALL PM’s were transferred over to the new board, including ones you deleted. Go ahead and delete them again.
If you had PM folders set up on the old site, you’ll have to set those up again.
-Also, PMs are automatically disabled. You will need to manually enable your PMs.
Go to user CP, click Edit Options, and check the 'enable PMs' box. If you want a pop up and/or email notification of a new PM, check those boxes as well.
-How can I quote more than one post?
Click this button to multi-quote: [IMG]/justmommies/vb/images/buttons/multiquote_off.gif[/IMG]
-How do I go to the last unread post?
Click this button for the last post: [IMG]/justmommies/vb/images/buttons/lastpost.gif[/IMG] (on the far right of the topic line),
or [IMG]/justmommies/vb/images/buttons/sortasc.gif[/IMG] to go the first NEW post in that thread (the left of the topic title if there are new posts)
-You are automatically subscribed to posts. To change this:
Go to User CP, Edit Options, and under 'Default Topic Subscription Mode', change it to "do not subscribe"
-The envelopes next to each post do mean something.
[IMG]/justmommies/vb/images/statusicon/thread.gif[/IMG]Means no new posts since you last read this topic.
[IMG]/justmommies/vb/images/statusicon/thread_new.gif[/IMG]Means new posts since you last read this topic.
[IMG]/justmommies/vb/images/statusicon/thread_hot.gif[/IMG]Means hot topic (15+ replies or 150+ views) with no new posts.
[IMG]/justmommies/vb/images/statusicon/thread_hot_new.gif[/IMG]Means hot topic with new replies.
If there is an arrow on the envelope, you have replied at least once to this thread.
If a thread has a [IMG]/justmommies/vb/images/misc/tag.png[/IMG] it means it is tagged. Hover your mouse over it to see the tags.
If a thread has a [IMG]/justmommies/vb/images/misc/subscribed.gif[/IMG] it means you are subscribed to the topic.
