    Default Forum Update - cont

    Going from vBulletin 3.8 to 4.2 was a major upgrade and had to be done in steps. It seems to be working well now. Most importantly, all the posts, archives, images and links seem to be intact. Unfortunately one of the side effects was that a number of settings went back to default. The most obvious is the "look" - both the TalkShopBot customization and the menus/options shown. (If you are not a registered user, you can find instructions under the sticky at the top of the this topic.)
    • Check your personal settings by selecting >Forum >Forum Actions dropdown >General Settings.
      I prefer to view the latest postings at the top of a thread and had to reset this option.
    • The opening view is now "What's New" > Activity Stream. Option to the right of Activity Stream is New Posts which should show new posts since you last read forum.
    • Your username now shows on posts instead of your real name. Contact me if you want to change your username.
    • Edit time is now 25 min.
    • You can add 4 images OR 1 video to post.


    I will continue to work on the new "features" that came with upgrade. It's much easier now that the power, heat and water are back on!! My thanks and admiration to the crews that removed the downed trees and reconnected the power lines under hazardous conditions.

    Thanks very much, Nancy! We appreciate the availability of the Forum a great deal! And having the direct instructions to return much of it to "normal" is awesome!

    Glad you survived the Carolina Blizzard of 2015! I have a friend near the SB headquarters, they lost power for 30 hours! House temp dropped to 47 degrees inside. Lucky me live only an hour from SB and had under an inch of snow, and its all gone already.

    Also, the current project folder ends at 2014. I didn't see a 2015 folder.

    Thank you!!!

    Any chance it will go back to displaying real names, instead of login names?

    Actually in this day of hacking and online stalking it would be good to have the choice. The owner of a business, for instance, has a real need to keep his information private!

    You have to send Nancy an email request to get your name changed. That's what I did. Why it doesn't default to real names anymore is lame. A hallmark of this forum is that you use real names.

    Folder 2015 has been added in Virtual Show and Tell.

    Displaying login or user name on posts is a new "feature" of this software version. There doesn't seem to be a way to change it. However, I will change your login name if you send me a request to do so. If you use the forum's PM, it's easier to identify you. Changing your login name will not affect your forum ranking or number of posts attributed to the user.

    Calendars aren't used so link has been removed. Info on TJ's training sessions and Camp ShopBots are posted under the Camp ShopBots/User Groups/Training Classes topic.
