    Thanks for investigating, Kopachris.

    I was not too happy about removing the .postrow auto from the postbit template, because it could cause images to behave in a wrong way, so instead I have reverted to the old way of displaying posts with two columns. Sorry to those of you who liked the new way, but this was the only way I could get rid of the scrollbars without risking other problems by removing code.

    Code:
    .postrow {
      overflow: auto;
    }
    and the other says
    Code:
    .postrow {
      min-height: 1px;
      overflow: visible;
    }
    Getting rid of the first one and keeping the second one seems to solve the problem. Because of the way vBulletin handles css files, I can't give you a specific file where the problem lies; Firebug just gives me: http://www.talkclassical.com/css.php...s,lightbox.css as the wrong one.

    According to the settings you should be able to both edit and delete blog posts... strange.

    Hi mamascarlatti,

    I had to search around for it myself ... but found it.

    It's got a new Icon this: which is right on the tool bar for replies. Hover the mouse pointer over it and it indicates "Insert Video" - click on it and then enter the whole URL for the YouTube video ... and presto, imbedded in the post.

    What is wrong is the spell checker? Before the upgrade I could use the one that comes with Internet Explorer, now when I click on it the text disappears. And then if I click on this one on the upper right corner, it says I need to download it, and if I try, it gives me a crash signal and nothing happens. I don't think it's a matter of firewall since I can easily download other stuff with my current settings. Any help?

    A spell checker is functioning for me; where it's coming from I dunno. I use SeaMonkey rather than IE, don't know if that is significant. MS Word is in my computer, maybe from there?

    I use Firefox exclusively - Under Tools/Options/Advanced/General there is a tick box for "check my spelling as I type".

    Mis-spellings are underlined with a red wavy line.

    Yep! This is a great upgrade! It does take you a few moments to appreciate it though. ))

    I must add my appreciation, it is an improvement in particular the blog feature, I have been looking at World Violinist's blog I think we are going to find out a lot more about our fellow members [is that good or bad??] 10 out of 10 for me.
    btw my google spell check works OK.

    Question to Administrator: Now that you have been using version 4 for awhile, are you glad you upgraded?

    Absolutely ... besides the improvements that are readily available to regular member, there were vast improvements in the way the forum operates that have been of great help to the forum staff. Spam-O-Matic was one great addition in this new version ... all those spammer registrations that are now automatically denied, were being handled manually, mostly by the admins, one at a time.

    So, yes I am very happy that we upgraded the forum software.

    Yours isn't the first query on this matter, Andante. However, I do check the server loads periodically and they are all running optimally. Anything less than 2.0 seconds for the processor response time is considered well above average.

    The server processor response times for this forum have been in the range of 0.15 to 0.39 seconds consistently.

    My DSL connection loads this forum in about 2 seconds.
