I'm having problems submitting posts...takes one or two tries!

Seems like others are too:

When searching on trips and bringing up the trip details, the text gets cut off when clicking Destinations or Inspire me...take a look at the area in a red box..

Also, when going to your Inbox, the Inbox and Sent Messages are practically lost...see area highlighted in red.

Also, I can't seem to edit a post. Previously I could post a message then go back and edit it. I just posted the message above and there's no option anywhere to edit it. Was this option removed?

Most of the time when I click the back button I get an error "the page cannot be displayed". I have to hit back maybe 2 or 3 times to finally get back to my previous page.

When I do finally get back, the screen seems shifted to the right.

and finally...previously when you entered a thread, you could quickly go back to the root by clicking on the path of the forum near the top of the thread, that appears to be gone. You now have to click back, back etc. It was much better the other way....it used to be where I drew the box in the attached.

The "recent posts" flash module in the community page is always empty for me (on all the browsers I tried). Anyway, using Flash kinda suck because it doesn't work on my iPhone.

Hi

When I tried to sign in using the username and password I had pre-upgrade, it wasn't recognised which is a pain. :( Is there anyway of getting it back?

I was signing in to point out that the Destination, Inspire Me (etc) tabs move across the page when on the Waterhole and secondly, a Costa Rican holiday is listed under 'Featured Trips in Borneo'. Thirdly, I can no longer view the photos that people have attached to their usernames.

There's seems to be a link at the bottom, but I also miss the links at top that let you easily return to either the forum or the board index.

Like DanielBMe, I have no edit option either. And no reply option (on a post). I am using Firefox 3.5 on Mac OS 10.5.

And there's no signature feature any more in the user control panel. If that's really the intent, then no point of having "Widgets" under "Share & Connect".

This is turning into a bug list thread. :)

I just logged out, and tried to log back in. The login button on the waterhole forum main page is not working. It just displays a white square instead of a small window with login/password fields.

Yep a few bugs around but the backroom guys are working on fixes.
Meantime anyone reading this having trouble logging in, go to 'Share and Connect.'When that page comes up, use the 'Login' at top right, and that link works well.

Hey Jimshu

Sorry to be a whinger but I still couldn't log in with my old details even when I used your instructions. I then logged in with my new details using the Login link on the share and connect page but then it just came back to the 'fill in your details and become a member page'. I thought that I would have to use a third set of login details in as many days when I noticed that my login name had appeared in the top right hand corner. So, although I was logged in, the page I was looking at gave the impression that I wasn't. :?
