Thank you kindly!  It's fixed now.

Hi, ya'll.

I don't have anything to say, just testing out the software.

Okay, now that we have more than one thread in this section, I've figured out what's going on.  You reply, and it dumps you back out into the section the thread is in.  I don't think I like it.

I noticed there.  Check your profile.  There's an option to change it so it returns to the topic.

I'll see if I can make that the default behaviour.

Did you?
Yes, you did.
Well, let's see.  I posted a couple of times in another section, and both times I was dumped back in the section's list of threads.  Also, I don't see any profile setting for this.

Edit to add:  Yep, still got dumped back in the list o' threads.

Edit to add:  Modify, however, does return me to the thread I posted in.

Hmmm. Maybe the setting I changed only affected people who joined before you. I'll take another look.

Found it!  It's not obvious.  In the menu at the top, hover over Profile, then click on Account Settings.  On that page, hover over Modify Profile, then click on Look and Layout.  There are controls for the quick reply, where to go after posting, etc.  Let's see how it works.

OK, that worked.  Now to play with some of the special effects:
Glow
Shadow
Marquee (this is about as annoying as <blink>, innit?)
Apparently, one cannot delete a post?

No, after what happened with the old forum, I've decided that the ability to delete posts is too easy to abuse. But there are valid reasons to delete posts, so if anyone really feels that a post they have made must be deleted then they can make their case with me. I just don't want 500 posts to suddenly disappear because someone had a bad day.

I suppose if one feels it is really necessary, he/she can always modify the post and delete the content.  The post will still be there but the objectionable material will be gone.

True, and I'd prefer that because at least it will append the "Edited by" to the post so that it's clear that the user did it and not me.

The delete post feature has saved me some embarrassment before when I posted something prematurely or too hastily written. 

I'll have to be more careful about hitting the reply button before thinking about whether I should really be posting a comment at all.  Is it possible to put a one hour or so limit on deletes?
