    Tyler, it was a victim to my "neatening up" campaign.

    Why don't you go to your User Control Panel and select "Send Notification Email When a Private Message is Received". I have always used that choice and love it.

    You don't have to click at all if you enable PM email notification. Try it, you may like it.

    Len, that solution won't work for me, my email provider kicks all emails that look like solicitations to the garbage box. They use a pretty aggressive settting on Barracuda to do that, and it doesn't always respond to manipulation to allow them through.

    I liked it the way it was, can't we make that an option, at least?

    You can access them threw the (quick links) tab at the far right of the tool bar but yes it is more clicks.

    I use the (quick links) all the time to view (todays post)
    rather than the (new posts) tab
    because I do not like the fact that (new posts)
    does not show what I have already read.

    Also I have to slide the page to access it because
    the page format is to large for the screen.
    That also goes for any post I read,
    Have to slide the page back and forth.

    Bill, I changed it back for now. I am stumped on some other parts of what I was trying to improve to clean up the navbar area.

    By the way, regarding your email issue, does that mean you can't use email notification for your subscribed threads or even get the monthly newsletter?
    -------------------
    gamehauler, does that username mean you like to help others haul out their trophies? How does one contact you for this service?

    And what is the screen resolution of your monitor? There shouldn't be any necessary side scrolling for the 95% of our users who have screen resolutions of 1024x768 or higher.
