    I haven't found a 'first unread post' function.
    .....
    That said, the community is far more important than the software.
    Thanks for that Lugh, I think I had forgotten. That is not real substitute for a forum by forum jump to first unread option.

    About that last, call me spoiled, but don't be too sure. It is a synergistic relationship

    Just because you don't know where you are going doesn't mean any road will get you there.

    When I sign in, the New Posts link is the first that I click on before anything else.

    I also really like the "go to first new post" feature

    My WSL browser favs shortcut is the New Posts link—ie this—I've always used that on vB & similar forums. Just saves a click, but every bit helps

    Quick update....

    We've been working our tails off during the holiday. Most of the infrastructure is in place, but I'm still stalled on getting the newsletter signup routine working -- the developers are putting the final touches on the sign-up prompt, but the plumbing seems to be working.

    I've asked Penton to stop taking new Newsletter subscribers through their sign-up mechanism. We should have the new sign-up working shortly.

    Still on schedule to get the first Newsletter out bright 'n early on Monday morning.

    Migrating the Lounge is next on the list, after we get the Newsletter squared away.

    And I'm still begging for 28 hour workdays....

    Woody & the development team have worked many, many hours over the holidays. Chasing bugs is an exhausting experience. The first new AskWoody Newsletter will be published soon.

    This is the biggest news ever for 2019. The old management team is back. One question though ( and maybe someone else has already asked since I didn't read the whole thread): Can one interchangeably switch between AskWoody forum and this one with the same username & password?

    If you have the SAME user name, yes they (Woody and Company) will try and cordate them.

    You won't be able to use this forum because it won't exist, it will be merged into AskWoody and you will only need one ID.

    cheers, Paul

    That's sad - I much prefer the layout and presentation of this forum to Ask Woody.

    @Paul T,

    Thanks for the answer. So if I understand correctly, I am already with AskWoody forum here on windowssecrets' Lounge. No need to register with a new account at AskWoody. Please, just correct me if I am wrong!

    That is the goal. If no one at AskWoody already has your current Windows Secrets account name, then your account name here at Windows Secrets will be the one that you will have at AskWoody.

    If your WS name has been used by some one else at AW, then you will not end up with the current name.
    It has been suggested, that you go to AW and make a account using the same as WS account. This will reserve the name, but if some else is using that name you will not be able to use your WS name.

    Option free zone, this site is being closed by Penton - the current owners. Woody has agreed to take over the site name and subscribers - you'll get a much better service.

    cheers, Paul
