    HI Dave,

    Look to the top right corner of the page, and you'll see a little person icon (that's your control panel), then an envelope (conversations aka private messages) and the the bell (the alert number of notifications)'

    and here is how it looks opened

    ALSO, the conversations do not Delete. You can look to the top and find Leave Conversation, click that and you are not part of it any longer and you will not see it.

    Hi. In the old Private Messages, I had custom folders with saved received messages in them, are they gone?

    The folders may be, but the messages should be there. In the bottom of the list of messages, you will find a tab for
    Conversation Display Options. You can open that to help you find the messages you had in separate folders.

    You can star conversations (similar to in gmail), to find them easier. And I'll look for more options for you.

    No folders for subscribed threads available either.

    No mention of folders for PMs or subscriptions in help.

    There is WATCHED THREADS AND WATCHED FORUMS at the top of the forum. While it does not make folders, it does allow you to choose what to watch.(subscribe) to.

    upload_2018-5-22_21-46-28.png

    If you click on the Watched Threads, you will see this type of opening.

    upload_2018-5-22_21-47-38.png

    When it first opens it will show your subscribed threads with new posts, or you can click on the show all watched threads, and the complete liset will come up.

    NEW POST at top of site.

    When you open that you will see 5 options for different types of New Posts. This may prove useful to you.

    Well, it's part of the gallery for images and is installed and marked YES for all levels of membership.

    This is how it looks. Gray is basic NO, Green is Allowed/Yes, Red is blocked.

    The big need, which everyone gripes about is being able to upload an image in a post, then rotate it if they need to. Hopefully, that will eventually be doable.....

    Right column/New Posts is only showing 8 recent posts. Admin is aware of this, and it will be increased......

    This may be one thing that I have to consult with my fellow wizards to get fixed for you. But, we are working on it.
