As most of you are aware, we had a crash to forums and were down for over two days a while back. We did have to do an upgrade to the vbulletin software to fix the forums and that has created changes, VB no longer provide the hybrid or threaded forums. There are some issues/changes to the forums we are not able to fix or change. Also note the link address change, please let friends and posters know of the changed link to the forums. For now this is the only link available, https://forums.carm.org/vb5/ but if clicking on forum on carm.org homepage it will now send you to this link. (edited to add https: now working.

Again, we are working through some of the posting and viewing issues to learn how to post with the changes, you will have to check and test the different features, icons that have changed. You may also want to go to profile settings,since many of the notifications, information in profile, also to update/edit your avatar by clicking on avatar space, pull down arrow next to login for user settings.

Edit to add "How to read forums, to make it easier."
Pull down arrow next to login name upper right select profile, or user settings when page opens to profile,select link in tab that says Account. Then select/choose options, go down to Conversation Detail Options, Select Display mode Posts, NOT Activity, that selection of Posts will make the pages of discussions go to last post on last page rather than out of order that happens if you choose activity threads. Then be sure to go to bottom and select SAVE Changes in your profile options. You can then follow discussions by going through the pages, to the last page having latest responses. Then click on the other links Privacy, Notifications, to select viewing options,the forums get easier if you open all the tabs or links in your profile, user settings and select options. To join Super Member, pull down arrow next to login name, select User Settings and then click on tab/link at top that says Subscriptions.

Thank you for your patience and God Bless.

    Have you checked your settings to make sure you are accepting them from everyone, or is a subscription needed?

      Mine work fine. Both sending and receiving. Might be a PEDKAC situation, professor. Consider 4Him's inquiry.

        The pms do not work. Never did. I am also a computer programmer. That was my last career...editing sites like this one in PHP..in fact, I am fairly expert in the programming code of THIS site... VBulletin. I have no pms. Never work. Not on my end since I know how to do all I need to on my end.

          the subscription point might be valid. I will check that next.

          Look...I rarely if ever send any pm. Anything I can say, I can say in the thread. However, it is frustrating if the functions do not function. Thank you for the help. I will into that subscription setting.

              Basically, my settings don't show anything that I am aware of, that would prevent sending or receiving PMs. If you have recommended settings, please post them. But since my screen shot will not upload I can't show you my settings. I have been able to upload images in the past, so I am not sure why I cannot do so now. I tried saving in png, jpg etc..and did various things to make the upload work...but nothing worked.

                  I'll see what I can do to check settings. In the meantime, go back to your profile and "save" your settings again, and see if that makes a difference. I know the boards have been a little wacky sometimes since the techs installed whatever it was to stop the spammers.

                    Yes..i saw that on the Apologetics forum and other forums..much spam recently...and obviously that is high priority. Thank you so much 4Him.
