    Still don't get any of this and admin has had plenty of time to address the issues. You should be making it easier for us to navigate the site, not more difficult. I don't know what a cache is either. If I "delete" my browser, am I deleting all internet files in my email? I'm out of here till someone tells me the site is working properly again -- and means it this time. Enough is enough. Weeks have gone by since I first reported my problems. We're not technical gurus. That's the job of the site administrator.

    debbie, I think clear the browser just means to delete everything at the top of the screen? I'm like you, I don't get the jargon.

    LOL, sorry. We have a tendency to do that. A browser is what you use to access the internet. Examples are Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Chrome. The link above will show you how to clear the cache for each of these.

    I'll be waiting to see when I can post blogs and contests with color and my choice of font and its size. How is it some people can do all of these things and even include pictures (as I used to be able to do a couple years ago)? The toolbar I get has no options for color, fonts, pictures, etc. I know you've been working on this for weeks.

    Just play around with the new blog posting interface. It is different than the previous one, but more compatible with newer browsers. It allows everything the old one does except coloring fonts. We are looking into how o add that feature.

    We have a NEW tool for posting blogs because the old one was not compatible with newer browsers. The interface has changed. You can insert photos, however, coloring text is NOT possible with the NEW interface (unless you know HTML).
