as mentioned above, i added radified to my "trusted site" list (only site listed there) and enabled:

"Allow Programmatic clipboard access"

(had to scroll way down near the bottom.)

that seems to have remove the prompt in IE7.

Cool.

Yeah, that was getting to be a real pain. I was hoping it figure out my preferences by itself, but no such luck.

Full-screen, max'ed out side-to-side... at 1280x800 images are somewhat distorted.

I can't modify any of my posts copied over from the old board onto this board anymore.  I was trying to update a few url's and on any posting that wasn't created in the last two days, I only see the Quote but NOT the Quote/Modify/Delete icons.

1. Did the id's carry over?
2. Will there be any mass Find/Replace of url's to fix them, as documented here:

Regarding the clipboard update, I discovered that the new board copies the post into the clipboard before posting it.  That's why the window-alert-popup occurs.  You can verify this by posting something, and then immeditely edit/paste function into an open notepad screen.  Not sure the reason, but that is what is happening.

I guess if there was some failure in the posting or dropping of the Internet connection, you would not have lost your whole post, which has happened a few times in the past.  If I am composing a long post, as a safety precaution I usually select all/copy/paste to the notepad periodically.

Well that's a cool feature, especially if you were to lose the post, which is not unheard of.

I changed the max post length from a default of 5500, to 9999.

And now the prompt makes sense.

I will see if it copied this post to my clipboard.

That's weird. I can see edit button. Maybe cuz I am logged in as admin.

Seems like the new forum doesn't recognize that you were the one who created the post.

Lemme make you a moderator and see if that gives you the edit option.

Oops, the distortion was in the original image at the original scale.  I just failed to notice it earlier.

I now have the edit option, not only for my own posts but for ALL posts.  So, that wouldn't be a good global workaround.  Appears that there is a unique ID-field associated with each logonid which didn't carry over or requires special handling.

(you can remove my moderator setting now. thanks.)
