Hi Chris,

Two things

1. When one clicks on a link in a post it should open another tab (I am using Firefox) but it doesn't. Is there a setting for this?

2. How can I change my default email if it states the one I want to replace it with in already in use?

Hi Tom, thanks for pointing that out. When they released phpbb3 (which is what this board runs on) to be compatible with some new web standards they changed that link behavior so it no longer opens in a new window. I could do some surgery to make it go back to the old way (opening a new window) -- but unfortunately any existing posts would not be affected. Now, you can always right-mouse click on any link and use the option "open in new tab" to get the effect you are looking for.

On your email issue, send me a PM with your desired email and I will see why the profile app is complaining that it is already in use.
