I enjoyed the custom code on the last version that showed "see lastest posts" and "view my threads" option that we used have. Any way to reactivate that function?

Does the "new posts" function not do what you are expecting? It's under the quick links menu with the three bars in the upper left.
In Advanced Search (search.php) You can type your handle in the Author field and select the First post of topics only radio button. In your case clicking Search produces the URL search.php?keywords=&terms=all&author=t ... mit=Search. It's not quite as handy as a My topics link, but you can make it a favorite in your browser if you want, which makes it even better - you can revel in the artistry of your own literary emissions with a single click, avoiding the proles' more prosaic prose. And you can do the same with anybody's topics, such as mine: search.php?keywords=&terms=all&author=R ... mit=Search.

Upper left corner, "Quick links".

"Your posts" and "New Posts" are the first two options. I missed them at first, so I just want to point out that's there.

"Your topics" would be great if that can be added.

Is anyone else being asked to re-validate cookies every few days? I'm using Firefox 77.0.1. on Win7 and a few times a week the website reminds me of the importance of cookies and asks me to accept. It's not a problem in my view, and could be a local browser setting I guess, I just wanted to point it out.

Edit: The fact that other websites do not ask me this is probably an indicator that it's not the browser.

I get the reminder about cookies every couple days. I'm on a Mac using Safari, if that matters.

if this is the general website complaint board, consider this: attempted login--accidentally hit "enter" instead of "shift"---did this once--thereafter, all (correct) login entries faile because of "too many login attempts" !!!!! ----tou ought to have a little more tolerance----mike (101200)
