  • Thanks J! Seems there's no way to reply to your comment on my wall? Or have I forgotten how?
  • How do you put that icon (lightening bolt) at the beginning of the title of your emails?
  • I am looking to do some updates to my site, and I would like to engage someone for that task. Please contact me at your soonest for a call or zoom session. 571-244-1902
  • Hi JFarrow,

    I have a 2.0 that I had a java developed years ago for to make it responsive. The only problem is that we're image intensive, and nested replies start hiding part and then all of the images therein. Here's a discussion with a few examples::

    Sometimes 90% of the image is hidden.

    We have to stay with nested comments and replies. Can the code be changed so that doesn't happen?

    I'm moving to 3.0 but want to keep the current site, at least until 3.0 is about as fast as my 2.0.
