    OK, mine has had several comments, so let's try this....

    Click on Blog at the top of the forum.
    upload_2016-10-4_23-39-25.png

    Then, to the right you'll see Create Blog Post.
    upload_2016-10-4_23-39-47.png

    Click on it, then type, away. Post your pics, your vids, what have you... just keep it in check with the rules of the forum.

    Happy blogging!

    I should have came here and read your instructions first.
    Since I didn't read your instructions it seemed to work for me.
    That being said, the process I followed to make it work just coincidentally matches identically to the instructions you posted.
    haha

    Whew! LOL thank you. Glad it worked out for you. I don't know what's going on for the others that aren't having luck, but I'm sure we'll run into a few glitches here and there. Brand spankin' new!

    It's new, it's certain to have at least a few glitches along the way.
    Wasn't able to upload a pic but once that is worked out I'll add it later.
    Oh by the way....
    I can't upload pics.
    When I clicked on the photo or media buttons they only provide the option for a URL, nothing local to my machine.
    If the intent is for us to store pics externally on other sources and only link to them, then forget it, that is the way it is set.
    However if the intended setup is for it to be the exact same way as the rest of the forum, I found another glitch.
    haha

    Maybe you're status is TOO HIGH.
    Could have a bit flipped and it's set as Bronze and lower....

    I don't have the button and any of the three browsers.
    Incase it ends up making a difference, I'm on Windows 10.


    You're absolutely correct.
    Precisely why I don't use it.
    Felt obligated to test for others though.
    The down side is Microsoft is doing away with IE coming pretty soon.
    All is MS users will be forced to dig out our old favorite browsers from the past.

    To the right of post reply in threads? You don't have Upload a File?? Oh wow!! OK, what about the "More Options" button? There's a Rich Text Editor in your preferences settings that might need to be checked, if it's not already. Let me go find the exact location of that one. BRB

    OK, I've made notes and posted them up for everything that was mentioned here regarding blogs. If anything else should come up, I'll add those notes, as well. Though I may not be able to answer your questions or have an immediate fix for you, I'll certainly try.

    Thank you everyone for your patience. We'll get it worked out in one way, shape or form.

    I see the comments section defaults to placing the most recent comment at the top.
    I like it.

    It was already checked.

    Also don't have that.

    That is all beyond weird. I wonder if others have that? So you've never had these buttons?

    I MANY times just use a screenshot tool that you can size to anything. Super handy, especially in these instances.

    I'd probably add that when I see a notification across the top of the screen and click on it;
    I'd anticipate it to take me directly to the post that caused the notification.
    However it takes me to the BLOG homepage where all of them are so there is no way to know what this new post is.
    http://vapingunderground.com/threads/blogs-are-live-have-your-say.279125/
    Since it is so new there aren't that many and it was easy to look at post counts per blog and notice one that had more than before.
    But once we are all using it and there are hundreds - thousands...... there will be no way to know what post you weren't going to get to read.
    Except for the right side of the screen (Most Recent Blog Comments) provides a snippet of the post.

    Now that I know that. I'm going to set up a bot to post a new comment in the blogs every 37 seconds just so you'll go hunting for it.
    Joking.
    It was funny when I first thought it but by time I finished typing it I remembered all the hours I used to put in running a few web servers, email hosts, forums, and other things that I don't do anymore.
    haha

    OK...... so not even screenshots will post in the blogs section. Looking like at this time, a hosting site is the only way to go. I'll see if I can get more info on that, but I'm sure it won't be tonight, LOL.

    @anavidfan this will answer the question you had for photos. (for the time being)

    Considering you just change my "like" count from 666 to 667, your timing is perfect.
    Even if it's an entirely different subject.

    I'd like to be able to turn off the notifications for blog posts. I've tried my settings page and even tried unchecking everything related to blogs. At this point I can mark them read and get it to go away, until the next post, then all the posts are included in the number on the notification icon as if all were new. Hopefully this a glitch.

    Edit: since I can't edit the original. The "mark read" does seem to be taking this morning where it didn't last night. So while I do get a notification every time there is a post to blogs the number is at least accurate.

    OK, for those of you inquiring about not being able to UPLOAD pics, this was posted by one of my bosses in the comments of my test blog. (@Paratech, @anavidfan @Trixy )

    "LucidiousRage Today at 11:35 AM
    I disabled the ability to post attachments because allowing it runs the risk of someone posting something with a virus. Unfortunately the blog doesn't seem to allow restrictions on what kinds of files can be attached, so it's an all or nothing deal. Can't allow all because of possible virus files, so has to be nothing. Sorry."

    The reply is hosed.
    Type in text and hit the reply button and it does reply at the top of the replies but the text does not go away in the reply box.
