My colors changed back to that green and white and the top wording is slightly different but everything seems to work the same.

Go into Profile > Modify Profile > Look and Layout, and the first thing on the list is "change" the theme from Green Bean to something you like. I use "Concrete".
The more I understand, the less I know. Pretty soon I'll understand everything, and know nothing.

   Thanks OP,  I'm one of those people who doesn't like changes unless I'm asked,  It seems like we are loosing more and more control over our lives today,  stuff like this drives me nuts,  I turned on the The Weather Channel first thing this morning to check the local weather,  the Weather channel has a feature where you push a red button on your remote and it reads your zip and gives you your local weather.
  This morning their was one little problem,  The Weather Channel doesn't exist any more,  it's now Weather National,  and it doesn't do that.   :pissed:
  Then I go to B&B and the whole screen is changed.   :pissed:

  And if that's not bad enough,  I'm writing this post and I go to the smiley selection,  guess what,  that's mucked up too,  I friggin' give up,  Jeeze,  if it ain't broke, don't fix it.   :pissed:

  Now I preview my post and do I see smileys,  no,  I see little red friggin' X's,  where's my Absolute !

Are the 'smilies' or 'emoticons' not working anymore?   All I see are little boxes with :pissed: inside them in Moe's last post.

No more dancing bananas.....I am VEXED  >:(

I think you are right, Zammer. I think Moe needs some woods time also. Seems to be getting a bit crabby with the cabin fever.
;)
I love being out in the woods!   I like this quote from Mors Kochanski - "The more you know, the less you carry". I believe in the same creed, & think  "Knowledge & honed skills" are the best things to carry with ya when you're out in the wilds. They're the ultimate "ultralight" gear! ;)

After getting past the default look page I went in and changed to "concrete" which is what I had before.  My emoticons are there including the dancing bananas and all the rest.  Including my favorite:   :puke:

I don't get it.....I'm using 'concrete', too, but all I see in your post is boxes of printed puke and bananas.  Same as I see on the page where I go to select one myself (shrugging yellow guy)

That is over my head.  The post you just made shows the emoticons in my post doing what they are supposed to do.  ???????????

At the end of your post it says, in parenthesis, (shrugging yellow guy) ?????

Sorry to tell you, but the smileys don't show up in your post at this end.

Well, when I hit "More" under the stock smileys, all I get is a block of the names of all those extra smileys, nothing to link to. I see other people using them, but they don't show up as icons for me. :shrug: (I typed that in, just in case it worked)

I don't know what you guys are talking about.. this whole thread is full of shrugging , dancing, fishing, puking, and thumbs up smileys....   :) 

My problem is getting page not found going from the main forum list to individual threads. And I neve know if my posts will post so I have to copy them as a back up plan.

On particularly rough days when I'm sure I can't possibly endure, I like to remind myself that my track record for getting through bad days so far is 100% and that's pretty good.
