    @dimopoulos When I tell you this update is EVERYTHING!!! I was work at this morning when I first logged in to see the new site and I was so disappointed because there were so many kinks. I thought it was gonna stay like that. But now I got home and wow the site interface and updates are SO CLEAN and well run. Thank you for these well needed updates and features! I see true growth and expansion for this forum in the future!

    Do you mind asking your friend to request a new password? The firewall was blocking the emails :/

    @dimopoulos everyte I leave the Internet browser and use an app on my phone or view another webpage I come back to the forum and have to sign in again (despite having the "keep me logged in" button checked.

    I view from my phone.

    Is there something I can do to fix this?

    @LovelyLouboutin I have not experienced this either on the iPad or an android tabled. It could be something related to your phone but I will check the logs anyway to make sure that it is not something on this end.

    Is there a way to see most recent posts from any board a la the "current" tab in the app? I sure loved that. Best way to see what's news on the forum throughout.

    I think you are getting the message because you were trying to use the old LHCF app on your phone or tablet to access the site. I got the same message but from what I recall from a previous admin post, the app is no longer going to be working or supported after the conversion to the new website platform. I think we now have to use our internet browser to access the new mobile friendly website.

    I'm experiencing the same problem on my iPhone

    ETA: The only way I was able to get this to work was to download Chrome on my iPad and iPhone. Now my password is being retained and I'm not having to re-enter it every time. The only downside is that I can't add a Chrome bookmark directly onto my home screen, but it's probably not a big deal since I'll probably only use Chrome to access LHCF. HTH!

    @4mia You will have to use your browser on your galaxy to access the forum. The app we had is no longer valid i.e. does not connect to our forum.

    I like the upgraded forum and as an app user it works better on my phone than I anticipated but I still miss the app. The things I miss the most from the app are

    -- the stickies were a separate tab so I didn't have to scroll past them all the time. They take up a lot of screen space. Is there a way to mimic this with the web page?

    -- more seemed to fit on a page with the app even though the font was larger and easier to read

    -- on the app "pages" seemed to load faster.

    Are there any plans to have an app again in the future? I would even be willing to pay for an app

    I figured. It was a good decision to post that. I think members appreciate being kept in the loop.

    @dimopoulos my friend is still having trouble.
    she said:
    "in order to complete your registration at Long Hair Care Forum, you need to confirm your account by following the link below."
    I click the link and it says it cannot confirm.

    She's not receiving the email.
