I don't know if this info might help you or someone else, but I have found many features reveal themselves only when using Internet Explorer. Like "new posts" or anything about having one's own blog.

Hi Linda,

Can you please detail the differences that you are seeing? I can not say that I have used Internet Explorer in quite some time myself (outside of testing the site when I make new changes) and want to make sure that features are available to everyone regardless of browser choice.

Thank you,

Hi Jun. Thanks for asking.

I mostly use Google Chrome. In that browser I can see "AikiBlogs" in the nav bar across the top area, and clicking it gets me to the blogs, but there is no drop-down menu. In fact, there are no drop-down menus. Here's a side-by-side comparison of what I see (I'll use "v" to indicate a drop-down menu):

In IE7: Preferences | AikiBlogs v | New Posts | Active Topics v | Search v | Quick Links v | Log Out

In Chrome: Preferences | AikiBlogs | Search | New Posts | Mark Forums Read | Open Buddy List | Log Out

In Chrome these also have no drop-down menus: Thread Tools | Search this Thread | Rate this Thread

I forget exactly what the issue was when I first joined (around May), and maybe I can't see it now because I have a blog, but I couldn't figure out how to get a blog of my own. I think it finally became apparent after I switched to IE when visiting here.

I don't think I used Firefox... Let me know if you want me to poke around for more differences, or try anything in particular.

Many thanks,
