For some reason my forum isn't showing as mine at the  top of my list.

Also some images aren't showing even though they are in my file section....

Just went into my Forum Controls section and the section to Edit the Start page displays ONLY HTML options to edit.

Doesn't matter if I click Edit in HTML or Edit in Plain Text.

Both options show code not regular text.

Help please.......

Are you set now with the forum listing, looks to be showing on your MyForums page? Reassining yourself as the owner in Controls fixes that.

The Start Page problem should was fixed just a few days ago, I'll check on what happened.

thanks for the report ...

I was able to take ownership as you stated.....didn't know that's what it was.

I vaguely recall accidentally clicking the "Forums" icon at the top of the page when trying to hit the "My Forums" Star.

I got a message that it was already on my list but I think that's what knocked me off as Owner....

On the page where I should be able to Customize the Start Page all I see is this:

<w:IgnoreMixedContent>false</w:IgnoreMixedContent>
<w:AlwaysShowPlaceholderText>false</w:AlwaysShowPlaceholderText>
<w:DoNotPromoteQF></w:DoNotPromoteQF>

ETC, ETC, ETC......

This is only part of the editing page, but I see the same in both the "Edit in HTML" and "Edit in Plain Text"...

I can't/don't do that much HTML so I can't edit anything.

The Preview page shows with my missing images.

I just updated the start page a few days ago and it was fine.

OK, that means the fix broke. Nothing we can do until it gets fixed again, the same thing is happening to everyone.

thanks for the details ...

So does switching computers do anything? 

Seems to be an android thing.

I mainly use my desktop vs the phone.

Right now the list is as it should be.

The two images on the Start page are missing on both.

If the Start page is a Delphi broken thing, I'll just keep an eye on it....

Check the image url from the Start Page, you get

There are several problems in your Files space. Image names cannot have spaces, that gives the %20 you see in the filename above. Files must use only letters, numbers or the _ , ditto for folders in Files.  Also looks like this is in your sig space, should be in another folders in your Files

I don't understand:

"Also looks like this is in your sig space, should be in another folders in your Files."

I'm pretty sure all the images are in the same folder.

I'll work on renaming the files without spaces even though they worked previously with no problem.

When you create a sig, the system places images in the signature_images folder. Other images such as the ones used in messages or forum pages should be uploaded outside that folder. If there are lots of images they can be organized in their own folders.
