Hope all is well now but wanted to add that a lot of people using old bookmarks report oddness, so maybe replace yours with Delphi’s home page and log in there 

https://www.delphiforums.com/

or your My Forums page which will also have you logging in.

Gunter, this is the first time I've visited Delphi in quite a while....  Lots of new stuff to get used to!  But good exercise for my brain, haha!

Gunter, I spoke too soon.  I'm back to square one with the blank pages when I click on 

'Post New' and 'Messages'.  grimacing

That's exactly what I've been doing, however, I did copy your link and saved it in faves under a new name.  

Didn't work.  Very odd.  :(

Okay Delphi Forums...
I've done everything you've suggested.  I still cannot post "New".  

Why is Delphi's IT dept having so much trouble?   If this is their way of forcing everyone to convert over to Zeta, it appears (from all the messages here) it's not going to work.  Zeta is NOT an improvement.  It's nothing more than the new guy wanting to put his "stamp" on Delphi.  Newsflash, buddy:  Just because you can, doesn't necessarily mean you should.

Please Fix this!

Odd indeed. A further step is to delete browsing history after logging out.

If possible also try a different browser as a test, that may help isolating the problem.

Always log in using https in front.

Delphi does not have a new guy... just an old guy.

lol lol lol

(Hope he's not reading this but if he is, I mean old in the sense you designed the original site so... ya know, older than a new guy :D sir)

If you are using IE make sure delphiforums.com is not on the compatibility list.

Instructions here https://www.delphiforums.com/support/cmode.htm

If you are using Edge, try another browser and make sure you do not click on anything IE says you need for delphi (it adds it to compatibility view) if that's your only other browser.

Gunter,
It's working at the moment.  I switched to chrome last night.
I just don't understand why IT has made it so difficult.  What could be done in one step, now has to be done in two or three.  flushed
