Log In Change

My log in no longer takes me straight to listings. It has half a page of info about BH .
How do I get back to old log in? :?

What are the URL addresses of the two pages you're referencing?

The forum had an upgrade about 9 days ago and one about 16 days ago. There's several things I don't like, like the new font for quote marks. It looks like someone is watching me. Creepy.

Celia That is about the time frame for me when it happened. I use Bogleheads .org
Funny thing is--it first started in chrome browser but not in firefox.
I've deleted the auto log in and input again. Same cr...ppy page.

It's anoying to waste half a page for PR that I'm aware of. Would sure like to get back to direct log in

Just tried firefox site and it is still the old format. I prefer using chrome and would like to get it changed.

A minor point, but I preferred how the old "View Your Posts" was working. I usually click on that when I open the site.

I would click on "View Your Posts", then if not logged in you entered your login and then you see the posts. Now, I need to click Login, enter my login information, which takes me to some odd looking screen. Then click on the Bogleheads.org logo, then click on View Your Posts (which replaced Login).

When you go to the bogleheads.org page, do you see (Less...) at the end of the very top line? If so, click that word.

If you get the long version of the title text, refresh the page. Site defaults permanently to the short one-line version. Probably not the best location for a text field, but easy to get rid of. Lady Geek posted this fix and it worked for me.
