It would be nice to have the option of deleting ones own post. Sometimes after i post, I don't like said post all that much..........

Not a bug but a suggestion. In a persons profile page can you add a box to add someone's Instagram page? I'm one who doesn't use FB and I don't add content to Twitter but I use Instagram often.

If you upgrade to a supporting membership, you can (it gets rid of the ads too).

Is there a way to select a particular member and see their posts?
Click the member's name and you'll see "messages" - give that a click, Note you can also follow that member and you'll see their posts on your newsfeed (under the What's New menu).

I added a place for it under the Website option. I can't really see how to add it to the Identities location (I didn't write the software, so I'm somewhat limited as to what I can do).

Update, I figured out how to get it to the right location.

I already don't have any ads...........
There's not a lot, but there should be an amazon ad at the top of the main forums area, an ad for the supporting membership about the forums, and - when there's a side bar - an ad for the AF book. I try to keep them to a minimum, but they are necessary as this site looks like it's going to use a LOT of server resources and those are never free :)

I am more interested in seeing a file containing their photos. The messages option just shows all messages whether the members original or just a comment on another post. For example, have a “Photos” selection on their page where “messages” is. Photos would open up a page of the photos they have posted. Maybe something the program is not capable of; just a thought. Thanks!!

I think there's an Album add-on that we might install in the near future that should do what you're asking. It may be a supporting member option, but you're already there :) (Thank you). I do like the idea quite a bit. There may also be a plug-in I can find.

Not a bug, but would love to see where people are from in their profile next to the post.

I'm a little bit lost and frustrated. When I reply to a picture in the BIF thread , I end up at a different place in the thread and have to find the last picture I commented to again. Is it possible that the comments are connected just under the picture it belongs to? I would be much easier to follow. Maybe have a look to http://fotocommunity.com to see what I mean. Just a suggestion. Greetings from Germany.

As a standard message board, this format doesn't work like that. All posts are in-line by date, no other way to do it. The link you provided looks more like an "album" or photo sharing site. Best bet in this case is to use the little "reply" link at the bottom of the message that has the image. That will allow you to reply and it will include the image too so your comments are with the right pic.

Looks like they're having some formatting trouble in the thread linked below (see page 2). Unsure if user error or forum bug.

@Steve. I finally got around to doing something with my profile status and noticed that it won't allow you to publish more than 490 words, which under normal circumstances, wouldn't be too bad, but that figure includes all keystrokes - spaces, commas, etc.. The 139 words I wanted to use got gobbled up in the 490 "grammar" count. On my calculations, I would have required a "grammar" count of approximately 1,500 to say what I wanted to say. :)

No, this is not something that is dramatically worrying, but I thought I should bring it to your attention. :)

I agree, Oztours. Someone posted a critique on one of my photos on my profile and I could not respond the way I needed to. After several revisions, I finally gave up and just said thank you.
