In your User CP under Other Edit Options there is a setting for privacy. Try setting yours to "invisible". I think this will disable that view. Mindi, please correct me if I'm wrong.
Yes I believe that's the way that works as it won't show you to regular users that you are even online.

Well, I guess that what I want isn't possible by default: Allow others to see if I'm browsing the same forum as they are by listing my name in there, too, but not enabling them to see what I do ("plays Hexxagon - AGAIN!") from my user page. Not that I'm paranoid about it. It probably is an on or off, all or nothing, with this, but that's not an issue for me, don't worry about it.

Attachment 6657

Also, is it possible to attach images AND show them at full size, somehow, instead of just as a preview pic? Or do you really need to link to an offsite image for that?
Sure you can but you need to use the insert image button as well as the attachment procedure as the only reason you are seeing the thumbnail is because it recognizes the attachment as an image and wants to show a preview.

Example:

Also, if your picture is wider than what we think is appropriate for the forum, it will resize it within the window and allow you to click on it in order to see the full image.

Below, the first picture is done as just the attach button. You will se it only shows it as the thumnail version. The second one is done with the image button and you see it at full size. I uploaded a larger version and put it as the 3rd pic and you will see that it's been resized.

Default User ctrl panel/ user notifications

In the User notifications panel, I have a notification for 5 "new private messages". BTW, these are just copies of some message I've sent & tracked. But how can I delete these notifications ? I don't see any link/button for this...

When viewing your messages, click on the white check box to the right of the message for each you'd like to delete. Then scroll down to the bottom of the list and you'll see a pull down menu for the action you'd like to take on the selected messages (I think the default is "move to folder"). Choose delete messages, then okay.

I would really love to do that, but... there is no check box
Moreover, if I open one of the messages, check the "delete" checkbox at the very bottom of the message, then click the "delete" button near the checkbox... the message still shows

Try going one step further and click on "New Private Messages" in the blue bar. That should take you to the page with the check boxes. And thank you for the screen shot; that goes a long way to helping see what you see!

Haaaa, almost true !

BTW, clicking on this link takes me to the Private Messages In Folder while the messages shown on the screen are "sent messages". But now I've just deleted all my "sent items" and the screen is now clean.

Thanks for the tip & your patience !
