    Interesting.

    EDIT - Short version - There is now a Facebook "Like" button for TNMB threads. You may (optional) link your Facebook account with TNMB if you'd like.

    Okay, here's the deal. After installing the latest update to the vbulletin software tonight I noticed there was now the option to add "Like this thread" to the board. I thought we might as well give it a shot and see exactly how it worked. So far, it's not too invasive and seems to work pretty good.

    You now have the (OPTIONAL) ability to "link" your TNMB account with Facebook. From what I can tell, all this will do is allow you to "Like" any thread on tnmb, which will then show up with a link to that thread on your facebook wall.

    I don't believe it does anything else - yet. Verdict is still out on that. We should all be able to go about our business as usual, whether or not we're interested in linking our accounts.

    So far, from limited testing:

    1. It WON'T post anything automatically to Facebook - Only posts if you allow it to.
    2. It DOESN'T add anything to your existing tnmb profile page.
    3. You CAN remove your "like", or unlike threads you've previously "liked" on tnmb by simply reclicking the "like" button at the top of the thread.

    Please feel free to mess around with it if you get a chance by clicking the blue "Connect" button next to your username (or login fields) at the top of the page, and then clicking "Like" at the top of any threads you decide to.

    Thanks! Let me know if it works, and how it affects everything. If you have any questions, please contact tnmb user "twolfcon".

    Yeah, Chris, it's only for full threads, not every post, or the actual forum, or categories. Just the actual thread once you click on it. If that helps.

    Hey guys...I actually just logged out and the "Like" button is still there at the top left of the thread, it just asks you to log in to facebook to use it. So I'm not sure, unless it's a cache/temporary files issue why it wouldn't be showing up for paddlechris.

    Chris - do you at least see the "Connect" button up at the top next to the Login field? (Or if you're logged in, your name).

    P, just out of curiosity, do you typically keep your browsers "live" all the time, or are you always logged in? I see that indeed the facebook option is not there in either place. Once they get the other issues worked out, I'll ask them what might be going on there. All I can think of though is that both browsers need to have the temp files cleared. (But that may not be the problem at all, either??)

    As for the other two issues, the one with the dropdown menu at the top is new today, since they started working on the other issue with the edit area icons not showing up. Up until about an hour ago they were working on the site, I'm not sure if they still are or not - but I'll find out soon. Thanks!!

    I'm running IE 9.0.4 and everything is there. Logged in or out, it is still there - which is good for people like those that back-in blacked out stalker vans! LoL

    Mozilla 8 is the same - works for those two - I wonder if it's a Chrome issue.

    Anyone running Safari on the PC?

    Paddlechris...

    I'm sorry, I have no idea what this could possibly be, if not one of those weird cache/temp file issues. I'm at a loss, but will do some googling and see if I can't find anything about this.

    Travis, I'm using Chrome, and have also tried it on IE, Firefox, and Safari on PC, it shows up for all of them. I do have the latest version of each of these, which may or may not make a difference. Not sure how to help Chris out!?
