I did try to post this on the "USING THE NEW FORUMS" thread, but that thread is "sticky", whatever that means, and so my post did not appear there
It did appear, and I replied to it. Basically I said that the change password option and change signature are on the same page, so if you're seeing one you should be seeing the other.
Thank you for the replies, Mr Everard. Alas, still not all is well. The problem with the change password page, which indeed has the section for signature, is that my signature, on that page alone though not in the forum replies, appears as completely blank! Previously, about a fortnight ago, the (very!) full text of my signature would appear on the change password/change signature page. Now, when I access that page, something approximating my signature in low-level computer script does indeed appear in the signature box, but for only about four seconds. It then vanishes, leaving the signature box completely blank.
Previously, the full text of my signature remained in the box for me to edit if I wished. And I do now wish.
Further, when I go to the "About the new site" link, the "USING THE NEW FORUMS" topic is the second one listed, showing as a "Sticky" thread, with only one reply, by The_Lhc, on 03/10/2011 - 13:22. When I click on the link, The_Lhc's brief reply is indeed the only one that appears, and underneath his reply, it says "Topic locked". I do remember previously that many people had replied to your intial posting about how to use the new forums, with jocular comments about not being able to edit a contribution once someone else had replied, but I assure you, I cannot now see those other replies, I can see only your initial posting and the reply by The_Lhc on 10th March at 1:22pm. So I cannot
see either my query to you there, nor indeed your reply. If it helps at all, I have taken screen saves of the offending pages, and I could email them to enable you to see what I am seeing.
I realise that my experience as an external user may differ from what you can see from within the What HiFi computer system.
I would still like to be able to edit my existing signature ......
