Re:New Forums

I had the same problem and am also using Win 98.

It turned out to be quite simple. This is in IE, we haven't got Netscape working yet with these forums. While in this Newbie forum I clicked on ADD to favourites, then in the box where it shows the URL I backspaced and typed in CNet Newbies. Then I went on to the Virus & Security forums, and did the same thing; renaming the address shown to Virus & Security. They are the only 2 I probably will need.

However, while in the favourites, I made a new sub folder in my FORUMS folder, called CNet, and put those 2 bookmarks in that folder.

'Works fine. I'll figure out Netscape and Opera later.

Have fun.

Hounddog, Pat Is Right !

<b>As we talked about previously:</b>

Visit the forum/page of your choice,(each forum should have a different URL in the address bar at the top of your Internet Explorer window) click on 'Favorites' in the upper left, choose 'Add to Favorites', create the name that you want the link to be and make sure it's different from the last one, then click on OK.

I've saved a separate link to each one of the forums that I frequent. Here are a couple of direct links. You'll see they are slightly different with different 'forumID' listings.

Computer Newbies

Computer Help

Hope this helps, too.
