Under user name Where it says “messages” are you supposed to be able to click on messages and then see the members posts ?

I understood your curiosity. Some forums have a link that you can click to see all the member's posts from their profile. I can't recall if the old software here did or not, but I remember using it on some other forums a few times.

How do I get on the member map? I have my location in my profile.
Click on your user name at the upper right of the page, select 'account details' from the drop down list. Then when in that page, select 'preferences' from the list on the left of the page. Double check that everything is correct, ( I just noticed my time zone was incorrect), and under 'privacy options' make sure you haven't checked the box to 'opt out of Member Map'.

Click on Members and the drop down titled "Member Map."
You should get a pop-up box asking if your current location can be shared. Check yes.
Done.

If you have a pop-up blocker on or some brands of software protection, then this is obviously not going to work.

It's not the most accurate map but close. For example, it insists on putting me on a farm several miles from where I live.
Eric - If you are still in Ivins, I don't see you.

CW, I'm now in Tupelo, MS and I did get the pop up, and clicked allow, but forgot to refresh the page. I show up now in my correct location.

Thanks guys. I get the map but no pop-up box. I don't think I have any blocker software, I sure do get plenty of pop-ups on other sites.
No worries, not that important anyways.

As far as I can tell I don’t show up on the map.
There is someone on the map called Motoguy that appears to live pretty close to me but looks like he hasn’t been on the board since 2013 , I have no idea who he might be.

That's always been the way it works; even before the re-vamp. Some days I'm on the map, some days..... Thought maybe they were trying to tell me something.

Try a different browser. I've occasionally been surprised to discover that the source of my frustration with a site or link was with Chrome or Safari, but switching to the other eliminated the issue. (I'm a Mac user, so those two are my main go-to.)
