    Welcome to the new beta site.

    Thank you for agreeing to be part of the second phase of testing.

    I hope you like it. Please note that this is a 'work in progress' and things might change in the future.

    I should make you aware that this is a new platform and there will be a few (maybe several or even more :oops:) bugs in the system. That's where you come in to help us find them and refine the forums in the next coming days, weeks, months (well, you get the idea).

    Please feel free to give your views about the restructuring, design, ease of navigation and ease of use.

    We think this platform is easier and simpler to use than the current forums, but only you can be the judge of that.

    Happy testing.

    Am in, logged in with TG and my TES login with no problems, Rosaline.

    Can I post pretty pictures here? TRIAL:

    ! Calle Cruz.jpg

    That's positive - uploaded easily from my hard disk.

    Now to try to copy from internet:

    2/2 so far!

    A screen print?


    3/3 looking good!

    Finally, a link . . .

    Jobseeking for the older candidate

    When I post we'll see if this works . . .

    Best wishes


    Meet Theo on line on the TES JobSeekers Forum, where she answers jobseeking and careers queries regularly each week.

    EDIT: yes it all worked, and I can edit too . . .

    Nice look but no Edit? And what's up with the chronology?

    Managed to get in. First hurdle crossed!

    I can edit Vince

    What's the chronology problem?

    Vince, did you have this Edit function when you posted?


    Oddly, I can post this screen clip if I'm making a new post but if I try to post a screen clip when I'm editing my post it won't let me. @TES_Rosaline

    I can edit too! Curouser and curiouser!

    But I can't see how to get an avatar :( Mine didn't move across and I can't see how to set one up!

    Perhaps it's like playing Top Trumps? Everyone gets different skills, strength and attributes!

    Right, I see it here:


    I do not see it over on Mathematics:


    Nor is there the option to open links in _blank.

    The posts seem only to go back to February of this year.

    No Opinion forum?

    Well, I can now log in AND have a text box to type in (which is an improvement to what has been happening on the 'other side'
    Now to tweak my avatar.

    Trophy points? I'd like to get me some of those
