Well no luck getting to the other account yet... It's asking me to verify the account again when trying the old login. It sends an email, I verify and click the link. Which it then asks me to input a new password. After clicking save, it shows in the attached image.
So I ripped the lower steps out, beefed up the understructure (originally done with treated lumber) and commenced to replace the steps with new cedar boards, this time varnished with several coats of 'Innovative' Wood Guard "no slip" coating. So yea - I'm tuned into 2x4's and 2x6's lately.
I also took my belt sander to a couple of boards I'm not going to replace, to verify the underlying wood was still close to the "new" color with all the dirt sanded off (which it is), so when I get all the steps I'm going to replace in place, I'll sand the rest of the steps down and seal them with the same wood guard.
However, the project is going slower than planned because when the weather is this nice, I wanna go RIDE!
(But when it's all done, I'll too vanquish some stress by burning the scrap..)
Well, what would have taken a week in a younger man's body finally wrapped up after 3 months.. which included 10 days in the hospital, surgery, recovery, getting the hardware, and "waiting for the paint to dry" (always my favorite excuse for goofing off..).
After 20 years I finally crafted and installed the stair banisters (the one on the right was no biggie, but the one on the left was maddening - worse than the stair steps themselves - as noted no two of those are alike and there's no right angles on most of the ends - where that banister has NO right angles, at all, anywhere, and had to be custom cut from a single 2x12 with 6" handsaws, hand-planes and wood-rasps.. "file to shape, sand to fit, pound to set, paint to match".
I put all that off because I knew it was gonna be a bltch..
And then, finally build and install the "stuff shelf" (that's where you put "stuff" down that you're carrying so you can unlock the door), that I put off for two decades also. It's also structural - it braces the end post to stabilize it so the banister doesn't wobble (much). My high school geometry teacher would be proud of the way I applied "hidden" angular stresses to "buttress a flying bridge span". It only took me twenty years to figure it out.
Radu81, the wife let her Italian out on me for taking so long to do it - she really has no appreciation for just how complicated it was and how difficult it would be to make it look simple and straight-forward. She hated the shelf idea until I reminded her she was the one who thought it would be nice to have 20 years ago (she denies - [sigh]), and then saw it installed and changed her mind.. Now she like it.. (I can't wait until she tells her friends it was her idea all along..)
So now comes the hard part - putting all the tools, saws, drills, benches, extra hardware, nuts, bolts, washers, varnishes and brushes away.. (mainly because it's going to force me to clean up the garage first, which sounds like a "winter project" doesn't it? )
badmonkey - as I mentioned earlier, I measure twice, cut once, and toss it in the pile as "practice", so I have lots and lots of scrap to burn too!
The problem is that the latest versions of the addon 1.0.7 and 1.0.8 use the latest V3 Fancybox library, and its this new FB library that no longer supported all the options of the previous V2 library.

Can no one explain to me how I can add the three missing options in the settings afterwards? Maybe by copying certain parts from code pages of an older version and pasting them on the relevant pages of the current version? Would that work? If so, what exactly would I have to copy? I still have the zip file of 1.06 here or I would have to download 1.07 for this from somewhere.

Hello! I'm a little late and have only just updated to 1.08. However, three options are now missing in the settings. I have outlined them in red in the attached picture. How can I add them now? Above all, I miss the "position navigation buttons". These are now at the top right of the display and look a bit strange when using a laptop, and clicking on them up there is a bit awkward.
Don't let you kids swim in that river ... just sayin !
BTW, Spuds.. ever since you changed your Avatar, every time I see one of your posts I get this David Bromberg song playing in the back of my mind.. (which is OK, since the song is hilarious.. except it eats up 15 minutes of otherwise productive time, unless it starts looping, which then blows the whole day..)
