I don't know if I am the only one who is finding this a bit difficult, but when editing users profiles entering through the members list, it opens a new window which does not give you an option to use the back button.

If you use the return to forum button, the second window stays open, if you use the members list to edit a members profile again...it will open up still another window, I found myself very quickly having four, five or even ten windows open.

This encourages you to just close the second window which seems like a bad habit since using the administration link keeps it to just one window making it easy to accidentally log yourself out.

Is there something that can be done about this? I know it was sort of discussed here: http://fudforum.org/forum/index.php?t=msg&th=119473&goto=162940& ;#msg_162940
But somehow I don't think this was the intent.

If there's a reason for it, I'm baffled.

When a new forum member register to the forum, if you use manual-Admin approval of the account, you need to see and check all fields. So you must click all the pages. An improvement would be to supply the user-settings-page as a link right at the start, in the Admin approval-delete of new accounts.

I am working on a revamped version of FUDf. One of the things I will put most of my attention on will be the Administration interface, so please have a little patience.
