Thank you. All is well, I got my post up after the required 5. I noticed you moved this to feedback. Since you did, I thought I would let the moderators and site admins know that the screen presented to me was telling me that VB code needed to be disabled. It didn't mention anything about requiring 5 posts to put a message up in the advertising board. The comment specifically said to disable VB. I did. I disabled all bells and whistles in my profile. Bare bones setup. I logged off and then back on. The VB enabled icon was still there in the lower left corner.
If there are specific boards that are inaccesible by newbies, if it's doable, you might change the message at the top of the page to read something different.
Thanks for the quick input when I was first posting.
