    Joe for some reason I can't post on these threads: http://www.black-sabbath.com/vb/node/645668 , http://www.black-sabbath.com/vb/node/645706 and I have posted on them before, and possibly there are more I can't access, that I haven't accessed yet.

    When I try to access it, it says: Sorry you are not authorized to view this page. Please try logging in or logging in as a different user Login or send a message to the admin.

    Was just wondering, thanks for getting back to me.

    I just found where my friends list is, it's in my profile and says subscribers instead of Friends and Contacts.

    Try it now. Your user group ("Regular Users") was not set to use that feature. I turned it on, you should be able to see it now.
    I have it now Joe, thank you. Just one more question, all my thanks from the previous forum set up are gone now, they weren't transferred over?

    Not that it matters, just wondering.

    Thank you Joe, on my phone I can see it, not on my computer like Kilo, I’ll check tomorrow when I log in on my computer and let you know.

    The snappy is largely due to the fact that I upgraded PHP from 5.2 to 7.4. One of the big deals with PHP 7 is a speed increase. Also, the current version of vBulletin helped. A lot of the third party plugins and stuff could have been slowing things down. This is a mostly vanilla forum installation at this point.
