How do you do that? Every time you post one of the POTD references early in the morning, the latest I can see is yesterday's. Right now it's showing Nov. 17.

Hi Ted,

I always mouse click on the "Photo Contest" tab on the toolbar at the top of the screen.

You need to change themes, Ted. My theme (a much brighter one) shows a whole set of different areas to choose from.

Congratulations, Steve!!

Hi Ted,
I now better understand what the problem is and Gary is correct, as I too use the brighter theme which shows a total different screen.- It, by the way, is much easier on the eyes.

Well thanks guys, for letting me know! I wouldn't have even known if not for your post. When I opened the site today it still showed a previous POTD picture.

I just decided to enter it on a whim. I rarely enter anything.

Thanks, Gary and Zig. I had assumed that the only difference in the themes was the color.

But it is very odd that if you use the dark theme and navigate to the POTD page at 6:30 am, you only see yesterday's photo. Not just today - every time Zig has posted a POTD note when an Oly DSLR was used.

I just found out that that's from using the dark theme - see above.
