If you doubt that I am what I say, please contact the site owner. Not through this forum, though, that will just end up in my inbox, but go to the index page of this site, http://www.upholster.com and find a contact link.

I would rather not post an email address here out of fear of getting spammed (!), but if you trust your fellow forum member Baileyuph, he can confirm that I'm the webmaster here, as I have been mailing with him regarding those awful images that appeared some time ago instead of smileys and some avatars. He also knows that I'm not a 'he'.

Besides, a Russian bot - or any bot - would not be able to post relevant answers to your question/comments.

I'm not an upholsterer. I started working with Ken 4 years ago to make his website adaptable to all sort of screen sizes.  Then Ken sold his business, and I kept on working for the new owner. We have just gone live with a new version of the site and web shop, you may have seen it. There are still some things that are not working properly, among them some page links. That is what I'm working on now, to get it corrected.

Eventually, when I get better known with the forum software, I'll create my own log-in. But this SMF software has a lousy user forum, so I never get answers to my questions. If someone here has a good grasp of the SMF forum software, then please  come forward, send me a message. ;) I could actually do with someone who could help.

Just so that you know: Ken retired 2 years ago. I'm not Ken, I'm just using his admin log-on. My name is Inger, and I am from Norway.
This forum is new to me, and I was not the one who upgraded it. If I find out where that report-span button has gone, I will of course put it back, but I don't know all the ins and outs of this forum software yet.

I spent most of the morning hunting for spam, and I'll keep an eye on it, so that I may nip it in the bud when the next lot comes in. As I said to one of you who messaged me, we seem to be having a 'Russian invasion', up to 20 new registrations every day. I can't just block anything ending in .ru, because there might be some serious ones among the spammers.

Back online. Are you still having problems?
The transition will take a while and Mike will keep the forum going. The morning I don't have to answer the phone  East Coast time (I'm in Calif.) is the day I know I'm retired. ;D
Upholster.com sold! Thanks Everybody!
I'll have the new owner Mike introduce himself here in the next few weeks. He'll being adding foam and upholstery supplies to the site. He currently owns http://www.foamorder.com
Hi Folks
I'm preparing to sell Upholster Magazine and Vista Uph Enterprises. Time to retire! Online since 1996 and I think I added the Discussion Board the next year.
A big thanks to all you regulars that formed your own community here and helped so many newbies.
I started working for an uncle Jan. 1969 in his shop and on and off for some years until I opened my own in 1976. Up until the internet upholsterers were a pretty isolated bunch. If you wanted to know what was going on "out there" you had to pry the info out of a supplies or fabric salesman.
I think it's pretty therapeutic to share about the stresses etc. of being self-employed especially when you laugh about it with you follow upholsterers.
VUE would be a great add on business or for someone who wants to work from home in their jammies. Also good for an uph supplier that carries more stuff than I do.
Here's more details:
