What preference was it? Your settings looked default when I checked them.
Under board preferences I had set the board style to mtheme. within that theme there was not option to get back to the user control panel. It was great on my blackberry but not desirable on my desktop
When I got home I logged out of the forum. When I did the page defaulted back to tech green. I logged back in. When I did tech green still be the format for about a second, then switch to mtheme. I logged back out, then back in and quickly clicked the user control panel before it switched to mtheme. Doing so allowed me to get to the user control panel page in mtheme. It appears that in the default mtheme forum page view there is no link to the user conttrol panel - not that I could find anyway.
