    That's a cool way to start a Monday morning - come to Mal's to pick up my Batch orders, only to find it's all changed! LOL! I've obviously not been paying attention, so apologies, but:

    Can someone point me in the direction of Batch orders please? I've taken orders over the weekend and I'd like to process the payment

    Thank you

    Nothing has changed in the shopping cart admin areas, only the look of the login page. Batch orders is still in the same place. I supose the look of "Old style" Admin has been updated a bit on some of there servers.

    But I no longer have a link to the admin area. LOL! I arrived via my old bookmark, I'm not sure what to do. Would it help me if you sent me the address of the admin page?

    I only have links to;
    on the top menu bar
    * My Account
    * Forums
    * Support
    * Log Out

    on the left bar
    overview and billing

    and on the right
    I might also like (!) to create a new cart
    or add an existing cart

    then announcements
    then forum topics....

    I know it's probably right in front of my eyes, I'll go drink more coffee etc.
    but please give me a clue, where's Batch orders etc.?

    You've logged in using your old Billing ID instead of your Shopping cart username (and its password).

    In the past there were three types of account:

    1. Shopping cart accounts
    2. Billing accounts - they were used to manage Premium fees to me
    3. Forum accounts

    Types 2 an 3 have now been merged into one; a My Account. It should be simpler.

    Although we want to encourage people to use their email address to login to their My Account, in practice the old Billing account IDs still work.

    If you don't know your Shopping Cart username then you will be able to see it in your My Account on the opening page, it is in the list of shopping cart account(s).

    I don't find it simpler just confusing
