Well we all survived at least!

The major changes have been right here to the messageboard which I’ll hope you’ll agree looks a lot cleaner and easier to read.

If you spot any post-upgrade glitches to the site please post them here or PM me.

Thanks.

Yes there was. Not really sure if they took it out in this version of the forum software or if it’s just been disabled. I’ll check it out!

Okay, thanks =) Because I think we can all agree it was pretty useful to see when our friends were online and stuff =)

The site upgrade has had a pretty major effect on how I view the site now! the site doesn’t go to the edges! Please see attachment, viewing on google chrome latest edition. Have sent you a screenshot to your inbox Cardinal

It’s definitely a change.

I now you were going for a more simplistic look and layout, but I personally liked the previous layout more. This one has a lot of white space. I like a more condensed look. Personal preference though. I also have the same thing happening Deon seems to be describing.

Function wise, everything on my end seems to be working as it should!

Just an update re: the edges. I emailed Darren and he’s explained to me that it’s intentional for the messageboard to now take up a fixed area in the centre of the website, to match the rest of the site which already had this look. So now we know! I’m getting used to it already.

Tells you how often I look at the rest of the site *whistles innocently*.. Probably should have made that connection..


And I digress, after the initial shock of change has worn off, I’m getting use to it.

Hey guys, haven’t been around for a while, been terribly busy.
About the upgrade…hmmm not really a fan of it but I’ll live with it. However, the old pm box was so stylish…I’m not forgiving for that

I’ve gotten use to the new design, but I do terribly miss the ‘Active Now’ box that use to be on the bottom of the page.

Yeah, I used that thing all time. Really handy, to see when your friends are on. And I agree with Dante, I used to love that old PM box. I couldn’t even find the new one at first.

When you say uploading a photo, are you speaking of an avatar, or directly into posts?

Ok. Make sure that your file size does not exceed the maximum/meets the minimum (it will reject it if it’s to big or too small and will tell you if it is rejected) max is 100 x 100 pixies and 100 kb, not sure of min.

Ensure it is in a valid format (.jpg, .gif or .png)

If the above are accepted by the site, it can take up to 48 hours for the site cache to update and apply this type of change. If you’re still having issues, please try to screenshot and PM me an image of the problem or provide a detailed description of what you are doing and what results you are getting.
