Forum Upgrade!

FORUM UPGRADE!

Hopefully, you have noticed a bit of a difference... The forums have been updated to the latest version of the forum software, and I have moved us to a new server.

I hope we have left behind some of our bugs, such as the dreaded 'from' error that has plagues is unexplicably in the past.

It may run a bit slow for a day or so while I run clean-up tasks from the admin controls to fix broken links and such, but if you have lost something because it has moved, notice any problems, or have any suggestions please let me know in this thread!

I haven't started on a forum theme yet, but will make it a priority as soon as we are settled.

Cheers!

Smilies and avatars are down. Also, will we be able to switch back to the Phoenix skin? I looked and didn't see that option.

I'm working on that at the moment... And unfortunately I might have to remake the dark skin; I need to check how badly messed up it is.

Patience, padawan. ;)

The new default theme will probably be a dark one... I've started work on it today, but don't hold your breath, like. :p

I likes all the added stuff in the quick reply box.

But still, a lot of stuff to get used to. :p

I don't like how your old status disappears when you create a new one.

Okay, I have two complaints/suggestions relating to links. One, it would be nice if clicking a topic in the board index took you to the last unread post like it used to instead of the beginning of the thread. Second, the link to the forum index needs to be made more prominent or something. I keep clicking the "home" button, thinking it's going to take me to the index. Instead it takes me to the website.

The green Forum button will take you to the Index.

I can change the name of the link to the home page... Clicking the header image will also take you back to the forum index.

As for viewing the list of topics...

There is a 'last post' link at the end of the row... and when there are new posts there is an orange arrow at the start of the row that will take you to the first unread post.

You could always right click then open in new window... ;):p

Something I noticed, which isn't really too big a deal. I went in to update my signature, and when I did, everything was in HTML. Which I thought was really cool, cause I figured we could just use that now, but when I updated (using HTML), it didn't work. So all I had to do was change it all to BB code, and it was good. Just threw me off for a second. Only a second. :p

Do you not have Firefox? You can middle click for a new tab. If not, then your work sucks! :p
