Re: planned server migration

And we're back. Looking at the new server specs it seems this one is more powerful, so should be faster. Let me know if anyone notices any problems, thanks.

planned server migration

The host has advised that the current server needs significant maintenance so it is best to migrate to another server.

So the site will be down from 11pm Tuesday 16th Jan 2018. Probably for 24 hours, but could be upto 48hrs.

My uploaded stuff seems have disappeared :cry:
Do you have a link to a picture you uploaded (then pasted in a thread for example)? Just curious to see what comes up when it's clicked.

Re: Email notification

I just can't deal with this new format. I can't see posts since I last visited, i dunno where I am on here. I'm sure quite a few feel/felt like that. Thing is, a lot of people don't seem to have read the upgrade notification email/post that contains this info. I only posted it on twitter/facebook, ...

Re: Missing posts

If it only happened with some posts and not others then it more likely to be a forum software glitch. I'll look into it.

Re: Notes about the new site

I will be reviewing the suggestions in a few weeks, then discussing it with the programmer. Won't be done until Jan at the earliest.

Re: Deleting a post

No, that's new and it's a default setting, but AFAIK you can leave it blank, or is that not the case?

Re: help on how to use the forum

You might need to clear your cookies/cache then visit this site again, or remove it from RoboForm perhaps. I assume when you then visit the site afresh and input your info RoboForm will then ask you what you want to do as if you were visiting the site for the first time, e.g. autocomplete etc.

Re: Notes about the new site

Michael, I assume the notification settings in your profile are correct?

Can anyone else confirm the no email notifications issue?

Re: Notes about the new site

I can't really tell the difference between the red of unread posts and blue of read posts... The yellow/grey combo of old was easier for us folk with colour 'issues' Me too. But is that how you are actually using the forum? i.e. click on a subforum heading then see the list of threads, some read so...

Re: Notes about the new site

There doesn’t seem to be an ‘occupation’ entry on the profile options. Sometimes it’s helpful to know whether a poster is an optom, DO or something else. Any chance of adding this please? Done. Click on user to see their profile. If they've filled it in, it will be there. Interests has also been re...

Re: Notes about the new site

lfl, I have changed the edit option to unlimited edits and kept deletion option to 30mins after posting. But you could just edit the whole post by deleting the content. Same as previous forum options. eagle, to get to the latest posts you need to click on the latest page number not simply the thread...
