Re: Wanted child's trial frame

Sorry for delay in reply. I checked this and if you are referring to the metal lens clips on the front they may just need widened with a little manual pressure. It worked for me.

The Optomshop one, the back cells take the 38mm lens, but the front cells are smaller?
Can you clarify which frame are you referring to? I'm not aware of such an issue but I can check.

What criteria do you use to keep a topic alive & at the head of the list?
A combination of usefulness, importance, laziness etc.

I have demoted the banking thread to a normal thread. Apparently they are implementing the separation of retail and investment banking.

Re: Site restored - backup from yesterday

Embed media link extension now active (simply paste the link to the youtube/tweet/etc into your post and it will automatically display in your post, as below):



and so is open links in external window by default.

Re: Site restored - backup from yesterday

There is a like/+1 type modification but it's not simple so unlikely to be implemented. I'm still looking into the extensions.

Re: Site restored - backup from yesterday

For some reason the Ad tabs don't display properly in mobile. I will look into it.

There's this https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/mod/thanks_for_posts

Which seems decent but slightly complicated.
Says its for version 3.0.x. This forum uses the latest 3.2.x

Re: Site restored - backup from yesterday

I will be adding some customisations to the forum in the next few weeks, e.g. open links in new window, embed media within posts. There are lots to choose from. For those interested, if anyone finds something useful from the list in the links below you can let me know here: https://www.phpbb.com/ext...

Re: How to reset your password if you have forgotten it

I just checked it with your details and it worked. Ignore the email you get.

So not sure why it happened. Possible misspell. I'll see if others try it and have the same issue. If anyone tries it, it wont actually reset your password, just ignore the email you get.

Re: Recent outage

Was this somehow linked to the constantly being logged out issue? I don't know. I just tried to reset my password and the forum wouldn't let me. Thankfully I remembered my old password which is how I got back in. Assuming you're 100% certain of the username/email info you put in, what was the error...
