Welcome to the NEW Forum
Good morning everyone, it's been a long weekend and I'm still nowhere near finished!
However welcome to the new forum software, this is a MAJOR update and replaces everything the site ran on before.
For this reason, the initial iteration is not complete, there is a lot I don't like and I am continuing to work on fixing the issues. Please post questions or issues here and I will try to address all of them.
However, there are a lot of new features and you should have all your Private Messages! I will address all this in a future update but the highlights are:
- New Editor (Ignore the grey font for the moment I've only just noticed that!)
- I have just realised how to use it! If you want to format either highlight the text you want to change and a little popup appears with otpions. Or highlight a chunk and click the little mark in the left hand side. This then gives you full editing options such as lists.
- You can embed Youtube etc. much easier
- You can subscribe to lots of different things.
- You can unsubscribe to lots of different things!
- You can set your home page to either categories (forums) or the recent discussions view.
- It's also mobile friendly at last!
Things I don't like:
- Editor font colour.
- Default avatars. - I will work on restoring your old ones, however, if you have the original please upload it again as this software uses bigger avatars by default so the old ones won't be as clear when used in their larger size. I am working on changing the default avatars to a more subdued set of images!
- The main categories (forums) layout is very crowded and unclear.
- Some of the code from the previous site doesn't currently work in posts.
- The general design needs a lot of work.
- There seem to be a lot of "edited November -1" showing up on posts - no idea?!!?!
