Forum Upgrade

We’ve just upgraded the forums to version 2.0.1 and I’m afraid a few things will have changed a little … any problems, please let us know.
(“Chat” has gone for now as the current version of Chat doesn’t work with the current version of SMF)
((And we had to upgrade SMF to get the new security fixes))

Check your email :slight_smile:

So this is why the site was under-maintenance. I like the new notification system, although it did at first bombard me with lots of notifications.
Has the homepage been redesigned? Was kinda weird at first, but it looks good!

What else has been done? :stuck_out_tongue:

You may as well go ahead and merge the other thread I just made with this one. Site looks good! Love the new notification system.

Done :slight_smile:

Chat is back :slight_smile:

I’ve found a few bugs with the forum which I think MP may want to sort. The first being a rather long “quick reply” text box. It’s the same for both Firefox & Chrome, but it could just be me.

The second one, is that, when you post a “youtube” link, there are two videos displayed from one link. Both different widths.

Can’t say I’ve noticed the your first issue … Is anyone else getting an extended reply box ?

But I have noticed the double youtube video thing … probably a bug in the new version, that may be fixed in the next.

It can be avoided if you don’t surround the address with url tags before posting… not ideal, but there you go

At the end of the day, the video isn’t hosted here so it’s not taking up any extra space :slight_smile:

Just to prove it can be done …

Hmm… I’ll have a look at the forum on the Win box later on just to check.

Ahhh … I see … it’s the “Quick Reply” box … Yes I’m getting it too, just use the normal reply box for now then … till it can be looked at :slight_smile:

Ah, it’s not just me then. That’s fine. I’ll use it, as it doesn’t bother me.

Ok, how’s quick reply look now?

Yep that’s better, although I need to drag the box to enlarge it a little.
