  • It's because of an effort to help the forums to pay their way by adding a new column to the right.  It shouldn't really affect images posted here too much though because that is also determined by the size of screen each user has.  Remember a growing number of our members now access the forums via their iPads and tablet devices and even smartphones which often have very small screens.

     

    In addition to the physical size of the user's screen, the resolution in which they are viewing is also a factor in what size various object appear to be. 

    So, making an image fit the size message box on your screen does not mean it will fit on anybody else's computer.

    However, if you all say that you don't like the two-column format in the forums, we can change it back to how it was.  I rather not, because we are terribly poor with a mounting pile of bills but if that 's what you want, just say so.

    Hugs, Katie   x

  • Column widths have just been reduced over the past week in the forums, which means that images that were carefully sized to fit the width of the message box are now cut down on one side - also carefully crafted tables have been ruined formatting wise entailing a lot of work to re-adjust them.

  • Huzzah!  The forum moderators problem is solved.  Sorry it too a while for the develoopers to fix it but it's done now and you should all have full forum moderator privileges again.  Still working on a number of other items.

    On the up side, I'm hoping to be able to make an exciting announcement about some new toys and features related to our chat rooms at any moment!!

  • Multiple PM's don't work properly, typing in a person's user name to add to the list works in a hit and miss fashion, some user names are simply not recognised and they cannot be added to the list of names to receive the mail shot, meaning every single person who cannot be added has to be PM'd separately.

  • Still not able to post a picture directly to the home page - despite there being a button for 'Add Photo' when you attempt to do so.  You can get around this by posting the picture in an album - and then it will show up on the front page - but it should work as stated.

  • Yes, the Forum Moderator badges have disappeared from all the mods' profiles.  That is not a bug per se, but rather, because we bought some new forum software recently, which does not have a link to the badges software.  In order to reinstate the badges, we would have to pay a programmer to write some code to link the two together.

    I'll talk to some of our developer about this and try to get an idea of the cost.

    Also, I have checked Samantha's account and she is still the moderator of the Role Play forum, so she should have full access.  However, that's obviously not the case so I'll have to talk to the forum developers to find out what's happened there.  Do any other forum mods have the same problem or is it just Samantha?

    Hugs, Katie   x

  • 1. Chat rooms now display in a windowed mode rather than full screen mode like they did immediately after the upgrade

    2. Other problem as discussed in PM

    3. HTML code doesn't work correctly when you try and insert special codes in forum messages

    4. URL code does not work correctly in forum messages

    5. Left click in the right hand pane in the Chat Room freezes the Chat Room

  • Hi Katie,
    I've noticed that if you edit a post you lose all the paragraph formatting, which is just a little bit narky. You have to go through and re-enter all the paragraph breaks or else it just comes out in one big block.
    Sorry for being a fussy cow :)

  • I seem to have noticed another issue. When I add a new picture and it pops up on the main wall, all of the comments from the last three or four pictures added come along with it.

  • Sorry, but one more thing Katie - the automatic signature addition which is generally added to the bottom of forum posts seems to have gone AWOL as well.
