Welcome to the new site
Posted 09 March 2003 - 04:05 PM
Some things are not finished off yet, such as Polls, Email notification and I have not transferred any attachments yet.
I'm also going to move some posts around into the correct forums.
I will be doing this over this week, hopefully.
If you were a member of the old forum, you should have recieved your username & password via email now, login with those details.
If not email me and I'll send them again firstname.lastname@example.org
As you might have noticed there are now multiple forums, to try to keep topics in some sort of order. Please try to pick the correct forum for your post.
Any bugs (or changes) that you find please email me. I do have the source for the forum so I can do smal fixes and modifications if anyone wants anything.
One feature I will explain, and thats the edit post feature. Once you have posted a post you have 5 minutes to be able to edit it (with a 'edit button' at the top of the post, that will appear after you post). After that you cant edit your post. I thought this was a compromise to the request a while ago about this.

Like the new site. Nice Work.
P.S. A shame you had to miss many days skiing to set it up. The rest of us had fun.... Apart from Joe who had the squits....

I do like this new forum, it has a very professional feel to it. And lots of new features too.
Just one question though: Do I really have to log in every time I surf the forum? Is it not possible for it automatically log me in? Is there some user preferences I can set up that will do this?

When you login, there is a box to say 'Remember Me?' ... make sure its checked as 'yes'
Also, you will need cookies enabled.
Then it should remeber you... as long as you dont click 'Log Out' at the top
If its still a problem... give me a shout.

Now I see....
You are loggin in on the front page at the top.
I was using the other login...
If you logout (at the top) and then go to the front page. There should be a link called 'Log In | Register' at the top. Click 'Log in'
Login using that page, and there is a 'Remember me' box there.
That flag seems to have been left off the main page.... I'll try to put it on ASAP.

It may be essential to you add a new post to the site soon. One of the first things that I saw was your name on the hall of fame followed by 666.
I like the color scheme, and will definitely have to get used to the new look and feel.

Dont worry Stu & Cleve... I'm not thinking of charging
I'm only going to charge for my Function editor, and only when its fully complete.
Is the date/time posted with each message the local time of the sender? Is there a way to make this universal time (what's the proper term? "zulu time"???) so that the sequence of posts is consistent?
The posts are timestamped with a GMT time.
This can be changed by you. If you go into your control link (at the top right) for this site, you can enter a time offset from GMT. This will display the time in your timezone then.
It should not be effecting the order of any new posts. Some of the old posts (ones that have many replies) are a bit out of seq, becuase the old forum did not use time as a sort. It sorted them on position of where the user posted them within the forum.
