Welcome, to your new home!
« on: July 24, 2012, 01:44:43 PM »

The transfer of the forums to their new home has gone well - as you can probably tell.
As far as I am aware, these boards are now completed and up and running without major issues. Please have a look around. There shouldn't be many changes at all here, but if you notice any issues or things that are different or wrong, please reply to this thread and I will take a look.

To set things off, I think that the avatars have been lost in the move.

So, welcome to the new home. If there is any way that you can think of to make this place even better, I would love to hear your suggestions.

Thanks.
CS/Iain

Margarita mondays? Looks good so far!
I don't make the rules, I just think them up and write them down.

That an Taco Tuesdays and we're set!

PS you might have to reupload your avatar photo. Minor hiccups.

Wow, that really did go smoothly!  Thanks CS.

The ņ character in my signature and personal text was converted into incomprehensible gibberish, so I had to fix that, but that's the only glitch that I've noticed from the move.

Settings have been returned to their defaults, so I've had to change some of those back to suit my preferences, but that's an observation, not a glitch.

On the subject of avatars, it would be nice if avatars could be larger, as mine doesn't look anywhere near as good shrunk down to this size as compared to other SMF forums (where the avatars can be larger).

Finally, is there any reason to have the personal gallery enabled for all users?  For example, I know that I'll never use mine, could we not have the option to deactivate it?

I have increased avatar size to 100x100.
I am afraid that the gallery is either on for everyone or off for everyone, but it shouldn't interfer too much if it is enabled and not used.

That's a better size, thanks CS  :).  I'd go larger still, but that's just me, so I won't press the point.

The gallery isn't a major issue, I just raised it in case there was an option.  I think that I was getting confused because we have a separate gallery at 40K Online which all users can view, but no personal gallery feature.

One other thing that I've noticed is that the online/offline square next to our user names has disappeared.  Any chance of getting that back?

Great work!

Any chance on having the site connected to Tapatalk? I cannot seem to get it working on that App.

This should now be done.

Hi I have notice that some links pointing to pages in the same forum are broken, and try to redirect to the old site.

Is it easy to restore the new direction of the hyperlink?
