No, You're Not Seeing Things...

Post by Barry on Mon May 28, 2012 10:39 pm

...the Forum is undergoing some changes. You OK?

Our beloved Corsair in his infinite insanity wisdom has handed some of the Administrative keys to me to see if I can "freshen" the place up a bit. I'm still getting comfy at the moment and making a few small tweaks first, nothing too drastic just yet.

So if you see something that was here, and is now...........................................................over there, not to worry, it's not your hangover or an acid flashback that's doin' it. It's me. What a Face

Meantime have some fun with some new emoticons (smilies) I managed to add; use the drop down list to access the new categories. New ones will pop up from time to time.

Apologies in advance for any inconvenience during the implementation phase. Hope you enjoy the changes. Canada

Yup.
Small transitions as I get more comfy with the tools available.

Cheers for that Mike!
I'm still working against some dumb technical access restrictions imposed by the host organization's hierarchy (nothing to do with John or Neil I hasten to add!). At this point I cannot directly manipulate the code so I'm unable to easily make the changes I'd like.
But...working on a way around it...

Sorry again folks...still having major difficulty with the ^&%$@* point and click interface that I have to deal with. Poo in Fan

When you're used to controlling everything to do with a web site and server, it's tough to click on a third party interface and pray that it gives you what you expect to see! Most of the time it doesn't and I'm losing more than I'm gaining. Cry Sad

At some point (soon I hope) I should be able to replace the entire theme and we can all relax and "get on with it"!


p.s. For those of you using the mobile version of this site, I have zero control over it.
It is in Beta stage apparently, and being administered exclusively by Forumotion.com
At present it is Read Only, no posting available.
But you do have the option to switch to the full site.

Thanks, but please don't get too attached to anything, this stuff is likely to change again.
I am working towards a major theme change and at this stage I'm just playing with ideas.

And of course, every time I click on sumpthin' in the "control panel" I seem to lose, um, control! Poo in Fan

I really like what it looks like now - and curious to see what comes next, but I think it is an improvement as it stands currently - good job eh

I don't like that new" latest topics" thing on the left hand side of the page. Can I get rid of it?

New Features Update...

Post by Barry on Sat Jun 02, 2012 10:01 pm

I've been tinkering a bit more. Naughty

In addition to the new background colour framing the site, I added a Latest Topics scroller as well as a Translator to help our non-English speaking members feel a bit more at home.

The scroller automatically updates to show the latest 9 posts with a hyperlink to them. It is active even if not logged in, but note that the topics you visit would not be marked as having been read unless you do log in.

In addition, if you check your Profile section, you'll see a selection of flags that you are free to add to your profile. In addition it will also appear under your avatar (see mine at left).

Sheesh Graham, you were complaining about it before I finished my post about having installed it!

Ordinarily, your whim is my command. clown
But on this occasion I'm afraid this widget is not one of those individual option thingies; it's either universally on or off.

But hey, it isn't carved in stone. If the membership wants it gone I'll remove it. :ban:

edit:
Hey Graham, I've made a few minor adjustments to reduce the size of both widgets a bit. Is that any less intrusive?

Is there any way to move those things elsewhere? Like on a horizontal line with the little ad links? As is they cause a bunch of empty white space once you scroll past them.

I say leave 'em there for a week or two and see if that makes a difference. I'm not sure about it either, but I'm also happy to see stuff being tried, and feel that we owe it to the site to see if it sticks. If, in a week or so, it's not universally popular, then it will be re-visited...

.... fair enough? Admin Power Cool
