Discussion in 'BOARDANIA' started by Maljonic, Feb 26, 2007.
The message board software has been upgraded to the latest version. It's pretty much the same as before, hopefully, with a few little extras added in like the ability to have "friends" and some kind of little message system inside members' profile viewing area and some other bits and bobs in the profile bit.
It has changed colour, or rather, kept the colours and moved them around.
And logged me out... which took forever to fix because I couldn't remember my password.... I know, I'm a bad person.
Oops, I just wasted hours fixing a booboo that could have been avoided if I'd backed everything up properly after I upgraded. That'll learn me.
So has the message board been upgraded or for some reason have some old features returned with some of the old and all the links and stuff gone haywire?
Just wondering because it all looks rather strange this morning and I'm too tired to figure it out on my own...
Um. There's a bit more... white to the background, I think.
Yay, go Mal...
It should be the same but with a few extra bits in profiles, and a couple of extra options for dealing with spammers.
It looks slightly different because I had to add a new template because there were a lot of code updates applied to vBulletin since last time it was updated. I got it to look as close as possible before switching it back on but there's still a couple of tweaks to do to make it exactly the same colours as before.
It's more that when I first arrive I get told 'Welcome spiky' but when I go to post in a thread I've magically been logged out and am told I may not post etc...
As to the other stuff as I'm on during the night for everyone else the upgrade may have been happening because it looks a lot different this morning than it did yesterday.
There's still a little glitch with the front bit Terry Pratchett Unseen Message Board - Discworld Books and Literature Discussions logging you out, but the actual message board bit keeps you logged in: Discworld Discussions
I'm looking into fixing that.
I did update some of the colours to make it more like it was originally.
I like how we can follow the linked quotes now, that would be nifty in lenghty or controversial discussions...
I also like the colour scheme, it goes easy on the eyes. Yay Mal!
I noticed last night that it does something nifty with attached thumbnail images too.
And I like that the "edit"-button has been removed away from the "quote"-button...
Mal, there's something funny (HA. HA.) about the albums, I can't seem to access them from a profile, say Joculator's, when I click on it I get a message that it's my album and there are no pictures in it (there aren't in mine, there are in his...) is this another L-space issue?
How about, say, Gypsy's album?
hmmm, strange... I can access Gypsy's album fine...
Thank's for verifying my insanity Kat :bunny:
I was wondering about that... I have 2 albums (17 photos) set up in the Octarine gallery (no problems there), but my profile shows a completely different album title and only 3 photos (which I can't access)?
C.mon tell me... It's a conspiracy ain't it?
The Octarine gallery is totally separate, so that part is normal. The message board profile gallery though I'm not sure about how it's not working for yours, have you set the images to top secret or something? SO secret in fact that you aren't allowed to view them yourself?
Nice get out clause, Mal. Your guess is as good as any of mine.
When I get to the page where my album is (http://www.terrypratchettbooks.org/discworld/members/joculator-albums-day-life.html) both the links from the picture and the album title just send me to the same URL as I started from.
Can you get to the album and delete it and I'll try again. I just can't get away from the album page. I have the option of adding another album but not deleting one.
You first have to fill out form 3B to get a album deletion request form.
