Forum Upgrade
« on: June 29, 2011, 22:05 »
You will probably have noticed a different look to PC Pals.  This is due to the forum software being upgraded to the latest version, SMF 2.0.

We also thought we'd take the opportunity to give the forum a lick of paint, which we hope you will like.

Whilst we believe everything to be ship shape, and running as it should, please let us know if you find any errors or anomalies while you are browsing the forums, and we will do out best to rectify them.

The forum works in much the same way as before, but if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.

My thanks to Sam for his expertise in getting the new board up and running with minimum downtime.

We hope you enjoy the new PC Pals!  :thumb:
Many thanks to all our members, who have made PC Pals such an outstanding success!   :thumb:

Further to the above, you may need to refresh the PC Pals cookie, if stored in your browser, should you experience logging in problems, and you may wish to reconfigure your Profile, as there are some additional features, such as the WYSIWYG editor.

Phew!  I've only just been able to log in (both here and next door), after clearing my cache.  This is likely to come as a relief to Simon especially, as he's been receiving enquiring texts from some weirdo with a number he didn't recognise.   ;)

Can anyone tell me where PC-Pals has gone, please?  Oh, hang on... is that Sam I see putting away his Marigolds and Mr Sheen?

Yes, look out for a newsletter this evening.  We just wanted to make sure everything was working first!  ;)

On a day when so many people are on strike, PC-Pals is looking to make sure everything is working.  Typical!

Ermm...  the "Show unread posts" facility isn't working properly for me (Firefox 5.0).  Also, some posts display BBCode verbatim, rather than render it.  Here's an example.

the later is a result of the new WYSIWYG editor - not much we can do about that without allowing other tags.

The previous, I'm unsure about..  I haven't looked at the site with Firefox 5 - but that shouldn't be browser dependent I didn't think. I'll have a look.
