new server
« on: Sep 18, 2014, 10:04:39 »
This is my second attempt to report a coiple of things which are not quite right.

The header is not rendering correctly for me - I run both Opera and Firefox on various Linux boxes all running Mint 17 so it probably isn't a browser specific thing.
I get the text (login and select recent superimposed on the graphic on the LEFT of the screen which makes it unreadable. The header is strange on the right too.

I cannot upload a jpg screenshot to show the problem as I get a message attachment database unwriteable. I think there is a permissions problem.

I expected the change to flag up some issues, it would have been good to have had some notice that the site was going to be down for a couple of days, in terms of issues . . the menu bar has disappeared at top of the page, the shoutbox has vanished, the forum home page seems to have turned upside down i.e. the non members section is now at the top and the members section is at the bottom, the main writing as per Scotty's post is over written at the right hand side with Simple Machines logo and on the left everything is overwritten, also the login box is missing . . I dont doubt there will be more issues but thats a starter for ten.
It's better to burn out than to fade away . . .

also the link for new posts is now jumbled up in all the overwritten gunk on the left.

The shoutbox needs to be better to compete with the fb page and bring more folk back here  :cog:

I have taken the liberty to try out a new plugin for the forum , this adds a feature where you can mention people on a post with the @ symbol  e.g.

@Ashley @hsrwannabe  :)

this will then show as a mention in your profile , so now if you want somebody to come read your post then just mention em , the mention also auto completes the user name so you need to know the first character or so ..


I think this will help as like Facebook it makes you aware of posts that mention you and lets you make people aware of a post you want them to see :)

If you look at your member profile i think it can also be set to email you to say you have been mentioned.

cheers

Bill

@Bill can you make the shoutbox a little shorter or make it so the most recent reply/post is at the bottom and the script scroll upwards. Now the shoutbox is longer I have to keep scrolling up and down the page to type then read the latest reply (yeah I know Bill some peeps are never happy LOL)  ;D
