What do you think of the new forum?

Postby Arokhs Twin » Wed Aug 22, 2012 12:32 pm

I have finally got the new forum working. I have added some styles (skins) to choose from and some avatars today so if you do not like the default forum style, you can choose from 3 other designs and / or upload your own avatar. This can be changed in your user profile settings.
Comments welcome good or bad.

I don't know why the forum does not work on your phone, have you tried different styles?
I tested this current style on IE9, Firefox 3 and Chrome. Also tested on an android tablet and Nokia N5800 smartphone. I haven't tested it on apple products. What brand is your phone?

Well, I have problem - happen on few pages, few topics;
Some of the posts/topics are rendered as 100% white (with white text is almost impossible to read without selecting text). This is how it looks like, checked in newest Firefox.

Also - there is still SubSilver theme instead of board's default one for unlogged user ;)
Do not follow where the path may lead - go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.

Danger? Hah! I walk on the wild side! I laugh in the face of danger! Ha! Ha! Ha!

Thanks Shelim for finding that issue. I found the problem - it was a spammer clicking on the report post button and filling in the box with random crap. The forum software highlights reported posts in red and with the default scheme it displays it in white instead. I will see what I can do about this. I disabled the ability for guest users to be able to report topics which should stop the spammers. The antispam only stops them from posting on the forum and does not protect the 'report posts' function.

As for the profile default still being prosilver for users not logged in / guests, it was the user profile settings for guest user + user permissions not set correctly. There are a lot of permissions to set in the forum and then subpermissions etc. Missed one out which made a big mess.

PS: as you are a moderator you if see any more crop up that you notice before me, if you want you can click on moderator control panel then go to reports and any reported posts / topics and their reason for being reported will be there. You can then delete the report if the reason box is full of spam.

I haven't been around but for two minutes but I love it.

Of course, I had to switch to the Arokh theme from the default; great work recreating the colors of the previous forum.

Awesome.

Drop me an email at webmaster@arokhslair.net and I will sort it out. Or just click on the "forgot password" link and you will be emailled a password reset link then you can change your details. If you have not logged on since the software change you will have to change your password anyway. If you no longer use the email account you registered with then I can change that for you.

I got a password and changed the theme to default style and it feels "home" again :)

Great work Arokhs Twin!
