    Yes, we know everything has changed. But it's not possible to go through everything and see little problems, so yes, you the user is now our lab rat.

    Please use the forum as you normally would and report back anything you don't like. We'll fix issues as we find them.

    Many thanks for your patience.

    Noticed the table format code previously used isn’t working here. Is there new code for this forum? For example see my SEFTA Winter League post in results board.

    There will be a new table code being installed. We've got an exact replica of the other custom code we used on the other forum lined up. Once we know we're here for good we'll get that updated.

    See if you can load up a new one. Not sure why yours hasn't made it. Push comes to shove I can grab it from the old site, but it would be good to know if it's working for you to start with :)

    Comes up with this error :-
    Please provide an image whose longer side is no more than twice the length of its shorter side.
    May be a size issue noticed on Maddog his avatar if you click on it the image shown is moving and the one that is showing on the forum is zoomed in and not moving ???not really an important issue at the moment

    Considering the upgrade, great job as it’s all working well for me.

    I would however prefer a different font for message content, how can I change it to a more modern font?

    :D I wondered how long it would take.

    There's a whole load of new toys to play with. So once we know we're staying we'll open up the toy cupboard :D

    Media/pictures from albums not yet copied over? Appreciate this may be low priority, though for old threads where I've used the forum to host the pics they're now not there.

    Media will be coming. We need to install an add-on for that, which is no great shakes, but just isn't standard.

    We'll be looking at a slightly different theme and see what the font options are. Legibility is important on these things so you can find what you want and read it easily.

    well signed in on the site with no problem and put a new profile picture on
    that all worked well looks very good up to now yes you will get problems to start with
    but like you said these things take time to get sorted out so all should be fine in the end
    nice one admin
