    Default We're working on it

    Hi all,

    Welcome to the new setup. The care and info articles are in tatters right now. I haven't had enough time to transfer the updated versions from the test site. I decided to make the forum itself available to use rather than make you all wait for the articles to be fixed. I should get these issues taken care of by Friday night. We will have the chat facility back by then too.

    In the mean time, the forum works fine and the new blog facility is up and running.

    Thanks for your continued patience and support!

    Hi John:

    Great job! I will like the new design once I get used to it. You know us old-timers have a tough time with these newfangled things

    Look good so far. Just a little confusing at first, as always. Just one thing though, perhaps a stronger colour for a new post in a thread? The light blue is quite hard to tell apart from the normal white.

    So far I've gotten overwhelmingly positive feedback. Thanks all.

    I've gotten a lot more done tonight, such as latest album pics on the front of the site (I had to write that from scratch because an addon for vb 4.15 wasn't available, which wasn't fun), the sponsor banners are now showing correctly (rather than just google ads), post thanks are back, as are many little tiny enhancements that I've also updated.

    My todo list as far as the upgrade is concerned has now shrunk to the following:

    - Get the care articles up and running (currently they are buggy and/or missing pictures, or completely blank)
    - Get the chat back up and running
    - Edit the main horizontal menu to get back some of the old functionality
    - Make new Sponorship and Sponsors List pages

    Should be able to get the first and second ones done today (Friday).

    Thanks for your continued patience.

    Most of the significant articles have been "converted". I'll finish the remainder later today (Saturday), as well as Meet the Frogs and our Chat.

    I'm experiencing some minor glitches while creating a blog:
    1. You can not tab, neither with Tab key or with the control panel.
    2. It's risky business to create a very long post, since I lost everything I had written when being unactive long enough. Luckly, I had it all saved on a Word-document since the "auto load"-function did not work.
    3. When pasting with Ctrl+V, it automatically pastes it at the very beginning of the post, no matter where I had selected it to be. So if I would click Ctrl+V now, it would paste it before the sentence "I'm experiencing some minor glitches while creating a blog:". In fact, I tried it just right now and it pasted it before the first sentence again. Guess it's not only in the blog but everywhere.

    Martin:

    1. and 3. I think those are browser related. Which browser are you using? I'll look into it more later today.
    2. I think I can fix the time out - I'll let you know.

    I'm using the lastest Opera. I'll try it tomorrow with IE and Chrome as well, to confirm or deny that it's browser related.

    Oh, I forgot something on the third point. If you rightclick > paste, it works as intended. Just Ctrl+V that's weird.

    Good luck with Opera. Used it in the mid 90s. Firefox all the way.
