Hi everyone,

When you've picked yourselves up of the floor and realized that you are still in the same place [:eek:)] you'll have noticed that the forum has changed a little - Okay then - a lot, lol

Over the next day or so they'll be a few more changes as I re-add some of the previous functions.

Why the change[?]

Various reasons:

This new software makes less demand on the server which in turn will increase the speed further especially for members with poor connection speeds.

Security - Presently we get at least one attempted hack per week, this board is even more secure with the added addition of encrypting your passwords to further protect your details, log-on, etc.

A bit more flexibility and a few more options for me to play with [:D]


Anticipated Problems:

If you have problems logging on, especially if you are on AOL, close AOL down, locate the 'Internet Explorer' Icon on your Desktop, Right Click it and select 'Properties'
In here choose to Delete Temporary Internet Files using the 'Delete Files' button.
Clear your History and -
For Internet Explorer 6.0 users, choose to 'Delete Cookies'
For Internet Explorer 5.0 and 5.5 users, cclose the IE window, Double Click 'My Computer', Double Click 'Windows', find the 'Temporary Internet Files' folder. Select 'Edit', click 'Select All' and then press your 'Delete' button.
You may be asked if you want to delete the cookies, if so, just choose yes.

Any more problems let me know (with the exception of bits missing as I have a list, lol) and if you still have problems logging on, email me with your username and I'll look at from here.

Have Fun,

Regards, Dave

I like the new back-ground!

And the quick-reply at the bottom is a great idea.
Or was that there before? Hmmmm [:)]

All new Trev

There is also the option to reply using the Smilies and Forum code such as Bold, Italics, Images, etc, using the 'Reply to Topic' link as before but with a little difference.

If you want to make a section of text, say, Bold then highlight it with your mouse and then click the
button and so on.

If you want to add an image into a post then click in your post where the image is to appear and then click the
button. Place your image URL between the tags.
If using the 'MyPhoto' upload you don't need to do this as the code is included with the URL. The Link for the 'MyPhoto' is still at the top-right of the forum but will only show if you are logged in.

To include a basic Smilie, just click the one that you want and it will add to your post....

....and there's more [:D]

Dave the 'bits missing' is this a reference to a chisel, thumb and hand?[?] [}:)] As to the back ground nice. Peeps thats a view of sammys stretch (River Penk) as you enter our section of the river. So if you fancy a bash at the chub thats in there details for joining MADRAS are on the forums. I'll be down there Saturday drowning a few of the proverbial [:)].

chill out go fishing

Hi Toma,

If you are logged in you will see the 'MyPhoto' link on the top right, just at the left of 'Chat Room'

If you can't see it let me know,

Dave

Now you see it, now you don't lol

It was my mistake, I wrote the code so that only people with Moderator Status could see it, of course I could see it all the time lol

Sorted for the time being, [}:)]

Dave

PS If you get an error thrown up just give it a second and refresh your browsers as Iam still working on it at this end, thanks.

Hi Les that's where the image is presently formatted with regards to size, I'll alter it once I get to the tidying up bit - the bit that the missus always complains about when I've been d******ing [:D]

By the way everyone, if you look at the top left of this page you'll see this:


If you click the second link down 'Fishing Talk' you will return to the front page but will only see the 'Fishing Talk' category of the forum.
To see all other categories you need to click the Yellow Folder that is on the left of the Dark Blue Bar as shown here:


This applies to all the forums and just gives you an elememt of useability - Who's going to be the first who will ask where the other forums have gone lol

Hi Simon,

Thanks for the feedback, it's nice to see it hasn't had an affect on other browsers, AOL's is one of the hardest to code for.

quote:Ah but where is the Private Message bit???

The PM's are now working after burning the midnight oil, they too have a little difference but one that should make life a little easier.

If you click a member's profile you can now send a PM from it so you don't have to go back and forth to the frontpage. Also there is a link in the navigation on the top right to your message centre.
In there you have the usual options to alter your preferences, send and delete but now with the addition of forwarding.
There is a limitas to how many you can store at any one time and that presently set at 10 inbox and 10 outbox. This is prevent the database fromclogging up with old messages.

If you receive a new message there will be an alert on the top of the forum as you are browsing.

Right got to go back to work now [V] so see you all later and if there are any problems, please let me know - I have one pair of hands but many pairs of eyes lol [:eek:)]
