Upgrades

Hi everyone,

The forums had an upgrade tonight. It's a bit like how your computer is always asking you to update your software - you also need to upgrade the software that runs the forums. If it gets too old it becomes a security hazard yadda yadda yadda.

With this upgrade things will look a little different, but all your content and posts are still here. I'm having a think about how this site will look in the future and will share some thoughts with you soon.

I'm also doing a check of how emails from the forums are working. From what I can see from the site analytics, a good deal of people aren't receiving emails like new post notifications or even forgot password emails. So I'm working on getting that fixed asap. Will keep you posted.

Also, I want to get rid of the old forum emoticons, so we can use modern day emojis. Does this work: 😎😎😎😎 (if no emojis in that blank space, then not working yet)

Cheers,
Tim

Tim, you are awesome. I cannot describe how amazed and thankful I am that you took the time to perform the upgrade tonight for the few of us klingons who still hang out here.

So, thank you so much. I am sure I'm not the only one who appreciates it. Cheers. xo

:D:);):smuggrin: << might be the old emojis :roflmao:

Thanks!

There seems to be a slight problem with the new upgrade, we can't insert tweets anymore and previously inserted tweets are now blank.
...perhaps it's still 'a work in progress' type thing FatPants or part of a future 'tweaking and fine tuning objective'... what about using the 'attach files' button in the left hand corner under the post that you're writing?... does that do it?... cheers.

...hey FatPants... I've just noticed the panel to the right of the emoji button that it has two new categories for inserting media... take a look...

...perhaps it needs to be inserted using 'code' or 'Inline code'?... they're new aren't they?... just saying... cheers.

Thanks Mr S, the attach files goes straight to looking for a file on my computer so that's not good but I'll try out the code thing below and see it if works.

Edit: Ok so I can't seem to make the code thing work for me.

Oh thank Tim. I was worried when the site went down.

Love the clean lines! And EMJOIS! πŸ’―

Does it have my fave emoji though? πŸ€”

...what if you download the Tweet to your desktop first and then use the 'attach files' option to put it into your post?... it may work like that perhaps?... cheers.
