- Emoticons are still a mess. That is without taking into consideration it's not the standard HoW set.
- All personal messages stay in the inbox, ranked from oldest to newest. Doesn't remember when you set it to newest to oldest. You can label them, but there's no option like subfolders where to shove them in if you'd wanted to like on the old board.

Not really a glitch, but will the ads be removed soon, or what?

Spuduka: the old smilies are under the [more] link if you reply.

Great One: Still thinking what to do with the ads. If we're going to use it for guests only or to members as well. They're enabled for regular members and guests alike now (exceptions are (ex-)staff members and members who donated for now).

So I came and checked out the new forum. I logged in and tried to hide my email address, since it was a dead link anyway. It told me I'd changed the address (I did no such thing) and proceeded to deactivate my account. It sent me a validation email apparently, but yeah, dead email address. So here I am, with a new account, requesting my old account be reactivated.

Hey Alrin, Have you got your account sorted now? I saw a post from you in the Feist forum? any issues let me know.

Everyone else I updated the smilies so all the old emotions are shown by default  :smile:

I was wondering, is it possible somewhere to set a size for your avatar? It seems the new board likes to blow up my avatar, and I personally don't like it that big, makes it look a bit too pixely.

Seems uploading the picture to the site rather then linking to it has worked it out. Still might be something to look into, though ;)

It was terribly outdated and prone to spam.

Hello and Happy New Year as well !


Thanks for the new skin, much better like that less blackish !  :elf_gloop:

There, I get notification of messages ass hown underneath but see it leads to an empty message!

Is that normal or is there a bug?
I did format to receive the message inside my mail, is there the reason to be found?

Thx

BTW how did you do the banner at the top they still have the SMF on on our site and it really hacks me off.

Edit the page-source, there are two ways to do it:
1. Log in to admin CP -> themes and layouts -> modify themes -> Browse the templates and files in this theme -> index.template.php
2. If you have FTP access: download index.template.php from your theme directory, edit it and upload it back.

On the spam, upgrade the forums to the latest version (1.1.4) and install these plug-ins:
http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=907
http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=999

If one of them won't install because it's outdated, open the zip, open and edit package-info.xml. You might see a line with board-version numbers, change one into 1.1.4.


@ Mara: I'll look into it.

@ Wolf: Thanks!
