Upgrade - 8 January 2014

Post by Dinkum »

Yes, I can hear it now, I've been tinkering again, but it time for an upgrade. :-o

I've been working on a few new features which are nearly finished and I plan to do the upgrade on Wednesday, 8 January 2014. I'll detail all the changes once I have completed the work, but the forum will be offline from around 10am and it may take until late afternoon when we are back.

I'll provide further updates closer to 8 Janaury 2014.

I offer my advice freely, but I am not an expert, breeder, groomer or behaviourist. It is simply my experience of raising pups in a way that seems to make sense.

I don't have any plans to change the smilies. It was discussed a few years ago and the general consensus was that the current set of smilies worked quite well. They convey emotion when needed, are small enough so as not to interfere with the layout and seemed to cover most needs.

I've seen some really horrible smilies on some forums. They are huge and mess with the line formatting.

What did you have in mind? If there are specific smilies people want that are roughly the same size as the current ones, I can add them. Don't forget that there is another page of smilies. Just click on the 'View more smilies' link.

PS. For those that don't know and use Tapatalk, our smilies are not available in Tapatalk and I am trying to get their smilies in here, so that we don't just see bizarre code.

Nothing in mind was just a general question :)

I finished most of the upgrade today. Got some settings to tweak, but I wanted to get the forum back online.

I'll do a few posts tomorrow about the changes and some guides on how to use them.

If you come across anything untoward, let me know please.

Oh, and see if you can spot some of the changes. :)

You could be right about the unanswered posts - to be fair I am normally reading via unread posts as I hate to miss anything :ymblushing:

Noticed the search box isn't there anymore unless logged in, and you can't view active topics which you could before ;)

I couldn't thank on a post either
