I've noticed when uploading a pic you also have to insert the pic into the post. Yes I have a insert tab asking me to do so after the up load.

Now as to these threads building top down that is indeed strange.The new forum is quite nice all in well done I must say.

yes, we all have this problem, so you are not alone.

we just have to hope that Oz finds the solution soon. Let's just hope he finds the solution without him plucking his eyebrows as he told me that he allready pulled out all the hairs he had left to get the site up and running again. ;)  ;)  ;)

It is what it is at the moment. I'm allready glad we have the forum back online again, so thank you again Oz for all your hard work.

Moving on the internet always gives problems. Trust me I know.....

Oz I still can't view pictures that members are posting. I went through the settings but didn't see anything that would help resolve it on my end.

Great to hear that, Rick! Not too fancy, not too plain. Very glad you approve. I think the phone version is a great improvement too!

Currently, all pre-migration uploaded attachments, avatars and the gallery images are unviewable.  I know what the problem is and am working on the fix.

To be honest, I liked it better too.  I spent a LOT of time going into the program files to change the colors as well as downloading images, backgrounds etc. so Dave Bailey could create the HTML in order to present the custom pages which, combined all together, really made this site stand apart from others.
However, even before the site had to be migrated, my error log was riddled with background errors due to the aging of the old version I was using and it would literally take a wizard to correct them.  I've gotten pretty good at this over the years but, there's a lot I don't know and I really had no choice but to do a major upgrade and that overwrites all the files I customized.

Having said all that, with what I've learned, I may do some customizing.  The thing is, it seems a lot of people these days like bland, run-of-the-mill presentation of things.  Like houses done in all white ang gray. Like "creativity" is too much.  I don't really know but, I think there's a happy medium to be found and, once I get all the pieces of this puzzle put back together, I'll try to find it.

Well, to be honest, I liked the coloring like it was way better then this. It's all a bit to bright for my taste.

But that's personal of course, but would like to hint that i at least wouldn't mind to go back to the "original" colors after the bugs are fixed  :grin:  :cool:  :grin:

But first things first and let's get the site functioning like ik should first and take whatever time is needed for it Mark. I'm with ya every step (and time) it takes.

I like this forum Plattform. Hope it's going to be supported for a while so that all your work is good many years to come.

Actually, it's the same one we've had since we had to find a home after MSN groups shut down.
It's just the latest version and I'm minimizing the customizing of it to keep it neat and clean!

 :laugh:   It looks broken but, I'm working on it.  Most important things first, and then aesthetics but, the way it looks now is how it will continue to look.  Just need to fill in a lot of blanks.  ;)
