Warning - Changes are afoot

Post by Cylindric » Sun Dec 16, 2007 1:59 pm

As you will have noticed, I'm in the process of upgrading the forums to the new version. Please be patient while this is going on.

If you have any problems, please post them as new topics in the Website section so they can be resolved.

The styles will be updated to something shiny soon as well, so don't nag about that or you'll be banned for life.

I like the manage foes feature. At last no more emo. No one will hear them scream.

Little rough around the edges ofcourse after an upgrade but i already love the improvements.

Finally smilies get inserted at the line you're typing in Firefox :cheers: with this version. Much more intuitive and less labour. :D

Much appreciation for the upgrade.. looking forward to see some home-grown Sunfall styles appearing!

No probs, we'll make it look all shiny and pretty soontm.

Some points to note:
  • No HTML - you cannot use HTML tags in messages or signatures any more
  • Avatars have defaulted to 80x80, but if you go into your User Control Panel you can reset the size (anything up to 100x100)
  • Most of your sigs look shite. Fix them.
  • Draft rules for sigs & avatars
  • Attachments - you can now attach files to posts
  • Other bits'n'bobs - you'll work these out, just have a look around the User Control Panel

Oh yes, and for those of you that can't resist showing off YouTube things, you do it differently now.

On the YouTube page, make a note of the URL they show

Code: Select all

http://www.youtube.com/v/K2cYWfq--Nw&rel=1
Now, put this in some [flash] bbcode tags, with the width and height you want it to be:

Code: Select all

[flash=425,355]http://www.youtube.com/v/K2cYWfq--Nw&rel=1[/flash]
And it looks like this

First, you cannot use [flash] in Private Messages, only in posts.
Second, don't include the

Code: Select all

 bits, they were just there so you can see what I typed.
