Old forum gone now - Klaus - 02-25-2018

As mentioned - sorry but the switch was required due to security reasons etc.

The new theme is a bit edgy but in order to avoid losing even more new threads, it's better to do to it earlier than later.

I will continue to fine-tune the stylesheets - just gimme a little more time.

If you bookmark the forum I'd suggest to bookmark it with https rather than http.

Where is the Galery section?


RE: Old forum gone now - Klaus - 02-25-2018

There is no gallery section. It was barely used anyway. Image attachments are still possible.

Can you please add a view new content button ? Makes it much less of a time waste to find interesting threads.

Btw why was my status reset. It shows 1 post et all - oh well at least i have warnings.


RE: Old forum gone now - Klaus - 02-25-2018

View new content is available at the very bottom (left) or at the very top (click on the speech balloon). BTW, the "New Threads" to the right is actually sorted by the last posting.

About the status etc ... please note that this forum has a different engine (based on MyBB rather than IP.Board). Content conversion between different engines is pretty much always lossy.
Actually, I expected much less content to survive the migration. Thus you will have to live with certain side effects - sorry but that's the way it is.

Also note - I can change the stylesheets (layout) to some degree but the amount of reconfiguration is limited to what MyBB is providing.

Just to mention again - the old forum was broken. You may not have seen this but it was beyond recovery. Nothing that I tried to upgrade to a newer version worked and I did spend quite some time on this. Without means for applying necessary security patches, I had no choice but to migrate.

Yea. I took at look at the 4/3 1.2 thread; all my posts were assigned to guest unregistered. Wonder if only i was warped by the transfer software or if there is some specific characteristic of my profile that caused the translation error.

Hum. I wonder if it is just my user id that was corrupted.

I know it takes time to do these things but will we still have access to the lens reviews or am I missing it somehow?

If you click on the logo you will be directed to the main site.

I didn't copy the menu if you are referring to that. The main portal will be migrated to something else as well.

Good catch ?

Another thing I noticed: the thread title gets truncated when encased in the "flags" above the thread. See screenshot:
