New Board software.
« on: January 04, 2005, 05:25:00 PM »
Congratulations with the new board Alwil. Nicely done, matches very well with the website layout.

To all others:
This new board has some new futures/options.
I can imagine that not everybody knows how to handle it.
If you have questions about it, feel free to ask.
I and others have experience with this software and are more than happy to help.

Yep new board looks nice, best thing so far is it works fine with Firefox, so i don't need to use the BBcode extension any more

I have a question, why do i get the following message when i try to use the spell check function/button under my post:

'An Error Has Occurred!
2: PSPELL couldn't open the dictionary. reason: I'm sorry I can't find any suitable word lists for the language-tag "en".'

I have tried highlighting  and un-highlighting the text i want checked.

When clicking on a link from an e-mail notification it's not taking me to the last visit in the thread but to the
top of the last page?
Any clues?

Lee,
it just means that the dictionary isn't installed or not installed correctly.

Bob,
profile > look and layout preferences > check "Show most recent posts at the top"
That is as close as you can get with the current board.

Hi all,

if you have any problems with the new forum software, please contact kubecj via PM.
Also - note that the new version offers the Themes selection in your profile - we have prepared some nice themes for you  ;)

The help section on this board is significantly better than it was with Yabb ;)

It looks very nice and clean.
Not really fast though. Seems to freeze from time to time. I have a 1536Kbit/s adsl connection but the old board seemed to respond faster... ???  ???

This board has no option to show a "board policy" button, nor can it be enabled in the administrator options.
Only way to add it is to change the source or use a mod to add it.

Keep in mind that is only very shortly "opened".
I guess there is still a little "fine tuning" to do.

Yes - that's true - it was true in old YABB SE as well but there was just one simple template, here we have 5 Themes now - it means that five templates must be modified and five special buttons created. Because the Forum Policy was recently moved into Announcement section anyway, I will not add it to the menu now.

Also - someone reported that the Black color of "Upcoming Birthdays" is not visible in Helios theme. Unfortunately, this color is defined only once in the forum - it means that it is the same for all themes and therefore sometimes not clearly visible - but you will understand it anyway  ;)
