Forum (finally) updated
« on: February 26, 2007, 02:11:32 PM »
Forum was updated to latest version 1.1.2
PMs are back, users with less than 30 posts will be forced to go thru captcha while sending PMs. Max. number of PM recipients is 10. Max. number of PMs per hour is 30. That should guarantee that there will not be any PM spam outbreak again.

Registration is now two step, first the captcha, then email activation. That should again stop the robots.

Thank you  :)

May I make a suggestion (not a complaint)?  Being color blind, I have a bit of a problem with the color based icons.  The icon for Normal Topics looks identical to the Topics I've Post In. 

Will there be an option for image based icons again?

Can you try to go to your profile, look & layout, Current Theme, change, and try to select either Babylon or Classic?

The classic theme has the SMF logo rather than an avast! logo.

I miss my Old theme, but the Babylon is close to its header layout which is what I liked, but a nice theme all the same.

I'm not sure I like the thumbnail views of attached images, no problem for those viewing them infrequently. But, a real pain for those helping having to open it for reference and each time you revisit that topic in the process of helping that user the image is in thumbnail format, again if need be you have to open it again. I guess we will have to see how it works out in the long term.

I didn't notice the forum 'Policy' button on the row of buttons, I like that being there as there is no excuse for not knowing the forum policy.

The Babylon theme also has the SMF logo.

Why are the email addresses shown despite my forum profile having 'Hide email address from public?' The email icon and address is still in the profile information of the post.

This is something I don't want, my email harvested or being spammed ?

Is this a problem with the Babylon theme as I notice a few others who I don't believe displayed it previously, like OrangeCrate above my posts..

Edit: I have been back into my profile and although the option was checked, I unchecked it and rechecked it, entered my password and changed the settings. This removed the email icon, but why was it necessary to do this when my original profile set-up and that shown in the new update showed the 'Hide email address from public?' option was checked.

Edit2: Cancel my last its bl**dy back again, what is going on ?

OrangeCrate does not have the 'hide' ticked. You have it ticked. Only members see the emails if unticked.

kubecj, I unticked the email (see my response to David above), did you just restore it?
I don't want my email to be seen by either the public, or the members.

Ticked means 'hide'.
Unticked 'show'.

OK then why is the email icon displayed and address displayed in my browser status bar when you hover over the icon ?

Edit: I see now that OC has checked the option his email icon has gone mine is still there ?
