Website Issues

39 posts in this topic

Gday Guys,

 

Smarty posted in the shoutbox to start a thread in here for any website issues. I have one.

 

I used to use the Active Content button on the old forums, this displayed all posts that were active in the last 24 hours. was useful as soon as my Scrim posts and fun night posts dropped out of this 24 hours I then bumped them. I can no longer see an option for active content. Can we please get this added or me pointed in the right direction, or an explanation how I can keep these threads at the top of the everyones list.

 

Drop down menus top right off member name not working assuming they will be drop down menus.

 

Cheers

Jinx.

 

P.S. Website looks nice mate, very modern.

Created a fun night archive forum so we can put the old posts in there, so we dont get 3 outdated posts showing on the homepage.

Ive kinda sorted the homepage out.

had to move a topic to the animation studio "cartoon gens supported games", so it shows the 3 appropriate topics on the home page.

no doubt there was a better way of doing this, but i couldnt find it, :wallbash:

Jinx, drop down menu next to name works fine for me, the answer is use the Chrome browser (MS IE always gave me issues even with the old version IPBoard, had to toggle compatibility on and off).  In fact if you use Chrome you will get an embedded browser spell checker Cappy.

 

Boom, two problems solved.

Alright here are the fixes or solutions.

 

Jinx, to find the posts that where active in the last 24 hours. Click on view new content on top right of the page. On the new page you can toggle between unread content in active content active in past 24 hours, week, 2 weeks and more. 

 

Cappy, don't know what the problem with the roster is, I was able to link the profile with Herriden.pro without a hitch.  For the calendar, it seems broken all together, I openned a ticket with IPS to see what the hell the problem is. I tried everything I could think of, nothing worked so far. !

Removed ability to change picture to all members, since there is now just one picture for a profile, then we must assign the avatar via AdminCP, but also means the upload to the site will be made automatically. 

 

So for example,Cappy or my self can save on our computers new or updated avatars on our computer locally. Then from the AdminCP, channge the photo of the desired member, select it from our local computer, then it will upload. No longer need ftp access to manage avatars.

Seems to be a slight issue with file size on ,definitely Hodgys, possibly others, avatars.

take a look at Hodgys and mine  Avatars,

 

Downloaded the png from the database, uploaded it in ACp now its massive
