A little tip.

Some links that used to be present all the time are now hidden in 'mouse over' menus.

For instance, I didn't know where the 'COMPOSE NEW MESSAGE' link was.   Well, if you pass your mouse over the Messages in the upper right, it gives you the following.  Just click one.

An even better tip to return your inbox to how it was last week.

See the two little arrows in the upper right hand corner.  Click it.  I'm so happy.

The upgrade was necessary because it was out of date with the current version of MY SQL and other software provided by all webhosts.  That made the forum a ticking time bomb, possibly one step away from a complete crash when the server software updated once again.

I'd been urging RF to complete the upgrade before he left, but he did not undertake the task.  That's why you got what you've got.  We'd be happy to accept help from any member who steps up.


I’d been wondering about that.  I have zero knowledge about such things, but I do know one person that does that said they believed things were getting a bit ‘untenable’ (my word) at RU, and I extrapolated that to include here.  My way of thinking about it was concern that all of RF’s duct tape and bailing twine was going to give way some day soon.

It’s good to hear there was a plan for that.

Rope spent a lot of his time fixing problems and hours keeping this place germ free. Super Glue or duct tape worked. I wager he does not miss the "pay" he gave up.

The only problem I've encountered so far is that sometimes two posts look like they're blending together.

For example, the line separating Jed's and staci's posts is above the 'Report to moderator' and 'logged' buttons for Jed's post. Then staci's avatar and profile info is slightly offset to the right of Jule's and Jed's avatars and info, and there is a large blank space to the right of that. Then there is a line below staci's avatar/profile/blank space with the actual message.

Clicking the same place on your own profile page eliminates the mouse over options on that page as well.

Like anything new or revised, it will take time to get comfortable with the new image. Except for the first day of the rollout, everything seems to be working good.

Will this new platform have stronger security embedded?

For many years we relied on Rope to handle all the behind the scenes stuff. Things change.

The layout's been changing the past few minutes. Right now it's on a blue theme that I really like  8)

I like this look, Critical Thinking mentioned, but are we able to go smaller?

Well I'm blue...umm, make that black and blue.

Just when I was starting to enjoy the green and black.
Hope our coder's are having fun.

I do notice a big difference between the Android version and the PC. Android buttons aren't labeled, so I just have to use trial and error to get where I want to go.

Well trained and been made compliant....by our two cats.

I agree.  I was off yesterday and was surprised when I came online this morning.  Lois has been trying out different themes.

I did find one feature that I enabled.    If you go to the very bottom of the page.   There is a POPULAR KB PAGES title in the footer.   I added a few popular links.   For sure we'll keep HOME and UNREAD in there.  We'll discuss what else on the mod board.   I just wanted to make you aware of it.  I like it because when viewing a forum like this, you are usually reading the last post in a thread.  Just look a smidge further down and you've got your next link option.

The writing is so large now, it crowds up the whole screen. I'm just used to seeing so much more right on the screen in front of me without scrolling.
