Forum upgrade

289 posts in this topic

I've been putting this off for a while but here it is so welcome to the new FT v4!

 

Firstly the forum is likely to run slower than normal as part of the upgrade there is a lot of processes running in the background that will complete over the next couple of days and then we'll get back up to our usual level of performance.


The first big change is your log in is your display name. Previously you could have a seperate username to log in, from now on use your display name (or email address). If you are reading this unable to login you should be able to get the relevant details via reset username/password links on the sign in page. If still not working try emailling admin@foxestalk.co.uk and we'll do our best today to resolve any issues.

 

Feel free to test out posting pictures/twitter/youtube links as all should be automated, so no more questions about how to post a picture. :)

 

Any other problems let me know on this thread.

Is there still an option to switch to desktop mode? I use Firefox Android and can't find it - there's an option to force it using the browser settings but it doesn't display properly

Less posts per page means we get to 100 quicker :ph34r:

 

Generally looks like a good upgrade.

I'm having problems with the mobile version. Doesn't fit like the old one used to. I'm having to keep zooming in every time to read something.

With the new software there is no desktop/mobile version - the theme automatically adjusts to fit your device

Cheers. Seems to be ok on the other threads, just this one it's a bit small. Seems a good update already, was never able to use emojis on the mobile version before. Nice work.;)

Oh that's a shame, I really don't get on with mobile sites. They put me on edge!

Hey buddy,

 

So. A question. Loving the 'view new posts' option since our discussion on the temporary site.

 

Is there any way that when you click on the thread in new posts (I don't see page numbers anymore) you can be taken to the most recent page rather than the first page?

 

Thanks,

 

SL
