This Forum


The forum software has been upgraded.

There are a couple of new extras, especially the spelling checker. This only works for english though and there are none for the non-english languages.

The members list now can be sorted by location. Those members who don't have a location listed will be at the beginning of the sort.

Some of the language files are incomplete and so have some words/phrases in english instead of the language. I am able to fix this in a minor way as long as I am told what phrase is to be replaced with the language. There is no guarantee though that it will be fixed because not all the phrases are easily located in the file.

This will be the last upgrade of this forum software/version. The developers are completely re-writing the code and expect the next version to be several years away.

Of course it was worth the downtime. And you wouldn't believe what took the most time to resolve! :thumbup:

Sad to notice that in the new version the possibility to go directly to "your favourites" -list in Personal Settings has disappeared :(

I'm just curious. Why make the nicks as links to the profile, when there already is a profile button in each message? Or am I missing something... :)

And I keep clicking the preview post button. :P

Hi, I have just entered the forum in order to see what is new with it and I see that the notepad has disappeared...
I was quite disappointed about it because I made use of it to take note of all the items I had sent or was waiting for... If I had known one of the changes involved deleting it, I'd have saved it... Now all my info have gone...:(

Very strange noting the posts by Willempie and CatWoman above. Maybe we do not all see the same things? I agree with Willempie favorites disappeared, though they can be found in the user control panel. Confused about CatWoman since "Notepad" took the place of "Favorites", at least on my page...



Here is the bar I see now on my front page. "Notepad" is there. But sadly, for me, this is exactly where "favorites" used to be.

I have never used 'notepad" and can't think of why I'd want to. But I use favorites all the time! Now I have to go to user control panel to find my favorites. Not so bad, I guess, but it's one extra step.

Not only that, I am so much in the habit, I have clicked on "Notepad" about a BAZILLION times today (ok, maybe more like 5-6, but enough to be annoyed by it). Because I'm so used to clicking there for favorites.

I guess not a big deal, since favorites haven't disappeared entirely, but I'd love it if they could come back to be easily accessible on the first page. Maybe we could replace the "User control panel" one, since there's already a link to that on the front page, where it says who we're logged in as?

Glad you found it because we definitely had it installed, Paulo and I had to go looking for it during the upgrade to make sure it wasn't lost.

email-notifications:

Instead of this: "xxxxx has replied to a thread you have subscribed to at Postcrossing Official Forum"
I now get this: "xxxxx hat eine neue Antwort in einem Beitrag geschrieben, den Sie in $SETTINGS[bbname] abonniert haben"

And I did NOT get notifications for all posts in this thread... :(

In the German version (both Standard and Iconic, which I use) "Notepad" which has unfortunately replaced my beloved "Favourites" is missing - only an empty box there...

I never checked the inproved search yet, i don't use it very often but what i don't really like is moving the user flags to the left (they look odd in there, it looks "piled" together with the location) and I have no idea why we need this info in the thread:

I noticed it in the Russian community first. Not that it bothers me, just another extra line in the thread.. *shruggs*

But I'm sure all changes are worth it, thank you PC team to make this forum better!

BUG-REPORT! :)

I wanted to put my email-address back in my profile and noticed that the box where it should go automatically fills in my nickname (maybe the box is defined wrong?).

When I put my email address in the right box, it tells me that the name/emailaddress has already been registerd.....

It is a new 'feature' of this version of the forum software put in by the developers. I have not been able to find a switch to turn it off from reporting in each thread.

First of all: thank you all for your efforts, you guys are great! :)

I have noticed one thing:

I keep receiving U2U notifications to my email-account, even though I am logged in on the forum.

When I checked my control panel it still says:
"Receive e-mail notification on new U2U
(Only sent when you are not logged in)"

Well is it some kind of mistake or actually a new feature?
It confuses me a little, because I would like to be informed about U2Us while I am absent, but it sort of "spams" my email account if I receive them all the time...
