Hi All

Just to let you know I've upgraded the website to the latest stable version. Unfortunately this means that the shoutbox has been lost for the time being. I am in the process of trying to sort it out however as there have been significant changes at the coding level then it may take some time to work out how to reintegrate it - Put into context we are now running version 12 whereas the shoutbox was developed for v9 I think!

Please bear with me, this may take a couple of hours or days depending on how frustrated I get! LOL


***EDIT*** All Completed!

I was totally inconvenienced for that 50 minutes I wasn't online while you were working on it. ;)

The site scales to my browser window size better, and my typing font is different I think. Other than that I don't notice much of a difference right off.

LOL How dare I

To be honest I was expecting my son to be a bit more of a grump and try and grab the laptop whilst I was doing it, however he slept for most of the time which helped massively!

One of the major changes is that there is now a button that allows the member to see what information we hold on them as per GDPR however it isn't working at the moment (will check it in a min). So for clarity all that we hold are the registration details (e.g. email address etc) and IP addresses of each post. We do not give out ANY of that information to anyone and if a member deletes their account all that information is deleted along with it and their posts show up as a "guest" account

Good forum update to maker us safer, plus staff usernames back to being in bold LOL

I've told Joe about it but anyone else struggling with viewing mobile version on your phone? Might be my phone that can't cope with the update but I aren't seeing the last topic posted in each section or the arrow to the side of a section to click on last topic. To know if anyone has posted in a section I have to click in a section to find out.

It's also not showing profile information down the left such as avatars and post counts or a profile signature. Classic view works fine as always on my phone, but mobile version isn't as friendly to post away from a computer.

I have noticed some nice subtle changes such as the latest posts section being more spacious.

I was just going to post about the mobile version 

I'm not sure I have an issue seeing the last post but everything is elongated  (the page seems narrow as if all the content is compressed)

I'll have a look into it. I'd always recommend the classic view mode but place your phone horizontally - scroll to the bottom of the page and hit the relevant button - I always found it as easy to use as the mobile version.

The only issue for me with the mobile view is that when holding my phone vertical the the site goes narrow and doesn't fit the screen properly but this is easily rectified by switching to horizontal. 

Otherwise all looks good, I've always used classic format on every device, could never get on with the mobile view.

Yeah using the site on my phone's browser is pretty bad. Today is the first time I've used it on my phone since the update and it's not good.

The frames don't scale well to my screen either on mobile or desktop/classic mode. Before the update I would use it on classic and it was pretty good, and mobile was too uninformative. Now I just don't know what I'm looking at and have to fumble my way around.
