It's missing all the internet code language stuff that has the original authors name and so forth and its in an annoying box while I'm writing.

What ever is going on with the quoting feature, I don't like it.
It stopped listing who said when when your writing a post and there's just these label-less grey boxes.
Test.

Edit: Looks fine to me? Can you show me a screenshot?

 

Here it is:

It sucks. I'd very much preffer older version.

As noted previously, I have upgraded the software. Evidently, there have been some changes to certain functionality.

 

Please keep any issues and feedback in this thread, and I'll try to address them.

 

So far, it looks like quoting, whilst replying, needs addressing and that the auto-parsing of video links no longer works (which I think may be a security measure, you can still post videos by using the [media] tags.)

 

Post editing functionality is also a permissions issue that probably got reset when the software upgrade went in.

Made some bug fixes and upgraded the forum, you can once again select the default/light theme from the style chooser ('Change Theme' in bottom left of forum). Please let me know if you encounter any issues.

It'd be cool to have a green/black theme too.

The old header looks WAY better than the current one! The current one actually looks more outdated, I think they should reintroduce the old one, tbh.

When this post is about an hour old, I will be taking the forum down for an hour or so, due to a software upgrade which is required.

 

Edit: Done.

I think everyone should thank Caiman for all the awesome work he does. In addition he gives us these warnings in advance and the downtime is very brief and usually when the forum is relatively unpopulated anyway. Three cheers for Caiman!

He does, just have a look at his reputation page. Here's an example: http://www.futuretim...gineer/?p=33693

Sorry for the bump, but, what happened to getting a replacement for The Shoutbox that we apparently had before I joined?

lol i would also like to know the answer to this 2 year old post before me


Pope Francis said that atheists are still eligible to go to heaven, to return the favor, atheists said that popes are still eligible to go into a void of nothingness.
