    Issues - Relate to Project Tools a new addon to the forums which will help us track problems etc a little way down the road when we start in with using the wiki that is currently being installing for the forums. It will also help with finding bugs and other issues when an update is done. It currently isn't in use but a test can be found under Projects on the top Nav bar in some of the skins and hopefully in all by tomorrow.

    Skew - Any change in what you see yet. I edited the posts this arvo and ended up with 2 pics in both. Is that what you can see. or do you have something else. If so what about a screen shot.

    I have tried it in 5 different browsers and apart from a few minutes last night in Mozilla it was fin in all. Including Mozilla after I went back to it again.

    Cheers - Neil

    It's coming up fine now, with a large image in the body text and the std. thumbnail at the bottom of the post.

    Thanks, Neil.

    So, which ones can? It seems the "U-Beauts" skin doesn't.... unless I'm looking in the wrong spots?

    I am using BASIC at the moment, but it won't be long till the back room guys catch up. As you can imagine they are a little busy at the moment...

    Ah... of course. The only one I hadn't tried. And they're so obvious there, too.

    I'm sure the lads are working hard putting things in order. That's OK... we won't let 'em forget.

    I got something similar to Skew's experience before the upgrade, I think (or maybe during). First time I've ever seen this IIRC. Showed a placeholder with ID, etc. & "Click image for larger version". When clicked, I got a new login screen with message "You are not logged in, etc." When logged in, all thumbnails became visible, and large versions opened normally.

    Fine & dandy until a few minutes ago, when I got it again. Post was php?t=56260. I'm not too adept at manipulating screen shots, so not sure if this will be clear.

    I'm using IE5 (still).

    Details of the updates will not be given beforehand (I don't have them ), but there should be some things in Uncle Neil's bag for most of us.
    I think a serious bug has been introduced. I just tried several times to post a reply to a thread.

    Each time, my post was rejected with an error message as follows: "The message you have entered is too short. Please lengthen your message to at least 1 characters." The text I had entered was cleared (Grrr!) After typing it all again, the same happened no matter how long it was.

    The only way I was able to make that post and this one was to use the "Quote" button. Even then only the quoted text showed in the new post and my text was lost. However I then edited the post and was able to reinstate my text.

    Joe - Go to the bottom of the page, just below the Google search thing and click on the Firefox button. You can download the latest version for free and it will hopefully fix this problem and a few more.

    Same goes for anyone else running a browsers that hasn't been updated for a few years. This could fix all your problems, and if nothing else, will at least make your web browsing a faster, better experience.

    If you don't want to do it through this forum because you're worried we might make a few cents off you, then don't. Go Google Firefox and download it from somewhere else, it really doesn't bother me. But whatever you do; do yourself a big favor and go get it, I doubt you'll ever be disappointed.

    Cheers - Neil

    Coldamus and Anyone Else with a problem:

    Please help us to help you. We're not mind readers. To help you and probably others we need to know a couple of bits of important information. Like:

    What browser you are using and the version number?
    eg: EI3 IE5,6 or 7 Firefox, Opera v3, 5, 9? etc
    What operating system?
    eg: windows 98, xp, 2000, Vista. Mac OS, Linux etc. etc
    What exactly is the problem?
    Joes description and the one above by Coldamus are good and give us some idea of the problem bu just need that little extra so we can hopefully deal with it and let others in the same boat know what to look out for.

    If you can get a screen shot or 2 even better, but the basics above are pretty much essential for any changes to take place.
    As everything runs faster and gets better on the www it stands to reason that out of date and in some cases obsolete programs and browsers will begin to fail. To do what has been done and is still being done by way of updates here we have also had to update servers with the latest php codes and other scary stuff. So it stands to reason the older the program is at your end the easier it is that there may be a problem.

    It's no big deal. Most of the problems if at your end can be fixed by downloading and installing the latest browser or updating your Operating System. Most will cost you nothing but a little time.

    Cheers - Neil

    PS it is also possible that some of the problems could be stemming from the fact that we've been working furiously in the back room over the past 3 days, still are and probably will be for another day or so.

    I am on Windows 98 with IE5.5 SP1 and there's a good reason why I can't upgrade this particular machine. I will try from my other machine in a moment. It is on Windows 2000.

    I don't really know what is happening but it seems to me that the forum software is clearing the edit box before trying to post the text in it. It then complains that there is no text to post. It should be posting first and then clearing.

    Also, when I first tried to make this post, I used the quote button to reply to Neil's post. I then cropped some of the quoted text to reduce the total size of the post. However when I submitted the post, the whole quoted message was included (but not my comments).

    I then edited it to what you see here. So editing works Ok for me but not replying to a post or submitting a new post.

    OK. I am now logged in from my second computer. It is on Windows 2000 with IE6.0 SP1.

    Edit: Yes, it all seems to work Ok from this machine.
