Re: Website Upgrades

I wouldn't know much about flash problems, I got tired of the Flash PU ad's so I removed flash from my system.... I get an occasional "Sandbox Error" when flash tries to play...

New appearance for the site looks good!!

Re: Website Upgrades

If flash is a problem and you use Mozilla Firefox there is a plug in called FlashBlock (I think...a search would find it easily enough) that I use that blocks all flash elements and just puts a play button in their place. If I go to YouTube it means one extra mousestroke to view a video, but it sure does prevent hijacking and obnoxiously loud websites from destroying my peace.

Re: Website Upgrades

I like the new look. You are probably already aware of this but the search feature isn't working yet.

For example, type in an extremely common keyword such as "engine" and this is the result:

"No posts were found because the word engine is not contained in any post."

I'm with ya here, regarding change for change's sake. However, there are some features that I've been wanting to see that come with this new package (Well, RSS primarily) If it works as advertised, I can see new articles at a glance on my iGoogle page without having to pop in here.

Re: Website Upgrades

I've noticed that ever since I started using the new format that every time I login, every post that was a new post at the time I first logged in, is shown as a new post. If I view them or mark them as read, they de-highlight, but the next time I login, every post from May 28, 2007 and newer is shown as a new post again.

The only way to just see the new posts SINCE my last login is to select the "View new posts" option, so I guess I'll use that, but even then they revert to "new posts" at next login.

Griff click on the link at the bottom of the page that says Delete all board cookies, or click here and see if that helps.

Re: Website Upgrades

Thanks alot for trying Steve! Neither of those options worked, they just logged me out, and when I logged back in it was just as described in my previous post. I even closed Opera down to ensure my cache was cleared. I have Opera set to clear the cache and delete all cookies on exit (which it does quite faithfully).

Please don't waste any more time on it on my account, I can still use the "View new posts" option which does work as advertised. None of these issues are gonna keep this schoolie junkie from gettin' his daily fix!

Also, since nobody else seems to be experiencing this problem, I have to assume my something about my PC is at fault. Goodness knows what Windows XP Pro is doing behind the curtain.

Re: Website Upgrades

I do have to say that the ability to post pictures without having them hosted elsewhere is HUGE. No more will we have to struggle with getting the picture to show or teaching the new guy (I was that guy at one point) how to do it. For those of you that haven't tried the new integrated picture hosting, give it a shot.
