Upgrade complete
« on: February 22, 2009, 10:18:12 AM »
The hard part is done.
I now just need to make some adjustments to the site and add some add ons.
Some of this may not get done for awhile cause I have personal things to take care of.
You can use the board but you may not see all the whistles and bells from the previous version.
I am going to try and see if we can still use some of those features like having BBC's in the custom signature area.

This all may take awhile because I might test out some of these add ons at my test site, just to be sure they won't mess anything up.

If you don't understand some of the new features like the WYSIWYG, please ask for help.
If you notice any problems, please point them out.
Thanks.

Update to this message: There seems to be a problem in the administration area as far as making some changes to the site so I have to find out why.
The WYSIWYG isn't working because of this problem.
I'll get it straightened out, but not sure when.
Sheryl

Sheryl, I am having problems reading the smaller fonts.  Is there going to be a way to increase size of fonts by individuals.   I see you have an avatar but I could not find where the avatars were added. 
Also when you go to profile now it shows stats like how many hours on line, how many posts started, etc.   Will others be able to read my stats?

You can still change the font size by clicking the drop down tab that says "size."
I have to check out your other questions because I'm not sure.

I'm signed in with my member account and at the moment, I can see your stats.
I don't know if that's a feature that can be turned off. I'll have to check for you but it's possible until I fix my administration problem, I may not be able to do anything about this.

As to the avatars, if you had an avatar and it's now missing, you'll have to add it again.
I just added one to this profile to be sure it worked.
If this isn't what you're talking about, let me know.

I finally got my administration problem fixed and will work on making changes that need to be made to the site.
As I said, you can change your font size by clicking the drop down menu for font size.
I'm using 14pt in this message.
You'll be able to see how big your font is while you're typing so if you think you picked too small of a text size, just go a little higher.
 
I will be adding a feature that lets you make similar changes in the quick reply box.
Right now it's a standard box. If you know BBC's you can use them to make changes in the quick reply for the time being.
Same goes for the signature area.
I'm not sure the add on that shows you a taskbar with BBC's will work on this version.
I need to check into that.
 
I believe the upload attachment is working properly. That's a plus but I still recommend you upload an image to an online photo storing site, and then add it to your profile that way.
 
If you need any help with anything, just hollar.

I added the WYSIWYG  quick reply modulation, however, as you can see, the reply box looks as if it's not in the right spot.
Something is wrong and I knew this before I installed it since I had the same problem on my test site.
I haven't had time to find out how I can fix this.
It works, just looks strange.
Once I get everything else working the way I want it to work, I'll see if I can get this fixed.

Thanks Melinda.
Did you try out the WYSIWYG yet?
That's my favorite feature.

So what do you think Chell?
It makes it easier to edit your text.
 
BTW, I fixed your avatar for you.

Thank you for fixing the avatar.  I appreciate it. 

I like using  wysiwyg
.  None of the message boards I have ever been on has had this feature.
