  1. Hi Jason:

    Is there a way to set the font size of print so it's permanent? I'm on the 50's plus and we have to make the print bigger every time we post.


    Have a great day.


  2. Hi Jason:

    Not too excited that anyone can see our email addresses now. Also, # of posts we have typed is no where near correct.

    Have a great day.

      Hey Ashlee,

      Only staff / moderators can see email addresses - you are part of that group of less than 10 trusted people.

      I noticed the # of posts thing. I think the new software may only count topics created, and not all replies in every topic. I could be wrong, but I will look into it to ensure we are getting accurate counts.

      Hope this helps! Let me know any other questions or concerns.

      Jason - Tx - I forgot I was "one of those people" lol. Tx for the speedy reply. Have a super week. # of posts - it's not "life and death" lol - just happened to notice it.

  3. It looked the same on my iphone. Should be fixed now, sort of. The cursive is the default fallback font for devices that don't support Comic Sans. I added some additional fallback fonts, and changed the cursive to regular serif font. Should show as Comic Sans MS, Chalkboard SE, Comic Neue, or Serif - whichever the viewing device supports.
  4. Hmm, that is weird! I will look into it. Comic Sans
  5. Just did a patch to the typography errors introduced during the migration. The weird ’, “, and other characters should all be gone. If you see any others, I am not aware of them. Please let me know!
  6. We needed it... lol Really glad most everyone is enjoying the new platform so far. We'll gain some stability as the days go on. It's never a smooth ride, I do appreciate everyone's patience and support. I have a fix coming for those sideways pictures too. There's a built in feature to handle them, but the server needs to be restarted - so we will wait a bit. EDIT: should be good now.
  7. @tinka I added the font, font size, and font color selectors to the editor on all devices. We had to give up some things and add another bar for room, but worth it, I think.
  8. Most everything is in it's default configuration at the moment. So there's only one way to go from here. Up, up, up! Glitches will be sorted this coming week. I haven't allowed new members signup yet because of.. well spam, and I don't know how that's going to handle on the new platform. But we'll see soon enough. There is a place to display members online... I just wasn't sure exactly where would be best. I will add that block in when I figure it out.
  9. Let me check... Yep. Sure is. I will work on adding that feature soon. It looks like we can configure the tool bar for each type of device. Very nice. I saw some of the signature issues also, and I was working on an update to everyone now. Update on how things are going: I put the redirects in place, so visiting the old forum url's will bring you to the new forums, regardless. It was split decision because I wasn't sure if having both would be easier, or more confusing. I think it was both... The background processing has completed. So the things that look messed up, are officially messed up. I see a bunch of non-utf8 characters didn't make the conversion. Characters like ... ’ which should have been apostrophes and such. These I will clean up, but it will not be easy, and will not be today. Well, maybe it'll be today... It will be very soon either way. There are a lot of extra features here and it's all pretty new to me too, so if you find something interesting let us know!
  10. I'm afraid that might not be an option any longer... I looked in the admin panel too, but only see sorting option for topic with the forum, and not posts within the topic. However, it should jump to the first unread post when you visit a topic.
  11. And we're finally here! I recommend logging into the new forums with your current credentials, and start getting the hang of this wonderful new platform. The old forums are going be redirected shortly, and no longer accessible.
  12. Hey ya'll We're working on moving the forums to a new platform, right now! I've been trying to not mess with things here much. The settings can be very finicky. I am messing with settings now so... I want to get the import perfect before we totally change ships, so I apologize for any bouncing on the site. Some annoying things to expect during the move. -connectivity issues -possibly lost posts for some odd reason -definitely lost posts between the database snapshot, and whatever we continue to post now.(should be from today only) There will be some posts from today that don't make it in the transfer. It's not ideal, but it beats the option of disabling all posting for the day. To preserve any posts that didn't make it, just copy them from here to there. All posts up until now are still good here and will transfer over.
  13. Sorry, I had to take them back down for now. There were some issues with the migration. I had let it run last night and didn't notice until just now. There appears to be a couple weeks of missing posts, and the avatars didn't transfer. I'll give it another go this evening. I do expect a little learning curve... we've been using our current software for over 10 years! The new software feels very intuitive though. I think those that managed to get a hang of things here, will have zero problem on the new platform. Keep on keeping on here for today. Will let you all know how things are going. I do expect to lose maybe a couple of posts, but not weeks worth. So just be aware.
  14. Sorry about that! There was a little glitch in the matrix when I accidentally clicked "save" to a change I wasn't ready for. I quickly reverted it, but it still kicked everyone off the forums for a second. The new forums are up and running! As well as the new groups area! Please explore and get familiar with them. We will be shutting down this old board in a couple weeks or so.
  15. Still working on it, but I know, already long overdue. It's going to be a breath of fresh air. Already is on this end. I just finished moving the articles into the new system. Glad I am not the only one who can add them now Here's another peak at progress.
