Hi everybody,

I installed the current version this morning. There may be some glitches and differences.

Please post any faults or queries here.

Thanks,

…….. though I do think that those who are "knowledegable" might have a word to say about it! Big_Laugh  Big_Laugh

You need one of these Danny Medicine- it helps with spelling, honest!

 

'uograded?' tch tch - still I suppose that 07.30 is a little early, ay? Big_Laugh

Hmm…I have two PMs which I can't open.  I'll have a little play and see if I can do other things – with my new Spork!  Thank you BS for finding and Danny for implementing.  Big_Hug

 

Now, in Arts and Related Subjects, I can't see a lot of Kate's pictures and the text has gone way past the right hand margin of the readable area.

I'll try that again!

The things that I noticed immediately were:

1 - At the bottom, it is not showing who is logged in or who the top posters are. On my blog admin panel they appear fine.

2 - The sig line typeface beneath posts has become teeny weeny and unreadable.

3 - The PM system looks and feels different. It may take some getting used to. TA, the problem with your PMs may be related to some bits that were not updated due to technical and security reasons why some folders on the site are inaccessible to the the upgrade tool. Bear with me on this.

MOS: I hope that strange behaviour was just a one-off. Let me know if it happens again.

BS: thank you so for the health tip. Guinness and eyesight and finger movements are definitely related Big_Laugh

OK, I'll be patient...

I could see that you were on line...

I agree about the size of the sig line...

On the plus side, so far I don't need to reload the page before getting the emoticons.

I'll try that again!

OK, no emoticons, previously posted pictures not visible, unable to open Personal Messages I still can't see a Members button.  I feel as though I'm working without all the tools I'm used to.  Oh, and all my Moderatrix bling has disappeared. 🙁 

 

Edit:

When this post was being saved my screen looked very odd and it took a long time to save.


I'll try that again!
