Moving forward!

#1 Post by Stu » Mon Feb 08, 2016 5:44 pm

A good while ago a new version of the forum software was released (phpBB) which means with the new software there is less and less support for this version!

Its going to come to a point in the near future that I will have to upgrade to this new version! now the problem is some of the modifications I use are not available for the new version and there is no guarantee if they will be available!

modifications are:

Gallery
the like post
who visited in past 24 hours
pop up box when receiving PM
Resizing of Posted Images
chatroom

are all modifications

is there any features that are important you in the day to day use of the forum?

and is there any features that would be missed if they went?

I think I will have to do this update sooner rather than later!

The PM pop-up is handy. Haven't seen much action in the chatroom...

As long as there's smilies I'm happy :mrgreen:

The resize images thing is pretty darn useful (especially on mobile!).

:D :thumb: :mrgreen:

A button that turns the kettle on would be very useful. as would another that opens and closes the back door for the dog.


cheers.

Upgrade if there is a feature that turns Kawasaki into sinnis whenever Hoggs talks about how much she loves them.

Don't mind!

Will the new version make the website look different?

Hoggs, I've heard black is the new green, or in my case, grey :thumb:
