New Format

This new forum format is a case of breaking something that is not broken.

Here is what I have found that either has problems or I do not like.

#1 Its incredibly slow to refresh.

#2 The left  and right sides of the screen takes up valuable real estate for those of us that keep multiple windows open.

#3 The size of the postings takes up too much room in the middle.

#4 I have had many messages that the database cannot be accessed.

#5 When I did a preview, not only did it no preview, but it wiped out what I had typed.

Dolly,

We are still trying to quantify the problem of ur landing point on the forum after u post a comment i.e. one should land on the comment u just posted.

We have so far determined that it works perfectly with Firefox & Internet Explorer ver 7. IE6 seems to be a problem, although we are getting mixed messages.

If u have already downloaded IE7, I would suggest using that(for other reasons as well , apart from this forum). Even better would be Firefox :)

Dolly, IE 6 was the browser that was causing the most problems, but we tested it on IE 7 as well and it was working very well.  I'll ask admin about your problem Smiling

When you post a comment, you should automatically 'land' on the page your new comment is on. We tested that with different browsers and different settings, and it worked. 

If it doesn't work for you, please let us know which browser and version you are using and which settings (oldest or newest first, how many comments per page) you have chosen.

Thank you Katja....

Not understanding how to post was my big obstacle, and now that maxx got me sorted out in that regard things will be fine.  I will work on the other things, and if I can't figure them out, then knowing I can ask here is very helpful......thanks again.

Having solved that dilemma for me, can you now point me to the "How To Use This" section.....?

Hello Lily,

There is no 'Forum FAQ' page at the moment but Africam is working on one.

For the time being, you can post your "how to... " questions here.

Well...I don't know where such a section is...I never looked for one to be honest....

 

Forums are pretty much second nature to me....so I haven't experienced the trouble that many are having, I just sort of felt my way around and found everything I needed....Cool

There are a number of things I would like to see changed, so I am waiting for the techies to do their thing to the forum code..
