Bug & Ideas Report

Postby Activity_Dept » Fri Sep 17, 2010 11:59 am

Please post bugs, concerns and ideas here.

Current list:
Would like auto login:
currently reviewing security issues will report back in a few weeks.
Removal of old user name field in login: this will be removed after a month or two as people have had the opportunity to update their account.
Rationalizing of Threads: considering this however I do note many are getting used but may put stevo on this for his comments.
Not load images on login page: being reviewed, we are also looking at not sending you back to home page if login from forum.
Business account upgrades: we have a number of parks and companies upgrading their accounts on the site however we are still working on a few issues there so please be patient with us we hope to have these fixed and you up and running by around the 22nd Sept.
New ideas welcome.

Thank you :cheers
The admin guy.

Hi Gypsylady,

We have looked at that one both on our admin and also on the PHPbb and we cannot find that option. Can you show me an example of a PHPbb forum that allows that.
Thank you
The admin guy.

And getting the below message on a regular basis.
Information
Sorry but you are not permitted to use the search system.


Andrew....this very site used to have that feature before it was upgraded....

You'd go to View New Posts and after you’d posted and viewed what you had posted you still had the View New Posts option available without having to go back to the Board Index twice before being able to use the View New Posts option again.

Simon a (aka welder.man) is also having login problems and is unable to use his original login name. I suggested that he PM you about it Andrew.

Hi Gypseylady,

Simon had the wrong email address, he is OK now. Thank you.

Perhaps the forum did have it however the upgraded vrs of the PHPbb does not appear to offer it. If you can find me an example perhaps I can hack it in but we went to PHPbb and they do not have it nor has a few other we looked at so like I say if you can find me an example we can probable do it.

I tested your permissions and could not replicate the search issue when do you get it when you use the search?

Yeah i can't see that "new posts" option on my test site either, so it could be a template thing or it's just not in the upgrade.

I think the error "Sorry but you are not permitted to use the search system."
that gyspy is getting may be because of a bad link?

I get that message when i use this url ( i made it up), so, it could explain that it gives that message when it doesn't like the address that is beng used.

Where do i start with this one? :lol:

I just counted 42 boards in total, and roughly 12 that get some frequent use. I'd be keen to make some changes but it'd be hard to get changes through if it has to go through the forum committee! :booty

How about something easy and pretty for now?
swap over the little board icons, green for read and orange for unread "new posts"
example...(but your design team might do a better job)

I get it if I sit in the posted area for a while and try to go back to the Board Index in order to get the the Board Index again.....I can go back and forwards and get past the error message but it is annoying the number of 'clicks' and mouse action required to get into the forum to start with.

Maybe Steve is on the right track here Andrew...

I personally don't like the 'orange' colour....the green is ok.....but get rid of that terrible boring orange...make it a bold colour...easy to see.

The little tent icon should be a bolder colour too.

back the truck up GP! It's just an example!

I just thought the existing ones aren't that great and new ones that have the websites theme might be cool.

But yeah, have a plain colour for the topics that have been read, and a brighter colour for the "new posts", so it more obvious , for people like me anyway.
