    If you find anything wrong, something needs explaining or a general issue with the new forum software, please post it here. It will get sorted.

    I have one issue. I used to be able to bookmark the new posts link and go straight to the list. The link has now changed to contain "&contenttype=vBforum_post" and now I can't get straight to the list but am prompted for password. Any idea?

    Admin, any way for you to decide which type of adverts appear where on the page, the side adverts and doing this on some threads.

    I've never used this feature. Where exactly is this link?

    Smithy, where did that image go?

    Edit: Got it, that IS wierd. I presume that's from the bottom of a thread?

    Quite high up actually. Scroll to the right and you'll see it just before a quarter of the way down.

    Nice spot, I'll look at that now.

    I figured it out. When I do a mouse-over on the link for new posts, I get a path which contains the contenttype=vbforum_post. However, removing this I have no trouble. So just me lacking the technical nous to comprehend new things.

    Tag Cloud from the home page- how does it work? I've seen these on other sites and assumed they show commonly or recently posted terms. For me it is suggesting pne and west ham!?

    If you go to the bottom of any thread, any user should be able to add "tags" to the thread. A tag is a way of describing parts of that thread in 1 or 2 words for an easier way of finding threads than using search functions. For example you might want to tag this thread new or software or even bugs. Try it and see if it pops up on the tag cloud, then click the word and see where it takes you.

    With the 'Orns on the old forum, they went up when you posted something, made a thread etc. This doesn't seem to be happening with the vCash.

    Not yet. The cash is ONLY there to bet with on VBookie events. We will get a decent money system in place soon enough, but we need to iron out the bugs first.

    Definitely a cookie thing. As al last resort clear your cookies, reboot and login again.

    Small thing, that might not actually be anything. When you click on the little hotlink at the top of the thread to get back to the homepage or sub-forum, when you click on, it actually takes you to the sub-forum, whereas before it took you to the homepage. Or at least I think it did. Apologies if that's how you want it to be.

    The Film You Recently Watched Part 2 thread has been closed. Is there a Part 3 starting?

    Looks good Admin and co. Glad to see it all has gone as planned.

    I haven't found any bugs with it yet, but out of interest - is the "Version 2" bit underneath on the header, going to be staying there?

    For a simple soul like me, can we have a complete idiots user guide, as I am having difficulty?

    That's strange as none of us has closed it, and using the test account will let me reply to it. Can you try again?
  26. Defunct

    Not for long, no.

    There is a "Frequently asked questions guide" here.

    I can't find a link to the old quiz. Has that gone or am I just being thick?

    On another forums I frequent, which seemed to use the same forum software as we did previously, there used to be a spoiler tag.
    Enter text you don't want people to see without clicking on the spoiler button
    It was good for hiding things that were maybe NSFW or side points that you could read if you wanted to but were not critical to the post. If you then clicked the spoiler button it would show them in the post.
    Can we get this following our upgrade?
  29. berkshirehorn

    berkshirehorn presumably I upset/disappointed someone

    you've probably covered it elsewhere and i missed it but no more arcade or casino then?

    and no link to the quiz?

    i know, i'm sad.

    It's gone for now. Moog ran the quiz, if he thinks it should come back then I will make it happen. There is also a quiz type plugin for this software which I'll look into.

    I like the sound of that, let me look into it in the week.

    The arcade is coming back for sure, but as it's quite a complicated setup we wanted to be certain the forum is bug free first. The casino will be back in one form or another, but we need to look into which is the best one.

    Evetually yes.
