Post Counts should be correct

Only flagged topics were counting to your post count. I updated the settings and I believe that new posts will again start counting to your total, unless I missed one.

Clear Browser Cache

Hi,

If you're still seeing the blue at the top of the Agora, try following the instructions on this page:

The header should look like this:

Re: Upgrade for Alpha Agora

No status change 10:40 am Saturday. Nada, nil, nihil, nix Hi, You never answered my question about which browser you are using. I'm seeing avatars and posts across all the browsers that I'm able to test with, even when I'm not logged in. The biggest help would be a screenshot. Anything that's e-mai...

Site Header

Hi, I just wanted to point everybody's attention to the new site header - this is different from the old version: http://www.alphadictionary.com/~ashaffer/siteheader.png There are some features that I think people have been looking for: * The "(0 Unread Messages)" which shows you your PMs ...

Re: Avatars should be back up, other news.

Hi,

If you're encountering display issues: what web browser are you using?

I've upgraded the site and redone some of the color styling, so it should be mostly green/brown/tan now to match the rest of the site, although there is some blue left over.

Re: Avatars should be back up, other news.

The above half-dozen or so posts are blank. No avatars, mine or anyone else. When was the last time you looked? I'm seeing your "guy with a ukulele" icon. Which web browser are you using? Do you know how to send a screenshot? The email issue is something that came along with the new serve...

Re: Avatars should be back up, other news.

If "Disable BBCode" is unchecked, the BBCode is enabled. It might in fact be a thread thing (I'm logged in as my administrator user, so it might be different for me.)

Re: Avatars should be back up, other news.

The phpBB search box is at the top to the right of the "Alpha Agora" logo. (Little magnifying glass in a box.) Also, look for the "Disable BBCode" checkbox at the bottom if you want the URL, bold, etc. to work. It will be blue until I can restyle it. There is a "View your po...

Re: Avatars should be back up, other news.

Yes, I received your PM. Also, do you know how large your avatar image was? The default size was maxed out at 80x80. I've upped the maximum size to 100x100, so if your avatar is smaller than that, give it another try.

Re: Avatars should be back up, other news.

Hi, Were you searching from the home page, or from the phpBB search box, which is now in the blue box at the top? The two search engines are different. One ties to Google and searches most of the site, and the other is built in to phpBB. I was able to find your suggestion with the phpBB search engin...

Re: Avatars should be back up, other news.

Hi, If your BBCode isn't working, make sure that you have "Disable BBCode" unchecked at the bottom of the post window (under Options.) I think that might have been part of the problem posting quotes and urls. There are also "Notify me when a reply is posted" options at the bottom...

Re: Avatars should be back up, other news.

I would ask that everybody please be patient. I will be working on things this weekend. I have a day job, and busy evenings. Please let me know what isn't working, but note that I certainly don't appreciate ad hominem comments. I tried to get the site back up and running as fast as possible with sty...

Re: Avatars should be back up, other news.

I think what I'm going to do is re-create the template from scratch this weekend. I tried to get it online by modifying the old template, but that seems to have been causing problems. So there might be some wonkiness this weekend as I make changes to things.

Avatars should be back up, other news.

Hi, When we upgraded the board software (which was necessary for security and was about five years overdue), a lot of the settings reverted to their default values, and I'm finding them one by one and fixing them. Avatars should be back up, and as I have time I'm reintroducing some of the customizat...

Administrative Email Address Changing

Hi, I just wanted to let everybody know that, in order to better organize my email traffic, I'm shortly going to be changing the board's administrative email address to bbadmin [at] lexiteria [dot] com so if you have my original email address in any sort of spam filter, you'll want to add the above ...
