Hey guys,

If I get a chance I will probably upgrade the forum to the latest version either tonight or tomorrow night.

The site will be down for perhaps 4 hours during the upgrade.

I will make the changes in stages. First I will update the forum.

Then I will add on a photo gallery module.

Then a blog module. Though I have not decided whether this will be available to everyone or not. I have to play around with it first to see how it works!

Then I will add on an article system as well.

Hopefully it will all go smoothly!!!

Have a good one!!!

Glen

Hi Iblis, I will probably call it a day in a second since I have been at it for a few hours now and my eyes are hurting.

I wish I understood xhtml better! It was driving me up the wall just to set the width of a table! Took me an hour!

Cheers, Glen

I sympathize with you, glen. What you're experienced last night is pretty much what every day at work is like for me. :-)

and if you have any trouble using it, please let me know and i will try and help as best i can :)

have a great day!

Hi Glen.

Looks like you have done a mammoth task extremely well!
Brilliant!
Just for me I seem to have lost my avatar. Well that gives me a chance to update anyway.
So just relax for a few days and let things settle.:officechair:
Seems like a lot of emoticons have died as well.
No big deal!

Oh is the time set correct or is it me?
Seems about one hour fast?

You can now select a "mobile" skin that should be good for hand help devices like iphones and the like. If anyone has such a device please give it a whirl and let me know how it goes!

See in the bottom left corner to change the skin.

Great idea, glen. I sorta wish i had a mobile device to test out the new skin. Web sites accommodating mobile devices is a commendable initiative.

Yeah I had a guy asking me for a mobile skin only a couple of weeks ago!

Hopefully he can give me some feedback as to whether it is any good! :)

Hi Iblis.

To have a different defult font would be nice for sure.
But I don't see how if at all you can do it.
Even Windows Live Hotmail won't let the user set a new default font.

This is "Impact" Does it have an impact?
