so I’ve possibly (finally!) found a more modern forum setup which works nicely, and allows posting of images, works on smartphones etc.
Chris and I have tested it a little and it seems ok, so thought the next step is to get a bit of feedback here.
Please bear in mind this is just a proof of concept, the bunny and budgie are not new branding
Ideally you should be able to register, then head to the “test forum”.
Once there you should be able to make topics and reply to them, as well as include photos/attachments in the posts.
The photos should get automatically watermarked (with a bunny) and the whole thing should work from smartphones too. It works great on my samsung phone and I was even able to post pics too.
If this setup seems like it could work then I’ll figure a way of transferring all the existing posts so we don’t lose anything.
Let me know how you get on
Bunny as in VW Rabbit!
lol well there is that connection i guess
..and it would probs help if I include the url:
I have used IPS/IPB for 15 years and am very pleased but it is a pay service.
I registered the username “Superman” but never got the confirmation email. Please approve my registration. Thanks.
have replied with a PM with login details…
I hate to say this but I have no idea how to access a PM on this forum. I did not know the function existed because I don’t see it anywhere.
btw I have a better long term solution for the email lined up for the test forum, works very well on my other sites, I was just waiting from the account to get approved. will sort that after xmas so the test forum email stuff works properly.
ok so I think i’ve sorted the email out on the new test site. Now it sends through a 3rd party provider which has worked very well for me on other projects.
Jetta GTX since you didn’t get my PM I’ve just deleted the superman account on the test site. Please re-register with the same details and you should be good to go
I registered the name. I did the confirmation email link, and then when I try to log in, I get this…
ok, something’s broken there . I’m doing my end of year accounts atm but am aware there’s an issue and will sort this once I’m done with the beancounting. please bear with me.
Okay, thank you for the help and work for us. No worries, it will be 5 years before I can even begin my project lol.
yikes! even my syncro might be running by then
ok I think I’ve fixed the signup thing & password recovery on the new test forum…let me know if it works (or doesn’t!)
