Default New forum - report problems here

If you can read this message then your on the new server using new forum software.

Please report any problems with this forum here on this thread.

We now have the ability to attach a file (such as a photo) to your post.

Reminder: photos should not be larger than 800x600. Also, please resize a copy of your photo before uploading it. Try to get it down to 100k. Some new cameras will have photos larger than 3,000k ! ! !

Some forum members use dial-up internet and some use mobile connections. Neither of those user would be able view large (in dimension, and size) photos. Also, I don't want to burn through my allotted server space.

I have upgraded the forum software from phpBB2 to phpBB3. The feature comparisons are listed here:

http://www.phpbb.com/about/features/

Also, we are now on the newest server from the hosting company. New is good but expect some initial glitches as they continue to configure it.

Welcome to the new board!

I've noticed a problem with browser "cookies". The site asks me to log in a second time when I go to the control panel etc.

I think that problem will clear up once I've switch over to using the domain name classbforum.com. Internet browser "cookies" are set to the domain name not the ip address on the forum.

Be sure to take a look at your setting in the User Control Panel. (located near the upper right corner of your browser window)

The are lots of options there: Manage Subscriptions, Manage Bookmarks, Manage Drafts, Edit Profile, Edit Signature, Edit Avatar, Edit Account Settings & more.

On the old forum, links to websites open in a new browser window. On this new forum, links to websites open in the same browser window that you were using.

If you want the link to open in a new window; Right Click on the link and choose "Open in a New Window"

Quote:
Right-clicking is clicking the right mouse button one time. If you right-click on a file or folder, you are presented with a menu of common actions such as Open, Copy, Paste, and Properties. Viewing the properties of a file or folder is how you can learn about the size, location, and creation date (and more). In a web browser, you can right-click on links to save their “target” (what they link to) to your computer, view the location and file size of images, not to mention the ever-useful Copy and Paste.

I tried to move a block of text from your "Coleman Stove" thread to a new thread. I tried using the "quote" function and it addended it to the same thread, even though I thought I'd started a new thread. This is probably my fault, and probably not a legit problem. I probably didn't use "quote" correctly.
Second attempt, I copied and pasted it into a new thread, which worked.

Well, everyone should find the new forum now. I changed the domain nameservers to point classbforum.com to to this address.

You don't have to use the IP address anymore. http://www.classbforum.com or http://www.classbforum.com/phpBB2/index.php should both work. If they don't, give it another day. The nameservers around the world don't update at the same time. It some cases it might take 48hrs.

The avatar galleries are:

Avatars are small images that are displayed below your username on all posts made by you.
