Forum upgrade tonight

Post by the289admin »

Hi all,

I've upgraded the forum software tonight, which has taken longer than I had expected. There are still some bits missing (club logo, links on the top navigation bar etc) so please bear with me while I restore those. I will tackle this on Monday when I'm a bit fresher!

Cheers,

Thanks for all the input Andy, hope the on going work is not too strenuous.
Are you able to re instate whether a forum member is a club member. We seem to have lost that detail a while ago.
Best regards

Thanks - still trying to get round to finishing off the work, and they just released another software upgrade this week! Ho hum.

I'll try to get that fixed Peter - thanks for reminding me.

Nice work, but please Sir, can we have the 'Like' button back?

Forum post liking is now back - the old extension was incompatible with the new forum software and no longer updated by the developer, so I've found a new solution. Hope you like it.

Is it possible to disable forum liking for non-members?
“Anonymous” has been liking loads of posts from years ago. 😡

Yeah - I think this is a loophole in the extension I added for the like button. I don't see any options to prevent anonymous users posting, so I opened an issue with the software developer, but that was 6 days ago and no response so far. I'll chase them up, but might have to rethink the 'like' feature.

I take it is still happening? I've not had one for a few days.
