Forum software has been upgraded to the latest version, but changes will continue during the week - hopefully none will force the board to be offline again.

In security terms there were a lot of reasons to upgrade, but I've already spoted a bug rigth now - using firefox 2, the left box with smiley is not correctly draw, altought it seems to be just fine with Internet explorer 7..

This is more like a visual annoyance, but if anyone else also view similar UI bugs please post them here and I will mention them all on their support center.

Please check if the bugs also appear under IE..

Thanks! :P

I do not see any frames, just one full page.

Will it come later or do I have to do something?

Another thing I've noticed:
In IE, the forum has a cool "Fade" effect when you click links.
That does not appear in Firefox.
Can you possibly make it appear in Firefox? It's such a cool effect it would be a shame for it to only work on IE

And one more issue:

When inside a freshly started Firefox I connect to http://www.boot-land.net/, I get the error:

Fatal error: Call to a member function generate_auto_log_in_key() on a non-object in /home/.fluke/nuno_brito/boot-land.net/forums/sources/classes/class_session.php on line 403


Changing to http://www.boot-land.net/forums brings the well known forum (currently w/o the sidebar).

After that, in a separete tab, http://www.boot-land.net/ connecte correctly to the home page.

Then I'm rather sure that you do not use cookies (because the PC you use does not have cookies personalized to you).
And then the issue is n/a for you.

The fade effect is only available for IE... :P

And the portal hasn't yet be reintegrated inside the forum, will work on it! :P

The forum seems to have returned back to the normal state - applied a few more tweaks to show the users who visited a topic on the current day and a quick listing of similar topics.


Is anyone experiencing any login issues when using IE, firefox, opera?

Thanks! :P

Maybe I did not recognize before, maybe it is new with the new software:

The information at the post's bottom is great! :P

In the 'correlated articles' part I sometimes did not find a logical correlation to the actual post. :P
Who knows how a computer finds correlations between files he does not understand? :P

But most of them are very good detected! :P

And I like to see who did read the post today. :P

Glad you've liked them - the only tough part is that all these mods have to be manually added again after each board upgrade... :P
