Feb 10 Updates!

Postby LePaul » February 10th, 2016, 10:32 am

Hi friends!

So I made a few minor changes to the layout. I wanted to keep the list of forum categories short but decided the "News and Announcements" and "Feedback.." forums needed better visibility. I wanted everyone to see I am finding things that need tweaking and working to resolve them.

Again...I remind you all...it has been many years since I was the admin of a web forum! Your patience, good humor...and suggestions are appreciated.

Today's to do list...

Fix Private Messaging - Done (Users were stuck in Newly Registered. Code change fix)
Hide User emails - Done
Adjust layout for News & Announcements - Done

Would like to do...

User profile shows type of 3D printer they own

That's all for now!

Uploaded a 'favicon.ico' file...a favorite icon for the web browser. I couldn't find anything really 3D printer related so I stuck to an image of a gear...since like a gear, our 3D printing minds are always working :)

Nice :-)

Would it be possible to make web-links open in a new tab by the way, or can I change that in my settings?

Looks like a known issue. Best work around is right-click and Open in new Tab for now

Thank you for your suggestion.

I inquired with the crew at phpBB and they suggested an extension that seems to work quite well!

Try it out
