A major site upgrade is planned to take place during the quiet hours tonight

This is a once every 2 or 3 years type upgrade, so there may be a bit of chaos afterwards while clean things up, hopefully be just for a hour or so all being well

Once we are on the other side of the upgrade, I will use this topic to pass on details and such things that you may need to know to ya all

cheers

to save time , will post about a few things now

all should be in place  after the upgrade eg tomorrow

1. anonymous login

this option/choice will move to settings - basically from ticking every login you will now set it up once and then thats that till you change your mind

2. log in via apple to be added

once upgrade is 100% plan is to add this login method 
once enabled users will be able to sign in using their Apple ID and all the convenience that brings. Touch ID and Face ID is supported natively where available and works across all your devices.

3. Topic List View

For the topic list view, a choice for a new 'expanded' view mode, which displays a snippet of the first post.

4 Topic Activity

A new Topic Activity sidebar. This acts much like a summary of activity within the topic. It very quickly lets you know how old the topic is and how long it has been since the last reply and such

other stuff

Notifications

notifications have been simplified, to make it clear what notifications are available and which you have enabled.

Marking as solved - returns

members will be able to mark topics solved - may be useful for box questions or  want type forums

Performance Improvements

under the hood stuff

Layout 

improvements inc wider desktop view, overall a leaner and cleaner view with some options moved such as 'share' moved to under a link

Tag Autocomplete
added a search box to make it easier to find a single tag from a list of potentially hundreds.

Embedds

Tik Tok embed added to embed list .. Spotify, YouTube etc etc if needed it's there

quick heads up, more to follow once upgrade complete

Hi Mike

Looking good. The only thing is the font size is tiny when you click on an actual post from the new content list. Might just be when viewing on mobile? I'm on a Samsung S10e 

Thanks!

Just one minor thing that I'm sure you'll have on your list of things to tidy up, Mike, and that's the 'mark all as read' function. It's something I use on practically every visit, but no big deal.

I checked the desktop tick link and all seems to work fine on both ipad and pc here, have increased the margin just in case that was the issue

any joy with it now?

 
 
 

Still not working for me on both devices. I cleared cookies on both and deleted cache on the desktop, but that's made no difference.

 

site note

question now resolved and split to a new topic here
