New Forum Installed Can't Post or Reply Privately

Following on from previous threads, new forum software is now installed.
There is still a bit of work to do on it but I thought I would share the url with you just so you can take a look at the new home and in case there are any display issues. Note that you cannot register on it just yet so you cannot post. Your log in on here will not work on the new software.

As I am not going to a game on Saturday I intend to open it up then when you are all at football as this place tends to be quiet. Hopefully by then I will have sorted out the rest of the internal stuff that needs doing. I want to make sure I am able to be online for a few hours when registrations are enabled in case there are problems.

This forum will remain online but will be read only. I will make a sticky on each of the new forum sections linking to the equivalent section on here for ease of use.

New forum is here: https://nonleaguematters.co.uk/forums/index.php

Cheers.... Steve

Just had a peek - shows up fine here at work on IE11. Layout looks familiar, which is a good thing. Look forward to seeing it in action once it goes live. Thanks for all your efforts Steve, they are certainly appreciated.

Seems OK. Ads are a little more intrusive (I understand why they are there). Have spotted the note at the bottom of the page and as a regular user, I might chip in if it removes the ads as they are quite annoying.

Yes an upgrade will remove the ads altogether. I've disabled them for the moment so you can see how the new forum is without them.

Also gives a few other minor benefits such as a longer signature that can include a link, ability to edit own posts for longer, invite more than one person into private conversations ('conversations' replace private messages in the new software) amongst others.

Excellent. As an accountant I'm not one to part with money unnecessarily but that might just be worth the investment. Thanks Steve.

Re: [steve walker] New Forum Installed [In reply to] Can't Post or Reply Privately

New forum looks good to me. A fresh look but familiar enough not to upset users, I think.

One suggestion I have is that rather than just "Main Site" at the top, it could say "Fixtures, Results & Tables" or something similar (if possible). We occasionally get forum messages from people that are clearly unaware of the existence of the main site so using a label something like suggested above would help with this.

I know this could apply to the current forum as well but while we're taking a critical look at things, it's an opportunity to consider this.

Will there still be a restriction on gmail addresses on the new forum?

No. The anti spam features are much more robust

I agree. 1.50 is a small price to pay to avoid unwanted intrusive ads.

Can you do the same on facebook - not that I use it that often (for that reason)
