Search function... ditto

No big deal but the ‘Auto Login Each Visit’ feature does not work.

Oversized Image uploading is always an issue. Any way to auto-resize during/after the upload?

And even when images are within the required size specs, they do not scale according to screen size and also drag the text. I run my browser at about 170% magnification. I have to sometimes de-magnify to be able to see the whole thing. This is what I see.

As for search, all forum software are terrible. I just use Google with the tag "site:newcaprice.com". I wouldn't invest too much time or money on it.

I'll add that to the list of things to address when our 3.2 is running stable for a few weeks. There's a ton of mods for this revision of PHPbb, I haven't had a chance to look at 20% of them as of yet. Has to be one already written that all we have to do is plug it in and tell it "INSTALL".

Good call for the list however.

Thanks

ATTENTION - System downtime pending for upgrade

Post by elc32955 » Fri Dec 07, 2018 2:41 am

Hi folks,

This is notification that the New Caprice forum system will be down for a significant system update beginning at 9 AM on Friday, December 7. We can expect the forum system to be fully down for a majority of the day, during this time you may or may not receive a response if you should try to access the system. We are updating the forum software to the current operating revision of PHPbb - this is the 1st major revision to the operating software since the forum system was brought on-line in mid-2013. The basic front end of the system will continue to operate, you just will not be able to access the forums during this time.

As a consequence of this upgrade, the forum will look slightly different when it's brought back on-line. It "should" operate the same as the old forum. All user ID's, passwords, old messages, pictures, and uploaded files will still be there and will work as before. However, there is always the possibility that there will be new quirks or bugs in the updated forum software. If you see anything that's obviously broken or that does not work correctly, please put a message in the "SYSTEM TROUBLE REPORTS" thread. If I can't address or fix it, I'll flag it to our system developer for information/action as appropriate.

We'll be back shortly with a newly upgraded & refreshed forum system. Stay tuned!

Thanks
Eric

System is back up for testing. We had a few wrinkles during the upgrade process, but nothing that couldn't be handled with a few kicks to the front of the server :)

Anyway, the system looks a bit different and just use will have to figure out if we have any bugs.

Thanks

SYSTEM UPDATE COMPLETED

Post by elc32955 » Fri Dec 07, 2018 9:22 pm

Hi folks,

The updates were successfully applied today by our contract developer. So, we're back running more or less as normal. Please note any system problems in the thread provided for us to look at. The look and feel is a bit different, so try out some of the features, get used to the new configuration, let a mod or myself know if you have questions or concerns.

Thanks
Eric

Very nice! I like the new look. Image scaling is working great! No more having to scroll sideways!

Mark all read is also great in the Unread posts. Will make looking for new posts easier. I was also able to get rid of 2 unread PM notifications by using the mark all read there too.

So far, liking the new digs 8-)

I just got forced to re-login after clicking on a topic notification email. This behaviour is random, same as before. It was fine for the first 3 or 4 but I was forced to login on the last one.

Moose take a look at this tab on your profile:

"Manage remember me login keys"

I had about 50 of them in there. Clear them out and see if it helps any, We never had access to that before so maybe they just piled up and we were reaching our maximum not letting any more in there??
