Forum Software update

Post by DLRA » Fri Oct 31, 2014 11:18 am

If you think the forum looks slightly different, your right it does.
Just been upgraded to the latest version.
There seems to be a problem with some of the title variables and hints, will be looking into this now.
Some things have changed location on the page and there is now a "quick links", which contains features I use a lot.
If you see any thing that you think is not right, please leave a note here.

Looks good.

Quick links will be handy.

Just received an update 3.1.1, now installed.
Version 3.1 was a significant update of the software so I suppose you can always expect a few problems.
Seems they haven't got around to fixing their colon yet.....

I suppose we just put up with Colon until the forum gets another update. We can live with it I am sure as I think he is a great bloke.

The new look is rather good. Apart from an excess of COLONS I like it.

I also forgot to point out that from the forum there is still no "Home" button to get back to the front webpage. makes navigating a bit painful (first world problem, I know)

The COLON issue (and some other CAPITALIZED text) is due to some missing entries in your 'language/en/common.php' file, it is likely not up to date.

You can try to re-upload it or add the missing entries manually...

EG: add the following line to the file

'COLON' => ':',

Note that the entries in the common.php file are a comma seperated list, the last entry does not have a comma after it so you will need to add the above line in the middle of the list.

There are also some other entries missing from the list - CONTACT_US / QUICK_LINKS / NOTIFICATIONS are three that I can see.

Pretty sure I've offered in the past - I'm happy to help out with the website admin if you like.

As a reference, here's some of my own sites:

http://fabribles.com
http://type34.com
https://vdubber.com
http://deeemm.com
http://indau.com.au
http://hazcalc.com
http://ohsadmin.com

Shoot me a message if you're interested.

Mick.

G'Day Mick,
Checked the common.php file previously and all the entries are there.
I just don't have the time or knowledge, if you want to give it a go send me a PM and I'll give you the details.

Well done Mick. Many hands as they say and I'm sure GW will appreciate the help.
All us out here think it just happens but I'm damn sure that's not the case.

Chris.

Happy to assist if I can.
