Fresh look for the forums? Yes or No - Thoughts

While I love that the forums are so wondefully "functional" and clear, they are looking a little old and dated these days. I was wondering what you users thought about it all Is it time to bring the look and feel up to the 21st century? Is there functionality you would really like to have?...

Jpeg is fine,

There is a limit on image size, though it is quite large.

So, just try uploading any small image, (you could donwload a little one from the web - it doesn't matter what it is)

I just want to rule that out as a potential problem.

Is the image particularly large?

Could you try with a different image, ideally a small one, just to see?

There are two ways Either use the "IMG" button above the text box, this lets you link to an image already on the web, type in the URL between the IMG markers Or, Use the "Upload Attachement" tab below the text box Once uploaded you can then use the "Place Inline" button...

Yep, after some cleaning up you no longer need to add the /forums to the end of the URL.

You can now go directly to LivingHistory.co.uk to get straight into the forums.

Just a heads up. I am moving the system over to a newer (faster) server this evening.

The system may be down for several hours, so please be patient.
