Hi everyone,

As you can see the forum has had a face lift. We had received feedback about the length of the page and when we wanted to add the Views field this made the LHS section toooooo long. We believe it is much better now.

In adding the views field I also decided to make some updates to the database that runs the forum. Last night at 1AM EST I stopped the forum system and downloaded, rearranged the database and sent it back to the production server. The forum was back online at 4AM EST (yes it was a late night). These changes not only give us the Views information but also the ability to store and access the forum information by exact time. I also compacted and optimised the 100MB file.

The Members show updates since last logon function will show you exactly what has changed since you last visited ExplorOz. Even if you only go away for 1 hour it will show you only the updates in the last hour. Have a look at your My Home page and click on the forum New Updates link. If you are not a member and visit the site often this feature alone will save you over the cost of membership in your time.

We hope you like these changes and rest assured a few more Page Sponsors in the forum will assist in continuing development. Please make sure you visit and use our site Page Sponsors as results to these guys will means results to all of us.

Enjoy.

What a trooper.
Amazes me all this IT stuff.
What did we do before.
Oh yes, sat around and talked to each other and read a few books.
Well we still talking to each other I suppose.

David,

it is growing on me but can you make the numers and the none for viewings, responses etc., be in a bold lettering as the key is please when you have the opportunity. I find the key easy to read but the numbers a little more difficult even with the glasses on..........
Cheers,
Who?

This can be done John - I also think it may be better - I will have a look locally and see if I can get it past the Content Director.

It has just been pointed out to me that I wrote:

Have a look at your My Home page and click on the forum New Updates link

The link I am refering to is the same old "View the New Details" link in the Updates forum section. It is not a new link or button sorry if this has confused.

"Judith! They've shifted the furniture on us while we were away!"

"Well Willie" says Judith......"Out with the old, in with the new darling. You are going to have to buy that new 4 x 4 you've been looking at, and GIVE the orange beast to Wolfie"

"Okay, I'll Mem Mes Wolfie and tell him he can come up and pick up the........."

Sorry, getting carried away again.......

Cheers
