You might need to re-create your signature.

As for smilies, :evil: :lol: :twisted: :neutral: :idea:
Well some of them seem to work.
They're enabled.
I really have no idea though. We'll need a few mods who know what they're doing to tweak some of these little bits & pieces I think.

signatures, smilies and active topics

Post by pitrack_1 » Wed Sep 19, 2018 1:54 am

Hello admin! I notice it's you first post, so welcome! :lol: (although it lists you as being a member since 2005)

Actually, just noticed it came across. Peoples, you'll need to activate your signatures by going into "User Control Panel" -> Board Preferences -> Edit posting defualts and turning "Attach my signature by default:" to "On". I think you may need to resubmit your signature as well (in "User Control Panel" -> Profile -> Edit Signature)

That's OK, just trying out the ones that didn't list with an actual icon.

As this is the sandbox for a new site perhaps we can list some of the little idiosyncrasies to be worked out? Like:
  • the "active topics" link doesn't return anything either logged in or as a guest (changing time limit doesn't help).
  • Latest posts link works but you need to be logged in... any chance of having it available for guests, similar to the old site's "Today's posts"?

    Thanks,

    Patrick.

I am somewhat happy that the main issue here seems to be exactly which emoticons work and which don't :)

Nope. Checked your user settings??

PS: mine’s not showing up anymore either - I had to manually select the “show signature” option below the new reply window.

Testicles 1, 2 ...3!

Who is the admin/mod team?
Does Brett have anything to do with the new site or has this been created by someone else?

Andrew_T is the captain. I’ll let him lay it all out as I’m not completely in the loop.

Hello. I am sponsoring and providing hosting services, and also converted the old forum into this new up-to-date platform, which included importing all existing posts, user accounts etc.
This forum doesn't have any dependency on Brett. He does still has an old copy of the old forum running (which is missing the last few years of posts) at ausubaru.com for some reason.
As all the same user accounts were brought across to here, whoever was previously a moderator should still be a moderator - including Brett. Although I don't think any of them are really active. I do the best I can keeping an eye on things every few days.
