The software has been updated, we're waiting for Jo to upload the theme.

I think we have a few things to figure out before that gets uploaded. Jerry says that there are few problems that he sees no documentation for yet. Shouldn't take too long though.

Freak, you backed the board up yet?

Jerry did it right before he updated, IIRC... but I'll do it again.

I just did a backup, not sure where it went though... or how to change that.

Looks like some images are broken, hopefully Jo can fix that when he gets back.

There's a few things that work in the dev region that aren't functioning properly in the production copy of the board. Ragabash cannot find them, but when Jo comes he can show Raggy what we are missing. Things like the Dune font on the main board page, and the category images, and stuff like that. Mostly bells and whistles that Jo figured out how to do.

I love the board theme. The one comment I have is that the one nice thing about the old blue theme is that it was extremely easy to see which categories had unread threads; they were illuminated bright red, which was a big contrast. Since upgrading to the tan theme a while back I've found it difficult to visually see which categories have new posts to check out.

I had that problem too. But with this theme up in the top right is a "Quick Links" button. The "New Posts" choice under that tab give you all of the posts that have been added since your last visit.

Yep. Waiting to talk to Jo to see if he has some code for that somewhere, before we go tweaking his skin.

Well, it has taken a while, but Ragabash is slowly figuring out all of the tweaks and gimmicks that Jo put into this board. Jo was totally self-taught on phpBB, and according to Raggy, "it showed." Meaning that Jo left us a lot of great stuff, but coded it really weirdly, and hid it all over the place.

Hopefully you can see some of the recent improvements to layout around here. If you look at the main page, you will see he is still in the process of converting all of the main forums to a standard layout. the header on the subboards has been fixed too, and hopefully all of the smileys are available to everyone now.

As you go through the board, please let me know if there are things that need tweaking. There have been and will continue to be a ton of little changes that you may not even notice. but if you do see something that looks broken, please alert me here.

Freak, may be a good time for you to back this up locally again.

One question, does anyone have numerals in the Dune font? Kull Wahad! is no longer around, and I don't have an email for Dunefish.

Thanks!
