    How does one remove their vote from a poll, if they change their mind?

    Seems that will not be possible at the moment.
    The ability to change vote in polls was a hack, which might not be compatible with the new forum version.
    I will investigate alternatives, but haven't found one so far.
    Franck.

    There's an A.P.P. for that!

    thanks for that. Still hoping that recent posts will make a reappearance as that is the one I used the most

    Ah I see you can "Like" (so it links to Facebook) individual threads.

    What's less obvious is how you "Unlike" them (you click the Like button again, but I searched for "Unlike" for some time before finding this out).

    At last links are now shown in traditional blue, so no need to do this manually, and perhaps I shan't miss any in future.

    Aghh went away for a week and come back to a whole new forum. I'm sure I'll love it in time but for now

    You might want to explore:
    1. Select 'Home' on the top left
    2. Select 'Forum' next to the 'Home' link you just clicked
    3. Look on the next row down and a little to the right, and select 'Forum Actions'
    4. In the drop-down menu that appears, select 'General Settings'
    5. Scroll to the bottom, and in the 'Miscellaneous Options' section is a drop-down selection box labelled 'Forum Skin'.
    6. Try the 'Calm Blue' and 'Clear Green' options and see if you like them more than the 'Guantanamo Orange' default
    7. Under no circumstances try the 'Mobile' option. I just selected this, and I'm going to have to hunt down the relevant cookie and bludgeon it to death with a heavily modified wooden club with rusty nails sticking out of it

    Re: Testing new upgrade

    I've moved a bunch of posts across from Lory's test thread into this thread - partly because I think that's where they belong, and partly to make sure the Mod stuff still works for me.

    You click the Like link again and it removes it. Took me a while to find it....

    Doesn't work for me either - I get an error message. I used the browser's Back button to get back to a screen from which I could change it back (using the link at the bottom of the page).

    Having found out deleting cookies doesn't fix this, I've, erm, cheated. To get back to the relevant page (and to shortcut steps 1..4 above) go to:

    (you'll need to be logged in)

    Yes, I haven't had a chance to explore the new layout deep enough to include those, but that's definitely on my to-do list.

    I have activated the mobile style, but as has been pointed out by cederic, it's not great so far. It works ok on my phone and is much lower bandwidth, but it has a few bugs, including the inability to revert to another style if you pick it on your computer.

    You can revert to the default (orange) by clicking on http://forum.cerocscotland.com/index.php&styleid=-1

    As has been pointed out, you can now choose from 2 or 3 different colour schemes by selecting the drop down menu at the very bottom left of any page. We have Happy Orange, Calm Blue or Green Clear. If anyone has a particular colour scheme that would help them to conceal the forum at their work pc, let me know
    Franck.

    There's an A.P.P. for that!

    Me too. :-)

    Although I was quite fond of the silvery grey old one...

    Re: Testing new upgrade

    I'm liking that the thread titles, which have unread posts in them show up as bold on the page, and then change to normal font when you've read them. It's entirely possible it did that before, and I've only just noticed

    Re: Forum Major upgrade and downtime!

    "100 Experience Points" Do I need to start slaying dragons and hoarding gold?

    Also, in the Statistics tab there is a list of people who have the most Infractions and Referrals. I hope this is a mistake; they're nothing to be proud of.

    The Experience system can be used as a Forum lurker detector. It appears that if you log-in, you get experience. If you look at the list of people who've been awarded experience today, there are several who've never posted.

    On the whole the upgrade looks to have gone very smoothly. No data lost, no downtime, no reduction in functionality. Nice work Franck!
