    One of the things that has changed in the new version is that user names and display names are now one and the same thing. Previously you might have logged in using one name but another name would displayed on the forum. We made the decision to stick with user names during the upgrade, as going with display names would have meant you wouldn't have been able to use your old login details! If you would like for your username to be changed, please pm me and I will make the necessary changes.

    Pressing it will do a refresh, if there is nothing more to display it will then say so

    Thanks Rob, I know. I am just confused as to why, at the same resolution I am getting different results. Something for me to ponder, may just need to rejig the banner, needs redoing anyway to correct the typo. EDIT: Actually, rejig of the banner is the right thing to do, so have done it.

    Thanks Rob, is it possible for you to send me a screenshot of what you are seeing on your ipad? I would have expected you to get the mobile site

    hmm, that is odd. I have tried dropping my resolution to that and the site does as it is meant to and makes things fit. Will have a think on it...

    Let me know if you want it tweaked further. The bits I have done so far are a quick fix, but I can dive into the code and change the areas that are still white/light to darker if need be?

    That sounds like it is to do with your screen resolution, what is yours set to?

    Scroll to the bottom of the forum, select themes and select Dark Theme, let me know what you think. The main thread bit is the same as this but background etc it darker. I can make more changes if needed, but they wont be as quick.

    FORUM UPGRADE COMPLETE

    The long awaited forum upgrade is complete. I have started a thread for feedback and suggestions, so that we can keep them all in one place, here: We will continue to provide updates to you all on this post. There is still work on going but rather than delay things further we wanted to get the site back to you. Below you will find useful information about the new site and we will add to this over time. User / Display Name One of the things that has changed in the new version is that user names and display names are now one and the same thing. Previously you might have logged in using one name but another name would displayed on the forum. We made the decision to stick with user names during the upgrade, as going with display names would have meant you wouldn't have been able to use your old login details! If you would like for your username to be changed, please pm me and I will make the necessary changes. Mobile View The way the sites mobile view works has changed, however you can still switch between the full site and mobile view quite easily, links to instructions on how to do this are below: iPhone / iPad - https://www.cnet.com/how-to/how-to-force-your-iphone-or-ipad-to-load-the-desktop-version-of-a-website/ Android - https://www.cnet.com/how-to/how-to-request-desktop-version-of-a-web-site-in-chrome-for-android/ Membership changes We are now able to offer all members a full 12 months membership from the day they join! Ideally all members will purchase their membership using the subscription option at the top of the forum when their renewals become due, but we will still be able to process manual memberships where required. Merchandise Store I am pleased to also be able to announce the launch of our new merchandise store, which offers a range of goods including t-shirts, hoodies, caps etc. all of which can printed or embroidered! To access the store just click the store button at the top of the page and it will open in a new window. (N.B Embroidered isn't available just yet, but will be very soon.) Community User Access An outstanding action point from the 2017 AGM was to address community user access, I am pleased to say the upgrade allows us to do that, and community users are now only able to post 5 times per day. We will keep the restrictions on community users under review and adjust accordingly. New Member Map Only accessible to full members the new member map is to be found by clicking Portal and then Member Map. Unfortunately the plug-in used for this before is no longer compatible with the latest forum software, so we have moved to a new alternative, this means the map is almost completely empty, so get adding yourselves!
  14. The forum software that we currently use is long overdue an update, and I am pleased to say that this will be taking place in the near future. This will mean that the forum will be out of action while the upgrade work is undertaken. A large part of the upgrade work is being undertaken by our software providers who are unable to give a definitive date as to when they will undertake their share of the work, only that it will be within the next three weeks. During the outage we will keep members updated via the facebook group - https://www.facebook.com/groups/514980222217443/ Please expect the forum to be out of action for a couple of days when the upgrade takes place.
