I noticed the Proboards 'Heads-up' about the forthcoming upgrades, didn't expect such big improvements though!!
Blade - likely just teething but you maybe want to check the images in the news ticker? It could well be me being on firefox but right now they are just showing up as links....
On with the cool stuff: One thing - if anybody's confused about it is the button for 'reply in full' or whatever it was is now the button just saying 'Reply' on the right at both bottom and top of thread. Please don't be afraid to hit it if you want to go into the full editor having already typed a little in the quick box, it works just like the old one! Also note that you can write, post, link, whatever your shiz in the full editor in either BBCode or Preview mode, switching the bottom as suits ya. Sorry if I've patronised anyone - but if it makes life easier..
And AS for the editor - Check out the new COLOUR PALATTE!! Now we can easily write in any colour we choose... Also it 'remembers' recent used colours so you can get your own 'theme' going. And if you're writing in the 'Preview' mode (remember - switch to or from via tab at bottom left of editor) it's way more like editing fonts, quotes, line breaks, lists, links etc in certain Word processing softwares we may all know so well etc so you don't need to write around or in and about codes - I think it's pretty cool - loads more visual and user friendly, and will make tidy or well formatted posts way quicker or easier to put together for the less well experienced forumers amongst us.
And be sure to check the New Smileys out y'all!! There's other cool stuff which is either new or I never knew was on proboards like 'Badges' & the 'Gifts' feature which you can find in profiles! - I got 3 free 'waterbombs' which I plan to chuck at people's avatars unexpectedly... And the best thing? All the old stuff still works, like I can have my wolf thingy if I find it again. Which I plan to.
I've just got one little question: That title banner showing Juanita with her guitar is just stunning. Do you have it in high resolution (good quality)? I'd love to print that as a poster for my living room!
My apologies for the way the board looks at the moment. I've been messing around with the background images and it's gone a bit awry. It used to be dead easy but since Proboards have changed it you have to be an expert in Visual Basic, which I'm not.
Agreed, looking pretty good I think. Pretty sure we're going to have reams of brilliant new photos on the way fairly soon... Not as bad as my not having pinned down where the search function was by memory... Gladly the '50hr-a-week +' life-sink job shall be a chapter closed next Wednesday for me so I can get back into more of a 'routine based' existance.
