TLO Site Upgrade - Work In Progress

The site has been upgraded to the latest core engine of vBulletin. This step was necessary for security as well as a natural progression of integrating new features. However, it does involve a protracted process of tweaking in order to fully accommodate various modules and customizations. Therefore, do not be alarmed if functionality is temporarily restricted for some elements or if graphics and layout are not conforming well. I do ask that members call to attention any anomalies that may be noticed. For now, the Autumnal and iLigotti styles have been disabled, but they will return soon enough.

Re: TLO Site Upgrade - Work In Progress

This will suffice as a running list of anomalies to address as a result of the recent upgrade:
  1. Background Missing From Post Icons
  2. Online FlashChat List Not Functional At Portal Page
  3. Smilies Reverted to Original in lieu of Custom Squares
  4. Large Profile Images Distort New Profile Layout
  5. Forum Icons Not Defaulting to New Custom Images
  6. Force Signature to Bottom of Page
  7. Conform and Reinstate Autumnal and iLigotti Styles
  8. Center Logo Images and Reinstate Portal Link
  9. Internet Explorer Page Width Issue on Portal
  10. Reinstate Live Sortable Columns at Tables
  11. Quote Tags Without User/Post Reference Breaking Post Format

Re: TLO Site Upgrade - Work In Progress

I had a bit of difficulty logging into the site a few hours ago.

But it seems OK now.

Over six hours ago? Please let me know if it was since then, as I placed a fix that should have made things right about 6-7 hours back.

I think so. But I'm not 100% sure. I find the time on this site a bit confusing. It doesn't agree with my watch very well.

No - now it is agreeing with my watch. But I don't think it was yesterday. I'm becoming more confused than ever. Help!!

As a member, you can set your time zone here:
User Control Panel - Edit Options
This setting is located near the bottom of the page. Once set correctly, all time references should correspond to your locality thereafter, as long as you remain logged into the site.

Thank you for that Dr B.

I'm pleased to report that everything now seems hunky dory with the way this board is working. Or maybe I should have saved posting that for the Happy Happy Joy Joy thread I'm thinking of starting. ;)

You and I, Dr B, seem to be the only two to post to this thread. What's that about? Does no one else care whether the board is functioning properly? Are the others so full of doom and gloom that it doesn't seem to matter? Do they not even notice when it seems awry?

Re: TLO Site Upgrade - Work In Progress

Many members comment in the chatbox (at bottom of the main page of TLO) about such matters as the working of the site and they also often make positive, cheery messages there, too. Of course, one wonders if this cheeriness hides the darker thoughts they devote to the main threads?

Re: TLO Site Upgrade - Work In Progress

Chatbox??????? I haven't noticed that. I think that there used to a comic for young children called Chatterbox. And my junior school teacher said that Iris Choat was a chatterbox.
