2021 First update

Post by MountainManJoe »

Hello folks. Just a quick update:

I finally got around to updating the forum software. We are now powered by the bleeding edge of forum technology :muhaha:

I also discovered that incorrect email settings were the cause of the errors when private messaging, and starting new posts. I fixed that as well. So you should all be having a buttery smooth forum experience now. If you notice any issues, please let me know!

I have more improvements in store, so stay tuned.

Happy 2021 everyone!
:cheers:

You should now see a "thumbs up" icon in the button toolbar on every post (except your own). It's a convenient way to agree with, or show your gratitude for a post that you found helpful.

I have added more functionality. You can now copy+paste almost any kind of link and the content will be embedded directly into your post.
Just use the media embed button.

Examples:
- Youtube video
- Tweet
- Facebook post.
- News article
- Google document
- Imgur link
etc ...
the full list

I have installed additional color schemes for you to choose. Maybe something a little darker would be easier on the eyes?

To change it, hit your user picture in the top corner, select 'User Control Panel', and then 'Board Preferences'.
Or click here.

Enjoy.

I have managed to revive the old tech gallery. Looks like some helpful photos in there.
Click "Tech Gallery" in the main bar at the top of the page.
