Quick question, when browsing via my iPhone, there's no option to swap to Web View for instance, is that something that will be considered or turned on?

At the moment we are keeping the mobile skin as a mobile skin. Using the web based one causes some issues with templating.
At least this mobile skin is way better than previous one.

Also worth noting some avatars are not showing but I'm assuming that might be down to Photobucket.

Any way to view all members? I can see the option to view online members, but not all.

Some Avatars have been lost as they were not able to be taken across to HTTPS. Couldn't be helped.

With regards to file uploads, am I right in thinking that the user has to manually edit the file size before they can upload? Looks like the forum will resize as it sees fit in terms of resolution, but it won't alter the actual size in MB/KB/Kb of the picture.

 

Not a complaint, more an observation to make sure I understand it correctly. :)

I'll need to get back to you about that. It should resize the actual file size too.

No rush, just playing with stuff. FYI I tried to load a file direct from my PC to see what would happen, it was 1.82MB in size if that matters.

Well done with the forum upgrade looks great!! Do we need to do a gofundme page :) I've started to move my images from Photobucket but there seems to be a limit of 10 image files per album, is that correct? Thanks.

You can't use PB any more, unless you pay $399 for it. This is why the forum upgrade was pushed through a bit sooner :)

 

Basically you'll have to re-up them elsewhere.

If they're being hosted by photobucket then this is likely due to thier change in policy about allowing third party hosting, and not the upgrade to the forum.

I believe you are a paying PB member, so you can try contacting Photobucket to see if they are offering any more info than what has been published so far.

it appears they're working through thier accounts, they've been around for 14 years doing this, so there will be a few to get through. More info from thier own site here.

If you google it, you'll note there's one or two rather upset forums out there.

So it's as easy as that then Not

The forum upgrade has been pushed through because of the PB policy change.
Unfortunately the issue you are experiencing is not because of our upgrade but because PhotoBucket no longer allow images hosted with them to be displayed on third party sites unless you pay their crippling fee.

Imgur in the short term.
We had hoped that the image upload function would allow any size pics to be uploaded and then would auto be resized. But some work still needed on that. We will get there.
Although there are apps you can use which will reduce file size of your images on your ipad quickly, and then they can be uploaded here.

Thanks Lexx I think I will sort it at work with the techies :thumbs:

It's not very slick and does include ads, but this app is free and allows you to make photos smaller on iPad and iPhone.
