Updates!

Postby KittyKat » 2006-07-04 16:17

I will be doing a number of updates to the forum in the next few days, so don't be surprised to see some new parts and some old parts! The aim of this is to improve the loading speed of the forum for those users with slow browsers.

If there is any feature you like or don't like, post about it here or PM me in the next few days!

got it KK!
atm i only notice a shout box which for some reason i can't see as it's telling me to enable javascript which should be enabled- but I'm not entierly sure how to enable it
and is a shout box a good idea on such a popular forum? it will be either alot of people having a conversation at once or loads of people having different conversations?

I have added a new skin choser: let me know if it works for you and I will then add more skins. If it does not, I will bring back the old one we had before. Also need to know what kind of skins people would like to see added (ex. light, dark, red and white, etc...)

I use FireFox and Java Script is automatically enables on it. If you use IE, go to help and do a search for "enable java script" and it should give you instructions there.

The shoutbox is here for short comments or off topic discussion... things it's not worth starting topics for! So there shouldn't be too much of a problem with proper discussions starting on there, but even if there is, the topic can be split from the shoutbox into the forum :tup:

I was wondering if the shout box wouldn't be better at the top of the page Kat. :unsure:

I tried it there to start off with, but it took up to much space and slowed down the loading time considerably so untill I can get some more work done on it, it will be at the bottom :) I would like to put it between the forums and the stats for now if I can...

That is strange. :blink:

I didn't think it would make much difference where you put it. But if it is affecting the forum then fare enough. :tup:

It does because everything at the top loads first, so if it is above the forum, the forum does not load untill the shoutbox does.

I've managed to change the shoutbox so that it sets a cookie so that it loads faster and moved it up top. Let me know what you guys think!

Still awaiting feedback re: skin changer.

I think it is better at the top. That way you don't miss any messages. :tup:

I will go try the skins now for you. :)
