John - Is there no end to your talents? Thank you again for responding to one of our many little requests that probably require a lot of work.

Another minor update today in response to feedback. There is a new dropdown menu under the image at the top right of the main page just below the 'View posts since last visit' where you can select to 'View all posts' in the specified period which you can select from the dropdown list.

I don't exactly cry buckets - just swear at myself (inside my head of course). I regularly have several things open at the same time, and often close the wrong one!

I used to run a heavily hacked version of PHPBB2 (although you wouldn't believe it what with my memory Embarassed ) and I know what it's like having to try and get it working correctly for all the different browsers out there.

The emoticon bug fix will be heartily welcome... so to celebrate how about adding a few more to the extra page Wink

Nice one John... and also on having a really good name too Laughing

Since I'm back at work tomorrow this is the last update in the current batch. BBF 1.11.0 was just released which was an upgrade to the forum attachment code. This is more of an internal upgrade than something user visible so I hope you will not notice any changes.

Thanks John

You may be "back at work" but it appears you've been "working" all over the Christmas break. Cool

Yes, John, well done!

Thanks very much

Once again the forum has been upgraded. Sorry for the 3 who were online at the time. I hope you figured out what was going on and having to login again was not a problem.

The first part of the upgrade was to apply some fixes to the forum and attachment software.

The second part of the upgrade was to make some changes to protect your privacy and to attempt to protect us from people signing up to advertise their commercial web sites.

Although guests have not been able to look at the memberlist they have been able to view the profiles. Only registered users can now view profiles.

You may or may not have noticed but we have started to attract spammers who register simply to advertise their products and web sites. This update attempts to hinder people who use programs to automatically sign up and hides certain information to make this less attractive to them.

Only time will tell if this works or not.

Please report any problems you experience with this upgrade.

John

Thanks for doing something to deter the Spammers - they were getting rather frequent last week.

Another minor upgrade which you will hopefully not notice (if I've done my job correctly that is). Only the really astute will notice a couple of minor cosmetic fixes in the photo album.

Once again I'm afraid this update will force you to login again. Use the "I forgot my password" link if you forgot your password.
