Exactly, I wanted to suggest, less white space - and see more of the faces.
You're doin' too much, do less.

Nope. I like white space, and I like its use on the header banner - It's not changing.

The white space is where the musical magic floats between the two wise heads.

Hmm, admin doesn't agree with users? Sounds like this board needs some 'freedom' :-)

(Just kidding, we love it of course)

Soz for the bumpiness this evening. Tried something major, major went bad.

PHP machine died.
I sighed. Server sighed.
Luckily the backup replied:
"Well you tried. and I'll fix all with pride"

So I just did a mini [security] change instead. That went better.

A recent update imposed by our hosts to the version of PHP killed our server (or more likely was just waiting for a machine reboot). Back now with all gusto. apologies.

Hey everyone ! Back from the dead..... (thanks Ross for the heads up last night)

Due to security reasons our hosts updated all the back end tech gubbins that are used for this forum (and ilovecubus). Unfortunately it completely broke the now decade old (doesn't time fly!) board. Spent a frantic morning rebuilding from scratch (the only thing that 'survived' was the database (i.e. user details and posts)), and now we're on the very latest version of the forum software. Everything should now work at least! None of the custom mods I installed are usable at the moment so things might look and function a little 'generic' at the moment (two mods missing at the moment on this version of the software are the announcement bit at the top and the 'Galaxial Pharmaceutical' custom topic order ... as soon as they're ready I'll put them back on :) )

I'll try and return things as best as possible to how they were (at least how I remember they were !)

All the previous mods are now back in place ....Plus some bonus goodies !

URL links to some media sites eg Youtube and Soundcloud should now autoparse without needing to do any fancy bbcode hacking shenanigans... eg:

Code: Select all

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ro5S9Mak6rE
becomes


Code: Select all

https://soundcloud.com/fsol-digital-recordings/the-electric-brain-storms-document-twelve
becomes



However that does mean the existing posts need rebuilding to the new way of posting media. Currently working on that one ...

UPDATE: Old Youtube and Soundcloud posts should now be back in action again... That was a bit more involved than I was expecting :shock:

Ah amazing, cheers Pete! That should make things a lot easier with embedding!
