Wow, it's quite different isn't it. I suppose I will only get around to learning the new structure and features after my exams, but until then I can only second janern: the quote button is back! :!:

Hopefully Gordon will source a custom style before too long and we can get the forum better integrated back into the main CameraLabs site but I'm already finding a lot to like.

One thing which isn't so good is that (under W7, Firefox and an nvidia graphics card) I get occasional text renditions of pages before the graphical styling kicks in. I can't think of a better way of describing it but if you've seen it you'll know what I mean. Anyone else seeing this?

Right, caught it when I logged off. I see something similar when logging on.

It's only there for a fraction of a second but it is repeatable and it's definitely not a good look!

Bob.

C lab 2 by SUNR15E, on Flickr


Does the admin panel have the same format as the older version?? I mean does it look like that ^^^^ Like I say I am NOT an expert....but I have some free time and the capability to work on this if you want. Or is this something you would rather do yourself.

This will take some time to get used to the new look.

Would be nicer if the user info is on the left side... at the moment it looks very weird.

and nice to see a quote button on this forum!

For me, it was just a matter of minutes to get used to the new format, no complaints. Generally, people do not like change and I love it providing there is a need for change. 8)


Cheers

Hey Gordon,
Hope this new system saves you time and energy. Looking forward to chatting up the latest photo stuff I find on CameraLabs using the new forum pages!

For reviews and everything else, just go straight to the front page:

http://www.cameralabs.com/

I'll add a menu to the forum as soon as I can work out how!

Thanks Gordon. That does it. The URL link I have always used needs to be changed.

Hi SUNR15E, thanks for your offer to help. Sadly the forum software has changed significantly with each generation. I knew how to customise version 2, but now version 3 is completely different.

Try doing a test installation of phpbb3 and see what you think.

Not the easiest system no...all credit to you to be doing it from scratch. I see they have a forum....Good luck wading through that...

Well personally I don't it matters what the forum looks like....but a section filled with links to all other section of the website would help.

http to cameralabs Main page

http to digital camera and lens reviews

etc.....so idiots like me can find them with a brief description...or a link that is the description.

This link will take you to the BEST break down and analysis of lenses on the internet. Check out all the word and pictures and all the great comments...

And if you want to buy Gordon a cheesburger and a Coffee Click this link. You never know he might buy SUNR15E a Coffee for reminding people to check this one. ;)

But I think you all should add links to the pages you feel people should look at. :) Keep the world flowing.

SUNR15E

Gordon,

This is something that may be addressed when you get around to setting a format/style and get everything sorted - but I noticed in many posts with photos that the photos are essentially cut in half - photos that were posted with a 1024 pixel width are only showing 1/2 and don't have any expansion or scroll options under them.

Just thought i'd point it out in case noone noticed it yet.

I'm seeing the same problem. As things stand the On Assignment competition is screwed unless one has a large monitor. :evil:

The issue appears to be partly down to the excessive width of the column on the right containing details of the poster, avatar etc.

Bob.

Yes, the poster's name will go on the left when it's restyled.

Looks good Gordon...change is always a bit bumpy at first but I'm sure everyone will get a handle on it soon enough.
