    Good Lordy, I'm exhausted, but we are up and running with the new forum just in time for the start of 2008!

    Obviously there's still a lot to do, like make it look pretty, and you'll probably need to fix up your own sigs and avatars ... but you will be happy to see that you haven't lost your post counts and history.

    And most importantly, if you should fine that your password is no longer working, go here:

    http://www.marathonstadium.com/forum/login.php?do=lostpw&email=$email

    Or email me at marathonstadium@yahoo.co.nz

    You need to change your settings for subscription.

    GO TO: USER CP> EDIT OPTIONS> (DEFAULT THREAD SUBSCRIPTION MODE)

    Change that from: No email notification TO Do not subscribe.

    This will just stop threads from going to your UserCP as ones you want to keep up with.

    (Unless of course you want to)

    You can also change the time in your UserCP

    For Sydney Siders like myself its GT+10 (Eastern Australia)

    I think everyone has to re-code their signatures. That might be the reason why.

    And everyone is on Tony Herman because I'm guessing you still need to configure the rankings.

    Also, tried updating my avatar, but there's no option to upload it.

    Woo Hoo! Finally online.

    A few things to Members. If you cant log in, keep asking for an email with passwords until you can. It took me 5 go's and I got it.

    Make sure you change your password when your online:

    RELAX! They will be up and running soon.

    As well as some other features so just bare with us all.

    Thankyou James :D

    They still work, you just can't upload them atm. I'll have to alter the permissions of the folder to do that, and I don't have time right now. You can still link to your photo if you didn't have it uploaded (I thought most of you would have linked to it, anyway, tbh).

    For your sigs, just go into "User CP" up the top (User Control Panel), click on edit signature, and change those links into photos by cutting and pasting the link into the box that pops up when you click the little photo icon.

    Everything else that is narking you off, post it, because it'll be handy to have a list when I get time to make further changes! :)

    James get some rest, you've done enough good deeds for one weekend. I saw you on-line at 5am Wellington time (I was just finishing my afternoon high tea!!).

    It wont take long to though. Prolly because the forum is at default at the moment.

    It can easily turn into something like

    www.titans.com.au/forum

    Which looks good dont you think?
