    By the way, I also significantly increased the PM box size for everyone not too long ago. Recently managed an upgrade to the storage capacity of the server... Paul
  3. Yep, 20 years today. Go figure.

    20-Year Anniversary of Concertina.net

    Hey Ken, yes, the site certainly started earlier, but it only officially became "Concertina.net" I guess when I actually registered the domain name, which apparently as this day 20 years ago. Thanks for coming along for the ride my friend! Paul
  5. I just realized that the Community Calendar was locked down in the most recent update. I've fixed the permissions, so registered users should now be able to add events. Sorry about that. Paul

    What happened to new content?

    Top left of site, "Activity". You can fully customize as well under the "My Activity Streams" option, and create custom streams, depending on your all kinds of variables and what you're interested in. Paul

    New look web site

    I meant the shift-return trick. The setting to have a paragraph every time you hit return is just a bit of a time saver since it's more natural to do it that way, as in a word processor. It's also a setting that can be enabled or disabled in most word processing/editing/messaging systems. Personal preference...

    It's actually standard practice. Just like in any modern word processor for the past decade or so... Same in just about any and every messaging or text editing environment.

    Is it just me?

    Thanks Dana! And thanks to you for being such a loyal advertiser! Paul

    Okay, all fixed up. Should be working fine now. Paul

    Editing interface problems

    1. Let me see if I can get this back. I think it's because of the tighter security controls enabled by default in the new version. 2. The link box works fine for me: here is a link 3. http://www.concertina.net again, still seems to work for me... what browser/OS are you using? Paul

    Is it just me?

    I'm working on it... it's because of the switch to HTTPS (secure) on the server...

    Done! I figured it out finally and the "who's online" is now hidden from guests. Paul

    Thanks! Yes, it went remarkably well after a few initial hiccups. Yes, return is now a paragraph, I thought that made sense. As in most editors/word processors, you can simply press shift-return to get a newline instead of a new paragraph. Paul

    Not surprised... makes sense to me. Mobile is meant to be minimalist; personally, I don't want to see everyone's enormous signature on my little phone screen every time 🙂

    Good point. I'll see if there's some way to disable that if you're not registered.

    Yeah, the mobile version should be light-years ahead now!! Looks amazing on my iPhone...

    Site Upgrade

    Correct, passwords remain the same.

    Site Upgrade

    Please note that we will soon be upgrading the forum system to the latest 4.3.x branch of the software, which brings significant improvements and changes. One important one to note is that login names no longer exist, so once the system is updated, you will log in with your (public) "display name". Thanks, Paul

    Signatures are enabled now... I'm also just trying to figure out the new system and all the settings and options!! Thanks, Paul

    Thanks Don. Yes, I think we'll go with option #1 once I evaluate the ongoing costs. The upgrade is now in motion, coming soon... fingers crossed it goes smoothly! Paul Just out of curiosity: Has my suggestion in #28 simply gone out of focus or considered unworthy even discussing right from the start? Sorry, didn't mean to ignore, but as you can see, we already have one (Kensington Concertinas) constant and reliable advertiser/sponsor. If you've been here a while, no doubt you've also seen ads from other shops and builders, but most eventually drop off or take extended breaks once their order books fill up. I just don't have the time or energy to devote to chasing them down... Cheers, Paul

    It's not so bad, but yeah, for almost two decades I've had people tell me to switch to lower cost hosts, or use free software. I think every single one of those hosts have now gone out of business ("free" ain't much of a business model, ha ha!), had terrible security/data breach problems, and the free software, well, you generally get what you pay for (not to mention the cost and hassle of migration). I've been in discussions with Invision and we're working something out. Not too expensive and they should be able to take care of the upgrade to the latest version for us to minimize the risk of losing any data/images/attachments etc. Well, anyway, the 3.x branch we're on now is a dead end (normal in the software business, you can't support legacy systems forever if you want to stay current and keep up with new developments and security), so I feel it's probably for the best. Eventually some security flaw in the old system could lead to disaster, and anyway, so many people now browse on mobile, and as everyone knows, the mobile version in place here is very old and does not work well. And yes, the new version apparently makes it possible to sell membership levels, so I'll maybe fool around with that once it's up and running to see if I can offer a few perks to people who kick in a few bucks, like additional upload space and things like that. Stay tuned. Paul

    I've removed the ads for now. I'll think about it. Paul
