Hi everyone,

I am writing just to let you know that soon (maybe today) i will be upgrading the forum software so there may be some outages.

Hopefully it all goes smoothly,

Cheers, Glen

thanks AK. i thought a color change might freshen things up a bit. i still have some work to tweak things here and there but have not had any time today. one of the new features will be a photo/video gallery once i figure out how it works!!! :)

also, the way you go about editing messages will be different once I make a few more changes, it will be sort of like writing in Microsoft Word (i.e a rich text editor) where you can easily make text bold or large or a different color very easily. :th

another change is that topics can now be "rated" with up to 5 stars if they are found to be helpful.

Cheers, Glen

Hi everyone,

One of the new features of the upgraded forum is a Rich Text Editor that allows you to more easily edit your posts in the forum.

To turn it ON, you can go to -->

My Controls > Options > Board Settings > Posting Settings >

...and change "Type of text editor to use when posting" to "Rich Text Editor"

The reason it is not turned on by default is because it won't work with old browsers..you need either Internet Explorer 6 (IE6), Mozilla or Firefox (not sure about Opera).

Cheers, Glen :)

I will just mention briefly that I have added a few new images and video to the photo gallery. I am mainly just getting used to how it works. The admin controls behind the scenes are a bit complicated!

Members can create their your own photo albums too. If you do decide to do this, please keep the images tasteful! This is a family website :)

The gallery can be accessed using the link on the TOP RIGHT of the forum, or you can click here:

Thanks very much, Glen

I have had a further think about the gallery. Please only post fishing or squid related pictures!

Cheers, Glen
