View Full Version : FORUM UPGRADE UPDATE - read here!

11-30-2007, 12:23 AM
Over Thanksgiving Blab upgraded to the most current software version. Since about 3 years of upgrades were covered there were many code changes. Some users may need to make one or two adjustments to get their own computing in synch with upgraded Blab.

You need to take the following steps only if you are having problems using Blab. Examples are: unable to post because you are being logged out when you try; selections from the blue bar across the top that are missing (such as gallery and chat); unable to use Search.

Re-set your forum display style - scroll to the bottom of the forum page. In the lower left corner you will see a dropdown. It's on the left side of the blue bar that also has "Contact Us' and so on. Make sure you have selected one of the first 2 selections, "Blab Colors 1" or "No Parent Style 1." The other selections are currently not working properly and causing problems such as those above. In time all selections will be cleaned up but that won't be immediately.

If after changing the style (the dropdown described above) things are still not working, try emptying your browser. Log out of Blab. Empty your browser cache. Close all browser windows. Re-open the browser, log back into Blab.

Those steps should have Blab working better than ever! :)


Some other post-upgrade notes ...

The navigation bar across the top of the forum now has a WORKING Chat button. The access through the forum page is the same as well. And you'll see Classifieds isn't there any more, as Classifieds is inactive.

The smilie box to the right of the editing box has a "More" selection in the lower left that opens a window with all the smilies. This window is closing automatically when the post is submitted. You can keep a separate smilie window open until you close it by either: scroll to the bottom of the page and see the little lower left box Posting Rules, and use the "Smilies are On" selection; or use the url http://www.modelhorseblab.com/forums/misc.php?do=showsmilies

If you haven't tried Quick Links in awhile (see the right side of the bar,) take a look! There are some cool selections.

Please go here (Blab Tech thread) for more information. (http://www.modelhorseblab.com/forums/showthread.php?p=762216&posted=1#post762216)

And do please use the same thread to leave feedback on how well Blab is now working for you, how well after making the suggested adjustments if you need them, or what problems you aren't able to resolve.

Closing this thread - please direct your comments and feedback to the thread link above. :)

Hope you will enjoy Blab's upgraded features! :hugg
