New forum software - we are moving soon

I have been busy setting up the new forum software for the last few weeks, it's nearly ready and I think members can have a preview now at http://www.turkishliving.com/forums

Please have a browse and test out some of the facilities, at the moment we have an old snapshot of the current data on there, I will move the data over to the new forum when we are ready to go live.

If you want to test out posting you will need to request a few password, because your current password will not work. Please use the facility on the new forum to request a password, by using this link http://www.turkishliving.com/forums/login.php?do=lostpw

All data on the new forum will be over-written once we go live, so only post for testing.

Please report back any problems and views here.

Some of the new facilities on the new forum are;

Articles
Member Journals
Photo Gallery
Calendar
Polls
Quiz
Arcade Games
Radio (a few Turkish stations added)
Chat Facility (under development)

Hi Mushtaq: I have checked it out and it looks great! Not only looks, though. It has some great new facilities that will make the forum a better place to be.

Thanks for all the work.

Hi Mushtaq,
I like it so far, but was unable to do anything once I logged in with my new password. It said I didn't have permission by the Administrator to post or even to go to read the topics. Perhaps I did something wrong.[?] Once I logged out though, I could at least read the topics again. Here a couple other comments for what I have seen so far:
1. I don't see any avatars for anybody anymore. Do we have to each add them back in again?
2. Font is so small and sentences spacing the too close , will take some getting used to if that is the default. Will save on pages though now that I think about it[^]. Good with the bad.

Karen

Hi Karen,

The permissions problem should be fixed now.
Avatars will have to be moved and setup again, so will the member photos.
Font size is the same, but line spacing was smaller, which I have now fixed too.

Thanks for the input.

Yes, I got in now. I like it a lot. Lot's of new features. I love exploring new software. I added a picture to my personal photo album and I didn't even have to resize it!!! We usually take high resolution pictures on our digital camera so that's going to save us a step in uploading. Is there a limit on how many photos? I did notice though that when I went down the All forums list to where it shows the list of members photos last added...when I clicked on my photo title from there it gave an error message about the database being empty...yet I could see my photo when I went into the control panel and looking at my album from there. Also, you might want to take out the Adults only forum or restrict it in case somebody's under 18's get into the new one while your testing it out on us. Also, maybe the Introduce yourself forum should be towards the top of the list of All forums instead of near the bottom. Just a suggestion. I'm still playing with it though....and I think it's fantastic. Cheers to you!! Karen

vBulletin, Best choice you could have made Mushtaq and all the best with the move. Would you be having the karma mod installed? Also is there going to be a PM function?
once again Good work, Mushtaq.

Hi steve, yes the karma mod will be installed and PM will be working once live although restricted to a level according to how many posts made. Probably between 25-50.
