Right, thats the forum more or less done, migration and all :)

If you discover anything wrong or not working right please message me with clear details.

I have moved and cleaned up the threads, boards, posts and contents best I can, I have probably missed the odd ascii character lurking deep in some post or other, tomorrow after a good sleep and with fresh eyes I'll be going through things to catch any last alterations necessary.

There are 3 main things you need to do when you first join the site.
    Firstly, hover your mouse over the forum link in the main top menu, you will see a dropdown for forum profile, go there and update what you wish, pay particular attention to fixing your signatures.
    Secondly, go to your profile in the community area, update your info and load up your avatar
    Thirdly, if you want to help then if you spot any corrections necessary in your own posts you should be able to edit them yourselves

Soon the forum profile wont be necessary, its just you cannot yet edit your profile in the community system until a forthcoming update that will be out soon, thats why I had to leave the 2 seperated..

Finally, if for some reason you cant log in follow the reminder links either in the community area or in the module in the right column in the front page.

Theres still little tweaks to do over the next couple of days to make sure its all settled and running right so please be patient and enjoy!

This new site has been in the works almost since day 1 of moving to my hosting, its been difficult keeping quiet lol and I'm just glad to roll it out there for you. :cheer:

Ok, quick follow up.

Theres a few little things need attention I'll be sorting later.

the main thing is video uploads may not function right til the licence for the site url updates with the community software provider, other than that its just small layout and formatting stuff, just a couple of silly sized text boxes and so on.

I've run through things with a test user and it all seems pretty much ok :)

Site links should all be ok but if you find any wrong uns please message me them.

Going for a good sleep now!

Thanks for all the comments. I've been the one building it and M3RRiK has been in charge of choosing how I style it and what gets kept and dropped, Action2 and Oggyman have had input as well, we have literally been through hundreds of different combinations for what, 6 weeks or more now?? (Feels like much longer!)

I'm going to take a look at a few styling issues tonight but theres only one main bug I have found, the community part hates special characters in usernames! I have to add a SEF friendly addon tonight which will hopefully let me use a workaround correction for that until I find a fix as anyone such as "Goatkiller?" will get an error accessing their profile :ohmy:

Try holding down Ctrl and use the scroll wheel to zoom in/out.

Yeah, theres more work on integration needed between the authors of the community system and the authors of the forum system, you can set the forum to use the community to handle user profiles but they have not yet fully completed the integration and theres no way for the community to handle the forum sigs. For now if you hover over the forum button in the top main menu you will get a dropdown option linking to the forum profile area so you can edit your sigs there.

The site is deceptively simple on the frontend :) Theres a massive amount of work and systems I have utilised behind the scenes, theres bound to be a few missed details, also I have cross browser tested as much as possible, however each make of browser handles markup language differently and its getting harder all the time to make sure everyone sees and experiences the same :angry:
