[GIANTS] Forum Update

Post by RODHA » Thu Nov 30, 2017 2:26 pm

Lets enjoy our newly updated forum :biggrin2: *thumbsup*

I want to ask 2 things.

1) Do we need to check our settings for anything that has been changed on its own because of the update, and are there new settings we have to look at? I'm asking this rather than checking on my own because I hate checking settings over and over again as I do it too often because of my work :biggrin2: So, any help would be much appreciated :hi:

2) Do we have any new features? I couldn't find so far but may be I'm missing something.

Thanks for your time :hi:

Hey,

it's just a security update, so no big changes. It has, however, killed parts of our settings and some things look kinda weird right now. Our IT wonderboy is already looking into this.

There should be a setting in the forum admin page that allows it to be mobile friendly no matter what changes are made. A simple tick box. How can that have been broken??

It's all very colourful and the icons for threads look different too. Could also be that I haven't been on my pc in about 2 weeks :lol: :lol:

Flame means it's a hot topic. Depending in the settings in the admin screen. You can decide how many posts make a thread hot. I've generally seen it on here once it hits two pages to be a hot thread.
