Apologies for the stickies in this part of the forum, but they seem relevant for this sort of thing.

So, what's new on GNamer Forum today?

Well, you'll notice that we have one whole new category featuring a new forum, a renamed welcome category with a specific updates forum, and a new forum in the main Gnamer Forum category (GNamer Community).

Lots of other little tweaks and such, but I've already forgotten what most are. Laughing

I've shifted Fancy Fancy's suggestions thread into a more appropriate place, and Balladeer appears to have shifted his fully-featured music thread into Gaming Miscellaneous.

Just let us know what you think! Everything can be changed, and unnecessary stuff can easily be pruned.

Was this meant to be a Sticky? Razz

Crucially, everyone can post links now!

Dusty did a sort of closing thread over at the old place (although goodness knows why it's in Off Topic rather than Magazine), into which I posted, which made me remember by old avatar (my really old one), which made me a bit nostalgic. So the forum now has a tiny Gengar as a bookmark icon. Subject to change depending on popular demand!

We're just trying to get inserted links to show up noticeably, so bear with us if you refresh the page and some text changes colour for no apparent reason.

I've just added a mountain of new smilies. Some useful, and one just to outdo the rubishness that is this emoticon: Lol!

Oh, and thanks to Gazzadp, that irritating advertisement has buggered off.

That second one was there from the start. Laughing

Very Happy

Just been having a mess with the homepage to try and tidy everything up a bit. I think we're finally starting to look something like.

The only thing that has me completely flummoxed so far, is how, or if you can change the position of the 'online' status located below each user's post. Because we all think it looks ridiculous where it is.

I've just installed a points system. Do let me know if you want it to stay, but I'm tempted to keep how points are accrued a mystery. Then it'll be just like NGamer Forum!

One thing I will say, though: if you're paying attention, it's not hard to work out how points are gained. Razz

(I too prefer Razz to Nah nah!)

Is it by quoting people?

Also, Nah nah! beats Razz but Dance is good too but I'll stop as I am :affraid: that I am Dead horse

That would be telling! Simple tip: keep a check on your score every time you contribute.

And I wondered how long it would take someone to use the Dead horse smiley. I put it in there because it made me Laughing.

That "online" thing is weird, I see what you mean Stu!

I would think it is something linked to the style/theme that you are cuurently using, as I know that with my forumotion boards the "Online" and PM/eMail icons appear on either the left or right side underneath the avatar.

If you go into the display settings, I know you can choose left or right hand side.

So it might be an idea to see if changing the side that avatar is displayed, fixes it! As it might just be a bug!

Another thing sign up for the both the Forumotion support forums and also the phpBB support forums, as you will find some helpful advice & tip in there!

All the Best.,

Gazzadp

EDIT/Updated:

Having looked again, I am pretty certain this "Online" and icon placement *IS* down to the actual "THEME" that you have decided to use, again if you go into the Admin control Panel , then look in Display...

You will find that this forumotion site, will let you have a play aound with the various themes on the fly. What I mean is you as the admin can be trying other themes out and it will not make any visual changes UNTIL you decide to apply them.

I worked the problem out earlier, but fixing it sadly involves knowledge of CSS and HTML formatting, so for the time being, we'll just have to get used to it. Ho-hum!

http://help.forumotion.com/t94374-online-status-like-forumotion

The location of each icon is dictated by its place in the code. I understand the problem, but that's as far as my technical know-how will take me.

Sorry Stu, I was adding that update/edit just as you posted the above reply.

But like I said the icon placement is down to the chosen theme, you can have a look at other themes and it will not affect/effect the them you are running...

Unless you click on APPLY/SAVE!

I had a look at themes when everyone was talking about moving here, and I actually switched to this theme at that point. For the time being, I think it's wise to stay as we are. I don't want to upset folk by constantly farting about with the forum's appearance (like Facebook does every other week).

Glad folk like some of the new smilies! The beauty here is that if someone sees one they really like somewhere, we can add it to the smiley roster if needs be.

Oh, and you'll also notice 'Thanks' buttons. Is there any point keeping 'em? They are actually tied to a reputation system (which is currently deactivated), but I'm not keen on the idea of our users having good/bad reputations. It seems a bit unfriendly.

We could keep the Thanks buttons for a laugh though, I guess. Laughing

Depends what we can do with them, really- if we can have it not appear to anyone other than the person who clicked it, we can give people warm fuzzy feelings of having Thanked/Unthanked, without upsetting anyone/inflating anyone's ego and further.

I am worst admin. Where are the thanks buttons?

Forum might (hopefully won't but might) go a bit funny for a bit this afternoon, as I try to re-learn CSS and move the "online" indicator somewhere sensible.

They're at the top of every post that wasn't made by you. To the left of the Quote and Edit buttons. I haven't pressed one yet, and with the reputation system disabled, I've no idea if they have a secondary form of visual feedback. (I'm thinkin it might be something like a Facebook'Like', perhaps?) If someone tries it, do let me know.

Fingers crossed for the CSS thing! Pale

I think they might only be visible to certain people- I've only got a quote button.
