OK, that actually was a problem...< snip > ...So *going forward* cookies will work properly,
and the timeout is currently 5 hours (was 6 hours originally).

Talk about fast service... Things are already better here... Thanks!

PS The font size is now perfect (for me, at least) and the screen fits just right on my laptop when maximized.

Just a little thing and I'm not sure it what happened on the "old" forum. When you preview a quote and reply the date appears as a serial number ie "On 1155705683, Damik said..." However this is all fixed when the reply is posted. So not big deal

Overall I like the new layout looks cleaner to me

Yeah, well in the text edit form it's supposed to be a number. It only turns to a date (in your local time zone) when in its "finished" form, either in the actual thread or a preview.

Clarified. Many thanks.

It used to give you a hard date in "server time", but I changed that a few updates ago so that quotes would work for any time zone. The usual forum practice is to not bother providing a time/date for a quote, just the author's name, but I still like a date.

One other thing I noticed. You disabled the ability to use boldface in titles and the new posts are in bold. However, the posts in which bold was previously used in titles still remains (ex. T.W.A.T.), seems unaffected, they are bold all the time. Which is fine. The problem occurs at the top of the IE window. It actually displays the code.

Here's a picture to show you what I mean:

Another thing that just seemed to crop up...all of the times next to "last poster" are in a 24-hr clock. It is relative to my time zone though. I think it used to use "6:32 PM" instead of "18:32:.

Hmmmmm...... the clock is fine on my computer, OTAHD. I am using Firefox, although I doubt that means anything.

Good catch on the BOLD thing!

I know Daniel appreciates the help that the users give in making the site as perfect as possible!

Good on y'all!

Does that mean your time still displays as a 12 hour, or is it 24, but you don't mind? If it's the former I'll be somewhat intrigued; I use Firefox and mine displays as 24 - and no, I don't mind.

Good catch on the BOLD thing!

Is it really a problem? For the sake of interest though . . .
I've removed the switches from my Soap 2 thread (originally posted on the 13th August) and the title has remained bold. Tried the same with my Wot! No RC! thread (posted on the 15th and foud that that one reverts to standard face.

"Soap 2" is still bold because in the new forum design, instead of the last poster being in bold to indicate new posts, the title of the thread is instead. According to Daniel, boldface no longer works in titles.

My clock's back to 12 hour now.

djy, take 500 lines, "I must pay more attention in class."

My clock's back to 12 hour now.

Mine isn't, but as I use 24 hour at work it's no big deal.

My clock has been a.m. p.m. all the way through.

I believe removing the BOLD HTML will stop the BOLD indications in the heading on Internet Explorer, but the thread will only return to NON-BOLD IF depending upon when the thread was created, and by that I mean not necessarily by "date", but possibly by exactly when Daniel was doing his programming on that particular area. (However, since I'm only part geek, I have NO IDEA what I'm talking about!)

However, in djy's case, non of the programming by Daniel necessarily applies, since djy is somewhat of a ........... let's say........ pecuuuuuuuuuuuliar character........ which may or may not translate properly in HTML, CSS, or in any of the web programming "languages".

I think HTML actually only works on earth, as well. Where are you from, djy?

ROFL!!! ;-)
