    Stu, I said had! I cannot remember for the life of me what it was called. Someone must know as it looks like we are going to need it.

    I chased up a couple of other similar sites however did not trust them!

    I think it also gave an automatic click option for web and email and you could also pick the measurements you required.

    Still trying to sort out the 3 dots on my albums! (can see images though when I click on them).
    Tried to follow instructions as per post 60-all I see is:

    add media
    next drop down menu is 'watched content'
    there is no 'your content' between the two as per your screen shot in post 60

    Beginning to think I'm REALLY stupid now:p

    Have been able to access some of my gallery and found the images to be in wrong order ie last image first. I found the option to edit and am in process of working through all my albums rectifying them.

    Hi Lesley, you are not alone in your confusion over the gallery. I spent a good bit of time yesterday finding the option and then finally selecting "Change Album Thumbnails"/ aka cover images again for some of my albums, is that what you mean? If so, I can explain what I did and then we can see if the Members group has that permission set up yet.

    I had a look at your Harry Salt album and set thumbnail/cover

    Hi Paul, if I recall correctly didn't the old IPB software require us to upload document images in reverse order so that they would be displayed in the correct order? If that's right then I think what has happened here is XF has actually (re-)indexed and displayed the images within albums logically - if you see what i mean. I don't have your patience to try and re-order all document albums and as the reader on XF software seems to be much more user-friendly, I've simply left them as they are after only selecting the correct first image as cover image.

    Sorry for lack of responses this AM, chaps. Will be back at the buttons properly later this evening.
    Finishing some real decorating first, as people are looking at me funny. :unsure:
    (There is also some nonsense relating to an MOT and a very camp French car that may push the timescale back a bit...)

    Hopefully will get a few more things shaken out then.

    I'm actually impressed with this system so far.
    SEO and ads are going in soonish, with the SEO possibly sorting a few external link niggles, but if the gallery albums being disturbed and the (much more annoying) internal thread links are the only two hits, with no actual data being lost, then we got off as cleanly as any forum system move can be.

    Auto-parsing links are back... Which may be what I missed the most under IPB.
    And being able to paste into threads.
    And pop up thread previews.
    And speed. Lots and lots of speed.
    Posting speed that is... Not the Hell's Angels dustbin stuff.

    Sorry. Rambling.
    And funny looks starting again.
    Back later to push on with kicking this puppy into shape.

    Tweaking required ?

    Hi Ron, the issue of broken links was raised earlier in the thread.
    Unsure if it can be fixed, but Otto certainly has been trying to find a solution.

    Hi Di

    Thanks for that.

    If it is proving to be too much hassle then I can re-link them to the new profiles but I will wait to see if it can be done en bloc.

    Hi Ron,
    Already fixed them for you. It's not a proper solution, but hey, at least it's prompt service ;)

    hit the reply button on the post you want to respond to: that seems to do it.

    Ahh, you've found the thumbnail thingy on your own: will you be finding some other penance for me to do then? :p

    I use a Microsoft resize programme. Just Google photo resize and select a programme suitable for your computer. Once a photo is on your hard drive you select and right click and decide which size to make it. The programme keeps the original and places the resized version alongside.

    I am showing 2 red, inbox warnings for old messages.
    Whatever I try including selecting as read, the warning remains.

    I've just logged on for the first time in ages and found it is an entirely different world! Hopefully everyone is still marching in step in the same direction and singing from the same hymn sheet.

    Hi Tom,
    I've also had 9 showing on my inbox since the move. The 'mark as read' didn't work with these either.
    But, I did scroll through the lists until I found a few unread (bold) which I then clicked to open. Now only 6 more to find...
    Did you try finding them/opening them, or didn't that work either?

    What we looking at so far?

    Internal links are screwy, but edit powers in place to fix.
    Gallery album heap, but people seem to be gradually getting their heads around that.

    Any more for any more?

    Pleased to see normal WW2 chat re-establishing straight away (Equivalent thread to this was rather different last software shift!).

    Should be getting word on definite file size upload limits very soon.
    Don't be surprised if the appearance sometimes goes odd. Will be tweaking that for a fair while with some... errr... experimental button pushes.
    Will start another thread for some smiley code-spotting so I can correct/re-add those that are missing.

    I like the way a post just blinks into view after hitting the button...

    Thanks Tom - Downloaded one. Similar to the one I had before.

    Owe you a dram!
