Well,

Shocking for even me to log into this new upgrade! Welcome to version 3 of our forum. For the moment, we have minimal skins and modifications until I can add some back in!

Post up any questions you may have in the testing/how do I folder and we will answer them up!

Love

Sheila, Jillie and Bee

Holy crap, I was initially disoriented when I logged in. LOL Everything looks great though, just like I knew it would. I'm excited to look around at everything now. :)

Yikes!

It is not good logging on first thing in the morning before even taking a sip from my waiting cup of tea to suddenly land face first on what feels like an alien planet..... I knew we were upgrading, and had read the blurb about the changes that would take place, but it is still a shock! Staying with an old version is unfortunately not an option though, as this would expose everyone to unacceptable security risks.

I think when I get used to it I will like it!

love Jillie xxx

Minor changes

- New light skin made as default, more work to be done on logo later!
- Post views removed from skins
- Added Recent Status Updates and recent blog entries to the "hook" on the right side of the screen. FYI, you can hide those by clicking the arrow at the top right of it and you will get a full screen forum again

More work continues!!!!! Stay tuned

I am quite shocked by the new format....the set up is all different from the green-skined set up I was use to. It is a change alright, I will just have to have some time to get use to it. I so miss the picture of the beast at the top.

Thanks for all the work Sheila!!

hugs,
Sunshine

Don't worry Sunshine, getting the calendar back up is on the priority list once Sheila has returned from gallivanting around Maine buying up vacuum cleaners.... :??

Even though you can't access the calendar birthdays are still coming up on the day at the bottom of the index page of the forum, so keep an eye out there for the moment.

love Jillie xxxxxxx
