Quote from: Dungeon Master on November 22, 2022, 10:31:20 PMHi allThe GMG forum software has been updated to the latest version 2.1.3. This is a bare-bones install with no modifications of customisations. As such it will look a little generic. The functionality remains the same, and all boards, topics and posts should have been transcribed. Over the next few days, I will customise the forum to improve the look and tailor it better for our members.Why was the update necessary? The old version was not being maintained with bug fixes and security patches, so it was becoming vulnerable to bots and malware. The old version was never designed to be viewed on small devices, such a phones and tablets. The buttons were too small for fingers, and some functionality was not available. The new version flows smoothly from full desktop size to tiny phone size, while keeping functionality.New features:Alert notificationsWYSIWYG editorDraft messages (write now, revise and send later)Mentions of @otherusersDrag and Drop attachmentsImproved moderating functionsGDPR compliance (essential for European standards)Security updatesBackend server compatibility improvementsPlease let me know if you notice any issues.cheersRob
Quote from: George on November 23, 2022, 04:30:01 PMThanks, Rob! If possible, can the yellow NEW button that now appears before thread name(s) with new posts be moved back to the end of the thread name, where it was before?
Quote from: absolutelybaching on November 23, 2022, 08:42:56 AMNo problem. It's supposed to have a "GMG:Veteran" badge, and an "S:Subscriber" badge. The one is showing, the other is not.
Quote from: Dungeon Master on November 23, 2022, 05:08:15 PMNope, that's hard-coded.
Quote from: Dungeon Master on November 23, 2022, 05:11:58 PMI am considering scrapping the subscriber system altogether. I very much appreciate the financial support, but with PayPal changes it is no longer automated, so I have to manually adjust each subscribers profile when their subscription changes.
Quote from: Brian on November 23, 2022, 05:58:35 PMIs it possible to implement some sort of "tip jar" system where people who want to help support the forum can leave one-time donations as desired? If needed, there could be an annual or semiannual reminder campaign to urge people to use the tip jar.
Quote from: Pohjolas Daughter on November 23, 2022, 02:37:23 PMRob,I must admit that like Absol. Bach. that my biggest concern would have to do with security/safety updates (as soon as possible). We do also realize that you have a life outside of your beautiful creation though. Again, thank you (as I had mentioned earlier here). I'm very grateful that a place like this exists.Best wishes,PD
Quote from: JBS on November 23, 2022, 07:44:07 PMWhat is "Updated Topics" supposed to be and why does it show a different listing than "Unread Posts"?

Quote from: Dungeon Master on November 23, 2022, 08:16:52 PM"Unread Posts" shows all new posts that you have not seen"Updated Topics" shows all new replies in a topic you have previously posted on....I think.
