Upgrade went smoothly AFAICT, I haven't noticed any problems and people have been posting so it's not broken.

The gallery features are waiting for the "proper path" to a server program and to be enabled; so they wont be apparent immediately.

As for changes, theres lots of 'em, but you've got to pay close attention to notice then wink... Can't have too much of a change, might frighten the natives!

PHOTO GALLERY DIRECTIONS

to add pics, go to that forum, then hit NEW IMAGE , then its the same as a regular post but click the link near the bottom that says Image Manager and that brings up the upload box. click add file to add the pictures you want to add, it takes a minute to upload the file after you hit ADD FILE. then click DONE ADDING FILES when you have added three files.

there is currently a 2mb limit on the three pics that can be uploaded to each thread, both those settings can be tweaked if we decide its necessary

two semi decent descriptions here

Basically it's a PC -> PC or a PC -> Telephone service; you can setup a username which will allow users to check your availability and call you via clicking on your skype id...

Basically, it was yet-another UBBDev request lol

When I sent a PM to which I had forgotten to add a title the system rejected it with a message that it was incomplete and instructed me to go [back], but when I did that the entire contents of the PM were lost and I had to start over again. Was that always the case?

Soo... Moguai or Marty,
That mysterious PC-PC-APC-Telephone device called Skype.... Can't find it in my profile - only find IM: ICQ, Yahoo, MSN and AIM. Where can I enter the magic spell of Skype to get the Green (online) or Grey (offline) engraving?

look here for the language to link with
//ambergriscaye.com/forum/embed.html

then give it a try on the board if you have a SkypeID to test with

Re: upgrade to board tonight - 06/27/07 07:05 AM

Yeh, Skype isn't really setable in the CP (at this time, decent Idea for a mod though, I'll think about working on it), it's more a thing yu insert into yoru signature or into a post as:
Code
[skype]skypeid[/skype]
