Topic: Our new message board.

Hey everyone.  You may have noticed that our message board looks a bit different.  We've gone from the 2006 version of our message board software to the 2011 version.  (the November 2011 version.)

I spent 10 grueling hours staring at/changing code (and swearing) to make it fit in our little website, there may be a few little glitches here and there.  (If there are, let me know here or email me at rick@cholangiocarcinoma.org)

If you're having trouble posting, you may need to refresh a few times to get the old one out of your computer, or you may even need to clear your cache in your browser.  (Options/Clear History)

This new version has a lot of new functionality that we'll start implementing in the next few weeks.  (polls, group messages, etc.)  Some are already up and working (you can now like/recommend posts on Facebook).

Thanks for your continued patience and support of the CCF.  smile

Lainy!  It worked!  smile  Must have been the old stuff stuck in your computer.

Re: Our new message board.

Oh, I do like it, Rick.  It was a shock to see something different at first, but I love the feeling of space.

Happy Thanksgiving - & thanks for that FABULOUS turkey big_smile

Hi Rick,

I love the new look to boards and I'm really looking forward to seeing what you will be doing with the new functionality in the next few weeks. Thanks so much for all of the work that you would have done to get this new look up and running. Hopefully now you will have destressed from it all and I'm guessing that a bellyfull of turkey helped with the stress!!

Thanks so much Rick!!

Re: Our new message board.

Just noticed from my above post and one I just did on the introductions page about spacing between paragraphs. It seems for me that I need to double space between paragraphs when typing the post for it to appear as 1 space between paragraphs once submitted. This happening to anyone else or is it just me?

Re: Our new message board.

Me, too, Gavin.


I'll go for double spacing between paragraphs in future.

Thanks Julia! Maybe it is just a UK thing then!!! Think I'll go for the double as well right now then!!

Re: Our new message board.

Apparently it's not just a UK thing.  I just noticed the same thing and will go for double spacing too.  smile

Re: Our new message board.

Gavin, the paragraph spacing is an issue that has been reported and is being addressed right now by the developers.  I noticed it too.  (and went back and edited my original post.)

Re: Our new message board.

Thanks Rick. I hope it won't add too much to your workload! Just noticed all of the smiley icons and italics type things above the text box as well, cool!  cool

Couldn't resist adding a smiley!

Thanks Rick!

Re: Our new message board.

Everyone, the paragraph spacing is fixed.  I figured, why wait for them?  (Then I had to go edit my first entry again.)

Re: Our new message board.

Thanks Rick! I'm sure you know more and are better than them anyway!! Thanks again.
