    *** Forum Software Upgrade in Progress ***



    In attempt to eliminate the Server 503 errors that have been plaguing the site, I am moving forward with an upgrade to the forum software.


    The new software is different - it will take some time to get used to. I am assured that the "different" is good - so I request your patience in learning the new way it works. I'm in this with you in this regard.


    It will take me some time to configure the new software - so you will see some changes being made from time to time - especially initially.

    Yikes - that's a different look! Not bad, but it will take some getting used to!


    I've had to re-login about 10 times already.Bryan, thanks again for all your hard work maintaining the site! We'll get used to the new look...

    Ps. when editing a previous post, the text doesn't wrap - might make for some long-distance horizontal scrolling...

    OK - The home page is now configured to show recent forum posts - probably the most-used page on the old version.


    Because all of the stickies on the site roll up into this page, I

    Seems like the issue is with the Tags area, below the text entry field. When I clicked the edit button in my post in the Photokina thread, the active frame is on the order of 8000 pixels wide, and the text between the tag entry field and the checkbox for emailing replies contains some bad html (pasted below).

    Also, my screenshot was downsized from it's original ~700 pixels wide to somewhere a little under 600 pixels wide, and I noticed that the default value in the max width field of the Insert Image dialog is 550 pixels. Does this mean the previous 800 pixel 'limit' is now smaller?


    Have fun with the 60D, by the way...looking forward to the review!


    Thanks again!

    Not happening every time for me, now, but still occasionally. Also, only in Safari, not in Firefox or IE.

    One more suggestion, Bryan - what would you think about having the site logo at the top link to the main TDP home page, instead of the forum home page? I like having a quick way to access the reviews...


    Thanks again!
