G'day guys,

Kip (my server admin) and I have been working our speedos off over the last couple of weeks. We upgraded one of the servers and I've been using this opportunity to do some pretty major updates to the forum.

I appreciate your patience during this period and I hope it will prove to be worth it.

Here is a list of some of the visible updates, there are more non-visible updates involving speed/security/backups but that stuff is boring.

  • Staying Logged In - this was a bug that I've really wanted to fix and we have done it. I know I'll enjoy this fix.
  • Photo Slides - now you can click on an image in a post and easily scroll through all the images within that post. Try it out, it is awesome!!!
  • New Profile Fields - be sure to update your profile. Now you can include your Skype/Twitter/Website links and be sure to select the flag of your homeland.
  • Tapatalk Update - this is a mobile app that a few hundred of you guys use. It is updated and working great.
  • PayPal Donation - this forum is free and I hope to keep it that way but understand that it takes time money to keep it online. If you'd like to make a PayPal donation, there is a link in the header and any donations will be much appreciated.

Enjoy the forum and if you have any feedback or suggestions, please shoot me an email (DaveEvans@SwimmerBoyz.com) or a private message.

Session Time Extended - Gimme your feedback

Post by DaveSpeedoEvans » Sun Jun 29, 2014 10:12 am

Hey guys,

This morning I've been tweeking a few little things with the forum settings.

Main one that you guys will notice (hopefully) is extending the session time so the forum doesn't require you to re login every 6 minutes.

Let me know what you think about this. I generally keep the forum running in one of my windows throughout the day and having to login was a bit of a pain.

Any other ideas on how to improve things let me know here or via private message.

I find it tedious to be limited to only three picture uploads per post. Is there any way that limit can be increased? I saw that paspeedo seemed to have several pics on one single post in his most recent topic (get well soon paspeedo!) and I don't know how he did it so maybe this has already been implemented? Anyway thanks again for all your work in keeping this forum going!

Diveguy - he uploaded his photos onto Photobucket and then linked them into the post by the looks of it, you can add as many externally linked photos as you like per post i believe.

The only time the three attachments rule annoys me is when people post the next three in a new thread instead of a reply in the same thread ha just a little annoyance :p

And Dave, i like the extended session time! Quite handy.

Diveguy,

Nate is correct mate, PASPeedo hotlinked his images - you'll notice I do the same thing a fair bit. Saying that, I didn't realise it was a 3 photo limit. I've increased it to 5 this morning.

My only concern of making it say 20 is if someone uploads photos that are HUGE in size and the post looks horrible with that many pics - I'll delete posts if the photos are 4,000 pixels wide (or resize them) if I have time.

Let me know if increasing it to 5 helps.

I also noticed in the setting that attaching images to private messages wasn't allowed - I've change that so you can.

5 is a lot better, thanks! I also don't mind if there is a max limit on the size of the pictures that can be posted in order to not hog up so much data. In fact I prefer not to have pictures so big that they are larger than my browser window and force me to resize it or scroll back and forth to see the full pic or scroll to get to the controls such as page next and etc.
