Re: BIABacus Pre-Release - Your First Impressions

Much appreciated Brian :peace: If you enjoyed my last post, you can thank Microsoft. I've had a mind-numbing week dealing with re-installs etc. Lost a lot of time there so am about to throw up a new "skin" for you. Would have liked to have done a lot more testing first but c'est la vie. New skin in ...

Re: BIABacus Pre-Release - Your First Impressions

[EDIT: I've dealt with your actual question in the PS :)] Hello Joel and great to hear from you :peace:! All's well thanks - since last hearing from you, I'm definitely older, wiser :P and $50k poorer :angry:. I haven't lost my enthusiasm though ;). Spent a lot of 2016 and early 2017 working full-ti...

Re: New Skin coming in a few days.

Update* - Gold members caught a few bugs on the beta site. Just one left to solve. - Solving the above and installing new software took up the week window of time I had available. - I'd like to re-write the intro part of the site for the new temporary skin. I'll try to do that before... - Next unbr...

New Skin coming in a few days.

Just heading in to another marathon run of site development. While that is happening, in a few days, we'll give you a much nicer skin to work with. I'll keep you posted ;) Pat Gold Members Only If you go to the beta site, you should be able to see all the sections in the pic below. You must log in t...

Re: Writing guides

Great post Nick - intelligent, realistic thoughts there, not negativity or pessimism. It's a good thing we like to take on the impossible :) As for the diagram, I have quite a few more that investigate all the different relationships. Doing that sometimes help me to find some "missing links." Nice o...

Re: Writing guides

[Inconceivable: Have sent you my email.] I haven't done any sort of update for some time on the new site structure. This thread is probably an opportunity for me to give you an idea of what I'm currently working on behind the scenes. To cut a long story short, I'm basically using a very structured t...

Re: Writing guides

Nick, apologies for the delay. Rather than tie everyone up here with my thoughts, could you send me your guide? That way I can check / offer suggestions before "publishing" and then find the best place to do so. Once things are published, they become almost impossible to correct. I know this from pe...

Re: Writing guides

Nick, I've started writing an essay here as it is such a good question. However, I've saved what I have written so far as I've been going for about 18 hours straight now and think I'll be able to write much more "efficiently" tomorrow :) Also quickly read your other post. Many thanks to you :salute:

Re: The BIPs Thread

Nick, many thanks for the above :salute: Totally valid points too. It's not that 11.9% beer talking :lol: The idea of the BIABrewer.info Point System is to add a little recognition to those who contribute to the site, whether it be through content, labour, activity or financial contributions. Like m...

Re: If You Are Having Strange Problems Registering or Logging In

Think I had a bit of fuel on board writing that last post :). Finished a 3 week job with very long hours on Friday so, after weekend of sleep and relaxing, I'm back in form now. Simon reckons he's going to have some time late September to help out so that's brilliant :champ:. He can often fix someth...

Re: If You Are Having Strange Problems Registering or Logging In

Does anyone have any insights into the following? There are at least four websites I've come across recently that don't work with Google Chrome when it comes to filling in a form. One of these is even a major Australian government website. Sarah and I, using different IP's and computers, both had th...

Re: If You Are Having Strange Problems Registering or Logging In

Cheers ;). Took a while to find too as some internal links did work :scratch:. At one stage I even thought it looked like links to threads that contained a post by a user with a missing avatar was the problem. Next problem: Looks like users with gmail, outlook, live etc emails are getting bounced ag...

Re: If You Are Having Strange Problems Registering or Logging In

Fixed. Cause: A bug in an 'extension' to phpBB used to open external links (links that lead to other sites) in a new tab. I've disabled the extension but am pretty sure we had that hard-coded a few months ago so will look for that code so we don't have to use the extension. Thanks again for letting...

Re: If You Are Having Strange Problems Registering or Logging In

Scott, Joel and Mark,

Thanks for your patience on this and for writing. Without your posts, I wouldn't even have had a clue as to what to look for. Crazy stuff as the only thing that logs you out is if you click on an "internal" link within a post. External links are fine.

I'll look into it now.
Pat

Re: My First Post! - Post here to become Fully Registered

Hi Joel and welcome to the board. I just checked your permissions and they seem to be okay. One strange thing with this forum software is, after your first post is approved, you need to log out and then back in for your membership status to change. You are definitely in the right group now so hopefu...

Re: If You Are Having Strange Problems Registering or Logging In

Thanks Scott :salute: Fixed! Forgot to change the cookie domain from one we were using a few weeks ago. Oops! Time I've had since then has been syphoned into setting up (and learning) how to write stuff to automatically back the site up in a few places a few times a day. You'll also find now you can...

Re: The BIPs Thread

I think I'm BIP'd up now!? I purchased last night as a bit of a test to see what would happen. Thanks for your generous donation Muggy :salute: The process isn't automated as yet so nothing instantly happens. Your donation however will get you into the Gold Members group and I'll add you there afte...
