Just thought I would let you all know of a few minor(ish) updates to the forum and server over the last few days.
I think the biggest one that everyone will have noticed (I mean it was like the big elephant in the room) is the new theme. There were a few reasons behind this:
We wanted our own little look and we have now settled on 'our' theme. So there wont be any more major changes to the way the site looks from now on, unless we decide to change the background picture. So if you your own photo's of anything to do with the club that you think others might like to see pleas feel free to send them to us and if we think they fit, we will put them up at some time The new forum software theme left a lot of 'white' space all over the place and we wanted to clean a lot of that up, still some work to be done, but you shouldn't notice too much. There was a lot of area's of the hold forum theme that was obsolete and we didn't to take advantage of the changes to remove these. Server changes
We have performed a few tweaks to the server, thins includes optimising the database configuration, converting the database tables to 'innodb' and changing the character set to use utf8mb4. Some of these changes will make a massive change to the speed and stability of the forum.
This was something we wanted to add to the forum in the previous version, but caused too many issues to be on a live site. We are however happy to say that there haven't been any major issues to note since we 'turned' this on.
If you haven't noticed already, we have updated the editor a little and added a few more buttons for you to play with and use when creating your posts. The editor will now grow with your post as you edit it.
