Very impressive - really like it! Almost like a new toy at Christmas... but VN is clearly not just for Christmas.

Is that a new editing feature too? Or have I just been using the old one very badly??

It's all looking really good. Clean. Tidy. Like it.

Thanks Matt, but I am still struggling to upload my personal photos to the gallery.

I hit upload and then do the whole browse thing but then am unable to do Step 2 Review and Publish. I have just copied and pasted what I can see on the screen but what I have pasted is not what I can actually see on the screen i.e. I can not see the bits in blue below).

looks good, just one thing from me

can we move the report button to the right, next to MultiQuote and Quote, I am sure we are more likely to use these two buttons and less likely to use Report. I pressed on it twice already by mistake.....

It's fun to have a browse in the members section. So sad that "Zog the Headsplitter" didn't become a VN regular poster...

I think it looks really good. Definately the best software compared to other local forums. Sydenhams is a bit dreary and East Dulwich is like an early version of teletext.
I too keep hitting the members profile button rather than looking at the post, so if people see that I have visited, I'm not stalking, just haven't got the hang of it yet :)

Congrats Matt - I think it looks great. I haven't tried any of the functionality yet but so far so good. My picture seems a little squashed but as it makes me look thinner I am not complaining!

Slightly worried about your profile picture Bryer. Looks like Hermy, me and Palacegirl are way ahead in this area of the forum although I was suprised to see MattVN's picture - it's not at all like Darth Vader! :o

Was just looking for up and coming calendar events - is it possible to reinstate a quick view of the events coming up this week please MattVN?

I'm glad I'm not the only one doing this, apologies to all those (i.e. most recent posters) who wonder why I am having a look at their profiles...

Sorry about your pic, am happy you look on the bright side of it :-) - this happened to me too and unfortunately I think that the only way it can be fixed is to re-upload!

@hermit, chewder (think i'm missing someone)
Do you all think that it is something I should remove the link for (member profile) or is it something that we can get use to?

...can we move the report button to the right, next to MultiQuote and Quote, I am sure we are more likely to use these two buttons and less likely to use Report. I pressed on it twice already by mistake.....


I'll look into this palacegirl - my usergroup puts things in different places to members so I'll login as a test member and take a look.

Thanks Matt, but I am still struggling to upload my personal photos to the gallery...


Have put this on the bug list. Will try and replicate as a member. Might take me some time though and am traveling tomorrow for a week - so might only be able to handle smaller things in that time.

Was just looking for up and coming calendar events - is it possible to reinstate a quick view of the events coming up this week please MattVN?


Will sort this out.

Also everyone ok with where the simply "reply" button is? I think there was a reply button (not quote/multiquote) in each post before wasn't there?

I don't think that the members name needs to be an active link as we can always click on their avatar/ picture to view the members profile.
Having the two options probably isn't necessary. Still need to see who posted last on a subject so not too sure if you can have the name without the link.

Am getting some odd 'unopened pics' type icons against each post in the 'new content' page...
