Dear all,

Templot Club upgrade from WowUltra to UltraBB forum software in progress today and for the next few days. Jim has modified the page template structure, so it will take me a while to get everything back in our usual order.

The present topic pages are temporary, but everything should be working after a fashion -- and there are a few new features. :)

Apologies for any inconvenience.

Martin.

One of the new features is the ability to highlight those topics on a forum in which you yourself have posted messages. I have implemented this as a cream background to the entire topic row.

See for example:

http://www.templot.com/forum/view_forum.php?id=1

Note that you won't see any difference if you haven't posted any messages in the topics listed! :)

Is this helpful? Or does it make the listing too scrappy-looking? Is there a better way to indicate this? (RMweb puts a black dot on the icon.)

Comments welcome.

Note that it's not (yet) working on the "Recent Topics" page, only the individual forum listings  -- Jim is on the case. :)

p.s. Forum upgrade still in progress. It's proving a major task to get everything back as we were.

Martin.

I'm still working on the upgrade to the UltraBB forum software, sorry it's taking so long.

One new feature which you may have noticed is that you can now award 1 to 5 "stars" to topics which you find especially helpful or informative.

Topics can then be sorted into those with the most stars at the top of the list, by clicking the header star in the stars column.

If several members award stars to a topic, the result will be averaged. For example if I give a topic 1 star and you give it 5 stars, it will appear in the list with 3 stars.

This is just a fun system really, but it does provide a means for you to find again topics which you or others have found helpful, and to signal to other members which topics you find helpful.

To award stars to a topic, click the Rate this topic link at the top right of the topic page:



regards,

Martin.

Hi Martin,

Would it not be better to use the median rather that averages? That way the results don't skewed due to extremes of scoring.

Regards

Raymond

On the 28th December I wrote: Templot Club upgrade from WowUltra to UltraBB forum software in progress today and for the next few days. Jim has modified the page template structure, so it will take me a while to get everything back in our usual order.So much for "a few days". :) It's still not completely finished, although mostly done. I have rather neglected it recently while working on saving preferences for Templot itself. I will get back to it as soon as that's done.

Apologies to those waiting for the "smallfont" version to be re-instated. As a short-term alternative you could click the "Printer Friendly" button at the top of the page. I will also try to do a different colour scheme as an option.

regards,

Martin.

Hi Martin

I get e-mails of topics/replies sent to me. For the last week or so I have been getting two copies of each e-mail for some reason

Best wishes
