Hi Glen & Yuriy & the team,

Congratulations and thanks very much indeed :)

The best is that Stampboards is no longer dependent on those image hosting sites and the much easier way to load up images.

There is no need to keep the images in the devices / folders like before. Am I right ?

Cheers.

Congratulations Glen and team.

I am delighted at how well the board works and displays on my iPhone as well as the Windows 10 desktop.

Not quite sure what the question is?

Once you load something here now it is now stored here safely forever.

You may need it for a future upload HERE in which case deleting it may not be smart?

Hi Glen,

Thanks for clarifying and sorry for not making my question clear :(

We didn't move the images around when using Imgur as it would break the link.

Also I noticed there is no Wanted to Buy By members index in the Guest mode (guests were allow to view in the old version). Is it on purpose as if one is not a member, one can't buy anyway ?

This is what all members SHOULD see -- many are not - I will ask Yuriy to try and sort it.

Just tried to list in the "For Sale" and could not load images. Worked when I tested on the beta site. I do not see the items below the dialogue box in Glen's post above.

Do folks see that tab NOW?

Please report back on these things, we are NOT mind readers. :roll:

Yes I found ATTACHMENTS tab it to put my meme up above. I must admit it took a second, but that was only until i saw the word attachment.

Yes as widely reported all over the board, including post 1 of this very thread, and member email, 15% larger size is now possible - 1024 max up from previous 900. :)

This one I just loaded direct from my laptop - and is the new 1024 mega size! Try adding one and see for yourself. :mrgreen:

Maybe others should too? There is a cool idea for the day!

Ode to Stampboards

Many words have been written, paragraphs of joy

Endless days of waiting, for Glens new toy

Opinions were proffered , but The Owner has spoken

Convincing us all, that Stampboards was broken

Congratulations to all, photobucket is behind us

Glen & Yurij, a success, triple A +

Further to my post before about an issue with centreing of images, I have noticed older centred images that have [-centre] before & after the image. [-/centre].

However when I copy or quote it here they disappear:

I'd like to add my congratulations to Yuri, Glen, the mods and all those who tested the beta site.

I've done the whole "move domain from one company to another" myself and remember how much of a pain it is.

The new site looks really good.

Great work, transferring from one system to a new system is always a big job. Thanks Yuri and Glen, the board looks good.

One question though: are the messages in the announcements now per forum? In the old board I think they where global over the whole board. Why I think it is different: I always select 'Mark Topics Read' after I have looked into a forum. In the old board one time was enough for all the announcements in all the forums to go the status 'Read'. In the new setup I see that these messages if set to read in one forum, in another forum they are unread. And no, I do not think that in the time I'm switching from one to another forum in all announcements have been new messages.

A remark about the announcement sections at the top of the forums: keep this list of announcements as short as possible so the focus is on the content. Currently I have to scroll to get past the announcements to see the content in the forum.

use the ctrl button on your keyboard and the mouse scroll at the same time it will make the screen larger.

The last time I login was on May 1st 2017!

I managed to login today to see what had changed? Looking good except for this scary notice: "You do not have the required permissions to view or read topics within this forum." when I tried to check out this board!

But I continued to click on the board and was surprised to be allowed to view, read and post here. I wonder what happened :?:

If I do that to use the full width of the screen then I only get a few lines of text ! The reason I have a wide screen is to be able to see more text not less !

The answer given works fine for me. Just move the mouse scroll a little bit at a time.

I will join the clamouring crowd and say well done to all those involved with the successful transfer to this new platform.

In doing so I will add this image just to see how easy it is to do - using drag and drop from my desktop.

I also congratulate the ´makers` if this advanced Stampboards. Cleaned up, simplified and without doubt an image grabber of highest calibre. Best forum for stamps by far. I will continue to add to the mass of data in future.

Well done.

I don't need the text bigger - I just want to be able to use the full width of my screen. I have a wide screen in order to be able to see more text, not the same amout of text in bigger fonts (which actually means less text as one gets less lines on the screen).

Searching online for this concern on phpBB, it appears that one could get rid of the white space by updating the common.css file to change from a max-width of a numbe of pixels to a max-width of 100%.

Same problem for me only Cntrl Scroll or anything else does not work on My iMac. The only way is zooming Chrome etc then getting extremely large text which is unusable. This problem was mentioned a few times in testing so I guess it will get sorted in good time. Apart from this problem all works at lightning speed well done!
