Forum integration with the main site

It's great to see so much enthusiasm towards the AEVA forums and an ongoing pressure to keep things updated! The success of the current forum software and hosting platform speaks for itself, as it has now been live and operational for the past 7 years or so, now with over 50,000 posts. For those who...

Please stop the evil VigLink ads

I have found the option to disable VigLinks on these forums. I hope this simple tick box removes them. Please post in here if the they appear in future.

[URL] changes to <a href>

We have now upgraded to Version 11 of the forums software! Let's see if this update resolves many of the recent issues that have occurred.

[URL] changes to <a href>

It seems like this may be a bug with the most recent update of the forum software. Apparently it will be addressed in the next release (hopefully soon!)

Thanks for your kind words Andrew. I too thank you for all the work you've put in over the years.

Forum integration with the main site

Thanks for your words Karl . Keeping these forums up-to-date with the latest internet trends is definitely important and by me keeping the software version updated is a small step forward. However, yes there are many limitations (mainly that financial status is a manual intervention), but in 2007 wh...

Forum integration with the main site

It seems to me there are two separate issues here that have gotten somewhat tangled. Correct me if I'm wrong: 1. Andrew Brown is Tuarn Brown's (acmotor's) son. Tuarn Brown is a past president of AEVA but he is not president now. Andrew Brown is a past webmaster but he is not webmaster now. He has n...

Thanks for reporting this Woody. This should now be fixed. The forums software was updated a few days ago and a simple config file didn't get updated!

Hopefully all is well now.

It looks like an answer has already been provided for the issue of "Read" posts and cookies. It all depends on your browser and how many devices you login to the forums with using your one account.

Well let me put it this way, the suggestions people such as IVI make are very welcome, but as we already do have a forum team of sorts (all volunteer basis I should add) and this team could always do with some extra help if those people are happy to put in some time.

I've installed a different upload utility on the server, so try uploading again now. Just make sure you've satisfied the upload requirements to avoid getting a error (such as image is over sized). A lot of forums don't allow uploads onto their own server and recommend using Photobucket or Imageshack...

New Web Site Plan

Now that karlg has setup the new email server, I was just wondering if a few people could report back on notification emails from the forums. Is it all good? The forums/forums hosting have not changed, but the main AEVA website hosting, DNS and email system has changed.

Good to hear. It seems the ongoing email notify was turned off by default on the upgraded version, meaning it only sends one per thread (I think). If in future you stop receiving emails, check spam or junk folders because it may send a lot of emails if there are regular posts.
