Events: user addable?

Calendar Events can be added by 'AEVA Members'. Financial members need to PM a forum Admin or Mod to get this status.

Image size limit

I've set the image size limit to 150KB per image. That should be ample quality and size for a post. I would recommend resizing or changing the quality to fit this limit. If you want a higher resolution image you should host it on "image shack" or "photobucket" and provide a link for the "enlarged" v...

Page numbering suddenly reversed - SOLVED

Yes I upgraded the forums software to the latest version. We are running the "free" version which limits many of the features. So have we always been running the free version? And only recently have they limited the features? I suppose it doesn't matter any more now does it? That's all in the past ...

Forum Software Upgrade

I'm pleased to announce that the AEVA forums have been upgraded to the latest software version with the premium licence, which enables all features (too many to list). Private Messages have been set to a fairly respectable 10,000. An important thing that everyone should do now is go to the forum hom...

To help those using Firefox, since it took a while for me to find the cookies setting, here is the path to it: Tools / Options / Privacy tab / remove individual cookies / type "aeva" in the search bar.

Ok there's been an executive decision, I'm going to get the PAID version right now and sort the rest out with AEVA council later.

Another thing, everyone should clear the cookies/cache for AEVA as this new version has private cookies for the forum to help with security and identification. Perhaps that fixes the topic sort problem? As it seems fine to me.

A link to clear cookies is down the bottom of the forum homepage.

Please upload your images to an external image host. Here are some good examples.

Image Shack

Photo Bucket

The "free" version of the latest forums software doesn't permit uploading to the forums directly.

We seem to have had an "upgrade" to the web software lately. Most of it has been OK - bolding the word "today" in the "New Posts" list (formerly "Active Topics").

PM's

Well no one can force you to check your own emails.

Unfortunately this version of the forums does not support in-house notifications for PM's but I would've thought email is better since you don't actually have to visit the forums before you are notified of receiving a PM.

Images permissions

Coulomb,

I've just amended the privileges for uploads and increased the image size and member storage quota. There's been some server updates so it's fit for larger sizes now.

175KB image, 150MB quota and 1.5MB file.

cheers,
Andrew

Broken membership page

This is the screen you should see after completing an online membership application. Paypal is just above the direct deposit details. http://forums.aeva.asn.au/uploads/28/aevamembershippayments1.jpg There is no mention of payment on the initial screen but I'll add a message there showing the options.

Links to individual posts not working

Twitter feeds should be forwarded successfully through the "www" address, otherwise replace "www" with "forums" and the rest of the link remains identical. The server has been broadcasting the "forums.aeva" link.

Links to individual posts not working

OK good new people! I believe I have fixed the link/address problem. The old redirect only forwarded to the forums default page, but now it forwards to the individual post, including filename and query string etc (at least that is what my intentions are). I have confirmed that http://forums.aeva.asn...

I'll look into it. Ian has been kind enough to write the code for the new website, so it's mostly his area and may just need a slight amendment to get this working.

SPAM alert

The report post is the best option to use, as Coulomb has pointed out. We are usually pretty quick to remove spam posts, especially when people are kind enough to bring them to the attention of admin/moderators (much appreciated). Many of the spammers are filtered out by the admin-activated user acc...

Links to individual posts not working

Hi everyone, When the new AEVA website went live I made some changes to the AEVA domain system, partly to do with load balancing. Anyway, the simplest way is to replace "www" with "forums" in the link if you are referring to an old notification email which was sent before the domain was changed. Ema...

Global warming is a scam. We do not have enough recorded weather history to make any assumptions. The only "warming" we get is hot air from politician's mouths. The earth has natural temperature cycles. Some of you might think you're saving the planet by refusing plastic bags at shopping centres, wh...

Hi Taffy,

Thanks for bringing this to my attention. It appears I'd only allowed AEVA Members to modify their posts in the For Sale section. This has been ammended so you should have no problems now.

Ah, that is because the thread they have linked to is in the For Sale section. This is only viewable to AEVA forum members. Anyone can register if they would like to read through that section.
