    Site Administration Site upgrade, please report problems

    Folks, completed a forum software upgrade today. You should not notice anything, but if you do, please let me know. :)

    Shift-F5 or Ctrl-F5 depending on your browser, to force a fresh reload. You may have the old stuff cached. Or... check your actual phone. ;)

    Please apply to the Army.ca Broken Phone Class Action suit. Expected to take almost exactly a year to see results. ;)

    What's the buzz? [April Fools 2021]

    ...and we are back to normal. Thanks for playing everyone! :) For those who missed it, visiting Army.ca would play a buzzing sound after ~12 seconds. The hope was folks would be checking their phones for messages that were never there. Evil, but I'm OK with it. :)

    What's the buzz? [April Fools 2021]

    Interesting, I'll take a look, but I expect it will be resolved by end of day.

    Site Administration Welcome to the new Army.ca!

    Hi QM, In the menu bar at the top, there should be an entry called "What's New" and clicking on that will take you to a page showing all that is new/unseen on the site. There's even a line that divides what's new since your last visit and what's "unseen" prior to that: The new format takes a...

    Site Administration Welcome to the new Army.ca!

    Folks, The old Navy.ca and Air-Force.ca themes are back. I am certain some tweaking will still be needed but they are mostly set and ready to go. You can change styles by clicking on the "Default style" link on the lower left of every page, or use this link to go directly to the style selector...

    Site Administration Welcome to the new Army.ca!

    Clicking on images in the Wiki is broken... haven't been able to find a fix yet. :(

    Site Administration Welcome to the new Army.ca!

    Re: quote timestamps Looks like that's not an option, the closest is to click on the arrow next to the quoted user's name to go to the original post. I've made a request of the XenForo devs to consider adding it. No idea if it will make the cut.

    Site Administration Welcome to the new Army.ca!

    Thanks Malcolm, I think it's a problem with the Google Adsense code... previously I had been using Display Ads, and it worked pretty well. Automatically inserted a few ads here and there. With XenForo, it seems to have gone nuts, inserting ads all over the place and consuming nearly all viewable...

    Site Administration Welcome to the new Army.ca!

    An ad blocker should work, but won't be available for mobile users (which are an increasingly high proportion of our users). For now, I've relegated ads to unregistered users: Log in, no ads. I'll see how that plays for a bit while I try to work out the issue with the ad placement.

    Site Administration Welcome to the new Army.ca!

    I've just made another change... could make it better, could make it worse. Feedback?

    Site Administration Welcome to the new Army.ca!

    ...and I thought I might have worked out a solution. Looks like I have not! Back to the drawing board I guess.

    System Upgrade: Please Report Problems

    It allows Chrome and other browsers to use the "toast" popups in the lower right of your screen to notify you of new DMs, replies to threads you are following, etc.

    System Upgrade: Please Report Problems

    I have, for now, completely disabled ads. I like it, but in recent years, the site has largely sustained itself on ad revenue. I do not want to pressure users to “pay to play.” The whole point in my view is the site should be free for all, with the option to support via subscriptions (upgrades)...

    System Upgrade: Please Report Problems

    Ok, I may have slowed down the rampaging ads. Odd, I have not changed a thing wrt advertising since we went live on Christmas Eve with the new site. I suspect Google is just getting more aggressive with the inserts. I'll see if I can scale it back to something reasonable... if not I may have to...

    System Upgrade: Please Report Problems

    Is it asking for the 2FA/MFA code every time too? I’ve managed to stay logged in across multiple devices so far. Are you online when it “forgets” you or does it occur when coming back to the site after being away for a bit? I may be able to make the text box for new posts lighter, but have to...
