So, guess how I spent my day? If you guessed, "buttocks planted in seat in front of computer screen," you win the Grand Prize!

Everything is here but I may have some settings wrong. If you see anything weird or permissions settings that are different from the old forum, lemme know and I'll fix it mo'scratchie.

Enjoy!

On the setting page that has the newletter-optout and disclaimer, it won't let you change the settings on that page unless you fill something out in those two boxes.

It doesn't give you really any clue as to what your are to be typing in these two fields.

Thanks, Willie. That was a holdover from the old forum registration. I've deleted those.

Another known problem is that about 30 to 40 Chief Apprentices transferred over as Grasshoppers. I don't have a way of identifying specifically who's affected but if you're one of 'em, please let me know and I'll straighten it out ASAP. Already fixed a few.

Keep those bug reports coming in!

You have to click exactly on that tiny little upsidedown triangle for it to work.

Weird. It's working for me. It's not a permissions setting thing-- your group already has permission to view the member profiles and lists, that's as far as that setting goes. Anyone else having this problem?

FYI, I am currently using Firefox. If I am viewing for example page 120 of the members. I click on the little triangle and a "goto page" box opens. Regardless of what page number I type in the box, when I click "go" it reverts to the page I came from (120) in this case.

Mine works exactly as Reg described, but if I just continue to feed random #'s into the box, every few times it will decide to go to a previously selected page

There is a bug there. Looks like a software glitch. You have to enter your desired page twice.

That works everytime for me in Safari. If it's any consolation, this board is getting upgraded to the latest version they just released. Might go away after that.

I dunno if it's weird or different exactly, but I was going to add a reply to my request (!) for an asko service manual, since I found a couple decent ones around that are almost right- but it won't let me upload > 200k files. One's 1 meg, the other ~3meg.

I 'spose I could upload them to a file uploading/downloading site and link to them, but who knows how long they'll last there.. But, if you have storage limits or get charged per MB or GB, I totally understand the 200k limit. Well, that and people might go off posting 10 meg pictures and attaching them willy-nilly to their posts. :0

I set the 200k limit deliberately for ezzacly the reasons you gave.

Working on setting up the Downloads feature of this board-- that would be the place to upload manuals and diagrams.
