    Site updated

    Discussion in 'Announcements' started by Daniel, Jun 1, 2007.

    Nothing major, but we went from vbulletin version 3.6.5 to version 3.6.7. A few feature improvements but mainly bug fixes.

    Just an FYI.

    That is great to hear Lp.
    Banzai, members don't really notice too much of a difference I don't think.
    But basically it just means that the forum has been updated really.

    Or perhaps it's just part of the preparations for your welcome back party...but since you came back early, we had to change it back :p

    Hey, I thought you were supposed to be away, renewing yourself, and here you are discussing the site's renewal instead!

    Not that I'm complaining, mind you.

    Whoa. What's with the second one? Kind of funky. Is that what it's supposed to look like? Because it doesn't. It just looks the same as ever.

    Okay, now it's changed. That was kind of freaky.

    The second format has potential. It has the appearance of a more spacious layout, which could work well for posting stories.

    I agree it is far better for the story postings as it makes them far easier to read and review.

    Banzai - that was profound. I'm not sure I understand you.

    The second one is the default vbulletin one that comes with the software.

    Yeah, either I had something of a trip, or the layouts changed within in a few moments from this grey one, to the blue one, and then back again.

    I think it depends on which "this" link you last clicked on. Apparently it sets your preferences, but I'm not sure whether it persists past the browser or login session.

    Hey Daniel, I really like the separation of Sticky threads from standard ones with the grey bar!
