I must say that having a "portal" is much more fun for we space aficionados (and sci-fi fans) than a plain old "front page."

The upgraded message editor looks pretty nice. It looks as if we have some new formating options. Hmm, I wonder what it means to insert: Spoiler? That could be fun. ph34r.gif

I don't know if this is something you can turn on and off or not, but the new forum is missing a feature I found useful in the previous version. I used to be able to mouse-over image attachments and get a yellow balloon popup with the image file size and number of downloads. That information is missing from the new pages.

I just went to Ted Stryk's Pioneer 11 Saturn post:

http://www.unmannedspaceflight.com/index.p...ost&p=99744

...and discovered if I try to click on the link to his posted image:

http://www.unmannedspaceflight.com/index.p...st&id=11865

...all I get is an error message:

"Sorry, but you do not have permission to use this feature...."

I wasn't logged in. I needed to log in to actually see his picture. Looking around (like the new Iapetus pictures), it seems that no uploaded pictures are visible unless you are logged in. Is this a bug or a new "feature?"

(I would disagree with it being a feature. It discourages casual browsers, and my cut down your audience for outreach.)

Did you click the manage current attachments arrow above the upload button? You need to click on the + at the left to add the attachment to the post.
Once I hit the upload button, that arrow disappears and never reappears. There's clearly a problem here. Anyone have this work with Mozilla?

It's a case of some settings from the 2.1.3 version carrying over to 2.3 - and some not. For some reason which is not documented by Invision - the settings for lots of things did carry over - but the ability for guests to download attachments for each forum wasn't one of them. I've gone through each forum and added guest-download for attachments.

As for the problem with attachments. Safari and Camino - no problem here.

The file size is reported with the thumbnail - but the number of downloads...have to see if that another magic setting that's moved or been changed with the upgrade.

Email's are currently broken (got to work that one out yet ) so subscriptions will probably not get notifications, and sending emails to members from their profiles will probably not work either. That'll have to wait till tonight.

Can't see that with IE6.0. What I get is an yellow box saying "Attached image" and that's all.

Email issue seemingly resolved (just sent myself an email from my profile - and subscriptions etc should work the same way)

It never did work for me with IE, even before the upgrade. When I was at work and forced to use IE I would have to open the page's html source and search for the information in there.

To be fair, I don't remember either seeing that info before the upgrade.

Yup. Now I'm seeing this same "new look".
It's nice to have the attachment's filesize somewhere, specially for those (like me at home) with dial-up connections.

Doug, I agree with the sentiment, but since plenty of other web developers are of the opposite persuasion, I wonder if you've installed the "IE Tab" plugin for firefox? Sounds like you might be on an Apple box, though.

The IE tab is wonderful, though. Just this morning I had to use it to read the last few characters of text on some borked webpage. It was probably screwed up by Adblock, but it's definitely nice to have the second rendering engine in the same UI. And you could have changed your post to "Yeah, I don't see it on IE... shrug." wink.gif
