    There still is a heap to do.. .. A shoutbox is coming, but we had to start somewhere otherwise it was never going to get done.. For me this site loads a whole load faster than the old site.. .. There were a lot of reason why we had to upgrade.. one of the main ones was security.. on any given week I was deleteing up to 20 – 30 bogus accounts, that would post comments about drugs and porn site etc etc… so basicly hacks.. The software we used for the old was unsupported and wasn’t going to be updated any more, hence if a new security hole was found… it wouldn’t be fixed.. this means everyones email address could be compromised.. We had to move to a more secure platform, so here it is.. There are still alot of bugs to iron out and a lot of things to turn of and adjust… so please just bear with us and get a feel..

    I’ll open a new forum soon, to allow people to provide constructive feedback which will allow us to tailor the site to what people most want.

    I’m not sure if it has been mentioned but I liked the way the old site used to jump to the newest post in a thread, other than that it’s just a case of getting used too.

    P.S You can’t please everybody, no site is every ones cup of tea. Well done Dan

    I forgot about the changeover and, wow, ALS sure looks different this morning. I’d got used to the old site after being on it for 4+ years, but I’m sure I’ll get used to the new one…. in time. Must away and explore the new site.

    Morning all and Dan,

    Wow a major leap :woohoo: (still working out in which direction :unsure: ) A bit of a struggle to get logged in though. Had to go to four different pages before I found one that would allow me to type anything in. Still, all teething problems which I’m sure will be sorted.

    Good on you Dan for biting the bullet and making the change. :cheer: :cheer:

    Liking it thus far.

    Once all the little teething glitches are rectified, this will be a vast improvement.

    Was due for a facelift and this is certainly a facelift!

    I think one of the noticible improvements will be the search functionality. So for newer members like me, I will be able to find the ‘already talked about and answered 50 times’ information that was difficult to find on the old ALS site.

    Well done to all concerned. I know it will take us all a little to get used too, but it is all worth it

    when there is a new post it comes up in the index 1 new or 3 new etc it is in green, when you click on that sometimes it comes up to the last post but sometimes it doesn’t :unsure:

    so all in all not sure myself really :laugh:

    Yes very much too like face book for everyone who has just been spammed by ASL to their email address with site post updates that finds this drive you nuts crazy :angry: unlike face book in your profile you can change this setting to not recive email updates from this site.

    This is the first positive but I think you should let members know about changes like this and other options that are new it took me a little while to figer it out.

    The new site looks awesome!

    Thanks, Dan. 🙂

    I have one issue though. In my profile, the page where you put your birthday, it requires a web-page link to save it. I don’t have a web-page and am clueless about what to put in that field so that it will save my data.

    Does anyone know what I can/should put in there?

    Nessienoo,

    Just delete where it says “Australia” in the box next to the http bit.

    It worked for me.

    Its not as simple as before but I am sure I will get used to it.

    No photos in the thread? Did they not get transferred?

    Well done on all of the hard work, cheers Porgey.
