Forum software upgrade 2016-12-10 completed

Thank you all for taking the time to test the new software planned for our forum. Since we now have resolved all the issues with the new software, the migration to that new version is scheduled for next Friday.

Keep in mind that private messages will be deleted with the upgrade.

The forum will be down for a couple of hours during the upgrade.

The address of will remain the same. However, since the servers IP address changes, accessing the forum over this name might not work for you for some time as propagation of DNS changes might need more time.

Please note that when the migration is completed, you will need to reset your password. To log in to your account, follow these steps:

  • Click the “Log In” button on the upper right on the site.
  • In the “Log In” window, click “I forgot my password”
  • In the “Password Reset” window, enter your username (The email does not seem to work) and click “Reset Password”.
  • Then the site should display the message containing the text “, you should receive an email with instructions on how to reset your password shortly.” and you then will receive an email with instructions to set a new password on the demo site.
  • With the new password you can login and post as usual.

See you there,


The upgrade took at bit longer than expected and I did a reset to yesterdays state which means that data you entered earlier today is lost. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Now we are back up and you can continue with writing posts and PMs.

Since there are some changes in how the UI works, here are a few quick tips to get you started:


  • For search, your user page, or the menu, use the icon buttons at upper right.

  • Selecting a topic title will always take you to your next unread reply in the topic. To enter at the top or bottom instead, select the reply count or last reply date.

  • While reading a topic, use the timeline on the right to jump to the top, bottom, or your last read position. On smaller screens, select the progress bar at bottom right to expand it:

    You can also press ? on your keyboard for a list of super-speedy keyboard shortcuts.


To insert a quote, select the text you wish to quote, then press any Reply button to open the editor. Repeat for multiple quotes.

You can always continue reading while you compose your reply, and we automatically save drafts as you write.

To notify someone about your reply, mention their name. Type @ to begin selecting a username.

To use standard Emoji, just type : to match by name, or use the traditional smileys ;)

To generate a summary for a link, paste it on a line by itself:

Your reply can be formatted using simple HTML, BBCode, or Markdown:

This is <b>bold</b>.
This is [b]bold[/b].
This is **bold**.

There are action buttons at the bottom of each post:

  • To let someone know that you enjoyed and appreciated their post, use the like button. Share the love!

  • Grab a copy-pasteable link to any reply or topic via the link button.

  • Use the show more button to reveal more actions. Flag to privately let the author, or our staff, know about a problem. Bookmark to find this post later on your profile page.


When someone replies to you, quotes your post, mentions your @username, or even links to your post, a number will immediately appear at the top right of the page. Select it to access your notifications.

Don’t worry about missing a reply – you’ll be emailed any notifications that arrive when you are away.


  • All topics less than two days old are considered new.

  • Any topic you’ve actively participated in (by creating it, replying to it, or reading it for an extended period) will be automatically tracked on your behalf.

You will see the new and unread number indicators next to these topics:

You can change your notifications for any topic via the notification control at the bottom, and right hand side, of each topic.

You can also set notification state per category, if you want to watch or mute every new topic in a specific category.

To change any of these settings, see your user preferences.

Enjoy your stay!

Something that reminds…

Now I changed it by applying the colors from

It now looks like this:

On my screen it looks ok. If you would like to have any further adjustments, you can propose other HTML colors for the css classes here.

Now it looks good for me, thx.

test uploading image

Its not zooming any more =(
I dont found Upload button, soo just plug image into this post…

Previous image was in JPG format, PNG much better:

I hid the upload button as I do not want to encourage people to upload images that much as it will increase the cost of backups.

For images with large homochromatic areas like this one, PNG is better.

btw. which forum software you are using? :smiley:
