Maintenance Working on the website today 2021-08-22

I'm going to be working on the website today and decided that I won't put it into maintenance mode unless I really have to. What this means for you, however, is that you may see some erratic behavior as you browse the site. The forum itself should continue to work without functionality issues (other than the bugs I'm working on), but it may display oddly at times. If you are okay with the display issues, you should still be able to participate in the forum.

I was going to put the whole site into maintenance mode, but thought I'd take a shot at some "cowboy coding" (working on a live site) and see how it goes. If it doesn't go very well and stuff is just too messy, I'll go ahead and start maintenance mode.

You've been warned! 😉

So far, so good. There's some general appearance issues left and the "Online Members" widget isn't working on forum-related pages, but other than that, seems to overall be a good thing.

The old design framework I was using started moving in a different direction that I didn't like, plus it seemed to be causing problems (hence the image upload issue). So I took this opportunity to upgrade and fix a few things, knowing full well that I'd likely have to tweak some things in the coming days/weeks.

I've also made everything more mobile-friendly. I do believe the site is overall faster now as well. 🙂

Where is the recent posts button?

EDIT:  nm ~ I think I found it.

sorry.

EDIT x2:  maybe not.  Looks like it is time for me to learn new habits here.  A good thing to keep the brain learning.

Oh I see. The menu icon is shoved off the screen by the unusually large logo.... 😉

Hey Wendell,

Can you please make more space between the cancel and the Reply buttons.

I'm fat fingering my posts to oblivion.

@jitterboogie 

I've just finished up several styling tweaks, one of which should make these buttons a lot easier to use on mobile phones. 🙂
