Thread for your feedback!

Please note, there will be some individual cases where it's not looking perfect in their browser, so when you state any problem you may have, appreciate it's probably just you.

The thread will be dealt with by Jester and Mark over the coming days. I'll do what I can, but I'm useless at such things, so appreciate I probably won't be the one who'll know.

Awesome, quick work!

Page doesn't resize properly; there is a horizontal scroll bar at the bottom, and the advertisement/'booster site' frame falls off the right side of the page. Same problem on Firefox.v23, Tor, IE.v10 and Chrome.v29.

probably due to the server move, I updated the site only 20 minutes ago, might need time to push the update through....

Very fast too! Did you change servers?

As I said on the Downtime thread:

The headings are all in one row on the forum pages, but the home page and all news pages show the headings Unmanned and Other on a second row.  This persists even if I make the window full screen. I'm using Safari on a Mac.

The forum pages are wider.  I don't know how to describe the width in terms of pixels, but the logo is closer to the headline bar on the home page.

Anyway, that's the only problem I can see, and it's a minor cosmetic flaw which doesn't affect functionality.  Great job, everyone.  The new look is very nice.

I just corrected the server time settings, can you take a look at your profile again (http://forum.nasaspaceflight.com/index.php?action=profile;) and see if the time there is displayed correctly for you ? After that, try again in tapatalk

This rev included a new server package, but the speed is likely the upgraded database.

(Not that I know about such things ;))

ctrl-shift-r refresh didn't help.

Screen resolutions is 1024x768.

Not having this problem with other websites.

<edit>
one of the bars up top says this;  "element {    width: 1080px;"
is that a problem?

In all three browsers on my macbook (chrome, FF and Safari) I couldn't reproduce it. Will try this when I'm back in the office and can try this on a desktop Mac.

Did a search in Tapatalk. When used the login button I see a popup with "Access Denied. This forum is currently not available, please try again later."

Was just looking at it :). I'll add some CSS rules to scale back on 1024 screens, will be online tomorrow hopefully.

It was before, but now it isn't.  It shows 3:09 pm and my actual time is 8:09.  I'm in the -4 time zone, which is set correctly in my profile.

The latest posts here are offset by five hours for me -- showing 3 pm whereas it's 8 pm local here, just past 'all zeros', 9 September in UTC.  My profile is -4 offset, with that page saying "Current forum time: 09/08/2013 07:10 PM"...which is off by one.

Server time is :

Sun Sep  8 19:12:27 CDT 2013

(based in Dallas)

Calculated from there, are you still in -4 ? My profile is showing (with auto-detect) a +6 difference from Dallas which is correct.

I corrected the time by:

"Profile"

"Look and Layout"

Then this.....remember, the host is in Texas, so for me it was six hours - and autodetect did it right. Then go to the bottom and hit update or change.
