Enjoy.

Let me know if you have any questions or run into issues.

One thing I noticed is that previous youtube embeds don't work anymore. New embeds should work fine. If you want to fix an old one you can edit it and remove the url except the last part, so [youtube]https://youtu.be/3LGDI_oz1Dg[/youtube] would become [youtube]3LGDI_oz1Dg[/youtube]If you want to embed a video from now on just click the youtube icon and insert the full youtube link. Same with images.

Looks great. Bathtub Man survived! I can't see an easy way to make him scoot across the screen anymore though  :cry:

how did you log in now?

there's a login link in the top bar (when you're logged out)

searchinbig

Not seeing it on my computer, only says "HOME" and "SIGN UP".

I logged in by clicking on your name, then it asked me for my log in info.

Maybe cause I'm at work??

I had to do the same thing to login.  When I just clicked the link at the top of the page it gave me an error.

what does the error say exactly?

Cameron

It just said "error"

Works now though.

I'm going to take this opportunity to jump to conclusions.  We have this upgraded, fancy new forum because the band is going to announce their new live album and additional dates soon.

I have to admit, something like that crossed my mind to. New Roll Call to Please.  :beer:

The main login is now via a popup screen so a really aggressive adblocker might indeed block it. Turning it off for this site should solve it.

Does everyone else get the "webpage not secure" warning when they go to login?

GO4IT

Not I, and I have Norton on my laptop that has warned me about other sites.

I did not get that either.

Are people able to login to the Forum on an iPhone since the Forum upgrade?  Tried to today and received an error.
