General forum updates

Can I make everyone aware of a few new, fancy adds? :lol:

1. We have moods people! To get creative, go to the User Control Panel and save!
2. I've activated some more BBC codes, so you can now use the center and spoiler tags.

Just a small note on the spoiler tags: please do use them, unless you're posting in a thread that is meant to discuss a particular show or episode. :wink:

Oh that's great! I'd been looking for spoiler tags before myself, but I hadn't found them yet. Good idea darling :yes:

Re: General forum updates

Two more, small updates...

* I have listed the subforums in the parent-forum's legends, to point people in the right direction if they want to open up new topics. (and to make sure the subforums are not overlooked, of course)

* I have added a new board to the media section (called ''interviews'') where radio- and television interviews with Joanna can be posted. The media section had nearly four pages, which made it quite hard to find particular topics.

Thanks girls! There's one more fancy add: you can now enter your favourite Joanna show in the user control panel. When opening your profile page by clicking on your user name, it will pop up. :wink:

Re: General forum updates

Thanks girls! I've made a few changes again: the custom profile field (''favourite show'') is now a dropdown box. As soon as you select your favourite show, your pick will also show up in your profile next to your post! I'm sorry, but I'm going to have to ask your to repick your favourite show. :wink: Thanks!

Oh by the way, the default style is now prosilver Special Edition. Due to the work behind the scenes, your personalised forum style might have changed. Sorry about that!

Mine has remained intact, but the one that appears before I login has changed, which is fine--I just thought my computer had gone haywire again for a second! Phew! :lol:

Off to repick my show. Boy, what a tough decision. :whistle:

I know. I have two favourite Joanna shows: AbFab and Sensitive Skin, but because I have a feeling most members are going to pick AbFab (sixth sense, that is) I'm gonna go with SS.

Happy picking! :lol:

I've looked everywhere and can't find the dropdown menu to pick a show. :no:

Re: General forum updates

You should go to your user control panel and then to profile. Scroll down, there should be a dropdown menu on the bottom of the page. Please don't tell me it's only showing up for me. :lol: (or is anyone else having this problem?)

That's the first place I checked. Sorry, but there's nothing there. Could it be because I'm on the Anna layout? :unsure:

That thought had already crossed my mind as well, so that's why I just switched to the Anna lay, and the button's still there for me...

That is puzzling. I don't know what to say. I'll look again, but I don't think I'll be any more successful... :huh:

You're right Timeless, it wasn't you - I forgot to change some more settings. It should be fixed now - try again. :wink:

Oh nooooos, this is too hard :lol:
How on earth am I going to pick a favourite show? Shall I be really rebellious and pick Class Act or Sapphire & Steel or something? :lolol:

Re: General forum updates

Haha, come on, be daring babe! I'm quite rebellious too at the moment, but there's no guarantee I'll won't switch to AbFab in a couple of days haha.

Oh by the way, if anyone's got some more suggestions for series? I think I've listed the most important shows, but tips are always welcome.

Re: General forum updates

Right, I've picked Class Act for now, just to be different. My decision is very likely to change though :lol:
