Queries following software update of 20.2.19

Recommended Posts

Since the upgrade, some pictures seem to have remained but, on both my PC and my iPad, some have disappeared (including mine). Have others noticed this?

Apparently, yes.  Hopefully someone will be on here with a solution soon.

I suspect it may be because of how Users have uploaded their profile picture.  I changed mine when the major upgrade happened and my avatar had disappeared.

I had previously used Gravatar as recommended to upload my photograph.  When the last major upgrade happened I discovered that I could just choose one of my photos.

 

The photo must be less than 500K in size so I emailed it to myself using the "small image" option to reduce t the size, saved the emailed image and then just selected it using the browse facility.  This has worked.

What is this "system upgrade" banner that has appeared across the top of my balletcoforum page?

I do not click on such things without knowing about them.

If there's been info on this, my apologies, I haven't noticed it.

Info and advice,, please

 

Margaret

It is exactly what it says it is! i.e. an announcement that the forum software was upgraded last night and to post here if you have new problems. It'll go away tomorrow night.

I found it nerve wracking the first time round trying to get an image there with Gravatar....I'm not sure I could do the above!!

 

Also are the colours by our name initial just random....can you change the colour at least?

Random as far as I am aware.

Hi - I'm reading the forum on an android phone. Since the system upgrade, the pages jump around during and after loading, as if images are being loaded and the scroll isn't anchored (although images aren't loading, as far as I can tell).

As Jan says we have no control over the profile initials' colour.

 

It should be simple to upload a profile image. Click on your existing avatar to get the dialog shown below. Select Upload Photo, then choose the photo from your computer or stored on another device. Trying the latter case I encountered a file size limit of 50Kb. Gravatar has been dropped from the list of available options.

The pages are still jumping for me. It happens when I scroll to near the bottom of a page. The whole page jumps upwards so that the post above the final post on the page comes back into view too.

We appear to just have had another (unannounced?) update.  Guess it must have been important for them not to leave it until a more appropriate time?

Alison:  You posted 8 minutes ago - and I agree that there was something odd on some, but not all, pages around that time - but happily all seems OK now.

The main page had a "we're updating"-type message and a "Try Again" button around about 22:40.  It lasted quite a while - or perhaps I was just unlucky.

I'd assumed it must have been unplanned, from the timing :)

I am sure my profile picture has just disappeared this morning - in other words it was there following the upgrade. has anyone else lost theirs  and do I need to upload a new pic again?

Mine's still there.

Just to reiterate that the pages are still jumping for me. Every time I first scroll to the bottom of a page, it jumps up again. When I scroll down a second time, it remains. It's *really* annoying!!
