    Exclamation Major Upgrade - New Features

    I have just upgraded the forum software from vBulletin 3.8 to 4.1.x. This is a major upgrade and it caused some downtime which I hope wasn't too much of an inconvenience.

    The upgrade is still ongoing, but I have reopened the forums. However, you may experience glitches and unexpected behavior in the near future. Please report any problems you encounter here.

    Not only the forum software itself has been updated, but I have bought the full publishing package for Talk Classical, which means, amongst other things, that every member can now have a fully featured personal blog as well!

    There are lots of new features, and bound to be some teething problems, so please excuse any annoyances.

    Finally, as you can see the site has reverted to the default look of vBulletin. The old style was not compatible with the new software, but as soon as I'm sure everything is working, the next project will be to make a new look for TC. For now, I have increased the width of the forums which previously was optimized to 800x600 screen size. It's now optimized to 1024x768.

    Enjoy all the new functions, and feel free to ask any questions. I'll try to answer them the best I can

    Best regards,
    Frederik

    At first I was little dissapointed with the new 'look', but your post clears that up. Thanks.
    I like the new features too!

    Thanks for doing it, Frederik. I liked the pastel colors but this blue look is good too, in my opinion.

    Regarding bugs, here's what I got when I logged in: "Page generated in 1,302,524,522.71709 seconds with 20 queries."

    Other than that, the upgrade seems alright. Does this mean we can change our own signatures and avatars now?

    The new site looks great! It will probably take some adjusting to, but just about everything does.

    But I do have a question regarding the scroll-bars that seem to appear at the right side of every post. I don't really get why they're there. Are they even supposed to be there?

    I love the new design. It looks slick and modern looking. Frankly, the previous design is becoming antiquated and long on tooth.. Great job, Magle and staff! Congratulations..

    How I wish we could have a mobile version of the site. Posting in N8, is really irritating and slow..

    Something tells me I'm going to like this a lot in the coming days... but where the heck is the "new posts" link?

    Thanks a lot, I'll be exploring this today.

    I like the blog feature, by the way. I just established mine, very smooth.

    I don't mind the latest appearance of this site at all and I wouldn't complain if it stayed like it. Good effort, people.

    I only seem to have access to the 'quick reply' box, can't do a proper reply.

    I have clicked on '+ Reply to Thread' Is that right?

    In Forum Tools, 'Mark This Forum Read' doesn't seem to be working.

    Sorry if I seem to be nit-picking - I love the upgrade
