I just figured that out earlier too...
Yes, that's what I thought too, but I have the server settings at GMT - 5:00 (Eastern Time) and also my personal settings are the same but it keeps posting an hour into the future lol. I posted on their support forums, waiting to hear back, thanks for the suggestion oldschool ~I think I found a clue to the post timestamp problem. In user settings, Day Light Saving Time, dropdown selections are not registered correctly. I had to select "DST Always Off", in order to see corrected timestamps. Always On or Automatic should work.
Thanks for the feedback beatle ~only two i have left is the pics not opening big like ghost says. and
the large amount of stickies in the forum you have to scroll down every time. lets bunch them up and if they are for new members mostly make them read them before joining and posting. have them in one large sticky.
there is a sticky in the members forum that hasnt had a post in 5 years.
Yes, I am also in favor of less sticky clog up at the top. I would think by now vBulletin would have some options -- such as, at the very least only showing one time per visit, and not showing at all -- ever -- on pages 2, 3 etc beyond page 1.Thanks for the feedback beatle ~
Yes, the main issue still is the uploads / post photos and to fix it, we have to run some scripts on the database to convert the collation type to all be the same, UTF-8. I have personally never done this sort of thing before so we are looking for assistance from either VBulletin, our host (MDD). Also since its a little more involved, I am trying to plan a good time to tackle it where I can focus only on this while someone is available to help to the same time.
The same thing is also causing the funky characters you will see in the posts sometimes. Like instead of "What's" it will be "What?s" or similar things like that.
Hoping both will be solved with the one fix, coming as soon as we can!
The stickies, I agree with you beatle, we need to maybe manage them better in one thread (or most of them) but let's see what Steve thinks and we can try to improve it ~
Not sure how to do it in the "What's Going On?" module at the bottom of the page but if you actually click on the link that says users online or the link at the top that says "Who's online" it takes you to the detailed page:Would it be possible to show the names of "users online" as opposed to or including with their avatars?
As it is now you have to hover your mouse over each avatar to see the name.
....rather than redesign the software or make any changes to configuration.... why don't you just have one "sticky" post at the top of the forum and inside that one sticky post... you put links to the 4 or 5 threads that you want to be "stickies"?Yes, I am also in favor of less sticky clog up at the top.

Yea its quicker for sure!I just tried it... Being able to copy and paste a photo in a post is a huge upgrade and time saver IMO
