So, I have been very busy this week. We have had some new things added to the forum to make the place even better! 

We strive to be the best and offer you guys everything you need to make this place user friendly, to make your time here more enjoyable. 

Here are some of the upgrades we have had this week, and an update on some of the other function the site has that you may not know about

Notifications!! 

Notifications were a big thing. And now, we have them!!

Above the main menu you will see a bell, this is the notification bell, if it is orange, you have unread notifications. Click it, to see what they are. Likes are displayed with a thumbs up, and replies to comments are labeled with speech bubbles. 

As the site has grown, this was a much needed feature, it is very useful, I hope you like it :).

New Image Uploader

We have an upgraded media attachment system now. Attaching a file was always easy, but now it will be much faster, as it now takes less clicks. There is a separate gallery for your media, where you can find pictures in your gallery, and upload them again if you want to use them in different posts. This is also a good place to check back through all your pics and diary updates. 

Preview and Save draft Posts

Sometimes posts can become long, and sometimes they can take a lot of work to complete! On some occasion, you may lose connection with the site. Your battery may die, internet connection might be weak, many things. 

To prevent you losing posts, that you are working on, you can now save drafts, and also, your posts will be auto saved every 2 mins ( i know how easy it is to forget to save ) lol. Better to have it, and not need it, then not have it and loose a thousands word post lol. 

Along with this, you can now preview a post before you post it. If you're like me, you do your best proofreading after a post is put up 😉 Now you get to preview it, before it is posted, so you can see how the post will look. 

Quoting parts of Posts

This is an old feature, but you may not be aware of it. To quote a certain part of someones post, highlight the text as if you were going to copy and paste it. When you do this, those words will be highlighted in green, with 2 speech marks next to it. Highlight the text you want to quote, and click the speech marks, this will add the quote to the reply box. Nice and easy. 

Top bar Profile Widget

You will see a new widget, that displays your avatar and username at the top of the site. This will give you easy access to log in, on all pages of the site. Once logged in, you will see your avatar and username, followed by the notification bell. Underneath those you will see some boxes. Those are to give you easy access to your profile, your account, messages, subscribed threads, and more. 

These are just the new big things, there is still more. You can now send images via PM, new posts are displayed with a "new" orange box to so you can tell what you have read and haven't read easily. 

There are a few more thing i have my eye one, that i hope will be coming soon.... cant give you everything in one update right? 😉 Night mode will be coming soon, and a choice of themes too. Just let me recoup from this madness I have been through this week lol. 

I hope you enjoy the upgrades everyone, we work hard to bring you the site you want, if there is anything else that you think the site could do with, Let me know, if its a good idea, I'll get it done. 

Much love Percy Growers, Thanks for being here and making these upgrades worth doing! This place is amazing, and its all because of you guys! I know a lot of work is done by the admin team, but we only do it because we have a quality community to keep happy. Without you guys, it's not worth it! Seriously, thanks for sharing this incredible site with us. Your input has made it what it is today. 

Have fun, I hope you enjoy the new upgrades Smile
