The New CPTDB Forum and Wiki

Recommended Posts

Welcome to the new CPTDB Forum and Wiki!

As you can see, some things look and function differently. We're now running on a new, faster server, and the latest version of both the forum and wiki software, each of which offer numerous new features, upgrades, bug fixes, and security improvements.

As before, how you login to the forum and wiki has changed. To login to the forum, you now use your display name (what is shown next to your posts). To login to the wiki, you now use your original forum username. To gain access to the wiki, you may need to reset your password, which can be done from here.

Some elements of forum posts, like quotes, links, and emoticons may not currently display correctly. This should resolve itself over the next few days as older posts are processed and updated. Additionally, some pages on the Wiki may load slowly while thumbnails are regenerated - this should only happen once per page.

Let us know what you think! Feel free to post or PM me if you encounter any issues with the new site or with logging in.

Thanks!

I noticed immediately you guys went with a red background, and when a reply happens I hear a beep. the negative is I couldn't find the wiki unless I'm missing something

Is there a way that you can add HTML codes in the Wiki?  There's one code that I would like to use to vertically stack a couple of characters.

Which code were you looking to use?

How do I get out of the mobile-friendly site?

The new site is 'responsive' so there's no mobile friendly site per se, just one design that automatically scales to the size of your device. Was there something in particular you found missing from the full version?

<div class="stack2">A<br>B</div>1

The code above would display "A" on top of "B" and the size of both letters would be smaller than the "1".

Thanks! I'll look into it and get back to you.

I feel this update have made this site a lot slower than previous update. 

The server itself should be faster than before - however, right now the forum software is still working on upgrading older posts and topics and may be marginally slower as a result.

So, it is going to get faster once everything is complete?

Could you add more colored themes, including a pink theme?  Other colors could include green, orange, purple, and gray.

I was thinking that. But I like how you now can choose a least two colours now.

We're still working on the themes. Thanks for the suggestion!

I notice that photo attachments previously uploaded are now missing. I guess they haven't be transferred over to the new system.

Attachments should start reappearing in the coming days as the forum processes older posts.

FYI, I tried logging into the Wiki, and it isn't taking my password.  I even tried resetting my password, and I am not getting the email to reset it.

Quick question, what is the community reputation thing ? 

We're trying out a new thing where you can "like" posts. Each like adds one point to a member's reputation.
