Well said.  Seconded.  smile

Can I "third" that? Sorry, I am just still so NOT in christmas mood, but I still hope everyone here has a good one. Since we got the news of my mom's cancer last year I kinda wished for a better announcement this year (like maybe that I am going to be an aunt sometime next year) but I doubt that's gonna happen.
I wanna visit New York and Copenhagen, too. Everyone travels the world and I am stuk here, it's just not fair.
OK, enough whining.

In Copenhagen? (Just kidding.) big_smile I don't even know if the trip is gonna happen. And if it does, I kinda doubt Anja and Constanze would like to meet the Fogler family. I, however, would certainly not say no.

Re: General site announcements and changes

All right, I have finally tackled the forum upgrade to the latest version. I don't think you should notice a lot of changes, the most noticeable probably the new BB code bar that has different buttons and smilies. I hope you're okay with using these smilies for now. It's always such a hassle to customize them, and it's already 11 PM where I live. This means some of the old smilies will probably not display right. I might go back and fix that some other time.

I also installed something called Fancybox that lets you open linked images in an embedded window. Here, try clicking the banner below:

Neat, no?

As usual, if you notice anything that's not working right, please let me know.

Re: General site announcements and changes

thanks for updating the software, it's great to have the smilies back and I also see some text edit functions I didn't see here before.

Yeah, I installed a new plugin for the formatting stuff. It'll be easier to upgrade than what we had before. Glad you like it.

The server guys are gonna do regular maintenance on the servers on April 18/19. If the site is down on those days, you'll know why. smile

Re: General site announcements and changes

This is just to let you know that a server upgrade (to newer versions of PHP and MySQL) is going to happen in the next day or two, during which chris-marquette.com (including the gallery and forum) will probably be down for several hours. Don't be disconcerted if you get error messages, the site will be back to normal after the server move.

Re: General site announcements and changes

Not sure anyone will even notice, but I've made one modification to our website today (the actual site, not the message board). It used to be squished to the left and statically stay there, even if you maximized the window. This worked reasonably well when I first designed the site some seven years ago, when people were still working with screens that had resolutions of 1280 and smaller.

However, these days with our widescreen monitors and larger resolutions, I think the site would work better if it dynamically centered. And I've changed that now. The main window should always be in the center, no matter what you do.

I've tested it with the latest versions of Firefox, IE, Chrome, Opera and Safari and also IE 8. Seems to work fine for me.

If you think it looks weird on your screens, please let me know. (You may have to click "Reload" a few times to see a change, the old site may still be stored in your cache.)

That said, I think I would program the site differently if I had to redo it today. And it could probably use a design overhaul, but I just don't have the time to redo the whole thing now. I hope it still serves our purpose the way it is.

Re: General site announcements and changes

I think it looks fine.  I almost always use Firefox and I'm on a widescreen monitor right now.  Looks normal.   smile

Re: General site announcements and changes

We wanted to quickly let you know that we've given chris-marquette.com a bit of a facelift. The content hasn't changed, but we've switched the site to a new content management system, which comes with a slightly different layout. Check it out if haven't already! We have a shiny new header image and everything.

If you notice any broken links or links that still lead to the old website, it'd be fabulous if you could let us know. Thanks!
