Edit: It looks like the edit icon disappears after a set period of time....
I just checked the settings and the edit is available for 30 minutes after a post is made. Seems reasonable to me, but if people want to I can change it to always be available. Let me know.

Cheers

Forum Upgrade and Adding Images to Posts

Hi guys, I've just finished moving the forum to a new server and upgrading the software to the latest phpBB3. There should be a few extra features in the new version. You can also now add images directly to posts, so no more messing around with photobucket type sites. To add an image, go to Attachme...

Hi Paul, i don't really follow. After you log in it asks you what username you want to use? What are the options it gives you? Can you provide a screenshot?

Thanks

Re: READ THIS FIRST BEFORE OTHER THREADS: Login Failing

Hi, I've made another update to the cookie settings which I believe was causing the problem. If you are still having issues try: 1) At the bottom of the forum click the link that says "Delete All Board Cookies". 2) Delete your chrome history. To do this click the 3 dots in the top right. Then More T...

Re: READ THIS FIRST BEFORE OTHER THREADS: Login Failing

Hi guys, Sorry you've been having issues with the forum. A couple of weeks ago I started an upgrade to the latest version (3.2.2) but it didn't work. After many hours trying to find a solution I've instead opted for the more stable 3.1.12 which is still a lot newer than 3.1.2 which we were on before...

Re: caprisport 260mm brakes

Yo Jon,

Long time ago, but I remember I had to drill the struts, removing the threads, to make the bolts go through. I also had to grind a bit off the strut somewhere too. Give Andy Craig a shout, he was my mentor for the brake conversion, had the brackets cut and supplied the bolts.

Re: New Forum Software

Yes links will be added when I get a chance to revise the template. The wiki and laser page main site are still at their original addresses (as posted above). Thanks for all the feedback.

Im surprised they didnt try to sell the Mustang in the UK earlier. I expect it will sell very well, if nothing else the name alone will sell it.
