Not so nice display for diagram :


Yes, as you point out this is a CSS problem which is altering the Table dimensions of the numbers and letters around the board. I'm trying to track it down at the moment, but if there are any CSS experts out there with suggestions ... ? Undecided


I can make a temporary fix (until someone can suggest a permanent change?! Undecided) that removes the numbers and letters down the side (and also the arrow) so there is just the board and pieces, which will look neater. Any views on this?

I cannot see the date and the of each individual post once I logged in. Does anyone else have the problem?


I hadn't noticed it on mine, have you tried refreshing the page a few times?


Tried all that and still not date stamp. It is useful info especially when someone revives an old thread.

I'd be glad to do some sorting of posts in the e4 e5 and d4 d5 forums.


OK, good, I'll add a couple of sub-boards, any preferences?

Also, how do I specify my time zone?  I can't see the option in my User CP.


I've just added the option to choose your time zone. Wink

Btw, the problematic balloons on the index page - what purpose do they serve??


Agreed, it's redundant info, so I've removed them. Wink

I think there is a field "posted on" but it is not being filled at the moment. You can see the field when you are typing a reply and in the topic summary below the reply box.
PS I just noticed that on the main page, there is also no date and time to the post in the "Last Post" column.

One of the major improvements is the use of sub-boards which will mean we can divide the openings into sub variations (for example, in the French section we can have one board for Winawer, one for Tarrasch, etc.) which should greatly help navigation on the Forum.


I'm going to start adding more of these, and thoughts on which ones and any added info like ECO codes, etc. are very welcome.
Moving the threads is an enormous job so any help from Moderators would be much appreciated - dom has already suggested helping with the French.

Maybe a world wide tournament calender - if anyone wants to manage it?


That's a good idea.

None, as far as I can see, as they don't give any extra info. This bug is presently being fixed.

Btw2, another little bug seems to be a font problem - there are some ?-icons showing up in different texts, sometimes. the 3 Swedish extra letters å ä ö among them, not here but in the text to the left...


Yes, this has been fixed now. Smiley

Can we "hide" the moved threads ? ... Board Topics list is too long with these lines


I simply delete them as soon as I've finished moving threads, but must have forgotten some, will sort them immediately.

Tony, are you the only one who can create sub-forums, or can the moderators? I haven't seen a tool for that yet.


Just me, but you can then move the threads over, of course.

This is pretty exciting!

I'll take a look at the 1.e4 e5 section. That could definitely benefit from subsections.
