Hi all,

Welcome to your new ZRoadster.org experience 😍 <--- new emoji btw!

Grab yourself a cuppa, sit down and have a good look around. Use this thread to ask questions, show others new stuff you've found or generally discuss whatever you feel you need to about the new site ;)

First off, I've realised that the old "like" scoring has transferred across to the new Reaction scoring system .

<--- oh my, is that an image "in line" with the text? You bet your backside it is =))

See, I've found some nifty stuff already.

I will still be tinkering around with the settings in the background so you may get kicked out at some stage again.

Gaz

I've changed the default Reactions to : Like / Dislike / Haha / Wow / Sad / Thank You. Think that covers the range of emotions we require.

Didn't like the idea of one labelled Angry, you should all be chilled out on here. Not that fussed with Dislike either, but I have to give some of you an avenue for grumpiness 🙈

Actually, slight change of plan. One common issue previously was hitting Dislike by mistake, so I've moved that reaction to the opposite end. No mistakes now or claiming fat fingers now ;) Worst case, you try and dislike something and you end up thanking that person instead 🤣

Will the bookmarks be making a re-appearance at some point. I had quite a lot of obscure material bookmarked in case I needed it one day :)

Confession time, I completely forgot about existing bookmarks 🤦‍♂️. I'll need to have a look in to whether I can get them back or not, they will be stored in a database table but the code that provides them has been removed. I'll stick it on my snagging list.

I was just about to look in to that, then Andy replied and I then saw this!

That's default functionality now it seems, was previously part of the theme I haven't got around to installing yet.

Primarily the theme is to provide a dark version which some find kinder on the eyes.

To be honest I found the “to the bottom“ button very useful. Can it be brought back?

Tony.

I've paid for the customisable themes from the same company that produced the last ones, so I'm pretty sure that functionality will be in there. We'll find out when I've installed them I guess!

Thanks mate, sorry if I appeared impatient.

No, all good Tony. Things are always frantic with a big change like this, I was expecting my list to grow and if people don't point stuff out it won't get added. 🐼 <--- random panda emoji....
