Re: New JBonamassa.com Site

BIG thanks to whoever got the blue back on the forum!!! (hope noone liked the red more....)
Don't know its permanent but I noticed it this afternoon
and I feel like an ^%$(*&^ to say it but now I don't know when I am logged in - I got used to it! big_smile - but I can just go into my profile and switch the theme for when I am logged in.
FWIW if anyone didn't know I also adjusted how many posts per page there. Its helpful if searching for a term in a thread - did a long time ago - I forget what the default is prob 25..i upped it to 75 - that way its less pages to use my 'find' feature if I am looking for something specific. ex, in the 6 words or less thread in off topics, I do my best not to repeat myself but ten years of posts...so I do try to search blahblah..... wink

At first I thought I had forgotten to log out, lol. It is nice to have it back to being blue. Feels like home again smile

Hey we all got the blues again!

Your rock candy baby
Your hard sweet and sticky

Re: New JBonamassa.com Site

They had said when they changed to red/black had said.
If you go under your profile and set it to I think classic it's the old colour scheme.

But even if you've changed it to blue, if you don't sign in you'll see the red/black till you do.

Last I read about that

Re: New JBonamassa.com Site

The forum has reverted to the original blue, but when I log in, it goes red again!
C'est la vie.

Lester..

He took it all too far,
but boy, could he play guitar.

Re: New JBonamassa.com Site

Hi Lester, when you are logged in, if you go to your profile, then to settings, under the 'date' there is a drop down box for "Available styles" carbon is black background with green and orange letters, oxygen is this blue, jamesross is the red, and hydrogen is a deeper blue.
Well on my laptop anyway, but that is how to change what it looks like when logged in......

Re: New JBonamassa.com Site

Apologies if this has previously been mentioned and I'm sure its something that pre-dates the new look web site & forum, but for a while now I've not been getting email notification when new posts have been added to subscribed threads.
No big deal, as there's indicators that posts have been added to threads but some are of more interest than others.

I think the forum is of much lesser importance unfortunately

Hi Banshee, we've been trying to trouble shoot this a bit.
Another user mentioned the same thing. I gave it a try - never had used it before.
It worked for me (and its working for JBWM) but I noticed that it said something - regarding the fact that you won't get new notices on the same thread - until you log in again, like if you get a notice that a new post has been made on a thread you subscribed to - you won't get another notice about that thread until you read it when logged in?

not sure if that was any different than before as I never tried to subscribe before. and I promptly unsubscribed after testing it before - i look tooooo often - and don't need extra emails. Obviously you log in often though BansheeUK, thanks for spam report work (thanks to others who do so too)! I'll do my best to try to help get this working. Its working for JBWM so...IDK - the more details the better I guess. I'll try to experiment more soon.




and yea Ron, I think you are saying the forum is lesser importance to the office than the rest of the site, but this place is important to me so I'll put the extra effort. The office will work with us if we are nice and patient. Easier said than done but I have A lot of my ♥ invested here so I'll take what I can get.

Re: New JBonamassa.com Site

Keep up the good work Jane. I always need a good fix at least three times a day. big_smile

Thanks for taking the time to look into this; as I said, no biggy but I found it handy getting a heads up if someone had replied to a post/thread and I hadn't been able to pick it up for a few days and it had slipped back a couple of pages.

Happy to help out with the spam reporting; as moderator on another forum I know what a nuisance they can be.

Re: New JBonamassa.com Site

I've reported a lot of spam recently and as I usually visit at least three times a day will continue to do so. It mainly seems to come overnight US time, just in time for my work fix at about 8am UK. big_smile

Come on the Blades (sorry Idolbone just had to borrow your line)

Re: New JBonamassa.com Site

You rock for that and thank you for your previous encouragement big_smile
Seems like they have been cleaning it up more promptly too.
kind of curious to me that some of the newer user names that are obviously spammers - don't want to repost the names in case that stirs them up - but they register and don't post?

anyway regarding the subscription issue, I'll give it test again and try to pay attention with the being logged in thing I was trying to explain above

It's Alive, It's Alive, it's alive..... whatever you jabbed with a screwdriver or walloped with your shoe, it's working again; I'm getting notifications of posts. Many thanks and may your bathrooms be free of tigers.

Re: New JBonamassa.com Site

I'm not scared of no tigers...I have toothpicks!! big_smile

I am glad its working....I did not do anything...actually i got the notification you posted here and thought to myself oh gee I still haven't figured a good way to test it because I log in so often...had a few things to try but hadn't.....

smile
Hope it works for everyone, perhaps it had to do with going back to blue? or something new, IDK but yay!!!

Re: New JBonamassa.com Site

It appears the Main Site is down (since late yesterday) ... but not the Store ... and luckily ... not the Forum. smile

(Doubt ....but wonder if related to that Cyberattack on Dyn Inc. yesterday? (a NH based firm that provides internet traffic management.))

Something odd is going on, I can't open the site using my bookmark/favourites but can if I do a google search or just type in the website details.
This has been happening since Saturday.

Lester.

Re: New JBonamassa.com Site

I can't access the forum from my perspective.  But I can through my phone.

Bet it has to the DOS attack
