    18th July 2017: Recent Downtime

    Sorry about the recent downtime that started around 11pm (UK time) & ended around 8am (UK time). This was due to an issue at the Data Centre which has now been resolved.

    New Look Budgie Community Forums Discussion

    Some people do pop by from time to time, tho the forum isn't as active as it once was. I check this forum on an almost weekly basis, but am unable to give advice about birds due to never having owned any. I'm mainly here as a forum maintainer and support. The Netsta, does check in here from time to time as well.

    15-Nov-2016: Downtime

    Hi All. Sorry for the unexpected downtime yesterday, which started at around 8:30am (UK time) and ended around 2:15pm (UK time). It was due to a power issue to the server. I apologise for any inconvenience caused by this.
  8. I am looking into this and on using the fast reply box to reply to this topic, both bars work fine for me. What browser are you using to access these forums ?

    Faq Section Search Errors

    That looks like a 406 error message. I have raised a ticket with Data Centre to get this resolved. It is caused by the server's security systems that are in place.

    Try clicking the photo. Should show the photo in it's original size it was uploaded as (the forum auto-resizes photos that are bigger than a set size (640x480 I think), but allows photos to be clicked to see photo in it's original size). Clicking the photo also allows you to save the photo (in it's original size). Hope this helps.

    Member Profiles - About Me Tab

    Issue resolved. About Me tab was discontinued in 3.2, and so intergrated into the main Profile View page (Overview). EDIT - About Me tab has now been removed, after following advise from support ticket I raised.
  13. Getting this error when clicking About Me tab within any member profile page... Error: Could not load template 'tabAboutMe' from group 'profile' EDIT - I am aware of this error. It is caused by the upgrade from 3.1.2 to 3.3.2 as About Me is no longer a tabbed option in 3.3.x. I have raised a ticket about this with the forum software developers to resolve this as soon as possible. Will reply to this topic when this has been resolved.
