BGO - The road less traveled

Greetings, all.

This is a general-purpose thread to keep you up to date on known glitches and other things we're still working on as the paint dries around here. It's also where we invite you to tell us about any bugs you might find running around along the baseboards that we need to add to the fumigation list.

***​

1) "Edit" button - the Edit button in posts on the Forums works, but requires two clicks instead of the customary one. Not a 'double-click' so much as two distinct clicks. You'll see. It's a bug that popped up when we added one of the various site modifications. We're bringing in outside help, hopefully in the next couple of days, to hunt down and eliminate the little ****. FIXED

2) Portal load times - you may experience some delay in load times on the front page. We're looking into whether it's a technical issue or simply a matter of having enough graphics and moving parts on the page to tax all but the fastest computer connections. Please bear with us on that one, and please be patient--we'd like to think it's worth the wait. FIXED


3) Graphics issue - on a few pages (Online Users, BGO Gallery) you'll see a graphics issue with some text overlaid/blocked out by a strong black line. As we've discovered, that's a flaw in the site template that even the designer was unable to fix without altering the entire template. Nothing you will need in order to operate the site is compromised, so until we get that one resolved--and we will--we're going to pretend it's a beauty mark. FIXED (with a couple minor exceptions)

4) Avatar selection - we are working on a permanent avatar display page that will show the complete collection to everyone. Until it's complete, if you have already registered, in order to see all four "tiers" you will either need to be logged out, or a Premium Member (with default access to all Tiers). FIXED


For a breakdown of how the tier system is set up, please check the BGO Features thread in this forum.

5) The Video Vault (premium feature) is still under construction. It's functional currently (you can link to videos if you are a premium member) but some of the bells and whistles aren't completed there yet. But they will be :) FIXED

6) As the title states, clicking the "refresh image" link during registration didn't refresh the image. FIXED

7) The PM notification on the homepage doesn't always immediately refresh after reading a PM and clicking on the 'Home' button. FIXED

***​

We'll keep this thread updated with fixes as we complete them, as well as add any issues you might find as we put the place through its initial paces. Thanks for your patience and assistance, and happy hunting.

1. Of course the Search function works. What a curious question.

2. Uh, no ... I did.

Hey, this is easy. :cool4:
