Re: Please use the 'Temporary Chat Section' for now

Thanks for all the hard work youíre putting in Azz .
Similar to a local community Facebook site Iím on I was happy when it was announced it could now be seen white text on a black background which I do prefer .
Would there be a chance of that in here?
I can put my iPads into Dark Mode but not all site pages come up white text on black background .

Re: Please use the 'Temporary Chat Section' for now

Hi Azz, did you say earlier that we'd have to re-post all our albums when the new forum is up & running, plus any photo's in threads? If so does that mean we can post photo's more than once because at the moment we can only post a photo once & this forum doesn't let you post it elsewhere again?
Thank you. Looking forward to the new OFF.

You're welcome Zuleika and unfortunately there won't be a dark mode, sorry. Having to maintain multiple styles is a bit of a chore, and it also dilutes our brand a bit - so for now at least there won't be a 'dark' theme/mode (sorry!)

We'll have a 'Your Photos' section where you can post threads to replace albums - so you could have multiple threads in there or just one and put all your photos in there. You should be able to post more than once (tho it's generally better to just post a link to where it is originally posted - as that way you keep all the comments in one place )

It will hopefully all become clearer when it goes live tho (and I am hoping that isn't much longer!)

If you look at Tiffany's profile you'll see albums in the right hand side Mups: https://www.over50sforum.com/member.php?u=2437

The new forum doesn't not have albums but we will have a 'Your Photos & Art' section where you can start threads and then post photos in there. So Tiffany could start a thread about birds to replace her Birds album and call it something like "Tiffany's Bird Photos" - then post her photos in ther

So does that mean we won't be able to post a photo to any thread outside of the 'Your Photos & Art' section? That would be a shame, because sometimes a thread is started without necessarily having an intention of including photos (or videos for that matter) but then as the thread progresses, photos are added to illustrate a point, say. Will we lose this kind of spontaneity?

I'm fairly sure this just applies to Profile Albums, Sheba....like you name a thread and just put your photo's in there. The new forum has masses of space now, so I think we can still post photos & videos as part of a conversation.

Thanks Pixie. I was pretty sure I'd got my knickers in a twist with overthinking this!!!
