@ptoner - Many thanks for your posts. I will work on the fixes in due course. As regards the 'online users' display, this only shows the users who have added their own avatar image. I'll see what I can do to change this.

Problems I have found while using both Firefox and Internet Explorer, is that the text Send Message in the "Send Message" button (for private messages), and the text Send Reply in the "Send Reply" button (for private messages), and the text Post Update in the "Post Update" button, in all cases appear to be invisible, until I point at those buttons with my mouse arrow or mouse cursor.

Also, I have no idea of how to start a new thread, without asking the Keymaster Lashtal of this site, for help in posting the original post of the said thread. Clearing my browser’s cache have not helped.

On the positive side, the text Submit in the "Submit" button is visible, even without me pointing at it with my mouse arrow or mouse cursor.

Also, within my "account information", much is missing in the filters Posts, Comments, and Topics. Filters in the "drop down menu", or "drop down toolbar", or "pulldown menu", on the immediate right side of the term "Show:"

Under Posts I find only "Sorry, there was no activity found. Please try a different filter." (I have posted more than 300 posts.)

Under Comments, I find that I have only commented three times, and that on the same post. (Boleskine House, former home of Jimmy Page, destroyed by fire – The Scotsman ...)

Under Topics, I find that I have only started two Topics. (Evidence in Richard T. Cole’s Liber L. vel Bogus., and Crowley celebrating common era New Year’s Eve?)

@wellreadwellbred:

Thanks for reporting the problems you're experiencing with invisible buttons (!) - I'll take a look at this problem shortly.

You report a problem creating new topics, which is odd. It can only be done when you're at the right 'level' - i.e. you need to see a list of threads, not a series of posts. Take a look here, for example: http://www.lashtal.com/forums/forum/thelema-2/thelema/ - you should see an option to create a new topic near the bottom of the page.

Where are you viewing your 'account information'? By clicking on your username? If so, the drop down list seems to be confusing you: remember that the site was 'reset' in September last year and note also the potential confusion between 'Topics' 'Posts' (i.e. News items) and 'Replies'...

Sorry you're experiencing problems with the site.

Comments from established 'commenters' are no longer subjected to Moderation. In other words, if you've already had at least one Comment approved, then you won't have to wait for subsequent Comments to appear.

Just a note for information - as announced on the Facebook account and as a News item on the homepage here: I'm applying a significant set of changes to modernise the look and feel of the site, ultimately speeding-up load times and increasing functionality. Please forgive any interruptions over the next couple of days: normal service will be resumed.

Apologies for the 'Under Construction' page that was inadvertently displayed for most members overnight.

I love the new layout... only one question: where do I find the Thelemic Time tool? Need to update the link on the AMeTh Lodge's website!

I've contacted the site's technical admin, @eol, and he will take the necessary action to get it repaired.

Thanks for bringing it to my attention - apologies for any inconvenience.

Dear all,

I am performing a major upgrade of our server. It will take a couple of hours to complete but once done I will be able to re-enable Thelemic Time Server. The process may make LAShTAL feel a bit slow, I apologize for that. I will post further updates on this thread.

My work is done. LAShTAL is now fully upgraded and I managed to fix Time Server too: http://date.lashtal.com/date 🙂

Thank you so much, @eol - members here won't be aware of the amount of work you put into technical administration of this site. It is, though, very much appreciated. Good to have the Thelemic Date (TTS) back online!

Similar to the previous upgrade, the forums (main page and subsidiary pages) are listed in a very hard to read, light blue on white, font. Is there any chance we can get the font darkened for readability purposes?

I managed to fix the latest issue that happened when Wordpress was upgraded to version 4.7 bbPress is a complete mess in every way possible (never use it!!) and I had to do all sorts of voodoo to make the damn thing work. Everything seems OK but if you do notice something not working properly let us know. I am working on a way to migrate from bbPress to something sane but the whole thing is one hell of a task. It will be done I just can't make promises when exactly.

Dear all,
I have upgraded our forums to the latest BETA version of bbPress. Developers claim a bunch if improvements that should speed things up and add new features. Developers tend to exagerate in my experience. However, things should work a bit better now and with a bit of luck the final version of bbPress 2.6 should bring a lot of features that we'd like to see. I have been looking for a solution to migrate out of this mess called bbPress but it will be pretty hard to do so. Furthermore, none of the forums I have checked support integreation with WP. So, we're stuck with bbPress for now. I will keep looking for a batter solution.

I do miss the old forum interface, and never minded the double log-in. I would gladly login three times/visit to get it back
