Dearest members of this little Fountain Pen Nuthouse on the digital prairie,

Recently, we upgraded the board software. We want to keep the software as up-to-date as possible, with a view to prevent hackers from doing any harm to our board.

However, a few things did not work anymore as they were supposed to, and that meant we had to reimport and recache skins. These actions, and the usual maintenance and backups, has just been carried out. This may have some consequences to several of our members, namely:

1) Skin selections such as Lo-Fi and IP.Board Mobile have to be redone, as previous selections may have well gotten lost in the process of reimporting and recaching.

2) Weird problems may occur, as items and actions not working as they used to, or even resulting in errors. In that case, please do empty your browser caches, as indicated here: http://www.fountainp...17#entry1408317

So far this news item. In case of any further questions or problems, please do post those in Community Feedback, so we can help as quickly as possible resolving those.

Thank you all in advance!

Warm regards,

The FPN Admin Team

The only thing I noticed is that a topic that I stopped watching ages ago started sending me emails again.. But that was an easy fix.

Thanks for all of your hard work!

Could you please clean your browser cache as indicated above? They do work for me.

Thank you to all the Admin for keeping FPN going and running so smoothly!

The only thing I can see that is eating at me after the upgrade is seeing the "IP Board" banner instead of the FPN banner. That kink will get worked out, I'm sure.

Thanks, Kiavonne. That was due to reimporting the skin - fixed now.

I'm new to FPN and was using the iPad to access the Forum.
I can't seem to bring up the ipad keyboard to type within this text box I'm writing in now (I'm on my imac now)
I can however bring up the keyboard to type in the search box at the top right hand corner of the forum page
Is it a limitation of iPad / the forum's text box or am I doing anything wrong
Thanks

Apparently this is a problem of the iPad when used with Safari. Try FireFox or Opera, if you like; that should work.

HTH, warm regards, Wim

Hi
I found a work around. If you change the setting to IP.Board.Mobile or Lo.Fi (at the lower left corner of the bulletin board) the iPad keyboard will appear.
This is how this message is typed.
Hope this helps others using iPad on FPN
