  • Welcome back to UKMIX!

    Welcome back!

    The upgrade went without a hitch (a minor issue with the passwords - on the subject of passwords, if you're having trouble signing into your account, please clear your browser cache and try again) - thanks to Dave for all his help.

    Now, first thing you'll have noticed is that the layout is a bit different - eventually, we will have a new logo for UKMIX and the default theme will move to blue and white but until then, I've tried to do a version of the orange UKMIX that a lot of people liked and you are free to use that (and this will still be available after the default theme is changed for those who wish to keep it). I'm on the look out for someone to create us a logo, if anyone knows a person, please let me know.

    I think the most signfiicant benefit you will immediately notice is just how much better the new software is on mobile - please do give it a go! You have access to the full range of formatting options and the software is compatible with different screen sizes - this is very important as more than 60% of those who access UKMIX do so through their mobile device these days.

    Have a look round! I appreciate that it might take some time for some of you to get used to the software but it's here to stay - therefore, please raise any issues you see in a professional manner and I'll see if I can fix them.

    Snagging List

    Please let me know if you spot any issues, I'll add them to here and work through them.

    I recognise that there is an issue with historic mentions - I will look into whether we can fix that. There is a tagging system in the new software that comes as standard - just use the "@" symbol as normal.

      I can't see my inbox post last May, it looks like they've been deleted?

          Welcome back!

          Will need to get a bit more into the new design. It's weird to have something new again, but first look seems nice!

          Thanks so much for all your work, Wayne!

            I'm trying to see more than 10 threads on a page but so far doesn't allow me too.

                    Glad we got an update, as I'm always for newer stuff. But on the first look everything is too big and spread out. The previous version seemed more compact and cleaner.

                    Also it would be good if we could see who posted the last post in a thread. It doesn't say so now.

                          Agree. Especially the banner. So huge it takes all of my phone screen lol.

                            I just logged in via my laptop (as I always do). I'll have a look around.

                            Is there an app to download for mobile phones?

                              My favorite way to read and post was to go to "new posts" on top of every page. Is it still there somewhere?

                                  In the Latest Posts part of the firts page not all posts appear... Is there a way to set it so all new posts are there?

                                    There's also a glitch with notifications. When you click and see the notification, then click on it it takes you to the message/post/mention/whatever, but the notification balloon still remains and won't be removed unless you click again. Then it will take you to the notification area which is empty (because you already checked it) and then the red balloon will be finally gone.

                                      Yes, this is what I always used. I hope it makes a return because it's obviously not there anymore. The Latest Topics at the bottom isn't nearly the same experience.

                                        So the first problem was that I couldn’t log in for an hour now. It kept telling me that I used the wrong password when that wasn’t the case.

                                        Unfortunately I don’t like the new layout (so far). I really liked the old one and I thought it was (almost) perfect. I hope that it will grow on me though and I appreciate all the work you put into this forum, Wayne,

                                        However, I do like the fact that emojis are more accessible for mobile users now.

                                          Yeah this new updated version on the mobile will take some time getting used to.

                                          But thanks Wayne for all the hard work, and its great that Ukmix is back up so soon!! <3

                                                I found it. There's a setting for it in user settings - there's a check box on the account tab to show signatures. Not sure why this is deselected by default?

                                                  Like others have said, this will take some getting used to, as is the case with most changes, but many thanks for the effort, Wayne!
