Welcome to Active!
Hey Everyone

Well, here it is at last! We hope you like what you see. We wanted to get this online as soon as we could, so things aren't quite fully up to scratch yet. These forums (another one should go live next week) for example are a little basic. I apologise in advance for the dreadful 'New Post' graphic!! We should be making plenty of improvements though over the coming weeks. Anyway, constructive feedback welcome as always!

I love this!  Everything is nice and simple and you kept the basic structure of DVDAnswers.  Great job!

Interesting.  I refreshed DVDAnswers on the General Discussion forum this morning and got an empty page.  I thought all that the forum was gone.  I'm glad to see that it isn't.

Edit note:  I've noticed that the join dates are a little off.  I don't think any of us could have joined in 1970. Confused

Aye, welcome to the site. Oh, Adrian Jones, the date bug will be fixed in a few days, or so I'm told Wink

One more bug - if you wanna call it that. But, it would be nice to have the ability to edit our previous posts as we all mess up frequently Wink

Oh and thanks Tony, so do I

EDIT - lol, what the hell? The instant I complained about not being able to edit, it gives me the option. Laugh

Tom,

I'm sorry about this, but when I posted, I double clicked a few times and the same message came up multiple times. Feel free to deleted my posts.

Oh, by the way, does the main page contain the same amount of news items per column as the old site?

No, probably less at the moment. Might bump it up at some stage. At some point I want to add a second layer of news too. For example a box down the bottom with the top five 'Big Announcements' or something. We'll get around to it eventually Wink

oh and one thing else Tom, there is no codes guide on the side - do they still work (for adding url's, etc) or are new codes coming?

If you click goto Advanced in the comment settings, you can click ActiveCode which will bring up a list of the commands. The same with smilies.

I really wanted to find a pic of Jake Lloyd now to accompany it. Perhaps I will...


"YIPPEE!!"

Jeeze, I did an image search and he got pretty big over the last 6 years...pretty soon I'll think twice about calling him a s**tty child actor.
