Adjusting to the New Forum



Since a few people are having a bit of trouble adjusting, just thought I'd add this little bit of info and some people don't seem to know about it.

You have a little bit of flexibility in customising your layout to suit you.

It might be why you are having a little bit of difficulty, as some settings may have changed for you.




Look & Layout


To access these settings, you need to go to My Profile>Customise Profile>Modify Profile>Look and Layout








Here you can edit quite a few settings that may help you feel a little more comfortable with forums.
You may be missing one or two of these settings as I have a moderation account.




Personal Messaging

I saw someone mention the PMs before, so I thought I'd add this as well.









Again, it's just a few more settings you can edit to change to suit you.
I know I've changed a few.


------------------------------------------------------


Anyway, I know this may be common knowledge for most people,
but some people weren't aware of these settings as they are a little hidden in dropdown menus.

As I said before elsewhere, the forums haven't changed all that drastically,
apart from cosmetics and look.

The functionality and layout is essentially the same.


Happy gaming.

This is something you'd need to discuss with one of the devs.

what about the avatar? I see yours is not resized but this is what happened to mine



Not that it's a big deal, but other pics posted (in mr and miss epw for example) also look the same



Any ways I can fix it?

Hmm.
Looks to be just how the new layout is automatically resizing images so they fit.
You may need to adjust your avatar pic itself.
The new avatar size is 162px × 165px.
Not sure why mine seems fine, unless it's because it was already a square image,
which yours doesn't seem to be.
Looks as though it is squashing rectangular images into squares.

As for your event shot, might just be the way that the forum has automatically resized your image to fit in the thread.
However clicking on the bar at the top should show it in its right proportions,
which I would do during the event anyway, to see the shot in its full size.

Echo might be able to help you more. She's the brains when it comes to this stuff.

If the size and shape are the problems I'll leave it like it is :police: I was more worried about pics posted but I'll get used to it I guess, thank you O:-)

I'll pass this on anyway, just to check it out.

Thank you for this guide, it was very helpful. Something else I was wondering is if there was any way to permanently change your font for when you post? I haven't used epw forums very much so if there is, I can't seem to find it.

Not that I have found (and would greatly love).

I just copy paste my preferred posting style from a sticky note on my desktop, like a pro.

Lmao. xD Alright. Thanks for the quick response. Would be an awesome feature if it could be implemented.
