Same for me on the mobile site. 

 

Otherwise the forum looks nicer than before 

 

In your mobile browser, click the 'Desktop site' option, then you'll see it  😀

Pls share where to find the desktop option on mobile.  Thanks.

 

 

For my phone, find the icon with the three vertical dots.

When you click on it, you will see a "Desktop site" option:

Then check the box:

That should do the trick.

Anyone can help .. I m using IPhone and open in safari .. I could not found 3 dot coz I want to change to desks top site .. how .? Advance in thanks 

For iPhone it’s not the 3 dots you need to find. Look for the “AA” icon on the left side of your URL address bar and tap on it. It should show the option for desktop/mobile site. 

Be cool, like a breeze...

Do you mean you still can’t find the inbox (messages)? If yes, I realised I need to set the font size to 50% then it will work. Try?

Still no working ... the page still remain same ...

1.  We just did our BlowingWind Annual Forum Version upgrade.

Our Forum Software Provider just released this as a Major Upgrade.
 

  • A brighter UI with more saturation & contrast and simpler overall color scheme
  • Improved typography
  • Better, more consistent, spacing around and between elements, especially on mobile
  • Better logical grouping of sections of each page
  • Reducing underutilized links/buttons on the page and finding alternative ways of making them available
  • Improving how post states are displayed

 

2. There is also a lot of unseen underlying software version upgrade.

The forum developer has indicated that it will be phasing out older historical browsers as well.

 

3. Like all upgrades, there is currently several rough edge which we need to polish.

Expect disruption as we bring the forum offline to do some fixes.

 

4. Some known issues:

- Slow response. High System CPU (Working with Forum Software Developer for a fix)

- Chat

- Search box is messy,

- Some missing spaces here and there.

 

 

5.  If you encounter display issues, please Clear your Browser Cache and check that you are using and up to date Browser. Please report bugs in this thread.

 

6. Our apology for the Forum Downtime due to the upgrade.

 

 

Enjoy !

Waste of space on the right hand side.

 

agree, the newly added additional info column on the right takes up too much space for long threads and better to move this column to the top or just at the bottom, although it is responsive, default setting still seem lopsided, jus sayin'

@HendryTan and Team

 

Well done. It's a vibrant renewal. I hope to join all of the heroes to serve the community. PM me. 

 

Thank you to renovate this home.

 

It's important to review the direction and mission of this website to ensure its sustainability and relevancy to the individual, community and cultural vibrancy. That's the lesson I learnt from Nokia : a contended organization will stop to lost its competition edge if the people stop to search for the positive growing power perpetuating over time to bring about the quality of life and new height of its contribution possible to the world. 

 

Have all the wonderful moments, always. 

 

Regards

GKS

Thank you guys so much for all of the hard work that went into the changes. I am especially happy that quoted posts are now condensed to seven lines (or the equivalent if a photo is quoted). Now we no longer have to scroll down past the same long posts, or sometimes full stories, being quoted by people who refuse to shorten them. Awesome.

1. Status of Bug Fixes for the Forum Software Upgrade 2020.

 

a. With Bern and myself working over the weekend, we have already FIXED majority of the known bugs due to the upgrade.

 

b. The most critical bug which caused the forum to slow down was fixed early this morning.

We checked and believe the forum "Page Response Time" is similar to before the upgrade (ie acceptable).

 

 

2. There is still some "Batch Job" updating some old-data due to the migration.

We are awaiting assistance from the forum software vendor and this will likely take several days to close this issue.

This issue should NOT affect most of our members/guest.

 

 

3. If you find layout issue, please
Clear Browser Cache and try to update your browser to the latest version

 

 

4. Post any issues in this topic.

 

 

Cheers !

Many thanks to Hendry and his team, for fixing the bugs.  I am now generally able to seamlessly access all the functions/features that I used to access previously before the upgrade.  Hope the other guys here are able to as well.

 

Cheers!!

Maybe its just me but I miss the old layout where the EDIT button option is now hidden a way on the top right 3 dots click link.

 

heh I super fast type and being dyslexic, I tend to re-edit a lot. And I made too many more mistakes as it takes me not to EDIT mode but QUOTATION which at times I did not notice and end up correcting my text in quotation, click send and found it was a new reply instead. heheh..

 

** And I did it again when I try to edit this one.

I really like the change of making the Edit option one in the pull-down menu.  I used to mistakenly press the Quote button instead of the Edit when they were side by side.

I also don't hesitate editing a lot.  Not to correct mistakes, but to enhance the post.  When I read it over, I find ways to express better what I want to say.  Is this worth the effort?  YES,  I think.  Self correction is a way to constantly improve one's writing style.
