March 13th 2017

When I established the forums in 2005 it was to offer a more richer web experience and greater functionality than the platform where we started this social adventure in 2003, Yahoo Groups. The forums were once a busy hive of activity and provided locals and visitors with a wealth of information just like the Geocaching Ireland Discussion Group on Facebook today.

It was a time where we didn't have the many social media platforms we have today, and it was a different time in terms of mobility and technology. There was no instant access to information, no Google Maps and a very limited base map on your GPSr. Mobile connectivity for me was a 9600bps Infrared connection from a Nokia to a laptop and in later times to a PDA using WAP.

As we moved into the social media era so did our forums users. Geocaching Ireland moved there too, and we have a thriving community on the Geocaching Ireland Discussion Group on Facebook. As a result, forum activity isn't what it used to be and I have taken the decision to disable new registrations to the forums and to make the forums read only so any information there can still be accessed.

The discussion hasn't ended, it has just moved. Join us on the Facebook Geocaching Ireland Discussion Group .

Time and date

Any chance of making the time and date on messages more prominent/easier read for those of us with slightly less than perfect vision?

Edited to add: and why has my banner thingie gone wrong? :cry:

Not really. You can increase the size of a webpage using your browser. In IE for example you can use the Zoom feature.

Not quite that blind ....yet :roll: The size is OK, what I meant was it's quite faint. Can't anything be done about that? Maybe a different colour or something?

Should be able to do it by changing the stylesheet.css

element is td.postbottom

Code: Select all

td.postbottom {
-moz-background-clip:border;
-moz-background-inline-policy:continuous;
-moz-background-origin:padding;
background:#EEF6F9 url(images/profile.gif) repeat-x scroll left top;
border-color:#F4F9FB #BBD8E7 #BBD8E7 #F4F9FB;
border-style:solid;
border-width:1px;
color:#929A9F;               
font-size:10px;
padding:2px;
vertical-align:middle;
white-space:nowrap;
}

Suggest changing to

Code: Select all

td.postbottom {
-moz-background-clip:border;
-moz-background-inline-policy:continuous;
-moz-background-origin:padding;
background:#EEF6F9 url(images/profile.gif) repeat-x scroll left top;
border-color:#F4F9FB #BBD8E7 #BBD8E7 #F4F9FB;
border-style:solid;
border-width:1px;
color:#2981B4;           <---------HERE
font-size:12px;           <---------HERE
font-weight:bold;         <---------HERE
padding:2px;
vertical-align:middle;
white-space:nowrap;
}

I'll do it when I get a chance. I've been away and work is busy which means I have little time to do stuff.

Cool, Thanks. I only updated the post as I thought you missed it as it turned into a fix my sig thread;-)

Don't let it get in the way of caching time though!

No I was aware alright....I just didn't want to data roam while away as it's quite costly, and to be honest it's not the kind of change I want to make while I'm on the road.

Hey Donnacha, no problem mate. It was only a query, no pressure :D As and when, if you feel it is merited.
