    Forum Updates

    I made some changes to the forum style template/theme - especially noticeable on the front page.

    To see them, go to the front page https://whitenations.com and either clear your cache or hold down the Ctrl key and hit F5 at the same time to refresh the page with new icons and updated coding.

    If don't Ctrl+F5 refresh or clear your cache, it may take up to a week for the changes to become noticeable.

    If you are viewing WN Forum on a phone or tablet, everything should work fine as is. However, if you are viewing WNF on a computer screen, I suggest zooming/enlarging the page to 130%.

    In Opera Browser - https://opera.com - the option is in the browser Menu. Buggered if I know where it is on other browsers like Firefox and the rest. You may have to look for a for a browser Addon/Extension. If you are using Opera, zooming in/or out on any page on WNF will effect all pages at WhiteNations.com but will not effect any other sites. If you want to zoom in/out on all sites to a default percentage%, it's in the settings in Opera.

    Chrome works much like Opera - but if you use Chrome, you agree that GOOGLE OWNS YOU.

    Just a note about zoom - if you use a wheel mouse, just hold down the CTRL key and finger your wheel, in or out.

      Also noticed that the threads are dated in days and weeks now rather than in 09/14/19 etc and much easier to read.
      The Chat has been there for years, but it needed its own board/topic and updating for modern browsers. Of course the "Chat" board can be used for anything within reason.

      I was pissed off with the AM/PM needlessly taking up space so changed it to 24 hour time and discovered a "Detailed" option for dating activity and posts. Glad you liked the change - which I'd only completed less than an hour before.

      Also, I finally figured out where the annoying Insecure Content was on the posting pages. It was bloody Facebook garbage hard-coded into the template. That means WNF is now completely secure as per SSL standards.

      FYI: I stole this template - a paid template BTW - from a bunch of Turks. I then converted it for our use making too many changes and additions to list. And no, I do not speak, read or understand inferior Turk gibberish. So it was a lot more difficult than it otherwise would have been had the template been in English or at least a Euro language.

      Any recent improvements I have made to the template are related to my own improvements in skills since my initial theft and repurpose some years ago of this Turk Template we call the Blue Eyed Devil Template.



      To Recap: Use Ctrl + F5 to refresh your page or clear your cache. Background, a banner, status icons, font sizes, font styles and font types, security (SSL) has been patched up, general coding and more have been updated. If you don't refresh, you wont see the changes for some time.

      I don't expect there to be any more changes to this template ... unless it of course needs it.

      And Remember, if you're on a standard computer, you may want to zoom in for a better view:

        All updates are complete. W.N.F. has been upgraded to the latest and greatest forum software that money can buy - about $400 bucks.

        The template is complete. If you don't like it, pick one of the others from the list on the bottom left. All other templates are just a colour variation on the Default W.N.F. Black. I will not be editing them beyond adding the W.N.F. banners to all.

        Everything should now be working.

        * It took me an afternoon upgrading - reparing database errors on the fly.
        * It took me another day to understand vBulletin 5's unconventional system.
        * There is much that is incompatible with the previous vBulletin 3 - that includes the way the front page was previously presented.
        * And it took me another two days to sort out the template - again due to VB unconventional system.
        * There are some things I just do not like - but I'll live with it.

        Also, there's a built in vbMessenger that is apparently better than the PM/Personal Message Centre, and is supposed to be a pseudo Forum Chat. Buggered if know ... I leave that to you to figure out.

        Enjoy the new version of W.N.F. and let me know if you find any errors.

          Thanks to Cailen for filling me in regarding the security warnings, though I'm a bit worried about how widespread the issue may be overall (and thus how many others are currently dissuaded from entering).

            No worries, brother.

            As I said to Defiance in an email:

            I went to the webhost for WNF and cancelled the temporary security certificate they had issued and ordered a new one. The new security certificate is not a temporary one. It also seems to have fixed the problem.

              I just logged on and got the security warning. I also got the memo from Dreamhost that it will be resolved shortly.

                You may have noticed some changes. Whether or not, WNF has been upgraded to the latest version of the available software. The good news is that I was able to restore the custom status icons that were once used in WNF, and add a few more.

                If you haven't noticed any changes and you're on a computer, press Ctrl+F5 (Refresh). Whether you Refresh or not, you'll eventually catch up.

                  I have made some changes ...

                  * WNF may go a bit faster

                  * Deleted hundreds of spam bots

                  * Reactivated signature views for everybody

                  All the other changes you can actually see are because yesterday's upgrade allowed me to make those visual changes that were not available until now.

                    While searching for answers to the User Settings access problem, I stumbled upon a code to give you all round avatars. I then customised the code to enlarge the avatars and allow ovals as well as the default perfectly round. I don't know about you, but I prefer the new, rounded avatars.

                    * If you choose, you may now select text and QUOTE only the selected text. Otherwise, quoting works as it always worked.

                    * WNF Search has been replaced with Google Joogle Search. I tried DuckDuckGo but it didn't work.
