New Message Board Look
Hi all, This weekend I deployed a new message board look and I'm interested in your thoughts.
  • New Overview main page - gives easy access to most popular data (boards, recent threads, and no reply threads).,
  • No groups on left menu - the left side menu was getting too complex so I removed the links to groups in favor of a list on the overview page. Now you don't have to scroll down to go to your favorite board.,
  • All Topics (the old main page) is now an option in the left side menu.,
  • Updated text.
  • Let me know what you think!

    I really like the new color changes. At least I think they're new. I like the blue and green. Pretty nice. The use  of gray seems to be up too. That's a good thing.

    New Quote Post Feature!
    Now you can quote a particular thread post as part of your reply. Check out the new Quote option that is part of every post. Cool I also cleaned up the thread view so that it looks a bit cleaner and contains more white space. Each post of a thread is now separated from the other replies and the thread starter always gets a white background (the rest alternate between light gray and lighter gray). Enjoy!

    New Message Board Software
    Hi all, I spent today updating our message board software. Now you can reply to the middle of a thread. Some message board software use this approach and some use our old approach. I like this new approach because when you reply to a thread it "feels" like you are replying to the whole thread and someone who posted before you could get hurt feelings because they think you are talking about them. I also enhanced some of the display and formatting. Enjoy!

    xml, soap forum
    I am just starting to learn xml in earnest. At this point I know just enough to be dangerous. Is it possible to add xml and soap forums here at Prestwood? If not, is there another topic these questions should be posted in?

    Hi Mary, Funny you should mention dedicated servers. Yesterday, Sunday, we completed our move to a dedicated server so now the website should be much more enjoyable to use. I was just getting ready to start a new thread and mention that. We are still optimizing the new server but we should be stable by the weekend. (Stable meaning we are done optimizing and securing.)

    New 'All Groups' Random Thread Link
    Today I added a "Random MB Thread" to the main message board menu. This link displays a random message board thread from "all threads". Sometimes I like to review old threads just to keep my knowledge up. During this review process, I sometimes add to the threads, but it's mainly a study tool for me. This compliments our group message board "Random MB Thread" link we added a few months ago. Now you can display a random thread from all groups or from the group you're within. To browse all threads randomly, go to the main message board overview page and select "Random MB Thread":

    Drums...!
    Whilst looking for inspiration for a current Paradox project I noticed that our mentor Mike A Prestwood has "drums" listed as an interest., I assume he doesn't mean the 45 gallon variety so can I tempt him into cyber print by saying that even in the UK we are not that out on a limb as amongst others I own a Radio King snare, I am intrigued - tell me more Mr Prestwood !

    Prestwood name change
    We're thinking about changing the name of our company from Prestwood Software & Consulting to just Prestwood Software. Now that The original thought behind the longer name was that we wanted everyone to be able to identify by our name that we are a consulting firm and software maker. The reason we're thinking about shortening it is because it is shorter. Confused Prestwood Software & Consulting is harder say, longer to write, etc. So the central question is, "Is the '&Consulting' required?", , Any thoughts? Big Grin!

    Daniel Kram
    Hello PRestwood
    Hello all out in Prestwood land My name is Daniel Kram. I live in Milwaukee, WI, but if you Googled my name, you would know where I live, so I just saved you some time. (grin) I am a developer in over 10 computer languages with about 20 (ugh) years of experience. Go ahead, you can guess my age now. My primary languages are Delphi (aka Pascal), HTML, XML (if you call it a language cough), and coming up on C# and .Net architecture/framework. I also use Dreamweaver as well as Visual Studio, but I think I am leaning more towards Dreamweaver. I have also done about 3 years of Java, but none lately. Lots of SQL and just now, I am beginning to refactor a MySQL Delphi project to ElevateDB., , I manage a few web sites, none too fancy or anything, but hey, they get the job done. I would like to become an active member here in any area I can be of help. Hope to talk to you soon - well not everyone all at once...

    Server Slow Down
    I just got back from camping in South Lake Tahoe and found the message boards have been slooowwww for days. I rebooted the server and it seems to be working fine now...hmmm...not sure why. I don't know if it was resources, a virus, or a hacker. Oh well., , Tomorrow morning I'm heading back to South Lake Tahoe for camping (my family is there now). I came back to meet with a client for Delphi training for the day). I'll be back Monday. Until then I'll have someone here check the boards daily.

    Hi,, , Yes I have a gmail account - I don't think you have to be invited to get one. Just go to google.com, click on "more", scroll down to Gmail. I entered my cell phone # and they instantly text'ed me a code to enter for the account. , , OR maybe you were saying if you don't have a cell phone you can get an account by invitation instead? If that's the case, I can invite you. Just didn't know about that feature. , ~ Vicki

    Yes, Microsoft has threatened to get rid of MS Access several times but the reality is they didn't and they keep making little improvements. I wish Corel did the same with Paradox.
