    Lightbulb New Site Feature: Improved News page

    Now when you browse www.edugeek.net you should get our new improved homepage.
    All the content from joomla has not been migrated yet but it should be complete tonight.

    New features:
    • 1024x768 compatible
    • Forum posts are instantly updated
    • Login box issues should be fixed
    • Tweaked theme
    • Random Social Groups listed
    • Search the forums box
    • Live Users online
    • Site Stats
    • New avatar style login box
    • Calendared dates shown
    • Todays Birthdays
    • And more to come...
    • Better polls
    • You should now have a mobile compatible frontpage


    NOTE: This may be tweaked depending on server load so things may get thinned out to reduce queries.

    Post comments/thoughts here

    Phew, that should fix a lot of issues with the site

    I think it's a lot better now. The log out button still doesn't log me out though.

    Can you try clearing out your cookies and restarting the browser. It works for me on the new system fine, just not sure whats happened at your end.

    The box at the top right corner where my avatar now sits is pushing down the text underneath it ... I can see the line

    You last visited

    but the PMs unread etc are obscured.

    Here is a screen shot...

    On the main page when you click Your Notifications it doesn't display the drop down menu. Is that happening for anyone else?

    Possibly caused by the size of your avatar? It looks fine here, but my avatar is not as "high" as yours.
