Hi all! As you've noticed, we did indeed get some new updates running on EpicSki. Here's a quick run-down of some of the bigger things you'll be seeing:
Signatures are available for Supporters and Sponsors.
You can add text and links, along with bolding and italics (with up to 5 line breaks).
To edit your signature:
Semi-variable width is now applied to all pages.
- Navigate to your Profile page
- Scroll down below your image gallery
- There you should see "Your Forum Signature"
- Underneath that, it says "Edit signature". From here, you can add text and links.
- When you're finished, you can check out the preview and submit it! It will then be applied to all your past posts.
All pages in the forums, as well as wikis and ski/resort pages, will now be able to expand to 256 pixels wider than before. As you resize your browser, the width of the main content will either get bigger or smaller up to a certain point. There are still caps on the minimum width and the maximum width, however there are an additional 256 pixels to play with.Become a Supporter button now has a permanent home at the top right hand side of the header.
This links over to the Wiki with the details on becoming a Supporter.Reply boxes are now in-line
(so no more popover reply boxes). They're just stuck at the bottom now. There is still the option to use the "advanced reply" (which is the full page editor with the last 10 chronological posts).The "Classic" skin got a bit of a touch up.
Now, the darker blue color frames all of the pages with the lighter blue behind the text.There is now a feature to start a new thread while you're viewing a thread.
For example, if you're reading a thread about relocating to Tahoe but you want to know about the schools and the thread you're reading only talks about restaurants, you can click 'New Thread" to start a new thread in the same forum.
In the forums, you can see how many are viewing a sub-forum.
In addition to seeing how many are viewing a particular area, on the Who's Online
page, you can see exactly who is looking at what.
There are a few more minor formatting things (new buttons here and there, a slightly reorganized home page, etc). Hope you enjoy!
