PentaxWorld Maintenance and Downtime
« on: February 15, 2016, 08:46:35 PM »
First of all, our apologies for the downtime you experienced in the last few weeks in accessing PentaxWorld.com.

We migrated to a new server, and we didn't expect the old forum software to have conflict with the new server, hence we have to upgrade our forum software to the latest version. It took longer and more difficult than what I would have expected for the upgrade, hence the longer down time.

Our apologies once again. We are still in turning to make the sites better. Let us know if you experienced any issue.
Yours truly,
Kho King

Thanks, the effort to keep PW alive is much appreciated.

However, I'm completely lost  - it appears that no historic threads are marked read??

And the previous access to the 10 newest threads/posts isn't available??

Access to clear new registrations??

No trees were killed or injured in the sending of this email, but billions of electrons were really, really agitated.

Nice to see you on the forum Kho. Thank you for your effort putting the site back online.

Just a question, as Pacerr already mentionned, there was a list of the last 10 posts to the forum. Any idea where this list is? It was really handy, especially with the low traffic...

In the upper right hand corner, barely visible beyond "Hellow, *user*", is an arrow that offers 'unread' posts.

But once read, how do you find them again among all the other sub-forums and threads without knowing the sub-forum?

I'm having a hard time imagining this to be a popular 'upgrade'. Usability, color selections, and access to index items is poor.

I finally found the pending registrations page in the ADMIN tab.

Dear Pacerr,
Sorry for the late reply. I wasn't familiar with this new forum settings, so it takes time for me to get the recent posts out. It is now shown at the bottom of the forum.
