That is even better Rich. Minimum post count would work really well.

I wouldn't hide anything, it'll only make the forum look less active than it is and that might keep potential new members away. If you want to have private conversations about random stuff, I'd suggest a whatsapp group.

I'm having trouble in trying to upload an avatar. It won't allow me do so as it keeps saying that file is too big?

Hi CP, theres a size limit on the image you can use as an avatar (about 130 x 130 pixels big) - so you may need to get some shrinkage of your image going prior to uploading.

I use MS Paint - resize by pixels.

Or you can go for a swim in icy cold waters.

But more over the first technique works (or if its a Downloaded pic, find a smaller version on the net)

Hope this helps!

Strange that it's not working for you CP, but this place can be tempremental and may not like the size of your avatar.
I'll have a look, but you may need a second choice.

Statistically most "rock spiders" have spent some time in their lives as a church youth group leader.
Think about that.

Won't let me upload one either. Picture size is 100 x 66 and only 25.4KB.

If you'd like, upload it to Imgur and paste the link here. Maybe I can help massage it into a suitable format. imgur.com/

(You can just drag your pic into that webpage to upload).

Same goes for CP and anyone having issues.

Something does seem to have happened to the avatar function.
I decided to change mine, but whatever I did resulted in the same exceeded size message. Kept on going smaller and smaller, but it wouldn't even accept a miniscule 25 x 16 pixels, 18.8kb image. Wouldn't let me upload my original avatar back again either. I checked the size of a couple of existing avatars, and both were larger in all dimensions than those listed by Shane001.

Tried the Kunena Forum website, but under FAQ it looks more to be geared to the forum owner ...

I have a feeling it may relate to avatar galleries in the forum set-up.

Now I got no avatar :(

I'll be in contact with the web people later in the week and will raise these issues if there not fixed by then.

There will be a site software update incoming at some point (part of what Brad will be talking to the web peeps about). Included in that will be a pretty major update of the Kunena Forum software. That will likely address a few buggy things, may come with a slightly updated look, and may temporarily break a few things... expect anything :side:

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Anyway, looks like we've had a facelift! And little to nothing caught fire. Definitely an improvement on both desktop and mobile. Let us know if you have any issues.

Those who have had trouble uploading avatars, I have no idea yet if that issue is helped with the update, but maybe have another crack.

Yeah it's... boldish! Always takes a little while to get used to a theme change. I'll be experimenting with another theme on the weekend, for the purposes of making the front page easier to customise. Not sure if that'll have a visual impact on the forum side.

Nope, still doesn't work.
Also not a fan of the new look or formatting. Just replying with quote I get a tiny window with 2 lines of text only. So you have to scroll even a very short message. Not to mention everything is now a drop down menu.

Did you move to a Microsoft platform? They love making everything more difficult with every version lol!
