The upgrade seems to have caused an issue with the board, though. Every time I leave it, even just to go to another part of the Bachmann website, it logs me out, even when I check the "always keep me logged in" box. Oh, and I very much like the new website; it's a huge improvement over the old one.

looks nice enough...
BUT the center justified text is a lot harder to read than standard left justified text is  :-\

Very nice upgrade. I did like the left justify as default better. Then we can center if we want to.  The heading and graphics are awesome.

I have to scroll sideways a bit, but not a big deal. My screen is the older 4:3 aspect.

You were right Timothy, there was a bug with cookies and return to the board. You message tipped me off to it's existence.   :)

mmiller exactly where are you seeing content centered? There shouldn't be any centered text. Can you give me details of your setup? Browser, system, etc.

Thanks


Update: Never mind, found it. Fixed.

M Hess:

A couple of issues I am having problem with.

1.  I have to scroll about 20 pixels sideways to view both sides of the screen, never had to do this before. I noticed in the source that the maximum width is "95" ?

2.  When I click the "Preview", it locks up and bar at bottom says "Error on Page". I can post, but not preview.

Thanks
Bob

Well Mr.Hess is to be congratulated for an excellent job. As I was on last night about 01:30 I had no inkling that a change was in the mist. So far I've found no problems everything just works as it should.
Top job Gentlemen, have the day off ;D

Have you tried the "Preview" yet?  I tried on 2 different computers and versions, can't do a preview.

I really like the new graphics, just this slow old dialup that takes so long to refresh, but I have that problem all the time. 


Title: Re: nice Web page upgrade
Post by: JerryB on June 15, 2008, 03:47:17 AM
Very nice upgrade. All the graphics are really pretty and the board now has a very modern appearance. Several new buttons to explore.

All seems to be working here on both my Mac G4 PowerBook OS X 10.4.11 w/ Safari 3.1 and my MacBook OS X 10.5.2 / Safari systems.

Sincere thanks to both mhess and to Bachmann Trains for providing this forum and the update!

Happy RRing,

Jerry

Nice upgrade .  Looks really good on my widescreen LCD Monitor.

Nice upgrade .  Looks really good on my widescreen LCD Monitor.

I just tuned my HP w1907 moniter to maxium colors and brightness, which it was already at, but someone changed it, and this is so impressive to see. Much more  interactive, colorful, and very grafical then the old site, but I'll miss it, maybe. I love how it has an auto-fix thing that so far, no web site has that makes it take the full lenght of my wide screen moniter. Older sites fitted it in the center with blank space, nope, it's finally the width of my internet toolbar!  ;) Great job bachmann, I knew it would happen, but I didn't think it would be so good. At least the buttons are the same, I can still understand everything, so it's not to overwhelming in us not knowing how to work it. Now if only we could be able to use different font, yet again, I think it is easier for some to see this font.

Preview button should now be working.

Preview button should now be working.

Um, this said: ERROR HAS OCCURED:
Session verification failed. Please try logging out and back in again, and then try again.
This happened when I tried to change my forum picture under my name, after it wouldn't let me, and this poped up. Then it poped up when I clicked 'log out' so it won't let me log out to let me change my forum settings. Any help?

Nevermind what I said, must of been a temp. glitch. Nothing big.

About 15 minutes or so ago I couldn't post or logout because the board told me my time had expired and that there was something wrong with verification ???. I deleted all my cookies, logged back in, and that seemed to solve all the problelms.

1) Yes.  It looks nice.

2) Loading maybe a tad slower now?  But acceptable.

3) "Mark all Read" seems to take an age.

4) Could we please have a "Jump To" added to the TOP of the each "sub pages".  One at the top of the "General Discussion" and "HO" etc., etc., to save scrolling down to find the "Jump To"?


Title: Re: nice Web page upgrade
Post by: Yampa Bob on June 15, 2008, 08:04:47 PM
When I try to "modify", get the "Session Verification Failed"
 
Logged out and back, still getting error message.

Sometimes when I try to post, I get the message "Posting session timed out", and it terminates my "session".

Preview now works ok

Roger,
Scroll to the bottom of the page. Now press the Home key on the keyboard. Did it position the page to the top?
For me it did.

Now it works.  Thanks.  But they could still add the "Jump To".  :-)

Are you talking about width or length, mine is widescreen, and it mostly leaves extra space, but not this site. I think it is some sort of auto-ajustment system.


Title: Re: nice Web page upgrade
Post by: az2rail on June 16, 2008, 08:36:54 PM
I'm joking. The web site fits my screen perfect without changing anything. And I seem to be able to do the things some people are having  problems with.

Do you need to delete cookies every time you get on?  I deleted cookies and every thing worked fine.  How ever the next time I go on it would not let me reply.
