Something odd I've spotted in the last day or two - if I go to the website front page, it has two lines of text at the top, both saying the same thing, evidently an error message:

Notice: Undefined index: host in /home/content/o/l/d/oldmarcus/html/forum/Sources/Load.php on line 2648

Bold here matches what's displayed. This happens whether I navigate to the site URL directly, or follow the link from the menu on forum pages. It happens with Firefox version 34.0.5 (I think that's current) and IE version 9.

Seems to be to do with cookies and session tracking on the forum, looking at the code in question. I get different error messages (and more of 'em) if I log out.

SOTK, thoughts?

I was playing around with some settings earlier, I've changed them back now, sorry :) .

No worries - I'm glad it was so easily fixed.

I've had a suggestion that the "welcome to Exilian" text on the homepage would look better left-aligned as it's got too much spacing in the justification from all the long words. Could we try that and see if it looks better?

I'm pretty sure the consensus is that left aligned always looks better than full justification.

Meanwhile, I think it might be time to pack the Christmas banner away for another year.

Mhm, agreed. Christmas is over enough to take it down... although I do like the look of it. :)

Ta-da  :)

Meanwhile, was anyone going to make a Cyril & Methodius Day and an Exilian Day version?

Yus:)

I think I still like the idea of doing Cyril & Methodius with stacks of books, inkwells, and parchment (we could just put the title into Cyrillic, but I feel since we seem to use it as a reading/books thing some bookstacks would look better, the Cyrillic title would just confuse most people).

And for Exilian Day, confetti and party hats and cakes and stuff are definitely what's needed :)

Maybe we could have the Exilian on a large Parchment. With some stacks of books covering some of the writing in the foreground.

Sure thing, I'll do it tomorrow :) .
