  1. Been meaning to get the tailgate loom sorted for a while now but mate hasn't had much free time - so as he was looking at the rough running issue and waiting for the car to warm up he thought he'd also take a look at the tailgate loom and here's what we found.... Moral of the story, get it sorted as soon as you start having issues! A lucky escape looking at how bad the loom had melted and the scorch marks around it! Even luckier there's a common earth block in the roof lining just infront of the rear speaker and the burnt loom was confined to between the tailgate and the common earth! At no point have I ever smelt any burning nor had any fuses blown!!! We did strip lots more apart and followed things back through the main loom to check for more issues but luckily none were found! New replacement loom made and soldered in and things are all working again.

    Afternoon! Another change to the forum is the new classifieds module - all new adverts need to use the new module. Existing adverts & sections will stay in place until the current adverts expire - posting of new threads has been disabled but replies to existing threads are still enabled. Any issues with the new classifieds module, please let me know!

    Classified Adverts

    Since moving back to the forums based classifieds we seem to be having issues with unnecessary comments in threads again. If you have something constructive and worthwhile to say we're all for that. If the whole point of your post is to take a pop at another member, belittle their advert or any other derogatory comments then please refrain - these kind of posts may be edited or removed without notice. Repeat offences will be met with a 7 day suspension followed by a ban for any further offences. Please respect other forum members, not everyone's views will be the same.

    Problem viewing forum

    My own website is hosted on the same server and I migrated the forum onto it's own new IP addresses yesterday evening - looks like some peoples ISP/dns servers aren't honouring the 5 minute TTL that's set and caching it for much longer hence you got a different site.

    Also been answered before - classifieds sections are auto pruned after 90 days and when migrating to the new software version is automatically does a recount of posts so any that were auto pruned will no longer be counted.

    It's already been answered more than once! Click the dot to the left of the thread title.
  7. It's nearly that time again! The latest version of the forum software has been release and we'll be upgrading to it in the not too distant future (once a couple more minor bug fix release have been done) Feel free to have a browse and test - emails aren't working but that's deliberate to stop duplicate membership renewals going out and confusing people. Login details will be the same as the main forum from around Monday. http://sandbox.bmw5.co.uk/ Let me know what you think, good or bad! Personally I quite like it and it's one of the better upgrades and they've tried to simplify quite a few things. Known Issues: usernames aren't coloured by group (pending updated 3rd party module)
  8. This thread is closed, the sandbox site is no longer being tested as we're now live on IPB 4.

    Toolboxes and tool kits.

    I have the halfords industrial cabinet in my office too (bought in November when they were on offer)! And I've had the 200 piece toolkit for a while now with no issues! EDIT: still on offer: http://www.halfords.com/workshop-tools/storage/tool-chests-cabinets?partnumber=169790,169774,120687,120729,120703,120711,120695,120786&sort=price-low-to-high

  12. I've just updated the payment methods for the store with a new payment gateway which takes cards directly in preference to the previous PayPal payment gateway. Unfortunately due to the way the new forum software works the previous PayPal subscriptions also had to be cancelled so memberships will no longer auto-renew and will need setting up again via the new gateway. Apologies for the inconvenience but hopefully stripe will now streamline the way things work over the clunky PayPal method. I've also updated the gold membership options - there are now 2 available: single year or perpetual.

    Software upgrade

    Actually it wasn't - the permissions for those forums are the same as before as they were migrated across so what was available then is available now. Tweaked anyway.
  15. The upgrade did a post recount as part of the upgrade - if most of your posts were in the classifieds sections which auto prune after 90 days then your post count would be lower.

    You can just use the backspace key to delete the quote in the edit box, no need to clear caches or anything. my iPad isn't remembering the quote when going back to the thread either?

    The majority of the info on the desktop version is also available on the mobile version - moreso than the 3.x software!

    Because there is no dedicated 'mobile' version anymore, it's all part of the same skin.

    The star appears on popular posts instead of the dot - in your case it's greyed out as you've read all the posts in that thread.
